Events

Whatever the event, we are here to help, whether you are searching for a venue or struggling with the logistics, our event management experience, industry contacts and original ideas will lift the event to the top of the tree.

 

 Show Specifications and Event Guide 

This page is to assist you in ensuring that the show will fit the venue you have in mind. 

Legal bit 

All our performers  have Public Liability insurance/ Equity Membership and all acts will have been Risk Assessed, copies of which are available on confirmation . Please let us know if you need to see the CRB's as legally no copies can be sent prior to the event and must be checked to your satisfaction on the day. All electrical equipment is PAT tested and fire fighting equipment is included for all fire shows.      

Circus Shows 

We love to work in a Big Top or Marquee and can arrange to have one supplied if required, we do have our own "Little Big Top which is great as a backup for poor weather but we have only ever got about 50 small  guests in there :-)

Space

A solo show needs vary depending on the act , approx  5 metres by 5 metres with audience seated on the floor is a start. 

Good general lighting is fine.

We bring self powered PA systems and music when required. For larger audiences 250 + we will want to patch our radio mike system into the resident PA system.

Sound Requirements

 

For  audiences up 200 we have portable 12 volt MIPRO PA's on Prosound stands and radio mics.  Space in front of the stage area is required to erect these

 

A 220 AC supply is required for multiple shows

For larger audiences we will need to patch into your house PA system. 

 

Outdoor Requirements

PA as above  

Fire Shows 

Where appropriate we utilise our own music, where original scores are to be used, rehearsal times and cost have to be vectored in. A site visit is always preferred to ensure a performance "fit" can be made and to allow for proper risk assessments to be carried out. Site visit costs are chargeable  from the event organisers 

Outside area with a 5 metre cordoned off safety space between the performers and the audience,. iWe bring fire extinguishers, fire blankets and first aid equipment to all our shows. Some ground scorching will occur. Ensure you have the land lord/ owners, local councils permission BEFORE booking a fire show. 

Workshops 

You need at least a hall the size of a badminton court for 15 students and preferable two courts for 25 , more preferably., especially if unicycling or whips are required. Mini workshops can be pared down if required . We can supply workshop shelters, marquees and party tents if required. 

Walkabout Entertainment 

Ensure you have the local authorities permission for any parade before we start! For some characters that have limited vision or are on tall stilts , we will supply a "minder" or you will need to supply a "designated safety steward"  to ensure their safety on the streets. Please let us know if you are unable to provide so that we can arrange cover.
