To all Artistes and Artists from Safehaven Directory. We offer world-wide promotion but PLEASE SUPPORT THIS NATIONAL CHARITY.

Artistes United has been designed to forward factual knowledge in the best easy way about all visual art, usually referred to as; Speciality acts, to include of course comedians, vocalists, bands dancers and groups. These are very unique in the sense that it is their individual ideals to train and try out new exciting routines that is the real science and art that make them the great performers they are. We feel these acts of wonder be they in Variety, Circus or Cabaret are not, perhaps, fully appreciated for the skills risks and effort involved. All are part of Variety or what is termed ‘Light Entertainments.’ Personally we would like to see more visual performers, as we feel the wider public would like to see more of such acts on television in particular. The world offers still the greatest of such acts and some of these we have featured here. (Our personal charity link).

Other contents. Historical Photographs and memorabilia – educational sections. We are proud to publish the past one hundred years of the Richard Sandow family circus -variety acts.

We think the public is interested in quickly and easily locating the past history of the finest Variety stage acts and performers so we would like to thank the British Music Hall Society (listed) for supplying such wonderful old Variety theatre poster memorabilia . Some, as you see, featuring the 1950s Sandow family Variety acts, one week with Peter Sellers. We do hope you enjoy all the fabulous artistes placed here to inspire thought and knowledge about great skills from the past and current. To all Show and Stage enthusiasts, why not send to us your special favourite? You will be thanked and credited. This should be a contact website as much as promotional one. Schools! The Sandows Slapstick Theatre has played so many schools we have lost count! Head-teachers, do contact if you would like a discussion for the children about stage skills, performance, history – stage circus humour. We would be delighted to provide a talk. Reside Yorkshire area only.
