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!
Roll Up Roll Up, We are now booking dates in our 2015 diary. Circus PaZaz can come to your school or family event too! We are one of the UK’s smallest touring circus’s which makes us affordable to even the smallest schools. With the help from an enthusiastic PTA our little circus experience can be at no cost to your school & can help to fundraise. We are a Little Circus with Big Fun!
We took on the tent duty’s from Fred’s flying Circus just 2 summers ago & already have had some great experiences, feedback & many schools we have visited in the past are rebooking! Here are just two recent emails from schools: “Zaz, the PTA have decided they would definitely like to repeat the circus event next summer. My 2 still talk about your circus” & “You may remember that you came & set up your little circus on our Infant School field. We are considering having a circus event again next year around May time. Are you still up and running and if so would you be interested in coming back?” Yes indeed!! Book early to avoid disappointment!

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

My kids are still talking about it, we keep having to watch videos of Tilly twist at the moment! we will be back in touch probably after the summer to discuss possible dates for next year with you. Friends of St Mary’s Primary. Broadway, Worcestershire.
Brilliant addition to our sumer fete, thanks again for all the shows! lots of good feedback from everyone. Hadliegh Primary PTA Essex.
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….
