Floating high above a lantern procession in Newbury

HUNDREDS of people lined the streets of Newbury town centre  for the festive lantern parade 2011. Over 300 children created their own beautiful lanterns in a workshop the day before only to take to the streets for a procession through the town into the market square.

"Then came the finale - the details of which the Corn Exchange had kept under their hats.
People looked on in awe as a giant spherical lantern floated into the night sky with a Christmas fairy hanging below. She performed an aerial acrobatic display to music as the sphere glowed the colours of the rainbow and floated above the square. " - Newbury Weekly

A truly magical night.  Click here to see the video!

Hot in Havana!

During the Christmas period I performed a series of 10 nights at the Cheltenham Racecourse for Best Parties Ever. It was a month of corporate christmas dinner parties in the theme of Havana. I was working along side the wonderful Lisa Whitmore and the Black Eagles.

The acts we performed were a stilt walking meet and greet, synchronized aerial hoop, synchronized silks and the death defying web spin (spanish web). All latin themed of course! Click here to watch the video!

Winter Wonderland in Edinburgh

I was invited to perform alongside the wonderful Lisa Whitmore on synchronized aerial silks at a beautiful Christmas dinner party in Edinburgh. Our stunning act really brought the Christmas magic as the sounds of Bing Crosby floated around the gorgeous converted church.

We performed in our gorgeous white costumes in the style of snowflakes with makeup and hair to match!

Indian Wedding in Thailand - The Heliosphere

I was invited to perform with the Dream Engine at an Indian wedding at the beautiful Dusit Thani, Pataya, Thailand. 

 The event we were performing at is known as Jaimala (Exchange of Garlands) - the couple exchanges garlands as a gesture of acceptance of one another and a pledge to respect one another as partners. The grounds had been done up beautifully with all fresh flower decorations.

 I was to fly over the water at sunset holding both the garlands and present them to the bride and groom from the heliosphere

We later performed a 10 minute aerial act after the fireworks over the party and down onto the beach. It was very well received.
