Get ready Bury! Factory International’s Welcome Roadshow is coming to The Met on October 21, bringing the magic of dance, circus skills and craft workshops.

Ever pictured yourself in a circus? Learning to dance like the professionals? Or getting creative with household waste? Now’s your chance!

It’s not just about honing your dance, circus and craft skills; it’s about connecting with your community and finding out more about The Welcome, a nine-day extravaganza coming to Aviva Studios this autumn.

Dive into the world of dance, circus and craft with our talented facilitators. Let loose, try something new and experience the magic of dance, circus and craft.


10.30am – 12.00pm Take part in a Free Flow workshop and join Company Chameleon to explore the elements of qi gong – fire, water, earth, metal and wood – through creative dance and movement.

1.00pm – 2.30pm Get involved in the Join the Circus workshop, where you can learn how to perform skills in a non-competitive, inclusive environment, led by Skylight Circus Arts and Circus Sensible.
