Lost Horizons and the CircusWorks Team are working in partnership to produce Circus Rising, a fully hybrid event in Bristol and online in February 2021. We will be looking at the ground breaking technology which has come into play during the pandemic and exploring how we can use this going forward. If you want to know how VR, holograms and innovative digital platforms can be used to connect people, this one is for you.

Sexual Health Education + Circus...it works! But why?!

Learn where circus and sexual health education can overlap and how! A chance to reflect on what your sex education was like at school and how the experience of the Sexual Health Circus can positively affect young people who have access to it. You will have a rare opportunity to watch some of the new educational video and look at a Sexual Health Circus Relationship & Sex Education lesson plan.

Can you help us to break down the barriers that we come across when working within the school systems or support us to disseminate our new live show and video? We would love your support!
