Frequently Asked Questions

Are fire shows dangerous?

No, All of our fire performers are trained professionals and they have carefully practised their skills to maximise entertainment and minimise risk. Performers carry safety equipment with them at all times including fire extinguishers and fire blankets. In many cases, the teams will also include a fire tech who is on hand and alert through the performance. The stage shows all require specific ceiling clearance heights and safe distances between the show and the audience. Roaming performers are so adept that they are constantly aware of their surroundings and ready to avoid any risky situation.

Can I book a fire show for my event?

Absolutely, and we are here to help. Scarlett Entertainment has hundreds of fire performers all over the world from roaming performers to big spectacle stage shows. We have fire shows suited to both indoor and outdoors and they range from basic fire eaters to huge pyrotechnic stage shows. We would be happy to discuss your requirements and we will find the fire show that is just right for you.

What do I get when I book a fire show?

A fire show can involve all sorts of fascinating fire-related performances including fire breathing and eating, fire poi spinning, pyrotechnics, circus skills and stunts, dancing, flaming hoops, fans, stilt walker, all male or all female and much more! The majority of our fire performers offer a choice of roaming where they perform one or two acts amongst the crowd, ambient involves several routines in a designated area of your event and is not necessarily the main focal point or you can book a full choreographed stage show that involves many of the fire acts, pyrotechnics and some performances which can only be done on a stage.  

Can I have a fire show indoors?

Absolutely, fire shows can be performed indoors or outdoors. You will need to check with your venue before your book. Some venues will require you to carry out a new fire risk assessment whilst other venues are perfectly used to hosting fire shows. If your chosen venue has a strict no fire policy, you can always consider other options such as LED or pyrotechnics created for indoor use.

It is always important to check the available space for indoor performance. You have to factor in distance between audience and performance and ceiling heights. For example, many nightclubs have low ceilings that either restrict the type of fire show you can book, or make them unsuitable all together. If the venue has sprinklers, it is important that they can be turned off for the duration of the fire show.

How long does a fire show last?

The length of the fire show can depend on how many performers you book and what type of performance you book them for. For a stage show, the routine is generally predetermined and lasts anything between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the act. For roaming or ambient fire performers, it is variable. In many cases, they will perform on and off sets of 5-15 minutes.

Do I need a fire safety assistant?

In some cases, the fire performers will have their own assistant and in others, the venue will have a dedicated fire safety officer. Some fire shows will require the client to arrange for a steward to be on hand to keep guests from getting too close or to prevent any interference with equipment. If in doubt, it is worth contacting both parties before booking someone to come in especially. 

Will the fire show damage the venue?

Again, our fire performers are highly skilled professionals who are experts in this field. They will personally risk assess the area and make every effort to ensure the safety of your guests and the venue. Our fire performers are happy to suggest the best possible location for their fire show or, prior to the event, request alterations to their performance area to sure maximum safety. They can provide fire carpets, to protect the flooring from anything dropping, and correctly position themselves so that they will not affect their surroundings. 

What are the stage requirements for a fire show?

Our fire performers all have their own fire acts and different requirements of stage sizes. The most important requirement is no low ceilings and not drapes or obstacles. They require an average distance of 3 meters between audience and stage and a stage depth of 5 meters. The stage should be equipped with adjustable lighting and a sound system, as most of our acts perform along to a soundtrack. 

Can I have a fire show if it rains?

If rainfall is minimal then yes you can still have a fire show. Bearing in mind that if your performers are outside and it is raining, then your guests are unlikely to want to be outside too. Alternatively, in the right circumstances with the correct approval and health and safety regulations, the fire show may be performed indoors instead but it is necessary to check this prior to booking.

Do I need to supply fuel for the performers? / What should I know if the performers are travelling from abroad?

If your fire performers are travelling from abroad it is very likely they will need you to supply the fuel for their performance as they cannot bring it on any form of public transport. They will inform you of which type of fuel they require and ensure it is kept in a safe place until their arrival or the time of the performance. 

Can a fire show be booked with other entertainment?

Yes definitely. In fact, it is a brilliant addition to an event and really makes it stand out giving it the WOW factor. Many of our fire performers have performed alongside live musicians, at sporting events, with circus acts and at festivals. Setting up and packing down for a fire show is incredibly easy and minimal impact on any other form of entertainment happening at the same time.

Do you have any fire shows that don’t just use fire?

Yes, loads. Several of our acts combine fire, angle grinding and LED props such as poi, we have drummers who include fire (http://www.scarlettentertainment.com/page/fire-water-drumming-show) and, of course, we have many themed fire shows from 1920s to Polynesian that can suit themed events!
