It is with great sadness that we learned last night of the passing of Will Chamberlain, Director and Chief Executive of Belfast Community Circus School.
This wonderfully charismatic man passed away peacefully yesterday evening, the 19th October, surrounded by his family.
Our thoughts and love are with his daughters Ellie and Bethany, and his great friend and confidante, Cath.
There is no doubt that Will, from arriving in Northern Ireland in the early 1990's was a tremendous driving force behind the Circus School and we would not be the envy of the world without his foresight, drive and ambition for us. Will was also a wonderful friend to us all, inspiring us with his vision, drive and determination and his utter belief that we could achieve the dream.
The work of the Circus School cannot be overstated and the impact it continues to have on thousands of young people today.
The world is a sadder place without him.
He will be missed terribly, but the Circus School will continue to pursue his dreams and work to make them a reality.
Arrangements for the celebration of his life will be released soon.
