Circus Charity to Perform at Brighton DomeBudding young circus performers are preparing to take to the stage at Brighton Dome this December, with help from professional artists from Circolombia.
Students from three local youth circus schools, The Circus Project, Teardrop Circus and Hightop Circus, will perform a ‘curtain raiser’ that will open Circolombia’s uplifting circus-concert Acelere during the venue’s Christmas programme.
In a series of workshops run by Brighton & Hove charity The Circus Project, members of Circolombia worked with groups of children and young people, aged between 10 and 18 years old, to create two short routines. Learning new skills such as acrobatics, dance and choreography to complement the aerial techniques that the schools teach, the students will showcase what they have learnt to a live audience each night.

POSTPONED: Worthing Christmas MarketNEW DATE: Saturday 11 December 2021
Worthing's annual Christmas Market has been postponed from this Saturday (27 November) until Saturday 11 December, from 12pm until 6pm.
James Bacharew, Head of Fundraising and Marketing at Care for Veterans, said: "Sadly, we have had to postpone the Worthing Christmas Market from this Saturday (27 November) until Saturday 11 December. This is due to suspected cases of a non-Covid related winter bug at our facility. Although the Christmas Market is held outside, this is a precautionary measure as the safety of our resident veterans is our main priority.
"We really hope that anyone hoping to attend this weekend can come along and see us on 11 December. We apologise for any inconvenience to those who were planning to attend. In a difficult year, with so many cancellations, we really appreciate the ongoing support from our local community."
Rescheduled for Saturday 11 December, the Worthing Christmas Market will be outside the Care for Veterans' facility on Boundary Road, in Worthing's West End, from 12pm until 6pm. Over 25 independent traders will be selling gifts, decorations, festive treats, and real Christmas trees, along with Santa's grotto, mulled wine and beer, and many opportunities to win prizes in games, raffles and tombolas. There will be live entertainment throughout the afternoon.
All money raised will help towards the over £1.5 million needed each year for the charity to maintain its nursing and rehabilitation services for ex-Service personnel and their families.
Current residents in Care for Veterans' 60-bed facility are aged between 35 and 98 years old. The majority have Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or a degenerative neurological condition, such as multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Parkinson's. As an independent provider, the charity can fill the gaps often found between healthcare and social services.
