Yesterday on the 15th December 2012 we co-ordinated our biggest challenge yet. We were asked by the events team at Selfridges to provide an 80 piece gospel choir for a Christmas shopping soundtrack with a twist! The Selfridges 80 strong choir appeared in a ‘flash mob’ moment, acting as shoppers perusing the store to then suddenly erupt into song, singing a medley of songs and carols to capture the spirit of Christmas. The choir were spread out between 3 floors creating the most amazing acoustic sounds as each voice ricocheted throughout the store. But…don’t take our word for it, follow the shoppers reactions on twitter! #SelfridgesChoir
At Ents-Rep we are midway through our busiest Christmas yet! We’ve had the pleasure to partner with Selfridges shopping centre and provide entertainment throughout December around the store. We were given the brief of ‘Not Your Usual Christmas’ to co-inside with the Christmas campaign created by Bruce Webber and to further compliment the extraordinary Oxford Street Christmas window displays. We love nothing better than to put our thinking caps on, get creative and come up with fresh unique ideas.
With this in mind, we came up with the following bunch of acts entertaining shoppers until Christmas Eve:
Tea Ladies – Join our comedy cockney festive Tea Ladies roaming the store being loud & proud, always on hand to revitalise tired shoppers with delicious herbal Christmas tea.
Pudsey Bear – The lovable Pudsey Bear from ‘Children In Need’ will be roaming the store spreading Christmas cheer to all the girls & boys.
Favour Fairies – Whether you need help carrying your bags or hailing a taxi, the sparkling Favour Fairies will be whizzing around the store on roller skates, ready to offer you a hand with your shopping schedule.
The Wise Wizard – From Thursday to Sunday each week you’ll find the wise old wizard demonstrating his extraordinary magic tricks around the store.
The Human Jukebox – Hear your personal favourite Christmas song played just for you with our jukebox musicians. Seen both roaming the escalators & in the Christmasy Jukebox on level 3.
Be sure to join us in store for ‘Not Your Usual Christmas’! Here is a little taster of what to expect.
