WHAT WE DO
Trucked Up Entertainment deliver you circus and sideshow performers, with unique hire items and mobile circus stages for corporate and private events. We are an entertainment agency and production company rolled into one. All entertainment options are for hire and when we have a show on that we've produced, we'll tell you all about it.
We bring the circus to you, with options for any space, being it your backyard, a function room, nightclub or a large stage.
Trucked Up Entertainment stands out from your usual entertainment agency providers because we're fully involved in creating and producing custom feature acts, props, apparatus and costumes. We dare to go where other agencies do not, being fuelled by ideas and a love of hands-on creativity.
We have a long history of producing high quality entertainment solutions, from being an arts entertainment venue, directing and producing sell-out shows, managing outdoor festivals and even getting on stage ourselves. This is an all-encompassing approach to entertainment where we learn and practice by being in the thick of the industry.
Our affiliate business is Velodrome Events, running large scale arts, music, community and sport events at Coburg Velodrome, in support of the Coburg Cycling Club and in line with Moreland City Council's strategic goals. We work across all aspects of site management, from administration and permits, to traffic management, security, infrastructure, entertainment, Beveridge and food, sponsorship and site development projects. Events in 2019 have expanded to City of Yarra.
