Christmas

A Winter Fairy and Sparky the Robot will be in the city centre to entertain visitors.

Winter Fairy

This beautiful Winter Fairy and her crystals bring a touch of ethereal magic anywhere they go. Her stunning costume literally lights up the dark winter evenings as she thrills the audience with her skilful contact juggling.

Holding audiences spellbound, The Winter Fairy is a gorgeous winter walkabout.

Sparky the Robot

A genuine robot with no human parts and tons of personality. At two metres tall, he talks, dances, plays music, squirts water and causes a sensation wherever he goes. Sparky is fully illuminated at night and is made from a fascinating array of recycled materials.

Sparky is made of… a  plant pot, boat navigation rudder, sandpit cover, fruit dish, microphone stand, welding mask, tricycle mudguards, CDs, guttering pipes, plant sprayer, bicycle wheel, funnel, a hoover, electric window motors, electric wheelchair motors and bass drum tension rods. Set on a recycled wheelchair base, he is controlled with a state-of-the-art digital remote control system, illuminated by a range of LED lights and decorated in silver, gold and blue.

Sparky is just right for environmental or futuristically themed events and is also popular at Christmas as he is the ultimate giant version of our favourite toy. His sparkling blue and gold décor is fully illuminated with hundreds of twinkling lights making him especially suitable for evening performances. He loves parades and can cover a considerable distance if required.

Magical and astonishing visual interaction, this mobile installation engages all children and presents a puzzle for adults. Why? Who? And how does he work?
