    "A huge thanks to Jon and Kyle who were brilliant with the children and 'big kids' too! As you said they really worked round us and enabled the day to be relaxed and fun. The two guys kept things moving along for the children and got everyone involved. You may have new recruit to help with your annual festival in Scotland. Shuna, one of our play therapists does circus skills too and was chatting to Jon and Kyle. Great how these days pan out....... Thanks again"

    Spalding High, Lincs
    "This is the second event recently and you did a great job (we will send you copies of the evaluations) Kyle & Obby were particularly good and really engaged with the children and the parents, everyone has made comments of how funny they were and the children were kept captivated. The show they put on at the end kept everyone focused especially the children (this is some achievement as some of the children have attention deficit disorder). Could not say enough about these guys really entertaining and would definitely use again"

    "I just wanted to feedback to you following the workshop last week. We were really pleased with the workshop. Obby managed the young people really well. As you may be aware we are a fostering organisation so all of the young people in attendance are currently living with Foster Parents. They can be challenging at times and when together in a group this can heighten the behaviours they exhibit. Obby showed the young people how to use all the different equipment clearly and with humour. He spent time with those that struggled and encouraged them when necessary. He was able to sense when to move things along and made sure that everyone felt included, even staff! At the end of the day, young people had the opportunity to show Foster Parents what they had learnt which was lovely to see"

    "Mr Sensible was fantastic. The children were captivated and found his show amazing and hilarious! His methods of teaching the basics of scarf juggling and feather balacing ensured that all children succeeded and were engaged. The variety of equipment he brought was vast and the children really enjoyed the opportuinity to try so many different skills. A brilliant morning - thank you! "

    St Philips YC, Kelsall
    "We have used Circus Sensible 3 times now, twice at our Youth Club and once at a Summer Holiday Club. Each time they have been brilliant, great with the children, thoroughly entertaining, everyone always takes part, even the adults! It's great how they start off with easy, manageable tricks to build confidence to then work on more difficult skills. It is all done with humour and fun and makes for a really great time for everyone present. They bring a huge amount of equipment so everyone can have a go at everything. Easy to book and totally reliable, I can't praise them enough!"

A truly authentic circus experience.Delighted with Circus Sensible. Kat was brilliant, she has such a lovely way with the children and they enjoyed working with her! She has such great enthusiasm.

    "I would like to express my gratitude to all at Circus Sensible for the Fantastic day you gave everyone at Upton Priory. The children thoroughly enjoyed every second. The children and their diabolo's have transformed playtimes, with the children happily sharing and teaching each other new tricks. It has given them a focus and activity during chill time. I cannot thank you enough for the entertainment and promotion of simple skills and basic fun Circus Sensible have introduced to the children. Thank you"
