Christening Party Entertainment Ideas


If you have recently had a new arrival in your family and are planning their Christening, have you thought about putting on entertainment for the party that follows the service?

Christenings are joyous occasions and although your little bundle of joy will be a bit young to join in with the celebrations, there may be other younger guests that would appreciate some entertainment. Here are some fantastic entertainment ideas for a Christening party.

Children’s / Kids Magician

If your Christening party has many children attending, hiring a children’s / kids magician can keep them entertained for a few hours. Both children and parents alike will be grateful of the entertainment provided by a children’s magician. These performers are experienced at making little ones laugh and be amazed at the tricks unraveling before their very eyes!

Face Painters

If your Christening is in the warmer Summer months, why not hire a face painter for children? A face painter will magically transform all of your little guests into animals, superheroes and fairies, as each one takes turns getting their faces painted. Children of pre-school or primary school age will appreciate this form of entertainment most.


Clowns are a favourite for children of many ages, so why not hire a clown to entertain the younger guests at your Christening party? Clowns will act very silly and mischievous – even offering other entertainment on occasion, such as juggling or magic tricks.




String Quartet

If you are wanting to create a sophisticated, relaxed ambiance at your party, hire a string quartet – not forgetting the grown-ups too! String Quartets will play beautiful background music during your celebration, and consist of two violinists, a cellist and a viola player. Many have a varied repertoire and if there is a specific song you want them to play, check with them beforehand to see if they can accommodate your request.


If your budget won’t allow you to book a string quartet, hire a cellist, or other instrumentalist to provide the background ambiance at your Christening party. Hiring an individual musician may be a cheaper option, but they still sound extremely beautiful too!

Close-Up Magician

To add a bit of magic for the adults, hire a close-up magician to mingle with guests and perform a variety of illusions using small objects, such as coins, balls, rope and borrowed bank notes from guests. (They always give them back – don’t worry!)
