Georgina, co-founder of ShowSpace says: “The idea for ShowSpace popped into my head during my work as an events coordinator for a care company. I would plan events and fundraisers, booking entertainers to perform on a regular basis. I was working with some very poorly people who didn’t have the luxury of being able to go out to the local theatre or music venue. I had to bring the entertainment to them!
I always strived to provide a range of entertainment, anything from dancing troupes to petting zoo's but finding performers was a difficult task. I’d often spend hours on the internet trying to find new acts that were both local and within my budget. It was hard to know the standard of the entertainer I was booking.
The majority of my entertainers were amazingly talented; however it took me a great deal of time to find them! I needed a fast way of searching for an entertainer based on category, location and price. I wanted to be able to see an entertainers act before I decided to book them, through video, a sound clip or a photograph."
And so ShowSpace was born!
