Description

Price from: £
Price is hugely dependent on the services and packages we provide, as there are so many! You'll need to get in touch with all the specifics of what you need from us.

I'm Sam Stark, performer and event manager. I offer a range of services and I can provide a team of performers or event staff, but my main two packages are Classic Circus Workshops and stilt-walking. I produce high-quality, bespoke stilt-walking costumes that are tailored to a client's theme or requirements. I also have a standard wardrobe of options to choose from.

I've been stilt-walking for 4 years, and have worked alongside stilt manufacturers to design and offer certified stilt-walking courses. I also trained in many circus skills at FLIC Circus School in Turin, Italy, which has allowed me to offer such a diverse range of services.

Sam Stark's stilt walking and work shops were fantastic -- really fun for kids and adults alike. Her costume was really impressive as well. Really can't recommend her enough!

"I saw Sam entertaining guests at a friends wedding and was impressed enough to book her for my own!

The outfit was fantastic and fitted well with the theme of the day. Her warm personality engaged the people and helped create a truly special day."

FAQ
  • Do you make stilt-walking costumes?
    Yes - I make all my own stilt-walking costumes in partnership with Purple Hare Designs. We work to the highest standards and hope this is evident in the pictures of our costumes. We even make all the corsets ourselves!
  • Do you make stilt-walking costumes?

  • Are you DBS checked?
    As I am self-employed, I cannot request a DBS myself - a client must put in the request as a 'sponsor' under the new system, and it is event specific. Therefore, I am very happy to be DBS checked but I cannot acquire one myself. I have recent, clean (albeit expired) DBS checks that can be viewed.
  • What experience do you have working with children?
    I have worked with children for many years as an entertainer and teacher of circus skills, art and English. I taught children when I was a child myself - around 12 years old I briefly lived in The Gambia and taught English at a school in an impoverished area.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
    Yes - Equity.
  • How long do you need to set up?
    Depends on the service and exact package. Anywhere between 15 minutes and 1 hour. Some services, e.g. costumed services, will require a private room we can safely leave belongings and use as a dressing room.
  • Do you limit the number of children that we can invite to our child's Birthday party?
    No, we advise on the number of entertainers/workshop leaders you should hire dependent on the number of kids, and their age.
  • Any special requirements for the show?
    Depends on the service and exact package we've made for you! Get in touch.
  • Do you have Public Liability Insurance?
    Yes, with Equity.
  • Is the show safe?
    Yes - I have Equity public liability insurance and a risk assessment for all services.
  • Can you work outdoors?
    Yes - but some of our services may become unsafe in bad weather. This is a risk you may have to take, and we will always try to substitute activities with the next best thing if we find we are unable to perform in current weather conditions.
  • What venues can you work in?
    We can work in all venues, although different services will have different restrictions e.g. ceiling height for stilt walkers and fire eaters, or bad weather.
  • What age range do you work with?
    We can provide entertainment for all ages and for all purposes, e.g. corporate, weddings, public, charitable etc.
  • How long is your performance?
    Stilt-walkers work in sets - so, for example, we may do an hour walkabout, break, an hour walkabout and then finish. Our workshops on average last for 2 hours, but we have also catered to whole day events and offered e.g. 5 hour workshops. We also do shows, which naturally will be much shorter! Generally we work to your requirements!
