It's no surprise that summer is our favourite time of year here at the Evolve Entertainment office! The days are long (which means we can sit in a beer garden after work!) and there's a greater choice of entertainment options for our clients.
Over the summer months we have performers at a lot of festivals, family fun days, sporting events and graduation balls. Last year we had fire performers on the Corona beer tour, dancers on stage with Jaguar skills, DJ Fresh and Avicii, as well as colourful stilt walkers at a number of outdoor sports events and fun days. We put on a huge burning man inspired event for a private client, and provided circus and 1920s entertainment for a number of college graduation balls.
Here's our top 5 entertainment options for summer events:
1. Stilt Walkers
This is by far our most popular option for the summer months – stilt walkers are perfect for outdoor events as there are no height restrictions, and they can be seen from a distance, to really make your event stand out. We have a fantastic range of colourful costumes, such as the ever popular tropical birds, rio carnival costumes, and of course our stunning butterflies, which come in 6 different colours. They really add an element of fun to any type of event.
2. Fire Performers
This is such an easy option that is guaranteed to wow your guests. The reason fire performers are perfect for summer and outdoor events is that they can really go to town with the equipment they use, because the restrictions on space are usually limited inside in many venues. Performers can be placed outside the entrance to the event, or add that extra wow factor with one of our artists performing on stage. They can use equipment and techniques such as dragon staff, pyro-technics, sparkle flame and fire breathing to their full effect outside.
3. Large Props
Creating a focal point at your event with a large prop will certainly be a talking point amongst your guests. We have a range of beautiful props that look stunning on their own, or with entertainment in, such as the Aerial Heart Prop, Aerial Birdcage or Martini Glass. These props are perfect for show stopping performances, and provide the perfect solution if you want aerial, but rigging isn't available or the event is outdoors.
4. Interactive Circus Performers
These are especially popular at college and university graduation balls, as they interact with guests to really get the party going. Acts range from flexible animals who climb on and around guests, magicians and even uni-cycling jugglers. They create a perfect talking point for guests and and add to the theme of circus perfectly.
5. All Age Entertainment
Finding something that is going to entertain children and adults alike can be tricky, but there's a number of different options that will suit all ages. As well as performances that people stand and watch, we have a number of different interactive acts that are engaging for children and will leave them wanting more! Bubble performers create huge bubbles for children to pop, and can even create bubbles around people! Balloon modellers can create masterpieces for children and adults to enjoy. Hula hoop artists can teach families their skills and have them spinning hoops in no time, as well as using a variety of other circus equipment.
No matter what summer event you are planning, we have the entertainment for you! Get in touch today.
