Parties at NICA

Join us to celebrate your special occasion with a circus twist!

NICA Rec’s parties are suitable for those aged 5 years and up. You will enjoy high-energy games and circus activities in a fun, safe and inclusive circus workshop at NICA’s impressive circus training centre in Prahran. 

P.S. Our parties aren’t just for kids! Teens, adults and hens, why should you miss out on all the fun? Enjoy a party with a difference and take advantage of all the restaurants, bars and nightlife Chapel Street has to offer, just metres away.

How will my party run?

Your party will run for 2 hours in total, including a 1.5-hour workshop led by NICA’s fun circus trainers followed by 30 minutes of ‘party time’ in your dedicated party space! 

You’ll choose three circus activities for your party. Choose from juggling and manipulation, hula-hoops, tight wire, tumbling/acrobatics, partner balancing, trampoline or static trapeze. 

NICA will provide you with a colourful circus themed electronic invitation and a ‘party time’ space set up with trestle tables and chairs. You are free to bring your own decorations, tablecloths, party food and drinks which can be set up while the circus activities are running. 

Choose between cleaning up yourself or we can do it for you for an additional fee ($88).
