Circus Space

A collection of individuals with a stake in the future of circus establish Circus Space in an old timber yard in Islington. A school, a devising space, a venue, the yard hosts adult and youth classes, practicing artists, and regular Circus Space cabarets. In 1994 Circus Space moves in order to take up residence in an old Victorian power station in Hoxton (pictured), and from there quickly launch the first ever BTEC diploma course for circus. Circus Space goes on to offer the country’s first BA in circus skills in 1999, the alumni of which form or join many of the UK’s most significant contemporary circus companies.
