------About me: For details and more pictures, please see my site which is in my own name, in the UK. Hello! I'm Sam Stark, performer and event manager. I offer a range of services and I can provide a team of performers or event staff, but my main two packages are Classic Circus Workshops and stilt-walking. For details and more pictures, please see my site which is in my own name, in the UK. I've been stilt-walking for 4 years, and have worked alongside stilt manufacturers to design and offer certified stilt-walking courses. I also trained in many circus skills at FLIC Circus School in Turin, Italy, which has allowed me to offer such a diverse range of services. ------Stilt Walking services: I specialise in high-quality, bespoke costumes that are tailored to your event theme or requirements. You are welcome to have as much or as little design input as you prefer, either way, we will put time, care and hard work into every project (working in collaboration with Purple Hare Designs). I thoroughly plan and cater to any event - we never show up without creative ideas on how to make your event more magical. Whether you are a business requiring a marketing boost, running a family-friendly event for children, or you're an event planner needing an outstanding team of entertainers to represent your brand - we won't let you down. --------------For Corporate hire: Stilt-walkers have an enormously greater success rate of engaging the public and passing out marketing materials. We can make branded costumes with your logo, deliver sales pitches, and advertise your company. If you're looking for creative, high-impact solutions, you should get in touch to speak to our think-tank! We can incorporate stilt-walkers in to treasure hunts, themed events, teambuilding exercises and more. --------------For family friendly events and private hire: The most popular stilt-walking experiences are our 'princess and prince' packages, all with themed activities/walkabout entertainment for families and children. Some examples include: --------------------------Cinderella and Prince Charming - we have a stilt-walking Cinderella and a ground-based Prince Charming, who asks the participants if they will try on the glass slipper, with entertaining results! If anyone suggests the stilt-walking Cinderella, he claims she must have far too large feet! Occasionally, he will find a participant fitting the shoe. In the past, the client has incorporated this into the day activities - e.g. they enter a raffle to try on the shoe, and win a prize if it fits, or a participant gets a crown provided by the client should a shoe fit. --------------------------Alice and the Mad Hatter - Alice, the stilt-walker, has eaten the cake which makes her grow, and asks the participants to help her search for the potion that will make her shrink back to a normal size! The ground-based Mad Hatter is running around elsewhere with the potion and can e.g. require a series of tasks (sometimes a full event treasure hunt) in order to produce the potion. ------Circus Workshop: Our Classic workshops make an excellent addition to any stilt-walking package, or as a standalone service. We can keep roughly 100 participants busy at all times with the amount of kit we bring! Our activities include: juggling, hula hoop, spinning plate, rolla bolla, pedal-go, diablo, poi, devil stick, flower stick and more. We can provide any number of workshop leaders depending on the size of your event. This service also integrates well with hiring a performer who can walk through the crowds juggling and performing tricks for participants. ------Other services: Aerial performance Aerial workshop (e.g. trapeze, silks) Acrobatics performance Acrobatics workshop Group acrobatics workshop Fire performance Fire eating workshop bed of nails sideshow acts character actors After-school clubs Team-building activities Generally, we can cater to any weird and wonderful requirement, and we'll try to fit everything into a cost-efficient package. I hope to hear from you soon!
