As anyone in event planning knows, party entertainment is often the most talked about part of an evening. As such, there’s a growing demand for entertainers in corporate event hire. When staff need a thank you, an uplift, or if you’re planning the office Christmas party, you’ll want to pick the right entertainer for the occasion. As experts in the industry Connections Ent has picked its top six most-popular themes for office parties for inspiration:
  1. Vintage Throwback

Everyone loves a throwback! If music is central to your theme, then consider a dedicated band like the Vintage Corporation that can take you on a musical journey from the 60s and 70s. Popular with office parties, invite your guests to dress in full authentic clothing from the era.


Another ever popular throwback is the Great Gatsby theme. This is best brought to life with the Gatsby Guys and Gals who promise to transport you back to a bygone era with a night of entertainment, escapism and enjoyment.


  1. It’s a Kind of Magic

Ever-popular with corporate event hire, magicians can transform an evening with mind-boggling performances. There’s plenty of different types of acts to suit every occasion.


Bringing a touch of Vegas charm, Wayne Goodman fuses comedy and magic together, while Edd Crafter will bamboozle guests with his sleight of hand. There’s even award-winning magicians suited to bigger crowds with live performances.


  1. Murder Mystery

Bring colleagues together without the formalities of ‘team away days’ by hosting a Murder Mystery event. This is a great way to grow internal relationships, as well as give-back to employees in a fun way they are sure to remember and appreciate.


The Murder Mystery theme includes performers and singers in a customised package that can also include food and beverage.


  1. James Bond

Great for client-facing corporate functions, James Bond is a timeless theme that everyone will enjoy. There’s plenty of casinos to hire for events, which provide the perfect backdrop for a night of glamour.


Make the night even more special, with your very own 007. Steve Wright is one of the top Daniel Craig look-a-likes available for corporate event hire – you might even recognise him from TV appearances. Just don’t forget the dress code: tuxedos and black dress all the way.


  1. Old Hollywood

Perfect for Christmas parties, pay tribute to an era of charm and elegance with a touch of Hollywood Glamour. Suzie Kennedy is one of the most famous Marilyn tributes in the world, having appeared in film and TV as the legendary pinup – and is a great addition to any Hollywood party.
