When I speak to guests about our Cirque aerial entertainment one question that often comes up is ‘Where do you find them?!’ Referring to the highly skilled men and women who will fling themselves through the air with exacting poise and elegance at our Manchester Christmas Parties.
Cirque based entertainment in general has become more popular at Christmas parties over recent years and the best circus artists in the world are now highly sought after. We are now in a fortunate position – our reputation for staging great Christmas parties at venues such as the NEC - and now Manchester Central - gives us a good head start and often attracts the best entertainers to work with us. We have been working with some of our artists on the trapeze, silks, ropes and straps for many years, and when they aren’t with us at our Christmas parties in Manchester, they’re flying around the world to other specular events!
We design the theme sets, staging and general high-end look and feel to the events in house and then work with one of the UK’s top event choreographers to design the show and bring the whole experience to life. It’s arguably the most exciting part of my job and seeing guest’s jaws drop open on the evenings is well worth the effort! The troop and I can’t wait to bring the end product to our Christmas parties in Manchester!
