How to Book a Children's Entertainer for your Kid's Birthday Party

Decide what type of entertainer would suit your child's age group. There are many different types of entertainer to choose from, such as clowns, magicians, animal shows and puppeteers.

When booking make sure you are clear on their price and how long they will entertain at the party .

Age Appropriate

Advise the entertainer of the general ages and gender of the kids attending the party so as to ensure the performance is suited to the age group

Timing is Everything!

Book the entertainer to arrive about 15 to 20 mins after the party is scheduled to start so as to ensure all the kids have arrived

Double Check

Re-confirm the booking with the entertainer a day or two before the party.


Introduce the entertainer to the birthday boy or girl on arrival so that the entertainer can ensure the child gets special attention during the performance.


Have the entertainer's fee ready in an envelope before the party starts.

Just in Case

Have a few party games on standby in case the performance is shorter than you expect.
