Trusting your colleagues

Feedback from various members of staff from The Institute of Lifelong Learning, University of Sheffield.  January 29th 2010

 “[Swamp Circus Trust]…did a very good job – excellent… Everyone should give themselves a pat on the back."

“it was lovely to get the chance to try out things which were completely new to me. I never ever thought I would be able to walk along a tight rope wire, even with someone holding my hand, so I am very heartened and my self confidence has taken a nice boost!”

 “a very enjoyable, exhilarating, useful and memorable day … the day achieved it's aims and objectives…creating a sense of caring and co-operation amongst colleagues, it was a very inclusive experience…. demonstrated perfectly how we
have to trust team members to achieve a good end result.”

“an enjoyable, well organised day…most refreshing and inspiring as well as instructive…I will certainly be able to use the experience to build my competencies”

“what a very wonderful day I had yesterday playing at circuses. I have rarely had so much fun”

What they said about us...

"... worked the crowds tirelessly and kept them totally entertained with their fantastic juggling skills, creative and original balloon modelling for adults (what a great idea!!) and incredible balancing skills on the unicycles. I can't thank these guys enough they were always right where I needed them to be at the right time and needed no supervision at all - an Event Co-ordinator's dream!!" Lisa Bremner AECC

"The event went really well and I must comment on what a great job the two artistes did. Everybody at the event commented on how brilliant they were. The artistes were very good at engaging with the young people and soon became the main attraction" Leroy Williamson, Chilypep, Firth park Festival, Sheffield

"I would highly recommend Swamp Circus. A top class performance was given at each venue which kept our guests amazed and entertained all evening. A professional service from start to finish." Dawn Wilkinson, Chorley, Nissan

"We have worked with Swamp Circus on a variety of client events and they have always provided an excellent range of entertainment. On several occasions they have tailored the entertainment so it is in keeping with the brand or objectives of the client which is a huge advantage when attracting business to the venue. We are currently working with Swamp Circus on the launch of Magna's new facilities and we have every confidence that they will once again deliver a high quality performance for our showcase event."
