Catspaw Authentic Entertainment - v ery special entertainment for special events. Check out our workshops - especially the range of story workshops. Or make your party an event to go down in history with one of our shows from the Dark Ages, Medieval, Viking, Elizabethan periods. Our wedding listings offer something a little different for stag and hen and wedding entertainments.


The guests are welcomed by the hostess and some of her friends to this promenade theatre show in the form of a recital evening (predominantly poetry).

Once all guests are present the recital commences. Moods are carried from joy to tragedy, touching on issues of the day (late 1890s) through the poetry, prose and songs. For the right venues and shows one of the guests even plays harp for your entertainment! A maid and footman complete the atmosphere and can be involved in serving mince pies and sherry (and might even occasionally contribute their own pieces).

Costume, poetry and other performance pieces are all kept to the period to maintain the mood, even whilst the characters mingle with the guests in the interval.

Ideal for country house settings, genteel gatherings and large hotel lounges.
Some months notice is required!
