Book Entertainment Launches In UK

Book Entertainment, the world’s first online booking engine for event entertainment, has been launched in the UK by a firm from Derry-Londonderry.

The new platform allows those seeking entertainment for any event type to find, research, price and book the perfect acts for the occasion in just a few clicks.

The entrepreneurs behind bookentertainment.co.uk set out to revolutionise the way acts are secured for all kinds of events, from weddings to conferences and parties to festivals. The platform is designed by co-directors and founders Keith Donaghy from Derry-Londonderry and Denis Finnegan from Cork to do for the entertainment industry what Air B&B, booking.com, Uber and Just Eat did for their respective sectors.

Launching the new UK-wide service, Managing Director Keith Donaghy explained how Book Entertainment streamlines the entire process for consumers and acts.

“Our aim was to streamline the process of booking entertainment for events of all sizes and with the Book Entertainment platform we have achieved this. Book Entertainment is the only booking platform of its kind - it has transformed both the way consumers source acts and how entertainers secure gigs while also eliminating the middle man.

“I have worked in event and entertainment planning for the last 16 years and know only too well how frustrating and time consuming it can be trying to find the right act, at the right price, at the right time.

“I’ve been watching closely how companies like Uber, Air B&B, Booking.com and Just Eat simplified processes for consumers in their industries and I wanted to create something similar for event entertainment.

“It was clear that every enquiry received by my Entertainment Ideas company centred on the price and availability of an act. Ninety-nine per cent of my time was taken up by finding how much an act costs and whether or not they would be available for dates requested. I realised customer’s problem was also my problem and that streamlining would improve the process for everyone from the consumer, to the act, to the facilitator. That’s when the wheels were set in motion for bookentertainment.co.uk

“Users of the platform can search acts from musicians to magicians and toastmasters to circus performers by video, price or show rating. They can find out availability and price instantly, ask questions, spread payments, hold an act for 24 hours or book them there and then.”

For acts the platform is an easily accessible marketplace where they can list their services, show real-time availability and receive instant bookings.

“Book Entertainment empowers entertainers to make an income doing what they love without any of the logistical hassle or agent fees. Our unique platform automates all the admin and time-wasting tasks while allowing entertainers to focus on being passionate about their performances,” Mr Donaghy said.

He adds: “Since becoming operational in August, Book Entertainment has around 800 acts around the UK registered on the platform and the number is growing everyday.”
