messageentertainer for 5th birthday party
Posted by Anna D 24 November, 2014 12:22

We are in the market for an entertainer for our daughter's birthday party which will take place in a church hall. I've just been quoted a staggering £250 from a magician we enjoyed at a friend's party recently.

Are they all that expensive?!

Also - this person was quoting for 2 hours, saying he didn't take 1 hour bookings. Is this also standard?

Any tips/recommendations appreciated...

I cannot remember the cost, but we had Tricky Toby at my daughters 4th birthday party, and she still speaks about him! He easily entertained 20 children for two hours. See his website below ....

I have booked Mr Fruitcake for £130 for 2 hours, he also does 1 hour for less. I haven't seen him yet but if you do a search on here he has some good reviews....

I was a bit shocked too! We've also hired a church hall, so the costs really mount up. I've now ditched the idea of entertainment and am faced with the prospect of entertaining 30 six year olds myself!

We had Juggling Joolz who was much cheaper and excellent Joolz S-H Big recommendation!

Mr Fruitcake was a huge hit at my son's 4th birthday. The kids absolutely loved him and he performed at the nursery as we are having the kitchen done at home. My son is normally quite shy – have never seen him so engaged and happy at a party.

Hello,

Last Sunday we had Miss Danni from GDND academy and she did a great Entertainment for my son's 5th birthday party
IT was a street dance/dance game party

She entertained 22 kids at my place, mainly boys, (only 3 girls)... so challenging! 19 kids followed the entire entertainement (1hr) totally amused and captivated!!

My son is used to attend her street dance class at StBarnabas Parish Church every Wednesday.

She is furthemore also much more affordable than the others entertainers we've had over the last 3 yrs .... where all those others was AT LEAST £100 per hr!

Here are her details if you want to have a look!

Miss Danni
GDND ACADEMY
School founder & Principle

www.gdnd.co.uk
07904 424 504

With her good price, I've been able to also hire a face painter (I've used Sue, recommanded on EDF and she was amazing too!she is childminder over the week so has a great approach of the kids and is using very good brand face painting products as I was very concerned by that due to my son's extremly sensitive skin)

Finally, I extended the budget package of the party by using a very nice local photographer recommanded to me after a post on the family room discussion section...called Tricia (can give you her détails if you want to)

It was a fantastic party and all the kids (especially my son) had an amazing time! Definitly a great souvenir for my boy!

Good luck!

I've booked Danni at GDND academy for my son's 5th birthday too - sounds like great fun and a bit different from the usual magician / clown type entertainment smiling smiley

Thanks for the recommendation!

We had a pirate party with Lucy sparkles this weekend for my so. Who was 4 but there was childre there aged 4-7 and she kept them all engaged and very happy with how much the children enjoyed themselves. It was £80 for 45 mins which was more than enough as they were sweaty messes and desperate for a drink and rest after that.

We took our son to a 4th birthday party last weekend with Fairy Gossamer and she was amazing - the kids were all captivated and loved every minute. Our boy is a couple of years younger but was still completely entranced. She was really lovely, a total pro and made the whole party super easy. We will definitely be using her or her husband (Wally the Wizard) when the time comes and would highly recommend to anyone. Their website is [www.wallyandgossamer.com]
