Current Projects

What’s happening?

Jacksons Lane has a range of participation projects to suit all ages and interests. Whether you are looking for an after-school activity or want to get involved with a Haringey-based over-55s community group, we have you covered.

Young People

We have plenty to offer for young people wanting to get involved with the art of circus. We do not hold auditions for any of our programmes, and are committed to making each session accessible for every young person we work with.

JL Circus

JL Circus offers free weekly classes and theatre sessions to young people in Haringey out of school hours. These sessions culminate in our annual JL Circus Showcase, where young people are able to create stories and perform the best circus tricks they’ve learnt on a professional theatrical stage.

JL Youth Board

The JL Youth Board is formed of a core group of JL Circus participants and offers a platform for young people’s voices: a creative and interactive space to shape the future development of JL Circus.

LAUNCH is our free careers and skills development programme, offering interactive schools workshops that illuminate the many career paths within the arts. LAUNCH’s other component is our free weekly Drama and Theatre sessions for 16 – 25-year-olds, held at Jacksons Lane.

Adult Programming

Our programming for Haringey-based adults has been hailed as reducing isolation and increasing engagement in the community for all.

Lockdown Lunch

Following on from our decades-long tradition of Thursday lunches at Jacksons Lane, guests join our facilitator for a weekly artistic exchange for over-55s, via Zoom. 

Lockdown Lunch is an evolution of our pre-pandemic Social Lunch programme, which has blossomed into something quite of its own.

Feeling Good

Feeling Good matchmakes isolated and vulnerable older adults with a volunteer through personality, preference and postcode. 

The project has created more than 100 pairings since beginning in 2021.


Together has enabled enriching partnerships between arts practitioners, care workers and health professionals in Haringey.

We work with a commitment to reducing isolation and increasing well-being for our participants.

Christmas Day

Our showpiece event for older adults. Christmas Day at Jacksons Lane consists of welcoming older adults who are alone during the holidays for a festive celebration, and has been going for more than 45 years.
