Fossett’s, Ireland’s National Circus, has chosen Irish Autism Action as charity partners to work with over the festive season this year, to raise money for this very special cause, for the four week run of Dublin’s Christmas Circus! For every ticket sold, €1 will go towards the charity!
Fossett’s Circus is staging the festive family treat at Dublin’s Royal Hospital Kilmainham from now until Sunday, January 6th 2013.
Marion Fossett and IAA Patron Keith Duffy were joint Ringmasters supporting the launch of the special fundraising drive,, encouraging people to check out the Fossett’s website for details and to support in whatever way they can – www.fossettscircus.com.
Dublin has joined cities around the world such as London, Amsterdam and New York that hold a city based circus in collaboration with iconic traditional family based services involved.
Entrance to the Christmas Circus at the Royal Hospital is from €7.50 and can be bought in Arnotts or booked on www.livingsocial.com or www.fossettscircus.com , where all details about show times are listed. Christmas outings and school tours can also be booked, with more detail on the website or the group booking information line 085-1351744.
The decision to locate the Christmas Circus in the beautiful Royal Hospital parklands in Kilmainham is to add to the magical Christmas atmosphere, and make the venue easily accessible, not just to city residents, but to the entire country, Charles O’Brien of Fossett’s Circus adds.
“The Royal Hospital Kilmainham is a charming venue, with easy access on the nearby mainline and local transport systems. Fossett’s striking, fully heated Big Top has graced the RHK Parklands at Christmas for many years now, and this year, with your help, we plan to make a magical Irish Christmas memory for families and support Irish Autism Action while doing so.”
