Would highly recommend this act!!! They attended the summer fair at our nursing home and the show was loved by everyone. Both young and old were at the event and all in between and all of them said how much they loved it and the response even from those who cannot verbally communicate and those with dementia was very positive thank you very very much for making our day more special.

We were delighted with Captain Jackdaw and Rumbucket. They arrived well before time for our event, and we had a wonderful whip cracking, bed of mails and then fire dance display. They were also very flexible and professional with our timings and other entertainers. They also helped to light and organise our guests to help us all light the bonfire in a safe and inclusive way. If you want someone to help enhance your event and work with you then this is the team for you.

They helped me out last minute and were fantastic...travelling miles from Sheffield. The kids loved them. We had a great opening event for the play area we had just put in. I would certainly recommend them to anyone.

So Captain Jackdaw and the very amazing Rumbucket came to do a fire performance last weekend at my daughter's wedding on a farm near Matlock. It was a surprise for the bride and groom and was awesome! The event was very entertaining performed skillfully by an enthusiastic, friendly, slightly bonkers team :) They turned up in good time, prepared and performed on cue. The booking process involved several friendly accomodating email exchanges whereby I was confident that it would be a successful surprise and show, as it was. The cost was most reasonable, especially compared to other quotes I had received. I would definately book them again and highly recommend them. Thankyou Captain Jackdaw and Rumbucket for finishing off the wedding day entertainment in such a special way Janine Russell
