Marvellous for Maritime and Seaside Events
About the Walkabout
Captain Bullock rides Polly, his temperamental giant parrot liable to cause mayhem anywhere within a 2 metre radius, on a quest for treasure, birdseed and romance.
Meranda, the gorgeous Mermaid, is a temptress in all her fishy glory. She rides a beautiful seahorse drawn chariot, spreading beauty tips and amorous looks on her continued quest to find and catch a handsome and largely unsuspecting sailor in her large shrimping net. Will the Captain fall for her ravishing beauty and scaly seductiveness?
What to expect
This is a stilt and drive-about chariot act with larger than life, visually stunning costumes and infectiously funny characters. The Captain and Mermaid move through the crowds stopping for selfies and introducing their fantastical creatures. Banter abounds as the notorious Polly wends her raucous way through the audience, creating laughter and havoc in her friendly parroty fashion. The chariot plays music and releases clouds of bubbles as they interact with the crowd in a playful and entertaining manner.
I’ve been fortunate to work with Bell & Bullock a few times over the years. Most recently, their wonderfully engaging “Pirates, Parrots, Sirens and Seahorses” act at our outdoor “Pirates of Crimdon Dene” event brought a lovely atmosphere with lots of comedy moments. I’d highly recommend this professional and talented duo – you won’t be disappointed
Thank you so much for being a part of beam! Everyone had so much fun; you really brought the city centre alight. You struck the right balance with the public; they loved your Mermaid and Parrot and were fascinated by your Flies! Lincoln had a great couple of days of street theatre and music and you played a significant part in the festival’s success!
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.
