I'm booked on this.

But a bit disorganised, Do I just turn up with my balloons and pump? I can't see the start times on my order?

Just noticed these, Very good show.

Does anyone know if the robot heads are available in the UK?

Got a lot of love for the  printed rounds.

I just did a quick search for this as I’m struggling with a particular Tiger design. The orange just seems less flexible than other balloons, Think I’ll order some Sempertex and see if they are any better.

The ladybird bracelet is very popular, As is the flower bracelet which I'm sure is from one of Grahams DVDs. These kind of things are my bread and butter for after my birthday show.

I imagine the bracelet type stuff work well on a headband, simple flower, lady birds etc?

Well I must admit I'm very impressed by my Macpump. Just arrived today ( very quick turn around from Graham) . It just does the job, I feel like a pro now!

The episode with Barmy Bella is particularly useful I think

I'm only really doing this as a weekend job but I found her advice useful

I had a logo designed on fiver then set up a facebook group. I did things like asking people to name my Fox character, Shared facts about balloons anything to create interactions with my followers, this means your content gets ranked higher in their feed.


Good luck. I do envy those brave enough to make entertaining and creativity their career.

I agree with the advice to not do it!

£40 in balloons plus a days time, maybe 2 days if you pre twist. Combined with the lack of promotion its starting to sound like hard work!

Looks like a great format for club nights at magic clubs. Might suggest it for my local club

Well my festival was a bit of a bust, Not many children around. The organisers have no idea why but probably competing with too many other local events on such a nice day.

Was a learning experience though, Got a Birthday party next month too which is nice to look forward to.

Just too afraid to get out of bed!!

Was it Shaun the Sheep? Saw that with my 4 year old, much more appropriate

I'm in a similar position, Doing a Village festival. I think I'm just going to sell the balloons rather than a donation as I'm not being payed to be there. I hate the idea of sifting through loads of copper after a busy day twisting. I'm also doing a short street magic style show in between twisting

I'll be doing a similar list of models, I'm hoping to mainly be doing Hitch Hiker hats though, they seem popular. Heart wands and princess tiaras too

Also I accidentally sent this via pm because I haven't had coffee yet!

There is a "Living statue" in Lincoln who uses this tactic with lollipops. Always seemed really underhand to me.
