What we do
Creating circus and street theatre with community participants has been core to the work of Let’s Circus since our inception. Using the skills and experience of our artistic team to foster creativity within the public is a significant motivating factor behind our work, and we take pride in the long-lasting impact that our projects have created. We’ve developed community arts projects across the UK and Europe, and taken international teams to generate projects in Australia, Kenya and South Africa.
