Masquerade Ball Entertainment Ideas to WOW your guests


Masquerade balls get more popular during the Autumn and Winter months and they can be a lot of fun.  Dating back to 16th Century Venice, you’ll find plenty of Venetian masks, elegant costumes, drapings and of course an evening filled with entertainment.  Here we have put together a little guide of entertainment options perfect for a Masquerade Ball.  We hope you enjoy putting your plans in place and that our inspiration makes your entertainment choices even easier!

Book Human Statues to Entertain during your Event

A Human Statue is a type of performance art which involves them posing as still as a statue, while occasionally fooling passersby by startling them as they walk by!  When you hire Human Statues, you are generally given a choice of costumes from their collection, so why not opt for something Venetian or with a Ballroom twist for your upcoming Masquerade Ball?  Human Statues will give your guests something to talk about and will get plenty of attention as your guests flock to see them.  Want to book a Human Statue (or perhaps a few!) for your next event?

Party Band 

Enjoy a night of entertainment with the help of a Party Band

When it comes to musical entertainment, we can’t think of anything better than a Party Band!  This type of band is really energetic and exciting and will get everyone up onto the dance floor!  Just because you are hosting a Masquerade Ball, you don’t need to necessarily hire traditional entertainment and by choosing a Function and Party Band you can cater for everyone’s tastes.  They usually have a massive repertoire of hits from many eras ranging from the 1950’s to the present day.  Click here to find a Party band for your upcoming Masquerade Ball!

Aerialists and Acrobats will add a touch of Glamour!

For plenty of visual entertainment during your event, why not look at booking Aerialists and Acrobats to perform and wow your guests?  These two types of performance artists offer different skills and shows, for example an Aerialist will perform in the air and use objects such as ropes, trapezes, hoops and swings as they showcase their fantastic talents.  An Acrobat will perform on the ground, usually in groups and will create human pyramids, jump through hoops and give your guests a circus style performance.  We have plenty of Aerialists and Acrobats to choose from, so why not take a look at all of our available performers?

For something a bit different, why not choose an Opera Singer?

Another fantastic choice for musical entertainment which is that little bit more unusual is to hire an Opera Singer.  Imagine your guests as they mingle in their costumes while listening to a dramatic Opera performance!  This type of entertainment is not for everyone, however will give your guests a night to remember.  With famous songs such as “Phantom of the Opera”, Carmen” or classics from “Les Miserables” enjoy an amazing atmosphere and find an Opera Singer for your upcoming Masquerade Ball?

Book Hula Hoop Performers for a visual display

Why not have a bit of fun with this next entertainment idea and book Hula Hoop Performers to showcase their skills?  Hula Hooping is a fun activity that most children try and some adults do for exercise, but when you book a professional Hula Hoop Performer, you’ll get a contemporary show with a circus theme.  Usually they will perform to background music, however you could have them set-up their show in the background as your event unfolds.  Click here and find a Hula Hoop Performer to dazzle your guests and give your guests an amazing experience.

Add some magic to your Masquerade Ball with a Close-Up Magician!

Our last entertainment suggestion for a Masquerade Ball is to book a Close-Up Magician.  We love this type of entertainment because it works as a perfect ice-breaker and gets guests talking!  A Close-Up Magician will perform illusions and sleight-of-hand tricks using all sorts of objects, such as coins, bank notes and playing cards.  One of the benefits of choosing a Close-Up Magician is that this entertainment can continue in the background while your event takes place and won’t detract from other entertainment such as musical performances.  If you want to add the WOW factor to your event, click here and find a Close-Up Magician!
