Terrance at The Garden of Light
Our Chinese dancing Lion Terrance has been on his travels once again!
This time Terrance and his musicians visited Chesterfield for three nights to dance and entertain the crowds at The Garden of Light Event. As this event happens at night Terrance attached lights to his head and body so everyone could see him coming and admire his dancing.
Many thanks to Jules and Sue from Swamp Circus Trust Ltd for inviting Terrance to perform in a new place-he is really enjoying his travels around England.
All The Skills always finds the people of Bolton to be welcoming and we were pleased that the people attending Tonge Carnival enjoyed meeting Terrance the Chinese lion.
Terrance and his musicians made their Bolton debut in a parade to start the event. Also in the parade representing All The Skills was Naomi, on stilts handing out fortune cookies and continuing the Chinese theme, Sean with his diabolos. The parade had many people from different community groups and schools in the Tonge area and was so much fun that it followed the parade route twice!
After a circus workshop session, Naomi took to her stilts again to assist Terrance, Buddha and the musicians in a short performance at the main stage. Following the performance Naomi and Sean went into a frenzy of balloon modelling until the end of the wonderful event.

Naomi and Sean attended the launch of the 2010 Prestwich festival. Naomi towered above the crowds handing out fortune cookies. The cookies proved so popular that at one point a joke was required from anyone who wanted a cookie.
The Prestwich festival is now in it’s second year and runs for 35 days
