Brilliantly Diverse, Mischievous and Expertly Coherent

The Scotsman, Edinburgh Festival Fringe

I would employ the Chipolatas at the drop of a hat, and think they are fantastic artists with a global feel that works brilliantly for audiences. Not only are they easy to work with but they create fabulous shows suitable for all ages and venues. They cover the spectrum, so combined with a powerhouse of talent that makes them highly appealing.

Susannah Sweeney, Programming Executive, Adelaide Festival Centre

The Chipolatas are a stand out act for many reasons – they are extremely entertaining, professional at all times on and off stage, doing their utmost to ensure that everything goes according to plan, which is no doubt one of the many reasons that they are in such high demand all across the world today.

Calinda Anderson, Entertainment Director, Perth Royal Show

The Chipolatas happily mix acrobatics, comedy, theatre, music and dance.
They also speak in English, Spanish, gibberish and even in Finnish!
Their lovely old-fashioned way combines with the energetic present.

KUULAS International Children’s Theatre Festival, Finland

The Chipolatas are a no-brainer booking: audiences love them and we love having them around, simple. It's always a joy to see the sheer delight of a thousand people beaming, as the show gives a disproportionate amount of pleasure. And think of the numbers… I can’t even begin to calculate how many people must have shared their company over the years. Hundreds of thousands. Amazing!

Angus MacKechnie, Outdoor Arts UK

Thank you for such impressive performances. My son with autism adored your show and so did his sister. Thank you for bringing communities together and for keeping live theatre alive and amazing!
Wonderful to see you blending circus skills, awesome music & lots of heart! ❤

Great act - an interesting mix of juggling, humour, 80's cliches, folk music and drum n' bass which mashes together so well!
