Derby Childrens Entertainer Frequently Asked Questions.

Here are answers to some of the most common questions asked.

What is the minimum age you recommend for a childrens entertainer at a Birthday Party ?.

Whilst our Birthday Party packages are suitable for children of all ages.  The best age for a childrens entertainer is when the children are from 4yrs old upwards.

How far in advance do I need to book a childrens entertainer ?

It is never too early to book a childrens entertainer.  Magic Stuart gets booked up a long way in advance and so if the party is not too far away it is always best to get in touch first to see what availability we have before booking a venue.
For weddings we take bookings regularly 1 or 2 years in advance to ensure that their requested day and times will be available.

Contact us.

What space do you require ?

Some parties are in village halls and some in houses.  Different venues will have different amount of space but as a minimum we just require a small amount of space so that the children have enough room to sit down and see the show.

How long do you need to set up ?

We will arrive 30 - 40 minutes beforehand which is ample time to unload and set up.

When do the children eat ?

With the full party 2hr option we will have a break in the middle, during this time we keep the children entertained by making the balloon models for them so there is no stop in keeping the little ones entertained from start to finish.

What special requirements will you require from us ?

The only main requirement we need is easy access to a power socket.  We do many outdoor events in marquees and so please ensure that there is power so that we can plug in the Pa speaker etc.  One socket is all we need.

My child has special needs, is that a problem ?

No, certainly not at all.  Just let us know if a child has any special needs and we will work the show so that they can be involved as much as possible.  This goes for any children that are invited to a party, we make sure that everyone has a great time no matter what concerns or difficulties they may have.

What discounts do you offer ?

Our prices are competitively based on what we offer.  If you take a look at the prices page you will see the different options that we offer and these can also be tailored to suit your needs.  We get fully booked up very quickly and so we believe that what we offer is a fair price.  We don't offer discounts and also, unlike some entertainers, we don't charge more for joint parties which is one way to keep your costs down.

Do you offer any party extras / add ons ?

We can provide party bags , colouring sheets and party invites.  Party bags are provided FREE with one of the party package deals.

How far do you travel ?

We cover the whole of the Midlands area.

How many children is the maximum allowed for the party packages ?

Whilst there is no maximum we would recommend that ideally no more than 30 children is best for a Birthday Party

Do you provide the prizes ?

Yes for all the party packages we provide all the prizes and giveaways.

Do you require a deposit ?

For Birthday Parties we sometimes require a deposit.  With wedding events a deposit is required with the final outstanding payment paid within 7 days of the wedding day itself.

What qualifications do you have ?

We have many years experience of working with and keeping children entertained at parties, weddings, school events, fairs etc.  All our electrical equipment is PAT tested, we are CRB and DBS checked and have full public liability insurance.

So why hire Stuart Magic ?

With many years experience we are able to tailor the party entertainment to suit your needs. Our entertainment packages are designed to engage active and imaginative children for the whole time we are there. With a Birthday Party it involves the birthday boy or girl as it is their special day. and will captivate them giving them a day that they will remember.  We also use a live rabbit in the magic show which children, and adults, of all ages adore.
