The Acrochaps in Southampton?! Oh yes! There really is nothing quite like Acrochaps and we were delighted to book them in for an event on the south coast.
There is one thing that excites those in Southampton more than anything else – the football. From The Dell to St. Mary’s, the Saints have always provided excitement, especially in the last two decades or so when they have languished in the lower leagues before rising like a phoenix to establish themselves as a Premier League club once more.
Many football clubs are able to host private and corporate events as well as weddings(!) and stag or hen parties. Imagine our delight when we were contacted by a client to provide some entertainment on the pitch to a small group of guests. What could be better than the Acrochaps in Southampton doing their thing?
A circus act unlike any other, Acrochaps style themselves as vintage circus strongmen. Able to wear virtually any costume, they are most often seen in their classic striped leotard so it was a bit of a thrill to see them perform for a short while in Southampton in their vintage football persona. Naturally they also posed for photos; is this what a former Southampton player might have looked like?
The Acrochaps thrill with not only their acrobatic abilities but also their hilarious ‘gentlemen’ personalities. It is hard to meet them without taking in their impressively combed moustaches and falling victim to their deliberate use of innuendo. It’s all harmless but great fun.
As for the performance itself, it is everything we have come to expect from this wonderful circus trio. The ‘chaps delivered their astonishing acrobalance act with ease and, as ever, got a few people from the audience involved as well. Part circus, part comedy, all entertainment.
We had a brilliant time with the Acrochaps in Southampton and cannot wait to book them for their next event. If you would like to enquire about their availability, please do so using the contact details below.
