LATEST FOOLHARDY NEWS
So, we have been working hard over the past year and creating new content and we are happy to announce we have new comedic circus routines ready for booking. Including an hilarious club passing routine with Cosmo & Lucas, a 16 high crystal-tumbler stacking and balancing act, a new mysterious magic act (disembodiment!) and of course some very topical new walkabout characters.
The circus industry has been working very hard to create and implement circus Covid protocols ready for the new season. The Foolhardies are fully compliant with these and we are happy to send you a copy of the paperwork for your peace of mind.
Rest assured our unique blend of humour and slapstick is still as anarchic and chaotic as ever ;-) so don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements either for a show or anything else we offer.
Foolhardies Online Streaming Service
The Foolhardies are proud to begin development of our new streaming service.
We have been fortunate to receive financial support via a grant as well as business help and advice.
The grant was secured through “The New Anglia Visitor / Wider Economy Grant Scheme, funded by the European Regional Development Fund
Our new streaming service will offer schools, organisations and individuals access to online circus skills workshops and Foolhardy performances.
The workshops will include juggling from beginner to advanced, diabolo, poi poi, clowning and circus based fitness ideas and much more, They will be tailored for all age groups and abilities and so are very inclusive for all.
The content will be both instructive, informative, practical and fun. This is a project we are very enthusiastic and excited about and we look forward to opening for bookings very soon.
Over the next few weeks we will be creating a dedicated web page where we will be uploading workshops and providing access and further information about signing up. In the meantime if you require further information please don't hesitate to get in touch.

We are writing with sad tidings... unfortunately we won’t be running a circus camp this year. This is due to many reasons, all of which are beyond our control and not of our doing.
We are sad and frustrated, however we are continuing to move forwards positively and to get a foothold back in the land of circus after having no circus work over the past year. Things are slowly beginning to open up again, so it may be that we will see you at an event or two this summer with our circus workshops and clown shows. Be sure to come and say hello, we would love that!
Lucas and Cos are still planning to start some weekly home Ed circus skills sessions, and we have your names on our list if you have already expressed an interest. If not please reply to this email and we will add your children’s names. We anticipate mid to late May, so keep an eye out for the info in your inbox. We will also post the info on our website ASAP.
Rest assured we will keep you all posted with regards bouncing back with a spring in our steps for an overwhelmingly long overdue Circus Camp 2022.
