Ever wanted to whack out a crazy trick at pre-drinks or are you just awesome? Well Circus society offers you a place to juggle, unicycle, diabolo, poi, hoop, do magic, crazy fire stuff and much more!!

The Purple Mermaid Circus society concentrates on learning and improving cool skills such as juggling, poi, staff, diablo, devil stick, stilt walking, unicycling, magic, and firespinning.

If you're interested in learning one or more of these skills, then our friendly and informal meets make it easy to learn. On the other hand if you're already have some skill, then come along, share your knowledge. We are frequently hired for events, so if you get good enough you can get paid to perform! We have plenty of good equipment so you don’t need your own.

Every Saturday 5-7pm in The Underground, below the Guild of Students.
