Health and Safety

There are certain circumstances and situations where we will not be able to work on a particular child or adult for health and safety implications as it is important for us to maintain protection to our public. We hope that you will trust our judgment knowing that we wish to ensure the protection of each and every one of our customers and also our products.

Mimicks maintain a high standard of work with quality staff, professional products and follow a strict code of practice. We will arrive at your venue ready to perform, fully equipped and insured with £5million public liability and £10million employers liability, and all artistes have a basic disclosure CRB.

The water make-up products (face paints) that we use are professional theatre make-up which contain an anti-bacterial agent that helps to prohibit the multiplication of micro-orgaisms. We also uphold the policy of using a fresh sponge per person.
