We are Circus Starr, a community interest company that is passionate about sharing the magical art of circus with those who are disabled, vulnerable, and disadvantaged. We started making a positive impact on young lives over 30 years ago and never stopped. A circus displays various beautiful art forms, as well as providing comical entertainment. We know how life changing the arts can be, and that’s why we strive to make it available for everybody no matter what obstacles they may face. Put simply – we bring fun to those who need it most.
For vulnerable and disabled children, the last 18 months has been especially hard with very little outside help available to families. The support of the James Beattie Trust will mean that isolated children in Wolverhampton are able to come together to explore live performance, overcome fears and try new adventures.
“Laughing is good for our mental health. A real boost that helps you cope with what life with a disabled child can throw at you.”
