[EN] "A large area of the country flooded almost yearly because of a river. Cut off from the outside world, the people could only reach the town centre while walking on stilts. During strong winters, they crossed on clogs or on large pieces of wood... The Royal Stiltwalkers performs on a wide range of events: Parades, Celebrations, Tattoos, Stilt Fights, Carnivals, Flowers Parades, Giants Parades, etc. The Stiltwalkers are preceded by flags, clog walkers and a vibrant marching band."

[RO] "O mare parte din ţară este inundată de un râu aproape anual. Izolaţi de restul lumii, oamenii puteau ajunge în centrul oraşului doar pe picioroange. În iernile grele, râul se traversează cu tălpici de lemn sau pe bucăţi mari de lemn.

The Royal Stiltwalkers joacă la o gamă variată de evenimente: parade, sărbători, Tattoo-uri, lupte pe picioroange, carnavaluri, parade ale florilor, parade ale giganţilor, etc. În faţa celor pe picioroange sunt stegarii, cei cu tălpici de lemn şi o fanfară care interpretează o muzică vibrantă. "
