Introducing our new patron

Introducing our new celebrity patron….

We are delighted to announce that actress Storme Toolis is our new patron.

It’s particularly poignant for Circus Starr that Storme is such a determined advocate for the rights of actors with disabilities. Over the coming year, we plan to keep Storme up to date with all of Circus Starr’s news and events and look forward to welcoming her to one of our Big Top performances in the very near future.

Storme Toolis adds: “The arts have always played a big part in my life and I’m passionate about breaking down barriers to accessing them. It’s an honour to be asked to be a patron of an organisation that has pioneered inclusive shows for 30 years inspiring families who might otherwise find it difficult to experience the joys of live performance.”      

Michelle Crossley, Director of Circus Starr adds, “We would like to thank Storme Toolis for taking on the role of patron at Circus Starr. It’s great to announce such exciting news in our 30th anniversary year. We are delighted to have the support of such a talented, fun-loving and sassy young woman.”

Storme starred in New Tricks and The Inbetweeners Movie. She was cast in the role of Juliet as part of the BBC Four’s Redefining Juliet and appeared in a Malteser advert highlighting the lighter moments in the lives of those living with a disability.  Storme has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.
