How to Hire a Celebrity for Fun Events

We like to make things simple and affordable at Thrillz. That’s why we’ve partnered up with your favourite celebrities to help you create unforgettable experiences. Wanna know more? Here’s how you can hire a celebrity for events in 3 simple steps.

Traditional ways to hire a celebrity 

Many people go via a celebrity booking agency to source and book talent. The tricky part about this is that it can get quite expensive and super time-consuming really quickly. Allow me to demonstrate:

1. You Google ‘hire a celebrity’ and get slammed with several options. (It’s a bit overwhelming.)

2. After filtering and clicking a couple of links, you’ve found a site that looks legit. Jackpot!

3. Now you’re browsing for the celebrity (let’s say it’s Kerry Katona) and see there’s no price listed. (That can only mean one thing…)

4. You call or email to enquire for a price – this may take between 5 minutes to 24 hours depending on the speed of the agency.

5. Finally, you’re told that you’ll need at least 10K in your pocket. (Oof!)

Now, those 5 steps look like an expensive effort. Busy people like you need not bother themselves with that hassle or bank-breaking prices. I wonder if there’s a way to make that process seamless… oh wait!

Use Thrillz Live to hire a celebrity 

Fortunately, we’ve made hiring a celebrity 10x more simple – and we don’t charge extortionate prices either.

Step three: Select the celebrity and book direct. We’ll liaise behind the scenes and confirm your booking for the date and budget.

Type of events that would be great to book a celebrity appearance

Perhaps you’re just browsing the net and wondering what other cool events would call for a celebrity booking. Here are a list of ideas:

  • A birthday party: What better way to hit those milestones than with a celebrity appearance? A special surprise for a 21st or 60th birthday.

  • Student socials: We’ve got a tonne of Love Island stars that would be perfect to book for student nights. Whether it’s at the university union or a popular club, make it bigger and better with a star. This will be a sell-out!

  • Work social: Turn those corporate work parties into an interactive and startastic night. From sophisticated After Dinner speakers like David Gower to singers like Kerry Katona – how could you say no?

  • Private members nights: Engage with your members and host a night to remember. We’ve got an amazing selection of sports legends that are available for private bookings. Perhaps an Evening with John Virgo is on the cards?

  • Workshops: School, university, team building days – you name it. Hire a celebrity to give a motivational talk to inspire the audience and make the event memorable.

Your upcoming events are going to be the highlight of the year – at the lowlight price.
