How to book last minute New Year’s party band hire

Christmas and New Year is famously busy for lots of industries, and party planning is no different. Venues are often booked up before summer, and decorations are harder to get hold of the closer you get to Christmas.

If you’re making a last minute booking, here’s everything you need to know to make sure New Year’s is still a good old knees up.

Finalise the RSVPs

Confirming how many people are coming is a must.  People tend to have their New Year’s plans sorted quite far in advance.

If you’ve got 100 guests due to descend, and your entertainment has dropped out, you can still honour the original invites. Collect your RSVPs as normal and book the right kind of act.

If you’ve had to change details, or you’re just confirming numbers now, remember you might have more (or fewer!) people attending than originally planned. You should choose entertainment that can be flexible and appeal to lots of different potential guests.
