Idea for Charities

Can you help? I would love to know your thoughts.

I would love to undertake a charity ballloonathon, a simple idea with great benefits. This would raise money and get people talking about your charity with a lot of publicity. The event itself would be a fun public day worth coming to see.

The plan is to make a large balloon sculpture eg a full size car out of balloons. This should be made in public place, maybe an empty shop, in a shopping centre or a school.

Once the day is set:

• 1 Raise sponsors which help to build up an expectation to the big day.

• 2 Set a team to help the Balloon Man (Inflate and tie balloons, collect from the public etc)

• 3 Take photos of construction, promotion and a time lapse photos for video. (watch the whole thing in fast speed and then reverse)

The workshop runs for approximately two and a half hours, you not only see great puppet performances; you get to perform with professional puppets. We have found that a puppet workshop: builds confidence, team work and teaches good communication skills. It also works for all groups; additional needs or able bodied, puppet workshops are designed to be all inclusive and accessible to all.

Family cabaret

Posted by Tony Balloonman on April 18, 2013 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (1)

Family cabaret

 

I really enjoy performing at my Family Cabaret Show! This product is becoming increasingly popular and it is now time to inform potential clients of its availability.

 

The Family Cabaret came to light when I was invited to 80th birthday party at a hotel restaurant. Due to the absence of children, I quickly changed the tricks, puppet routines the jokes and the Family Cabaret Show was born!

 

The cabaret is a unique show suitable for all the family, I have performed at leaving do’s, birthdays, wedding anniversaries, special events, retirements and family get together. The cabaret is age appropriate all inclusive fun for all the family!

 

The cabaret show can be taken anywhere; stage show, living room, hall, and I have performed in restaurants next to the table trying not to get in the way of waiters! With our unique puppet, magic, balloons and audience participation, this show is memorable and will become talking point for years to come.

 

Are you having a family get together, wedding, christening or anniversary? Book the Balloon Man entertainment available seven days a week.
