Birthday Party Entertainment Ideas for Seniors

If you are planning an event for seniors, a little more thought needs to go into the choice of entertainment. Many senior citizens can be easily offended by modern entertainment such as adult stand up comedians, so we have put together this guide to suggest a few entertainment ideas that would be ideal for a seniors’ birthday party.

Clean Stand Up Comedians

Just because some seniors may find adult humour offensive, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t fond of comedy. Hiring a clean stand up comedian will ensure that all of your guests will have a fantastic time, with laughs all round. If there are any topics you wish to be left out of your chosen comedians set, simply speak with them to discuss this. Clean stand up comedians are perfect for entertaining any age of guest, especially families or seniors.

Comedy Cabaret Magicians

Combine comedy with magic and entertain your guests with a comedy cabaret magician. In the style of Tommy Cooper or Paul Daniels, most seniors will appreciate this style of magic and be amazed and entertained while sleight of hand and comedy are mixed before their very eyes.

Ballroom Dancers

Seniors love to dance, so what better way to entertain your guests than by providing trained ballroom dancers to perform? This form of entertainment will need slightly more space so it is always best to check with your venue to make sure it is suitable. Ballroom dancing is very elegant and your guests will enjoy a memorable party and most probably want to join in too!

Tribute Acts

If you are planning on providing musical entertainment for a seniors’ birthday party, have you thought about hiring a tribute act that is suitable for their style of music? Popular tribute acts such as Bette Midler, Tom Jones and Neil Diamond can all be hired for a fraction of the cost of the real thing! Your guests will be treated by someone who not only sounds like the authentic artist, but tries to look like them and act like them too.

Rat Pack Shows

Get everyone on their feet by hiring a rat pack show for your seniors’ birthday party entertainment. With a spectacular show featuring singing in the style of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Junior, a rat pack show is certain to be a winner with your guests. After all, who doesn’t love a crooner?

Swing Bands

Sticking with the same sort of genre as rat pack bands, swing bands are also available to hire for your upcoming birthday party. Swing bands will get your guests tapping their feet and enjoying a dance while providing the perfect party atmosphere without limiting the music to that from the Rat Pack.

There are many other entertainment ideas that would be suitable for a seniors’ birthday party. If you are hosting a sit down dinner, why not book a string quartet to gently play in the background, or if you want to add some impact, an opera singer might be just what you are looking for. Whatever entertainment you decide to hire, you are sure to put on a memorable and fun party for that special someone.
