After a fantastic 2016 summer tour (Summer ’16 photos) Visiting & performing our show at many lovely schools helping them to fundraise & some great family events, Zaz packed away his little bigtop to bed for winter. Since Christmas Zaz has been very busy with a record number of January birthday parties (available for parties Oct-May) & a large children’s charity event, not forgetting last Sundays Annual Grimaldi Church service. (view CNN news short film here) Most years Zaz makes the trip to London along with many clowns from all over the country & overseas. Clowns have continued this tradition since 1946. Each year candles are lit to remember clowns passed but not forgotten RIP. This past year we said farewell to too many well known & much loved clowns, Echo, Mr Mudge, Oleg Popov, Pierre Picton, Pip Fredrick, Bonzo ‘the almost famous clown’ & our much loved Clown Rev. Roly Bain, who has lead many of the Grimaldi services in the past. He has been the perfect choice of person to give funerals, weddings or baptise within the clown & circus world. In April 2013 Roly came to Sussex to give a christening for Zaz’s own son Izaac (now 4yrs old) & he also blessed Zaz’s newly acquired bigtop tent for a long, successful and safe time for all who perform under its canvas. Roly will be greatly missed by so many as he touched the hearts of many & was well known for his work as a vicar but using his gift of clowning to light heartedly teach his message & spread joy & love to all he met. RIP Roly (read more about Roy Bain)
