If your son or daughter is approaching a major birthday, whether its 18 or 21, you will want to make sure their celebration is a success. To them it’s vitally important to create a good impression with their friends, so you’ve got an awful lot of planning to do to make sure it all runs smoothly.
Check out any potential locations carefully as not all venues are willing to cater for a bunch of rowdy teenagers and often set a minimum age limit to prevent underage drinking.
Consider the different options available for the catering. Young people often have surprisingly sophisticated tastes when it comes to food so perhaps sausage rolls, crisps and chicken legs will be a little bit on the basic side.
The entertainment is one of the most important aspects of the party and is something your son or daughter will be judged on. Do they already enjoy going to night clubs? If so then perhaps a DJ would go down well and be popular amongst their friends, however, nothing creates as much of an impact at a party as live music.
But what type of band do you book? To save a lot of time and stress it’s a good idea to use a music agency (we always use A.T. Music Agency based in Chelmsford, Essex) when looking for this type of entertainment. They will have lots of experience of providing the right band for the occasion and will be able to recommend a choice of suitable acts. They will oversee the whole process from the initial enquiry right down to the band packing up at the end of the party and be able to smooth out any potential problems along the way. They will ensure the band turns up on time and on the right day leaving you free to get on with other things. Now the only thing remaining is to enjoy the celebration.
