Our Aim

Balloon Circus is a charity that brings uplifting entertainment to disadvantaged children encouraging creative play in a nurturing yet stimulating environment.  The workshops provide the children with opportunities to learn new skills through balloons and interactive circus sessions. We want to awaken the inner performer and empower the children to sharpen their physical, mental, and social skills. As experienced, conscientious and talented performers we want to share our knowledge and skills to affect social change.
Balloon Circus inspires smiles and laughter through a memorable and exciting experience.

What We Achieve

Balloon Circus works directly with underprivileged children at a grass roots level. We reach as many children as possible to provide them with something that can be forgotten in the face of adversity – a child’s right to play.
We work along side other charities, complimenting the amazing work already taking place.
In addition to providing a fun, educational day we leave a circus pack in each place for the children to enjoy after we leave.

Balloon Circus

Balloon Circus gathers together the passions and skills of its entertainers into an exciting and educational experience for children in impoverished situations. 

When you lose your parents as a child, you are indoctrinated into a club, you re taken into life’s severest confidence. You are undeceived .

Hilary Thayer Hamann, Anthropology of an American Girl

Orphanages are the only places that ever left me feeling empty and full at the same time.

John M. Simmons

It seemed like an unachievable goal for one person to bring sunshine to one hundred little faces when what they need is a mother apiece.

Jean Webster
