Super 60th on a private fort

Our client Deborah threw a smashing Bond themed celebration for her husband's 60th birthday. And what better venue than the luxurious Spitbank Fort in the Solent? This outstanding location offers complete privacy, helicopter drop off's, a la carte dining, rooftop hot tubs and fire pits, and it was all hired exclusively for their 18 guests.

Our saxophonist played soulful background music as partygoers enjoyed a 4 course meal. Our Oddjob lookalike then fired his replica gun and stumbled backwards into their dining room, apologising for disturbing them, and announcing a truce with his arch enemy, our James Bond lookalike. They then welcomed guests into the bar area, along with our Vegas showgirls, a gold body painted Bond girl and a scantily-clad male host!

Croupiers manned Blackjack and Roulette casino tables, and our staff handed out personalised play money to encourage guests to get stuck into the fun. And our photographer Rebecca captured all the action as it happened.

"Thank you so much for our evening - the entertainment was awesome. Everyone had an amazing time. Can't thank you enough"

Thank you for having us, Deborah and Richard. Enjoy your holiday in Mauritius, and make sure you take us out there with you next time!

Burlesque in Brum

Cabaret bars have enjoyed a real revival over the last decade, and we've recently noticed a number of traditional gentlemen's clubs also moving their focus from table dancing to more demure, Burlesque style acts. This move has attracted more female guests to enjoy these types of clubs. So when a cabaret bar in Birmingham invited us to put on a weekend of Burlesque acts, we couldn't resist getting our thinking caps on and creating some bespoke shows for them.

Our first act was a classic favourite: a cheeky, balloon popping dance. Adorned in jewel-encrusted lingerie and confetti-filled balloons, she popped each one with a white feather, and performed a fun dance with a pair of luxurious white ostrich feather fans.

Our second act was a Dita Von Teese inspired tease, with our artist dressed in a rhinestoned black bra and brief with a silk robe over the top. She entered the stage, removed the robe and ascended a ladder clad with glittery ivy, and climbed into a giant martini glass filled with warm water and lit with LED lighting. The lights changed from red to green to blue to white and every colour in between, in time with the beats of the music, as the artist splashed, spun, removed stockings and finished in sequin tassels. It was elegant and beautiful, and she had the entire audience captivated throughout.

Huge thanks to our artist Honey le Bon, aerialist Jade and fellow Burlesquer Talulah, who all offered show stopping performances.

Roll up, roll up, for the PCA Awards 2016!

Roll up, roll up, for the PCA Awards 2016!

The organisers of the PCA Awards decided to do something different this year - instead of the same old stuffy ceremony, they chose to hold a circus themed event to mix things up and inject a little fun. So as guests walked the red carpet our rather chilly vintage strongmen in leopard print lycra offered the ladies some eye candy, and gave the gents a giggle. High fives, lunges and bicep curls were a-plenty as the videographer captured all of the action.

Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington was beautifully decorated inside with subtle nods to circus. And after dinner, a big screen at the centre of the stage televised a live countdown which prompted guests to find their seats and get ready for the awards to begin. Then a video was broadcast, which the videographer had ever so swiftly put together, showing clips of the guests' arriving at the red carpet just an hour or so earlier. This was met with applause and laughter.

Traditional ringmaster

Our traditional ringmaster took to the stage to welcome the crowd and warm them up, before introducing our LED hula hooper who performed in darkness with her programmed, colour-changing hoops. These had been cleverly customised to incorporate the sponsor's logo - feel free to click on the video at the top of this blog, which shows some highlights of this show.

Then our one-of-a-kind clockwork ballerina took to the stage on her Ballet tiptoes, to present the awards to the lucky winners.  The photographer snapped away throughout and got a selection of both candid and posed shots. And as guests made their way from the dining room to the bar, our circus ballerina moved amongst guests, stopping periodically as if her batteries had run out. And guests were prompted to turn her LED key, in order to get her dancing again. Always a charming act enjoyed by all.

Thank you for your hospitality, PCA Awards, you were wonderful.
