Help us to continue to nurture classical guitar education


Everything Classical Guitar

Guitar Circus is first and foremost a charity that is dedicated to delivering opportunities that develop and nurture classical guitar education and performance across the UK. We offer ensemble training for talented students  wishing to perform at the highest level and  learn from world-class tutors through the National Youth Guitar Ensemble (NYGE).

Every other year we present the World Youth Guitar Festival (WYGF) attracting students and whole ensembles of any ability from all over the world. Our festival features guitar workshops, concerts and other music activities including creating a giant classical guitar orchestra.

Guitar Circus is also developing an educational programme to support UK guitar teachers, giving access to vital resources and support from top professionals.
