We’re supporting Circus Starr for another year!April 18, 2017
At Wybone, we’ve been sponsoring the Circus Starr charity for the past three years. This year they’re celebrating 30 years of circus magic, enriching and inspiring the lives of children and families since 1987.
Circus Starr is a world class, touring circus featuring acrobats, dancers and entertainers from around the world. The charity circus provides new opportunities for vulnerable, sick or disabled children and their families to enjoy the spectacle of live performance, creating shared memories that will last a lifetime.
The money we donate every year goes to providing tickets for children and families to go to the show and experience the magic on our behalf.
Circus Star originated as a benefit circus by the Gandsey circus family who started fundraising for several charities. In 2010, Circus Starr became a community interest company (CIC) and social enterprise, and turned its attentions to putting on the best performances possible.
Now in 2017, the demand for tickets to their shows have gone through the roof, and the capacity of the arena is always exceeded. It’s now a 75-venue tour held three times a year, with an on-going mission to make shows more accessible and user friendly.
The spring tour starts this weekend April 22, and will be touring around the country until June. Click here to visit their website.
