We are absolutely thrilled to officially announce that Dublin Circus Project has found a new home! We will be moving to The Orchard Community Centre in Cherry Orchard, Ballyfermot at the end of this month. This new venue will enable us to move on to the next chapter of our development and growth, while enabling us to better serve our members, students and the Irish Circus community.
The Orchard Community Centre was relaunched in October 2017 and is a community hub offering many activities, classes, and resources to the local and wider community. We will have shared use of the large main hall with local community groups and will have access to studios for residencies and classes as needed. With amenities such as easy bus and rail access, parking, changing rooms and showers, heating, an onsite cafe, a permanent office, as well as wifi, we are confident that The Orchard Community Centre will be an amazing new home for our members that will support community-based and multidisciplinary practices.
We are really looking forward to getting to know, interact, and work with the local community. Our youth team is already collaborating with local groups and we hope to extend that collaboration.
While we were looking forward to celebrating our 5 years spent in Cabra and giving our second home a proper farewell, due to Covid-19 restrictions we are unfortunately unable to organise an event. However, we look forward to hosting our members and friends for a circus filled celebration as soon as we can.
The last open training in our Cabra venue will be on September 15th. If you would like to come and train at the centre one last time please see our Covid-19 training guidelines and signup here. If you have equipment or belongings that you need to collect from the centre please come during open training, or contact the team to arrange a suitable time, to ensure compliance with our Covid-19 safety procedures.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we find our feet in our new venue and we look forward to introducing you all to our new home and community. Once we have completed our move we will work out training and class timetables and plan an opening event (Covid-19 restrictions allowing) so keep an eye out for upcoming newsletters and announcements on our social media accounts.
