Speaking Lampposts


“Live Entertainment” installation. The SPEAKING LAMPPOSTS are as hilarious as they are original.

These two very English Lampposts like to get involved in other people’s love lives, share opinions on fashion and get some affection – even inanimate objects have feelings you know!

Don’t look the other way when the unexpected happens, stop and have a chat with the Lampposts, get to know them and before you know what has happened, you will be part of the magical world of laughter, dancing and love. The Lampposts desire to show the people of the world how to have a more silly and spontaneous life.

Don’t be offended if David and Victoria (The Lampposts, yes they have names) have something to say about your fashion sense, they are just jealous because you get to wear clothes. They are also attempting to learn German, so feel free to give them a hand with their terrible accents and their mixed up grammar – it will give you a change to have a laugh at them too.

The Lampposts are sweet, rude, charming, honest and very funny. They look forward to saying something about you, or to you as you pass them by.

If you want something unique, new and inspiring for your festival or event, try the Lampposts; you really won’t be disappointed.

“The Talking Lampposts were absolutely amazing, such a clever concept and the crowds loved them.” Luisa LaFornara Geelong After Dark Festival.

The Lampposts are two metal objects that are stationary and require no power. They run from batteries so no cables!

They are operated remotely by two actors who are situated so as to be able to see all the same passing traffic. The actors are disguised as normal people. The Lampposts have two way speakers and microphones in them so the actors can talk and hear what is going on around them. They are also able to play pre-recorded music and sound effects and have interactive light features, knobs and buttons that can be played with when invited.

It is a blast, fun, unexpected and highly original live entertainment. Suitable for festivals, lane-way events, corporate events, food and wine events, agricultural shows and so much more!

    Hi Mark – thanks for your interest in the Lampposts – it really depends where you are, the dates, and how long each day you would like the act for (shhhhh … there are wonderful & busy live performers as part of this act), but I will send you an email with rough timings and costs shortly. Cheers Jen
