We aim to provide an indication of the likely costs for booking a speaker.

Celebrity speakers are generally rigid on fees, however in certain cases (usually a charitable angle) they will negotiate slightly. Expenses will vary depending on where the event is, and may incur additional costs such as accommodation.

You only pay VAT on fees where the speaker is VAT registered personally.  When booking speakers / comedians under £1000 its likely there will be no VAT element. 

Professional comedians and certain sports stars can be more flexible on negotiation as factors such as the date / location and notice of booking have a bigger impact. Generally fees are inclusive of most expenses unless stated at time of booking.

Whilst we are constantly updating the website to reflect current fees, the speed at which a profile can change means fees should be taken as a guide only, and may go up as well as down. Please ensure you get an official quote from this office with regards to your enquiry to confirm latest rate.

Whatever happens, you will know the total cost of the speaker before you commit to  a booking.

We operate from a home office which means we don't have the overheads of a large unit, ensuring we keep our overheads to a minimum. We pride ourselves on being competitive on fees, but not at the expense of high quality service.
