What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is a broad term that encompasses many forms of cultural and artistic expression. Often it is associated with amusement or a sense of enjoyment, although the experience can be serious for example in ceremonial occasions or religious festivals. It can be applied to a range of scales: from a single individual choosing pre-recorded entertainments for their own use; through family entertainment centres which have grown into theme parks; to large performances intended to bring pleasure to thousands of people in the same place at the same time.
