Projects and Partnerships
As a small charity, Skylight Circus is reliant on project funding. We recognise that our work can be life changing and we want to make a difference!
“At Skylight’s Circus School, pupils could experience tightwire, aerial swings and harness. This equipment is extremely popular, the children experience exhilaration, excitement and different sensations from freedom of movement. One child was very nervous about the swing and found it challenging to even lift his feet off the ground. Week by week he built up his confidence until he swung through the air”
Martine Bradford Creative Director
