Tired of classes? .. Come join the circus for some fun!! 

RUCAS is a dedicated society that involves a whole spectrum of circus orientated activities including (not limited to) juggling, poi, staff, diabolo, hooping, contact manipulation, uni cycling, rope dart, acroyoga etc. 

We welcome all interested members, with any skill level, and we have the equipment and expertise to cater for absolute beginners, up to advanced level. The society prides itself on developing talent and confidence through performing and support. 

RUCAS is a very social group and we also regularly host events with other societies, take part in performances and run trips to circus conventions. We also sometimes attend conventions and watch other circus performances.

Winner of the Inclusion and Diversity Award 2019!!


When? Where? 

The society holds at the moment 2 weekly sessions where we get together to practice, play, teach and generally have a laugh. 

Tuesdays 8pm-10pm - Workshops

Saturdays 5pm-7pm - Jam sessions 

All run in 3Sixty (RUSU), unless stated otherwise on the plannings or Facebook page. 

> We also organise social nights (board games, quizz and karaoke ..) to have an excuse to meet together again.

Come learn with us the skills, and then go play with fire equipement on Fire Nights, held in Reading or Egham.

Still hesitating?...  

2017; The year that P.T. Barnum and his sparkly ensemble danced across our screens, gripping the global box office in ‘The Greatest Showman’.. 

2018; This production is still making waves and infecting people with circus fever, just in time for a year of ‘Circus 250’ national celebrations, marking 250 years since the birth of modern circus.. 

2019; The year that YOU fell in love with circus after becoming a member of Reading University Circus Society (RUCAS)! 

It’s not hard for the members of RUCAS to understand this circus storm in our modern culture, and we’d love nothing more than to share our passion with anybody and everybody.
