Something offering pleasure, diversion, or amusement, such as a play, a party, or a sporting event. It can also refer to a hospitable provision for the needs and wants of guests. It may be a form of edification, such as in a sermon or educational speech, but it is usually entertaining. Entertainment is often adapted for different scales, from an individual choosing private entertainment from a wide range of available pre-recorded products, to banquets and parties adapted to any number of people, to performances staged for thousands or even global audiences. The power of entertainment is shown by the way a story like Scheherazade can inspire a work of art in music, film or a video game.
