We’ve shortlisted the best entertainment for summer parties. If you’re in charge of planning, you’ll want the best of the best to make the party stand out from all the others. Summer is the season to be outside and enjoy the warm weather. It’s the season to kick back, relax and soak up the sunshine before Autumn and Winter roll round again. If you need some ideas for your upcoming event, check out our list below of different options that you might want to consider for your event.


Fun Fairs

Who doesn’t love a fun fair? Adding a fun fair to your event can take it from nothing special to extra special. Unlike other venues around the city, The Artillery Garden at The HAC has a fun fair option that is exclusive to their venue. The fun fair includes typical rides you would see at any other fair such as a big wheel, a carousel, dodgems and even side stalls with games and prizes.

Magicians can be a great addition to your summer party, especially if children and family will be on the guest list. Magic shows can be incorporated into your party in a variety of ways: upon arrival as a welcome for your guests, either before or after dinner or you can even have multiple shows spread out throughout the event if you are going to have a large enough attendance.



If you want your summer party to have a dramatic ambience or surreal theme, aerialists can add that WOW factor you’re looking for. Aerialists can perform in the background throughout the event or they can give a special performance at any point throughout your party. Aerialists will mesmerise your guests and create a magical experience for people of all ages to enjoy.

Live Bands

There is something about a live band versus a DJ that adds an extra element to a party. Live bands can be booked to play for a certain amount of time during your event or in different time slots if your event will be taking place over a longer period of time. Venue spaces like Old Billingsgate are perfect for parties that will be having a live band perform because they have a centre stage inside the venue area that is ideal for a band set up.

Photo booths

Photo booth rentals have increased in popularity over the years and are a great entertainment add on for a summer party. Many photo booth rentals will come with a set of props which will allow your guests to let lose, be goofy and ultimately have some fun. Plus, your guests will get a party souvenir that they will always have to remember your party.

Sometimes DJs are the preferred method of music for an event for many reasons. Sometimes the genre of music you need played isn’t easy to find with a live band and sometimes live bands are not within your budget.
