Unfortunately, this isn't something we are able to allow.  We pay a premium to purchase "DJ only" audio tracks that are licenced by Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) and MCPS. These tracks are supplied in the highest quality.  Streaming sites can provide a lower quality of file which when played through our system might be noticeably lesser quality than what we pride ourselves on.

DANCE FLOORS

What Size Dance Floors Can You Provide?

The dance floors come in 2-foot sections and are usually fired square or rectangular.  For example, you may choose to hire a floor 16ft by 16ft for an evening of dancing or maybe in 4ft wide by 40ft long to be a star-lit aisle you walk down as you get married.


What Colour Floors Can You Provide?

The two most popular floors we are asked for are the Twinkle Star-lit LED floors that come in plain White or Black with a high-gloss finish.  If you are more a traditional dance floor person, we provide the much-loved black and white chequered too without LED's.

We have access to a wide range of dance floor thanks to friends of ours who we are able to work with.  They can provide Purple | Red | Blue | Pink.  We have access to more unusual colour selections such as Green | Yellow | Orange | Mirror | Zebra Print | Giraffe Print | Snow Flake | and many more. Examples of these can be found on our Dance Floor page.

Our prices include the fee associated with local delivery, set up and removal.  If this fee is increased for any reason, we would let you know before agreeing to the hire.

GIANT L.O.V.E LETTERS

What Size Are The Letters?

Each letter is 4ft tall and around 2ft wide.


What Colours Can The Lights Produce?

We use intelligent LED technology in our Giant LOVE Letters which are able to produce eight different colours: White | Red | Green | Blue | Ice Blue | Yellow | Purple | Ice White.  An example video can be found on the website.


Can The Bulbs Flash?

It is up to you! - They can be set to a solid colour or be set to one of the 130+ patterns the controller allows.


Do The Bulbs Get Hot?

The bulbs are all low power LED so are safe if a little hand was to touch one by mistake.

Absolutely! You can choose to hire the letters for the whole day or for the evening.  You can even package them with one of our other services.

PHOTO BOOTH

How Big Is Your Booth?

Our biggest and most popular booth is our "Top of the Shoots" oval-shaped booth which measures 2.3m in length, 1.3m wide and 2.1m tall.


How Many of Us Can We Fit In The Booth?

We allow up to 5 people at any one time.  This can be limited to 4 depending on the behaviour of your guests, especially the intoxicated friends.  This is to lower the risk of damage to the booth.


Can Children Use The Booth?

Absolutely they can! Children absolutely love dressing up and getting in the booth.  We can provide a mini step for the children to stand on so they reach the height of the camera.


What equipment do you use?

We use a high quality professional Digital SLR camera to take the photo's (No iPad's or Webcams for us!) and use a professional Mitsubishi dye-sub printing to give a lab-quality professional 6x4' photograph within 20 seconds and the print will be dry, fade-free and waterproof straight away.


Can You Make Custom Templates For The Photograph?

Yes.  All our templates are made by our operators for each event.  This is made prior to your event and made with your details on.  For examples of this, pop over to our Classic Photo Booth Section.


Does The Booth Come With Props?

Grab a prop and strike a pose is what is said! - Dress up to your heart's content. Or go in as you are! You've spent time and effort getting ready so why not show off as you are.

SWEET TREATS

What Sweet Stands Do You Provide?

You can choose from our very sweet vintage sweet cart or you can take advantage of our Ferris Wheel and Mini Sweet Cart.  The Vintage Cart does hold more products than the Ferris Wheel.


Do You Provide The Sweets and Which Ones?

We can do yes or we can leave this to you.  In most, we supply well-known varieties manufactured by the likes of Tuck Shop, Haribo and Millions.


Do You Provide The Sweet Bags, Jars, Tongs and Scoops?

We can do yes or we can leave this to you.  It is your choice.


I Have Seen Doughnuts On Your Cart. Which Ones Can I Have?

You can choose from Ring Doughnuts with coloured icing and sprinkles, jam-filled doughnuts or even Krispy Kreme all of which are freshly made on the day and displayed on our vintage styled sweet cart.


Can I Take The Left Over Sweets/Doughnuts Home?

Yes.  If you would like them, you are more than welcome to them as we cannot use them again. If you leave any when we are packing down, we will take them away and dispose of them for you.

BOUNCY CASTLE

What types of Bouncy Castle Do You Have?

The Oxford Disco and Karaoke Bouncy Castle is a large 16ft x 15ft A Framed castle.  It stands 12.5ft tall so really is an impressive size.  It is powered by a 2hp fan "blower"


Can Adults or Children Use This Inflatable?

Our castle is good for children and adults, even those over 1.8m tall. (Which many castles are not)


Can The Castle Be Used In The Rain?

In general, we try not to use the equipment while it rains for H&S reasons.  The castle does have a built-in rain cover to protect against those little spots of rain that fall.  If it is raining more than just very light "spitting" then the castle must not be used.


Can I use the Castle In Doors?

Yes, as long as it fits safely and can be anchored down.


Will You Hire Out For Pay As You Go?

It isn't usually something we provide.  This said we have done so successfully at events such as Football Tournaments and Charity Events where large numbers are guaranteed. There is a refundable charge, but we love to do our bit and join in with the community.


Is the Castle Properly Maintained and Insured?

Yes, it is. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile ensuring we lower risk.  The castle is subject to tough annual PIPA testing by an independent company.  Our business insurance covers us for £5million of public liability.


What Power Do You Need?

1x 13 amp UK plug socket.  If needed, we may source a generator blower.

BOOGIE BINGO

What is Boogie Bingo?

Boogie Bingo is growing fast as the best version of Bingo where we have replaced the traditional numbers with much-loved music tracks playing the best 15 to 20 seconds of every track.  Once we play the track and call the title of the track out, you cross it off your game card till we have a winner.


How Long Do Games Last?

The games last up to twenty minutes per game.  In reality, the games do not last the full amount of time because the games are won before the last track is called.


What Do You Win?

This is totally up to the client.  You are also free to choose how many times claims can be made per game. For example, you can choose the games to play for a single line winner before moving onto a full house winner.

When the games are played publically, the client tends to choose cash prizes for the winner(s).  This is made up of a percentage of the money taken in sales per game.  Usually, the prizes increase in value as we move on through the games.  This helps build tension and excitement as the game's progress.


Can You Choose Who Wins?

No, sorry.  The tracks are played at random.  The hosts are unable to tell you which game card is going to win.  We are unable to choose if there is only one winner or more for each winning call.


What Games Can You Play?

We have games ready to play but given enough time to prepare, any game can be made for a client.  For example, if you wanted a game where only Elvis Presley tracks were played, this would be possible.

The games we have ready to play already are:

  • The '60s & '70s Soul & Motown
  • Hits of the 1970s
