Walkabout Entertainments by Snapshot Productions are available for hire from Nottinghamshire
The aim of a walkabout is to provide a meet & greet welcome for visitors and / or to create and sustain a vibrant atmosphere throughout an event with mobile entertainment throughout the day. Michael & Chris use their wide range of skills to produce a lively & fun atmosphere on an individual level, as well as with small groups. Things work best when costumes & skills are matched to the event & audience.
They also offer a variety of mobile entertainment that can be changed throughout the day. This can include unicycling, circus skills such as plate spinning, pocket magic & balloon modelling. They can present these skills in a range of character costumes such as Ringmasters, Jovial Jesters, Clowns & Victorians.
In addition, they offer specific walkabout acts. One of their favourites in The Mrs Mopps, who are loud, bright, interactive, fun & slightly cheeky, travelling with their own cleaning equipment & gossiping their way around.
Chris is also adept as a storyteller, narrating short tales that are event & age-themed, wearing a cape & hat and presenting a slightly mysterious figure.
Mobile music mongering is carried out by The Travelling Fun Band using guitar, clarinet, harmonics & vocals to be accompanied by members of the audience with percussion instruments.
