Popular with children and adults alike, our stilt characters are instantly recognisable. An array of larger than life comedic characters awaits – all of them friendly and witty and can’t help but amuse with their colour, exuberance and charm.

Stilt walking has been at the heart of Nutkhut’s creative vision for a decade, a skill they embraced for its unique ability to enchant and disarm audiences, irrespective of age or background. 

If performance is an exaggeration of real life then stilt walking acts as a natural amplifier. Effortlessly comedic, celebratory and unpretentious it is an art form that has existed for millennia yet still resonates with contemporary audiences by injecting an iconic twist into the everyday and familiar.

Meet the Nutkhut stilt-walking family...

Take the arresting presence of policeman Captain Mumbai, who gives a whole new meaning to the long arm of the law.

The Princesses may be draped in stunning jewels and silks, but don’t expect these down-to-earth divas not to have an eye for high street bargains and cute boys amongst charmed and chuckling crowds.

The Three Kings are a reimagining of the Christmas fable with a uniquely Nutkhut twist, bringing frivolity to the road to Bethlehem.

Meanwhile, The Maharajahs are the authentic Indian princes of posing, only ever out-blinged by The DJs, musical superstars (in their own bedrooms) who are the life and soul of any party with their uber-cool Bhangra beats.

“It was very exciting working with Nutkhut's Princesses. They were a key part of Oxfam in creating awareness about our far reaching initiatives and are wonderful ambassadors!”

Kalyani Ghandi-Rhodes, Oxfam

“These guys rock!”
