Lucy Hopkins is a show-off and an award-winning clown, director, creative consultant, workshop leader, High Priestess of Idiot and clever person. She makes a magical living growing people’s pleasure (inc. her own) and helping them (and herself) to share it.
She tours her award-winning spectacles and uplifting workshops in English and French versions around the UK, Europe and on Zoom too. She contributes to other peoples' projects too in all sorts of ways, collaborating with fantastic performers, companies, directors and creative humans of all kinds to help bring their excellent ideas into the world.
The foundation of all of her work is her full-hearted belief that people are tremendous.
You are too, probably. You should call her.
CEREMONY OF GOLDEN TRUTH
Ceremonial mess-about led by everybody's favourite clown-witch-deity.
Very golden, mostly truthful. Sacred as holy hell.
★★★★ ‘Hopkins is utterly present… an otherworldly vision in gold… in this extraordinary transformative happening, which leaves its audience with a deep feeling of peace’ Scotsman
★★★★★ ‘Outstandingly original… Lucy Hopkins is a golden-goddess revelation in this extraordinary power hour of one woman’s improvisation and the healing power of comedy’ ToDoList
(Au Sujet Des Femmes Puissantes)
A Vibrational Revolution of Being channeled by a Goddess. Part electro-ritual, part theremin-experiment, part light-fantastic. Ultra-conscious comedy by award-winning, internationally-touring, terribly present clown. Come as you are. Leave transformed.
"…an extraordinary show …a wonderful experience" Scotsman
"…takes femininity and turns it into the most spiritual, enchanting and indeed: powerful of phenomena…" Ed Fringe Review
A retelling of a telling of a telling,
via the kitchen table of inspired witch Mia Mohr,
from the wizard mind of eco-philosopher Mohammed Taleb,
and with special thanks to creative lunatic Petra Massey.
Le Foulard (Art Show)
Starring a medley of characters, overwhelmed by a love of a show-stopping song and performed by a woman and a scarf, this, Ladies and Gentlemen, is an Art Show, made with love by an idiot.

All the info
People are beautiful. Definitely.
And, for the most part, total idiots.
What if, instead of trying to hide that, we embraced it?
There’s a whole world of beautiful performance to
be made if we connect our magnificent inner idiot, accept the moment, take a risk, leap after an impulse and surf the ridiculous wave of our own preposterous glory. Why not.
In these workshops we play lots of games, laugh at each other, laugh harder at ourselves and get some great insight into who we are as performers and the incredible potential to be found in working with what we’ve got.
