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.

Dress up as an inflatable dinosaur for a few hours


Belgravia, Greater London

23rd May 2019

We are a small business looking to test a marketing strategy and will pay someone to dress up in a dinosaur costume for half a day and basically walk around parts of London. It's really easy, just slightly embarrassing. Our website is www.mymuse.uk if you want some business info. The whole thing will be in Central London. It will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at any point for the next few weeks? For 2.5hrs AM and 2.5hrs PM. £10 per hour, and we will pay your travel between locations on the day. But won't pay your travel to get to the first meeting point. Which will be Victoria next week. We have a total of 5 COSTUMES which means there are 5 spots up for grabs. You won't have to say much, if anything, but you will have a non-offensive sign to carry. But you will be required to potentially do some ironic roaring and say a catch phrase or two. Were easy going people so will play it as we go! I will divulge further info on the actual campaign in private messages.
