"I would like to recommend High Performance for their excellent management and effective and efficient
activities undertaken at our Arup Office. Before the job was undertaken the scope of the task, the
associated Health and Safety requirements and all of the associated competencies of the team were
clarified with us.
Throughout the installation the team maintained an excellent standard, which also entailed ensuring all
of the smaller companies associated with the project worked in accordance with the high standards
Bryan Donaldson and his team laid down.
The company was so good that we have already invited them back to work on another task in Arup and I
would have no problem in highly recommending them to you".
Director of Health and Safety
Working with High Performance Productions is always a joy, and often a relief!
Beyond their rigging expertise, their real value comes from a high level of empathy with the artistic
needs of a project. The creative solutions offered by High Performance on being presented with either a
specific brief or a loose set of criteria means they're a great team to get involved early on in a design
Over the years they've provided me rigging, performers, creative input (above and beyond that of any
other company), safety services and advice - sometimes with very short notice - all of which have been
second to none.

"A huge thank you for providing such incredible acts for us, they really were all so superb and much
admired. I hope that I get enquiries about how I found them so that I can refer on to you! Well done
for being such an inspiring young company".

On behalf of Royal Shakespeare Company & Michael Boyd’s Olivier Award wining “The Histories” I would
like to thank High Performance Rigging for their enterprising integrity, total commitment &
The aerial care taken of the acting company & the training of the technicians was absolutely exemplary. I
look forward to working with you again in the very near future.

(Helen Skelton, Battersea Power station High Wire - COMIC RELIEF)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you from all of us here at Blue Peter - and CBBC - for everything that
you did to make Monday's event, and all of Helen's overall training, such a huge triumph!
I don't really know where to start, but perhaps Bryan, all at High Performance and the riggers are a good
place, since without you, it would have - literally - fallen down. Quite how you manage to put wires
where you do, I really don't know, but I was so grateful for your diligence, attention to detail, accuracy
(all those loadings and so on), agility at heights and not least your creativity in solving problems.
Bryan, you in particular were calm and patient and good-humoured throughout, not least during that
difficult phase when we seemed to throw you a new UK location almost every week.

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM
High Performance are a production company whom we have worked with here at the museum helping to
produce some of the best aerial dance displays for events. They provide trussing and produce the shows
to an impeccable standard. Working within a stringent time restriction of a maximum of 1 ½ hours they
are a leader in their industry and have a great understanding for the logistics needed to work at the
museum and for health and safety standards.
High Performance are preferred suppliers for this type of effect at the museum and I have no
reservations in recommending them. The service provided is always professional and efficient.
I would be more than happy for a representative to contact me if any further information is required.
Operations Manager – Conference’s and Event
Natural History Museum
High Performance have been my riggers of choice for many years and I have worked with them on
countless shows, events and parties in that time. In terms of rigging they are the only company I would
work with, they are creative in their approach and efficient and thorough in their execution.
High Performance are also excellently placed to recommend and place leading international circus artists
and are great programmers themselves for the cabaret and corporate events market. I wouldn't hesitate
in recommending them to any future client.
The Roundhouse, London
Dear High Performance Productions,
I am writing to thank you for your amazing performance at the Roundhouse in Camden.
The night was a huge success and could not have been so without the stunning performance that you
put on. All the guests very much enjoyed your acrobatics and the feedback we have had since the event
has been nothing but positive.
