Cloughjordan Circus Club are delighted to be the instigator and host of the now annual Irish Youth Circus Gathering. The event brings together young people with a shared interest in circus from Youth Circus Organisations from all over the island of Ireland.
Young people take part from Derry, Galway, Dublin, Belfast, Lisburn and of course Tipperary in a shared weekend full of circus workshops, learning and fun.
The whole community of Cloughjordan welcomes our guests who stay in Djangos Hostel. As well as a packed circus workshop programme, social events include a celebration meal in our Community Cafe, Saturday night cabaret performance in St Kierans Hall and a camp fire on the Community Farm.
The event is made possible with workshops and facilitators from all participating groups including Lisburn Community Circus, Dublin Circus Project, Belfast Community Circus School, Galway Community Circus and In Your Space Circus as well as Cloughjordan Circus Club
In 2020 the Irish Youth Circus Gathering went ONLINE! We had a great evening with workshops, quiz’s and the launch of our “10 second trick” video.
If you are a Youth Circus Organisation in Ireland and would like to take part in future gatherings please get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
