Free Circus performance for people with Learning Disabilities


Circus Petite is a brand new touring circus from Ipswich, which is taking its debut tour around Suffolk towns and villages throughout September and October. Acts include the amazing Justo the Clown, jugglers, tight and slack rope walking (tight rope that swings) hula-hooping, unicycling, magic, diablo, acrobatics, poi artists and lots more.

Christies Care’s specialist Learning Disabilities team have been advising the Circus on how to ensure the performance is a positive, enjoyable experience for all and easily accessible for the audience. They are being supported by Woodbridge Rugby Club, home of the Wheeled Warriors wheelchair rugby team, who are providing their facilities for free for this performance.

Lin Barnes, Director of Christies Care said: “We share a desire for inclusivity with Circus Petite and Woodbridge Rugby Club. We saw an opportunity to work together to bring this magical circus performance to an audience of people who have learning disabilities. With the fabulous accessible facilities at Woodbridge Rugby Club and the open mindedness of the team at Circus Petite, we’re enabling more people to have a great community experience.”

David Bean, co-founder of Circus Petite, said: “We were delighted that Christies Care agreed to help us to bring this special performance to fruition. Their specialist team have helped us to ensure we are offering an entertaining show that is appropriate and comfortable for an audience of people who have learning disabilities. With the facilities at Woodbridge Rugby Club, this is going to be great.”

While there’s no charge for the special Learning Disabilities performance on Monday 3rd October at 1pm, booking is essential as places are limited. Please contact Ian Hart at Christies Care on 01728 605127 to book.
