Main Banana Stuff

Based on the South Coast, UK, Top Banana Circus run regular classes, one off workshops, Circus days and drop-ins, as well as appearing at events.


Activities can be tailored to your particular needs.


Our friendly team of Workshop Leaders and Assistants will ensure everyone receives plenty of individual coaching and achieves something they can be proud of.


We charge fees for our activities, and we use any surplus we generate to offer subsidised or free activities to disadvantaged groups and individuals, and training for young people, particularly those experiencing barriers to mainstream provision.


Circus skills are fun, physical & creative.
Whether it’s juggling, walking the tightwire or performing an amazing trick, you’ll learn something new, & have a great time doing it!
We believe that circus offers something for every-one.
