Sheffield’s own circus group has announced a packed calendar of activities for the summer.

Greentop, a performance arts group and one of the few full-time circus schools in the UK, has organised a series of special workshops from next week up until August.

The group, which regularly runs evening classes at their centre on Holywell Road, expects the Olympic celebrations in London to create a surge of local interest in the circus craft.

Simon Scotting, from Greentop, said: “People are realising circus training is an alternative, fun and sociable way to get a healthy lifestyle.”

The first classes start today and will be taught by Donald Grant, who has previously worked with the world famous Cirque du Soleil.

A diverse range of workshops are on offer, from juggling to high-flying trapeze and tightrope classes.
