Hey my lovelies 👋
So Ellie turned 13 this year and as a super cool mumma you know I had the coolest present ever!- Diversity ignite tickets!!
Now what can be better than a diversity show?-A circus diversity show! It’s no secret we spent a lot of time with our circus family this summer, so what better than to spend some more before they leave!
For as long as I can remember Ellie has loved Diversity, the music, the dancing- the whole package! She was a toddler when they won Britain s got talent but she has loved them ever since. Every magazine they were in- we brought it! Every poster, picture, you name it- we have it! So this literally was the perfect present!
We also love Gandeys Circus! We spend every summer at Butlin’s (you made of heard🙄😉) so in turn we see them every year, god knows how many times! We never get bored of seeing amazing people doing what they love and amazing us every single time! (I know I go on about them ALOT but i promise you, they aren’t paying me😜😂)
So back to the show:-
We went to the beautiful Blaise Castle Estate in Bristol. Perfect distance for us and it fell on her birthday weekend. We arrived at this ‘ huge’, ‘beautiful’- did I mention it was big?- circus tent and it was sooo exciting!(yes even as a 33year old mumma)! The pictures will show you the pure excitement on Ellie & lexi’s faces😬
We queued very excitedly for 3 hours(crazy I know but we wanted good seats) and believe me it was worth every second of the wait!
Inside we go, amazing front row seats-perks of waiting😜 perfect time to grab some of our friends for pics before the show!
The charming, hilarious, beautiful Andreea the Clown.
And no trip is ever complete without the handsome, charming Said Debbach!
The shows starting-😳 OMG it’s Ashley Banjo! For a split second I completely forgot my very embarrassed daughter was sat next to me-(now frowning I might add)I may have wolf-whistled a tad too loudly🤦🏻♀️and she told me to “STOP MUM!” At which point I felt I had to kindly remind her of who was in charge here🤷🏻♀️😂
The greatest showman in every sense, Ashley directs this amazing, dance/circus extravaganza with pure ease. The magic tricks, the Mini- yes an actual car!-the “edge of your seat” straight jacket escapes! This show is literally spectacular from start to finish! Writing about it(ironically this is a blog🙄) doesn’t do it justice!
The show is everything you would expect from Diversity- insanely amazing!
The icing on the cake for us was, of course,seeing our Colombian friends, who have become more like family to us- The amazing Gerlings!!!! I’m not sure who was more excited if I’m honest🤔 Ellie loves the whole circus lifestyle, my favourite is definitely these guys and lexi? Well she doesn’t care for anyone or anything unless he’s called Jair💙😂🙈 These 2 have built such an amazing bond since the beginning of summer which will last forever👌🏻
We watched behind shielded eyes whilst our friends do their incredible double wheel of death. The gasps, the screams and the wolf whistling (not me this time😜)the pure professionalism never fails to impress us and it certainly does show in this unbelievable dance/circus spectacular!
so on conclusion- do you?
