About the Event

A celebration event for the town’s Christmas light switch on and continuing programme of Christmas themed events.

.

The Brief

We were asked by the Uppingham Town Partnership, which consists of council representatives, local businesses and volunteers, to create a unique entertainment solution for their Christmas lights switch-on.

.

Our Solution

We came up with the concept of using stilt-walkers in Christmas Tree costumes to provide mobile entertainment, accessible to all visitors. The costumed stilt-walkers wore hand-made dresses fashioned using layers of green fabric to create the effective Christmas tree shape. Decorations, lights and tinsel were applied to the costume to create the appearance of a walking Christmas Tree.

In addition, we provided costumed Mr & Mrs Claus and a light-up fairy stilt-walking characters. Also we supplied two talented actresses to play Disney Frozen Princesses, Anna and Elsa, in the festive performance showcase.

The Result

The entertainment choice proved a huge success, attracting attention from visitors of all ages. The glamorous stilt-walkers glided through the crowds and posed for photos with visitors – creating additional exposure for the event on Social Media.
