Nothing stops us here at Circus Starr, we aim to help vulnerable children make life long memories no matter what the weather! And now fresh off finishing our most recent tour we feel we have done just that.
In the winter we bring our shows indoor, meaning we visit theatres or school halls in a different community every single day. This January saw another fantastic run with our latest show, ‘The Greatest Snowman!’ which went down a storm.
Thanks to the support of businesses throughout the UK we were able to provide free tickets to special schools and organisations, giving many families a chance to experience live accessible arts for the first time.
Parents and children alike laughed at our hilarious clown Bippo and helped him on his quest to find ‘The Greatest Snowman’. Along the way our Ringmaster Joel Hatton introduced our audience to a variety of circus acts from juggling to the low wire, and generally tried his hardest to keep Bippo in check!
We had so much fun on this tour and it sounds like our audience did too. Mum Jemma said;
“We saw you in Brighton and just wanted to say WOW! Not only was the show entertaining and absolutely fantastic but the environment and opportunity to come along with my two autistic sons is something I’m extremely grateful for. Being a parent of two autistic kids is hard work to say the least and often prevents us attending shows, but you enabled us to feel comfort and enjoy all the fun and antics.”
Natalie Cunningham also enjoyed our show. “Your show was absolutely incredible! The most I have laughed and cheered in months! So very clever in the combination of humour and talent! Seriously, beyond any expectations I had on arrival and seeing the show for the first time. You guys do such a valuable, admirable thing and the results are remarkable. We have had such an awful past seven months but somehow made it to your show which for nearly a good two hours made us forget all of our worries, put a smile on our faces and put our heads back to roar with laughter! Absolutely priceless!”
A big thank you to all of the businesses who support our Winter tour and help us make a difference, without them our shows wouldn’t be possible. We look forward to starting our Spring tour in April 2019, to see where we are heading check out our tour dates or to support our cause call 01260 288690.
