Roll Up! Roll Up! For the Greatest Show at Henleigh Hall

Henleigh Hall, Sheffield, Circus

Step right up and get your tickets! The circus has arrived at Henleigh Hall Care Home. The home showcased their home-grown talent by dressing up and putting on the Laughter and Sunshine circus show with the aim of making the residents laugh until their stomachs hurt.

In the lead-up to the big show, the residents helped the team dress the home up like a circus tent, they put up handmade posters and the countdown to the big day began.

Excitement filled the home as the team practiced their performances and worked hard to get their costumes sorted in time for opening night.

There was a strong line-up of acts for the night, which was hosted by our RingMaster Kat, everyone was kept on the edge of their seats and there were smiley-faced residents throughout the audience! The line-up was as follows…

  • The Opening Act: Fortune Teller
  • The Bearded Lady
  • The Siamese Twins
  • The Tall Lady
  • The Tattooed Lady
  • World’s Strongest Man
  • Ventriloquist Act
  • A Magic Show
  • Fire Ball Lady
  • The Tightrope Runner
  • And last but not least The Clowns!

Residents were amazed, shocked and shared plenty of laughs as an array of acts performed. To get the complete experience, residents each had their own tickets that were checked at the door and during the show, everyone enjoyed popcorn and candyfloss!

As the curtains closed, the acts took a bow and the residents clapped and cheered – it was a marvellous night to remember full of magic and adventure.
