Circomedia is a world renowned centre for contemporary circus and physical theatre training in the UK and is based in Bristol. The school offers a variety of training courses and workshops that teach circus skills in the context of physical theatre, performance and creativity.
It was founded in 1993 by Bim Mason and Helen Crocker, following the closure of Fooltime, Britain’s first circus school. It is financially supported by Arts Council South West and a range of other funding.
Since 2004, Circomedia has been based in St. Paul’s Church at Portland Square, Bristol and a site in Kingswood, Bristol which is home to the degree programme and the main office.
