East Coast Truckers Charity

Making Children Smile!

Annual Trip to the Circus!

All children on our database are invited to join us on a trip to the circus!

We will be attending the last matinee performance of the Hippodrome's Christmas Spectacular on Sunday, 6th January 2019.

You can see what awaits us here:

Unfortunately, the venue is a historic building and cannot accommodate a sufficient number of wheelchairs. We are also unable to store wheelchairs due to the lack of space and the danger of blocking fire exits.

As a result of these serious Health & Safety issues we regret that this outing will NOT be available to wheelchair dependent users.

We are sorry if this precludes your child attending, but we look forward to seeing you at other events throughout the year.

Please find attached below a link to the application form. Please download, fill in and send this form back to our Child Liaison Officer as soon as possible.

A confirmation email will be sent to you with your booking details prior the event. Please print and bring that document with you in order to book in and enter the Hippodrome Circus. If you do not have this document you risk losing your booking.

East Coast Truckers will purchase the ticket for the child on our database, plus one carer if the child needs to be accompanied. Additional tickets for adults & siblings are available at the cost of £10 each. Payment for additional tickets should accompany the booking form.

Unless your child requires medication during the outing, or wears incontinent slips/sanitary wear, they can be cared for by a member of ECTC during the outing if you wish for them to attend on their own.


Coaches will be provided from County Hall, Martineau Lane, Norwich NR1 2DH. They will be leaving at 12:15 prompt. Please book in with the Child Liaison Team who will be there from 11:45. The coach will return to County Hall at around 16:30.

Places will be reserved on a first come first served basis.
If you wish to travel directly to Great Yarmouth we ask you to check in with us on Marine Parade outside the Flamingo amusements by 12:45 and if you are leaving your child with us, please pick up from the foyer of the Hippodrome at 15:30.
An ice cream is provided during the interval but we are not providing food on this outing. You may wish to provide your child with a snack they can eat at the circus. Alternatively, Popcorn, Pick ‘n Mix, confectionary and drinks are available to purchase at the circus. Please ensure any drinks are in resealable containers.

So, if you wish to attend, please complete the application form below and return it to our Child Liaison Officer.
