City Centre

Bouncing Elves and The Runaway Christmas Tree Fairy will be in the city centre to entertain visitors.

Bouncing Elves

The creators of the ever popular ‘Roo’d’ bring you these Australian elves with attitude. Their powerskip stilts enable these giant bouncing characters to reach impressive heights of 1 metre off the ground.

Sizing up a Christmas crowd is a big job, so Santa has sent out his biggest helpers Horace and Boris to take notes. How do you measure up – Naughty or Nice? They’ll be bouncing around deciding who deserves a visit from the boss man.

The Runaway Christmas Tree Fairy

Miranda has rebelled against the usual fate of the Christmas Tree Fairy (being put in a box in the loft for 50 weeks of the year).  She has hijacked a walking tree called Douglas Fir and gone forth to tell the world about the Campaign for Christmas Twice a Year, the need for stout, warm underwear and the reasons why it is so difficult to get fairy shoes nowadays.

She will happily swap make-up tips with teens, discuss the going rate for teeth with the grown-ups (such nice gals, the tooth fairies) and talk about fairy career opportunities with the little ones. Subtle comedy adapted to each new audience.

A walkabout stilt performance described by one booker as being the most interactive act he had ever booked. Miranda truly engages with everyone she meets and makes them feel special.
