Born in the deep south, Highly Flammable Ltd came into existence in the year 2010. It all started in Dunedin, where we worked hard to forge a professional brand through providing the best in creative entertainment. What started as a few small events has quickly become one of New Zealand’s most sought-after event entertainment providers with our wide range of products and ability to customise everything down to the smallest detail.
Coming from Dunedin, we’re not afraid of hard work, always pulling out all the stops for your event. You see, we care about your guests having the best stories, small or large event we’ll always deliver high quality diverse entertainment. For us it is this approach to events that sets us apart, we want to know everything about your event so we can offer the best experience possible.
To better service New Zealand we now have offices in Wellington, Auckland, and Christchurch to better provide for all of New Zealand.
When we started we had some basic services available for hire. Items such as stilt walkers, jugglers, statues – all with standard costuming.
Fast forward and we now have a huge customised product range, built on the premise or quality entertainment products that will bring joy, smiles, and general happiness to everyone we perform to. Something that we really wanted to focus on with Highly Flammable is bringing a corporate feel to our product range. This involves increasing the standard of dress before and after events, professional communication, and working closely with our clients to achieve what they want and adapting our services to fit. We pride ourselves in the high quality of our product, from design to deployment, we’re always fine tuning.
We believe that what we offer brings a spark to any event that can be dreamed up, and we’re here to fulfill the potential of anything that comes our way. So get in touch and we’ll bring you better event stories.
