Hereford and Worcester Chamber Business Awards 2012

I was booked to perform aerial silks and hoop alongside Jack Cushion, a local star from the west-end aged just 15, singing live. 

"Spectacular Performances" - Chamber Business Awards 2012





Champagne Pouring at a Wedding in Florence, Italy

I was invited to perform alongside Cole Conner at a prestigious Russian wedding in Florence, Italy.  We performed Champagne Rain - the innovative concept of aerial bar tending. We poured champagne for the guests in a beautiful glass marquee at a villa in the countryside. We were performing along side LMFAO and Quest Pistols (infamous in Russia apparently!) A memorable evening indeed.

Festival No.6 - Heliosphere in Portmeirion



I performed The Heliosphere (by The Dream Engine) at Festival No.6. Described as ‘bespoke’ by its organisers, this September's Festival No. 6 achieved an eclectic bill and satisfied crowds, an achievement that would no doubt be admired by the flamboyant creator of its host village: Portmeirion. The line-up included Primal Scream, Gruff Rhys, and New Order.

A couple of videos can be found here and here!

Aerial Cider Pouring at a Vintage Circus Event


For the second year in a row, I was invited to perform at a vintage circus event in Chippenham! As the event had a rustic feel to it, Nicole Pearson and I took along our aerial rig for the day and do some aerial cider pouring!

Performing alongside us was a hula hooper, stilt walkers, acrobats and some Victorian Strongmen and an excellent band.

Heliosphere at Piccadilly Circus Circus


Piccadilly Circus Circus was one of the Mayor of London's SURPRISES events – big performances which are only revealed hours before they take place. Across twelve stages between Conduit St and Waterloo Place trapeze artists, jugglers, gymnasts, dancers and beat-boxers wowed audiences with their spectacular feats. Of course the heliosphere was there to entertain the crowds!
