Homemade Circus

Below you’ll find resources, both from Upswing and from our friends, that use Circus skills as a basis to help you to keep active during this time. These resources range from solo circus for older people who are self-isolating, to activities for kids and the whole family. 

From Upswing: Circus at Home Guide for Older People

This guide is an adaptation from Story Box Circus – a project we delivered in care homes in Hull as part of Hull City of Culture in 2017. It includes simple circus skills that can be done solo at home and with minimal equipment. The activities in this handbook can be a great way to stay mobile and mentally active. They can be done seated, and as your confidence and skills improve – and if you feel like it – you can develop your skills standing up.
