Live Entertainment

Adding televisual magic to your performances

We work across the leisure industry to add excitement to live entertainment sets. As a result, you’ll see our work everywhere from UK holiday parks to Mediterranean resorts and luxury cruise ships. Using animation, design, and heaps of imagination, we create captivating visual experiences for the audiences at live shows and musicals.

Our animated screens work seamlessly alongside with the action on stage. Colourful characters win the hearts of guests. Heart-warming storylines, dynamic sound effects, and interactive experiences all work together to add extra polish to your productions. It’s our creative approach that sparks a deeper connection with your audiences.

We’ve now established BIG SCREEN CREATIVE

A dedicated division of the business to focus on and showcase the content we create for LED walls and all types of big screen for live shows and events.

Take a look at our new website to see lots more examples of our work:  

“The Charactershop have produced and brought to life an array of fabulous characters and backdrops, enhancing many of our stage shows at Butlins. They are professional, creative, meticulous and always a pleasure to work with.”
