Choose a Close-Up Magician to perform illusions

One of the best forms of entertainment we can think of for a leaving party is that of a Close-Up Magician!  A Close-Up Magician will wow your guests by performing sleight-of-hand and illusions to groups of guests as they walk around the room and give them plenty to talk about!  One of the benefits of hiring a Close-Up Magician is that your guests can carry on talking among themselves while this entertainment takes place in the background (and for a leaving party, there will be plenty of talking – and tears!)  Click here to find a Close-Up Magician based near you today on our Entertainment Directory!

Stage Illusionists will amaze your guests to the max!

Another magical entertainment option is to choose a Stage Illusionist.  This type of magic offers a more elaborate performance, with an illusionist usually performing with the help of an assistant.  Illusionists will mix up their magic with exciting magic tricks and then more daring illusions including the art of escape and other fantastic stage tricks.  Illusionists have become even more popular since famous illusionists such as David Copperfield, David Blaine and Penn and Teller.  If you would like to find an illusionist near you, click here to browse our listings!

Lighten the mood and book Comedy Singers for some fun

If you want to keep things light-hearted and everyone cheerful, why not look into booking a Comedy Singer to perform at the leaving party you are planning?  Comedy Singers are another type of entertainment that is getting more popular and famous comedy singers such as Tim Minchin and Bo Burnham have helped throw this entertainment option into the spotlight.  Comedy singers will combine their musical talents with comedy to put on a performance for your guests and if there are any topics you’d prefer them to stay clear of, simply ask them before you book.

Keep children occupied with the help of Face Painters

One of the most fantastic ways to keep children entertained at a leaving party is to hire face painters to magically transform them all into little monsters, animals, superheroes or princesses!  Children will take turns getting their faces painted, and this will inspire them to use their imagination for group play!  If you are having many children at your leaving party, hiring a face painter is perfect for keeping them occupied without being too intrusive!

Get everyone dancing and hire a Function and Party Band

No party is complete without live music and what better choice than a Function and Party Band? These ensembles are fantastic at providing that party atmosphere which is perfect for a leaving party! Function and Party Bands will play a variety of popular hits from many different eras from a huge repertoire, so if you have any particular songs in mind, why not mention it to your chosen band to see if it is a song that they can perform.  Most Function and Party bands will also make announcements for you throughout the evening which will make your party even more fun!  Click here to find a Function and Party band using our entertainment directory!

If your friends or family are moving to the USA, choose a Country and Western Band

A perfect choice for musical entertainment if your co-workers, friends or family are moving to the USA is to book a Country and Western Band to add a buzzing atmosphere to the leaving party that you are planning.  Playing popular Country and Western songs, booking this type of band could be the start of an amazing themed leaving party!  With covers from Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Kenny Rogers, check out your chosen band’s repertoire to see exactly what type of music they can play!  Add some fun and search for a Country and Western band right now!

For lovely mementos, why not book a Caricaturist?

Even though your guests will be very pleased to be together celebrating your friends or family’s new adventure, they may also be a little sad, so the perfect type of entertainment to keep their spirits high and give them a little memento at the same time is to book a Caricaturist!  A Caricaturist will sketch each of your guests within a couple of minutes in a comical manner and give them their drawing to take away with them.  This would be the perfect way to remember such an evening and give your friends or family something special to take away with them.  Another amazing idea is instead of giving each guest their own caricature, bundle them all-together for a fantastic keepsake.  We make it really easy to find a Caricaturist in your area using our website, so click here to start your search!
