Welcome to The Great Kiwi Circus

This year The Great Kiwi Circus will be coming to a stage near you.


In 2022 The Going Bananas Show welcomed our new show - The Great Kiwi Circus. Grounded by our fantastically funny Ring Master and presenting different circus acts that will change each year. We are continuing to bring the circus to 27 locations across New Zealand this year.


The Great Kiwi Circus Brings the Magic of a Live Circus Show

The Great Kiwi Circus strives to bring the magic of the circus to regional towns and cities, and watch the excitement in the eyes of the audience light up as they experience something that only a live stage show can bring.

The Great Kiwi Circus is a fun packed 90-minute show to suit special needs and disadvantaged children in the community but we want to bring the thrill and excitement of the circus on to stages all over New Zealand.

We have been supporting the Brain Injured Children Trust for over 8 years

The Brain Injured Children Trust operates on the belief that scientific evidence demonstrates an enormous capacity for recovery of dormant cells exists in the human brain after a brain injury. We encourage this recovery through our vision: ‘To Inspire Brain Injured Children And Their Families Living In Our Community’ Achieve Results Life Dreams

Our members have shown positive proven results using Neuro-Developmental Therapy and other physical and mental activities. We are very excited about their future and see their community inclusion as a benefit to all. The trust provides financial contributions towards Neuro-Developmental Therapy Advice; Resources & Equipment; Educational/Technical Requirements; Mobility Assistive Equipment; Crisis Support; Sporting/Recreational Needs and Support of Parents/Caregivers. These needs are comprehensive and ongoing, most well beyond the families financial means.

It is every good parent’s wish to see their child reach their full potential, whatever that may be, and it is no different for those with a brain injured child.
