Testimonials

Alison Edmondson - St Micheal's School, Stewkley

Happy Circus came to St Micheal’s School Stewkley on Saturday 13th May.
It was a truly wonderful afternoon. The Circus performance was brilliant, they got both adults and children laughing and the acrobats were astounding, definitely 5 star entertainment!
Everyone from school was very impressed and left ‘Happy’. We also managed to raise a lot of much needed funds to help with the school playground makeover project. I would recommend inviting Happy Circus to your school, it’s a novel, exciting and effective fundraiser.

 

Matt Fletcher, Head Teacher - Prestbury St Marys

I just wanted to e-mail you to thank you and your team for the fantastic circus event that took place here at Prestbury St. Mary’s on Saturday.  It was a tremendous success and the children and their families all really enjoyed it.  I found the whole operation incredibly professional – my Site Manager came down to school this morning to survey the site and found no evidence you had even been here!  Amazing!
Thank you so much once again and we look forward to inviting you back here in the future.

 

Vicky Shouksmith - Friends of Moulton Primary School

We invited Happy’s circus to our village primary school this week as a PTA event! They were fantastic!  The communication and organisation before they arrived was outstanding! Their arrival and preparation for the event was smooth and planned to perfection! They helped us run an event that was enjoyed by all the family at the same time as promoting our fundraising and helping us to raise funds for the school! We received brilliant reviews from everyone that attended! We would highly recommend them! Thanks Happy’s Circus you are fab!!! We wouldn’t hesitate to use you again!
