The Secret Singing Waiters – WHO WE ARE:
The Secret Singing Waiters are a group of professional actors and singers striving to provide the best entertainment for weddings, birthdays, corporate and social events.
Using the ingenious format of surprising guests by posing as venue staff and then breaking out into song we will bring a unique twist to any event. We aim to offer excitement, inclusion and fun and can guarantee we will get the party off to a bang.
When you hire us we will speak with you and organise a bespoke set of entertainment for your event. This will include a first set ranging in length from 30 - 40 minutes and then a second set of music if desired (different quote needed for the extra set). This can either be another singing waiters set or one of our evening shows tailored to your event. Our aim is to make the day as easy as possible for yourself and as such we will correspond with the venue to ensure we will fit with correct uniforms and responsibilities then on the day ingratiate ourselves with the staff so your guests will have no idea until the big reveal.
On the day we will arrive at least 2 hours before to setup our sound equipment and do a sound check to ensure the show goes smoothly for all concerned. We care about the shows we give and as such we only use the best equipment available.
The Secret Singing Waiters cast altogether have over 25 years’ experience singing across the world with many training at reputable Drama Schools and Universities.
Let us make your day special and give it that twist!

Totally awesome! We thought the drinks party my mum had arranged for her 70th needed something a bit extra! From the very first contact Craig was fantastic. Advising on the number of singers, performance time and playlist. It was all perfect. There were 40 guests having drinks and the secret singers fitted in just right! The guests and mum loved it! Totally worth it x

"Ann Beech Hired The Secret Singing Waiters for her Wedding at The Tudor Park Marriot Hotel, Wedding Event, Sussex
I first saw singing waiters advertised at a wedding fare, I thought they sounded like a great idea but my husband to be didn’t like the idea at all. After a few months of working on him we compromised and he picked the hymns at the service and I got my singing waiter. Up until the moment they started I think my now husband was still apprehensive over it, but I can honestly say once they started my husbands mind soon changed. They are really likeable people and had everyone laughing and everyone joining in, even people that I never dreamed of singing (ie: my husband) got involved and really enjoyed it. I can honestly say that for me it was one of the highlights of my wedding, no one expected it at all and every single guest (including my husband) said to me how brilliant it had turned out. I had the reception filmed and I loved watching it back and seeing how everyone was laughing, dancing and enjoying themselves. Even my husband agreed with me that it was a really good idea and how it had worked out really well. They worked so hard, it was a pretty hot day on the day of the wedding but they never stopped smiling. I can’t thank The Secret Singing Waiters enough for being part of my wedding and helping make it the best day of my life."

"Denise and Martin Booked the secret Singing Waiters for Their Wedding at Langtry Manor Hotel, Wedding Event, Sussex
Sorry for the delay but we have just got back from our honeymoon. Wanted to drop you a quick line to say a big thank you for the great job you both did in entertaining our guests at the Langtry Manor Hotel. We all so enjoyed it with some of the guests asking Martin and I if we knew that the waiters from Langtry Manor could sing when we booked the venue! That’s how good you were. Once again thanks for a very enjoyable and entertaining show. P.S my mum absolutely loved you both, you made her day"
