Baby Izaac’s Circus Christening day

DSC_5989In addition to zaz’s usual half term & kids party fun We’ve had a busy Feb/April getting final visits & arrangements in place for the summer season.                       My new project Circus Pazaz with the help of Fred from Fred’s flying circus is taking shape. One big job that was needed before opening was to wash the tent. By circus standards our tent is a baby to,  but still, washing a 50ft tent is an operation. With that in mind I had arranged a spot in the farmers field to do this. We had a water tap in the field, all that was needed was sunshine, help from friends & lots of sponges. Most of our friends have kids, but due to work commitments they don’t see ‘Zaz’ that often sadly…..Drying the tent meant putting it up completely.  We thought that it would be a perfect chance to celebrate the birth our first baby, Izaac & let our friends children & family enjoy a day at our new little circus. The farmer liked the idea & offered us a fantastic field set in the beautiful Sussex South Downs & we invited clown vicar Rev Roly Bain to perform, christen Izaac & bless our new tent in a circus way but still by the Church of England. Saturday the 20th April was confirmed & it truly was a day we will always remember. We invited friends & family for a midday service in the tent followed by BBQ games, family disco, ending the day with showtime! Some performer friends came as guests but also generously performed too. The weather was perfect, baby Izaac was so good & seems very at home under the canvas. When he is older we will show him the photos & tell him about his circus christening on world circus day. Photos thanks to Steve Jacks & Rob Shone
