What better way to kick off your topic than with an inspirational live circus show in your assembly!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“So glad I booked Lucas for our Arts Week! You’ve been great to coordinate plans with and extremely accommodating with everything I’ve asked! Your workshops were perfect for the ages of the children and you and Johnny were an absolute delight in your show finale!

 

Not sure where you find your energy from! The time and patience you have with every child is heartwarming! The children adored your visit and the added extras of performing when the children walked into school in the morning will have made long lasting happy memories. Thank you Lucas and Johnny! You made our Arts Week extra special and just perfect!.”

What happens in a Lucas Jet School Day?

Arrival

I always arrive at 8am in order to have time to set everything up and have time to warm up. I carry quite a lot of equipment so if you can get my car as close as possible to the hall that's always appreciated.

Straight after morning register is usually when we do a whole school assembly show. This is a great scene setter for the day. After they see the show, the pupils will be completely inspired and super focussed for the rest of the day.

Workshops

From here, the timetable is quite flexible. I tend to advise 45 minute long workshop sessions with each year group, the ideal group sizes to work with is no more than 35 pupils. Though if I know in advance and you have the space I can work with 2 classes at once if necessary.

Workshop content

Again this is flexible depending on how many sessions we are trying to fit in. In general my circus skills sessions include; peacock feather balancing, plate spinning, flower sticks, diabolo, juggling. 

Workshops are adapted for the different year groups.

ABOUT
Me

I'm 4 x British Unicycle Champion and present live skills that a lot of children just won't have seen in real life. It's powerful stuff. 

Leon&The
Place Between

A fantastic book that I am often asked to bring to life through my magical circus performance. Let's give the pupils something to write about.

Engage
all

Every school has the pupils that struggle to engage with learning or mainstream sport. Circus workshops can often be a breakthrough for many pupils as it uses a different part of the brain.

Lucas & Jony

A circus show & full day of school circus workshops

For slightly larger schools or an extra special treat you might want to put on a mega show. Some of the showstopping stunts that I can do with Jony just aren't possible solo. It also means we can run two sessions simultaneously.

2 days of Lucas

Same as others but for 2 days. 

I'm often booked to stay for multiple days, this might be because you only have one hall and not all pupils can watch the show at once. Therefore 2 days is useful to give everyone adequate time to enjoy the sessions.

I also wrote a blog post detailing the amazing levels that the school went to so you can check that out as inspiration for your next world book day.
