We started our 6th tour in Zaz’s hometown of Bognor Regis for a massive circus workshop whilst the royal wedding was shown on a big screen in Hotham park. Then we head further north to a school in Newark who first contacted us 4 years ago! so great to make it happen at last! all the children came to see the circus show as treat to celebrate their schools birthday. In Essex we visited Quilters junior school after setting up the bigtop on a Sunday afternoon with the pta we stayed pitched on their school field for the whole week! The head teacher was very enthusiastic & we taught the children their own show which they then preformed after school for the parents followed by our show with popcorn of course! With school summer fete season in full swing we visited many schools across the south & again have received lots of positive feedback from schools saying how they loved our shows & what a great way to fundraise for their school circus pazaz was! In August we were invited back for the 4th time! to perform & celebrate the 70th Alderney week festival, a great working holiday & amazing chance to visit the tiny channel Island of Alderney. Then in Cornwall we were back for the 2nd year for showtime at the Cornish maize maze a wonderful little farm & family attraction. So good! that this year Zaz’s kids Zac & Olly came a day early to see the maze & help with the shows before heading back to Sussex for Bank Holiday weekend & Worthing Carnival. On day 1 sadly the weather & wind wasn’t friendly & despite a few kids coming for the workshops in the morning the event had to closed late afternoon. Next day the sun was back out & so were the people of Worthing! After the carnival when it was show time we had to completely open the side walls to allow people watch from outside the tent too, this must have been our busiest show ever! Then in September the new school year began & we put up the tent for a few more school events & end of summer fairs locally in Sussex before rolling up the tent for the last pack away of this season…..2018 was 250th year of Circus as we know it – the circus comes in many shapes & sizes, as one of the smallest circuses in the UK we consider ourselves lucky & take pride in the work we do, both in preparation & presenting our little circus experience & look forward to more circus fun in 2019!

With summer just around the corner Zaz & the Circus Pazaz team are getting ready for what is set to be another fantastic summer! We will be returning to a few of our favourite fun family events like Funk the family, Jersey Live & Alderney week set on the tiny Island of Alderney. We will again be visiting many Schools to share our little circus experience & help raise funds working in partnership with the school PTA. We hope to see you at one of our shows or circus workshops this summer!

Whilst we are busy enjoying the good weather, the end of our summer tour isn’t far away…. here is an excellent article from the nice people @PTA+ Magazine page 53-56 researching into “Circus for schools” including a great review of the Circus PaZaz team!
Back in June the BBC news came along to see the show! Our little Circus was pitched on Broadway village green in the beautiful Cotswolds. We joined the Friends of St Marys school PTA in making a school fete day for the children to remember! Our 3 circus shows helped fundraise for the school & despite the rainy weather the show went on! www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine Video journalist: Dan Curtis
