We have three sizes of tent. Our largest will hold up to 300 children for Shows. Ideal for school time activity days, transition days, weekend school fairs and PTA fundraising events in and around Yorkshire.

Spalding High, Lincs
"This is the second event recently and you did a great job. Kyle & Obby were particularly good and really engaged with the children and the parents, everyone has made comments of how funny they were and the children were kept captivated. The show they put on at the end kept everyone focused especially the children (this is some achievement as some of the children have attention deficit disorder). Could not say enough about these guys really entertaining and would definitely use again"

St. Catherine’s School, Swindon
"Just wanted you to know what an amazing day both children and adults had on Wednesday, even with their embarrassments! The children came back to class animated and there was a definite buzz about circuses, from both boys and girls.  The peacock feathers are definitely a hit.  The adults enjoyed the difference of the activity and the obvious exhilaration the children experienced. Check out our website for photos www.st-catherines.org Thank you again for your time and the lovely rapport you developed with the children. Take care and enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend, fingers crossed for the weather!  Weren’t we lucky! "

"I just wanted to feedback to you following the workshop last week. We were really pleased with the workshop. Obby managed the young people really well. As you may be aware we are a fostering organisation so all of the young people in attendance are currently living with Foster Parents. They can be challenging at times and when together in a group this can heighten the behaviours they exhibit. Obby showed the young people how to use all the different equipment clearly and with humour. He spent time with those that struggled and encouraged them when necessary. He was able to sense when to move things along and made sure that everyone felt included, even staff! At the end of the day, young people had the opportunity to show Foster Parents what they had learnt which was lovely to see"

"I just wanted to pass on thanks from everyone for a fabulous day – lawyers are not the easiest people to please! We know we had a successful event because the kids didn’t want to leave! Please thank the rest of your team for me – they were helpful, engaging and entertaining"

Claverley School, Shropshire
"A big sunny thank you to you all!  It was fantastic & you all worked really hard! The 2 days with Circus Sensible were wonderful. On Friday the children had a fabulous time learning all the circus skills & watching the show. Saturday was our school fete day. The feedback so far from people is that it was the best yet!  The big top made a fantastic centre piece to the fete. The shows & workshops kept the crowds entertained throughout the day. The balloon modelling was also a big hit too, nearly everyone had a fish or alien tucked under their arm as they left. The weather was perfect & your team really entertained everyone & didn't stop until the very end. Everyone left smiling & laughing & we raised a few pounds for our PTA funds too!  Thank you Circus Sensible I would recommend you to anyone & would certainly have you back again"
