It's raining outside but it's definitely still the British summer time! However, this year, I'm finding myself planning for the Winter season of parties and promotional events in the last week of August.
I've recently been submitting proposals for Christmas events, so today I thought I'd create a new collage of entertainment ideas for my social enterprise, Circus Suburbia. There are so many creative and entertaining acts that I've worked with over the years, that the page makes for beautiful viewing! I love putting together packages and tweaking what we do for each client. Not only does it work better for the client to have bespoke entertainment, but it makes it more exciting for us too.
At Circus Suburbia we produce live entertainment for corporate parties and promotional events. This supports our outreach and education work in our local community and beyond.
As a solo aerialist I have a number of aerial and stilt acts for Christmas and winter themed events, and am always delighted to receive a commission to create a new act, costume or prop.
Later this week, Leyla and I are meeting with the circus team for the 2015 Bloomsbury Big Top Christmas Parties. We're excited to plan integrating our Aerial Sphere act into the show, and to creating new aerial acts with the two male aerialists.
We are excited to be working in London for this Christmas season, as it means that on show dates, we can work at other events in the city in the daytime / later in the evening.
Last year my Christmas season was spent coaching Chelsee Healey for a celebrity variety competition with ITV.
The year before that, we performed doubles hoop and stilt walking at The Village Underground, as part of The Imaginarium. It was an immersive experience catering for high end companies looking for a more creative Christmas party in London.
One Christmas season, Leyla and I performed meet and greet aerial hoop during the drinks reception, followed by a silks act during dinner, at Trunkwell House's Moulin Rouge themed Christmas parties.
My very first year working a Christmas-related contract was playing the Woodland Fairy in a pantomime at the Marina Theatre, Lowestoft, in a production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
