Loz Because

Loz Because

Loz Because, Compère extraordinairre. After many many many many (hey! not that many) years of training, dedication, meditation and levitation, she has absolutely mastered the art of walking and talking at the same time. An incredible skill to behold. Loz does other stuff too, like spin a hulahoop, sing (badly) and sit on chairs (badly - you have to see this to believe it. She killed a man once*, but that's another story).

*Don't worry, she didn't really.

Edd Muir

An acclaimed Chinese Pole Acrobat who has performed internationally, Edd Muir perfectly merges physical prowess with comedy.

His acts delight audiences in settings ranging from CBBC's The Slammer to Glastonbury Festival and present an ancient Chinese tradition with a vaudeville slant.
