Rushden's Circus Skills Round Up

Rushden's Circus Skills Round Up

Rushden Town Council greeted nearly 200 local children to a series of circus skills sessions held in the Walled Garden, Rushden Hall.

The day began with a demonstration led by Albie, a professional circus skills facilitator and the children were taught various circus skills, including juggling, hula hooping, stilt walking, plate spinning, diablo and flower stick handling. Each skill was broken down into easy-to-follow steps, making it accessible for children of all ages and abilities.

Albie had a natural way of connecting with the children, creating a safe and supportive environment. The children were encouraged to challenge themselves and try new things, boosting their self-confidence and sense of achievement. Laughter and cheers filled the air as the children amazed themselves and their friends with their newfound skills. Parents also had a fantastic time as they enthusiastically joined in the fun too!

The sun added an extra sparkle to the day, making the colourful props shine even brighter. The Walled Garden at Rushden Hall provided the perfect setting for the sessions, with its lush green grass and enchanting surroundings.

The event was a huge success and will, hopefully leave a lasting impression on the children and their families. Rushden Town Council's professionally arranged circus skill sessions provided not only a day of fun but also valuable life lessons in perseverance, creativity, and teamwork.

Certificates were presented to recognize the achievements and efforts of the children involved and wildflower seeds packets were distributed to be grown at home and children were asked to send in pictures of their flowering blooms to be included on the Council's website.

Overall, the circus skills workshop was a resounding success and the event provided a day of enjoyment and learning for the children.

Rushden Town Council is committed to providing these opportunities to enhance the well-being, growth, and sense of community in the local area.
