Finding Entertainment

These days entertainment is big business in the UK, with people wanting top children’s and adult entertainers to perform at parties, weddings, corporate events, and so on. However, finding an entertainer who can put on a good show for a decent price can be difficult without the help of an entertainment agency.

Entertainment agencies act as the ‘middle man’ between entertainers and the general public, taking bookings and arranging a suitable entertainer to perform at an event. Generally entertainment agencies work on a local or regional basis, so you can find local entertainers to perform at events in your area, but there are also a number of national entertainment booking agencies that can find you an entertainer from anywhere in the UK.

There are many different types of entertainers available through entertainment agencies, ranging from children’s entertainers such as magicians, to adult entertainers, including singers, jazz bands, and comedians. The type of entertainer you choose will depend on the type of event you are hosting, and it is also worth noting that not all entertainment agencies offer all types of entertainers, so you may need to contact two or three agencies to find the exact entertainment you are looking for.

Entertainment agencies generally offer a selection that includes: magicians for hire, balloonists for hire, jugglers for hire, puppeteers for hire, tribute bands for hire, singers for hire, cabaret acts for hire, DJs for hire, world musicians for hire, fortune tellers for hire, psychics for hire, famous look-alikes for hire, comedians for hire, caricaturists for hire, after-dinner speakers for hire, and murder mystery hosts and actors for hire.

You can use an entertainment agency to find talented performers for almost any kind of event, so whether you want a child’s entertainer such as a clown for a children’s party, an adult entertainer such as a tribute band for a birthday party, a jazz band for a wedding, a comedian for a corporate event, or a fortune teller for a community fun day, entertainment agencies have a vast range of entertainers on their books.

Using an entertainment agency couldn’t be simpler; just use our listings guide to find an entertainment agency near you. You can check whether the entertainment agency has a suitable entertainer on their books, and then tell them when the event is, and the entertainment agency will do the rest. If you want to audition the entertainer before your event, then this can sometimes be arranged.
