Circus Starr Celebration

I am proud to be the Patron of Circus Starr.  They won an award for the best bit of tech to help people with Autism.  This App prepares people for a visit to the circus so you know what to expect and you can enjoy it.  I went up to Crewe to meet VIPs to celebrate Circus Starr’s success, and drink some champagne! Here are a couple of photographs.

Afterwards the lovely audience came in and we enjoyed a fantastic Big Top show.  Below I am standing with Joseph Dutton, he is 16 and has come to see the Circus over the years with Cheshire Academy.  He really enjoyed the occasion.
