Watch it, Learn it, Do it – Great Workshop Ideas

July 14, 2015


We understand. We do. Sometimes you seen an entertainment that is just so good, just so awesome that you have to get involved yourself. You’ve wanted to try juggling for years and it makes sense to get up on stage and give it your best shot. Rather than ruining a juggler’s performance however, you can actually set up a workshop for your event as well, where everyone can get involved and give this skill a good go. Who knows, we may end up booking you for an event in the future!

Circus Skills

 Perhaps the first thing that springs to mind when you want to spend a couple of hours learning a new skill is something you’ve always wanted to do but never quite got round to. A circus skills workshop can encompass a broad range of activities that perfectly fits the bill for anyone who isn’t quite sure if they should learn juggling, diabolo or plate spinning (to name but three). If you’ve ever wanted to clown around, then this is your chance!

Ukulele

 You know how you always wanted to learn a musical instrument but didn’t want to spend hundreds of pounds on a good quality bassoon and have never quite had the room for a piano? You’re now in luck because a ukulele is cheap as chips and you can begin practicing almost immediately with a number of top quality online videos. If you want someone to give you a helping hand early on however, then this is a delightful way to spend a few hours.

Percussion/Drums

 Had a stressful day at work? Struggled to find a parking space? Take out your anger and vent your frustration in a constructive way by bashing some drums for an hour! There is slightly more to it than that of course but with our trained professionals, you’ll be whacking out a tune in no time. Percussions isn’t just drums – hell, you can make music from any kind of junk – so why not learn some gamelan or xylophone?

Pop Video

 Not a workshop per se but it’s too fun not to include and is sure to get the children excited. Or perhaps you’re a grown up who’s never quite embodied those two words and never topped the charts as you previously imagined? A pop video experience puts you front and centre with your friend as you sing and dance your way through your very own three minute masterpiece. Lights, camera, action!
