Are you looking to attract more people to your festival and make it stand out from the rest?

Organising a festival? You've probably considered at least one of these things by now:

  • We'd like to increase the number of people we attract to our festival each year.

  • Our visitors expect a varied entertainment program for the whole family, even if it rains.

  • We want to offer exciting attractions all over the festival, not just on the main stage.

  • Our festival has a high footfall, so we need atrractions which can entertain large audiences without blocking access or causing a health and safety hazard.

  • We'll be working to a tight schedule, so it is important our acts are reliable and on time.

Sounds like you? Then you're in the right place and I can probably help in more ways than one.

Family Audiences:

It’s important to be able to entertain young children, whilst also amusing and engaging the parents and older siblings alike. 

My main stage show is flexible and ideal for all ages. It lasts between 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the itinerary of the day.

I am able to perform for a captive audience, or attract a large crowd from scratch. 

Main stage & roaming entertainment

Aside from being able to keep the entire family interested and entertained, you’ll need a performer with a flexible act, able to perform in multiple locations throughout the day.

My roaming show is easily portable. That way, I can move around, making audiences laugh, clap and cheer with amazement across the entire festival, parallel to the main stage program.

This also allows me to seek out shady areas so that children aren’t exposed to the sun for long periods of time without realising it.

 

 Roaming entertainment allows shows to be performed wherever needed.

if the audience stays, so do I.

No doubt, if you're organising an outdoor event you will be keeping a nervous eye on the weather. Due to my time as a Covent Garden street performer, I'm used to performing in bad weather, even rain.

Simply put, if the audience stays, so do I. 

Should the weather be so bad a performance can't be continued, I can adapt my show for a more sheltered environment, such as a marquee or a last minute indoor venue.

I bring a portable wireless sound system, so I'm able to set up my show anywhere without the need for a power source.


So why me?

I began my carreer as a street entertainer in Covent Garden. Here, I spent 10 years honing my skills in attracting, controlling and holding crowds for anything up to an hour at a time, making them laugh and forget everything else around them.

I have over 8 years experience performing at festivals, including the prestigeous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and I've been booked every year to perform at the world-class Goodwood Events since 2011.
