CIRCUS Starr is to return to Wrexham with their inclusive circus inspired show.

The charitable organisation puts on inclusive circus shows for disabled and disadvantaged children.

Free tickets are sent to children and their families through a network of hospices, schools, hospitals, regional branches of national charities and support groups; families can also apply direct to Circus Starr.

The Leader:

This year’s event will be different as it is held indoors rather than in their Big Top Tent.

Due to rising costs and logistical challenges the not for profit organisation is unable to hold the show outdoors this year. However, they are proud to be able to continue their valuable work by holding their accessible show indoors, meaning that deserving families don’t miss out on experiencing a magical performance.

Unlike a commercial circus, the CIC adapts the event to suite their unique audience by lowering the volume, toning down the lights, providing sensory packs and offering free tickets.

The Leader:

Their whole operation is only possible thanks to kind donations from community driven businesses in the area.

Their 2024 production promises to amaze the vulnerable and disabled children in attendance.

The Leader:

Fundraising director Michelle Crossley is looking forward to the Spring tour. She said: “We love sharing our magical art form with those who usually miss out. I am so happy that we can still share a fabulous show with the community, despite the challenges we are currently facing. Thank you so much to all the businesses who have helped us continue our valuable work in their town.”

The community interest company relies on donations to be able to hold their inclusive events, and contact local business in each are they visit to see if they would like to cover the cost of a child’s ticket.

Donations are welcomed by anyone who would like to help make a difference. The performances will be held at 1.30pm and 4pm at Wrexham Memorial Hall on Saturday, June 1.
