How to Book a Children’s Entertainer in London in 10 Easy Steps

Nowadays buying a product or a service online seems to be like a piece of cake. You just google what you need, then choose and buy. It is simple like that. It is really simple when it comes to booking a Children’s Entertainer In London as well. But you have to consider these 10 tips below!

Choose a Party Theme

This is the first thing you have to consider when you plan your kids birthday party christening party or other event. The best way to do it is to find out what your child will really enjoy. Because that’s what the whole event is all about – making your little ones happy! Your kid might dream for a Superhero to come to his/her party or a Princess, or even a Pirate! Or perhaps they will enjoy a magician or a clown. All the rest of the party preparations are made according to the party theme – so make sure you choose the right one! 😉 

Choose a Party Date & Time

This is a quite important part of planning your event as well. For example you wouldn’t like to organise the party on a weekday simply because your guests won’t be able to turn up due to work commitments which automatically means that their children won’t come as well. And trust me your kid won’t enjoy their birthday party without all of his/her friends and classmates.

Choose a Party Venue

You might think that the best place to make your kids birthday is at your own living room. And you might be right if you have a really big living room! 😀 But as a Children’s Entertainer that has performed at many kids parties I will advice you to consider hiring a church hall, village hall, community centre hall, restaurant or even a football field (if you plan to have a Football Themed Party). You just have to find the right venue for your event on google. When choosing the venue bear in mind the kids will need plenty of space to run around and play the birthday games. 

Choose a Children’s Entertainer

It’s important to do this right after you book the party venue as Children’s Entertainer often get booked 2-3 months upfront. And you don’t want to miss the best entertainer for your party, do you? Booking the entertainer is an easy task – you either get a recommendation/have seen an entertainer at a party or you simply Google It. All you have to do is go onto the entertainer’s website and check the reviews, different packages and themes he/she offers, check the gallery and preferably choose an entertainer that has a Public Liability Insurance and DBS Check. The last one is not mandatory by law but is always good to know that the person you are booking is trustworthy. 

Prepare the Decorations

Although you have now booked your entertainer this doesn’t mean that the party planning ends here. You still have to consider decorating the venue you have previously chosen. Of course it has to be decorated according to the theme you have chosen. For this task you have plenty of options to choose from – you can either make the decorations yourself or buy them and simply decorate the venue on your own. In case you wouldn’t like to do this on the day of the party you can simply book a professional Kids Party Decorator to do it for you!

Order the Party Food

A traditional birthday party runs for around two hours and halfway through there is a Party Food Break. Are you ready for this? It is again up to you to decide whether you want to prepare the food yourself or order pizza at your event! In both cases just make sure there is plenty of food for both children and adults!

Order the Birthday Cake

No Kids Birthday Party can go without a Birthday Cake with Candle Blowing and Hip Hip Hooray at the end! It is really satisfying to prepare the birthday cake on your own and listen to all your guests compliments on how well you have done. But that is only in case you are really good in that! 😀 If not – don’t hesitate to order it!

Invite the Guests

Handing out your invitations is a vital part for the success of your party! Imagine that no one turns up at your party or instead of 30 guest you get only half of them. To avoid all of that you have to make sure that your invitations are not only beautifully made but also well informative.

Get Your Party Bags Ready

No Party Bags – No Party! That’s how the kids logic works. For them it is impossible to imagine a birthday celebration without getting a party bag at the end! So make sure you have Themed Party Bags! 😉

Have Fun

This might seem to you quite obvious but it is not always the case. Most parents believe that the children’s entertainer will arrive there and make the party happen. This is true (if the entertainer is a good one). But if the adults don’t genuinely have fun – don’t expect the children to start jumping and dancing at your event. Children need to follow someones example and most of the time this someone is their parents! So a good advice from me – Mummies & Daddies don’t be shy, have fun and show your children that this world can be a better place if we enjoy it together!
