I want to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself, PTA and the school for the amazing evening everyone had last Friday.
The whole evening was perfect, the atmosphere was fantastic and the circus was the source of conversation the following morning in the local hairdressers (so I’m told!) From the moment I nervously booked you way back whenever, to seeing the team off site on the Saturday morning, the whole process has been wonderful. You have all been so helpful, friendly, and given great advice, especially when the circus team arrived at the school, in giving us ideas for setting out our stalls.
For a fairly small school we did really well with selling more than 80% of our tickets to family members within school. Although we still have final figures to sort out we look to have made around the £3000 mark.
We would love to book you again!!
Berkley Primary School
I just wanted to write to say ‘thank you’ for an amazing two days at Loose Primary School. It has been a hugely successful event with everyone buzzing from it all. You guys in the office have been a dream to work with and we really appreciate how you worked with us and met our school’s demands. Pip and Ross and the rest of Red Team were amazing. A pleasure to work with, helpful and respectful of our school and gave the children and families a simply wonderful experience.
Thank you all.

The whole team were fantastic, professional, always positive and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble including a last minute venue change. Thank you. We all enjoyed the show and there were lots of happy children.
Cranford House School
A massive thank you to all the crew, especially ring master Ross who helped me through the whole day. They were so inclusive of everyone’s needs, receiving tremendous praise from all who attended. We were quite anxious about the initial costs but we achieved to raise a large amount of funds for our school whilst having fun. Thank you to all staff who supported us through the whole process.

Could you please pass on our thanks to pip, Ross and the happy circus crew for providing such a wonderful event at Bromham primary school last Wednesday. We were thoroughly impressed the fact that they arrived and we did not even realize they were there, the set up and pack down was amazing. People are already asking when we are doing it again.
Massive thank you to Ross, Pop and the Happy’s Circus team on Sunday.
The Circus show was absolutely amazing – the right balance of acts and comedy. So much crammed into the performances – Ross and Pip were very funny and got funnier during the show. Our kids absolutely loved it!!
So many fantastic and positive comments from parents afterwards as well as the school so a big well done and thank you again.
I suspect that the HSA/School would love to have you back in the future.
Holyport School Association
We invited Happy’s circus to our village primary school this week as a PTA event! They were fantastic! The communication and organisation before they arrived was outstanding! Their arrival and preparation for the event was smooth and planned to perfection! They helped us run an event that was enjoyed by all the family at the same time as promoting our fundraising and helping us to raise funds for the school! We received brilliant reviews from everyone that attended! We would highly recommend them! Thanks Happy’s Circus you are fab!!! We wouldn’t hesitate to use you again!
Friends Of Moulton Primary School
I just wanted to e-mail you to thank you and your team for the fantastic circus event that took place here at Prestbury St. Mary’s on Saturday. It was a tremendous success and the children and their families all really enjoyed it. I found the whole operation incredibly professional – my Site Manager came down to school this morning to survey the site and found no evidence you had even been here! Amazing!
Thank you so much once again and we look forward to inviting you back here in the future.
With very best wishes,
Executive Head Teacher
Happy Circus came to St Micheal’s School Stewkley on Saturday 13th May.
It was a truly wonderful afternoon. The Circus performance was brilliant, they got both adults and children laughing and the acrobats were astounding, definitely 5 star entertainment!
Everyone from school was very impressed and left ‘Happy’. We also managed to raise a lot of much needed funds to help with the school playground makeover project. I would recommend inviting Happy Circus to your school, it’s a novel, exciting and effective fundraiser.
Fantastic all round – impressive organisation and efficiency, and great show
Bristol Grammer School
Wow what a show. The children still buzzing the next day. Professional, magical and enthralling. Everyone I came into contact with was very curterous and helpful
Thank you very much for the most wonderful experience. We had a super day and that was down to the professionalism of all your staff both on site and in the offices. All the organising on your part was fantastic and for us as a Parents’ Association we had a very relaxed event.
It was great to see the enjoyment in all the children, adults and grandparents faces whilst enjoying the event with my own family.
