Performing Artistes act as consultants; we negotiate fees, issue contracts, and provide a full liaison between client and celebrity from initial enquiry to the final execution of the event. Choosing exactly the right person for your particular event can be a tricky business. A member of our experienced team will be pleased to help with advice over the telephone and will e-mail suggestions which fit your budget and your detailed requirements.
We do not publish fees on our website because many celebrities charge different amounts for different events. They can vary from as little as £500 up to £50k + depending on various factors which might include:-
- What the celebrity is required to do e.g. deliver an After Dinner speech or simply make a personal appearance
- The location of the venue e.g. UK or abroad, London or the provinces
- The day of the week, time and length of the function
Once we have most of this information we are more than willing to give you an immediate indication of cost.
Our database contains more than 3000 celebrity contacts, names and addresses. We are constantly adding to it. We have the resources and research facilities to contact any celebrity or speaker you maybe interested in.
Our Artiste Index is only a guide to some of the celebrities with whom we we work most frequently i.e. those known to participate in corporate events, personal appearances or after dinner speaking.
