Top 5: 'New Experience' Solo Strolling Acts for Events and Parties

November 12, 2015


There are many brilliant musical strolling acts or bands that wander around guests at events. It’s actually quite common these days with Wandering Hands undoubtedly being the most well known on the events circuit. But what if you’re after something else? Something a little different, that most people won’t have experienced before at a party or event? Well then dear reader, you are in exactly the right place. This is literally the holy grail and there's no deadly rabbit to ruin it this time.*

The Mirror Man

 Work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger. For some reason, those lyrics from Daft Punk (or Kanye West if you prefer) are the thing that comes to mind upon looking at the Mirror Man, a strolling act that incorporates 6,000 mirrors into its performance. No matter where you are, you can always check what you look like! Awesome! (Though perhaps move him on before the third and fourth drinks...) Available as a walkabout character and living statue, he is the epitome of ambient entertainment and is sure to make a stir at your event. Cameras at the ready, folks! Just...err...maybe don't use a flash.


 The undoubted star of one of our recent events, Abnormalik is a mime act like you’ve never seen before. At the very least, you certainly won't have heard him before (zing!) Coming with a raft of different costumes and characters, there is sure to be one to suit your event and ensure that everybody will be talking about it the next morning...except for maybe Abnormalik himself. Take a look at his pictures over on his page here and marvel at the various disguises this superb mime act can provide. Abnormalik is just brilliant and is certainly redefining the idea of entertainment at events in 2015. Interested? It's best to talk to us for the best results for obvious reasons.

Living Topiary

 A unique strolling entertainment act that are loved wherever they go, Living Topiary are sure to raise a smile from even the most Scrooge-like of guests at your event! Approaching them, you may be unsure if they are hedges shaped liked humans (which would be impressive in and of itself as I totally can't do that and not because I don't a hedge...well partly because of that) but no, when the ‘hedge shaped men’ begin moving, people are always amazed! Popular across the world, including a recent event where we sent them to Las Vegas, Living Topiary are the act to have at your next event. 

Judge the Poet

Okay, so Judge isn’t known for dressing in mirrors, appearing as a sad clown or looking like a hedge but what he can do is deliver the most impressive speaking act you’ll see all year. And yes, we are happy to make that claim not knowing how many acts you’ve seen in the past ten months. That is how confident we are that Judge the Poet will wow you. Able to string together an accomplished poem with five of your chosen words in mere seconds, Judge’s poetry in as spontaneous an act as they come, as the video above shows. It just glows.  As your appreciation grows, "he's so verbose"...etc.


 Well, it wouldn’t be an event without a magician, would it? But how to make a magician stand out at your party? Well before you can say ‘magic!’ we’re on the case with the Chillusionist, a fantastic Christmas magician get-up that is sure to go down a storm at your Christmas party. Also suitable for many other functions including parties and product launches, this chilly winter addition to events is sure to impress with his conjuring ability (and let's be honest, his costume!) Brrrrilliant!

* - Yup, that was a Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference.
