Live Performers | Christmas Entertainment for Dobbies Garden Centre

Our Bespoke Christmas Entertainment for Dobbies Garden Centre Had a Massive Impact


One of the things that we love about Live Performers is our bespoke entertainment planning service. We don’t just send any acts out; we work closely with our clients to create entertainment that is exactly what they’re looking for.



In November, we were contacted by Dobbies Garden Centre. Dobbies is one of the largest Garden Centre Chains in the UK. They were having a special family day at their Huntingdon branch to celebrating the countdown to Christmas and wanted some help planning the entertainment, so we put our thinking caps on.


Awesome Christmas Entertainment Ideas


Dobbies brief was as follows:


• To have entertainment happening constantly throughout the store’s peak hours.

• The acts must be walkaround style acts.

• The acts should be Christmas Themed.

• The Christmas acts should be highly interactive and interact with the customers

• The acts would also be used for Santa’s arrival parade.



After getting an idea of the client’s budget, we found we were able to give Dobbies the Christmas Entertainment they were looking for, with a few upgrades along the way! Here is the Christmas entertainment we created for Dobbies


Crazy Christmas Elves on Jumping Stilts



We created cheeky elves that were a massive hit. Looking very dapper in their colourful elf suits, they flipped and somersaulted over guests and drew gasps from the audience. When not acting flipping bonkers they delighted the crowd by juggling mince pies and Brussel sprouts. Christmas craziness at its best.


A Roller-Skating Christmas Present



Talk about pulling out all the stops! We only managed to book a champion skater who used to be in the cast of Starlight Express! Looking fabulously festive, our speedy Christmas present danced and skated around the store with enough speed to make even amazon prime jealous!


A Toweringly Tall Mrs. Santa Claus



Our toweringly tall Mrs. Claus costume was custom made for the event at Dobbies. Mrs. Claus looked a tad more glamorous than usual as we turned her into an 8ft Leggy blonde! She walked around the store, posing for selfies with the customers who couldn’t help but be charmed by her dazzling smile.


A Brilliant Bubble Workshop – Soap Much Fun!



Once you pop, you just can’t stop! And there was plenty of popping going in our bubble workshop. Bruce, our bubble wizard, created incredible bubble displays that amazed the crowd. He then led a fun-filled workshop where he taught the kids how to create their own bubble magic.


A Complete Christmas Entertainment Package


Not only did we supply the acts but also created a schedule of entertainment so that there was always something happening around the store. The guests were treated to non-stop entertainment that built up to Santa’s big arrival and the opening of Santa’s grotto.


Needless to say, we not only met the clients brief but knocked it out of the park. This resulted in the customers staying longer at the store, having a great time and spending more. It was a brilliant win-win situation. The guests had a great time, and the store profited with more sales.
