Christmas / Xmas Party Entertainment Ideas


If you are putting on a Christmas party, you may not have thought about the various options available to you for providing entertainment. You can really have a bit of fun with Christmas parties and get everyone into the spirit of things. Why not go for that wow factor by hiring entertainment that no one will be expecting?! Here are a few suggestions that will be sure to make any festive celebration memorable.

Live Bands & Groups

Live bands always get people in the mood to party so if you are hosting a Christmas party, hiring a live band is the perfect way to get people up onto the dance floor and really enjoy the celebrations. There are many different kinds of live bands and groups to choose from including Jazz or Blues bands or for something a little more sophisticated and if you want people to mingle, String Quartets. Rock Bands are perfect for louder parties with plenty of atmosphere.

Carol Singers / Carolers

What perfect way to celebrate Christmas than with Carol Singers. With many options available to hire, carol singers can put on a show or work in the background as you and your guests catch up and chat. Your guests will be wowed and are certain to join in with some of the more famous Christmas carols too.


Caricaturists may seem like an unusual idea for Christmas party entertainment, however they will provide hours of fun for all guests as they take turns getting illustrated. This form of entertainment is perfect if you have background music quietly playing and you wish for guests to chat amongst themselves as each caricature takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. They will soon become the talking point of the party with guests enjoying seeing themselves drawn in such a comical way.  Caricatures also provide a unique gift for guests to take away with them, giving them plenty of memories of a fantastic Christmas party.

Close-up Magicians

Christmas is always such a magical time of year so what perfect way to celebrate it than providing a close-up magician as entertainment for your party? Close-up magicians are perfect ice-breakers and will generally work around the room through groups of guests wowing them with their illusions. Soon, other guests will be crowding around to find out what all of the gasps are for! Hiring a close-up magician will leave your guests amazed and mystified, providing the perfect festive atmosphere.

Comedy Cabaret Magician

Or why not add a touch of magic and comedy to your Christmas party by hiring an comedy cabaret magician. Most Comedy Cabaret Magicians offer a 45 minute – 1 hour show providing your guests with an hour or an evening full of magic. They will get the audience involved which always provides plenty of laughs and a very memorable evening for everyone.

Lookalikes can add a bit of magic to any party so if you’ve always fancied having a Laurel and Hardy lookalike act or Michael Jackson as a guest at your event, choose the next best thing and hire a lookalike. A good lookalike will not only have a striking resemblance to the real celebrity but are also charming, funny and bring their personality to life by acting like the real person while mingling with guests.

Party DJs

One of the most popular entertainment choices for most occasions is the DJ. Hiring a Party DJ can be a lot of fun as guests can request music and dance together on the dance floor. Most DJ’s have their own lighting systems which will shine different colours around the room and really give off that party atmosphere. They also enjoy a bit of banter with the crowd and more importantly, take up very little space to set up.

Tribute Acts

Tribute acts are a perfect form of entertainment for a Christmas party as you can celebrate in style with a number of different acts and really set the mood.  A good tribute act is an affordable way of listening to something as close to the original as possible and can liven up any party.  Popular tribute acts for Christmas parties include Michael Bublé, Tom Jones or if all you want for Christmas is Mariah Carey, that can be arranged too!
