The Guardsman – Stilt Walker & Walkabout Character | UK

As a member of the Queen’s Royal Housekeeping Regiment, The Guardsman will busy him self making sure that your Jubilee event and your guests, are well presented, smartly turned out and dust-free. After that, it’s time for a bit of marching, then you can join him for a nice cup of tea from the pot he carries in a compartment inside his ceremonial hat. He’ll also be delighted to introduce you to his pet canary, which nests in inside his hat’s flip-up lid!

Ideal as a meet and greet, or mix and mingle, “upfront” or background, as appropriate. Performed by Bernie, an entertainer with over twenty years experience of interacting with different types of audiences, in a huge variety of settings.

Standard Length of Performance:

The Guardsman usually performs 3 x 40 minute sets, but this is flexible.
