A CIRCUS which gears its productions towards disabled and vulnerable children is in Keighley next week.

Circus Starr will be performing at Victoria Hall on Wednesday (June 26), at 4.45pm and 7pm.

The not-for-profit organisation says that due to "rising costs and logistical challenges" it is unable to stage its usual Big Top shows this year, but that it was "proud" to be able to bring its productions indoors.

Circus Starr adapts its events to suit audiences by lowering the volume, toning down the lights, providing sensory packs and offering free tickets.

Ringmistress Mariska Gandey will be joined on stage by Brazilian clown Lukinha, and there will be acrobatic skills from Fingers Crossed!

Circus Starr fundraising director, Michelle Crossley, says: "We love sharing our magical art form with those who would usually miss out. I am so happy that we can still stage a fabulous show for the community, despite the challenges we are currently facing. Thank you so much to all the businesses that have given their support and helped us continue our valuable work."
