guidelines circus corona

Here you can read which impact the Corona guidelines have on our activities. We keep this page up to date whenever the guidelines should change, as soon – but more importantly – as correct as possible.

COVID UPDATE 30/10/’20

Contrary to the information provided by the Flemish government last Tuesday, our activities for children under the age of 12 are no longer allowed. This means that ALL activities planned this week, can no longer continue.

During the autumn holidays, we will take the time to see what impact the measures have on our activities and what we can and cannot organise. Those who have registered for activities will be informed by e-mail shortly.

We hope to see you again soon!

We follow the guidelines of Sport Vlaanderen and the GymFed because they match our work environment. These guidelines were developed with the fellow circus studios in Flanders and the Circuscentrum, tailored to our sector.
