Fundraising events are one of the best ways to support a charity you care about and bring people together to make a difference. But there’s no doubt coming up with the right type of charity event entertainment can be hard. Not only does it need to be entertaining … duh! But it also needs to motivate your guests to contribute to the cause by donating.

We often get asked for creative entertainment ideas for charity events, so we decided to put together a list for you. Here are five entertainment acts that are sure to wow your guests and really make your event stand out from the crowd!


Charity Event Entertainment Ideas

  1. Live Bands

Forget wasting time putting together a crummy playlist. Bands are a fantastic way to bring a beautiful sound to any event without the need for embarrassing yourself with your terrible music taste. They’re also great for energising the crowd and, if you’re lucky, you might even get a few guests on the d-floor!

2. Circus Acts

A successful charity event takes enthusiasm, dedication and a lot of fun! That’s why circus acts are a hoot at fundraisers, adding a comical element to your event no matter what size, type or charity you are fundraising for.

From Aerial performers, Acrobats, Jugglers to Illusion artists – you name it, we’ve done it. If you’re looking for an unusual, quirky and fun idea for your next event, a circus act could be the one so you.

3. Stilt Walkers

Entertainment is certainly the central component to a successful fundraiser, and what better way to raise the roof than with our mighty stilt walkers. You can’t miss these remarkable performers from any corner of the room. Both children and adults enjoy them, and their fabulously diverse costumes, which can be customised to your event or theme, are sure to impress all your guests.

4. Face and Body Art

Whether it’s temporary tattoos, face painting or hiring one of our professional make-up artists to get your guests red-carpet ready, you can’t go wrong with an act that makes your crowd feel glam!

Your guests are sure to snap their gorgeous new look and upload it to their socials, which can really help market and spread the word about your fundraiser. It’s also a great idea to place a donation bucket by the artist to encourage people to support the cause after getting ‘jazzed up’.
