Happy Circus comes to Harestock Primary School in Winchester
11:30am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
HARESTOCK Primary School children in Winchester were treated to an afternoon extravaganza when Happy Circus came to town.
With the big top up, red-wig-clad clowns and artists performed magic tricks to scores of children and their parents, all to raise funds to replace the infants’ playground equipment.
Event organiser, parent-helper and member of the PTA, Ayala Gordon, said the children had a great time experiencing tricks of the trade including stilt walking and uni cycling.
“I went to see the Happy Circus ages ago and thought they’d be great at the school,” she said. “It was quite amazing.”
The circus gave way to the winners of the Harestock’s Got Talent competition; Josyan Ingram from Year 6 who sang My Guy and the Winchester Wild Cats who performed a street dance-cheerleader act.
Students currently studying street arts at Winchester University had earlier gone to the school to take workshops with the children in preparation for the arrival of the circus.
