FREE panto tickets up for grabs in Scotland
Caudwell Children, the national charity that provides practical and emotional support to disabled children and their families, has announced that it has a limited number of FREE family tickets available for three performances of ‘Circus Starr Goes to Hollywood’ in Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow, in the New Year.
Presented and performed by Circus Starr, a touring circus boasting world-class professional artists from across the globe, the shows will take place at the following venues:
- Portobello Town Hall, Portobello High Street, Edinburgh, EH15 1AF at 4pm on Sunday 21st January, 2018
- Marryat Hall, City Square, Dundee, DD1 3BB, at 7pm on Monday 22rd January, 2018.
- Patrick Burgh Hall, 9 Burgh Hall Street, Glasgow, G11 5LN, at 7pm on Tuesday 23rd January, 2018.
Tickets are available to families with disabled children on a first come, first served basis.
Victoria Bruce, Senior Regional Family Services Coordinator for Caudwell Children, which was developed in Scotland with funding from the Big Lottery, says it’s a fantastic opportunity for disabled children to experience the excitement of the circus. As she explained: “It’s going to be great fun for all those who attend the show. It will be a relaxed performance which children of all abilities can enjoy together.
“The performance will see Circus Starr turning each venue into Tinseltown as the story will follow Europe’s funniest female clown, Andrea Delbosq, as she takes to the stage as a madcap movie director intent on making Britain’s favourite family circus show into a major action movie.
“It will be an awe inspiring show for the children and the performers will keep them well entertained. I would urge parents and carers of disabled children in each area to secure their tickets now to avoid disappointment as there is limited availability.”
The show will include plenty of audience participation, jokes and frolics and will also feature a unicyclist, roller skate act, illusionist, hand balance act and an acrobat.
Tickets for the show have been provided by Digby Brown Solicitors, the award winning law firm with offices across Scotland.
Victoria is delighted that they chose to donate tickets to the charity. She said: “Circus Starr is a Social Enterprise and they operate a unique donated ticket programme. The scheme allows children to attend free shows thanks to the generous support of local businesses.
“Digby Brown bought the tickets through the programme and then donated them back to a number of charities of their choice. It’s great for businesses to ‘give back’ to their community in this way and we’re so pleased that they thought of us.”
