Virtual entertainment experiences at the House of Talent

It’s one of most frequently asked questions of last year: “What’s the first thing you’ll do when the world opens back up?”

And one of the most popular answers is “go see some live entertainment”.

With the vast majority of live experiences cancelled in 2020, everyone is missing the buzz you get from being entertained. That’s why we’re launching our virtual venue, the House of Talent.

It’s an immersive virtual venue with two stages to explore.

Whether you want improv, breakdancing, puppets, club performers, musicals, sketch shows, classical drama, a capella singers, modern dance, circus, cabaret, burlesque, boylesque, clowning or live music, you’ll be able to find it, and more, in the House of Talent, home to the best in virtual entertainment experiences.

And because one of the joys of entertainment is the bonding experience of watching it with others, our virtual venue is perfect for companies that want to bring their staff together and lift morale.

Welcome to the House of Talent, home to the best virtual entertainment experiences

Last year so many entertainers saw their plans scuppered as venues were closed down and shows cancelled. The entertainment industry is now facing it’s biggest challenge. That’s why we’re working alongside entertainment agency Sternberg Clarke to provide a platform for acts to perform.

It’s a chance to support the entertainment industry whilst offering you the opportunity to experience what we’ve all been missing; the sheer joy and escapism of watching a performer give it their all.

Starting out in the entertainment business is hard at the best of times but trying to get established during a pandemic is almost impossible.

You have to get out there and promote yourself but how can young people facilitate that when they can’t currently perform?

There could be a lost generation if we don’t give people performance time to develop their careers.

That’s why we’re choosing to launch our House of Talent on April 22nd with a celebration of young British talent.

We’re delighted to announce that the first event at our venue will be the final of #GetTheGig; an initiative that’s will seen young performers across a variety of disciplines, from dance, music, comedy to circus and everything inbetween, compete to enter.

How does the House of Talent work?

The #GetTheGig talent competition is a great example of the type of content you’ll discover at the House of Talent. Let’s face it, we all like being that person that saw an act before them came famous.

An evening (or matinee) performance at the House of Talent is an uplifting way to bring your team together. It’s a virtual venue where the platform enables you to experience a choice of virtual entertainment experiences. Expect to discover up and coming acts but also exceptional entertainment from experienced performers. The House of Talent caters for everyone and includes performers from the worlds of circus, music, magic, comedy and dance, all of whom are experienced in delivering virtual entertainment.

Join the queue for entry as the buzz builds about your visit and the chance to see a line-up packed with emerging and established talent.  Once inside the House of Talent you’ll find two spaces; The Cavern which is home to new & upcoming talent and The Vaults where established acts perform.

And we’ve gone one step further than serving the usual warm beer or wine you’re often offered at clubs; instead you can choose to receive a box of party treats at home, tailored to your requirements, and filled with small plate snacks and craft beers or cocktails by leading caterers Caiger & Co.

All in all, it’s a jolly good show.

Experience the best in virtual entertainment at The House of Talent

To personalise your event, your virtual entertainment experience comes with a choice of over 30 activities. You can pick and mix to suit your goals, duration and budget, creating an event tailored to suit your company ethos.

Most of us finished Netflix’s months ago; we’re all craving a something new and exciting to entertain us so the House of Talent provides a chance for some inspiration.

Alongside established performers we’re also giving new acts a chance to perform. We really recommend you choose a young act in your mix of entertainment as it’s a great way to support young people who are trying to establish themselves and let’s face it, there’s nothing more satisfying that being the person that can claim to have seen someone before they became famous.

On arrival your MD can greet everyone with a welcome speech before you explore inside two performance spaces. Your chosen activities will be streamed from either the Cavern or the Vaults.

The event will last for approximately 90-120 minutes and during this time you are able to set up chat rooms so you and your colleagues can engage with each other or you can send emojis so the other party revellers know what you think of the acts. And if you want to hang out more, either in departments or more casually as colleagues, just send an invite asking them to join you at the Bar where tables are set up for video chat during or in-between performances.

Evolve Events went above and beyond to create a virtual party especially for us that was fresh and exciting, helping us to connect, motivate and inspire our staff during what have been difficult times for us all.

Before we hosted the event, I was a little skeptical about whether a virtual party would be able to engage and entertain staff, but I was delighted at the solution Evolve Events was able to deliver.

Our staff loved exploring the immersive environment of the Alpine Lodge, our chosen virtual venue. Features like the instant messenger and video chat functions encouraged social interaction and made it seem like a real party.

We also wanted to acknowledge how hard our staff had worked this year while Gary and his team managed to incorporate our award show into the Christmas party.

Thanks to Evolve Events and Caiger & Co we were able to treat our staff to a personalised hamper of food & drink and other Christmas goodies delivered straight to their door for them to enjoy from their homes on the night.

Gary and his team organised a fantastic virtual Christmas party for our agency at very short notice.

Initially, we were apprehensive as we had never done a big virtual event like this before, but the Evolve Events team were excellent at putting our worries at bay, with great communication and commitment from day one. Our stall were able to meet up with each other at the virtual Alpine Lodge for an evening of mind-blowing magic and entertaining bingo, all complete with fancy dress and food sent before the event.

A big thank you to the whole team!

The virtual Christmas Party created by Evolve Events for Electronic Arts was a great success in every sense of the word!

From the initial discussions with Gary through to the execution, our event was treated in the same away as a live Christmas Party would have been, and this attention to detail was key to the amazing experience for our guests and the extremely positive feedback I received both during the night, and afterwards.

The visuals and functionality within the Alpine Lodge were impressive, as was the quality of the live entertainment performances. And of course everyone loved receiving a food and party box delivered to their homes (especially the cocktails!)

It’s true to say that I was extremely apprehensive about the pressures of hosting a virtual Christmas Party, but Gary and his team were exceptional, delivering a truly memorable evening, and I look forward to working with Evolve again in the future.
