Thames Tunnel Circus School workshops

Stay at home and join the circus: Brunel Museum to host online circus skills workshops for families

This Easter, The Brunel Museum is offering a series of free online workshops for families to learn circus skills at home. Learn to juggle, walk a tightrope or build a human pyramid!

Join ‘The Thames Tunnel Circus School’ from the 8th Wonder of the World! 

The Thames Tunnel was considered to be the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ when it opened in 1843. This Easter, the Brunel Museum joined forces with the AndCircus to create five online circus skills workshops for families to do at home. 

These workshops will reflect Victorian times when magicians, sword swallowers, tightrope walkers, and fire eaters were entertaining people in the Thames Tunnel.  

We hope you enjoy learning a new skill and have some fun juggling, walking a tightrope or building your human pyramid!
