Tonge’s Got Talent

Filed under: circus skills, Comunity, Stilts — alltheskills @ 10:44 pm

On Saturday Naomi and Sean provided various circus based entertainment at Tonge’s Got Talent 2009. It was the giant pink fluffy leg warmers first official outing and overall they were well received.

The day was about celebrating local talent and we were treated to singing and dancing from the Melody Pop school, football matches and a line dancing demonstration. Several special guests were invited to watch the performances including the Mayor and Lofty the Bolton Wanderer’s Lion.

After doing some walkabout, Naomi and Sean did a drop in circus skills session teaching children and their parents how to spin plates, juggle, spin diabolos and more. Sean made one senior citizen’s day by presenting her with a balloon model cat in memory of her Bertie who had recently passed on.

Naomi and Sean were both interviewed for Bolton FM, which gave Sean the opportunity to put to use his media training. The conversation went something like this… “So what do you think about events like this?” – ‘They’re great, it brings the comunity together and everyone has fun!’ -“What was your favourite thing today?” – ‘The circus skills!’ 🙂

Sean later was interviewed about his contact juggling, probably the first time something so reliant on visuals has been portrayed on this medium.
