What dates and times are you available?

We normally take on bookings that start at either 11 am and 3pm, however depending upon availability we can accommodate other times.

There is more flexibility with start times on weekday parties. Please call or email to check availability of your entertainer.

Are your entertainers DBS checked?

Yes, our entertainers can only work at a party once they have been successfully DBS checked.

All of our entertainers come from a performance background, whether it’s singing, dancing, acting or performance arts. We also run an in-depth training academy before any of our entertainers lead a party.

Where can I host my party or event?

The location of your party is entirely up to you. We’ll always do our best to adapt our games according to space, whether it’s in your home or at a hall. Check out our locations page to find out where we’re based.

If you know of any problems with traffic, roadworks or parking in your area please let us know so that alternative arrangements can be made.

Your entertainer  will arrive 20-30 minutes before the start of your party. If  there is any unforeseen delay we’ll always contact you to let you know [ so always have your phone to hand].

How much room do I need for a birthday party?

We’ll always adapt our games to suit the space at hand, but you entertainer ideally needs enough room for your little guests to sit on the floor comfortable in a circle. Larger rooms and halls of course are great but an average size room with a coffee table moved out of the way will do just as well.

What happens on party day?

What takes place at your party will depend upon which party you’ve chosen. Your entertainer will arrive before the party fully equipped with music, games, balloons and prizes. If possible please provide a separate changing room as this should be a total surprise for the birthday child and right from the beginning your entertainer will want to be in character.

The entertainer will provide everything needed for the party, apart from the food which should be supplied approximately an hour into the party. During the food break your entertainer will continue to interact with all the children, doing glitter tattoos or mini face paints. Please note one hour parties do not include glitter tattoos or face painting as the children become a little restless if not being entertained!

Your party hosts are entertainers and encourage all the children to become involved with the fun and games but if some children do not want to participate, the entertainer will always concentrate on the birthday child as it is paramount that they enjoy the party and are the centre of attention!

How many guests can I invite?

 You can have up to to 30 guests per entertainer. Larger numbers will need a second entertainer.

Can boys come to the party?

Of course! Boys attend most of our parties and enjoy them as much as the girls. If you’ve booked a princess party and anticipate boys being present we’ll make sure a number of pirate and superhero games are played so no one feels left out. We can even do parties dedicated for boys…

What happens if my guests arrive late?

The party is booked into the entertainer’s schedule and therefore cannot be delayed as she has a schedule to keep. If some of the guests arrive late, it is recommended that they join in the party on arrival.

What about special requests?

Of Course! we’ll always do our best to accommodate any special wishes or requests – Just call 01342 832 204 or email party@especiallyforyouparties.co.uk
