We are a small charity with a big heart, and even bigger ideas!

We believe in delivering quality projects that really make a difference to the people involved.

We try and target the majority of our projects at very disadvantaged or isolated children, adults, and young people, but all who know they’ll get something positive out of getting involved, are welcome, as well as all those that don’t know…yet!

We are delighted to announce that our ‘Circus & Rainbows’ Home Ed Day School project is now up and running.  Without the help and support of West Coast Academy in Redruth, and Head Coach and Director Rhea Upsher, this wouldn’t have been possible, so a big thanks to them.  Contact us for further information as the school can take up to 18 children, between 7-15 and we currently have 16 pupils.

Cirque Du Ciel is  also currently providing ‘Everyone Welcome, Circus Skills Workshops’, at The Circus Academy 2 Crowlas.   With similar sessions starting 5 November at The Acorn Theatre Penzance, why not get in touch now for details?  Places are limited, so hurry if you want to get involved!

Cirque Du Ciel with your help and involvement would like at the earliest opportunity, to re-instate, and regenerate, the 2 long term projects it holds dearest to it’s heart. It’s work at the Trelander Centre Truro, and with the local support services, for women and children, dealing with living in difficult circumstances. Please help us to do this by supporting the work of our projects and events.
