A Bubble Performer is an amazing and magical addition to any festival entertainment.

Delighting guests young and old Bubble Performers capture the imagination and playful nature of everyone. I mean who can resist popping a gigantic bubble!

Using professional grade bubble equipment these performers create incredibly visual bubbles of all shapes and sizes. Bubbleology works really well at festivals – the large open spaces are perfect for this kind of entertainment. 

Face Painting is an activity strongly associated with festivals, embracing the hippy vibes, visiting the glitter bar for some cheekbone sparkles or having a tribute to their favourite act.

Guests can’t resist lining up for a festival face paint – you could say it’s essential festival entertainment! 

Got kids at your festival? Why not treat them to a Balloon Modeller? Our interactive, walkabout Balloon Modellers are ideal festival entertainment.

They can roam the entire site handing out all kinds of twisted balloon creations from basic dogs and swords, to flowers and hats. Alternatively they can stay in the family area creating balloons to inspire imagination and play for younger festival goers.

They are always a huge hit with their colourful costumes, and fun and friendly interaction. 

Our Roaming Chimps are great fun at festivals. They have several costume options to suit many different themes including being classic Circus Monkeys. 
Our Roaming Chimps were designed as festival entertainment. Causing chaos and getting up to no good, these cheeky chimps are always on the lookout for guests to interact with, they run rings around their poor Ringmaster who can’t seem to keep up with their crazy antics. 

Looking to take your festival into the future? Our Space Chimps are ideal for futuristic festival entertainment. Armed with bright orange space hoppers these chimps love to bounce around and challenge guests to impromptu space hopper races. Three, two, one, blast off! 

There’s so much to do at a festival – the schedules are always packed full with exciting activities, and quite often festival entertainment needs to be flexible to allow guests to drop in when they get chance. A Circus Workshop is the ideal solution to solving this problem.

Running drop in sessions throughout the day the instructors at the Circus Workshop are happy to help you learn the basics in a new skill, there’s plenty to try out.

Hula hoops, juggling clubs, diablos, spinning plates, spinning poi, tight ropes, juggling scarves, juggling balls and so much more this activity will keep festival guests of all ages entertained for hours. 

Stilt Walkers are an exciting option for walkabout festival entertainment.
Colourful and larger than life these performers tower over festival goers and can’t resist dancing along to the music.
Giving all the festival vibes this entertainment option will be sure to bring the festival atmosphere and get your guests in the mood to party. 

Fancy a touch of vintage or seaside vibes at your festival?

A favourite entertainment option in historic England was the classic Punch and Judy booth with its iconic hand puppets, what better way to bring a sense of nostalgia to your event than with this traditional form of entertainment.

Modernised for a new type of audience but with all classic pantomime of the original art form Punch and Judy shouldn’t be over looked when planning festival entertainment. 

Of course this is by no means an exhaustive list as we offer hundreds of entertainment options which can be found on our Browse Artists page.
