Bread & Butter Theatre Company
Perfect costume character entertainers for every event.
The Green Fingered Folk
Two huge topiary bushes nestled in gigantic terracotta pots – this is horticulture on a grand scale. Passers by will be surprised and delighted by the mischievous garden fairies that live within. But beware, they can be over-zealous with their watering cans!
Lord of the Bins
Gandalf the Garbage and Frodo Bin-Baggins (Can you see what I did there?) are two very special puppets perched on their very own bins, with a mission to save Middle Earth with their recycling message.
Mr Stretch and Mr Armstrong's Comedy Sportsday
Multi-talented performers with a consistently friendly approach. Reliable, hardworking and innovative, The Bread and Butter Theatre Company are a perfect act to choose if you are looking for performers who can offer variety throughout the day.
The Van Dunk Brothers
Armed with a trunk full of trunks, swimming caps, goggles, armbands and veruca cream, the boys will delight crowds with their award-winning dry land synchronized swimming display. Marvel as the boys perform the routine that won the Brothers the gold medal at the Olympic Games, World Championships and Burnley Baths Swimming Gala, using only a kitsch soundtrack, physical comedy and two bottles of still mineral water.
The Carol-Singing Christmas Crackers
These colourful and festive characters who tell the obligatory dodgy cracker jokes, will entertain the whole family with their “Name that Tune and they will sing it” Christmas Special (Even requests for Shakin’ Stevens will be considered!). Men will marvel at their golden bells and women will just want to 'pull' them! Available for walkabouts and Christmas switch-ons.
Holly and Ivy
The magical Christmas fairies, live inside their very own enchanted Christmas trees. They are eager to pass on all their Festive expertise from tree-dressing tips to schmoozing with your mother-in-law after Christmas dinner! Ideal for entrances to shops, Christmas parties and relieving the “tension” of the queue to see Santa Claus.
Gifted the Space Cadet
The much-loved lycra-clad hero materialises to the sounds of his very own theme music, beAring gifts of yellow Y-fronts from far away galaxies for audience members to wear. The audience then find themselves in a cosmic, comic game show with a mind-bending finale. Pirates of Menspants Two dashing, bearded, sea shanty-singing pirates, entertain aboard their barnacled covered ship. Viva Las Wedding The Elvis Parsley twins cordially invite you to the world’s only walk-through wedding chapel, complete with confetti, rings and honeymoon tickets!

There is something for everyone from Boney M to Nat King Cole, Johnny Mathis to Wham. Guaranteed fun, games and mistletoe (for those slow numbers!).
Mr Egghead and the Easter Egge Hunt
Just in case you require some top-quality entertainment over the Easter period we have Pete and Ged Moss the Gardener’s Easter Egg Walkabout Special (Live hen not included!).
