Throughout the day we will build a rapport with your guests so they will have no idea what is coming. Our aim is to be seen as much as possible by your guests performing staff activities as the more we are seen the more convinced they will be that it is a normal event.

As mains are cleared by the waiters this is when we jump into action and start our performance with a custom reveal be it dropping a tray of cutlery, an announcement, an argument, or jumping straight into a song.

Our sets last from 30 minutes to 45 minutes and whichever length you choose we guarantee to have you guests singing along and waving napkins to finish on a grand finale!

    Great Surprise Brilliant Performance

    These two were so lovely. They were there for the whole day and had everyone in stiches during the performance. My daughter kept asking them for all sorts thinking they were actual waiters and they kept in character so when they started singing she was even more surprised. Loved them and would book them again in a heartbeat.

    Brilliant performance and service

    Thank you so much to Robin and Dom for performing at our wedding at Birdsall House. Robin and Dom were a huge surprise for everyone and were so brilliant and funny! They got everyone up dancing and really got the party going. They are honestly fantastic – we would recommend them to anyone. One of the biggest highlights of a wonderful day.