Thanks again. Great to work with you.
The Mead Primary School
Thank you so much to everyone involved on Saturday – the circus was, as ever, a roaring success. I was actually sorting stuff out during the show itself, so I didn’t manage more than a quick peep inside the tent, but it was enough for me that my husband (not normally known for his outbursts of enthusiasm) came out saying how genuinely impressed he was with the standard of the acts (high praise indeed!), and that my kids were still talking about it at breakfast this morning!
Pilgrims Prep School
What a wonderful way to start our school year!
Our PTA, in collaboration with Happy’s Circus, organised a spectacular circus show for the children and their families to enjoy. From our initial contact with Happy’s Circus all the way through to the Big Top being dismantled in our school field, I cannot fault the organisation and professionalism of this fantastic company; I would highly recommend them without any reservation to anyone looking to provide an exciting event within their school grounds.
Catherine Forrester (Headteacher, New Scotland Hill Primary School and Nursery)
“Happy Circus is an amazing experience for any school! The organisation is excellent and we were able to put on an amazing event for the family, which was hassle free and superb quality. The Happy Circus team are wonderful and they go above and beyond to ensure the school is kept well informed and the event runs efficiently. From the moment they arrive the Circus coming to school created a buzz, and the children loved seeing the big top go up! The show itself is of high quality and the acts perform amazing stunts which defy belief. The chemistry between Happy and Pip was brilliant and all of the family laughed a lot. If you are worried about having the circus come to your school, then don’t be, it’s hassle free, amazing entertainment and the added bonus is you raise loads of money for the school! ”
Headteacher at Ravenscote Junior School
From the first contact to the actual event, we found the staff at Happy’s Circus thoroughly professional and very efficient. Most importantly we made a fantastic profit. We have no problem trusting the company on school property. 100% satisfaction. Thank you. I’d be happy to talk to anyone considering holding an event.
Dear Happy Circus Team,
Happy Circus – Russell Lower School Wednesday 6th June 2016
Following an absolutely superb show on Wednesday, please find below a testimonial
Thank you so much to the staff of Happy Circus who visited us for the first time this year! From the initial correspondence to seeing them off site the day after our show the Happy Circus team were an absolute pleasure to work with.
The processes that Happy’s have in place to ensure your event runs smoothly is absolutely fantastic and removes any stresses of the organiser. With the supporting information and details provided in the support pack we were able to sell out our first performance. The literature issued is clear and provides excellent guidelines for planning a successful event.
The show itself was enjoyed by all who attended, the children were absolutely buzzing with excitement after watching the Big top being set up in the day to being able to sit in the show and watch the wonderful performances by all involved. The noise from the children certainly raised the roof and the parents all commented to say how good the performance was and how nice it was to have something different at the school.
The show was such a success for us that we have planned a returning visit for a two day event to our school in 2018.
It has been a pleasure working with the Happy’s team and we cannot wait to have you back in the future.
A truly fantastic company from simple booking, slick set up and a brilliant show with unique acts. An easy money maker for schools PTA. Thank you Happy’s circus.
Friends of Green Lane School(from Happy’s Circus Facebook Page)
Just a quick note to say thank you for a wonderful event last Monday 11th. Everything was perfect – your guys were extremely helpful, the show was incredible and lots of fun was had despite the torrential rain.
I appreciate their no fuss attitude and attention to detail.
I’m already looking for an excuse to have you back!
Divine Saviour School
A fabulous community event. Almost hassle free for the PTA, we get to enjoy the event with our children instead of always missing out. The staff and performers were lovely. Helpful, professional, well organized. Felt like we were looked after brilliantly. Thank you so much
Dingle Well Infants
We were surprised by how slick and professional the show was! We have had nothing but positive feedback from the people who came, and the school was buzzing the next morning. Lots of people are asking when the Circus will be coming again
Allesley Primary School
Thoroughly enjoyable event – we have never had as many fabulous comments. From start to finish it ran like clockwork – Thank you so much
Hertingfordbury Cowper Primary School
A HUGE thank you to Happy, Pip and the cast for the show last night. I’m sure you are in receipt of these kinds of emails daily. The boys, parents and staff are raving about it and the boys were utterly enthralled throughout the show.
