Come one, come all to the most exciting circus in town—your circus! Kids will love this series of workshops in the park with Westside Circus, developed to be a relaxed and engaging introduction to the art and skills of the travelling show. These organised workshops are for young people of all abilities and backgrounds. Learn tumbling, juggling, diablo, acrobatics, gymnastics, acrobalance, tight wire, rola bola and more. You’ll be amazed at the skills you can learn and develop in a short amount of time with Westside Circus’s experienced instructors.

Westside Circus specialises in helping young people master skills in the circus classroom, helping to build self-esteem and teaching smart risk-taking behaviour, strategies to develop resilience, leadership and team-building.

Best for ages 6–13yrs. The workshops are free, but booking is required – please book here.

In collaboration with

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
