If you’re planning an event, whether it’s a wedding celebration, a corporate party, a marketing launch or anything else, it’s important to be choosing the right entertainment. There are many choices available, and which is best will depend on what you want to get out of it, so here’s a quick guide to help you decide.

Choosing The Right Entertainment

An Elegant Affair


At an elegant wedding reception or corporate banquet, you won’t want loud and rowdy entertainment; you’ll be looking for something subtle that will help to create the right atmosphere. Live music is an excellent choice; you can hire musicians in to provide background music which can be pitched at the right level to entertain your guests without drowning out conversation. A harpist, pianist or even a string quartet, for example, would be ideal.You might also choose to hire a magician – they can circulate through the room and perform close-up tricks to amuse your guests on an intimate and friendly level.

A Straight-Up Party

Disco Lighting and Equipment

If you’re organizing the kind of event where you want your guests to get up on the dance floor, then you’re going to be looking at a different kind of music. You might consider hiring a mobile disco – you’ll get a talented DJ with a wide range of music, able to adjust their equipment to suit the space at your venue and take requests to ensure that your guests’ tastes are catered to. If you prefer live music, then there are plenty of tribute bands for hire who provide all the excitement of the real thing at a fraction of the price tag – after all, not many could afford to book the real Lady Gaga!

A Full-Blown Spectacle

Fire Juggler

If you really want people to talk about your event, then you may be looking for something really impressive; a “big box” illusionist show, fire performers, samba dancers – the list is practically endless!

For a real VIP touch, you can even hire a celebrity – ideal for awards ceremonies, promotional events and many other events.
