Potty the Pirate - Childrens Magician - Lancing, South East Event Location: Brighton Event Type: Birthday party 8th February 2020
Hi Potty, I just wanted to say a huge "thank you" for all your efforts at Connie's birthday party yesterday. She had a fantastic time and all her friends agreed that you were "awesome" with a couple insisting that I speak to their Mums so that they can have you at their party. It can't be easy entertaining that many 5 year olds but they were totally enthralled and were still giggling into the evening. You were, as ever, totally professional and took away all the worry so that I even managed to enjoy the party myself which I can assure you isn't usual! The fact that we have booked you so many time and still find you so entertaining is testament to your fabulous skill in giving all the kids (and grown ups) a fun filled party. Thanks yet again.
