Entertainment during the COVID 19 Pandemic
These are scary times, not only are we faced with isolation but how to explain to our children that they have to miss out on their special birthday or celebration and not scare and disappoint. So we've come up with some suggestions that will hopefully help parents out.
The following options are mainly for children and to try and keep everyone smiling during this time. Adult events are also covered in our refund policy and we will also be offering the 1:1 special lessons in your home once lockdown has ended (UPDATE - AVAILABLE NOW! IN YOUR GARDEN OR OUTDOOR AREA) and we can do so safely and recommend checking out our online courses (above) to learn a new skill whilst at home in your own time.
All our walkabout, shows and fire entertainment is now available for booking for any event held after 11th July.

Recommendations and updates are happening daily so we're staying on top of all Government procedures and adapting where necessary whilst maintaining high levels of health and safety. So here are some options for you that we've put into place to try and ease the stress during this crazy time:
Circus Birthday Parties - Updated July 2020
We have adapted version of our circus entertainment at present which includes a maximum of 4 guests (as we require one adult to be present) or a maximum of 10 children from two households (the maximum by law for any gathering is 30, guidance states from only two households, and we're only able to accommodate individual equipment for 10 at present) OUTDOORS.
Each child get a set of equipment for their own use throughout the party. We start with a mini show and the party fun runs for one hour including a demonstration of skills, time to experiment with the individual equipment in their own area and then a mini show at the end by the guests! You can also select any party package from our list and we can adapt this to one hour along with government safety guidance.
We are only taking one booking per day to give us time to thoroughly clean the equipment between uses and this is at a reduced rate due to the limited guests and timings available at present. Contact us for more information or check out our blog entry for more details of what can and can't be done! BLOG HERE
Our normal larger parties for two hours are currently on hold until further notice. We're moving all parties currently booked to a future date and still taking bookings for September onwards but feel it is best to hold any mass gatherings at present, disappointing though this is. All parties currently booked will get as many extras as we're able to squeeze in to their future party to make it up to the birthday child for having to wait.
We're very flexible with deposits and payments at present, so you can book without worry as to what the future may bring.
We would urge anyone to book a date now for September onwards as it's on a first come first served basis, plus your deposit will help ensure our survival during this time. It will also give you something positive and exciting to look forward to afterwards!
1:1 Circus Entertainment
As an alternative to cancelling or even as something special we can arrange a special 1:1 live video link with one of our performers to teach your child a new skill they can continue to practice in the coming weeks. We can also now provide 1:1 lessons and fun in your garden or park area so contact us for further information!
We can also give you links to purchase your own circus equipment for your child to keep and continue their practice over the holidays - hours of fun!
We can make an extra special balloon creation to deliver direct to your door if you're within the Sussex area, and for the older children include one of our balloon twisting kits for them to have a go themselves!
We even have a special circus skill pack which includes a piece of equipment of your choice (hula hoop, diabolo, spinning plate, poi or juggling balls) with an instructional booklet and links to our kid friendly video tutorials online. These vary in price depending on the equipment you would like so just contact us for more information.
We're here to help any way we can. Contact us if you have any worries about your event or are interested in our alternative options above, or even have something different you would like us to do for you!
