Are you holding a private function and want to impress your guests? Past Pleasures’ corporate entertainment packages could be just what you’re looking for!

If you are holding an event at an historic site, what better way to entertain your guests than the historic characters who once inhabited it?

Excite and entertain your guests by having a beautifully presented costumed historical character to add intrigue to your event. We can provide a traditional toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies to ensure your evening event runs smoothly, famous characters to entertain your guests on tours with storytelling that brings history to life, or original theatrical skits to add a further dimension to your event. Past Pleasures has provided historical actors, singers, dancers, fools and musicians to a wide range of heritage sites, events locations and hotels, and would be happy to tailor-make an event for you. Our witty and engaging performers can:

• Greet your guests on arrival
• Take them on unique and fact filled guided tours
• Entertain with beautiful period music
• Lead your guests in period dancing
• Announce speakers or give instructions to guests
• Re-enact exciting events using stage-combat, such as sword fighting or duelling with pistols
• Present a theatrical skit to entertain your guests
• Create a stunning atmosphere using song

We cover any period and any theme – from Medieval Storytelling, to Shakespeare’s theatre, from the masques of Charles I’s court to the ballrooms of Victorian Britain. Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, anniversary or any other celebration, Past Pleasures can be the unique and unforgettable addition you are looking for.
