Incandescence produced fabulous characters to animate the stunning reception area as the guests arrived at the event. These included unique four-legged stilt walkers, live statues, and giant gold gilded picture frames with acrobatic characters inside them bringing them to life.

Christmas Circus Shows -Cirque de Lumiere at the Birmingham NEC

This week on our circus show blog, we’ve got a sneak peak at one of our New Circus Shows,  Cirque de Lumiere, which was produced for this year’s Christmas parties at the NEC Birmingham  for Vivid Experience.


The Incandescence team  has produced bespoke entertainment for this year’s Christmas parties at the NEC. We worked closely with Hawthorns Production team,  to create a fantastic new circus show that opened on the 5th of December to rave reviews, including:

“As an ex-gymnast, I could not do that: the show was amazing.” - Aimee Leigh

‘’Fantastic night at Cirque Du Lumiere.” - Maxine Clarke - One Dental Team

“Amazing show at Cirque Du Lumiere.” - Jessica Bailey - Brewers


The guests were immersed in the world of Cirque De Lumiere from the moment they arrived in the venue, as they were greeted by fantastical characters and were treated to interactive shows performed on a stunning central bar in the beautifully-decorated reception area.


The guests were then seated for a three-course meal and treated to three spectacular custom produced circus shows by Incandescence.

The three shows combined exquisite designer costumes with world-class circus skills and beautiful dance choreography, creating a breath-taking spectacle.

Aerial crane shows Opening and Closing Ceremonies Entertainment

November has been a lot of fun for the Incandescence team  as we’ve been devising and producing a specialist aerial crane show in partnership with NewSubstance,  that will be touring to the Middle East.

Aerial crane rehearsals

Rehearsals started outside our training space in Cornwall (much to the amusement of the locals as they witnessed a giant 100-tonne crane pull into Sennen village) then a custom-made giant human net was flown off the crane, with artists and acrobats suspended from it.

Aerial crane rehearsalsAerial crane rehearsalsAerial crane rehearsals

Our artists also had the opportunity to play on this structure, creating and devising new aerial material. The artists were winched up to heights of 35 metres, suspended from the crane structure and I must say what amazing views we had over to Lands End!

This structure will then be shipped to Doha where 20 artists and acrobats will be suspended from the crane performing a spectacular synchronized performance.

Dubai world cup

Aerial crane shows are one of the most exciting elements that can be put into a show. They are generally used for large-scale outdoor events as part of an opening or closing ceremony entertainment.

Beyonce support show091106_PG_Performance_0085Beyonce support show

As a circus production company, we’ve had the opportunity to produce many of these large-scale shows for some amazing events. Highlights would have to be producing the Beyonce support show in Egypt at Port Galib, the Opening Ceremony for the World Cup in Dubai and the Take That stadium tour Progress  Live [ where we devised and created the famous acrobatic water wall].

Take that- Live Progress Tour
