About SEND Session

The Chicken Circus is flapping its way to Brighton’s Memorial Hall, 3 Old London Road, Patcham, BN1 8XR on 20 and 21 May 2023. 

A sensory adaptation of the Animal Tales children’s story by the late Terry Jones, Chicken Circus is the colourful tale of Mr Fox who steals chickens so he can train them as circus performers.   

The Makaton Friendly show is an inclusive, high energy, interactive sensory performance written especially for a special needs and disabilities (SEND) audience.  A hilarious and very popular show using bright sets, puppetry, music, sensory props and costumes that stimulate and encourage participation. 


The event is free ticketed. You can book a ticket online here or  call the box office on 01273 917 272 (opening hours at present 14.00-17.00 Tuesday to Friday)
