Martin John – A Magician in London

Close-Up Magicians

Hiring a close-up magician is the perfect way to get your guests talking and one of the main benefits of choosing this type of entertainment is that they can walk around your outdoor event and perform to small groups of people.  A close-up magician will use sleight of hand magic and illusions to play tricks with coins, bank notes, playing cards and other small objects.  They don’t need much space to perform which makes them perfect for outdoor locations.  Find a close-up magician near you right now on our entertainment directory!

Face painters for Summer BBQs

Face Painters

We can’t think of a more suited type of entertainment for outdoor events than a face painter!  If you will be having children attend your event, make their faces light up and book a face painter to transform them into their favourite characters or animals!  A face painter generally works quickly and will easily be able to paint many children’s faces within a few hours.  They usually work from a central location, with a small table and chairs, but don’t take up much space for their set-up.  Find a face painter for your outdoor summer event today.

Luke Burrage – Juggler from EntertainersWorldwide.com


Another firm favourite for outdoor entertainment is to hire a juggler.  The talented individuals will juggle with objects such as batons, plates, balls and sometimes even fire and again, can walk around your event performing to small groups of people.  They will also sometimes get your guests to join in and teach them the basics of juggling.  Not only do jugglers provide a colourful performance with bright costumes, but also a thrilling performance too.  Want to book a juggler for your upcoming event?

If you want to put on some fun entertainment for your guests and give them a keepsake too, why not look at booking a caricaturist to sketch comical drawings of your guests.  Each sketch generally takes around 5 minutes each, so within a few hours many of your guests will have a little something to take away with them.  This type of entertainment also takes place from a central location, which makes it very easy to organize and is rather reasonable too!  Click here to find a caricaturist and give your guests something to smile about!

Strobe – Function and Party Band

Function & Party Bands

No Summer event is complete without a bit of live music and we have plenty of genres on offer over on our website.  A live band or group is the perfect fit for these types of events since they know how to banter with guests and will also add some fun into the mix too.  If you want to get your guests up dancing as part of your occasion, book a function and party band to perform covers of songs from many eras and even take requests from their repertoire.  Search through all of our function and party bands on our entertainment directory right now.

Fire Performers

If your Summer event is going to continue well into the evening, we highly recommend putting on a performance that will keep your guests in awe!  Book fire performers to help light up the sky by juggling with fire batons, performing dangerous stunts and even eating fire!  This type of entertainment looks spectacular against the night sky and offers an element of excitement and drama.  Your guests probably won’t be expecting this type of entertainment so click here to find and book fire performers for your event now!
