Ever dreamt of running off to the circus?
Well now is your chance because a circus performance like no other is set to entertain families in Crewe — 

Known as The Lost Carnival, audiences will be immersed in a large-scale outdoor theatre experience said to be unique in the world of the performing arts and based on the grand circuses and carnivals from the turn of the 20th century.

Organisers are now recruiting people of all ages who want to be part of the fun and become involved in a serious volunteering experience.

A dedicated volunteer scheme is offering local people the chance to develop lasting skills and contribute to the creation of an extraordinary event. The first workshop takes place in Crewe on March 9 at the MMU Crewe Campus.

The Lost Carnival Strongmanhe award-winning production company Wild Rumpus, in association with the arts organisations Bury Met and Ramsbottom Festival, will stage the event over three days at Crewe’s Queens Park during the Spring Bank Holiday (May 28 to 30).

Sarah Bird, director of Wild Rumpus, said: 

“Our volunteering scheme supports emerging talent and new skills in a variety of areas, including the creative industries, logistics, production and catering.”

“Volunteering will offer the opportunity to develop skills, team working experience, confidence in an exciting and challenging role and the chance to be a part of a landmark event in the town.”

Wild Rumpus works in partnership with local residents, artists, suppliers, partners and key Council teams to create a legacy of strengthened engagement in arts and culture.
The company seeks support and involvement from volunteers, schools and colleges, libraries, museums and other organisations. Local arts groups are especially encouraged to take part.
Workshops will take place in advance of the event at which volunteers can contribute creative art, story lines and any other ideas of a material or digital nature that will feature in the final production
