What a lovely summer we had!

Phew & relax! well almost!, Zaz’s Bigtop is now safely packed away for winter, the baby tiny top tent & circus stage will still be in use for some schools without the large flat grass space the Bigtop requires & then xmas themed for Christmas family events & shopping centres.

This Summer was our 5th season together as Circus PaZaz & our busiest to date! We are proud to have helped lots more schools & PTA’s to enjoy our little circus in the local community whilst fundraising at the same time!  with all the great feedback we’ve had we know were doing good!“What a fabulous way to help raise funds for our school – Brilliant circus enjoyed by all” – “I would definitely recommend Circus PaZaz.” & “big thank you to Circus PaZaz for coming to our event for the 3rd year running 3 sell out shows! You guys are amazing!”                            We visited some great new places & met lots of lovely & helpful faces on our little circus tour, we returned to some locations re’booked from previous years, always welcomed with a buzz of excited children & parents who now knew what to expect & were ready to let our circus fun begin! Highlights for us include All those delicious Pta homemade cakes & ice creams, the epic 6 different shows on the hour all in just 1 day as the Cirque du funk @funkthefamilyfestival in Hove Park with special guest performers, Our 3rd year running sailed for our annual circus “holiday” to the tiny Channel Island Alderney for Alderney Week festivities, Getting lost together after the shows at the Amazing Cornish Maize Maze (were pleased to confirm we will be back for Alderney week & the Cornish Maze in August 2018) Thank you to all the parents, kidz & teachers who came & enjoyed our shows & workshops!          Here are a some snaps taken from this summer…….

Let’s Go Circus! Its Summer time again!

Zaz is happy to have started up Circus PaZaz again from winter hibernation! last Saturday saw us @the Phoenix festival for the 3rd year running in South East London. Here’s a few photo’s

We now will tour our little bigtop, show & workshops across the country visiting lots of schools, helping PTA’s to fundraise! & some really cool family events too! You can see our tour dates listed here. Clown Zaz, Tilly Twist, Super Joe & Aerial Anna would love to see you at one of our shows!

Unfortunately Clown Zaz is not available to help with small children’s birthday parties etc until October once the summer season has ended as he is just too busy doing circusy things with the circus, however can recommend the following performing friends to give you a professional birthday party to remember!

Loopy Lou all round loveable character & kidz party entertainer
Clumbsy’s Pirate, Clown, magic, balloons & awesome kidz discos!
Bubble fun for children with MUJISHAN BUBBLE SHOWS
One of Zaz’s favourite clowns! its…. Gingernutt the Clown

Start of the new year, planning & looking forward to another circus PaZaz summer tour!

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)

BBC News film Clown Zaz & Circus Pazaz

Back in June the BBC news came along to see the show! Our little Circus was pitched on Broadway village green in the beautiful Cotswalds. We joined the Friends of St Marys school PTA in making a school fete day for the children to remember! Our 3 circus shows helped fundraise for the school & despite the rainy weather the show went on!
