Come to Crawley Circus Festival!
Festival Dates for 2016
Fri 19th - Sun 21st August
What's it all about?
A weekend of fun, great shows, circus skills workshops, camping, games and a great atmosphere!
A great weekend of workshops, shows and games for circus enthusiasts and absolute beginners. This year’s theme is 'Post Apocalyptic' so feel free to dress up. You can come for the day, but the best value by far, is the fully inclusive weekend ticket which includes: camping, all workshops and shows (including Kettle of Fish professional cabaret) and children under 6, accompanying weekend ticket holders, come for free. (Please request Under 6 tickets at time of booking). We’ve also extended our offer for families this year with Play Mosaic on site.
Who is it for?
The festival is designed for everyone, those who just want to see what is going on right through to professional circus acts joining in with the show. It is a relaxed environment and has become known as the 'Friendly Festival'.
Where is it?
The festival takes place within the Hawth Theatre and it's grounds. The Hawth is in Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 6YZ, UK and is easliy accessible by car, train, bus, unicycle & plane. There is lots of accommodation available nearby and also limited camping facilities on-site.

Securing the Festival's Future
To secure its future, the festival is now run by a volunteer committee who are committed to providing an entertaining, family friendly event for the next three years and beyond.
Food & Drink
We will arrange an outside caterer for the weekend so there will be something available in addition to the Hawth's restaurant.
