Sexual Health Circus

Improving young people's sexual health and wellbeing through the engaging and interactive medium of circus

The Sexual Health Circus, a new ‘circus in education’ show. Working with a team of talented circus performers and two circus directors, we have explored combining circus and theatre to develop an informative show engaging young people with Relationship and Sex Education. Post-show Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) lesson plans have been devised for teachers to further unpick the sexual health topics from the show.

The show is aimed at secondary school young people, many of who would not engage with arts and culture - especially circus - introducing them to the art form as well.
