It's almost Easter, so it must be time for the annual circus bandwagon to roll into town and pitch its tent for the duration. The good news is that with the advent of BritCirc, a lot of the best young talent is homegrown. The first ever Circus Space Festival kicks off today at the home of this new phenomenon, in Hoxton, with a dizzy array of performances, workshops, circus footage and even a Circusiana Fair selling a range of memorabilia and equipment. So juggle your schedules and head for the smell of the sawdust.

The Circus Space, Coronet St, London N1 (0171-613 4141) today to 19 Apr
