Variety & Speciality Entertainment in London

If you have been involved in party planning for a while, it's always a relief to know that the world of entertainment continues to offer new ideas that offer audiences an element of surprise, joy and excitement. When if comes to glamour, control, beauty, athleticism and a real spectacle - a perfect option to choose would be an Aerialist display artiste. A great aerialist really knows how to lift and change the mood at an event - controlling the audiences emotions in line with their fabulous aerial displays using ropes, giant aerial rings and more. Hypnotists are adapt at building suspense and jugglers will have everyone wanting to have a go themselves (believe us, it's not easy!).

Variety is making a comeback - it's engaging and magical, and people revel in the unexpected and the joyful aspects of variety acts.

Caricature Artist

Included in our selection of speciality acts are many caricaturists - perfect to mix mingle and entertain guests at corporate events and weddings in and around London.

A few ideas to whet your appetite for creating your very own variety performance for a party that stands out for sheer inventiveness!

For a genuine experience of the world of variety entertainment, take a visit to London's' Wilton's Music Hall. It is a unique building with significant historical importance - and somehow has survived in one form or another for over 300 years. Based in London's East End, it has held up in spite of two World Wars, and was the go-to place for variety entertainment for the masses.

Wilton's provides a mixed programme of events now - with the original Mahogany Bar open for drinks. It may not be the most plush of theatres, but in terms of London heritage, Wilton's is the genuine article. Why not take a look at The Victoria and Albert Museum's collection on Variety Acts, there's lots of fascinating facts, artwork and theatre programmes which reflect the tastes and times of the London public at the turn of the century.

The number of variety theatres built in London were filled with audiences as soon as the roof went on!. Within a short space of time, Variety was the most popular form of entertainment - jugglers, paper cutters who could create giant palm trees from a newspaper, gymnastscontortionists and tightrope walkers are just a few of the types of acts one could expect to see in a Variety show lasting a few hours. One of the most popular event of the Variety Theatre Calender is the Royal Variety Command Performance. Established in 1908, it is still the most coveted theatrical event for any variety artist, so if you'd like to try for a ticket for the Variety Performance sign up for their information sheet for future events!
