Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Im helping out to organise my mess Xmas function. Has anyone any tips/ideas for post meal entertainment? We've already got a good band and disco but obviously we would like more. I don't really want to go down the cariacaturist/magician as thats been done to death.

    What stands out from all the other functions you have been to?
  2. Try getting a really good comedian or comedy duo. I put one on in the mess at Middle Wallop 20 years ago and it went down a treat. Steer clear of magicians (boring as hell) or after dinner speakers (unless they are very very interesting or funny). I did 2 years as PEC of the Wallop mess and loved every minute of it. How much is your budget??
