Fantastic shows by The Yorkshire Medieval Performer at Goodrich Castle. Diablo, juggling, fire eating and fire breathing. Simple superb performances for children and adults

Andrew Lewis, Goodrich Castle, Corporate Event (August 2018)

Brilliant performance in a great setting - He worked the challenging wind direction (hope the chest wasn't too singed!) and interactive crowd. Kept our party of teens entertained and talking about the performance. Really pleased we broke our journey west at Goodrich Castle and caught the Yorkshire Medieval Performer!

Aijay Dee, Goodrich Castle, Corporate Event (August 2018)

We had a fab day at old Sarum today. Second time we've seen you there this year- Brilliant! Even our moody teens cracked a smile. Thank you!

Fabulous show at Osborne House today, Rob was very funny and engaged well with the whole audience. Very entertaining for young and old(er).

Nicola Chastney, Osborne House, Corporate Event (June 2018)

Such a fab show at Old Sarum. worth the entry fee on its own! My daughter looked at me and said – “so how do I make this my job?” So you are inspiring twenty somethings to eat fire!

Georgi Fancett, Old Sarum, Corporate Event (July 2018)

We were all entertained in the middle of a pretty grotty day in the rain at Osborne House today. From fantastic fire breathing to impromptu juggling and witch trials. Rob was both witty and engaging in what must have been less than ideal circumstances. Our kids loved the show and he dealt very well with my son’s amazingly inaccurate throwing which seemed to encourage a “who can throw the club furthest from Rob” competition amongst the other children helping the event. Thanks and good luck. We hope to see you again.

Simon Tams, Osborne House, Corporate Event (June 2018)

Brilliant show, well done. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, thank you!

Always the best reason to go to Wrest Park always funny to watch

John Rosmini , April 2016, Corporate Event (Wrest Park )

I caught The Yorkshire Medieval Performer at Carisbrooke Castle. Having worked in the entertainment industry I can honestly say the fire show was one of the best acts of its kind I have ever seen. He was funny, entertaining and so at ease with the audience. There was something for children and adults alike and I would highly recommend him for any event. He was highly respectful of our site and took health and safety seriously, a complete professional from start to finish!