On a personal note, having grown up attending the Hippodrome circus in GY and being a real fan of travelling circus’ and other variations of circus and the school’s own circus heritage, Happy and Pip are head and shoulders above many I have seen. Their material felt sincere and was genuinely funny, they conveyed great affection throughout and the physical comedy was impeccable.
Once again, thank you all, and you Angie, for making it a very easy and enjoyable process.
Sarah Secker-Barker| PA to the Headmaster
More House School
Just a quick thank you to you all as the children and adults had a fantastic time last week, it really was fantastic!
We had two pieces of local news coverage which was great, here is the later;
Many thanks again
We Could not have asked for a more fitting celebration for our Outstanding Ofsted report. We wanted an event that would bring all of our school community together, an event that would please young and old alike. Happy’s Circus were just the ticket! A perfectly timed show filled with all the fun we could wish for… and on our very own school field. Happy’s made it easy for us to plan an event for over 500 people and at a very reasonable price. We have already recommended you to lots of schools in our network. Thank you to everybody who worked so hard to give us such a super event.
Castle Hill Primary School
Dear Angie, Tinc and all the Happy’s Team
Thank you so much for coming to our school last Friday, we had the most incredible evening! What a slick operation you run, from the moment I made an initial phone call to you 18 months ago, to the comprehensive marketing pack and the additional helpful information whenever I called, to the most unbelievable way the Big Top went up within 2 hours!! It was fascinating to watch and a couple of the classes came out to take it all in as clearly there wasn’t much work going on!! All your site crew were courteous and highly efficient.
As for the circus itself, Mr Happy and Pip got the humour spot on for every age group. I really did think that it would be mainly for the little ones and the parents would have to endure a very average show, well, how wrong could I be!! All the audience were transfixed, not only by the most amazing acts, but by the continued frolics of Pip!! The laughter could be heard from outside and certainly everyone enjoyed getting wet by the fire extinguisher and the foam pie on the head of one of our parents was tremendous. Those year 6’s who did attend under duress, absolutely loved it!
What a buzz it has created, I haven’t heard one negative comment and our head teacher said it was the best event we had ever put on, it certainly was the best circus I have been too.
Thank you once again, we will certainly be booking you again.
With very best wishes to all the team.
Chair of the Friends of Hertingfordbury Cowper Primary School
The day went extremely well and with fund matching we managed to raise £4000 for our little village school!
The kids and parents all loved Happy’s Circus and I would like to pass on my thanks to everyone for such a calm and efficient set up and show.
We will certainly be back in touch some time in the future.
Caroline. (St Katherine’s School)
I would like to send a huge “thanks” to you all. It was an amazing evening enjoyed by children and adults alike. The circus was efficient and & friendly. We had brilliant feedback from children & parents and i enclose a letter from a neighbor too. This is our 50th Anniversary year and the circus was the “best” we could ask for to launch our celebrations
Mary Lally – St John Fisher Catholic Primary School
To the Head of St John Fisher School
Thank you very much for sending us a complimentary ticket for last night’s circus performance. We both thoroughly enjoyed the show and it took me back well over 60 years to the time i last went to a circus which was at the Tower Circus in Blackpool.
Perhaps our greatest pleasure was seeing how all the children obviously so much enjoyed the show without the use of computer, mobile phones or I-pads.
Your s Sincerely
Mr & Mrs G Nichols (neighbors of St John Fisher Catholic Primary School
Excellent service from start to finish. Very professional throughout booking process and on the day. The show was fantastic and loved by all who attended. Would have no hesitation in recommending Happys. Thank you for making our fete so special this year.
Thank you for being so responsive with my question and for making it so easy on the day. We only needed to focus on the fair and the circus took care of itself
loved the show again. Thanks very much – looking forward to the next one
Another successful event, very professionally run. Thank you
Abbey Primary school
‘In 2009 I became involved with fundraising for a new Cricket and Community Pavilion on our Recreation ground in Claygate. The recreation ground is used by the Cricket and Football clubs as well as the community at large and this asset is managed by the Claygate Recreation Ground Trust of which I am a Trustee. The CRGT has Charity status and the Trustees are all volunteers.
