    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.

  • I just wanted to say a big thank you for being a part of our snapdragon festival this year. Once again Rex was a massive hit and the children and adults loved him. The two members of staff that came to the event were very professional and catered to any requests we had.

    Amy Casey – Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council
  • We absolutely love having Noughty 90’s here, such lovely people and amazing sets! They had everyone up and dancing on the dance floor.

    George – Golden Sands Holiday Park
  • It was absolutely incredible, I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing it all was. The Ranger and Rex were outstanding, every single guest loved them to pieces and we certainly had the wow factor for our wedding. Just the idea of having a dinosaur is one thing, but the way Rex, Trixxie and the Ranger worked tirelessly to entertain the entire wedding party just added to the overall effect. We've had non-stop comments from those who attended saying it was pure magic, videos of the experience have gone viral and we even had guests from the hotel desperate to catch a glimpse of Rex. I cannot overstate how incredible you all have been, from the day a weirdo messaged Lauren asking for a dinosaur at their wedding, to speaking with Jade to coordinate everything and then finally meeting Rex and the Ranger on the big day. Everything worked out a million times better than I ever thought possible, and my dad was very pleased to see Rex was appropriately dressed with his bow tie. Amazing, amazing, amazing, thank you all, from the bottom of our hearts.

    Mr & Mrs Pravitt – Private Wedding, Stoke On Trent
  • Both acts went down a storm at the weekend. Really pleased with everything! Madonna did all the hits and even included some iconic costume changes! She had the audience up Voguing at the front! ABBA Fever had the crowd on their feet from the start and would be a worthy headliner in the future.

    Andrew Edmeads – Frimley Lodge, Surrey
