Roll up, roll up for circus workshops

Mon, September 11, 2017

A circus project aimed at adults with learning disabilities or mental health issues is coming to Portstewart and Ballycastle this autumn.

The Streetwise Circus Aurora programme will give participants a unique opportunity to have fun while learning skills including plate spinning and uni-cycling in a safe, friendly environment.

Workshops will take place every Wednesday from October 4th at Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart from 11.30am - 1pm. In Ballycastle they will be held in Sheskburn from 2pm - 3.30pm.

This project is funded by the Spirit of 2012 Challenge Fund, and will continue until the end of 2018. Get involved and find out what your hidden skills are!

For more information on how to book a place contact Community Arts Engagement Officer, Shauna McNeilly on 028 7083 1400 or email
