University life should be inherently rich in culture, and a diverse array of entertainment should be available to suit all tastes. Ensuring students from all walks of life are catered for and all cultures are celebrated is a prerequisite of university event planning.
The importance of entertainment in student life cannot be understated and the role of a student union in providing it is pivotal. Considering entertainment that is both fun and educational at various times of the year is key to a positive study/life balance.
We have been instrumental in supporting universities in getting the best entertainment for their brief and budget in recent times, helping the likes of Loughborough, Nottingham Trent, South Bank London, Warwick, Leicester, De Montfort, Lancaster, Derby, Wirral, Northampton and the Open University connect with established keynote speakers, dynamic music acts and an eclectic assortment of entertainment. Here are the most popular forms of university entertainment:
While a big name act will invariably pack out your venue, a quality party band with a speciality is always a hit with the student market. Offering something different can be a great way to ramp up excitement for an event. Bavarian Oompah band the Bavarian Strollers, the LED-lit party band Light It Up or specialist karaoke band Bandaoke could all bring great energy to your occasion.
Often the highlight of any student's calendar, watching a famous act perform at their SU can prove the pulling power of any university. It is a chance to show the calibre of act you can attract to the stage, and with talent such as nineties and noughties hit bands Boyzlife, S Club 3 and Scouting for Girls available - as well as more contemporary stars such as Rudimental and Lotto Boyzz or classy jazz and swing bands - there is something for all events.
Able to motivate students to go further in pursuit of their dreams, keynote speakers can offer insight into all manner of specialist subjects as well as provide inspiration on how to put their ambitions into practice. With speakers from across the worlds of business, politics, sport and adventure, you can walk the line between education and entertainment.
They say laughter is the best medicine, and booking a top comedian to have your students rolling in the aisles is a must either side of studying and exams. The likes of Lewisham comic and Strictly Come Dancing star Seann Walsh may well be just the answer. Nina Conti provides an interactive masterclass in ventriloquism and few comedians have the same draw in the student market as the brilliant Jack Whitehall.
One of the staples of student entertainment, celebrity DJ and late night parties often form part of the student routine. With a host of celebrity DJs from BBC Radio, hilarious pirate radio station Kurupt FM, from commercial radio and reality television, we are able to bring rousing DJ sets at your student event. Book the likes of The Mac Twins, Charlie Sloth and Caroline Flack!
