How to Choose a Children's Entertainer
When choosing a children's entertainer you need to feel secure you're getting someone really up to the job. After all, no one wants their children's party to fall flat by unknowingly hiring a cringeworthy amateur or someone who's just not able to connect with the children.
So how do you know you're hiring a good children's entertainer? Your first clue will be the price. Most good professional entertainers charge about the same. If you've found an entertainer who's significantly cheaper than the rest then you should question why they need to price themselves so low to get work. It's just the same as hiring a plumber or an electrician, if you hire the cheapest you can find the chances are you'll end up regretting it!
Your next clue is to study their website. If they put care and attention into a modern and friendly looking website it's a fair bet they also put care and attention into the way they entertain children and, of course, in the way they deal with you as a booker. Are there pictures so you know what you're getting? Does the entertainer look presentable and smart, or are they in a cheap and crumpled old clown costume? Do they look comfortable and in control, or do the photos shows a sweaty guy in a panic?
A good children's entertainer will also be in demand for big events. So are there mentions of other parties, events, tourist attractions or holiday parks where they've worked?
And of course do they have testimonials and reviews so you can see what other people think of them?
You should soon get a good idea or instinct of who's a good experienced and trusted professional entertainer, and who's not! As a parent you have the right instincts, so trust your gut feeling.
I care very much about being a GREAT children's entertainer. And I hope that comes across from the photos and details here on my website. (If you do see any errors on this website please let me know!)
I've entertained audiences at festivals, major tourist attractions and shopping centres and of course many many hundreds of children's parties of all sorts and sizes in homes, gardens, halls, marquees and living rooms all over the country, for many event organisers, schools, celebrities, politicians and of course many many many ordinary Mums!
Here's what a few of them say about me, plus a list of some of the larger events and parties I've been hired for.
If you'd like me for your party or event please send me an email with the date, location and what you're after and I'll get right back to you with the price and details.
