Mini Disco in some of our Hotels is followed by a game of Bingo. The Main event for the evening is a game night or a cabaret show organised by the entertainment team, you will be required to either DJ, host with a microphone or be responsible for the organisation of the show. Some nights you may also have an outside act come in to entertain the guests.
This is one of the most important aspects of being a good entertainer. PR means to talk to the guests, inform them about your program and become friends with them. All it needs is good communication skills. After every evening show, the entertainer is expected to PR, ask what they thought about the show etc. During daytime activities the entertainer should PR and promote the evening show.
