Curiosity is aroused by the arrival of two characters with a box. Despite his size, one manages to climb in and shut the lid. Suddenly the box leaps into life, grows legs and totters off. Carefully guided by his companion, the box then meets and greets and plays footsie with the amazed onlookers.

For Christmas this walkabout is available as Man in a Christmas Present and scuttles around looking for someone to give it a good festive season.  

The box can be themed and branded for particular themed events and a special variation of this act, Man in a Football, is also available.

Safe & Accessible

This act, along with every other act on our website, is expert in adapting to a variety of performance settings, including during the constrictions of the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic.

The performances will be tailored to the event and location to ensure that all interactions are socially distanced without compromising the joy and spectacle.
