to look out for when booking a Children’s Entertainer at a Birthday Party
A Children’s Entertainer can be one of the best ways to organise a party for your child
and cost effective compared to other party options. The warehouse type party packages may seem like a good idea,
but when everything is analysed, they can offer poor quality at a high price.
A birthday party is your child’s special day. You want the attention being on them rather than on time frames.
Warehouse type of packages, have immoveable time constraints. They are usually not run in a way that makes your
child feel special. Booking a Children’s entertainer guarantees your child will be treated as the most important
person at the party. Every good children’s entertainer will make the birthday child the centre of the party. They
will tailor-make a package to suit your requirements as opposed to you having to suit the Warehouse times and
conditions. You can chose what happens, like having games, dancing, discos, magic shows, game shows, balloon
modelling and music quizzes. In essence you are in charge of the format of the party.
A good Children’s Entertainer will usually have many years of experience, so that they can cope with any situation
that may arise.
Every party is different, so you want to use an entertainer who has many different shows, so that your party is
unique and makes your child THE REAL STAR FOR THE DAY.
The cheapest entertainer may not be the best. There are entertainers who book a party at a cheap price without
taking a deposit. If a better show comes in, a small minority of cheap entertainers cancel the first party and then
does the more expensive party. A good entertainer will charge a fair price and ask for a deposit. A deposit creates
a binding contract between you and the entertainer, so that they are very unlikely to cancel your party.
A good children’s entertainer will have £10 million of public liability, which Equity Union members get
automatically and have PAT tested electrical equipment. Many halls and venues now require PAT tested equipment
certificates, so asking if the entertainer has these is essential. If they don’t, the venue may not allow your
entertainer to perform.
Finally a good children’s entertainer will also have a list of venues in your area that you can hire, saving you
time and cost.
A good children’s entertainer will usually have
• Many years experience
• Be able to cater for all ages
• Have a variety of shows, so that they can tailor make the package for your party
• Be able to cope with all age ranges
• Offer extras that make your life easy, such as providing Party Bags
• Be cost effective compared to other party options
• Use good quality sound and lighting systems for Discos
• Make your child THE STAR FOR THE DAY
