See what people are saying about the show









My  Whanau and I would like to give a huge thank you to all who made it possible for my whanau of six to be able to attend the amazing kids day out show on the 7th of April.

We were truly overjoyed with the performers and the performance as it was a rare opportunity for us as a family to enjoy a night out together.

We are forever grateful for the experience and hope others are given the same opportunity in the future. Thank you for making it possible for our family to attend the performance of amazing circus acts.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to whoever funded the two tickets for myself and my 5.5 year old son to attend.  They were given to us by my son's school, Tauriko School.

My son absolutely loved it, his favourite act being Roro the clown.  Considering he's never seen a clown act before, it was top notch!  Amazing skill.  He's also a huge magic fan, so Magic Mike was a hit with him too.  I personally really enjoyed Byron Hutton's juggling, having never seen a fully choreographed act to music before.  Quite an exciting night out for my son, especially as we seldom go anywhere in the evening.  And I really appreciate all the artists being available for autographs afterwards.  My son has learnt all their names, going over his little autograph postcard every morning for the past week or so.  Super cute.

I saw some friends of ours at the show too, who has 3 daughters, and it was wonderful to see one of them already trying to copy Sarah Kidston's moves (the contortionist), before we'd even left the auditorium.  What a wonderful night for kids! 

Thank you so much for your generosity.  It was a first for us and we really did appreciate it all -  the tickets, a night out for my son and I, the high level of performance from the artists.

Thank you again

Thank you so much for the show I really appreciate you guys, who made it happen. Before the show had ended I was pick to be magic mikes assistant, who gave me a red rose at the end of his part. Can’t wait till next year.(Name Removed)

Just a note to thank all the local businesses who kindly sponsored the 2018 Heart Kids Day out Variety Show in Christchurch. My two young daughters had a wonderful time, and it was priceless to see our eldest in particular laugh at the clown and be surprised by the magician. These memories are so precious to us a family, and your generosity has been deeply appreciated, thank you.

On behalf of the Christchurch Family @ Foster care Association we would like to thank you and the firms who so kindly donated these tickets, it was a great afternoon and i know the children enjoyed every minute of it.

On behalf of myself and my Family, especially my 8 yr old, special needs son Riki, I would like to thank you very much for the show you Guys put on in Timaru last Sunday past at the Girls High School. My Son’s ability or lack-of to concentrate on anything for any long periods of time is a challenge and makes for attending shows and movies nigh on impossible. He did however make it through this show and at times had a good belly laugh or was taken by what he saw. The Juggler and the Clown in particular were both very attention getting and excellent,….they all were. He has a very rare disorder that will not allow him to stay focused for very long however the motion of the juggler and the slap-stick, calamitous nature of the clown (falling off his Bikes etc) kept him laughing and entertained most of the time!

This evening my grandson and i attended the show in Greymouth. It was really enjoyable, and a delight to see expressions on grandsons face. Many thanks to the acts and a big thank you to the sponsors.

Thank you so very much for a wonderful night of entertainment at the Nelson College..

I took my grandson which was a treat for him as he never gets to go anywhere or do anything except go to school.

He lives with me and for a lot of people life is a bit tough.

So it was great to be able to go together and have a laugh and make a memory. To all the businesses who paid for our tickets..

Thank you very much

A big ‘thank you’ to the companies and businesses that donated to this wonderful show!

Our daughter is 20 years old.  She has autism, OCD, epilepsy and an intellectual disability.  It was great to be able to take her to see something different and that she would enjoy without feeling too different from others.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of the sponsors who have made Heart Kids Day Out Variety Show 2018 possible!  We have 3 boys, 3, 5 and 6 and they absolutely LOVED the show!  Mr 5 loves magic, and hasn't stopped talking about the tricks that Magic Mike performed!  Mr 6 thought Ro Ro the clown was hilarious!  and Mr 3 clapped and cheered like I've never seen him do before!!  Even us adults were thoroughly entertained, and we feel very grateful, and privileged to have been invited to a show like this!  Thank you so much for your generosity and support of this great variety show.  I'm sure there will be talk of the show for a long time.  The autographs are proudly displayed in their rooms.

Thank you!!!

Many many thanks for donating the tickets to Patutahi School.

"I had a fun time. The magicians and all of  the stars are amazingly talented! My whole family enjoyed the afternoon. Eleven of my family went.  We wouldn't have been able to afford to go without the free tickets.  Thank you."

A number of our children attended the show at the YMCA in Gisborne yesterday.  They were accompanied by parents and I believe a grandfather went to.

I have had spectacular feedback about the show from parents and children.

Thank you most sincerely for the free tickets.  I was pleasantly surprised how many children went!  It was quite an event with them getting dressed up in best clothes for the occasion.

It was indeed a very memorable occasion for our children and they will be very keen to go again next year.

A highlight was having one of our boys selected to go on stage.. however that was just one highlight!

Please convey my thanks and appreciation to everyone involved with this wonderful variety show.  

We wish to thank you for the 2 complimentry tickets we  received for the show held at the Whakatane War Memorial hall .We would also like to acknowledge the businesses who sponser the show and make it possible for our children to enjoy,  listening to the childrens applause said it all, the performers were great. For me as a greatgran it made my day and it was worth the time to spend with my greatgran daughter as she turned 10 that day and had no idea she was being taken out she loved her birthday present last of all thanks to the teachers at our Ashbrook Primary School Wellington Street Opotiki for choosing her and many others that were there from our school.

On behalf of my son I want to thank you you all sincerely for your generous support of this great cause.

As a parent of a child with special needs I get accustomed to battling with the system and making sure he gets what he needs to thrive and enjoy life. It can be a struggle since the world is not made for people like my son Daniel. It makes the kidsdaysout all the more special because there are people out there willing to support us and help us in our daily struggle.

Daniel finds making and keeping friends especially difficult and so we, as his parents, have to fulfill this role alongside our other parenting duties. Making sure Daniels day is filled with some fun is so important but not always easy to achieve. I want to thank you all for giving Daniel the opportunity of forgetting all his issues and problems for 75 minutes last Easter Monday and providing the means for him to laugh out loud to Mr Man and his performers.

We really do appreciate you giving up some of your hard earned profit to make a difference. Thank you so much.
