Hogarth Halloween Characters – Walkabout Characters | UK

Hogarth actors are the come-to collective when ever your event needs a spark of energy warmth and welcome created by meet and greet mix and mingle characters. With a fifteen year history of creating comic and entertaining characters from gangsters and molls to comedy FBI characters, aristocrats to spoof guests, wacky waiters and XXX Hogarth are able to take any brief or theme and bring it to life.

They can create historical characters, accurately researched if necessary such as Queen Elizabeth1st, Queen Victoria, Charles Darwin, HG Welles, Shakespearian characters and Dickens characters such as Fagin and the Artful Dodger.

They can, and have created many fantasy characters, such as wizards and aliens – even the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland!

The team can create their performances and interactive characters in response to the themes of the event, whether it is based of a historical era, colour, books or films and enjoy being asked come up with inventive ways to entertain the guests.

The team can create scripts for bespoke sketches, comedy scenes, comedy fight sequences, short pantomimes, historical spoofs, fake police raids and serious presentations and regularly integrate information provided from the client to make the performance truly bespoke.

Their extensive wardrobe and prop store allows them to provide a wide range of high quality props and costumes from any era, including many hand made costumes.

People regularly say to Hogarth: “We’re having this event – have you got any ideas…?” We specialise in answering that question with an original, entertaining and tailor made performance.

Characters Include:

The Living Dead

Risen from their dusty graves and wandering through the venue, the walking dead hold sorrowful secrets – could you be their salvation. Once you’ve met them you’ll never forget them. Excellent meet and greet, mix and mingle

Dracula and his Lady Vamp

A black comic element. The most elegant Highclass Vampire & his vixen, accomplice and over who seductively select their next victim. With just a bite of humour… Excellent meet and greet, mix and mingle

Priest and Twisted Sister of Mercy

The Priest and his sister Mary Amnesia, who crashed into a convent and lost her memory, deliver a good dosage of tongue in cheek, and a somehow skewed view on confessionals & re-inventing the 7 deadly sins! When you’ve met them you’ll just wish you we’re more sinful! Excellent meet and greet, mix and mingle.

Head in a Box

For any Horror, Halloween or Spooky theme, engage the ugly hunchback Horace to wheel around his box. The surprise is that inside the box, is the living head of his wife Esmeralda. They entertain the public, not least by encouraging the ‘grape in the mouth’ game.

Standard Length of Performance:

The performances can be adapted according to the client’s requirements.

“The story teller was amazing. He made the most of the facilities given to him and he was a pleasure to work with. Without doubt, if we ever need a story teller for future events he would be a perfect candidate for sure. I appreciate your efforts in helping us with this event and I have no doubt Beatwax will be demanding your services again in the near future!”

“Just wanted to drop you a line to say the actor’s at Scott’s b’day (think Abi organised them) on Saturday night went down a storm, they were brilliant. When everyone found out they were gobsmacked that they had been so sucked in!! Would definitely use them again for another event, worked so well.”
– Anglo Irish Bank Corporation Ltd

“The actors were the perfect mix of outlandish and subtle – and the actress who played Anna was especially superb! I think our dinner party has become the talk of the Putney social circuit and its one people won’t forget for a while. Only downside is that I suspect a fair number of our friends are plotting their revenge!!! Thanks again – it was a perfect evening. Please pass on my thanks to the actors.”
– Private Client

”Thank you so much for the most fabulous bunch of entertainers organised for our client party last week – what a great group of people! … Ed and ‘the boys’ (I love the fact that Clive is now off at Harrods as Father Christmas!) – don’t know how we could use them again, but I’m sure we’ll find a way. Lovely people, lovely evening, all just lovely! Please do pass on my belated but sincere thanks to them all. It can indeed only be described as a legendary night. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Clients had a cracking time. Debi – as ever, a truly fantastic party last night. This is simply to thank you for an excellent party last night.”

Anna was a great asset to the event, she was extremely enthusiastic and worked the crowds very well.

The overall feedback from the staff and consumers was that Anna made a big impact to the event, she was engaging with  the audience and was full of energy throughout the show.”

“….Thank you for your assistance with the 50 Year Celebration last week. The event was very successful, and all the guests had a fun and entertaining night and we’ve had great feedback from our clients. Thanks for your help with all the aspects you were providing us with. The stilt walkers looked great when welcoming all of the guests into the venue. They especially looked the part with their amazing costumes! I can say the same for the periodic actors too. They all looked great and really mixed into the party well, and getting involved with lots of photographs! The green screen was also a fantastic addition to the celebration…..We really appreciate all your hard work, not just last week, but over the past few months to ensure that the night was a success. …”
