Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Poppy always tries her best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

When I go out singing my 40's tribute sets I tend to balance my set to ensure theres enough dance type songs and sing a long songs.

This is the second time Poppy has been with us. She is always a professional, arriving in good time,setting up and starting her first set quickly. Her voice and song choices again suited our audience. We will be re-booking Poppy again in the future

We had the pleasure of Poppy helping us to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and my 50th birthday. We chose Poppy as we had previously enjoyed her set in a local pub on New Year’s Eve and Valentines weekend. Poppy entertained our family and friends and most definitely impressed. The evening was a blast the varied games and vast variety of songs sang had the dance floor bouncing. I highly recommend Poppy and would most definitely book her again.

Poppy Holiday- what can I say!! Other than that she is a superb entertainer, she sings superbly, she’s got a gift of being able to get others interacting with her and others effortlessly. When singing she can operate puppets at the same time, how does someone put others at their ease without issue? Well that’s Poppy, everyone at our event was over the moon with Poppy and when next we have an event it’s Poppy we will call on!
