This wasn’t an action-heavy event, unlike some of our previous efforts. Still we managed to squeeze in a few of our trademark stunts. Kiera Gould-Thomas, who’s been doing this sort of thing for years, led our stunt team – there were a handful of sequences:

  • Kiera jumped from a first floor window for the Young Couple sequence.
  • Tom Butterworth played the Burned Man, and, as well as acting in front of gouts of flame, was dragged backwards at speed on pulleys through fake smoke and fire.
  • As one of our stooges Robin Gould was hanged by the neck until the players cut him down.
