The Circus with a Purpose
Circus Starr is a touring circus boasting world-class, professional artists from across the globe. It was first founded in 1987 and provides free seats for thousands of disadvantaged, disabled or vulnerable children, whilst helping to raise much needed funds for local charities.
Through its unique network of partner charities and local businesses, Circus Starr provides over £1.3 million worth of free tickets to children, their families and community groups throughout the UK every year.
Putting Children in the Spotlight
Circus Starr is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to support local businesses and local children’s charities through a 75 venue tour hosted three times a year. A Social Enterprise with children at its heart, Circus Starr operates a unique Donated Ticket Programme that allows thousands of children to attend free shows thanks to the generous support of local businesses who, in turn, enjoy the opportunity to ‘give back’ to their communities.
Reaching Every Child, Every Show
Since Circus Starr was first established 1987, it has given over one million underprivileged children and children with disabilities the chance to run away to the circus and forget their troubles for a day.
We know these trips hold many benefits and have even been life-changing for some. Parents and carers of the children at our shows frequently report:
- Reduced sense of fear, isolation and anxiety
- Increased confidence, sociability and self-esteem
- Greater connectedness to others, a feeling of inclusion
