Our Debut Show Report!
On February 7th 2015 The Goblin Circus débuted at a conference held in honour of the Celtic Goddess of inspiration, healing and fire, The Spirit of Brighid Conference in Penarth, Cardiff. It was described variously as:
Unfortunately the Goblins decided that they were camera shy and hid all knowledge of Halo’s camera from her, so there is no video… We definitely saw some cameras flash… but no photos have appeared thus far. This was said as part of a review of the whole conference, however:
“The evenings events a fine way to round the day off, (starting with) The Goblin Circus with Halo Quin’s fabulous story telling, the audience sat totally transfixed to the stage and her story telling…” ~ Annemarie Fairbairn
For which we are most grateful!
What to Expect…
The Goblin Circus has two main ways of operating, firstly as a spoken word (storytelling) show, with Halo telling the tales of the Circus, and secondly in it’s (experimental) walkabout mode, where Halo and friends (such as Maurice the Gryphon or Penn the Dragon) visit and interact with the crowds. You can book Halo to tell tales at parties and events, or to surprise you at bigger events and festivals. Or both! The choice is yours!
Soooo… you like the Goblin Circus and you’d like it to come to your town?
Drop us an email with your ideas and we’ll have a chat about what you’d like and how we can make that possible!
