A one day circus and outdoor arts festival on 6th May '24 in Lawn Woods, Swindon!

SCOAP brings you the first edition of the Swindon Circus Festival.  A day of hanging out in a beautiful park with amazing shows, exciting workshops, and all round good vibes!  Acrobatics, aerial, comedy, walkabout entertainment …  What’s not to love?!  Bring a picnic or grab a bite from Stickerbox Streetfood - pack for the day and make sure you stay because you won’t want to miss a thing!


How much?

This is a pay-as-you-feel event. 


We know that ticket prices can create a barrier to a good time so we invite you to pay what you like.  No pre-booking, no fences or turnstyles, and nobody will be turned away.  Everyone is welcome!


Suggestions of what to pay:

£0 - £15 per person


We will be accepting cash and card payments on the day in obvious places around the site.


We want to trial this system to recognise that everyone is in different financial situations, but should all be able to have a good time!


What's there?

Fail Fail Fail Fail Win

A family comic theatre circus show. For humans. Featuring such fails and possibly wins in diabolo, juggling, hulahoop, and an attempt to spin 8 real VERDAGEN ikea plates, retail value £2. Total economic jeopardy = £16. Plus shipping.


Family friendly, dance theatre by Kitsch & Sync Collective

Taking inspiration from Vintage postcards and summer seaside pastimes, Kitsch & Sync dancers bring a splash of nostalgia and nautical naughtiness to the festival!
