Roll up, roll up for a special day out at Zippos Circus!


On Saturday 9th September our Fare teams were happy to jump through hoops to cater for the Children with Cancer UK family day out to Zippos Circus.

The event was held on Peckham Rye Common complete with a mini-big top, main big top, ringmaster and all the thrills of the circus.

On arrival, the children and their families were welcomed by Mr Strong and shown into the mini-big top for some delicious welcome refreshments including pastries, croissants and fresh fruit.

They moved on into the big top where they enjoyed a sensational circus extravaganza, featuring over 20 performers.

Veteran ringmaster, Norman Barret MBE, hosted the colourful and action-packed two hours of high-energy acts from across the world.

After the show, it was back to the mini big top for the families to enjoy an indulgent post-show lunch including tasty salads, pasta dishes, a delicious selection of cakes and even a cheeseboard.

After lunch, the children had a chance to meet the stars of the show and try out some of the circus tricks.

When the children left, chatting excitedly about their favourite parts of the show, they were each given a present as a reminder of an unforgettable day.
