Circus Sensibleaccordian title

When the star act doesn't turn up. The Sensible Brothers are left to save the show using only what they can pinch from their Travelling kitchen. A set of scary chefs knives, cans of pop, cooking utensils and a custard pie mixed with Slapstick comedy, Circus Tricks, Magic and Silliness are guaranteed to make a fun show for all ages. Will the Sensible Brothers save the day? Or will it be a recipe for disaster?!

Face Paintingaccordian title

Face Painting is a very popular activity for all ages, but especially for the kids!  About Faces offer full faces, eye designs, and hand or arm designs.  Face paint is water based and easily removed with soap and water.

Jackie & Tracy of About Faces have been face painting professionally for over 15 years, and will happily add some colour and sparkle to your child's day with their beautiful and fun designs.  They only use the highest quality products specifically designed for use on the Face & Body.
