If you and your guests have a great love of the Bard and his works or you simply would like an impromptu Shakespearian performance we can cater for every need. Our highly skilled team of actors can perform over four hours of Shakespearian sonnets, songs, speeches and scenes. Should you wish for a serious evening of Shakespeare or a good laugh from the comedies we can create a unique event just for you. In our experience Shakespeare goes down well at Weddings and we have our own William Shakespeare who can recite your favourite love songs, speeches and sonnets to give your special day that romantic feel. Our Shakespeare events are incredibly popular and each event is designed just for you. Characters available include: Macbeth, Lady Macbeth, The Fool, Hamlet, Bottom, Oberon, Titania plus many more.
With our wealth of knowledge when it comes to historical periods we can provide performers from various eras of History either real people or fictitious ones including: Medieval, Tudor, Elizabethan, Victorian, Edwardian and the 1940's. These characters are carefully researched and are perfect for historical societies, school workshops, tour guiding or just to add that touch of glitz to your event. If you have a particular character or era you wish to have we are happy to create one just for your event.
Many members of the company are 'scare trained' and perform in scare attractions and ghost tours all over the country and some have scared internationally. Whether you are looking for a unique ghost walk, a halloween party with a difference or actors to give your guests a fright our ghosts and ghouls are perfect for a terrifyingly fun experience.
