Party entertainment ideas – inspiration is everywhere!
At Electric Cabaret Company Brighton and London we specialise in only the most exciting of entertainment ideas. With ever-evolving, brilliant entertainment and event performers and that means keeping a finger on the pulse of the nation.
What exactly are we thinking and feeling at the moment and how do we tap into that general consciousness to deliver party or corporate entertainment that is relevant to the ‘right now’?
If you’ve been tasked to throw the party to end all parties, with amazing entertainment ideas and a completely blank canvas, it’s time to embrace it! Event inspiration is everywhere you just need to know where to look.
Entertainment ideas from fashion
If something is everywhere on the high street there is a good chance it will be in a lot of potential event guest’s wardrobes. This means if you build an event around a current fashion trend it will feel like second nature for event attendees to reach into the closet and be party ready.
When silver was a big fashion story a super modern, space age, technology fuelled party felt just right. Boho hippy chic inspired indoor festival vibes with flower crown making and quirky pop-up performers.
The current 1970’s fashion trends inspired us to create our Electric Cabaret 1970’s Revue show. Together with the anniversary of the iconic 70’s New York nightclub Studio 54 and the news of Abba writing a new album it made it exactly the right time to ride the seventies train.
A very fashionable little bird told me that cowboy boots are supposed to be making a comeback. Who knows what fun we might have with that!
Party entertainment ideas from popular culture
Current movies, TV series, books and art can all capture the public’s imagination. Just think of all the Peaky Blinders inspired events that popped up.
If you time your event right, you can even ride off the back of the perfectly targeted advertising of many of the most vibrant TV series or movies.
A James Bond theme event can seem so boring and hackneyed. Until that fleeting moment every four years when the huge publicity circus gets to work overtime. The brand new and exciting, ridiculously high budget Bond release is here and it is suddenly briefly ok to go 007 all over again. In due course, a new uber-cool Bond leading man will, of course, ignite the mood even further!
A word of warning though, leave it too late to jump on the bandwagon and it will all have been done before.
Entertainment ideas for party nostalgia
If you know the age demographic of your audience, you can re-visit the era that defined their childhood. Nothing brings a warm fuzzy feeling like nostalgia for those far-off hazy days of fun and freedom.
For instance, twenty-somethings are re-embracing the 1990’s with all the Cool Britannia, Garage and U.V. raving vibes that they were just that bit too young to experience fully the first time around.
Entertainment from every era has such a strong and individual identity that if you get it right and most importantly as authentic as possible, it will be like inviting your customers to time travel!
Entertainment ideas for the mood of the nation
World politics, royal weddings, the economy, the weather etc. it can all affect how people are feeling. You can’t work against it, so we say roll with it!
If the nation is experiencing good vibes and guests are ready to dance on the tables, then events like our Tropical Tiki Beach Party and our other feel-good shows are just going to heighten the mood even more.
If, however, the nation is experiencing bad vibes it’s time to blow off some steam.
We are working on some very fun solutions.
Our ‘Tainted Love’ anti-Valentines party is a chance for singletons to get their own back on that sickly Valentine’s advertising overkill that surrounds us every February.
Santa doesn’t have to be jolly! Our ‘Bad Santa’ arrives at your Christmas party hilariously drunk and with a black eye!
In conclusion, if we all just get past caring anymore it’s time for us to party into Armageddon with our big production Electric Cabaret Company ‘End of the World’ party. That’s sure to shake things up and make everyone feel a whole lot better!
