Circus Starr – Macclesfield

Circus Starr returns back bigger and better than ever before to dazzle a discerning and deserving young audience.

Now in its 28th year of touring, Circus Starr continues to bring the magic of live circus performances to more than 27,000 vulnerable children and their families. Local businesses in each of the towns on the tour pledge thousands of pounds to fund free tickets that are donated to local children and their families through community groups. Businesses are pleased to have the chance to give back to their communities and children enjoy a rare treat, forget their troubles and escape to the circus with their families. A new showreel has been created, available to watch here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWyFUQ8ua3E
