How I did it: I am subscribed to Groupon, and got an e-mail for a cheap offer on grandstand tickets which was lucky because I didn't even know they were local! H had wanted to go too so I called an asked if I could use the voucher for these. I couldn't but managed to get cheaper ringside seats that were accessible :D
We got a train and taxi there and a taxi back and the whole experience was wonderful! The acts were spectacular and we loved it: a very family friendly show especially for any big kids out there :D Read how I did it… 1 month ago
Booked Moscow State Circus in Preston for Friday! Since they haven’t got wheelchair access anywhere else we get RINGSIDE SEATS! GARGH SUper excited!
Not overly sure how I feel about the title of “carer” but part and parcel of it!
SO VERY EXCITED! 1 month ago

It wasn’t the circus experience I had always dreamed of. It was great for a modern day I guess but I’ve grown up seeing creepy skulky drunk clowns and side shows and oodles of animals doing crazy tricks. On the other hand I probably would have walked out if I had seen something like that.
There was an elephant and 2 bears in the show. The dancing elephant was great but the bears made me so sad. They rode bikes and motorcycles and walked on balance beams. I kept thinking about how unnatural it was for them to wear clothes and be on leashes walking around like people. What did they have to do to them to get them to learn those tricks? How many times did they crash and get hurt learning it? They belong out in nature not on display pretending to be people.
I think about how much seeing many animals like that would have effected me and if circuses hadn’t gone all PC I’d have probably freaked out over the side show too. Anyway, I went, I ate cotton candy, and my daughter wants to join this new pc circus when she grows up. I wish the acrobats would have flown like they do in circuses in other countries. That’s really what I wanted to see. 14 months ago
Did this with Elena Bianca and Aundrea…And even though it started out bad due to the Alamodomes poor customer service I still ended up having a great time… 20 months ago
