The UK’s most inclusive circus will roll into the city this weekend, as 1,000 local children and their carers are expected to visit Circus Starr.

The two completely-free, relaxed Big Top shows have been designed specifically for children who are often excluded from these kind of events because of their needs and circumstances. The 30-year-old social enterprise offers all the things you would expect of the traditional Big Top spectacle – energetic acrobats, daring aerialists and a very mischievous clown – but it’s the audience that sets their events apart.

Tickets are funded by local businesses looking to give back to the most over-looked in their communities and are pre-allocated to families who struggle to go to or enjoy a live performance.

The show will open this Sunday at Meadowhall’s Overflow Car Park, on Weedon Street, with performances at 2pm and 5pm. Email rachel@circus-starr.org.uk for details.
