Welcome to the home of the Travelling Light Circus

The Travelling Light Circus co-operative is a Manchester (UK) based collective of fire performers, jugglers, hula hoopers, staff spinners, poi spinners, VJs, artists, technicians and clowns.  We put on dance based performances using UV and LED equipment with video projections, to create unique, state-of-the art entertainment. Our circus performers are regularly seen at The Big Chill festival, Beatherder, Solfest and a wide range of other events.

If you are looking for something special for your own event then we can offer you all sorts of shows with any number of performers. From solo fire displays to troupes of girls with synchronised hula hooping, we will tailor our performances to suit your event and budget.

We also make big outdoor sculptures that create beautiful walk-through environments and shelter from sun or rain. They are serene by day and come alive at night with swirling projections and inner lighting. They are fantastic artwork in their own right and are the perfect backdrop for our illuminated performances and circus shows.

We meet weekly in Manchester for skills-sharing, practice and rehearsals.

This site has photos, videos and reviews of our work, along with details of our meetings and information about workshops, so have a look through the site and get in touch if you want to know more.
