Socially distanced entertainment
Although we can start breathing a (mask-covered) sigh of relief as coronavirus restrictions start to lift and vaccination brings us closer to normality, there is still a long way to go. With the vaccination programme ongoing, and the potential for new variants that current vaccines do not provide protection against, it’s likely to be some time before we can safely gather the way we used to. But that doesn’t have to be a problem for any entertainment at the event, awards, or celebration you were planning.
Like everything else, entertainment has adapted to the pandemic. As long as the relevant guidelines are followed, there is no reason you can’t add a little wow to your event with some socially distanced entertainment. All our shows have been adapted to ensure that your audience, suitably spaced, will be thrilled, amazed and entertained.

The performers combine grace and athleticism to transform themselves into an array of silhouettes. Whether it’s their gymnastic strength or their ingenuity, your audience will be astounded at the shapes they see.
There are three pre-designed shows to choose from. Their UK show celebrates everything about the country, and its culture: from Stonehenge and the Loch Ness monster, to Tower Bridge and the City of London. If you are looking for something more global, then they can also take you on a world tour, taking in sights like the Sydney Opera House or the Taj Mahal. Or, for something more thought-provoking, what about a show that looks at human history, all we have achieved and posing the question ‘what might happen next?’ And if none of those meet your requirements, they can create a bespoke show just for you.
If you are looking for something tech themed for a corporate event, or even share the view that advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, then a digital illusionist is exactly what you need.
Available to perform shows all over the world, this artist is based in the UK and US and all the tech magic is specially designed for this show by the artist himself, so you won’t have seen it anywhere else.
Using multiple iPads, virtual and augmented reality and even drones the show uses modern digital trends, like social media, as its theme.
This isn’t just a clever app, it’s a technological spectacular that will leave your audience questioning where the tech ends and the magic begins.
Nothing quite has the wow factor of aerial acrobatics. Our troupe can perform sets with anything from one to ten (or even more if space allows) acrobats, including dazzling silk acrobatics in which the acrobats will spin, swing and soar while entwined in suspended silks.
The troupe can perform in a range of themes to fit your needs, whether it’s a monochromatic black and white, or a fiery heaven and hell, from a spooky Halloween to a magical Christmas, they can provide stunning stage sets or ambient performances to keep your guests entertained.

A light show spectacular, this duo takes advantage of human biology, precision choreography and light technology to offer a visual feast for their audience.
At the foundation of the show is a dance routine that will astound with the precise acrobatics as the dancers move together, performing leaps, rolls and set-pieces that would be worthy of a show on their own. Then add in their props, that they keep moving throughout, spinning rapidly in the gaps their bodies create, just a whisker away from each other. And, finally, add the lights which leave graceful trails as they swing and move around, creating lines, arcs, and circles.
If that wasn’t enough, the lights are programmable and, with their perfect timing, you will see intricate patterns or even corporate logos appearing as the show progresses at dazzling speed. An amazing show for your event.
Regardless of what your audience believes before the show, they will believe in angels after they have seen this performance. The Light Angels combine a spectacular dance show with intricate costumes each featuring lights to create an enchanting display of elegance and grace.
The show is best performed in a dark venue or outside on moonless night to maximise the impact of the lights and costumes. The dancers can perform using props, but the most breath-taking part of the show are the beautiful costumes.
The specially designed outfits feature thousands of integrated LED lights that help accentuate the dancers and their movements.
Whether it’s watching the grace of ballet, the colourful beauty of a butterfly opening its wings or, of course, the majesty of angels, any audience will have their breath taken away by the artistry.
