How far in advance should i book a kids entertainer?

  • How far does a magician travel?
  • Are the most expensive kids entertainers the best?
  • How long should my party be?


It is a great please that i get to load the van with all my props and disco equipment and head off in the Leeds direction.

Some children’s Party’s are booked a year ahead, Some ring the day before, or even a few hours before! “Help, its raining, I’ve booked a bouncy castle and its going to rain, I’ve got 40 kids to entertain!!!!”

How far in advance should i book a kids entertainer?

So if your booking me or another children’s entertainer in Leeds, “How far in advance, should you book?”

I think to cover me here! i should say, as soon as possible! But if you did have other things planned and the rain stops play? It’s not too late to book a magician or kids entertainer!

We have a puppet show and a magician, both performed by different people. Usually if one’s booked the other isn’t! So there is a good chance you can still book a children’s entertainer in Leeds from us. Remember most kids entertainers travel upto 2 hours to get to a venue. probably a little less if its a birthday party. So don’t stress, give your local children’s party entertainer a call. if we can’t do it, we will recommend someone. Your last minute, so be prepared with pen and paper. you might be given quite a few names to ring.

Especially the magician’s will try to help you out.


How far does a magician travel?

If its for birthday party entertainment its typically 10mins to 90 mins. If it’s a big event like a fun day, sometimes it can be hours. Depending on how specialised the entertainment is. So if your ringing around entertainers and there area code does not match yours? don’t worry. still ring. you might even get a better price than a local magician?


Are the most expensive kids entertainers the best?

If your hiring the chuckle brothers for your event? then you know what your paying for!

But one kids entertainer is £50 more expensive than the other, is it worth paying the money.

I know one entertainment company that always made there prices 20% more expensive than other entertainers in the area. As most people assume you would get something more for your money?

In this case, i felt the booker didn’t get anything more, but i guess this could be a personal feeling and its hard to measure. paying the extra money, maybe they got the feeling of getting the best? maybe this feeling for worth the extra 20% im not so sure?


How long should a children’s party be?

Don’t measure what your getting by time! Some entertainers in Leeds might offer 3 hours of entertainment at the same price another entertainer is offering, just 2 hours.

In fact it’s the 2 hour birthday party that we recommend! Some people see that they are having relatives traveling great distances and the 2 hour party does not seem long enough for that reason.

The party is for the birthday child, so have the 2 hours. any longer kids will find too long. Even kids films don’t usually last more than 90 mins for that reason.

Do the party, Then any family members can meat up at the local pub, cafe. All the kids have gone. you can contratulate  yourself for a job well done. yet, now you can relax and enjoy time with family members.

So the ideal party time is 2 hours!

Well what can I say – Mark was absolutely brilliant!


The children loved him! The parents loved him! And we as IKEA loved him! He had every single person of all ages in pieces!


If Mark could do a show with all new stuff for next year, we would 100% book him again.


I hope that Mark feels like he was part of the IKEA family and that he himself enjoy the day too.


Please ensure this gets passed back to Mark

Mark’s Magic Kingdom – Christmas Party magician

Our children’s magician is getting ready for the Christmas season.

With lots of silly magic and “real magic”!

Mark had already bumped into Santa about 5 times. We have noticed that Santa’s costumes are becoming more elabrate each year. Magic Mark is expecting Santa to have real gold buttons one day. In most cases, his beard is real.

Its great to see the cheer delight as father Christmas enters the room.

Below is a picture taken at the Ikea Christmas party, what a wonderful job they did, getting into costume and making the Santa’s grotto.

This was taking place in one room and Magic mark was entertaining in another room. This worked exceptionally well, families had time with Santa to take photo’s and receive a wonderful present from Santa.
