The Hedge Men – Human Statues | UK
The Hedge Men are one of the most original and fabulous walkabout acts in the business. Straight from the pages of a fairy story they burst into life! They walk, talk and create fits of laughter wherever they appear.
Looking exactly like the real thing they can stand perfectly still or can turn over a new leaf by wandering around a venue and joining in with the fun. Perfect as a meet-and-greet act they can welcome guests on arrival with a tree hug before escorting them into the party.
They can be accessorised to fit in with an event’s theme or style and like nothing better than to wear flashing fairy lights at Christmas time. Let them take root at your event and watch the laughter grow!
They are perfect for garden parties, flower shows, Alice in Wonderland themed events, quirky events, green themed events, nature themed events and anything that wants something fun and original.
The Hedge Men can only go out as a pair and can’t be booked on their own.
The Hedge Men are only available as a pair. They struggle to see in the dark so might need a chaperone in very low lighting. Not suitable for children’s events unless accompanied by security/chaperones as kids like to pull their foliage off.
Standard Length of Performance:
The Hedge Men perform single stands for a maximum of 60 minutes. If spread through an entire day, they can perform a maximum of 4 x 40 minutes sets.
