Oxford Union Gatsby Party




I couldn't resist posting about this amazing event this weekend. The Oxford University Student Union Ball. It was Great Gatsby themed and myself and Johnny performed alongside some of our team- the stunning red feathered showgirls, our lovely stilt walking aerialist and our amazing across duo (picture right)


We arrived in the city of Oxford and its narrow cobblestone streets to find the Oxford Union tucked away and alongside the beautiful building itself a large marquee. The marquee had a huge stage at one end with enough instruments for a twenty piece band (turns out thats what they had!), it was beautifully decorated in Art Deco style and a huge ice bar carved into the Great Gatsby Logo was situated to one side.

The showgirls graced the red carpet entrance welcoming guests as they arrived whilst out stilt walking team posed for photos in the main building and marquee. I performed Gatsby themed LED outside in the courtyard as guests made their way over the marquee. The jazz band was soon in full swing and it was showtime, Johnny opened the show with sword swallowing followed by the incredible aerialist and finishing with the jaw-dropping acro duo. The guests seemed to love the show and we loved performing for them.


The brilliant video above wasn't staged, as our videographer took a welcoming shot this prankster did an expert video bomb and is now hopefully a legend. This was lots of fun, we hope to come back Oxford!
