Travelling and working as an individual artist, street entertainer and circus performer and whilst also being part of the Saltimbanquis de Sanvi, a spanish street circus collective, I gained invaluable experience performing over the years to thousands & thousands of people throughout Spain, Central America and the UK.
My Fire-Show brings a sense of danger, excitement and comedy to both adults and children alike all brought to you through my hispanic alter-ego Juan Carlos Bourbon de Zumaraga de Changfuego. Over the last 25 years I have performed at a wide variety of events, including Private Parties, Weddings, Festivals, Carnivals, Nightclubs, Fetes, Processions, Openings, Launches and Balls. The 'Nice Words' page is testament to that. The show honed over the last 20 years will guarantee that up to 1000 people have a really funny, inclusive, exciting and completely unique half hour to 35 minutes of entertainment. It includes a combination of :-
Glow in the dark Diabolo (100ft throws)
Swinging Fire chains
Ninja fire staff
Unicycling - small or 5ft ( terrain dependent)
If however a show doesn't suit your event, I also offer a mix n mingle service. Alongside these skills, I also run workshops for schools, clubs, and individual groups. See workshop details on the My workshops page.
THE BORING BIT!
Please be aware that my fireshow is an outdoors show and I will need a minimum space of 7m x 5m to perform in. This space will need to be kept clear before the show as I need 30 minutes to set up. Apart from that you don’t need to provide me with anything else.
The show is as safe as can be Fire, 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 £5 million. For workshops I have a fully enhanced DBS.
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 that doesn’t mean the show can’t go on. I’ve performed in every type of British weather and I've been beaten by it only once.
I cover most of the country I’m based in The Peak District (centre of the country) which means everywhere in the UK (within reason!) is accessible. I do charge for my travel costs outside of a 25-mile range of Matlock, but this is strictly on an actual cost basis and I make no profit from this charge.
No Risk Money Back Guarantee
Because I have performed my Fire Show in front of so many audiences I am confident that you will love it. However, if for some reason you are not satisfied with my performance then I will return your money.
This means you can make your booking safe in the knowledge that there is no financial risk to you and I know that I had better deliver a great show!
(Please Note: The only small caveat is that (i) if the weather disrupts/affects the show then this guarantee is revised accordingly and (ii) travel expenses are non-refundable.)
I charge from £300 for my Fire Show.
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 or BACS transfer.
If you are wondering why I am cheaper than some other performers the reason is simple. I market independently through my website and word-of-mouth, which helps keep down the cost to you.
When you’re ready, it’s easy to get in touch You can email me via firstname.lastname@example.org or call me direct on 07908 685655.
