Kings Heath circus group launches appeal to take to the skies

more Kings Heath local news

A circus group has launched an ambitious appeal to rig out its new 'big top' in Kings Heath.

CircusMASH took over the former All Saints Church Hall last year and has already converted the venue into a spectacular training facility. It runs regular classes for anyone in the community interested in circus arts.

The initial restoration and fitting out cost £8,000 and was completed with the support of lots of volunteers. Now the group has launched a crowd-funding appeal to install a complete aerial rig.

The equipment will provide a safe and secure rigging system that will enable CircusMASH to support people learning and developing in the air.

“We will be teaching young and old, bendy and flexibility impaired, bold and timid alike to achieve the impossible and soar through the air,” says founder Joe Fearn.

“Achieving this requires unlimited patience, a love of circus and teaching, and a top class aerial rigging system. CircusMASH has the first two in spades, but needs your help to raise the £15,000 needed for the kit.”

Joe had been touring internationally teaching and performing circus since 2004. While in the USA he met up with Zac Alden, the assistant director of a youth training programme called Circus of the Kids. Zac has now moved to Kings Heath to help set up CircusMASH.

The group offers a range of activities from juggling, through handstand lessons to high wire skills. People making donations to the appeal can choose from a range of classes and activities in return for their cash.
