Balloon Chit Chat / Royal Sorell

Royal Sorell December 30, 1958 - October 27, 2016


Patty Sorell posted this on face book.
"Royal passed away suddenly at home. We are heartbroken. Royal was an inspiration to countless people. He was a teacher, a mentor, an example of how to be a gentleman, an entertainer and a friend. He was my best friend. I am at a loss for more words than this, I loved his with all my heart and I don’t know what I’ll do without him. He’s gone from this world too soon."

For those that didn't know Royal he was a performer, balloon artist, co-organiser of Twist & Shout Balloon Convention and teacher. Royal had a wonderful sense of humour. He has reached many people in the balloon community over many years and will be greatly missed.

The next Jam is on Tuesday 20th September, THE VENUE HAS CHANGED!

Please see here http://

The City of London Balloon Jam - Tuesday September 20th 2016, 4pm - 10pm.


The September Jam will take place at Pizza Express Bishopsgate (Just around the corner from the old venue and a short walk from Liverpool street station.)

As Management informed me they will be unable to host us every month, this is a temporary change whilst options for a new(?) permanent venue are being reviewed.

We have the UPSTAIRS ROOM reserved for the afternoon. (Stairs are in the back, on the left.)

The room is reserved from 2pm, for those who want to meet early and have a pre-jam lunch.

Balloon Chit Chat / Anyone been listening to this?
« on: September 18, 2016, 08:01:26 PM »
Hi there,

Have you been listening to the Balloon Artist Podcast? Series Two is now finished and I was delighted to be invited to be on the last very special episode, Chapter 12.

Zivi Kivi (an Israeli balloon artist and kids entertainer) asked me to have a look at his Birthday Party Show for children. So I did, and on the podcast the door is opened and you can listen to me give feedback about his show. Normally any directing is done behind closed doors but Zivi has been courageous and generous enough so you can hear me give detailed constructive feedback for him to improve his show.
 several people have said they found it very useful to help their show too. If you do a children's show perhaps you should take a listen.

But Danny, can we see his show too?  :shock:  Yes you can - just follow the links on the podcast page!

Here is the link for the podcast. http://

You can listen to it by downloading it or you can just listen from the website. Enjoy!   :D
