Frequently Asked Questions

What stilt walkers do you have?

What stilt walkers don’t we have! It is one of the most versatile forms of entertainment and therefore we have a roster full of stilt walkers all over the world each offering different costumes and routines - from circus themes, animals, flowers, robots, as well as comical characters, fantasy creatures and magnificent LED characters too. 

Some of these stilt walkers use bouncing stilts giving them more agility and dynamic bouncing strides! You will also find some of our acts have stilts on their arms too. These are often used by animal imitators and some of the more bizarre and surreal characters.

What do stilt walkers do?

The wonderful and varied stilt walking acts on our roster all do different things aside from walking. In its purest, simplest form most of our stilt acts are roaming and will wander around your event or march at parades. We have circus-based acts that include juggling as well as acrobatic skills and there are dancers, musicians, animal impersonators and stage performers too.

Are there ceiling restrictions for stilt walkers?

This entirely depends on the stilt walkers you book for your event. They come in different shapes and sizes and therefore some will need a certain ceiling height so they don’t bang their heads. Some of our shorter stilt acts require a range between 3 and 4 metre clearance. Some of the acts use bouncing stilts and can leap up to 10 feet high and other straight stilts walkers can reach astonishing heights of over 10 meters. So, realistically these would only suit outdoor events.

How long do the stilt walker performer for?

It completely varies from one act to another but generally, stilt walkers will perform a number of sets. These ranges from fifteen minutes to forty-five minutes. Stilt walking can be physically strenuous for the performers so they need to take breaks between the performances. With this formula, many of our stilt walking acts are able for several hours on and off for a whole day.

Expert Advice on hiring Stilt Acts

Special Considerations With Stilt Acts

Ensuring you have the right facilities for the performers is a key consideration. Most Stilt Acts require a minimum ceiling height of three metres, and it’s important to ensure there are no steps between the performance area and the changing rooms as stilt performers are unable to navigate stairs.

If You Can Dream It, We Can Make It

We have a huge range of Stilt Acts available but if there is a specific theme in mind that you cannot find on our website then please get in touch. Our dedicated In-House Production Teams will turn your vision into a reality.
