Party Entertainment with a Difference

Revels in Hand takes a time-honoured theatrical tradition and reimagines it for the 21st Century. The result is the ultimate in luxury party entertainment and a perfect treat for any occasion.


From Molière to Shakespeare, Restoration Comedy to classic British farce, choose from our selection of plays, or else commission us to make something entirely new.

Whether for your private party, office Christmas doo or client-hosting event, we provide the perfect ice-breaker and a piece of party entertainment that your guests will talk about for months to come. 


And remember, no space is too small for us. We’ve staged private theatre events for audiences of fewer than 10 and greater than 100. The magic of a Revels in Hand event is that your living room, office, garden or yacht can all provide the perfect setting for a fabulous piece of theatre.


Imagine your friends coming round for dinner, all dressed in their finest 1920s attire. As a little pause before dessert, you adjourn to the next room to watch some live theatre: a period comedy served up with as much fizz as the champagne itself. The ultimate original dinner party idea!

“What a wonderful experience you and your brilliant team of actors gave us. The performance was amazing… a memorable and brilliant evening.” Rebecca, hostess


Imagine Rosalind and Orlando play-acting their marriage scene in the middle of the very aisle where you just said your vows, and the ‘lover’s argument’ scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream playing out amongst your guests at the reception. An utterly unique and exciting addition to the wedding ceremony or an ideal way to fill that afternoon lull as the bride and groom disappear for photographs. 

“I can’t adequately express what a joy you and the cast were in our lives. It was an absolute blast, and we are already planning our next event with you.” Carolyn, bride

GARDEN PARTY @ Long Island Lakehouse

Imagine setting up a heap of deckchairs, cushions and picnic blankets in the middle of your lawn ready for a family-friendly Shakespearean comedy, played out for your guests in the blissful afternoon sunshine as the barbecue gets going and the rosé starts to flow. 

“It was amazing to have something so totally professional in one's own home.” Antoinette, party planner


Imagine surprising your loved one with a troupe of professional actors hired to perform a bespoke play in your living room - with the biggest surprise being to watch their friends and family taking on cameo roles!

“It was wonderful! Thank you and the rest of your company for a fabulous evening. We’ve only just managed to wrestle the last of the Prosecco away from the ladies!” Jane, birthday girl

MARQUEE GARDEN PARTY @ Oxford Country House

Imagine setting up a marquee in your garden and sitting back as a theatre company builds a set using furniture and objects from your very own home. Imagine them performing a one-act comedy as a shining start to the evening, and sticking around afterwards to share a drink with your guests: an opportunity to ask about the play, the characters – and the life of an actor!

“Thank you once again for an incredible performance on Saturday night - you made us look like superstars to our friends. Such a lovely cast too, we really enjoyed chatting with you over a glass of wine.” Robert, host


Imagine entertaining your ladies who lunch in real style, in a suite of one of London’s best-known hotels. Allow our Revellers to add the finishing touch to your afternoon in the form of light comedy for dessert.

“It was a perfect way to spend an afternoon together. The performance was absolutely hilarious!” Siân, patron
