Hi Andy, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for performing at Alfie's party and more. You worked so hard and are worth every penny and more I'd say!! From the minute you walked in you were in character and created such a great atmosphere for all the children to walk into. You kept them all engaged for the whole 2 hours and I cannot tell you how many comments we have had from. Other parents about you, and how "that was the best party ever". We really didn't expect so many parents to stay but I think they too were having such a great time they didn't want to leave!! Anyway I will pass your details around to all I know. Very best wishes and thank you once again. Louise.
Hi Andy, Just like to thank you for your excellent performance in front of 30 children of various ages at our wedding reception. The children are still talking about you and you definitely have that special quality that all good quality children's entertainers have - you make them laugh and grab their attention for a couple of hours so that parents have some peace and quiet and the children do not start running wild. You exceeded our expectations by running overtime because you kept on making balloon sculptures for children who continuously came back but you never complained. Well done! I would like to recommend you to others. Regards, Tim.
Hi Andy, Just to say a big thank you for all your hard work yesterday, you was a real godsend. Amelia and the guests had a fantastic day, despite the weather. And what brilliant balloon modelling, I loved the flowers and bees. My sister is still laughing over the nappy on the head dance, unfortunately I missed it. A great, great, great two hours, thank you so much, if I've recovered by next year we would love you to come back. Best wishes Michelle.
I just wanted to let you know that Magic Boo was a real hit with the kids and was perfect for the event. I would also like to add that he was incredibly flexible (as we were running late) with the time and in the end gave more of his time than what we paid for. Even as he was leaving, and I know he had personal commitments to get back to, one of the kids had not participated in the show and wanted a trick especially for him, and Boo was more than happy to oblige, even though I know he had to go. He was thoroughly professional and a true artist. You could clearly see he was loving performing for the kids. I would highly recommend him. Kind Regards, Nikki.
Hi Andy. I just wanted to say a big thank you from all the team at Shooters Hill Children's Centre. You helped to turn our fun day into an amazing day and for that I am very thankful. Everyone loved you and many stayed most of the day so they could see what you would come up with next. You worked very hard and kept both children and adults (including myself) very entertained. Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you again. Carly.
Hello Andy, I just wanted to say the biggest thank you for your magnificent performance yesterday at Sebastian and Benjamin’s birthday party - everyone who attended has commented on how fantastic you are. If you ever need a recommendation please do not hesitate to ask. We really appreciated your wonderful attitude throughout and the way you stayed later and provided above and beyond what was required of you, you really are the perfect children’s entertainer and we feel very lucky that we were able to book you. Have a marvellous day and thank you again. Jay.
Hi Andy. Thanks so much for Raphaela's entertainment this afternoon. You did it so well - a fantastic success. I'm not sure I have seen kids that age ever so engaged by an entertainer. So thanks again for a marvellous performance! Julian Nott (composer of the Peppa Pig music for the TV, and for Wallace and Gromit too!)
Andy was the first entertainer we have ever booked. It was our youngest child Lucas’s fourth birthday party and daddy was a bit tired of years of entertainment. So we took the plunge, booked 1 1/2 hours - and it was great. Andy arrived 45 minutes early, ostensibly to set up. But with multi-tasking aplomb, he also put on a little private show for our two children while we waited for the guests to arrive. During the main show, he had all the children enthralled, was never thrown or flustered by his audience’s various demands and unpredictable behaviour and seamlessly worked his beautifully interactive magic to have everyone jumping and dancing in the end. Many thanks, Andy, it was also great entertainment for the adults! We’ll certainly be booking again. Best wishes, Kirstin
Hi Andy. I have finally found 5 minutes to write and say how happy we were to have you at Katie's birthday party on the 26th April in Bromley. She has NOT stopped talking about it since and many of her friends have said it was the best party they have been to. You were so patient with a group of very hyperactive 4, 5 and 6 year olds and managed to keep them enthralled and laughing for the full 2 hours. It meant that we could enjoy watching the children instead of hurrying around and have a much more relaxing time as hosts. We also really appreciated you staying the extra 20 minutes to make ballooons for everyone and to say goodbye to Katie, the birthday girl, personally. I cannot recommend you highly enough and please feel free to use this as a testimonial! Kind regards & thanks again, Helen
Hi Andy, Thank you for providing us with great entertainment yesterday. A great time was had by all both young and old, as you had something for everyone. I would definitely hire you again and recommend to anyone who needs a confident and accomplished entertainer. You made Katrinas 13th birthday even more special. Thank you, Lilian
Hi Andy, Thank you for the show. The children really enjoyed it. They haven't stopped talking about your magic tricks. The pitch was perfect for the clever bunch. The adults and children loved every minute especially your saw in half trick, plus your comedy act. Very engaging And highly entertaining. Thank you, Zabina.
Hi Andy. Thank you so much for the wonderful party you did for Stella and Lauren today, it was absolutely perfect. You are are great at what you do, right down to dealing effectively with the 'know it all' kids! Stella is normally very shy and it was great to see her running around with such a big smile on her face and even standing up at the front with you. Best of luck for your wedding, I hope you have a really lovely day. Best wishes, Anthea.
Dear Andy, Just to say thank you so much for your shows today! All the children and staff really enjoyed the afternoon and it was a great success. Hope to see you next year (with the added sawing a teacher in half perhaps!?!?) Have a great weekend! Alexandra Dodd, Assistant Headteacher, Key Stage One
Dear Andy. A huge thank you for hosting Millie's party so brilliantly on Saturday. The children adored you and the parents had a great time too! In the end it was almost 30 children - I'm in awe of how you managed to keep them engaged and under control, especially given the 'excitability' of a few! It was great to hear them all laughing and shouting out and losing themselves completely, you created such a fun atmosphere. Thank you too for the extra time you gave to make sure they all had a balloon and for really getting the party going from the start. It took all the stress away from me... Millie had a fabulous time, in fact we're all still taking about it. I'll definitely be passing your details on to parents who have been asking for them. It's possible we'll see you again then! Thanks again. All the best, Jane.
Hi Andy, I just want to reiterate how brilliant you were at Oscar's party today, you had a difficult task with so many children but you had them all captivated from the beginning and I was very impressed! Many of the parents came up to me and said what a brilliant find you were and I have to say I totally agree! Thank you so much for making Oscar's party special, you really made it a memorable experience. Thanks again, Anne.
Hi, Just wanted to say thank you for a lovely party on Saturday the boys really enjoyed it and I have had several parents telling me their children did as well. The boys have had 3 magicians at parties over the last 3 years and yours was by far the most captivating of the shows I would not hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again, Jan.
