An ending…

After 35 years of teaching circus and creating work in London, we regret to inform you that Albert & Friends Instant Circus will cease to operate on 14th September 2018. We would like to take this opportunity to say to a huge thanks to everyone – AFIC founders Ian & Trea, the young people, families, staff, teachers, volunteers, schools, voluntary organisations, funders – who have been involved with Albert & Friends Instant Circus over the years!

A beginning…

Albert & Friends Instant Circus will live on in the work of former participants, many of whom are involved in the arts and education sectors, and through practitioners who will continue to inspire young people through their amazing teaching skills and creativity.

Our dear colleague Alex (Tiggy) Braith, who has more than 20 years of experience teaching circus at Albert & Friends, will be starting his own programme of circus courses! He will begin these in time for the October 2018 half term.

For data protection reasons this will be our final newsletter from this account so if you want to be contacted by Tiggy with further information about his new courses please email or call him at the details below to opt-in for his information email.

Also AFIC tutor Ella Golt will continue to run her Ella The Great Mini Circus programme. You can contact her through her Facebook page.

We wish staff, practitioners and participants every success in the future and thank you all for playing a part in our journey.
