Magic & Puppet Show
My most popular options for parties are:
- One-hour comedy magic and puppet show.
- Two-hour party package with disco games.
- Three-hours with a circus skills workshop.
One-hour Comedy Magic & Puppet Show
My comedy magic and puppet show features talking puppets, amazing magic, circus skills and lots of audience participation. It is very comedic with jokes and offers lots of opportunities for children to join me on stage and help within a routine.
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).
Two-Hour Party Package with Disco Games
In the full two-hour party package I take over all the entertainment throughout the entire party.
We begins with hula hoop games as the children arrive before I gather everyone together to sit down and watch the magic & puppet show.
If they are eating during the party, it is often best to schedule it after the show. I require a few minutes to put the show away, before playing a music game with the children while they eat or making balloon models (if appropriate). After they have finished eating I gather everyone back at the show area for the birthday cake. We try and follow this up with a big group photograph.
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.
We then proceed into the disco party games with activities including Group Dancing, Musical Bumps, Musical Statues, Birthday Boss, Colour Corners, 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 one and two-hour show.
In the third hour, I bring out my Circus Skills equipment which includes Hula Hoops, Kendama, Diablo, Plate-Spinning, Wobble boards, Yo-Sticks, Peacock Feathers, Stilts and other activities.
I go around the room helping the children learn the various skills and develop new hobbies.
For some events I am happy to mix-and-match the activities, such as a Magic and puppet show followed by a circus skills workshop. Or a Magic Workshop with a Dancing Games session. Give me a call to discuss.
Prices vary depending on travel distance, and when your event is. You would need to contact me with your event details to get an accurate quote.

There is a £50 deposit required, with the remaining balance due on the day.
