When not doing all of this Karen has a keen interest in Holistic therapies and yoga.
Dafe likes to make stuff and mix music and they both share a love of swing dancing, laughter and travelling.
It is always an absolute pleasure to work with Bell and Bullock (aka Karen and Dafe). As a dynamic partnership they offer a diverse range of characters, interactions and skills to suit a broad mix of audiences and events which works well for us across all of our activities and programmes.
Bell & Bullock provided our school with an interesting and vibrant workshop, allowing students to try lots of new activities whilst developing many skills such as teamwork and risk-taking. They were well organised, professional and friendly and our students responded extremely well to them. I look forward to seeing them again in the future!
Bell and Bullock are a fantastical duo that keeps audiences of all ages amused, inspired and captivated. The creative concepts, costumes, personalities and performances are unique and inventive. They are also both professional and dependable.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the wonderful clowning and physical theatre workshop that you delivered at Rye Hills School… Your enthusiasm and energy was infectious; our students really responded and both students and staff involved enjoyed the experience! Thanks again, we hope to book Bell & Bullock again in the future!
Bell and Bullock have collaborated with artist, maker and costume designer Barbara Agar of Bravura on many projects. This has helped to shape the visually stunning style of their strolling creations. More recently they have also worked with makers Rosie Bristow and Diane Guy.
