JL Circus

Join this inspirational community of young people taking part in our free circus and drama activity.

Expect to drop balls, fall off pyramids, get dizzy doing forward rolls, trip over skipping ropes and accidently knock a neighbour with your diablo. At JL Circus we laugh through tricky times and support each other to keep going. During our sessions we build the confidence needed to keep picking that ball up off the floor and juggle whatever this world has to throw at us.

We are an inclusive youth circus, open to anyone who dares, and dedicated to finding and supporting the activity that suits you. Whether it's team work or solo, stilt-walking or plate-spinning, centre stage or behind the scenes, we believe  everyone can find their place and bring something magical to our awesome groups of young circus artists.

JL Circus workshops are free, delivered by professional circus artists, open to young people aged 4 to 18, and take place in venues across Haringey during term time or online when necessary.

Come and try out a session:

Juniors (ages 8–12): 4pm–5.15pm

When the world stops, JL Circus continues! If it’s not possible to meet face to face, we run an online provision that includes digital classes and fortnightly tasks set by our artists in JL Circus: Quarantine Sessions (see below).

A really fun, safe environment in which I can hang out with my friends and learn new, confidence boosting skills that help me with my coordination and determination


After the Zoom session they would usually be buzzing about the games, the new tricks they had learned and were always a bit sad it was already over.
