Hire Christmas Entertainment for Light Switch On Events throughout the UK!
The team at Big Foot Events are dedicated to bringing you top quality, world-class entertainment. We work alongside some of the best venues, booking agents and management companies in the world, providing acts for venues and events internationally.
We have years of experience behind us, and are rightfully very proud of our outstanding reputation. 365 days a year our talented acts are providing fun and live entertainment in a wide variety of venues and adding an extra special touch to celebrations, weddings, corporate events…….the list is endless.
One of the reasons we are so successful is the fact that we like a challenge, we love organising challenging and unique events that allow us to flex our planning skill muscles. So we were absolutely delighted when we were, once again, invited to assist organising the entertainment for the Perth City Centre Christmas Light Switch On! This is one of our favourite events of the year as there are so many elements to consider, from family-friendly fun, Parades and the children's stage, to community activities and main stage headliners!
I’m sorry, I must have misheard you... I thought you said three Camels?
Now we don’t want you to think that we’re over confident when it comes to something as important as planning and organising an event to perfection, because we’re not. We consider every little detail, and we make sure we are giving our client exactly what they want; even if it is 3 kings, 3 shepherds, AND 3 camels! Honestly, we've had stranger requests, have you met our Dinosaur team?
Mr Rex our ever-helpful dinosaur for hire offered to ring round a couple of his dinosaur friends and turn up in camel fancy dress but then there was the problem of what to do with his massive tail, so we discarded that idea quite quickly.
A Festive Feast for the eyes...
In the end we didn’t need to bother Rex, as you would expect from our brilliant and very well-connected team we found our camels, the kings and the shepherds. We also added winter wonderland stilt walkers, Ice Jesters on roller skates, Snow Angels and LED light up winter fairies who looked stunning in the Santa Parade and added breathtaking and exciting visual effects to the event.
The atmosphere in Perth City Centre was magical. The super=excited kids loved the Princess Show and our children’s entertainer Sam. Our Ariana Grande tribute act had the audience enthralled with her performance which was even more spectacular than the firework display.
It wasn’t all about the younger members of the Perth community though. Keith Duffy & Brian McFadden performed live with their band Boyzlife and East 17 caused a thrill amongst most of the mums and some of the dad’s that were there, and quite right too because we can’t imagine anyone who could resist the Christmas Number 1 Hit Stay Another Day, can you? Perfect for every Christmas line-up! Alesha Dixon from Britain's Got Talent completed the line-up on the Main Stage.
The entertainment and live music created a Christmas lights switch on like no other. We had an Elvis Tribute Band and Village People tribute act, while our very own Lionel Vinyl wowed the crowd in his own unique way., keeping the crowd dancing and entertained whilst practising their John Travolta moves! The live music didn’t stop there, The Midnight Soul Sisters – featuring the X Factor’s Bupsi - gave the event even more sparkle with their incredible vocal and dancing skills and as a polar (get it?!) opposite to their smooth sounds we had live rock band The Hunna on one of the other stages! It’s safe to say we had all our bases covered at this event.
No Christmas party or event is complete without a boogie in an Igloo Silent Disco or taking a selfie in a life-size Snow Globe with falling snow all around you.
We worked hard, we paid attention to every tiny detail, we built our wish list of everything we would like to see at an event such as this and then we made it happen for real. We think we’ve changed the face of city centre Christmas Light switch on events forever!
Next time you want a switch flicking in splendid style, a party planning, a corporate event creating or facilitation of a festival the Big Foot Events team are ready to take your call!
