"The English Bobbies were an absolute hit with audiences! The performers were incredibly entertaining and engaging! Would highly recommend them for any event! World Class!"
Johanna Clark - The 2018 Commonwealth Games

"The Mask Family were a huge hit at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Public Viewing Events (Race Walk, Cycling Time Trial and Cycling Road Race).  Many of the spectators stopped the ‘tourists’ for happy snaps and enjoyed a chin wag, while the Lollypop Ladies had the crowds ‘laughing and hopping’ their way through the events, providing much entertainment for both the young and old (including myself)!" 
Jules Delemare - LOUD Events 

"We were looking for a way to liven up our local street parade and booked The Lollypop Ladies. The Lollypop ladies were a big hit with the crowds and added that perfect unique edge the parade was lacking. The performers generously went above and beyond to interact with the crowd and stopped for many photos after the parade, something we were incredibly grateful for. A pleasure to work with and artistically unique -I’d recommend this world-class troupe for any public event!"
Paul Smyth - Douglas Shire Council
