Above all, the most important thing is that all the children have an incredible amount of fun, everyone is thoroughly entertained and that the birthday child gets to feel very special on their birthday. Andy entertains with some or all of:

- A full exciting fun comedy magic show with audience participation.

- Brilliant balloon modelling - animals, flowers, dinosaurs, hats and other creations.

- Super fun puppet routine (with his magic mice, Bobbin the Raccoon and Stinky the Bird)

- Tons of fantastic games (he brings my own professional music system with PA and microphone), party dancing, mini-limbo.

- Close-up magic for kids of all ages.

The first hour: A few welcoming tricks and giggles for the children as they arrive, then I gather them all together for an interactive puppet show. After this we play a party game together followed by my amazing fun magic show (with loads of silly comedy, audience participation and proper impressive magic).

The second hour: After a quick five minute break to pack away the magic show I make balloon animals for the children while they are eating their party tea. Once I see most of the children are down from the tables I launch into super fun party games, and I provide my own quality music speaker system for this.

If there’s not enough time to make all the balloons during food then I finish off making balloons in the last ten minutes, and I will happily lead the singing of “Happy Birthday” when the birthday cake appears unless you wish to do it yourself.
Andy says: here you can find a list of the birthday party entertainment packages I usually offer. If you would like something different from my suggestions, for example if want close-up magic instead of puppets, or your plan is to have food at a different time, or you’d prefer to have magic round the tables instead of balloon modelling, then I’m more than happy to oblige and change the party schedule to suit you.

Above all, the most important thing is that all the children have an incredible amount of fun, everyone is thoroughly entertained and that the birthday child gets to feel very special on their birthday.
The first hour: A few welcoming tricks and giggles for the children as they arrive, then I gather them all together for an interactive puppet show. After this we play a party game together followed by my amazing fun magic show (with loads of silly comedy, audience participation and proper impressive magic).

The last half hour: either balloon animals for all the children (especially good if the children are having their party food at this time) or party games. If you have fewer than 15 children then I can entertain with both games and balloon modelling.
For a one hour party you can have a choice of:

•  The puppet show followed by a party game and then a 45 minute magic show (this is what I most recommend)
•  A full fun fantastic one hour magic show.
•  A 45 minute magic show followed by 15 minutes of amazing games.
•  If there are fifteen children or fewer, I can then perform a 45 minute magic show and there will be time enough to make them all a splendid balloon model each at the end.
MY MAGIC SHOW:

My magic show is original, inventive, very visual, and there’s absolutely loads of audience participation alongside my comical conjuring shenanigans. I get helpers up at every opportunity, especially the birthday child (though I never force them too if they are shy), and the whole audience is invited to help me in a variety of fun creative ways. The magic show is usually about 40 - 45 minutes.

I aim to amuse, amaze and astound with new funny and fresh routines keeping the children thoroughly thrilled throughout. My magic for younger children is jolly and colourful, my magic for older children is edgy and daring, and many of my routines appeal to all ages too.

MY PUPPET SHOW

The “performing animals” I entertain with are my magic mice, Stinky the Bird (a cheeky comic muppet-style puppet) and Bobbin the Raccoon (cuddly and furry - he looks real!). The puppet show is fast-paced and funny and is suitable for all ages.

BALLOON MODELLING

I can make up to 30 balloon models in a ninety minute or two hour party. If you have more than 30 children you may wish to consider having tricks at the tables instead of having balloon modelling (otherwise I can still do balloon modelling but I won’t be able to make one for everyone).

If you would prefer not to have balloon modelling then I entertain with tricks round the tables instead, especially “food magic” which is just as it sounds - magic with food!  Salt, pepper, ketchup, fruit, eggs, all of which I provide myself.

PARTY GAMES

I host a super session of fantastic party games. It also doesn’t matter how large a small a space you have to play games in, as I can adapt my games to just about any sized room. My games aren’t of a competitive nature so there are no winners or losers and no-one has to “be out”. I play musical games, role-play games, quest games and party limbo too. If appropriate, I often do performer-led party dancing and mini-disco fun, and sometimes I also do singing with younger children. At the end of the party I orchestrate a big cheer for the birthday child and a fond farewell, and sometimes I end the birthday party with a dancing Conga train. I finish off making balloon models for all the children so they all get one, and put music on for dancing for everyone else. Yippee!
On the day itself all I need is a sturdy table, on which I place my magic suitcase, with a plug socket nearby. If you have no table available please let me know as I can always bring my own (but I prefer not to as it’s a bit of a squeeze getting it in the car!). A stool or chair is also helpful, but not essential. I bring 10m of my own extension cable and can always bring more if you think I need more. Thanks.

I am Enhanced DBS checked and have public liability insurance of Ł10m.

I cover a wide area of the South of England, including South London (including, of course, SE and SW London), Surrey, Sussex, West Kent and parts of Central London, Berkshire, Essex and Middlesex too.

Please send me a quick email, or call or text me, then I can whizz over a jolly email full of party details and all the prices for all the packages.
