Punch Party!

Punch and Judy is a traditional favorite for Children's Parties, a show the Children will really love and remember, relive Grandmas yesterdays!

I also perform Juggling, Magic Show, Games and Balloon Modelling for every child.

I offer a 60 minute show or 90 minute show (plus an interval for the food and cake which is ideal if you are having a two hour party).

For booking details the best way to contact me is via email as I am often out performing shows but I will get back to you as quickly as possible, my email is haskerb@aol.com , please let me know the details of the occasion, your location and date, alternatively you can call me 07779 972571, to check my availability please click here

Also I have put together a top ten of my hints and tips on how to organise a successful party, please see further down the page. 


Balloon Modelling 
Top Ten Tips for a Great Party!

Having performed at hundreds of parties and events I thought I would put together a little list of hints and tips to have a great party, many of these you will of course already know and are common sense but I thought it worth putting them down as many people make these simple mistakes.

Tip 1. Make the parents clear about the start time of the party to cut down on late comers. 

Tip 2. Have the show first before the food, the Children will be eager to see the show.

Tip 3. Leave the balloons to me, or if you want extra balloons use them as decorations for the walls but do not have them on the floor, they will of course explode and this can be very upsetting for some Children, also they are too much of a distraction whilst I am performing, helium balloons are also not good for the Children to be holding while watching the show. A good idea is to tie some balloons at the front of your house/gate or venue so guests and me can find you easily!

Tip 4. Ask any Childrens entertainer who the hardest audiences are and they will probably say the parents! If parents are staying with the Children either encourage them to sit with their Children or to keep quiet at the back or go in a different room for a coffee while the show is on, often if you have a group of parents at the back of a room chatting away the noise can be incredibly distracting, especially in an echoey hall.

Tip 5. Do not give the Children food, drink or any other distractions during the show, I encourage them to join in and clap throughout the show and it can be very difficult to do that with a drink and popcorn in your hands/mouth! Save it for after they will enjoy it more.

Tip 6. I have seen many parents get very stressed whilst organising the food and tables etc, keep calm, relax, plan in advance and keep things simple.

Tip 7. If you are having a bouncy castle switch it off while I am performing, it can go straight back on as soon as I finish.

Tip 8. A follow on from tip 7, if you are having a face painter either have the Childrens faces painted before or after the show and make sure Children remain seated during the performance, likewise with candy floss etc.

Tip 9. Watch the show yourself, often if a Child sees the parents enjoying the performance it reassures them and encourages them to join in, especially if a little shy, you might even enjoy it too!

Tip 10. Keep the party shorter rather than longer, as they say less is more! I can do a one hour show or two hours with 15 minutes interval for food and cake which is more than enough.


A recent thank you letter....

Many thanks to Benjamin for a fantastic event and for keeping 35 x 6-year-old's mesmerised! Both the children and adults loved the Punch and Judy show. The magic act was a big hit and everyone went home very happy indeed. Thank you again, and I give you a very hearty recommendation!!
