Performing as Thomas Trilby, my speciality is providing entertainment and teaching of the highest calibre – always smartly turned out with the best equipment, highly detailed costumes and carefully chosen props.
For any event – ‘drop in’ for events, fairs, festivals and fun days or structured for team building, training and education. Have a go at juggling, plate spinning, diabolo, devil sticks, hula hoops, stilts, unicycles, tightrope and other circus equipment. Taught by a professional, international circus entertainer.
Thomas Trilby entertains all ages with his traditional show. Lots of circus skills, big visual comedy, audience participation, fire juggling and a big finale make a great show for everyone to enjoy. It can be tailored for street theatre, cabaret, parties or any event!
WALKABOUT characters and stilt walking
I offer numerous fully developed and finely detailed characters and costumes on and off stilts. Bespoke costumes can be created for any theme.
I offer team building and activity sessions for any business environment, including workshops for the workplace or break out sessions for a conference. My workshops and circus-themed shows are suitable for family days. Meet & Greet, and Mix & Mingle for exhibitions and displays.
As part of a small group of performers I can offer solo, double act and trio versions of many of my walkabout characters. For larger events I have many contacts including stilt walkers, contact jugglers, hula hoopers, aeriel acts, acro balancers, contortionists, speciality acts, human statues etc.
They were brilliant at the event, they interacted well with the crowd, were punctual and professional, helpful in encouraging guests to have a go and all round great fun to work with! We will definitely look forward to working with you again!
