Staffing and entertainment agency

Hayley Selway (Owner)

Hayley started as a professional dancer, working for Princess Cruise lines for many years. Her experience led her to a career in event management and she began working for Benson’s Agency, alongside the previous owner Tricia Darns. Hayley eventually took charge of the business after Tricia retired and now operates a successful event staffing agency and bespoke entertainment provider across the UK and Europe.

Hayley has delivered street parties, VIP events, conferences, meet and greets, right through to running hospitality programmes for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro. She takes immense pride in her work and ensuring that her clients are 100% satisfied with the service they receive.


  • Renault UK has enjoyed a fantastic relationship with Benson’s for more than 20 years. The relationship has evolved and grown over the years and has made Benson’s a true and valued partner that provides stand management and promotional staff for a range of events from motor shows, exhibitions, staff party’s and dealer conferences. The team members are always of the highest calibre and superbly presented. We look forward to developing this relationship further.

  • Benson’s offers an excellent hostess and entertainment service for our events, exhibits and conferences. The hostesses that are chosen for each event always have a background knowledge of the brand that they are representing and often will have worked for the chosen brand on multiple events previously. Benson’s can provide an onsite hostess manager which is a great asset to their services. The onsite hostess manager will oversee hostesses taking data capture and working on registration, giving you confidence that all delegates are being provided with an excellent, positive experience that reflects the brand.

  • Thank you to Benson's for providing us with a hands on hostess for our clients and guests in Sweden for the duration of their stay, from start to finish the hospitality staff was superb and everything ran much more smoothly. We look forward to working with you and your exceptional staff in the near future.
