3 Ring Riot is a circus company started in 2015 by us for you. After many years running our own companies we decided to unify our efforts and create something new.

Deryn has been a full time circus performer and instructor since 2010. Starting as a hula hoop, burlesque, acrobatic pole and acrobatic performer, she now specialises in her first love, hula hoops.

Paul is a multi award winning full time juggler, emcee, fire performer and juggling instructor, who has been carving out a passionate career since 2002.

Combining our talents to create memorable and unique shows for all stages and sharing our passion through teaching circus to all ages, 3 Ring Riot look forward to bringing the circus to you!
