Excellent and Experienced Entertainer

Professor Fiddlesticks has been working at parties, weddings, fêtes, schools, playschemes and corporate events since 1993. He offers two shows or activities, circus skills and balloon modelling.

The circus skills show and workshop is a structured one-hour routine, which can be watched and enjoyed by the whole family, and has plenty of opportunities to participate. The Professor demonstrates juggling, devil sticks, balancing, diabolo and unicycle, and encourages audience members to have a go with some of these.

The balloon animal workshop takes about 30 to 45 minutes. The audience watch Professor Fiddlesticks make a range of animals, from simple ones to more complicated, through to amazing trick-models. They learn how to make a balloon dog and then work in pairs with balloons the Professor has inflated prior to the show. At the end, there are competitions to win the different balloon animals made at the start, so everyone goes home with a model they've made themselves or have won.  

Professor Fiddlesticks also offers:

  • A freeplay circus workshop, for instance with Cubs, Scouts, Brownies or Guides for their Circus Performer Badge
  • A walkabout or unicycle-about character, perfect for "meet and greet" or creating a fun atmosphere at outdoor events
  • A science show 'Professor Fiddlesticks Fun Physics' which complements KS1 and KS2 in schools or science/maths events
  • 'Jester Jigglesticks' mock-medieval madness
  • Town crier announcements: one of the loudest, clearest voices in the business
  • Fire-show by special arrangement only

Professor Fiddlesticks enjoys working with people with special needs, developmental disorders and disabilities, and makes his activities as accessible as possible.

Professor Fiddlesticks is a member of Equity and is therefore covered by full public liability insurance. He will be happy to talk you through a risk assessment at the venue before the show, if requested. 

The Professor will travel anywhere within the UK, and uses public transport, or bike and trailer for most appointments within about 20 miles from York.
