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!
Up goes our little bigtop!
We do still have few possible free dates left for summer 2016 marked (AVAILABLE) click here to enquire or for info/dates for Summer 2017
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

Not long to go now until we hit the road for Summer 2014′ This year we start our summer season a little late in June due to the birth of Mr & Mrs Zaz’s 2nd child born on St Georges day, happy to report that both mum & baby Ollie are doing just fine. We have heard from clown Vicar Roly Bain that he is kean to offer us another Circus christening under the bigtop just like baby Zac’s last year (read about it here)
This summer we look forward to taking our little bigtop tent to schools & family events again not forgetting the fantastic Glastonbury festival Kidzfield where Zaz will be performing for the 4th year running amongst the coolest children’s entertainers, characters & cbbc presenters. We still have a few avalible dates left so if your school PTA are still looking for a great fundraising addition to the school fete be sure to get in touch quick as we may still be able to help! Look out for Circus PaZaz this summer to keep track of when & where we are visiting you can follow us on twitter or facebook
Our bigtop tent is now packed away for winter, its been a fantastic & challenging first season touring Circus PaZaz. We started the season in April christening our baby Zac at the farm in the beautiful Sussex countryside. Not only was this a good chance to invite our friends & family to see the circus but to clean & test out all the equipment. We then visited many primary school fetes with great feedback! With the help of each PTA we put up the tent & performed our shows as a highlight of the school fete. We played to hundreds of families & each of the schools we helped with their fete enjoyed our circus experience at no cost to their school & we also helped generate needed school funds! We also visited some schools during the week to actually teach the children their own show, then perform together for after school “showtime” We have already had lots of school PTA interest for 2014 so maybe we will be coming to Your school soon! As well as the schools highlights of this season include returning to Glastonbury Kidz field, Lawnfest, Sussex Youth arts festival “Dromos”, RAF Witingdon family day – So cool as the RAF provided Aircon units for the bigtop, and many more. Here are some snaps we took….

Hi everyone, just catching up with Zaz’s blog before we set off for Glastonbury festival. So far this summer we have visited quite a few primary schools with more to come. Last week we visited Giffards in Essex, a sentimantal gig as this is the school where Fred & Chi chi performed as freds flying circus for the last time & our 3rd visit. This school are especially nice & always thrilled that we take the time to visit them. We like to arrive after school & build up the tent with the help of the pta ready for all to see in the playground next morning. The school bell rings, soon after the first year3 class are sat on the grass sketching the tent whilst taking registration. Each year Giffards primary year 3 choose circus as a project. After playtime the class and teacher join us in the circus ring for the rest of the school day. Together the class learn their own show to perform at showtime after school. These workshops are a inspiring & interesting tool help to increase play, concentration, team work & self esteem levels not forgetting fantastic happy memories for all the family. Both classes of children did a fantastic job together we hope there parents are proud of them and everyone enjoined the 2 fantastic after school community events. Here are a few snaps to see….
Now we head south west to Glastonbury country! Zaz is pleased to be part of the Kidzfield the biggest free children’s party in Europe. Zaz will be performing in the kidz tent with some of the coolest crew including the CBBC presenters & many more! If your at Glastonbury with your children come say hi you won’t want to leave the Kidzfield! click here for lots more info bye for now, Zaz
