Award Ceremony Entertainment

It’s that time of year and you have been tasked with organizing this years award ceremony entertainment. The problem is, last year’s entertainment was amazing, your boss has high expectations of you and this is your first time organizing such an event. You need to impress but you can’t just copy last year but you want to make it amazing so what do you do? 

Well you’ve made a good first step by heading over to Google and searching for ‘Award Ceremony Entertainment’. There are perhaps 3 styles of entertainment you could consider. 1st is a mobile form of entertainment – one that mixes and mingles between the guests such as a caricaturist, vintage acrobats, comedians, look-alikes or shillouettists (someone who cuts small silhouette shapes of your guests) 

The second form of entertainment is a static piece of entertainment. These might be stilt walkers who greet the guests, casino tables, dancers with disco ball helmets on or other award ceremony entertainment ideas. 

The third form of award ceremony entertainment is the one piece that takes place either on, during or between the award ceremony. This is often a stage piece such as a band, comedian, or after dinner speaker. 

However, there is one act which fits, exceeds and meets all of the criteria and surpasses them. 


Well if you are looking for something highly memorable, unique, fun, interactive, and engaging that will leave you to be congratulated for a job well-done then you’ll have to leave the ideas above at the door as they all fall short at some point.

Introducing - Duncan William - Incredible Award Ceremony Entertainment

Before you scroll further – you’ve possibly realised now that Duncan is a professional magician. But wait.

Duncan is a million miles away from your pre-conceived ideas as to what a magician is. There’s no sleazy patter here, no bow ties, no doves or rabbits. In fact Duncan’s act isn’t even 100% magic. There is a healthy dose of mind-reading.

Have you ever hired a magician or mindreader as your award ceremony entertainment?

Despite what most people think, only a small fraction of the population have experienced close up magic live in front of them and an even smaller number have experienced a professional mind reader. 

This certainly ticks the box of something unique – but what about the other attributes a professional magician or mind reader can bring to your award ceremony or event?

Versatile, Interactive and Memorable Award Ceremony Entertainment

Duncan’s mind reading and magic will leave your guests laughing in amazement. What makes Duncan so versatile is he performs both close up and and as an after dinner entertainer. 

His close up is perfect for mixing and mingling between guests at your awards ceremony before they sit down to dinner and before the award ceremony starts. This is perfect for breaking the ice between guests and bringing guests together. His act is sophisticated, classy and lots of fun. This is perfect for over the drinks reception, over the awards ceremony meal, or later on in the evening after the awards have been presented.
