Al fresco entertainment for summer fun

Al fresco music

The sun is shining, the temperatures are sizzling, and there’s more to come. So why not attract customers to your business with al fresco entertainment?

Whether you’re a pub, restaurant, tourist attraction, farm shop or garden centre, offering something a little special this summer could pull the punters (and their children) away from the beach and into your business.

Here are a few ideas for easy-to-stage entertainment that’s sure to delight:


All American adventure

Treat your customers to the sounds and tastes of America. Pile the bbq high with burgers and offer all the toppings, from Swiss cheese to mayo. Add blackened Cajun chicken, corn on the cob and all those bbq favourites ten digits can handle. Have plenty of ice-cold beers on hand, complemented with chilled Californian whites bursting with fruity flavours. Add a few straw bales to sit on, clear a space, and let one of our Americana bands work their magic to get everyone up and dancing.

Chill-out zone

Are your customers more of a chill-out crowd? Treat them to cool sounds from laid-back bands as they relax on bean bags, sipping iced cocktails, designer gins or local ice-cream in grown-up flavours. In the shade, or under the stars, these acts will turn any location into a chill-out zone.
