Scotland’s first contemporary circus festival, Braw, takes center-stage at Platform for three days in September in the 250th anniversary of the invention of modern circus. Showcasing, celebrating and supporting Scotland’s most daring and talented circus companies and creators, the first Braw Festival marks a tipping point in the development of Scottish contemporary circus. 

Bringing together five action-packed shows and ten pieces of developing work from Scotland’s circus talents, Braw will be kick-starting by a symposium called Circus Patter which will bring the Scottish circus community together under one roof to imagine its future.
