  1. Queue Busters!

    Leave a Comment

    If there is one thing we have learnt to do during this pandemic, it’s queue. That’s right, due to the ‘social distancing’ safety measure of keeping two metres apart from anyone at any given time, it has severely impacted people’s experience when shopping or visiting any type of Retail store or even any public place. The wait times to gain access to those chosen Retail stores and public places can be so excessive that it discourages peoples who want to visit. That’s why we have come up with a solution for businesses to attract people to their store, all whilst encouraging responsible social distancing.

    In order to keep visitors interested and willing to wait to get into your store, you need to make their queuing experience more fun and enjoyable! You read correctly; we’re talking about adding excitement to the queuing process of the shopping experience with ‘interesting distancing’ – otherwise known as hiring our range of eye-catching, captivating and interactive street performers to entertain people whilst they wait in line.

    Don’t be bored, boogie!

    There is nothing like music to help pass the time, and let’s face it, nothing brings people together and puts a smile on their faces more than a sing song and a dance. With our range of fantastic musical entertainers, you can keep visitors occupied, entertained and more importantly happy whilst standing in line. From a weird but wonderful five-piece stilt walking 1920s band, a lively, energetic and captivating mariachi band, an incredible classically trained string quartet and many, many more. We guarantee that our street performers will lift the spirits of everyone around!

    Creature Feature

    Did someone say ROAR? Go wild with our fascinating wild animals and state of the art, interactive, giant, smoke-breathing dragons and incredibly realistic dinosaurs. Guaranteed to take people’s attention away from the excruciating long queue, our range of exotic animals will provide visitors with a wonderful wildlife experience! It will be the only time you can say you nipped out for a pint of milk and ran into ‘Dreygo the Dragon’ doing his daily exercise.

    It’s a fantasy

    No, you haven’t accidentally stepped into one of your favourite fictional stories, it’s just our range of fabulous and famous Fairy-tale characters and fantastic creatures that you’re seeing entertaining your visitors as they patiently wait in line to enter your store. Gargoyles, Wizards, Witches and even Mermaids, Fairies and Pirates will WOW people with their incredible live theatre performances and bring a real buzz to your store.

    Make em’ Laugh

    They say laughter is the best medicine, so cure the boredom and frustration that comes with queuing up with some comical characters and crazy antics. Nothing screams crazy than a nun on a piano strolling down the street singing at the top of his lungs, and nothing screams comical than a very boisterous and mischievous mime mimicking your every move. Our range of hilarious comedians, street performers and entertainers will definitely keep the laughter flowing!

    The Circus is in town

    Roll up. Roll up to the greatest queue in the world! We’re talking Stilt Walkers, Fire Breathers, Fire Eaters, Acrobats, Clowns and many, many more weird and wacky street performers and circus acts that are all waiting in line to entertain your visitors. We guarantee that our circus entertainers will distract visitors from queuing up in a long line with their unconventional tricks and mind-blowing performances.

    We know it’s important to keep a distance, so queuing up to enter any retail store or public space for a long period of time will be the new normal for a while, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a dull experience! Keep things interesting for your visitors with our fantastic range of street performers, entertainers and acts – you could even use them to raise money for charity or to gain new business exposure.

  2. Sunshine Festival 2019

    Leave a Comment

    The Brief

    We had the honour of being a part of the Sunshine Festival 2019. This will be our tenth year providing sensational live entertainment for this amazing event. Sunshine festival is a fantastic family-friendly festival that takes place every August Bank Holiday in Worcester, England!

    The Challenges

    As we mentioned before, this is our tenth year being a part of the festival, and each year the level of entertainment increases massively from the year before. With the success of last year’s event, which consisted of over 100 performers, acts and artistes performing over three consecutive days, and with reports showing that over 8,000 people attended, we had the challenge of leveling up our range of live entertainment for this year’s event.

    The Solutions

    In order to maintain our reputation for providing high-quality live entertainment to the events industry, and to once again give people a unique, never seen before, memorable experience, we had to make sure we provided the very best entertainers in the entertainment industry! We decided on a range of fantastic live tribute acts – because who does not LOVE a good tribute performance? As well as a few well-known and well-loved famous faces, including talented TV actress and West End Star, Claire Sweeney!

    The Results

    The popular event is a firm fixture in the Worcestershire calendar and always draws a bumper crowd – and this year attendees were blessed by gorgeous bank holiday weekend weather. As the festival was celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event’s slogan ‘The Festival for Every Generation’ was more important than ever as over 10,000 tickets had been sold, so we had to ensure there were a wide range of acts suitable for all ages. The event consisted of the Main Stage, Sunflower Stage, Sunshine Stage and the Variety stage. Each stage had an impressive variety of performers entertaining the crowd throughout the three days.

    Among the Headliners on Friday were East 17 and 911 who delighted crowds with their nostalgic hits. Each boy band brought their own electric energy to the stage and made thousands of fans go wild! Speaking of nostalgia, Boyzlife, S Club and The Osmond’s made a special appearance and put on one hell of a performance! We cannot forget about our favourite acts of the whole event, British DJ’s Judge Jules and David Pearce who had the audience jumping to their incredible beats.

    It was, however, British boyband Busted who stole the show on Saturday, as the atmosphere instantly intensified as soon as the pop-rockers were brought on stage! Busted gave Sunshine Festival Goers one of their famous, high energy performances with nostalgia galore, as well as music from their new album Halfway. Hilarious musical duo Jedward also joined the stage that night and the crowd seemed to laugh up a storm whilst enjoying their chaotic energy. And for the older generation, the Saturday night live show finished with Showaddywaddy performing all of their timeless and classic hits.

    Sunday saw Peter Andre and Scouting For Girls serenade the audience with their array of love songs, whilst English actress, singer and TV personality, Claire Sweeney stunned the audience with her angelic vocals and her bubbly personality. We can honestly say that watching her perform was one of the highlights of the Festival.

    As well as famous singers and headline acts, the Festival also featured over 20 incredible Tribute Performers. Stand out tributes included Nicola Marie who brought soulful singer Amy Winehouse back to life with her uncanny tribute performance, Maxine Mazumder who honoured the sensational voice of Dusty Springfield, Jimmy Jemain who oozed Rock & Roll with his fabulous rendition of classic Cliff Richard songs, and Donna Ramsdale who brought everyone back to 2014 with her tribute to Pop singer Jess Glynne.

    Considering that this was a three-day festival, you can image just how many amazing acts and entertainers were performing– definitely too many to mention! You can find the full line up on the Sunshine Festival website.

    As always, we loved every minute of the 3-day festival and look forward to experiencing it all over again for its 11th year with new incredible artistes, entertainers, and acts.
