Booked the carts for our Showman Circus themed staff party and they went down really well. Our team loved the choices of strange and wonderful flavours but the real difference was that you'd often see the team on stilts, juggling and that really added value for us. We would definitely book again.

How long do you do your thing for?
Our standard session lasts for 2 hours, we find this is normally more than adequate. Depending on which package you have ordered, we will need time to set up beforehand and take down afterwards. If you would like us for longer please let us know and we will work out a bespoke cost for you.
What is your power spec and what do we need to provide for you?
Our candy floss machine runs at 220v - 900w power output, 13 amp. Our popcorn cart runs at 220v - 1370w power output, 13 amp.

Can you still operate in bad weather at outdoor events?
Wherever possible we need to be placed under cover and this can be discussed upon booking. Candy floss is not much fun in the rain as it melts when there is dampness in the air – it’s also very difficult to make nice big candy flosses in windy weather. If operating outside we strongly recommend you check the weather report and where possible place us under shelter as an extra precaution against summer showers. We can only operate on an even, flat surface.
