2. Children’s Magicians

There is nothing quite like the look on a child’s face when they witness magic for the first time.  Children’s magicians are well trained in entertaining children and performing simple magic tricks that will blow their little minds! Using small objects such as colourful balls, ribbons, coins and more, a Children’s Magician will usually require the help of a volunteer or two and get your little guests involved in the action.  A Children’s Magician is also very versatile when it comes to the ages of your younger guests as many older children will appreciate this type of entertainment too!  Want to book a Children’s Magician for your next event?  Click here to get started!

3. Face Painters

Face Painters are a firm favourite with children of Primary School age.  They are perfect for Summer events such as family fun days, outdoor birthday parties or charity events. Generally, a Face Painter will position themselves in a central location where the younger guests to your event take turns getting their faces painted and being transformed into animals, superheroes, princesses and more!  Face Painters usually have plenty of practice and can work to quite short deadlines, however it is worth considering how many children will be attending your upcoming event and how long it will last for.  Click here to find a Face Painter near you today!

Balloon Modeller for Hire

7. Costumed Characters

These days’ children love to watch television and movies and almost become one with their favourite characters.  Take Elsa from Frozen, or Spiderman!  Now imagine one of these characters turning up to your party and playing games with your younger guests?  This new type of entertainment is very popular and it’s easy to see why when you see children’s beaming smiles as they get to play hide and seek with their favourite character!  Click here to view all of the Costumed Characters listed with our entertainment directory!


8. Santa Claus

If your event is around Christmas time, sprinkle some festive cheer and hire a Santa Claus!  This type of entertainment will work for children of all ages, however younger children will really see the magic and be amazed as “Santa” talks to them.  You could even arrange for your hired Santa Claus to have a sack full of stocking fillers to hand out to children at your event too – making it even more memorable for them!  Want to find a Santa Claus for your Christmas event?  Click here to browse our selection!
