Hi Andy. A huge thank you for hosting Lily's party so brilliantly on Saturday. The children adored you and the parents had a great time too! In the end it was almost 30 children - I'm in awe of how you managed to keep them engaged and under control, especially given the 'excitability' of a few! It was great to hear them all laughing and shouting out and losing themselves completely, you created such a fun atmosphere. Thank you too for the extra time you gave to make sure they all had a balloon and for really getting the party going from the start. It took all the stress away from me ... Lily had a fabulous time, in fact we're all still taking about it. I'll definitely be passing your details on to parents who have been asking for them. It's possible we'll see you again then! - Marcia

Hi Andy, Just a quick message to thank you for entertaining at Luke’s party today even with the snow. We have never hired an entertainer for a children’s party before so we were a little worried about everything going well. We need not have worried as you were amazing! Luke had a fantastic time and has been talking about you non stop until he went to bed ! We have had lots of comments from the parents to say how wonderful you were too. Once again thank you so much for such an enjoyable afternoon and for making Luke’s fifth birthday one to remember. Kind regards, Caroli

Hi Andy. Just wanted to write and say a huge thank for your great show yesterday. The children absolutely loved you and you did brilliantly keeping them so entertained and enthralled for so long. To quote Joe afterwards 'that was AMAZING!' Many of the mums afterwards said how great you were so I have done a group email today to them all with your website details. Thanks again for such a great show and making Joe's party so special. All the best, Maria
