Does your upcoming event need a juggler or fire-eater to help keep your guests entertained?
Maybe you’re planning an Opening; a Launch; a Wedding; a Charity Ball; a Carnival; a Fireworks Display, a Fete, or a Nightclub event?
Whatever it is, you’re going to want to make sure everyone who attends has the best possible time and that means keeping them entertained either as a central focus or in between the main events.
Juggling has been around for centuries and yet people are still endlessly fascinated by it. The dazzling tricks consistently entertain, thrill and captivate an audience.
The right entertainer can help your event be memorable for all the right reasons. That’s where I come in.
My expertise is keeping crowds and queues of people happy.
I can do this in a variety of ways:
· “Mixing and mingling” with your guests
· Entertaining people waiting in the queue
· Welcoming guests as they arrive
· Putting on impromptu or planned shows
Whatever you need from me I can happily do. In fact, I can be as flexible as you want.
Choose from a wide variety of skills
I specialise in:
· Club juggling
· “Ninja” staff routine (think Darth Maul from Star Wars!)
· Diabolo (100ft throws & catch!)
· Ball juggling
· Balancing tricks (human seal)
· Plate spinning
(You can see examples of me performing each of the above on the “Action shots” page.
I’m completely self-sufficient so all you need to provide is the space for me to perform.
I also offer a wonderful Kids’ Workshop that teaches circus skills to children aged 4 and above. If you feel this is something that would add to your event you can learn more by visiting the “Circus Skills workshop” page.
Or why not consider my exciting Fire Show
If you want a touch of real excitement at your event then a Fire Show could be just what you’re looking for. Fire provides a thrilling spectacle that your guests will remember long after they leave.
My Fire Show consists of:
· Juggling Fire-Clubs
· Fire staff tricks
· Spinning Fire Chains / Poi
· Fire Eating
· and Body Burning!
I can perform for up to 25 minutes at a time if you want a complete show and can repeat this several times if needed. I can also perform equally impressive fire juggling tricks throughout the event, separate to an actual show.
If you want to see me in action please visit the "Action shots” page.
My Fire Show is best suited to the outdoors but there are occasions when it can be performed indoors. I am able to risk assess over the phone and will be happy to discuss your needs.
I do not offer firework or pyrotechnic displays as part of my show. However, my fire-juggling skills are an ideal accompaniment to any fireworks displays you might be holding and really help to get the crowd in the right mood.
Your guests will be as safe as can be
Juggling obviously has an element of danger to it, but after doing so many performances I pride myself on taking every precaution to avoid accidents. The safety of your guests is my number one priority. And, of course, I am fully insured with public liability insurance of £2 million.
You get the benefit of 20 years of experience
Because I’ve done this for so many years, both in the UK and Europe, you will be getting someone who is both reliable and able to adapt to any situation.
I can work in any sized venue or space. I’ll also arrive when you want me to and will always make sure I am there in time to set up.
My style is friendly and inclusive and I pride myself on being able to work well with any group of people.
It’s worth noting that I am not a clown. Instead, I dress either in top hat, pinstripe waistcoat, black shirt, and black trousers or as a nomadic time travelling pirate (see 'Action shots' ) depending on the situation.
Come rain or shine I will keep your guests smiling!
Obviously, the one thing you can’t control at any event is the weather. But if it’s raining and people are outside for any reason, then it’s even more important that you have someone to entertain them.
I’ve performed in every type of weather and it’s never beaten me yet.
I cover most of the country
I’m based in Derby which means everywhere in the UK (within reason!) is accessible. I do charge for my travel costs outside of a 25-mile range of Derby, but this is strictly on an actual cost basis and I make no profit from this charge.
My prices start from £175 for 1hr 15min for a mix n mingle walkabout and £225 for the dramatic crowd-pleasing 25 minute street-style fire show performance.
Because the events I am booked for vary so much, I can only give you an exact quote after you contact me. Hopefully, though, this will at least give you a sense of what I charge.
A 10% deposit will secure your booking and give you the reassurance that I won’t accept another booking for the same day as your event. And, of course, because reputation is everything in this business, you can be assured that your deposit is safe!
The easiest way to pay the deposit is via a BACS transfer, although you can also choose to pay by cheque (details available when you make your booking).
The final payment will need to be made on the day of the event by cheque.
Please Note: For certain events a Cancellation Fee will apply. For more information please contact me directly.
If you are wondering why I am cheaper than some other performers the reason is simple. I operate independently through my website and word-of-mouth, which helps keep down the cost to you.
