  1. Choose Your Audience 

It is important to know and understand what type of audience will be at your event as this will depend on the type of entertainment you should choose.

The number of guests 

Depending on how many people will be attending your event, will determine how many acts we recommend to perform throughout. If it’s a small intimate event, we would recommend acts which can work the room and approach guests, such as magicians and contact jugglers. If it’s a festival or family fun day, we would suggest attention grabbing interactive walkabout acts such as stilt walkers and giant puppets.  

The age of the guests 

The next thing to consider is the age range of guests as your event. Our performers have performed for guests of all ages and can adapt their shows and skills depending on the audience. We even offer an alternative option of workshops, which can again be tailored to the different ages of the guests.
