about handshake

For five decades, Handshake has been managing, promoting and producing all aspects of live entertainment; from one-off performances to worldwide tours, solo artists to full West End productions. 

We have represented and presented many national and international stars of stage and screen, and are incredibly proud to have artists we represented early in their careers on our roster to this day.

Over the years we have built excellent relationships with the theatres, concert halls and arenas we work with, and this, together with our extensive network of worldwide partners, ensures we are able to offer clients many and varied performance opportunities.

Our ability to remain flexible in an ever-changing industry is reflected in our unique approach to each project – we understand and appreciate the individuality of our artists and work with them as a team. From programming to marketing, production to logistics, Handshake’s friendly staff support every stage of their creative journey.

Our success is built on a wealth of experience, professionalism, trust and, most importantly, a passion for live entertainment – something which is inherent in the entire team, and immediately apparent when you meet one of us!
