Teaching at 'Ashtonbury Festival' for Ovo

I was booked through Cirque Bijou who were asked to teach a series of circus workshops at a corporate event for Ovo - Bristol’s Green Energy company. They held the event at Ashton Court, Bristol and had a mini “Glastonbury” festival. Shame about the weather! 

Aerial Bartending for the RNAS Summer Ball

Champagne Rain was thrilled to be booked again by the Royal Air Force, this time it was in Oxford at the RNAF Benson. The event was their Summer ball, and was Great Gatsby themed. Time to don the fringed hotpants and feathers again! And what gorgeous weather we had for it too!

Heliosphere at The Hop Farm Music Festival

Hop Farm Music Festival 2014 had a fantastic 3 day line up packed full of artists from the past and present. With two stages and the introduction of several other areas like the Jazz & Blues lounge, Comedy Big Top, Kidz Field and Silent Disco, along with Themed Bars and Gourmet Food. I was booked to perform just after James Blunt and just before the Beach Boys! What fun! 

Teaching 2000 Brownies how to Tightrope Walk!

Brownies are 100 years old in July 2014 and GirlGuiding South West invited Cirque Bijou to help them produce a birthday party to remember.  They created a wonderful stage show, which incorporated some of the brownies and circus skills they'd been taught and also held a huge circus workshop. I was booked to teach Tightrope Walking! What fun! 

Aerial Hoop at Glastonbury Festival

Excited to be booked for Glastonbury Festival 2014! I was performing on La Folly - a huge archway that separated the Circus and the Theatre fields!
