“CircUs!” Weekend at Greentop Circus

13 Feb

24th and 25th March 1.00 – 5.00pm. A weekend of circus celebrating Circus’s 250th anniversary for all the family.

2018 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of circus in London in 1768 and Sheffield’s Greentop Circus centre is joining national celebrations with a packed open weekend of spectacular shows and chances for you to join in.

Performances include:

“The Boulderers”: a new outdoor show by dance/acrobatic company Kapow commissioned by Greentop and The Civic, Barnsley.

“Cirque de la Lune”: a brand new show by Greentop Youth Circus celebrating circus’s history. An exquisite and commodious circus from a bygone “golden” era. See daring, aerial agility. Witness unimaginable menageries and … admire equestrian exploits! All re-imagined through the eyes of the Victorian child apprentices.

Family circus cabaret: professional artists and youth circus stars with spectacular acts that stun and surprise.

Performances will be accompanied by special open workshops including juggling, acrobatic balance and stilt walking, sideshows of food and Greentop films of projects with young people from the Grimesthorpe neighbourhood.

CircUs! weekend is supported by Arts Council England and is part of a national programme of events celebrating the birth of circus circus250.org

Sheffield Volunteering Fair

6 Feb

Our Volunteering Fair is only a month away! There are still a few stalls available for our event on Thursday 1st March, at Sheffield Town Hall. Book a stall for your organisation here.

The event will be held on Thursday 1st March from 10am-4pm in the Reception Rooms at the Town Hall, which are on the first floor and wheelchair accessible with lift access.

Our Volunteering Fair, last October, was the first one that we’d had at the Town Hall and also our first joint fair with Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union. There were over 500 visitors and 64 charities on the day looking for volunteers, with the Lord Mayor speaking about the importance of volunteering in Sheffield. The Lord Mayor will be opening our event this time.

The Volunteering Fair will be a great way for you to recruit volunteers, and is free for visitors and open for everyone to attend. The Students’ Union will be publicising the event, and The Volunteer Centre and VAS will also be advertising the fair to make sure a wide range of people attend.

You can book a table for the full day, for 10am-1pm (AM option) or for 1-4pm (PM option). If you are not able to book using Eventbrite, please contact us.
