Les Cunningham Day of Caring

Write a note, share a kind word, hug those you love a little tighter - little ways to acknowledge the blessings we have in our lives.

Rob & Miss Jane
Rob and Miss Jane first met when they shared a stage at the 2012 World Expo in South Korea.

The result is a dynamic, family-friendly show that entertains all ages. Behind their slapstick shenanigans are years of hard work and promotion. Rob has spent years enhancing social awareness of developing accessible and engaging circus theatre throughout the Balkans and Afghanistan.
