In my quest to helping you have a stress free party, I talk about how you can keep the costs low at your party but still have the best entertainment around!
My most popular package is my 2 hour stress free party, at £220.
To some, this may be expensive and more than what they wanted to pay which is completely understandable.
When it comes to planning our children’s parties we have an idea of what we can afford and hope to find everything that fits in with that.
There will always be cheaper entertainers, but they charge that price for a reason.
It may just be a hobby to them, an extra bit of cash, they are new to the business etc.
However, if you worry about your entertainer not turning up, then it is always best to invest in someone that little bit extra for reassurance. There is nothing worse than having a hall full of hyperactive children with no one there to entertain them!
You get so much more for your money with my 2 hour package so I want to show you how you can afford to pay for this whatever your budget:
1 – SPLIT THE COST –
If your child goes to a pre-school, nursery, or school, see if any other child has a birthday close to your child’s and see if the parents would like to do a joint party to split the cost! That way, you can both have the best of everything, have the same guests and have half of the expense and stress!
2 – PAY IN INSTALMENTS –
I offer the option of paying for your package in instalments, whatever you can afford to pay in the lead up to your party is fine by me!
As long as the full fee is paid by the day of your party.
This is a very effective way of making sure you have the best entertainer and splitting the cost over the months and weeks.
I also ask for a non-refundable booking fee to secure your time slot. This secures your party entertainment whether you have a venue or not, so you can relax knowing the best part is secure.
3 – DON’T OVER DO IT –
Once you have booked my most popular package, there is no need for anything extra to pay out for to keep the kids entertained.
There is no need for a bouncy castle, mascot, face painter, etc.
Of course, I do entertain with these if they have already been booked in, but I find they are an extra cost.
I am enough to keep the children fully engaged and having fun without them being distracted by other forms of entertainment.
I also ask for any bouncy castles to be switched off whilst I am performing partly because of the noise of them, and partly because you are paying for me to entertain and if they are all bouncing on a castle, then you have just wasted £220.
Of course, I also offer face painting but I always recommend these as an addition to a party alongside an inflatable or mascot.
This is about keeping your costs low and not spending extra on things that you think you need but don’t.
4 – BOOK YOUR ENTERTAINER BEFORE THE VENUE –
Good entertainers are in high demand and therefore, the industry recommends to parents that they book the entertainer first.
That way you have the best in the business.
Halls are easy to come by, there are hundreds of them in our area but only one of me!
I have a list of reasonably priced halls on my website which you can browse through after I am booked and most are around £30 per hour so not too expensive.
You then have the most important parts of your party booked
5 – DON’T PAY FOR EXTRA HIDDEN COSTS –
With my £220 package, there are no hidden costs, everything is included in the price and that is it.
I appreciate that parties are expensive so I try to give you as much value for money as possible and that includes excellent customer service or your money back!
To find out what is included in this, you can email me for an information pack.
If you have any other ways of keeping the cost low at your party, please let me know so I can share this with other parents, as everyone has a different way of doing things.