I had heard that a children’s circus might be a good event that could both raise funds, and involve a large percentage of the Claygate community. Fortunately I was lucky enough to come across Happy’s Circus and the Randelles!
Five years on we have funded and completed the building of a beautiful new £360,000 Pavilion that is enjoyed by all the community.
I owe a large debt of gratitude to Happy’s Circus because they were our first real funding event and brought much needed PR to our community project. Happy’s Circus kicked off the first of many funding events over the next few years. We have now run 4 circuses all of which have sold out (A staggering 600 tickets each year, representing over 10% of the Claygate population!) They became an annual Claygate event, and we will no doubt have them back in the future , when we have recovered our breath!)
The circus itself was hugely entertaining for children and adults alike, the Randelles and their team were brilliant and every year the event went off without a hitch, (apart from the fact that we couldn’t get more than 600 in the circus tent, and some were disappointed when we sold out!)
As I have learnt over the past 5 years, fundraising is not easy, but of the many events that we have run the Circus was the easiest to set up, the easiest to sell, and also raised the most money for our project. Each year the circus raised £4,000 clear profit, and we all had a huge amount of fun in the process.
I love Happy’s Circus, I love the Randelles ….and so do Claygate.
We would really like to than you all for a truly fantastic show. We have had nothing but praise from all the parents and children and from our perspective the whole day was managed so smoothly.
All the performers were brilliant and each child seems to have a different favorite act.
many thanks again, both for the actual day and also the pre planning inforation you provided.
We hope to be able to book you again in the near future.
Our Lady of Lourdes PTA
We had a wonderful time, and as always the company was very professional and well organised
There were a lot of happy, smiling faces at the end of the show.
We are in the process of booking up for 2016.
Marian Vian PTA
Second time we had you and this time for 2 nights. Great as ever. Thank you. We raised £8500
I just wanted to drop you a line and say that we thoroughly enjoyed having Happy’s Circus come in to school. We had an amazing evening, the tent was packed and the show was just fantastic. We have had lots of positive feedback. Thank you for making the entire process from start to finish so organized and easy to follow. Please extend our thanks to the whole team.
The Circus was a truly fantastic event – despite the bad weather! Your staff both in the office and on the team where all without exception so professional and I will ensure that good word is spread locally so hopefully more bookings can be made in the future in this area Thanks You!!!!
We had such a fantastic evening with the Happy Circus on Friday 16th April. They were brilliant! There were SO many smiles that night!
I just wanted to say how professional and efficient the circus team were! Most importantly, there was a HUGE thumbs up from all the kids and even the parents!!! Must admit I laughed a lot with Happy and Pip! My family are still laughing about some it now!! Frozen and Spiderman numbers were also very popular!!
Corpus Christi School, New Malden
Fantastic event and will definitely be booking for a 4th time! Thank you.
Wow -what a fabulous event! I cannot describe to you how much both the children and adults enjoyed the show last week at Begbrook Priamry Academy.
Please pass on our thanks to all of the performers and those behind the scenes. I hope they got as much enjoyment from seeing everyone’s faces as we did as organizers and as parents of the children there.
We have had nothing but great comments from children, teachers and parents so i am sure we will be having you back again and for 2 nights as we are confident we can fill the space.
Sarah Thorpe – on behalf of Begbrook PTFA
2nd time we have had Happy Circus and already have people asking when you are coming back. Ran like clockwork, Stephanie was lovely and very helpful and a pleasure dealing with office too, so helpful.
Melanie Crawley Down C of E school
A fantastic show and the way you set up and took down was incredible. All circus staff were on the ball, polite and helpful – it was a real pleasure and very impressive.
We were very happy with the event the only small thing was we were told that the set up would be half an hour and it took over an hour with the children on the field. This was a minor thing but still worth noting.
