Corporate event entertainment

We have so many entertainment ideas for corporate events that are guaranteed to be a huge hit with your guests. Entertainment plays a huge role in making any event successful, and as the planner you may feel the pressure of ensuring that your guests are, well, entertained. Take a look at our wide range of exciting corporate event entertainment ideas that will knock your and your guests socks off – sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

As far as corporate event ideas go, hiring a magician has got to be one of the most fun options you can have for entertainment – regardless of your age! Our magicians will leave your guests in awe, performing fantastic magic tricks that will leave your guests amazed. Interactive close-up magicians are available for hire to get your guests involved and make them a part of the magic.

Another idea for corporate event entertainment is hiring a comedian to perform for all of your guests. Comedians are great for easing any pressure and breaking the ice at an event, as well as providing an amazing experience that many people don’t typically enjoy too often! Options include stand-up comedy shows, a lookalike comedy show, and even comedy magic performances.

And if you’re really wanting to go all out, then why not hire a circus show for your next corporate event? Complete with acrobats, aerial dancers, fire shows, and even an LED show – bring the thrill of the circus to your next work function. A unique experience that everyone will love!

Corporate event activities

What about providing your guests with something that they could get involved in? We have a wide range of corporate event activities that will allow your guests to fully let their hair down, and take the pressure off you as the event planner. Activities also encourage team bonding, which, in turn, helps to boost morale as well as productivity. 

One of the most popular corporate event activities is a silent disco. Guests can dance the night away with their own headphones (provided by a supplier), tuning into their own channel depending on their music taste. Meaning one person might be moshing out to Metallica, while the next guest is doing the Cha-Cha Slide. 

How about a murder mystery? We have a number of murder mysteries that your team can sink their teeth into. Actors arrive at your corporate event ahead of time and provide your guests with props. This is a great way to get your team working together – so, with your best French accent and questionable Poirot moustache, we’ve got a mystery to solve. Other fun corporate event activities on offer include a fun casino that comes with various games like roulette and blackjack, even inviting along a caricaturist to mingle amongst your guests or stay seated in a corner as they turn your employees into a cartoon version of themselves.

Street food ideas

Making sure your team is well fed is just as important as making sure that they are kept entertained throughout your event, and we know that regular catering options at a corporate event can often feel a little bit ‘samey’. Now, you don’t ever have to worry about providing your guests with boring food with our amazing street food options – available for hire at your next work event. We have plenty to choose from, that will keep your guests coming back for more! Street food options include pizza, burgers, waffles, crepes, donuts, etc. Our suppliers will also take care of any dietary requirements, including any allergies, vegetarian, and vegan. 

Pizza is always going to be a winner, because who doesn’t love pizza? Choose from classic Italian recipes, stone-baked pizzas, and even wood-fired. Delight your guests at your next corporate event by hiring a pizza van to take care of catering. 

Another favourite has to be burgers! Juicy burgers will go down a treat with your guests, including simple or gourmet. Our suppliers take care of everything, so no need to stress. This includes all of the prep work, cooking, and even cleaning everything away when all your team have finished eating.

Another classic when it comes to street food are hotdogs. Our suppliers will arrive at your event ahead of time in their hotdog cart, and provide your guests with the tastiest, most delicious hotdogs. And what’s a hotdog without incredible toppings? Our street food options ensure that your guests are just as excited about the food as they are about the entertainment.

Whatever you’re celebrating, we’ve got you covered. Explore our hand-picked ideas and themes and find something that gets you excited.


What is a corporate event?

Throwing a corporate event is a great way for companies to celebrate and engage with their employees. Whether it’s to celebrate a milestone or merely to celebrate the good work of your fantastic team, a corporate event can be as extravagant or intimate as you like. Poptop has so many corporate event ideas for you to choose from to help you on your way to planning a successful event that your employees will never forget.

How to plan a corporate event?

Planning a corporate event can be quite stressful, especially with so many suppliers and choices out there. When planning an event, you can either research suppliers individually, whether it’s food, entertainment, music, or drinks – OR, you can find all services available up and down the country on our website. Planning a corporate event has never been easier as we’ve got everything under one roof. You can research all types of services that cover catering, street food options, music, corporate event activities, and unique entertainment.

How to cater a corporate event?

Venues typically provide their own catering, but if you’re looking to surprise your employees then why not consider booking something a little different like a street food cart, pizza/burger vans, or a cocktail masterclass? Details such as these can really help to elevate your corporate event and keep your guests in high spirits. Poptop has a number of different catering options to choose from, including hot and cold buffets, as well as a private chef for a more sophisticated event.

What are the corporate activities?

Corporate activities are a great way to get your employees more involved and engaged with the event as well as each other. Some ideas for corporate activities include a fun casino, a silent disco, or even a murder mystery!
