Three times British Juggling Champion Barney Bay is the perfect entertainer for a vast range of events and occasions. His unique blend of comedy and circus skills will delight any audience - with his skills as a stilt-walker, unicyclist, jester, fire-eater and balloon-modeler, and with an amazing comedy juggling cabaret besides, entertainer Barney is an asset to any event be it Corporate, family or children's.

"The best Juggler we've ever seen!" - BARBARA HANCOCK, ST MARY'S FESTIVAL

"We were delighted by the large audience which your cabaret drew, and the number of people dancing in comedy balloon headwear was testament to the popularity of your balloonology." - MARK COTTON, ORIEL COLLEGE OXFORD.

Barney Bay performed his first juggling show in 1988 at the age of 14. Since then he has appeared at Hotels, Holiday Centres, Corporate Functions, Theatres, Universities and Private Events throughout the U.K., as well as further afield in Dubai, Switzerland, Spain and the Mediterranean Islands.
Wherever Barney appears his main aim is to ensure that everyone is entertained - and as an accomplished cabaret , table-hopping and strolling entertainer he is well placed to do this. If your event calls for a comedy juggling performance, watch amazed as Barney Bay juggles balls, clubs, fire, knives and even an ironing-board! In 1992 Barney won the five-club juggling endurance event at the prestigious European Convention; he's also been the British Juggling Champion in 1999 and 2000.

Previous clients and venues include: British Airways, Dubai Tennis Club, Geneva Polo Club, J.P. Morgan Chase, Lexmark, Lloyds TSB, Mercedes, Microsoft, Motorola, Premier Cruises, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Shell, Siemens, Thomson Holidays and Williams-Renault, as well as countless Military and University Balls.

"As usual this year we have had nothing but excellent feedback, and a constant supply of rebookings." - GREAT WESTERN ENTERTAINMENTS AGENCY

"Your performances were one of the highlights of the Ball, and your professionalism and helpfulness at all times were much appreciated." - DAVE PRIMOST, TRINITY COLLEGE

You'll remember Barney Bay's Comedy Juggling Cabaret for years - who else for instance juggles razor-sharp knives whilst balancing an ironing-board on their chin?
Juggler Barney Bay's unique cabaret also includes fire-eating, laser-juggling, balloon-modeling, diabolo and club routines, knife-juggling on a tall unicycle, and generous helpings of comedy and audience-participation. Barney is equally at home presenting the above as a short but stunning cabaret choreographed to music, or as a fifty-minute comedy-juggling extravaganza enlivened with hilarious audience participation.

The cabaret- juggler show requires a minimum floor-to-ceiling height of nine foot / three metres (fire-eating subject to venue suitability), or can be presented outdoors weather permitting.
"Barney Bay is the Juggler Extraordinaire. Balls, clubs and hoops fly through the air with a speed and dexterity that is truly mind-boggling." - JOY DAVID, THE STAGE

"Magicians are not always the easiest of audiences but it was a terrific show and I have heard praise all round" - ALAN SHAXON, THE INNER MAGIC CIRCLE

To save you the trouble of booking separate Corporate entertainers for different parts of your evening event, Barney can include one or all of the following in his entertainment schedule, tailored if necessary to your event theme. So whether you're after a stilt-walker to greet your guests, a balloon-entertainer to perform through dinner, an amazing cabaret act or even all three of these, Barney Bay is your man - complete entertainment for the whole evening!
STILT-WALKER: As your guests arrive for an evening reception, stilt-walker Barney will entertain them as a nine-foot tall Black-Tie-Doorman juggling with laser-clubs, or if the event calls for it as a colourful Jester or fire-eater.

BALLOONOLOGY: Enchanting entertainment for your guests as they enjoy a cocktail reception or through dinner - and tailor-made for Corporate Functions and evening events. Barney will twist any animal, musical instrument or other balloon shape your guest can come up with, as well as an array of colourful balloon-hats.

