Festive Excitement Part IV: The Circus Christmas Bazaar

Christmas Bazaar BlogOn Tuesday 20th December we will be hosting our very own Christmas Bazaar at The Circus Cafe. Beginning at 5pm we will be selling handicrafts designed and created by members of the Circus team, including cosmetic/travel bags with different motifs (including Berlin and the Circus), as well as loop scarves, notebooks and homemade pralines.

There will also be soup, cake and glühwein, all of which will be “sold” on a donation basis, to raise money for MULTITUDE, the refugee rights and support organisation here in Berlin that the Circus has been supporting recently, such as through the fleamarket donation of our piles and piles of lost and found. Multitude’s idea is to visit and plan activities with the refugees, to help take their minds away from what can be an incredibly negative process that they have to deal with, and build a multicultural exchange between the refugees and the wider German society. The activities include German lessons, cooking and watching movies together, playing with the children, organising picnics in the park or games of basketball.

From 7pm Lady Gaby will be hosting a spoken word event, featuring Christmas Stories from around the world. The four performers will use stories, poetry and song to tell their very own yuletide tales. So come and join us next Tuesday for a couple of festive hours, buy some homemade presents for loved ones, help raise money for a very important organisation, and listen to expat tales of Christmas past to help get you in the holiday spirit. It’s going to be fun…
