I have been performing at children's parties since 1996 providing my magic & puppet show, dancing party games and circus skills workshops.
I have no limit on the number of children attending and have tricks suitable for all ages from toddlers to adults. The best effects will be chosen based on your children's ages, space available and how many times they have seen me.
One-hour Comedy Magic & Puppet Show
The comedy magic and puppet show features talking puppets, amazing magic and lots of audience participation. It is very comedic with jokes suitable for multiple ages and there are several opportunity for children to participate in a routine throughout the show.
I choose the best magic and puppets for your audience. For example I have a Unicorn and Mermaid puppet for girl parties and a crocodile and monkey puppet for boy parties. After the age of 9, I tend to do more sophisticated magic such as solving a Rubik cube and bending a metal fork with my mind. I pick what works best for your children.
The tricks will include routines to music such as manipulating stars that appear and change colour, and linking hula hoops together. Children will get to participate in the show by finding the missing piece of a jigsaw or making pictures appear in a book.
My show can be performed for a small group of children from the age of two or for an entire school of over 500 children. I can adapt to fit in the living room of your home, village halls or on the school stage.
Any birthday children are often first to come up and help within the show if they wish and when possible, the show concludes with a big group dance routine and all the children receiving a magic trick flyer (when appropriate).
Ninety Minute Session
A ninety session starts with the magic and puppet show, and leads straight into party games with a big group dance. We then play competition games like Musical Bumps and Birthday Child Boss. Then group games with the Play Parachute and the Conga. The best games are chosen based on how many are attending and space available.
Full Two-Hour Party Package
The two-hour party package is the show that is booked most often. I arrives thirty minutes prior to start time to set-up my equipment and music system.
The party begins with hula hoop games as the children arrive. I then gather everyone together to sit down and watch the magic & puppet show.
After a quick introduction, I perform a show choosing the best tricks for that particular group of children. With lots of audience involvement, talking puppets and magical illusions.
If they are eating during the party, it is often best to schedule it for this halfway point. I require a few minutes to put the show away, before heading to the dinner table to make all the children a balloon model (if appropriate for the number of children in attendance). I might play table games with them as well.
I can happily perform two-hours straight through (with no food break) at events such as school parties, christening and weddings; just let me know.
If it is a birthday party, after they have finished eating I gather everyone back at the front for the birthday cake. If appropriate, I try and follow this up with a big group photograph.
We then proceed into the party games with activities including Group Dancing, Musical Bumps, Musical Statues, Birthday Child Says, Hula Hoop Squash, Parachute Games, Scavenger Hunt, The Conga and Pass-the-Parcel.
The games we play will be chosen based on their age, number of children participating and space available. These games are played differently to avoid eliminations, keeping all the children involved throughout the party.
I provide all the prizes, balloons, music and equipment for all the games.
Three hours with Circus Skills
The three-hour package will start with everything that's included in the two-hour show.
In the third hour, I bring out my Circus Skills equipment which includes Juggling silks, Diablo, Plate-Spinning, Catch-the-ball, Yo-Sticks, Peacock Feathers, Trick sticks and other activities.
I go around the room helping the children learn the various skills and develop new hobbies.
The one-hour Magic & Puppet Show is £165. Ninety minutes featuring the show and games is £195. The full two-hour Party Package with balloons for everyone is £225 and the three-hour show with a Circus Skills Workshop is £275.
A £50 deposit is required to reserve the timeslot upon making a booking, with the rest payable on the day.
