Suggested reads about Entertainment

What does entertaining include?

Local entertainers can add a whole other element to your special party, corporate function, children’s party, or cultural event. They can add music, fun, magic, and activities to help create a fun, engaging atmosphere for your guests. Some popular entertainment options include:

Music & dancing

Every event needs music, so why not step things up a notch with live musicians and dancers? Stir emotions with a talented bagpiper, traditional drummers, or a folk guitarist and singer. Or get a DJ to mix some of the latest hits and get the dance floor going. Impress guests at your restaurant or party and hire belly dancers to mingle and dance amongst the tables. Your performers will engage the audience, encourage participation, and ensure your guests have an amazing time.

Balloons & face painting

When you’re looking to hire a children’s entertainer, you can’t go past a balloon artist and face painter. They’ll bring their own equipment, tools, and supplies, and get set up before the children arrive at the party or event. They’ll do their own setup and clean up when they’re finished. Your children’s entertainer may work for the whole of your event, or for 30-60 minutes in between other activities.

Clowns & characters

Create a special atmosphere at your next children’s party and make their dreams come true when their favourite characters turn up! A costume character entertainer or clown will do more than just get dressed up - they’ll spend the entire event acting in character to entertain and enchant guests. Characters are also a great way to add fun to your corporate event or even your business promotion!


No matter how big or small your party or event guests, they’ll love watching a magician perform tricks. Your magician will bring all their equipment and get set up ahead of time, staying in character any time a guest approaches. They’ll do a series of tricks as part of a magic show, which may include disappearing tricks, card tricks, illusions, and more. Many magicians will encourage audience involvement, moving about amongst tables, and requesting volunteers to participate. At the end of the show, they’ll pack everything up, taking care to minimise disruption to the rest of your event.
