Frequently Asked Questions

What entertainment ideas do you have for Halloween entertainment?

Halloween is such a fun theme to organise entertainment for! With endless inspiration from classic Halloween characters such as witches, vampires, ghosts and pumpkins, to gothic literature, Halloween films, and other festivals such as Day of the Dead, there are so many themes to choose from. How about a freakshow, zombie flashmob or scary walkabout characters? For grown-up glamour try a twisted cirque, vampire-themed burlesque or cabaret show. And for interactive entertainment, why not try a tarot card reader? Or an immersive haunted house experience with live actors to give you a fright!

What Halloween characters do you have for my event?

We have so many! Many you’ll recognise from films, books and legends, but we also offer new and innovative characters designed to thrill. Count Dracula, Frankenstein, evil puppets, scary clowns and zombies are among classic options for Halloween characters, but we also offer comedic mummies, a thriller flash mob, strange creatures and undead mermaids. Have something specific in mind? Our creative and production teams can make it for you.

Ideas for music at a Halloween event?

We can ask many of our bands to dress up in specific costumes to suit your theme, but we also offer Halloween-inspired productions such as a living dead drumming show, monster-themed musical, Tim Burton-inspired rock band and much more.

Do you offer immersive Halloween entertainment?

We do! As well as stand-alone immersive entertainment such as haunted houses and virtual reality experiences, combining a number of entertainment types can submerge your guests into a hypnotising world. Consider the different senses and try to include entertainment that will play to sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Live music, decor, food and drinks can all be themed while interactive walkabout characters and engaging entertainment such as a tarot card reader, freakshow artist or illusionist will delight guests! 

What Halloween shows do you have available to hire?

We can offer a hugely diverse range of Halloween shows spanning dance, music, circus, theatre, cabaret and magic. From unnerving and scary to fun and friendly, you can find a whole host of Halloween shows suitable for different audiences. 

Alice In Horrorland

Featured Act: Alice in Horrorland

Take guests on a journey down the rabbit hole, where nothing is as it seems and madness is but a moment away. Our incredible Alice In Horrorland roaming characters are perfect for instilling the Halloween spirit in your guests, incorporating stunning bespoke costumes with frightening facial makeup that evokes fear in all who see it. 

Our marvellous Mad Hatter, terrifying Queen of Hearts and Alice add an unusual twist to one of CS Lewis’ most beloved works.
