How to source great entertainment for your events 

When it comes to organising events, entertainment can often be overlooked. Entertainment is a great way to make an impact on your guests, however, and doesn’t need to be expensive to be effective. These are our top tips for sourcing the right entertainment for your events.

Have a goal

Think about your audience demographic and what you are trying to achieve with your entertainment before you book something. Bands and DJ’s are always great choices for evening events, but there are many other different types of evening entertainment that can wow your guests and be just as effective from magicians to dancers. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.

Follow your theme

Most events have some kind of theme and sourcing entertainment to suit your theme can be effective. If the audience can sense a connection between the theme and the entertainment it will heighten their experience and make the event more engaging.

Work within your budget

Entertainment budgets can easily run away with you, so make sure you have a rough idea of budget before you start searching for entertainment. The best entertainment isn’t always the most expensive. For example, photo booths have become popular entertainment choices at events because they are cheap, fun and encourage networking.

Utilise social media

Social media is a great outlet for sourcing entertainment ideas. Pinterest, in particular, contains thousands of boards with entertainment ideas from ‘corporate event entertainment ideas everyone will love’ to ‘15 unique entertainment ideas for your next event’.
