Summer fun in Chiswick

Summer is finally here - hurrah! And long may that sunshine continue, as we've had a jam-packed calendar of events so far this season. One of our highlights was a family fun day in Chiswick, which was months in the making. But it was all worth it in the end as thousands descended on Chiswick House and Grounds to enjoy a day with Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol.

Spiderman, Batman, Elsa, Anna and our animatronic dinosaur Rex roamed amongst the guests, offering hugs and photo opportunities throughout the day. And our stilt walking Princess Belle and Princess Ariel were a hit with all the family.

Our two face painters had a queue as long as your arm all day, offering traditional and glitter designs. It's no surprise that comic and Frozen artwork is still hugely popular.

Our awesome Samba drumming band got everyone's hips wiggling, and even handed drum sticks out to children so that they could get involved in the music. And of course our striking Rio girls encouraged Mums, Dads and children alike to shake and shimmy, both around the grounds and on stage. Vanessa Feltz was in attendance with her family, and commented, 'gosh, don't you girls look lovely'!

Our compere Abi kept things ship-shape on stage, leading the 'dinosaur dance' that got children two-stepping and twirling around, in return for lollipops of course. And Spiderman left a lasting impression with a hand balance show that saw him bending, splitting and posing upside down like he was the genuine article.

Big cat girls manned the craft area throughout the day, and led storytelling sessions where they shared tales of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The children were a credit to their families, and all our staff had a smashing day.

Summer ball in the Gloucestershire countryside

We can't think of a better time of year to throw a countryside ball, so we were delighted to be back performing for one of our favourite clients at their annual bash. This year they opted for a vintage circus style marquee on the grounds of stunning Bredon School. Its tranquil location and imposing architecture made the view from the marquee rather picturesque for our performers.

As guests approached they were greeted by our muscle-clad strongman, and our hostess dressed as a fox; this was by special request from our customer, and the secret the partygoers didn't yet know, was that our foxy lady would later perform a Burlesque tease.

Guests were seated for dinner and treated to a sensational contortion show atop a giant rotating mirrorball. Spotlights were directed straight onto the prop to ensure the mirrorball threw light all across the marquee.

One rather lucky gentleman was then pulled up on stage by our foxy lady who teased him for a short while before cheekily ejecting him so that she could perform her bespoke fox themed Burlesque tease.

And as sunset neared, our muscular fire duo took pride of place in front of the mansion, and performed with flame throwers, dragon staff and difficult vapour-transfer tricks that only a handful of UK artists are able to perform. This crowd have booked our fire performers for three consecutive years so we have to up the ante year after year to ensure we still command the rapturous applause of the previous event. Safe to say, we had this one in the bag!

Until next year, guys!
