Clowning around

RUNNING away with the circus just got a little easier, with Circus Joseph Ashton launching its own institute of circus arts.

The long-running circus will run classes for children, adults and teens on the flying trapeze, acrobatics, trampolining and juggling, the aim being to develop confidence, self esteem and physical ability.


The circus is setting up on Carrington Street, O’Connor and are already taking enrolments for mid-term classes.

At the end of the year, students will perform under the big top, and one will win a paid scholarship to run away with the Joseph Ashton Circus for a year. For information head to or email
