About The Circus

Ringleader WavingLADLES AND JELLYSPOONS! GENTLE FOLK AND MISCHIEF MAKERS! WELCOME TO THE GOBLIN CIRCUS!!!

We are faeries, goblins, humans, elves and shapeshifters, misfits and trouble makers, darling and daring, and just a little bit weird. We are monsters and dreamers and we’ve made a home in this circus that aims to always inspire and entertain!

What is a Goblin Circus, you ask? I have rambled about that here and there, but here is a definition for your perusal:

Goblin Circus ( GOB-lin SUR-kuh s)

Noun

  1.  A tribe of performing goblins and their fantastical friends
  2. A series of theatrical storytelling shows by the changeling Halo Quin
  3. A walkabout performance by the ‘Goblin Circus’ crew
  4. A multimedia, multiplatform world-building artwork with stories, illustrations, performances, workshops and more, online, offline and colouring over the line…

Expect the Unexpected – Practicalities

Telling Tales!

If we turn up at an event we can put on a storytelling show (with the Ringleader Halo transporting the audience to the circus through voice alone) or Halo can run amok through the event, interacting with anyone who wants to play. Or we can do both. Let us know what you’d like.

For more grown-up, indoor events Maurice the Gryphon likes to supervise, for outdoor events and younger crowds, Penn the Dragon insists on coming out to play.

If you visit us online (here!) you’ll find art and stories set in the Goblin Circus and about its denizens… and you are invited to comment and tell your own stories about the Goblin Circus too. (On the understanding that anything you share here may be developed further by the Goblins and shared elsewhere, so leave a good contact email if you want to be kept in the loop, we like to give credit!)

Word to the Wise: Halo is very happy to discuss requirements with you if you’d like to book the Goblin Circus for your event! Drop her a line with any enquiries on haloquin @ gmail.com

Meet The Ringleader:

This is me. AKA Haloquin AKA Halo. AKA The Ringleader. AKA the goblin-fae circus tribe’s ghost writer. They tend to call me “Hey Ooooh!” Because of the noise I make when distracted by shiny things.

My tale? The short version? I  went looking for faeries every day as a child… in the end they sent me to their favourite circus and the Goblin Tribe took me in. They were quite insistent that I be their emissary to the land above the hills (that’s our world) which means they’ve set me to telling tales, painting posters and comics telling of their adventures, and sculpting bodies for them to inhabit when they visit here… as well as managing their web-circus right here. It might be my name in the address bar, but they’re in charge.

You can meet more of the characters that populate the circus as their stories are written in: Meet the Tribe! And you can peruse frequently asked questions here!
