About Entertainers Near Me

We have been in the music and entertainment industry for over 20 years. We’ve run events, planned events for clients, hired entertainment and been booking agents. When it comes to gigs, events and bookings, there’s not much we don’t know! You’re in safe hands hiring entertainment with us. We know the industry inside and out. 

Our main goal with Entertainers Near Me is to make it easy finding an entertainer for hire. You will find a top selection of local talent from all areas of the UK. We help for all types of events such as weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, nightclubs, pubs and much more.

One of the reasons we made the site was because we found it hard booking entertainment for a wedding. Either the agency was bumping up the hire price or we couldn’t find what we wanted in Google. So the site was born. We are a directory and not an entertainment agency. Although we run in a similar way.


How much does an entertainer cost?

The cost of entertainment hire will depend on a few factors. Such as:

  1. The type of entertainment you want to hire.
  2. How popular they are.
  3. The type of event (wedding entertainment costs more).
  4. Where you’re based in the UK.

Please note, it’s always best to contact acts direct and ask for a quote. This is a good time to chat with them about the event and get an actual price.

Do you have tips for hiring entertainment?

1 – Listen to music or watch show reel videos on the acts profile. This was you can see / or hear if they are a fit for your event.

2 – See if the act has good reviews online from previous bookers. This is a great way to see what they are like. 

3 – Always go with an act who has event experience. You don’t want to have problems on the day / night of your event!

4 – Get a full quote and be clear exactly how much you will be paying and the act performing for.

5 – Send the act a message and see how promptly they reply. This is a good way to see how professional they are.

What types of events can you help with?

We can help for any type of event. As well as weddings, birthday parties, hen dos and stag parties, we book for clubs, pubs and corporate events.

Will I pay a booking fee?

No. We do not inflate the price of any of our acts by adding a booking fee. All of our acts can be hired direct and the only cost is their own price. That’s it. There’s nothing more to pay.

Can your acts be hired for overseas gigs?

In most cases acts are already highly booked with UK gigs, but some may be available for overseas requests. Please contact the act to ask them.

Can you help find a last minute musician / act?

Of course. Please get in touch with us with details of your event / what you need and we’ll try to help.
