The Show Globe was dreamed up and launched by Nikki Kennett.
This unique, beautiful and slightly crazy creation was initially born out of necessity as well as imagination.
Nikki had spent the previous 20 years performing and touring internationally as an acrobalance flier, predominantly in the outdoor arts & cabaret sectors. During the final season with her show Strictly Dumb Prancing, Nikki sustained a significant ankle injury and was subsequently forced to think outside the box. She was determined to come up with an act that would accommodate her injury discreetly and still allow her to perform in the
outdoor arts world she so loved, continuing to spread smiles and mischief.
The Show Globe was created. After dreaming so big it was apparent that this act would need its own technician and steward. Luckily, Nikki's husband Tim stepped in to complete this family project. Tim has many years experience as a pyrotechnic and show technician for BrightFX. In fact Nikki and Tims’ eyes had first met over wiring fireworks together 12 years previously! Working together like a well oiled machined, this team of two can build and dismantle this one of a kind structure in a matter of hours to help it reach audiences in all kinds of venues. Tim has mastered the art of discreetly guiding the Show Globe safely through the densest of crowds with only the tiniest of signals between them.
Loving the adventures and international road trips that performing this creation entails, long journeys home are spent sharing stories of the gorgeous reactions from the crowds. Tim is always dreaming up new designs and characters for the interior with Nikki trying to keep up with his vivid imagination! These two are passionate about creating the atmosphere of magic, to really transport everyone that comes across the Show Globe to that special place of mystery and enchantment.
