Performances

Over 30 years, Skylight Circus Arts have performed locally, nationally and sometimes further afield!   Our passion for Circus has taken us from The Lowry to Notting Hill Carnival.  

We create performance for:

  • Local people in our studio theatre
  • Theatres
  • Outdoor Spectacle
  • Walkabout and festivals

Here are some of our performances:.
