Dream way too big and forget not your purpose, but live every day like your life is a circus.
Our story began as CircusMASH in 2011 and was founded by Joseph Fearn, a travelling circus performer with a huge passion for education. Over ten years MASH has created a space in Birmingham for circus, individuality, celebration, skill, equality and magic and those spells bound in 2011 have rippled through every year since to create The House of MASH. Inside the House of MASH each room has its own mission and collectively they join together to use visual art as a tool for change.
COME ON IN…
The Dream Den:
Where we bring to life the ideas of young people and the CircusMASH community. Where we partner with local and small business to create projects that help people learn, grow and dream without limitation.
The Purpose Portal:
Where young, forward thinking, innovative minds work with brands and CEO’s to build culture, create opportunity and re-shape our future. Learn more about the projects here.
The Life Lounge:
Where our wellbeing and mental health are put before everything else. Our digital tool Space-Plans was created in 2020 to bring our mind, body and learning together. A place to keep us on track and motivated.
The Circus MASH:
Where young people and community learn skills, develop creatively and achieve their impossible.
The House of MASH creates cutting-edge performance to inspire conversation, opportunity and change; change within ourself, our communities and our world. A stage of change. We do this by connecting young artists and activists together with performers, directors and choreographers in one space. The result creates connections, partnerships and of course, jaw dropping, visceral performances created from the voice of The Collective.
CircusMASH empowers people to achieve their impossible through learning circus and adapting the tools in life. We do this by creating high quality shows with community members, delivering skill and creative classes, workshops and courses. We invest into young people because we believe that their voice is as important as everyone else’s.
Space Plans is an online space for circus teachers, performers and enthusiasts to connect with each other, their body and their mind through tools that will keep them motivated and mentally balanced. The app will offer courses and masterclasses through a ‘Learning in all directions’ approach. The tool is intended to help generate income streams for artists and introduce the power of circus to a wider world. A mind, a body, and a circus at a time!
Great work can only come from great partnerships.

Circus Mash offers a great team building opportunity, Zaq had a fantastic energy and was great with the group - everyone enjoyed it and as the organiser, I found Zaq to be very helpful and flexible. A great find!- LINDSEY PALMER, Virgin Media, Team Building
CircusMash were a pleasure to work with. Zaq was professional, organised and clear about what was required. His creative input and efforts made to provide a bespoke programme was much appreciated. Zaq’s flexibility and efforts to resolve issues as they came up throughout the process was great. The final product was outstanding – the entertainment provided was artistic and beautiful, the evening ran very smoothly and I was very impressed with the talent of the performers. Zaq and his colleagues were all friendly, professional and approachable – fantastic.- Charlotte Heap, University of Birmingham
Zaq and his colleagues were a pleasure to work with. CircusMash invested a lot of time and effort in creating a bespoke performance that fully matched the brief and exceeded our expectations. A big thank you for the table centrepieces – a lot of people commented to me on the night how wonderful they looked and how in keeping with the Winter Wonderland theme they were. I just wanted to say thanks again for contributing to a most successful and enjoyable evening – all your hard work was very much appreciated!- Joanne England, University of Birmingham
Each of the performances from CircusMASH were absolutely brilliant – our colleagues were mesmerised the entire time! The performances were perfectly suited to our event in the Big Top and really brought to life our journey and performance theme to our event. The performances were certainly memorable and I don’t think any of our colleagues will forget this conference anytime soon! The team at CircusMASH are great to work with – nothing is too much or too hard and I would definitely recommend and work with you all again in the future – thanks for making my event a true performance!- Laura Lucas (Halfords)
