Hiring a Clown – Tips, Advice and How to Book


Clowns, you either love them or hate them but no matter which side of the fence you sit on, they do make perfect entertainment for all ages, particularly young children. We’ve put together this guide to give tips and advice for everything you might need to know before you hire a clown…

What Events Are Clowns Suitable For?

Clowns are suitable for pretty much any event, generally when children will be present. Hire a clown to add fun and games to the following:

– Childrens Birthday Party Entertainment
– Wedding Breakfast Entertainment
– Fund Raiser and Charity Entertainment
– Family Fun Day Entertainment
– School Event Entertainment

When Do Clowns Perform?

A clown will perform for parts of an event that you request and this does generally depend on the occasion. For a children’s birthday party, a clown will put on a performance for a specified length of time, or they can be hired for longer events such as family fun day a and fund raisers.

What Do Clowns Actually Do?

Clowns add an element of fun to any occasion and they achieve this by behaving very silly and in some instances a little mischievous. Each clown will have their own talent, however many combine comedy with juggling, magic tricks or sometimes face painting. Clowns are perfect entertainment for young children as they keep them amused and hold their attention easily.

How Long Will A Clown Perform For?

The length of performance on a clown is different for each entertainer. Many will offer a number of different length packages so it is always best to check before booking to see what is on offer. Some clowns will happily entertain for a few hours.




How Much Does A Clown Cost?

The costs to hire a clown vary between entertainers and it is possible that costs may increase during busy periods of the year. You can ask for a quote from your entertainer when making your enquiries.

What Should I Consider Before Hiring A Clown?

When hiring any entertainment, especially for children’s events, it is of utmost importance to make sure that your chosen clown has been police checked. This used to be known as CRB Checking, and has recently been renamed to the Disclosure and Barring Service. Also ensure that they have the necessary insurance for their performance. This is known as public liability insurance.

You can request to view their credentials and be wary of anyone without them. Never hire entertainment without the necessary documentation.

Other questions you might want to ask a clown before you book them include:

– Are you available on the date of my event?
– How long will you perform for?
– How much do you charge?
– How much deposit do you need to secure a date?
– What kind of things do you do?
– What contingency is there if you are ill?
– Do you have a cancellation policy if the event is cancelled?
