Full Hearts Full Tummies
Give the gift of wonder

Every December we make available 600 tickets for £1 each to local families with young children facing extreme challenges. They attend our special Christmas production, this year it’s the much loved smash hit The Gruffalo, and enjoy a delicious hot lunch with games and activities.

Despite huge investment in the area in the lead up to and following the Olympics, over a third of children are still growing up in poverty and their families face food scarcity, unemployment, or very inadequate housing. During winter many families are unable to provide regular hot meals for their children.

We want to give these families an opportunity to come together, park their worries, socialise and share a joyous experience with their children. To make the season a magical one for the children and families of Newham, we ask for donations to raise £12,000 each year.

Please consider donating to Full Hearts Full Tummies! Your support will make some wonderful childhood memories, introduce children to the theatre, fuel young imaginations and fill tummies.

We welcome support from everyone - individuals, trusts, businesses, large and small, including sponsorship and financial support, volunteering, pro-bono and support in kind.

We’d be delighted to hear from you! Contact Mia, Development Manager via email: mia@stratford-circus.com if you'd like to further support Full Hearts Full Tummies.

It is more than I dream today. The people are excellent. I have no words. They give me so much respect and care with love. I will remember for the rest of my life.
