Silver Circus 65+

Silver Circus is funded by Our Rochdale Connecting You Fund.  Join us for fun, sessions to promote well-being, coordination, flexibility, balance and confidence. Learning new skills can help slow down the onset of dementia.

Silver Circus is a great way to make new friends and learn new skills at the same time.  Our sessions are designed for  you to try everything from juggling to trapeze!  We have secured funding to offer free sessions to over 65’s who live in the Borough.  We even have an indoor picnic afterwards, so bring along some sandwiches!

 

Join Us

Monday 11 – 12:30 Free to Heywood, Middleton & Rochdale residents!

“I love coming to Silver Circus.  I look forward to our Monday sessions and seeing my new circus friends!”
