Junior Leader Scheme - ABCirk

  • Published in News

ABCirk - Junior Leader Scheme for Youth Circus, is a project for youth circus members who might be considering becoming circus tutors. The scheme began in November 2016 and will last until August 2018 and is funded by Erasmus+ through the Irish National Agency Leargas.

In November, we hosted European visitors from CIRQUEON from Prague and Cirkus LeGrando from Brno, Czech Republic for the Kick-off meeting of this Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership project. Over the next two years members from the three organisations will work together to share best youth circus practices, learn circus and leadership skills and have loads of fun in the process.

Each partner organisation will pick five motivated young people who will take part in the project and learn about circus teaching from their peers and experienced tutors. The group will come together three times in Ireland and Czech Republic including participation in the youth circus festival Freš Manéž in June 2018.


Winter Cabaret

  • Published in News

On Sunday December 11th the Tweenies and Senior members of Galway Community Circus will perform their Winter Cabaret. We invite you to join us as they present two shows - one starring our 12-14 year olds and another with our 15-20 year olds. 
Our teenage members have been working hard developing their circus skills this term and have created this feast of entertainment for everyone to enjoy - we cannot wait to see what they have produced!

There will be a bake sale and other fundraising events on the day with all proceeds going towards the purchasing of new circus equipment for Galway Community Circus. If you have the time to make something for the bake sale it would be hugely appreciated!

Tweenies show: 3.30-4.30pm
Seniors show: 6-7pm
Entrance: €5 for adults and €3 for children/ OAP
(Children under 2 years go free)

We hope to see you there!
