Changing Arts Through Changing Places

This Autumn we very proudly became the first Circus in the UK to tour with a Mobiloo! This meant that every single one of our magical shows had changing places facilities, providing a toilet, hoist and adjustable changing table.

From feedback we knew that these facilities might be used, especially by those with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), and we now know that there is now no doubt that the facilities were needed.

The Mobiloo was used 870 times throughout our tour which visits 27 towns! By having the converted vehicle on site we weren’t only supplying the facilities needed, but also providing peace of mind and opportunity for many of our audience members.

Changing Places campaigner Alison Beevers explains, “
It’s the difference between us going or not going, simple as that! Due to my son’s disabilities we sometimes struggle to find activities he can participate in. Finding ones we can all take part in and enjoy together as a family mean a lot to us.”

With this phenomenal response we look to have a Mobiloo changing places toilet with us at all of our future Big Top shows, and continue to be the circus of the #RevoLOOtion!

To find out more about how we got changing places toilets at our shows, take a look at our article on the Arts Professional.
