Uncle Tacko’s Flea Circus

Available as a walkabout or static act, ideal for infestations of festivals, family events, cabarets and all gatherings of nonsense – Uncle Tacko’s Flea Circus is bound to thrill, excite and baffle.

Uncle Tacko is itching to show you his international troupe of personally trained fleas…

“This is an intimate, exuberantly entertaining show delivered with energy and panache by Uncle Tacko. It is refreshing to see new life breathed into the old Flea Circus…Go see it!”

“Uncle Tacko and his troop of travelling fleas will have you chuckling in your sleep that night. Never before have I seen such death defying acts of bravery from creatures large or small as from this band of miniscule marvels. But don’t get to close or you may go home with a flea in your ear.”
Anthony Green, Anglesey

Captain Ginger & Uncle Tacko

“Captain Ginger” is Uncle Tacko’s cheeky monkey, who has become a firm favourite with everyone for his saucy banter and endearing personality. This is a walkabout and mix & mingle act which is perfect for festival, family fun days and corporate events. This act can perform around and about in almost all circumstances – even wet weather, large crowds or parades and pre-school age groups.

The Imaginarium

Uncle Tacko’s Imaginarium is a showman’s booth with a gorgeous entrance that can contain an audience of 20-30. Lovingly hand-made by Joseph Robson in 2012 and toured extensively since.

“The Imaginarium,…was a great success, with a colourful tent, attractive equipment to draw in a crowd and a series of  acts which held audiences fascinated,  despite the extreme heat of the Eisteddfod week.  This represents good, virtuoso entertainment, enjoyed by both young and old…”
Mike Law, Organiser of the Field Stage programme 2012-13

The Dom-Tink!

The Dom-Tink! is a tip-top attraction! A 20 foot high, try-your-strength “Dom-Tink!” machine.
Can you whack his nobble and ring Uncle’s bell to win a coveted ‘King of Ding’ badge? It’s merely a matter of courage, pride and dignity!

The Tinglary

This authentic barrel piano or ‘Tinglary’ will give your event an even more family fairground feel – spectacular and atmospheric, no show should be without some of these banging tunes!

‘Tinglary’ is the old Yorkshire word for a barrel piano, which has piano hammers that strike strings as a result of a series of pins rotating on a barrel. This is an early form of mechanical music and the fore-runner of the gramophone, record player, CD player and ipod.

The Raree Man’s Peepshow

‘The Raree Man’s Peepshow’ is Tony Lidington’s  latest venture into the world of historical, nonsensical popular entertainments.

Like ‘Uncle Tacko’s Flea Circus’ and ‘The Imaginarium’  this is the next brilliantly bonkers and highly entertaining project to explore historical forms in contemporary contexts.

It was developed in 2015 and had great shows. Available for 2016.

Spike’s P&J Act

Nephew Spike Bones is a 20 year old second generation showman and nonsense merchant, with a skillset that includes puppetry, clowning, music and general tomfoolery.

Nephew Spike Bones’ Punch & Judy show is a traditional, yet alternative take on the slapstick fun of Punch & Judy. In this 25-minute show, set inside a traditional puppet booth, everyone can laugh along with the many misdemeanours of Mr Punch and Ms Judy, along with their usual adversaries. Grandparents, parents and children alike will delight at all their merry misadventures – from stolen sizzling sausages, to a silly snapping crocodile.

This is an old artform made new, as Spike Bones reacts and interacts with whoever and whatever Mr Punch spies, leaving all the generation to agree “That’s the way to do it!”

Seaside Games 

‘Codswallop!’ – all the fun of the seaside funfair with this game for all ages. Visit Sergeant Spike’s jolly fishmonger’s stall and see if you can manage to splat the fish, as it dashes out of the full-pipe slide before flying into the lobster pot below. 

‘Lighthouse Hoopla’ – throw your hoola hoops over the lighthouse to win a prize, or prepare for the walk of shame…

Both games are suitable for all ages and operated by one professional showman/performer.

Pirate Galleon 

The Pirate Galleon (a mobility scooter) is crewed by 2 scurrilous twits: trailing laughs and bubbles in their wake, this bonkers pair are an interactive ride-about act for young and old alike.

The Galleon is a full square-rigger, but the masts fold up and like a ship in a bottle! This means that it can easily pass along pavements and promenades, as well as through most ‘wheelchair access’ doors or under obstructions.”

Seagulls

Our saucy puppet seagulls (Sally & Cedric) are walkabout duo who alert folk to keeping their chips covered and putting litter in bins…in between squirting people with water!

Illustrated Public Talks

Each talk lasts 1 hour, with 10 minutes for Q&A. Suitable for adults and families – the talk can be tailored for the ability and awareness of the group.

Workshops

Prom-Prom delivers a range of practical workshops related to the material we produce.

We can also provide extended workshops or residencies on a variety of themes tailored to your needs.

All our acts have risk assessments and public liability insurance
