Welcome One and Welcome All

In 2009 Travelling Light Circus formed in Manchester, England. The magic began when a group of fantastic performers, engineers and artists came together and mixed our creative strengths – a love of light and fire and science, with a passion to entertain.

Now we wow audiences of all ages around the UK with our fire juggling, poi spinning, walkabout entertainers, street theatre, art installations, LED light and glow shows plus so much more. As well as all sorts of playful and vibrant performances in the arts world, we can create shows on demand for clients in the corporate world.

And so we grow and grow…

These days the guiding lights of the circus are Andy, Dan and Shona. With our own personal areas of expertise: stiltwalking, story-telling and science (Andy); fire, circus and workshops (Dan) and dance (Shona), we collectively, along with the rest of our circus family, make magical performances, characters, events and shows.

For instance, since its début at Enchanted parks, Gateshead, more than 30,000 people have seen our mind-bending Pendulum Wave Machine at events around the country. In the shape of our 5-minute performance piece – Pendula Fantastica – this entrancing machine has been adapted specially for international audiences. This year it is going on tour so it could be coming to an event near you. It premieres at London’s street arts event the Greenwich and Docklands International Arts Festival.

Which brings us nicely around to say, if you do ever want to hire us for a kid’s party, a corporate event or commission us for an arts festival, we can brighten up any event on the calendar.

Come join the circus and let your imagination run away with us.
