Questions?   Submit   Based in a magnificent Victorian power station adjacent to Hoxton Square, London, we involve thousands of people in circus arts every year. Our work includes the UK’s only BA Hons degree in Circus Arts, progressive training for under 18s and professional development opportunities for performers. We are a registered charity - over half of the annual income needed to run the National Centre comes from grants and donations.

This blog consists of our own posts and content we have shared from others' Tumblr and Instagram accounts.
