Today our children from Oswald Road Primary School attended the Magical Circus! I can truly say that this was the best trip I have ever been on.
Melanie and Angelo were so lovely with our children. The setting was so age appropriate and so safe for our children. This was the easiest trip I have ever been on. The children thoroughly enjoyed the tricks and the apparatus. Thank you so much.
I will be recommending to everyone I know.
A fantastic afternoon, just the start to Christmas! Thank you so much for the fun. You said it would be magical and it was!
We've just had the most magical afternoon at Aughton St. Michaels school.
Kuki & Krums brought their Magical Christmas Circus to see us and it was outstanding. Non-stop fun from start to finish. The children (& adults) thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The little boy who's birthday it was said "the best birthday ever". We can highly recommend the Magical Circus, they took control of everything and we were just able to enjoy the show - Thank you so much x
Dear Melanie & Angelo, I just wanted to say thank you, everyone has loved the work you have done with the children over the last two days. All the staff have commented on how accommodating you have been with the children, especially the children with special needs and additional needs. Thank you also for the equipment for the playground and competition prizes. They are great and the children are very excited about them . Thanks again, Louise
Melanie and Angelo provided
our children with an absolutely awesome
day! Our Year 2 children were
engaged throughout the
whole day - being effectively
taught and then getting to
support, a range of
Smiles were on our faces the whole day day, including at the end when they organised a chance for parents to see what the children had achieved! We would definitely recommend- why visit the circus when you can be part of it!

Melanie and Angelo,
Can I just say thank you for the
two brilliant days you have spent
in our school. Every single child
and member of staff thoroughly
enjoyed learning the various skills
you taught us and I know they are
something that many of our children
will continue to practice over the
coming weeks and months.
If you would like any photographs, artwork or writing to use on your website or other literature, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Many thanks once again.

Melanie were bubbly, friendly and professional at each stage and I would not hesitate to highly recommend them.
We had Melanie and Angelo in to St.Joseph's Primary school to open our 'Circus Topic.' They opened with a whole school assembly which hooked the children into the topic and created much excitement.
Next they then provided 'circus skills' sessions for the children in KS1 and KS2 over a two day period. Both Angelo and Melanie were bubbly, friendly and professional at each stage and I would not hesitate to highly recommend them for any occasion both in and out of the school environment.
I have not seen the children
smile so much in a long time in
spite of us providing an enriched
curriculum within school. It set
the tone for our topic and the
children produced some fantastic
work from the experience.
Review from Mr Roden - St. Joseph's Primary School, Chorley 28 and 29 of April 2014
We had a visit from the lovely people from Magical Circus this week. Melanie and Angelo brought lots of equipment for us to use. We started off with a warm up and were quickly juggling, spinning plates and using stilts! Angelo even used a tightwire!
It was a terrific afternoon which finished with a Parents Assembly where we demonstrated our newly found skills to our Mums and Dads.
Thank you Melanie and Angelo! It was a wonderful day!St. Thomas Werneth C. of E. Primary School
Dear Melanie and Angelo,
Wow! What a super day we had with yourselves. You provided a top class act which was thoroughly enjoyed by children, staff and parents. Excellent value.

What a magical day it has been indeed. The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves practising circus skills.
The morning began with an assembly for the whole school, including reception who attended with their Year 6 buddies. During the assembly Angelo and Melanie performed circus tricks including stilt walking with a giant puppet, juggling, balancing acts and a tight wire performance. The children (and adults!) really enjoyed the show and were enthusiastic about the day ahead.
During the morning sessions Angelo and Melanie taught the children a range of circus skills, breaking them down into progressive steps, for example when juggling some children started with simply throwing and catching a scarf. They then progressed onto throwing two or 'rainbow' throws from hand to hand. The year twos were then able to show further progression by balancing a ball under their chins and catching it in their hands whilst throwing the other ball! They also learned the tricky skill of diablo; much harder than it looks, believe me I spent most of the day practising! The children were given stilts and taught how to use these. They were also shown how to spin plates.
The children showed super levels of enthusiasm throughout the morning and were eager to please and determined to succeed which was one of the key messages of the day, 'practice makes perfect.'
After lunch each class were given a half hour slot to practice their favourite skill in preparation for the presentation assembly.
At 2 o'clock Mums and Dads were welcomed into the children's classrooms to try out a variety of activities including icing biscuits, painting, memory games, colouring and plasticine modelling. It is always lovely to have such a good attendance to these events as the children enjoy showing off their work and having the chance to work alongside their parents.
The final assembly was a fantastic opportunity for the children each to have their own moment to shine. Each child was able to perform one of the skills they had learned which was fantastic.
I would like to thank Angelo and Melanie for a super day and a perfect reflection for our circus topic. I would also like to thank the parents of year 1 and 2 children for their kind donations towards the cost of the day, without this it would not have been possible. One last big thank you to the children for their super behaviour and lovely manners throughout the day. You have made both myself and Mrs Kirkham smile and feel very proud.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and thanks again for your continued support.

Friday the 13th was a surprisingly lucky day for our Early Years Foundation, as the Magical Circus came to Mossfield.
Kuki and Krums the clowns entertained children with an array of antics, and colourful Christmas characters.
Children were treated to a special Kuki and Krums pantomime, and were assisting with magic tricks as they celebrated Christmas in the most fun way possible.
The children were kept well entertained, and there were laughs all round as the clowns showed off with their seriously silly jokes and antics.

showed off excellent skills on the
stilts, Mrs Warburton and Mrs
McManus had goes on the High Wire

the pedal go's.
Melanie and Angelo were full of enthusiasm and aided our pupils to get the most out of the day. At all times they were friendly, well organised and not phased by the challenges our pupils faced.
The pupils did them selves proud, throughout the day they gave all tasks 100%, as a staff we were all really proud of every student trying the high wire, which was approx. 3foot off the ground!

Hi Mel and Angelo,
Just wanted to thank you for your great performance yesterday, the children were totally engaged with your workshop and I think Angelo would still be there now making Balloons judging by the queue.
I think we may be making it an annual event so watch this space.
Many Thanks again.
