YOUNGSTERS tried out their circus skills at a free event.

Dozens of young people were entertained at the workshop, hosted at Port Solent yesterday.

Children tried their hand at plate spinning and juggling among other activities with teacher Mar Sarmiento.

Hannah Hill, marketing and events co-ordinator at Port Solent, said: ‘It’s part of our free kids’ club which we do every Wednesday and Saturday during the school holidays.

‘The children were learning all sorts of circus skills [such as] plate spinning and juggling.

‘It’s a free day out for the whole family.’

Port Solent will continue to host free events for young people at the site every Wednesday and Saturday until the end of the summer holidays.
