How Many Children Can I Invite To The Party?

You can invite up to 20 children to the party. You can invite additional children for a cost of £7.50 per child. Please advise the party co-ordinator of the number of children you wish to attend as we may need to send additional party workers.

What will my involvement be?

Our Party Leaders or entertainers will discuss with you on the day how involved you want to be. You can be as involved as you want to be, or you can sit back and relax and let us do everything.

Can Siblings Stay For The Party?

If you have not gone over the 20 children, unexpected guests or siblings can stay. Young children will need to be supervised by an adult. We tailor each party to you, and we may only bring enough items for the amount of children originally booked and some craft items may not be suitable for very young children. Please tell us as much as you can about the guests before booking the party.

Are All The Party Leaders And Entertainers Checked And Insured?

We do a police CRB check for every employee. Every employee is first-aid trained and will carry a first-aid kit with them to every party. We have Public Liability insurance and the party leader will carry a risk assessment document with them. We take health and safety seriously and we will also provide you with a printable guest list/register so you can record your parent emergency phone numbers and children's dietary needs on the day. The team will have received our internal training on how to deliver an outstanding party.

What will happen on the day?

Our Party Leaders or Entertainers will arrive 30 minutes before the time of the party to set up the decorations and discuss with you exactly what will be happening on the day. Everything will be done by us, and we will leave the venue as we found it. The party leader will either arrive in costume, or will put it on before the guests arrive. Some of our party leaders may be travelling by public transport and will not want to arrive in full costume!

Can children with additional needs attend the party?

Our parties are fully inclusive to all children, and we welcome the chance to work with children with additional needs - although we do ask that you tell us in advance if any children at the party will have additional needs so we can be sure the activities are suitable.


What happens if the party is disappointing?

Book with confidence - our parties are guaranteed to please. We encourage you to try and resolve any issues with the party leader on the day, or to contact the party co-ordinator - however, we are so certain you and your child will be happy with the party, we will offer you a full money back refund if you are not satisfied with the party.


Can you provide Party Bags?

A party isn’t complete without a party bag! We can take the time, effort and stress out of arranging these bags. We can provide fully themed party bag, simply let us know the number of children coming to the party, and we will do the rest. Each child will have 3 small toys in their bag, along with balloons.
Cost: £2.50 per bag.

Can you provide Discos/Other Entertainers
