Arabian Nights in Sevenoaks

We've been entertaining at private parties in Kent for over 10 years, and have been lucky enough to see some of the most beautiful homes and gardens in the county. However, an Arabian themed birthday in a huge mansion was a first for us and it didn't disappoint.

As guests drew up to the gates they were greeted with real life camels dressed in Arabian attire. This offered a unique photo opportunity which drew many a smile. The house itself with lit with impressive uplighters, and Moroccan style lamps decorated the entrance. Our male and female Arabian style hosts were there to meet and greet, and ensure guests had a glass of tipple on arrival.

During the drinks reception our beautiful snake handler in a bellydance costume moved amongst partygoers offering a hands-on experience where they could marvel at the snake and ask her lots of questions - the snake is also her pet so she's only too happy to educate people about how to handle the animal.

Meanwhile our henna artist created beautiful wrist and hand adornments which were popular with female guests. Our henna artists mix their own safe, chemical-free henna paste which develops over a period of days and stains the skin for a few weeks.

Our Arabian dancers then surprised the party with an impromptu show to get the dancefloor started, and then the rest was in the DJ's hands! A wonderful night had by all.

Stars and stripes for this travel brand

Kicking off 2017 as we mean to go on, we entertained at a fantastic USA themed corporate event in Portsmouth with some of our favourite American acts. This yearly awards ceremony brought all the staff from Affinion Travel together to celebrate a year of hard work with a good ol' American knees up.

The VIP experience began with a walk on the red carpet where guests were greeted by our fake paparazzi and celebrity interviewer who begged them to pose for the camera and hounded them with questions of 'tell us, are the rumours true' and 'which of this season's trends has inspired your catwalk look'.

Once inside the venue, our Native American hosts took guests' coats, Hooters girls offered champagne and bottles of beer, and our charming Usherette girls served canapes in traditional USA costumes. These characters later interacted with our bespoke American flag shaped LED photo frame, which offered guests a unique opportunity to pose for a picture.

The USA theme continued with our incredible Dolly Parton tribute act who sung throughout the drinks reception, and escorted Affinion's MD to the stage with her signature sass. And after the awards our Elvis Presley tribute kicked off the party with renditions of 'Hound Dog' and other loved classics.

Our high energy 1950s dance duet performed the 'Hand Jive' from Grease, to rapturous applause from party guests, as lookalikes Marilyn Monroe, Jack Sparrow, Britney Spears, Donald Trump and Ozzy Osborne mixed and mingled. And our cheeky cowgirl stilt walkers offered a hint of Wild West interacting with an inflatable catcus and steed!

Diner girl rollerskaters got the dancefloor started as our cheerleader pole dancer demonstrated amazing flexibility and strength on our freestanding pole platform.

The cherry on the cake was our bald eagle ice luge lit with red, blue and white lights, through which we poured flavoured vodkas - some guests certainly enjoyed this and came back more times than we could count! 

Huge thanks to our photographers Alberto Baucis and Rebecca Honour who did an amazing job as always.  And a well done to event managers Abi and Sophie who kept every act to schedule, and finished feeling rather proud. Go team!

Jetsetting fire shows in Africa

Daze Entertainment has gone international, supplying performers to a brand new venue in Ghana's developing capital Accra which is fast becoming West Africa's 'place to be' for bars, hotels, restaurants and nightlife.  With only a few weeks to plan all the entertainment, source and make costumes, book staff in (during the busiest season of the year) and schedule flights for site visits, it was a lot to turn around quickly.

During December our team of performers touched down in 30 degree heat and got straight to work performing risk assessments, organising fuel for their shows, and attending photo shoots for all the launch media. It was a hectic week of early starts, late finishes and learning curves, but it was worth it in the end as the venue landed a double page spread in The Sunday Times, featuring none other than our beautiful fire girls.

Kudos to our team who are still out in Ghana performing fire shows at Carbon, enjoying the sunshine, seeing the sights and making friends with the locals. And what a pleasure to work with all the staff at the venue who have made our girls so welcome and appreciated. #thisiscarbon
