Daredevil youngsters took to the trapeze and stepped up on stilts at a circus skills week at Norden Farm Centre for the Arts.

A group of 62 children, aged between seven and 13 years old, took part in the week-long event which ended with a show for family and friends.

Run by Albert & Friends Instant Circus, workshops took over the whole of the Altwood Road venue.

"It is something Norden Farm staff always love going to see," said marketing manager Sally Worman.

"They are so brave, they just try things adults never would."

 

In the final performance on August 1, there were 13 children up on stilts as high as 5-6ft.

Youngsters also got to try juggling, riding unicycles and balancing on balls.

Circus week ran from July 28-August 1.
