Children's entertainer, Circus performer, Magician and Medieval Jester, Cambridge.
Devilstick Peat isn't just a children's entertainer. He's a great all round circus entertainer who's skills as a magician and comic juggler have been used by medieval festivals, banquets, country shows and all types of events for years. His performances at birthday parties in the Cambridge area are second to none and when it comes to weddings, his close up magic, mixed with his unique sense of humour will both amaze and amuse everyone, regardless of age. His circus skills workshops are famed for being as successful at festivals and fairs as they are at birthday parties, schools and guide /scouts meetings (where we pride ourselves on getting whole packs through their circus skills badge). Whether you're looking for a stage or close up magician in Cambridge, a circus skills workshop, juggler or children's entertainer in Cambridge and the surrounding areas, regardless of whether its a small or large event for family or public, always book the best, book Devilstick Peat.
We have had the pleasure of having DEVILSTICK PEAT perform for England's Medieval Festival at Herstmonceux Castle for over 20 years. He is not only the best jester in the UK, but he always thoroughly entertains and engages his audiences of all ages, no matter whether it is during his scheduled shows or impromptu walk-about. We would highly recommend him for any event, as long as it doesn't clash with ours :)
Jonathan Geisler Event Director
I run an event at a medieval castle that has hired Peat since its inception. The man just never stops entertaining, from his actual shows through to the entire duration of the event, he is witty, down to earth and a genuine pleasure to be around. Laugh ? My ribs ache at the end of each day, no matter how much mead I imbibe to dull the pain !!! He is that joyous mixture of the consummate professional and a genuine comic genius, and just to top it all off he is a really nice guy! Kind of annoying really, one wishes he was merely human and exhibited some kind of flaw; maybe he snores?

A one man festival. The star of our show every year. When he says he’s a Complete Fool, he’s not kidding.
Maurice Bacon Owner of the Loxwood Joust Medieval Festival
Devilstick Peat performed during our wedding breakfast and entertained a group of children as well as our adult guests. He was an absolute hit, entertaining our guests as they entered the dining room and then going around all the tables doing mix and mingle. Everyone was smiling and laughing and Peat added to the fun, celebratory vibe of our wedding. Peat then entertained the kids during the speeches, this was ideal as parents could relax and the kids didn't have to stay quiet. We heard laughter from the kids in the next room and after the speeches they wanted more! They loved it and have been talking about it ever since!
We cannot recommend Devilstick Peat highly enough; if you're after a talented, fun entertainer then he's the one! Just brilliant!

I have been running Medieval Festivals since 2005, and the first person whose availability I check for any new show is Devilstick Peat. I look forward to many more years working with Devilstick Peat, undoubtedly England’s finest fool.

Peat worked miracles with a 'special needs' class of adults in Canterbury College back in the 1980. To see a couple of them demonstrating their new plate-spinning skills to the rather jealous college vice-principle was a tonic for them and for me. Thanks again, you are a saint
