Circus Success

Last Sunday, the Circus came to Wessex as the PTA’s annual fair was under the canvas of the Big Top for the first time. The weather was incredibly kind and the audience laughed, giggled, screamed and occasionally got wet for the performance of slapstick comedy, plate spinning, juggling and all around silliness. It was a real success and with the backdrop of the favourites from previous years – BBQ, Bar, Raffle, Tombola, Glitter Tattoos, Bouncy Castle, etc. great fun was had by all. Well done to the PTA team and everyone who got involved to make the event such a success.

The final figure raised is £2500… well done everyone!

Roll up! Roll up! – Sun 22nd May

The Circus is Coming to Wessex on Sunday 22nd May!

Tickets cost £5 per head and will go on sale on Mon 9th May,  at the school atrium from 8am and at pick up time only until they sell out.

Tickets are now available to extended friends and family not at Wessex (babies in arms won’t need a ticket, but for H&S reasons, buggies won’t be allowed inside the tent).

  • 3 performances for you to choose from:
    1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm
  • Doors will open at 12 noon

Seats aren’t numbered therefore we recommend you arrive at the school at least 1 hr before your selected performance, that should leave you plenty of time to grab a bite and a drink, tackle the giant inflatable assault course and have a go at the tombolas.

The Circus will be instead of the summer fair, so you don’t want to miss out! Also look out for:

  • Colouring Poster competition – coming soon

Helpers get a free burger and a drink!

As usual, we need lots of volunteers to make this wonderful day work so please put the date in your calendar and get in touch (PTA@wessexprimary.org) to let us know if you can lend a hand, even for a short shift, it all helps!
