About us – Circus performer meets Special effects wizard
We are Nikki and Tim Kennett, the husband and wife team behind the creation of The Show Globe. With 20 years of event entertainment experience in a huge variety of settings, from circus and street theatre to film, celebrity weddings and corporate events, we are consummate professionals. Together we launched The Show Globe in 2016. Its popularity and success quickly snowballed (excuse the pun!).
What do we do for events?
We both share a passion for attention to detail, to make every performance a special and magical experience for the audience. Our goal is to wow and we definitely deliver. The Show Globe acts are so unique that they have an immediate impact on spectators, a wow factor, a talking point, it’s big, visual and oh so camera phone friendly. When it glides into an event space it stops people in their tracks. That’s what drives us, our passion is to entertain, to create memories, to mystify and most importantly, to make people smile. To be that one completely unique experience that stands out in people’s memories at all the events we perform at.
Where did the idea come from?
The concept of The Show Globe, which is the only one of its kind in the world, was initially dreamed up by Nikki, after sustaining a significant injury during an acrobatics performance which meant needing to retire from being a professional acrobat of 17 years.
Lengthy surgery recovery times gave plenty of time to think outside the box regarding a less physical new performance to work. The Show Globe was born. You can read the full story behind this here.
Tim stepped in to complete this family project. Tim has many years’ experience as a pyrotechnic and show technician. His dedicated work ethic and ability to both maintain the technical elements of the acts as well as guide them safely through crowds is invaluable. He’s also the friendly face that event organisers liaise with on the day whilst Nikki is busy transforming!
“Your beautiful performances at the Rendez-Vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta in Woolwich and Greenwich had everyone transfixed.”