CABARET ENTERTAINER: Why not include a pre- or after-dinner comedy-juggling cabaret in your evening's programme?

THEMED EVENTS: Official Jester of Bournemouth Barney Bay will happily tailor his strolling entertainment to fit most themes. Evening and Corporate Event themes have to date included Medieval Jester, James Bond, Horror, Shakespearian, French, Christmas, 70's, and Gold.

"YOU HAVE ABSOLUTELY MADE OUR BALL. The variety of the package ensured that you were both spectacular and extremely popular, as well as perfectly tailored to our theme." - TIM BODDY, BRASENOSE COLLEGE OXFORD

"Thank you so much for your efforts with our Summer Party. We have had excellent feedback, and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening" - PAUL KNOX, PRICE WATERHOUSE COOPERS

Smart, colourful, and equally at home entertaining children or adults, entertainer Barney Bay is the perfect man to bring a smile and a laugh to all family events, indoors or out. Armed with a vast repertoire of zany circus skills, and to save you the trouble of booking four separate circus performers, Barney is happy to perform as stilt-walker, juggler and balloon-modeler for your event, and can even run a circus workshop too!
COMEDY JUGGLING SHOW: laugh and be amazed! The show includes fire- juggling, unicycles, diabolos launched high into the air, five-club juggling and more, with plenty of comedy entertainment and audience participation. For large audiences and arena shows, Barney brings a small battery-powered amplifier and microphone, so the show is suitable for up to several hundred people.

STILT-WALKER: Look up. Look out! Here comes stilt-walker Barney as a nine-foot tall Jester or Juggler.

BALLOON-MODELLER: as well as twisting all the usual animals (and some unusual ones too!), family entertainer Barney Bay will fill your event with a huge array of colourful balloon-hats, aeroplanes, guitars and motorbikes. I also love to accept balloon-twisting challenges.

CIRCUS WORKSHOPS: for children age 6+ (and fun-loving adults) to try their hand at being a circus performer, with juggling, plate-spinning, diabolo, stilts and more. Suitable for up to thirty children at once in a Hall or marquee, or outdoors in a marked-off area.

"I wish to thank you most sincerely for your excellent performance. You were talented, colourful, hugely professional, and kept everyone amused for hours." - FERNDOWN MILLENIUM ASSOCIATION
"Despite the weather you donned your stilts and drew a huge crowd every time you performed. Please come back again next year!" - BEAULIEU VICTORIAN CHRISTMAS EVENING

ABRACADABRA! With an endless repertoire of zany jokes, magic and circus skills, Barney Bay is the perfect entertainer for children of all ages. Younger children love Barney's colourful magic show and slapstick comedy, while older children delight as they assist Barney in his crazy antics and become part of the circus extravaganza.
Bournemouth-based children's entertainer Barney Bay has performed for playgroups, schools, Holiday Centres and children's Birthday Parties along the South Coast since barely out of childhood himself. Firmly established as a children's favourite in Dorset, Barney became the Bournemouth Children's Entertainer of the Year in 2002 and 2003, and was appointed the Official Jester of Bournemouth in 1999.

Barney's colourful show includes magic, balloon animals, juggling, plate-spinning, yoyo, diabolo, unicycling, and oodles of fun and participation. Children are reduced to hysterics as Barney muddles and struggles through his party, but don't worry kids - he usually gets it right in the end!

Enhanced Police check and Public liability insurance.

"The children thoroughly enjoyed your fun, games and tricks, as indeed did the adults present. To provide entertainment for nearly ninety children of varying ages for two and a half hours was some feat, but you managed it with children laughing and enjoying themselves." - CORFE CASTLE MILLENIUM ASSOC.

"Thank you for coming to my birthday party . It was fun. I loved it best when you fell off the funny bike." - NAOMI AGE 5

Barney is based in Bournemouth on the South Coast of England, and usually work within a 100 mile radius i.e. as far as Exeter, Bristol, Oxford, London, Brighton. Occasionally he'll travel further afield or even abroad.
