Welcome to 2021 and hopefully a better year for all of us.

With the vaccination scheme started and as I write , new case numbers falling, the May and June scheduled events may not be able to happen, but with a good wind and lots of crossed fingers, we will start again in July for a short but hopefully busy summer and autumn. We are already getting enquires for reindeer at Christmas bookings 😊

So, just to let you know that we are around in the office and here to help everyone- acts and displays , clients and newcomers alike, to forge ahead to the summer . A lot of acts have already been re-booked from last year to this ..but many early events may look at changing their dates and may need other options. We can help with this.

We have to remain positive and look forward to a time when we can all see that superb display of horsemanship or motorbikes using their horsepower to thrill you all with their stunts . To watching the fun of the Punch and Judy Booth , a traditional display which even wars and pestilence have not seen off over the centuries , and all those other performers just itching to get back out there to show off their skills .

So to all our friends, clients, performers and those just browsing this site for something to do while drinking their morning cuppa, remain positive ... it is hard but we have been through worse and making people laugh and have a good time is what we are all about.

So if it’s just a chat or for some advice for your next event – we are here to help. Drop us an email info@daubney.agency or even pick up the phone 07443 455161 /07725 981138…..it’s good to talk 😊

So remember - HANDS – FACE – SPACE – then we can get back to living life.

The Daubney Variety & Gala Agency was founded way back in 1918 by Harry Daubney, making us one of the oldest and longest trading entertainment agents in the UK. Always based in Derbyshire the Agency has had only 4 owners in its trading years.

The standards of service that were put in place almost 100 years ago, were of a higher standard than those found in many modern agencies today. Many of our professional event clients recognise that those high standards have been maintained into the 21st century by the current management team... Margot Wilding and Graham Calton.

Our customer feedback is always encouraged….good or bad – we need to know honest opinions as we cannot see every act at every show.

We are a member of the Entertainment Agents' Association Ltd – The Entertainment Agents' Association Ltd was established in 1927 to represent and enhance the interests of entertainment agents in the UK who were willing to be bound by a strict code of conduct and professional ethics. Because of its members' dedication to high standards, it has become a most prestigious organisation.

Our members working together

The Association currently boasts an extensive Membership of Agencies throughout Great Britain whose business activities cover virtually every field of Live Entertainment, handling performing artists and booking throughout the pop and rock music industry, television, film, radio, recording, theatre, musicals, cabaret, clubs, cruising and corporate and outdoor events.
