Who We Are

Formerly 'Cirque du Ciel', 'Cirk Hes' has been a registered charity serving the Cornish community since 2003. The last five years saw the charity lease and create a very unique space, the 'Circus Works Devoran'. The same fantastic team now bring you the Cirk Hes Circus Space in Helston, Cornwall, UK.  'Cirk Hes' means 'Shoal Circus' in Cornish.

Now with brand new, industry standard facilities 'Cirk Hes' will continue to grow the charity's activities, which focus on facilitating the teaching, the training and the performing of the Circus Arts and  Physical Theatre.

Our Mission

To bring the physical, mental and social benefits of the Circus Arts and Physical Theatre to those who need such access the most.  Also to support and nurture grassroots creative and community projects, to support emerging artists to greater professional development, and to support the wider circus industry.

Our time tables from 8 July - September 2024

Sessions as per this time table go live to book on this website the evening by Sunday  7 July 2024.
