Westside Circus | Monday 30 May  2016

Westside Circus has a new home. It’s in Preston – and it’s huge.

Westside are calling for Expressions of Interest from circus and physical theatre artists and companies wanting to develop a new skill, act or show to help us to keep our new circus studio warm and active.

Westside Circus

If you have a development period planned and need some assistance, contact Westside Circus or write a 1‐2 page summary of your idea, outlining:

  • how it will develop your art or the industry
  • what support, skills and experience you have already secured
  • what you need to realise your vision
  • what you can offer to Westside in return


If your proposal is accepted, Westside Circus will support you with access to:

  • space (up to 600 m2 available)
  • a hot desk and company infrastructure
  • administration support (within our capacity), including auspicing grants
  • a team of highly experienced artists and managers to offer advice (if you require it)

At the end of each month, our Artistic Directorate will convene a panel to assess EOI’s received. Those selected will be contacted within 10 days to negotiate the details of their residency. Preference will be given to individuals and organisations:

  • working with or for young people or people with a disability
  • that share our values
  • with requests that can be accommodated
  • offering relationships of mutual benefit
