What a whirlwind of a year 2020 has turned out to be. Events that were scheduled for Spring and Summer are now on hold, and clients are crossing their fingers for warm outdoor events in September, and a party explosion this Christmas. But what are the biggest event themes of 2020?
1. The Great Gatsby
‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody’, and with it being 100 years since the original Great Gatsby, 2020 is the perfect excuse to dress fancy, book a Speakeasy band, perfect your Charleston dancing and hire a giant martini glass prop. It’s a really inclusive theme that appeals to all age groups and genders. Some favourite entertainment solutions for this are a Lindy Hopping hula hooper, our Gatsby aerial hoop show, Charleston dancers, a Speakeasy foot juggler, and a 1920s acro juggling duo.
2. The Greatest Showman
This continues to be hugely popular across both adult and children’s events. Contact us today for your Greatest Showman entertainment brochure, which includes everything from animatronic elephants to bearded lady singers, acrobats, snake handlers, ringmasters, and of course a myriad of circus acts.
We’ve noticed a real spike in demand for anything ’70s, ’80s, Boogie Wonderland and Disco, with a fresh demand for mirrorballs (which of course we love, because our logo is a glitterball), mirror characters, mirror aerial and contortion, dance across the eras, lookalikes such as our awesome Austin Powers, tribute bands and fitness freaks.
4. Nature/Garden of Eden/Enchanted Garden
We’re all striving to be more eco-conscious and environmentally friendly, and with this has come a resurgence in anything woodland, natural, plant, or garden themes. Lots of clients want to host parties in their gardens at home, so this theme doesn’t even require a huge amount of decor to look authentic. And we have some simply stunning acts to suit: ivy aerial hoop, floral aerial hoop, flower people, themed crafts and face painting, and stilt walking trees.
It’s unlikely to be a festival-filled summer, so our hot prediction is that party hosts will want to create their own festivals later on in the year, complete with glitter application, hair braiding, DJs, robots, food stands, saxophonists, bongo players, stilt walkers, and stage dancers. We are in touch with some fabulous marquee and decor companies too, so get in touch if you’d like us to connect you.
Do you think we’ve missed out any strong contenders for the event theme of the year? We’d love to hear your comments.
