About this document

This contract covers a self-employed entertainer for a performance before an audience. Being relatively short and written in plain language, it has been designed so that clients will not be hesitant to agree to the terms proposed.

Particularly, it covers areas where disputes could occur, for example, expenses, prompt payment, emergency procedures and limitation of liability, and allows the entertainer to comply with requirements under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 if the client is a private individual.

For both sides, there are terms on confidentiality, protecting the entertainer as much as possible from negative reviews on social media.

Because the audience may be children, there are also terms covering parental absence.

The venue is not important. The performance may take place in a private home, in a rented room above a pub, at a corporate function or in a public place.

The client could be a business or a private individual, making this agreement suitable for use for entertainment at office parties, corporate events, birthday parties (both children and adult), weddings and other family celebrations.

The nature of the entertainment could be many things, including: DJing, music, acting, organisation of games, dance, magic, comedy, acrobatics.


This is a relatively straightforward contract, written in plain English. Matters covered include:

  • the basic contract, the performance, time and venue.
  • organiser’s control of children and adults behaviour
  • practical obligations of clients for insurance
  • entertainer’s account and expenses
  • confidentiality: protecting your privacy and theirs
  • limitation of your liability
  • mMiscellaneous legal matters: critical factors that shape the contract in your favour.

I decided to buy from Net Lawman as I felt the price was fair. I downloaded this contract for a job coming up and will use as a template going forward. It’s super professional without being too wordy. Easy to understand and clear. Thank you for an excellent product. Will definitely recommend to my musician friends.
