Coronavirus, an update from Active Cornwall

The quality of local circus is recognised with Olympic Inspire Mark

Circo Kernow

Cornwall’s circus school and the Celtic Youth Circus have been awarded the Inspire Mark as part of London 2012 Inspire programme.

Circo Kernow is currently starting the only free accredited circus training course available to ages 15 years plus… no experience necessary!

Featuring training in clown, dance, acrobatics, trapeze and circus skills; this course had been extremely successful in boosting confidence, fitness and finding job opportunities for its trainees.

Based in Penryn and Falmouth there are also training sessions in Truro, Hayle and Redruth. For further information, visit or call 01326 373626.

The Celtic Youth Circus brings together young talented circus artists from Eire, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall to train for a week with professionals. The final show is performed publicly and filmed; and this year the event will take place at Cardiff’s Millennium stadium.
