Looping The Loop free circus themed fun for half term

Circus skills with Looping The Loop

If you’re looking for lively, creative things to do over the October half-term holiday, check out Looping the Loop’s free workshops, all on the theme of circus and the seaside tradition of entertainment.

Try Circus Screamers – a session of singing using new and existing song, with Edward Greenhalgh, or Circus Skills with This Bean Spins (hoops, juggling, mini-stilts!). Then Circus Animals with puppeteer James Frost gets you to make and operate large and small animal puppets.

The workshops are for all ages – the experienced professional artists running the sessions will tailor them to suit a variety of abilities, and you don’t have to have any experience at all, just come and enjoy yourself.

The workshops are free thanks to support from Ramsgate Town Council and Arts Council England. And you will be helping Looping the Loop with its research into the world of ‘Lord’ George Sanger, who bought the Hall By The Sea and created what became Dreamland. He also built a beautiful 2000-seat Royal Palace Theatre in Ramsgate High Street. Looping the Loop is working on a plan for a community play in 2025 to mark the bicentenary of Sanger’s birth, which will involve lots of Thanet residents, artists and entertainers.

Workshops are on Monday 23rd (Circus Screamers 10.30-12.30pm), Wednesday 25th (Circus Animals 10am – 2pm) and Thursday 26th (Circus Skills 10.30am – 12.30pm), all at Radford House, the old fire station in Ramsgate’s Effingham Street, which is being turned into a community hub by Ramsgate Town Council. Book in advance to secure a place, it’s all free!
