Will your partner turn 40 in a few months and would you like to surprise him or her with a smashing birthday party to celebrate this milestone together with family and friends? Is your eldest son going to graduate next summer and are you planning to put him in the spotlight in a flashy way with a party for him and all his friends? Or have you been asked to organize the annual end-of-year drink at the office this year with some colleagues and are you still looking for ways to give substance to this in an original way? Whatever the occasion and whatever your plans for it, wouldn't it be very convenient to book for the event?
Before we continue with what we can do for you and your event, and how we can add value, we will first briefly explain what exactly we mean by 'booking for the event'. To begin, by 'the event', we mean an event, such as a wedding, a birthday, or a festival, that is organized by one or more people. By 'booking for the event' we mean that the organizer can choose to organize certain parts of the event or even the entire event with our help.
For example, imagine you're preparing for your sister's wedding and you're still a little messed up with the musical entertainment. At Evenses, we have an enormously extensive portfolio of singers, female singers, DJs, and other artists who can entertain your guests with beautiful live shows. Or think of setting up the local village festival as part of the organizing committee, just to name a few. We can also help you very well with, for example, setting up stages, arranging various food trucks and food stalls, and booking all kinds of entertainment. In short, whatever the event you are going to organize, we can help you give it that little bit extra.
In that respect it does not matter to us how big the event in question is. Whether it is a private dinner for some friends for which you want to have the main course catered for or the complete set-up of a festival where about 6000 people will be present, it does not matter to us. Our priority is to find out what kind of event you want to organize, what you have in mind in terms of its implementation, and in which areas you would like some support.
Nevertheless, booking for the occasion in question doesn't have to be very difficult. However, given the varied range of options available for events in the UK, it is advisable to request the assistance of a party with experience in the field of such bookings. At Evenses, we have an extensive portfolio of reliable suppliers of services and live acts with whom we have collaborated for countless parties and events. We are happy to make that expertise and experience available, so that you can book exactly the event you have in mind.
If you first want to explore the available options yourself, you can start with our website. There you can already do some research with the help of the search engine. This way you can quickly find the ideal options based on, among other things, the type of event and the available budget. In addition, our bookers and entertainment specialists are available seven days a week to answer your questions about booking for an event. You can always reach them by filling in the quotation form on the website and sending it without obligation, or by e-mail or telephone. At Evenses you can assume that we will book the entertainment together with you that perfectly matches your ideas for the occasion.
Some practical tips to stay within your budget
Certainly, if you have already organized an event yourself, you know that the available budget has a major influence on what your options are for the occasion. We at Evenses are all too aware of this, which is why we also offer options for very different types of events and budgets. Since going over budget is something you want to avoid, it seems helpful to us to list some ways to stay within your budget.
The value of partners and sponsors
Depending on what kind of event you are going to organize, it is quite possible that partners or sponsors can be found who are willing to help financially. Are you organizing, for example, a conference for future Masters’ students? Maybe there is a school that wants to affiliate with your event or a company that does want to sponsor the drinks. Or does the event in question need marketing to sell tickets? Maybe you can save on design costs by turning it into a project for design students from a local school. The idea is ultimately to reduce your own costs through collaborations, but make sure that the partners and sponsors you are considering actually fit well with the event.
An interesting guest speaker without paying for it
Just like finding partners and sponsors, finding free guest speakers is not always easy, but it is more than worth it. It is possible that a guest speaker will accept to give a chat at your event for free, but then you will have to compensate for it, such as the travel costs, or the chance to increase the awareness of their own name or brand within their exact target audience. This is an excellent way to provide your event with some activity without having to spend half your budget.
A free website
In the 1990s, the price of a beautiful, functional website could skyrocket, but nowadays there are so many ways to create a website that the prices are a lot lower, especially if you know where to look. Sometimes it is even possible to put a website online for free. With design platforms such as Wix and Wordpress, for example, you can get started designing a simple, but effective website for your event. If you don't have any experience or feel like setting up such a website yourself, you can enlist the help of an IT student or a freelancer who will take care of it all for a reasonable price.
Use social media
Whatever event you organize, remember to create a social media presence. Of course, for a lunch with friends you don't need much more than a Whatsapp group or a Facebook group to agree on the details, but that does not apply if, for example, you want to organize a festival next summer. You can try to make the event more widely known in an organic way or you can invest some in advertisements on social media. If you opt for the latter, we do recommend seeking the help of a specialist in that area. In any case, there is a good chance that the advertising costs will still be a lot lower than if you were only promoting the event offline.
What Evenses can do for you
As we wrote before, as an organizer you are faced with a lot of choice in terms of acts and services when you book for an event. At Evenses, we have a wide range of professional suppliers that are suitable for bookings at all kinds of parties and events, from birthdays and weddings to festivals and corporate events.
We can, for example, book for an event in collaboration with you that includes various types of entertainment, such as a live DJ set or a visual show by a VJ. That makes the party or event even more spectacular. Whether you want to give the upcoming neighbourhood party an original touch or are looking for unique entertainment for a night out with colleagues at the annual office party, booking an event is rarely a bad idea. To give your event a completely personal finishing touch, we can have many aspects of it personalized, such as the costume of the service, the menus of your own cocktail bar, or the set list of the jazz singer you have booked. Choose us as your event management partner.
To organize events? When organizing an event, it is important that the right entertainment is provided, in line with your wishes and the wishes of the guests, at your event. At Evenses we like to think along and help you organize your event.
The location is important to organize a successful event. Is there enough space for all your guests? Is there a pleasant atmosphere? The appropriate entertainment also plays a big role in this. If you are looking for a suitable musical interpretation or other entertainment for, for example, a company event or festival, we have a wide range of different all-round DJs, photo and video options, shows and cover bands. When you hire a band for your event, there are many options in genres and compositions. If you would like advice on this, you can always contact us. Evenses offers you various options of entertainment for your events. In addition to musicians, we also offer a dance floor or photo booths and many other options. We naturally want your wedding or birthday party to be unforgettable and we do everything we can to ensure that the organization of your event or party runs smoothly.
