How to choose the best entertainment for your Christmas Party:

 

We know Christmas is the furthest thing from you mind while you are enjoying this unusual heat wave in Ireland, however the time of the year to book and plan for your company’s Christmas party has arrived!

Usually, choosing a venue it’s easy enough - taking into consideration past parties and events as well as location & budget. Nonetheless, the entertainment can make or break an event!

Its common sense that the main party band for after the meal represents the majority of the budget for entertainment, nevertheless there are a few more stages of your event that demand your attention.

As they say first impressions last longer so your welcome act should portrait the theme and spirit of your event. The Drinks Reception stage is also very important as it is the time your guests start to mingle, it is crucial to have good music but it is also vital that the act doesn’t overpower the room. Having entertainment during the meal its optional, if you want to go for the full effect there are some amazing surprise acts for this stage of your event.

After the band only the true party people stay on the dancefloor so make sure you don’t disappoint them, hire a good Live DJ act or Silent Disco so you can bring that WOW factor to the end of the evening.
