Outdoor Shows

Communities can request from an exciting range of outdoor shows for their fetes, festivals or other events. Our outdoor menu includes street performers, impactful outdoor performances and walkabout characters. Not just for summer events, outdoor performers can be booked all year round and will be a great addition to your Christmas Lights Switch-on or Festive Outdoor events.
