Children rolled up to try their hand at tightrope walking, unicycle riding and trapeze tricks for summer circus week at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead.
The five-day workshop run by Albert & Friends Instant Circus is one of the centre's most popular holiday activities, with more than 60 youngsters attending each day.
A week of tough training under guidance from the professionals culminates in a grand performance on the Friday in front of family and friends.
The workshop has been running since Norden Farm opened 13 years ago.
"It was a really, really good week," said the art centre's education officer Oliver Laurenson-Gore.
"There’s not many opportunities for children to do circus skills. Every year we get some of the same children coming back, giving them a chance to improve.
"The highlight was the trapeze. We got three children on it together and it’s one of the hardest things to do.
"They were fearless."
