Summer Event Entertainment Guide

Updated: Sep 10, 2019

It’s reached that glorious time of year again! The sun is out and everyone has popped on their shorts and sunnies to soak up some rays.


But if you’re in the midst of organising a Summer Event, this time of year also comes with a few niggling anxieties. Will the nice weather hold out? How many people will turn up? How am I going to level up after last year’s event?


Well here at PartyFriendz we’ve put together a guide to the perfect Summer Event Entertainment. These services are guaranteed to entertain the crowds, come rain or shine, to ease some of those Event Organiser worries!



Face Painting


Event Type:

Fairs/Fundraisers, Parades, Music Events, Funfairs, Weddings, Food & Drink Events, Family Fun Days, Race & Sports Days, Carnivals, Heritage Days


Guest Type:

Fun for all ages and guest types - works particularly well for younger guests


Features:

A longstanding favourite that is well-loved by all.

Face Painting is a popular and affordable option that is flexible enough to work for almost any event, no matter the size, structure, guest quantity or duration.

Your painter will give your guests a variety of designs to choose from with all products dermatologically tested and following EU guidelines.



Arts & Crafts


Event Type:

Fairs/Fundraisers, Craft/Art Events, Weddings, Market Days, Family Fun Days, Heritage Days


Guest Type:

Spot on for families and children


Features:

An Arts & Crafts area is great for your younger guests to drop in and out of at their leisure. With different art activities to choose from, including painting, designing, making, and decorating, your guests can get creative and take their designs home with them. Arts & Crafts are ideal for long duration events with continual passing footfall and are an effective addition for Markets and Fairs.



Balloon Modelling


Event Type:

Fairs/Fundraisers, Parades, Funfairs, Craft/Art Events, Weddings, Family Fun Days, Race & Sports Days, Carnivals, Heritage Days


Guest Type:

Great fun for children and families


Features:

Balloon Modelling is a flexible service that works well for all events with children and families. Unlike other similar services, such as Face Painting, a Balloon Modeller has the freedom to move, allowing them to either be set up in one location or to roam through the guests at your event. This service provides children with a balloon design of their choosing that they can take away as a memento of the event.



Character Appearances


Event Type:

Fairs/Fundraisers, Parades, Funfairs, Family Fun Days, Carnivals, Heritage days, Food & Drink Events, Race & Sports Days


Guest Type:

Enjoyed best by small children and families


Features:

A visit from a popular children’s character is the perfect way to build excitement at your event. Visits can feature any variety of different characters, including princesses and superheroes.

Appearances can include a meet and greet with photo opportunities for your guests (great for busy or rolling events)

or could also include entertainment, such as singalongs or a story (ideal for smaller or more structured events). Characters are also an exciting addition to parades and processions. They work as an effective hook for guests when marketing your event.



Glitter Bar


Event Type:

Parades, Music Events, Weddings, Fundraisers, Food & Drink Events, Family Fun Days, Race & Sports Days, Carnivals


Guest Type:

Great for all ages – particularly adults who like to glam up or have a party


Features:

A glitter bar is the perfect way to add some (literal) sparkle to your event. The bar can include a number of options for your guests, such as; glitter tattoos (always a hit with children) and hair and skin glitter applications, or “festival glitter” (great for adults – consider it the grown up version of face painting!) The bar comes with plenty of designs, colours and ideas for your guests to choose from.



Pick & Mix Entertainment


Event Type:

Fairs/Fundraisers, Music Events, Weddings, Food & Drink Events, Family Fun Days, Heritage Days, Race & Sports Days


Guest Type:

Adaptable to any age of guest


Features:

Events with a lengthy duration need more than just one entertainment service to keep it fresh for your guests.

A Bespoke Events Package allows you to pick & mix numerous attractions that suit your event for a full timetable of entertainment.

Services could include any of the options mentioned in this article and more, such as; Pamper Options, Mini Disco, DJ Entertainers, Garden Games, etc. Furthermore, logistics and scheduling are organised beforehand to keep your Event Planner stresses to a minimum at the event.
