Booking Entertainment for an Awards Ceremony

September 26, 2016

You don’t have to book entertainment for an awards ceremony but it certainly helps. The truth is that awards ceremonies can be stuffy affairs, especially for those who aren’t lucky enough to win on the evening. One sure fire way to make them enjoyable for everyone (and to mitigate the loss of not winning an award) is to hire entertainment for an awards ceremony, sit back and watch as everyone has a great time downing the free drinks! But what sort of entertainment should you be booking for the event? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back!... "Read More

September 22, 2016

The great and the good turn out in force every year for the Square Meal Venues and Events exhibition and 2016 is no different with hundreds of exhibitors spaced out across four floors of Old Billingsgate, which we think is worth recommending as a venue for your next event; “if it’s good enough for event professionals…” But what is it actually like?

September 21, 2016

If you’re looking to book a band or musical act for your event, sometimes less is more.

This list shouldn’t be seen as exhaustive – there are many more acts who don’t feature on our site – so please do get in touch if there’s an act you’re looking to hire.... "Read More

Fab Musical Duos for Your Event – Part I

September 20, 2016

Two Men & a Box

If there’s one thing that many of our clients would agree on, it’s that they love music and believe it will enhance their event. The vast majority of our enquiries are from event planners looking for ‘music to hire’ or ‘bands to hire’ or even ‘anything with an accordion?’ (yes!)

Aren’t we nice?!... "Read More

No Man’s Land at Wyndham’s Theatre – West End Review

Ooh, Interesting! Fascinating Facts - Great Balls of Fire!

We wouldn’t like to be flamed for these puns so we’ll stop there but suffice it so say, if you’re looking to hire fire acts then you know where to come. You’ll see something that is entertaining, safe and perfect for all guests to enjoy. That can’t be said of Nejapa, El Salvador however, where every year a game of dodgeball is played where every projectile is on fire. And here’s why…... "Read More

September 14, 2016

If you're looking to book a wedding band, most of the options available to you will be pop and rock function bands, ranging from a four-piece right through to a large ensemble that offer all the classic hits of yesteryear (as well as a few modern tracks you'll surely recognise). But what if that's not what you're after? What if you'd like your wedding band to be unique, a bit different? Here are five for you to consider.... "Read More
