A free circus for people with learning disabilities and autism returns to Suffolk this September, thanks to sponsorship from a care firm.

For the second year, in-home care provider, Christies Care, based in Saxmundham, will sponsor a free show by Circus Petite at Felixstowe’s beachside events arena on Thursday, September 21.

The Wandering Grill burger van will provide free lunch ahead of the show, which includes a clown, jugglers, rope walking, hula-hooping and fire displays.

Lin Barnes, director at Christies Care, welcomed the opportunity to help provide the free event.

Daniel Bean, of Circus Petite, said: “We’re delighted Christies Care agreed to help us bring this special performance to fruition.

“Their specialist team helped ensure we are offering an entertaining show that is appropriate and comfortable.”

To book, call Ian Hart on 01728 605127.
