BookEntertainment is a web-based platform that allows you to easily find, book and manage your entertainment for your upcoming wedding or party. It is all in one place that will save you any hassle trying to contact multiple people through Facebook messenger, phone or email.
It is just like a hotel booking website that shows actual availability and prices instantly.
Basically it allows you to book your event entertainment in a day rather than a few weeks and with fewer headaches.
Below I will guide you through our platform to show you how to easily navigate the site to find your perfect act that is actually available for your event date. You will see how easy it is to check their prices and you can message entertainers directly if you have any further questions. After you make your booking, both the act and you will be informed with an email about your event and sent reminders closer to the date. You can also spread your cost and remember all deposits are guaranteed on BookEntertainment.co.uk
- Make a search to find who is available for your event date
The main search bar appears in almost every page on the site. Just add in the basic information about your event: What type of act you want, the date of your event, type of event and the county that it's taking place. If unsure of the act type, do not worry as once you enter the date, location and event type, we will provide search results for all category types. This is worth trying if you want something different for your event but unsure exactly what that is.
2. Compare search results to meet your exact requirements and budget.
After inputting your information, you will see the main results page. This will look pretty familiar if you have searched for hotels or flights. The results will show you the number of available Entertainers or Acts in your area on your event date and their starting prices. Use the tabs to search by video or click on the lowest price first to display each act in order of price. Search by Video is a great way to see the act in action so you can choose your favourites to reduce your top picks. The Booking guide found in all search results has a video explaining the benefits of using our platform. This includes that your deposit is guaranteed, that you can spread your cost, direct message your act securely and our team is available to provide you with full support to assist you if you ever need it throughout your booking journey.
3. View the full act profile description, video and photos
You can view more information and detailed pricing options for any act by selecting the view profile or click more in the short description. Once you are in their profile page, you can read their full description, what to expect,, customer reviews and media gallery with photos, videos and audio tracks.
In the yellow section, you can see what packages and pricing options are available to book. There are options to book now and pay the deposit to lock in your date or ask a question directly to the act.
4. Messaging the act before booking
If you want to ask any questions to the Act before making a booking, just click on the ‘Ask a question’ button. This will allow you to send a secure message directly to your act. When your act replies you will get a notification and the link to complete your booking will appear at the bottom of the message screen. You do not need to message an act before making a booking but this feature is here to reassure you of any further questions you may have. If you are not logged in, you can quickly register when asking a question.
5. Creating a favourites list
You can create a list of your favourite acts to compare for later. On the search results list click on the heart button or when viewing a profile tap the add to favourites button. To view your favourites at any time just click on the heart symbol at the top right of your screen. This allows you to review all your favourites at a later time with your partner or colleagues when making a final decision.
6. Making a secure booking
When you have found the perfect act for your event, click on the book now button to provisionally confirm your booking. You will be asked to login or register to continue.
Once you have filled out your customer and event information, you can review the details before making a secure payment by card which will confirm your booking and date. You can choose to pay a deposit of 20% or pay off the full amount in one go. When you have made your booking the act will double check the details and confirm your booking. Once confirmed you will be sent a confirmation email with all of the details.
7. Paying off your balance in instalments
To help you with your event budget, you can login anytime and pay any amount off your remaining balance. This means you can spread your cost and not have to worry about carrying sums of cash at your event. Four weeks before the event, the full balance will be taken from your payment method.
8. Checking everything before your event
Book Entertainment will send out reminder notifications to both you and your suppliers/acts up to 1 month before your event. You can send a secure message to your act using your customer dashboard and you can also access the phone numbers and email for your act all in one handy place. You can also confirm the timings of your event and organise early setup times all from your dashboard.
Book Entertainment has a flag system should you need to make changes to your event details before your event. There is also an out of hours support line to help you at your event.
