TV appearance on Let's Do Christmas with Gino & Mel

I was invited to appear on Let's Do Lunch or rather Let's Do Christmas with Gino and Mel. Each episode Gino Da'Campo is challenged to perform a "Lunch-related" skill, which in this episode was aerial bartending! Rather than expect him to hang from a bar like we do in Champagne Rain he was strapped to a spinning board and tipped upside down where he proceeded to pour a glass of champagne for me and a Snowball cocktail for Mel. He was remarkably good and what a lot of fun it was too!

I was booked by the wonderful Celtic Entertainment to perform at Miss Polski 2013 in Poland. Women of Ireland were performing exerts from this years tour at the event and have decided to include aerial in this years show! We were the pre-competition entertainment and then performed a couple of numbers in the live TV showing of the Event too.

A huge fan of Rugby myself, I was excited to have the chance to perform at the Rugby League World Cup 2013 Opening Ceremony! I flew around the pitch at Millennium Stadium from The Dream Engine's "Heliosphere" which was dressed as a giant globe.
