About the artists


Upswing brings circus flavours to Happy Streets Festival – a live circus showcase alongside the opportunity for the audience to ‘have a go’!*

The performances showcase the breadth of talent from Upswing’s diverse, energetic and highly skilled Associate Artists.

Each performance is followed by an open circus skills workshop led by the artists where you get the chance to  learn something new. For anyone who’s dreamt of joining the circus!

Upswing is an award-winning contemporary circus company that uses circus to tell new stories in extraordinary ways, amplifying and celebrating the skills, creative talents and stories of diverse artists and communities. Their work weaves aerial, theatre, dance, text, and multimedia to create fresh experiences with narrative punch .

*Workshops are adapted to meet all government guidance for distancing and sanitization

Griffin Primary Forest School

Situated in Griffin Primary’s own Forest in the City space, children will be encouraged to explore a text through a range of creative outdoor art and play activities. Suitable for children under 7 years old.

Focusing on the process as much as the product, children will be supported to engage with the natural surroundings and explore the forest space. Expect children to make memories and create treasures to take home with them!
