Top tips for your hen party
To ensure that you are looking at entertainers within your budget, know your budget before you start to contact them! Obviously, what you can afford will dictate the quality of the entertainer and the price for a professional performer will depend on their experience and reputation. You also must consider that cost can depend on the date, location and size of your show.
The best way to determine your budget is to put it into perspective, for example determine your per-person cost for entertainment. Let’s face it, it’s probably worth having a higher budget on entertainment than say food. Quality entertainment will create a moving effect and an enduring impression, whereas expensive food and drinks will soon be forgotten by your guests. The fun that your guests have at your event will be by creating long lasting memories not by the varieties of food on offer!
Know the Performers Experience
An entertainer that has a wide range of experience in events will be best to amuse your audience! When choosing the perfect person for your event, don’t be afraid to ask a lot of questions and have a good look at reviews to ensure your potential performer is reputable! Having an entertainer with experience is absolutely essential and you really can’t take a risk on a person!
One of the most important things is to make sure that your entertainer is a specialist who knows the needs and expectations of the environment you want to create. Your entertainer must also be suitable. For example, hiring a magician that usually works at child birthday parties isn’t an acceptable choice for a typical corporate conference.
You could have a comedy act, as they are great entertainers and will get all of your guests laughing. They also don’t have to be stand up comedians, as some can even incorporate magic. Therefore comedians variety ensures that there’s something for everyone in their performance.
Buff Butlers are ideal entertainment if you want to add the much needed cheekiness for your event. Butlers with Bums will be on hand to meet and greet your guests, serve your food and drinks and of course bring that much needed eye candy.
It really is essential to ensure that the content of your entertainer is appropriate, no matter what type of act you choose. Therefore, it is always best to communicate with them.
It is best to either see the act in person before you hire them or watch a demo video that they have created! Their demo video should be a montage of clips of your potential performer(s), as well as videos of the audience’s reactions. You will therefore be able to judge whether they are the best fit for your corporate event. If an entertainer cannot provide you with a demo video or you haven’t personally seen them live, do not hire them! This will mean they are not a professional and are probably an amatuer, that probably won’t do justice for your event!
