Why a LegoWalk at a Firewalk?

A child plays barefoot among a large assortment of colorful lego bricks scattered on the floor.

One of the challenges of running a firewalk, especially a charity firewalk, is that it involves so many families…  and with families come kids… and kids always want to firewalk too. The age of someone allowed to firewalk is a hotly contested issue within the community and I’ll do a separate post on that in […]

Feedback from the Miserden School 2024 Firewalk… Target SMASHED!

A group of people standing on grass with raised arms, cheering in front of a line of fire on the ground during sunset.

‘The build up to the walk was amazing. I really did let go of the things that make me feel unworthy, rasped the challenges ahead and channeled my inner warrior. An absolutely fabulous experience! I never thought I would walk on fire, but I did! I now feel stringer than ever. Thank you!’

What Was The Firewalk Experience Like For RainbowHub?

From the first telephone chat with Chris, I was confident that we were in very safe hands! His communication pre and post event has been exceptional. He has answered numerous questions quickly and been happy to share advice and tips and support our event promotion even being interviewed on local radio on the day he moved home!

Walking Fire For SEED And Rasing Record Breaking Amounts!

A person walks barefoot over a path of burning coals with visible flames at night.

My charity, SEED, was looking to put on a sponsored firewalk for our annual fundraising campaign. Having spoken to a number of potential providers, I was convinced to go with Chris and the Firewalking Experience due to Chris’ obvious experience, professionalism and passion for the firewalk.

Do We Need Training Before We Can Firewalk?

Yes. 100% you will need training before you can firewalk, and also you will need to sign a waiver too. My personal preference is for half a day’s training (going into the evening), which works very well for small, tight knit groups with a single focus. For broader charity style events, the ninety minutes between lighting the fire and walking the fire is a perfect length for the training.

Who is in your fire crew? What do they do?

Our firewalks have two distinct teams. Firstly, the in-room team for the training. That’s usually the person leading the seminar plus one person running the tech behind the scenes. Second, outside there is a second team, preparing the ground, the fire and making sure everything remains safe. This is the fire crew, also know as firetenders.

Will my feet get burned or will I get blisters from a firewalk? What are FireKisses?

People gathered around a large bonfire at dusk, with sparks flying into the air against a twilight sky.

Yes, you could get a firekiss. And if you walk fire more than once at our event, and we will encourage that, the chances will increase. We often make the firewalk longer with each round, increasing the odds of a firekiss. Also, putting embers on top of embers will of course make the firewalk hotter too. So yes, each time you walk, it will likely get longer and hotter and odds of a firekiss increase.
