Hire a Close-Up Magician to bring some magic to your event!

Magic is always a winner with people of all ages and hiring a Close-Up Magician is the perfect way to get guests talking among themselves.  A Close-Up Magician will perform illusions and sleight of hand tricks using plenty of small objects such as coins, bank notes and playing cards.  One of the main benefits of hiring a Close-Up Magician is that they are an extremely versatile form of entertainment, making them perfect for events such as weddings, corporate events and birthday parties.  Instead of working from a central location it would be a fantastic idea to get your magician to work around the room to different groups of guests as they talk among themselves.  This will be a much more effective way to include everyone!  Click here to find a Close-Up Magician on our entertainment directory!

Give Guests a Giggle and Memento with a Caricaturist

If you want a simple way to get guests talking, and also give them a little something to take home with them, why not look at booking a Caricaturist?  A Caricaturist will sketch funny drawings of guests in turn within a couple of minutes and other guests will flock to watch as their skills come alive and interacting with each other!  A Caricaturist is best situated in one location; however, they are able to move around the room if necessary.  Caricaturists are fantastic entertainment ideas for occasions such as weddings or anniversary parties – in fact, any occasion which benefits from a little keepsake!  Want to find a Caricaturist near you?  Click here to browse our selection!

Wow your guests with the presence of a Stage Illusionist!

Another amazing ice-breaking entertainment idea is the Stage Illusionist.  This continues with the magic theme and is another popular choice for events, especially if you are wanting to really make an impact.  A stage illusionist will perform death-defying illusions, usually with the help of a beautiful assistant!  Some Illusionists require the help of members of the audience, and once your guests have finished watching the performance, they will have plenty to talk about afterwards.  Find a Stage Illusionist for your upcoming event and add a dramatic and thrilling element to your party!

Enjoy a Sing-Song with a Karaoke DJ!

Karaoke DJ’s are becoming more and more popular and can add a really fun element to your event.  Whether you are planning a wedding or a birthday party, a Karaoke DJ will not only play popular songs from many eras to the present day, but will also have the option for guests to volunteer and sing along with a microphone.  This is a certain way to get guests talking and enjoying themselves and we highly recommend it for an enjoyable evening!  Click here to view our Karaoke DJ’s on our entertainment directory.
