Mon 20 Jan Shows at 4:45pm and 7:00pm

Price: Application only

A trip to the circus is a magical experience that remains with children for the rest of their lives; something that all children deserve – and we make that happen. However, we don’t work alone – we have the support of some incredible people and organisations who make generous donations so that we can offer tickets to disabled and disadvantaged children and their families for free.

Put simply, we bring fun to you!

We believe in a world where anything is possible. We understand that attending mainstream events can be difficult for children with additional needs or families in difficult circumstances which is why we’ve created a tut-free zone; a show in which shouting out, dancing and jumping up and down are expected. At our circus, everyone is absolutely encouraged to let go of their worries, get involved, and be themselves.


What we do

We bring all the fun of the circus to children and families that may have found this difficult in the past. We know that a circus is a family event that brings everyone closer, encourages creativity and allows people to become stronger and more able to face life’s challenges head on. We tour the UK bringing the very best in circus talent from around the world and stage 148 incredible, animal-free shows every year.


Who we do it for

Children with disabilities, families on low incomes, those facing challenges such as domestic violence, bereavement or who may be living with a life-limiting condition. Every child, whoever they are, is free to be themselves at a Circus Starr Show – shout with joy, move to the music or appear centre stage!


Why we do it

We do it because nearly 1.5 million UK families can’t afford a single day out together. We do it because 50% of families with disabled children say that the stigma and discrimination they face makes them feel isolated. We create a magical world, harnessing the power of the circus and invite families with all kinds of different needs to have fun together in a safe, welcoming and unique atmosphere. In the Spring and Autumn Circus Starr can be experienced under the starry canopy of our big top; when winter makes accessibility more difficult, we perform indoors – using existing buildings during the colder and more unpredictable months means that we never disappoint our deserving audiences.

So, what we are is inclusive, exciting, non-judgemental, fun, accessible and magical and we bring all of this to you! Get excited, be excited and remember that excitement for years to come – we look forward to welcoming you.
