Sheffield business Centres give the big top a helping hand

Two Sheffield industrial parks are proud to be sponsoring a very special circus which rolls into town soon.

Bizspace’s Baltic Works on Effingham Road and Cricket Inn Industrial Estate on Derwent Street, have donated tickets for vulnerable children and their families to attend Circus Starr. 

The big top comes to Don Valley Bowl on May 1.  It boasts a world class troupe of artistes including internationally acclaimed Mexican clown Chico Rico and the gravity defying El Moussati troupe with their jaw-dropping act on the “Wheel of Death”.

Now in its 29th year, Circus Starr is dedicated to bringing the magic of the circus to vulnerable children.  It asks for the support of local businesses throughout its UK tour, and allocates the free tickets which are donated to children and their families through community groups.

Manager of the two business centres, Connor Johnson, said: “We are delighted to lend our support to a fantastic project that offers children from the Sheffield area a wonderful experience to remember for the rest of their lives.”

Back by popular demand on this year’s tour will be the acrobatic high jinks of the Serik brothers on Chinese pole and straps.  Other highlights include the captivating balance and dexterity of Las Chicas Morales on Rolling Globes and aerial contortionist Romy Bauer performs an enchanting act performed in a suspended giant globe high in the Big Top.

Neville Wilson, one of Circus Starr’s directors, said: “We’re really grateful to Bizspace and all our sponsors who help us make a difference to young people and their families.  We work hard to put on a spectacular and unforgettable show and it’s down to local businesses to help as many people as possible enjoy the magic of the big top.”

Sales and marketing director at Bizspace, Emma Long, said: “We aim to support the communities around our business centres and industrial parks as much as possible.  Circus Starr is such a unique project and we’re proud to lend a hand to bring enjoyment to so many families.”

Bizspace specialises in helping start-ups and small businesses launch and develop, offering affordable pricing and a simple, flexible licence agreement.  For more information visit
