At Late Night London, we take pride in staying on top of what clients are looking to achieve with their entertainment needs for their events. We love to get a head start.
And lucky for us, our fantastic list of preferred entertainment and prop hire companies have offered their insights in to what’s going to be on trend this summer.
Henry Fosdike, Sternberg Clarke
The weather is increasingly getting warmer and clients definitely seek venues and events to match the weather; light, al fresco entertainment is a staple that proves time and time again to be extremely successful. The fresh, warm summer breeze puts people in a good mood and who doesn’t like dancing to their favourite tunes?
Speaking of tunes… you absolutely cannot speak of a summer event without bringing up festivals. We see so many events and venues wanting to create a music festival vibe. It’s a light, fun theme and extremely popular with outdoor parties.
Of course, the main selling point of a party held between June and August is that you can hold your event outside (weather permitting!) so while guests are indulging in their strawberries and cream and prosecco, acoustic musical acts like Wandering Hands and Ze Trio work brilliantly as musical entertainment.
There’s also a chance for quirky and strolling acts to cater to your event; Carousel, Acrochaps and Living Topiary – human-shaped hedges who turn out to be hedge-shaped humans! - tend to get people talking, laughing, and snapping photos!
We know that summer is the ultimate season for fun and it’s best to plan and book for your event with that in mind.
Blank Canvas Entertainment
As the nights continue to get lighter and we wait for the sunshine to arrive, we at Blank Canvas Entertainment have been busy helping clients organise their summer parties and weddings. This year, interactive, strolling and music acts have been amongst the most sought after.
We’ve found that our clients particularly love photobooths and that living hedge men, who literally make any garden party come to life, have proved immensely popular. Other fun ideas include having a caricaturist strolling around drawing cartoon versions of guests or a magician to astonish audiences with their sleight of hand. Vintage themes have been fashionable this year as well, with clients opting for either a 1920's sparking singing duo for parties and weddings or a fully acoustic New Orleans Jazz band for outdoor events and venues.
Let Blank Canvas Entertainment help you create an awesome memorable event this summer.
