our parties

We have three options:

1) 1 hour – 60 minute entertainment set straight through. Usually, the set will end with the entertainer leading the children to the birthday table once they have finished the 60 minute entertainment set, to allow you to provide the children with the birthday tea. With this option, you have the choice of making it a shorter party (e.g. 1.5 hours total) or you could organise an activity for the second half (e.g. pass the parcel), to make the party 2 hours in total.
– This entertainment options runs for 60 minutes straight through, without a break.

2) 1.5 hours – 90 minute entertainment set straight through, inclusive of a 5-minute mini-break after 1 hour. Usually, after 1 hour, the children are ready for a drink and a couple of minutes to reset. Normally, the set will end with the entertainer leading the children to the birthday table once they have finished the 90 minute entertainment set, to allow you to provide the children with the birthday tea.
– This entertainment option runs for 90 minutes straight through, inclusive of a recommended 5-minute juice break after 60 minutes, and leaves the food for the end of the party. 
 
3) 2 hours – this option means the enetratiner will be present for the duration of the party, which runs for 2 hours, inclusive of a break for the birthday tea. Usually, the enetratinment sets will consist of two halves with the folowing approximate timings:
  • First half – 60 minutes of entertainment
  • Break for party tea (approx 15-20 mins). This is usually a good point to do the cake and sing happy birthday as well, once the children have finished eating, as it allows you time to get the cake sliced and into party bags during the second half. 
  • Second half – approx 40-45 mins of entertainment.
    – This entertainment option runs for 120 minutes, inclusive of a break for the party tea. 

NB: Wanting a longer entertainment set or party duration. No problem – extra time can be added if required at an additional cost.
