Orchid meet and greet characters

The Mallowstreet Awards held at Vinopolis in London Bridge was a fun evening where the event organiser hired some giant orchid carnival costumes for us to wear as guests arrived. We stood outside the venue attracting a lot of attention from guests, as well as passers-by, as we moved slowly and elegantly like flowers in the wind. The area around Borough Market is always an exciting place to be with many events happening each evening. Our eye-catching costumes helped the Mallowstreet Awards to stand out, with many curious people asking what was happening inside.

As guests sat down for dinner, we performed a synchronised silks act in the beautiful brick rooms with arched ceilings, which are perfect for aerial performances. We had brought a selection of aerial costumes with us as we had not been told the colour scheme before-hand, and our blue and flesh costumes with white silks fitted perfectly with the client’s blue and white decorations, including giant white clouds suspended from the ceiling. We always enjoy performing at Vinopolis as the building creates a beautiful and intimate ambience, and this part of London is so accessible.
