Vignettes and Other Offerings
Our experienced team provide a wide range of extra performance based activities and products available for festivals, parties, weddings, children's events, community events and schools.
We can come out to your event individually or as a team of 2,3 and 4. Simply contact us to discuss your requirements.
As well as offering Pirate parties to children and Pirate Pantomimes for festivals the Wardrobe Team can offer Piratical events for big kids too.
Costumed hosts (Captain Barnacle, Filibuster, Jinx and Shanty) will arrive at your venue with artefacts, dressing up, flags, bunting, treasure chests, swords and more. Pirate initiation ceremonies are a must as are the obligatory sea shanty sing-a-longs to guitar. Story-telling and Street Theatre can also be woven into your event.All parties are tailored to suit so contact us to find out more.
Music is the Food of Life
Our in-house musician Steve Newton is on hand to provide guitar based accompaniments to most of our 'antics' but can also perform full sets and offers a 'cheesy' disco service too.
Alternatively Steve and Maria aka Bertrand Xavier and Ruby Moodwarmer, perform a set of Music-Hall songs for sing-a-longs which work perfectly in a festival, wedding or summer party context.
Not quite right? Then just tell us what you fancy. Our party planner, Janinka has a background in music promotion and has a long contact list of bands and musicians covering all genres.
Walkabout Characters for all occasions include the Tudor Ghost, the Dying Pirate, the Pooping Tortoises, the Sales Reps, Bert the Talking Dog, Harvey Wallbanger the eccentric expat colonel, Wills and Kate, Pirates, Medieval Malarkey (pictured), Ruby and Bertrand and anything else you can think of - we are always happy to tailor where we can.

Indian Puppetry maestress Maria Coehlo presents a 45 minute long Indian Puppetry set with traditional puppets recounting The Ramayana, the story of Rama and Sita from historical Hindu tale. Partner Steve Newton weaves his music sensitively around the story adding a sound-scape of beautiful effects to this enchanting story. As well asbeing entertaining and culturally educational this story also touches on issues of migration, diversity and identity. see more at www.samesamebristol.co.uk.

A cute Pixie Post-Office makes for a wonderful addition to weddings and parties. Children will delight a being wrapped up by Mrs Murgetroid and at posting letters through our Birdcage letter box.
