Welcome to Alive Network, the UK's largest and leading supplier of live wedding music bands and entertainers

We've designed our service to make it easy for you to find the very best bands, DJs and entertainers in the UK, all from the comfort of your PC or device. If you don't have the time to browse through the huge choice of artists on our web site, or if you would like to get personalised suggestions from our expert entertainment coordinators, we are of course more than happy to assist.

Simply phone us on 0845 108 5500 or submit a quick enquiry using the form above and one of our coordinators will be more than happy to help.

How to make an enquiry

  • Browse our web site and add artists to your enquiry basket, then submit your basket as an enquiry to our team.
  • Submit a quick online enquiry brief by clicking the Make a Quick Enquiry button above (we'll suggest suitable artists for you).
  • Give us a call or send us an email using the contact details above and we'll discuss your requirements in person.
  • Arrange a face-to-face meeting here at our office HQ in Staffordshire.

How to make a booking

  • Inform your Alive Network coordinator that you would like to confirm a booking based on the quote that you've been given.
  • We will draw up a booking contract and issue copies to you and your chosen artist (view terms & conditions here).
  • You pay a non-refundable booking deposit to Alive Network (card, bacs, cheque) of between 20-30% of the total booking value.
  • Your booking is confirmed and you will be put in touch directly with your selected artist around 4 weeks before your event.

Five-star personalised customer service

You will be assigned a dedicated entertainment coordinator to help with your enquiry so you know you'll have the consistency of speaking with someone who knows who you are, what you want and the details of your wedding day.

We have built our reputation on a foundation of fantastic five-star customer service and whether you make your initial enquiry directly to us so that we play an active part in recommending artists, or you're happy to browse and choose an artist entirely on your own, you will always be able to speak with and receive help and assistance from your dedicated coordinator.
