Greenwich Circus festival is split in to two sessions; 'day' and 'evening':
Doors open 13.00
Marvel as London's leading Circus Artists test the limits of the human body with death-defying acts on nearly every piece of circus equipment you could imagine! Meet wandering characters from far-away lands sure to astound you with their super-human skills. In the afternoon we have performances from the cream of our AirCraft Youth Circus (you won't believe what these kids can do) and our adult Act Creation artists directed by Alex Frith. Plus there's hidden surprises, sideshow attractions, food and drink.
Ever dreamt of running away with the circus? Well it's not too late! We love it when people get involved. See if you fall off the roller-boller, help someone across the tightwire or try plate spinning, balancing on a ball, hula hoop, trampet and much more.
We have games, we have laughter, we have a GIANT INFLATABLE BOUNCY SLIDE! And thats not even half of it, we've got more circus-related antics than we know what to do with.

Doors open 18.30
Sit back as our very own full-time students show you what the AirCraft Circus school is made of with our spectacular Foundation Course Student Cabaret 2013 (this, ladies and gentlemen, is the product of 15-weeks hard graft at the hands of the AirCraft Circus trainers, expect top quality stuff).
Then to round everything off we have AirCraft Circus' pièce de résistance Damaged Goods...
Nothing is perfect; imperfections are in all of us. Damaged Goods is a rich blend of high technical circus and visual story telling exploring the parts of our nature that are masked from society. How we have been shaped, the wounds that drive us and stop us, and when our damage becomes an obsession.
Our Damaged Goods artists have been through a grueling process to winkle out stories that resonate with them which directors Alex Frith and Lucy Francis are subverting and developing into larger than life characters to entertain and surprise. Exploring new equipment and circus acts that push the the artists' technical abilities to the limit. The show is supported by a soundscape of percussion and an expertly remixed collection of tracks, orchestrated live by David Kemp from a fortress of technology.
