‘Circus Skills Showcase’ at Leeds Castle – See a show, have a go!
Perfect your juggling and other circus skills in a fun packed showcase at Leeds Castle this half term.
From the 18 to the 24 February, local performers Simon Chainey and his assistant Chris, as seen on ITV’s ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and ‘Take Me Out’, will be showcasing their circus skills with hourly family shows from 11am.
With lots of audience participation and friendly competition between themselves, the instructors will demonstrate how traditional circus toys should be used.
The shows will be followed by a hands on workshop, where children and adults can learn skills including juggling, hula hoops, plate spinning, diablo and object balancing.
There is always something going on at Leeds Castle so during your visit, come and see our breath-taking falconry display opposite the Circus Skills Showcase marquee. Shows take place at 1.30pm daily during half term.
After working up an appetite, children will love our half term ‘jester ice-cream’ with three exciting flavours and a Smarties topping for just £3 and ‘clown cookies’ available from our Fairfax Restaurant.
