Cloughjordan Circus Club was founded in 2010 by Artistic Director Joanna Williams to offer an alternative social and creative outlet to children and young people aged 8 – 25 years, promoting social connections, creative expression and physical wellbeing through inclusive, participatory circus arts.
Over the past ten years the project has evolved, extending our reach well beyond Cloughjordan to engage children and young people from many surrounding Midlands towns and villages. The project provides an exciting programme of weekly circus activities, creates regular performances for parades, festivals and theatres, involves young people in trips and exchanges, and runs peer education & leadership programmes for older members.
More recently we have stepped up our outreach work offering workshops in schools and youth groups throughout the region.
Cloughjordan Circus Club is run by Joanna who is responsible for day to day operations and is lead artist on all projects. In addition we employ freelance artists to co-deliver on the core programme and to provide one-off and weekend intensive masterclasses.
