We also run highly regarded workshops, away days and team building events for the corporate community.
The Circus Space is now looking for committed students or recent graduates with an interest in the performing arts.
These are exciting opportunities to get involved in The Circus Space's work and learn more about what goes on behind the scenes in a busy central London arts organisation.
