Although our circus skills workshops are based in the heart of Cambridgeshire, near March and Ely, half way between Cambridge and Peterborough. “THE JESTERS SCHOOL OF JESTERING” provides circus skills workshops all over the country and beyond. Running fun yet educational workshops for all types of events including; birthday parties, schools, clubs, the scouting and guides movements as well as festivals and medieval reenactments. Our circus skills workshop roots are strongly based on the principles of fun, safety and educational workshops for everyone, regardless of age, ability or needs. We are regularly hired not just by some of England’s premier festivals and country shows, but also by Europe’s largest and best medieval festivals.


Our Staff;

All of our staff are D.B.S. accredited and hand picked, not just for their skills but also for their ability to teach in a fun and inclusive way.

We can supply workshops in scarf, ball and club juggling, as well as flower sticks, diabolo, plate spinning
and of course devilsticks.

 Informal workshops;

These are “drop in’s” (popular at festivals, shows and other events), where people of all ages are free to come and go as they wish.

Formal workshops;

(popular with schools, youth clubs and other organizations). These are designed for up to 30 people at a time and start with a set funny and educational intro, in which we show the students how to use the equipment safely before splitting them into groups that can rotate around the equipment, allowing every one ample time to try everything.

Peats fellow director, Claire Simms A.K.A. Jester Dragonfly, is not only a great jester in her own right, but also the district guider for our local girl guides.

So we put our heads together and came up with a package especially designed to get whole brownies units through through their circus performers badge in one session. We supply the teachers, circus and art equipment ourselves. All you need to supply is Brownies, their leaders and the badges.

Not only do we do all the above, but because we genuinely believe in the social importance of the girl guiding association, we supply these workshops at a special, heavily discounted price. For more information on what these workshops entail, please use the following link.
