Are you reliable?
I pride myself on offering a professional service, and I’m proud to say that in over 20 years I have never missed a show or party. This is one of the reasons why I do not book other entertainers or act as an agency. I have a really fun job but take it very seriously and want you and your children and guests to have the best experience possible.
Are you police checked?
I am DBS (formerly CRB) approved. Also, for your peace of mind I am a full Equity member, all of my electrical equipment is PAT tested and I have Public Liability of 10 million.
My prices are clear and fixed and include prizes for the games, a balloon model for each guest to take home and a special giant balloon sculpture for the birthday boy or girl.
The prices are…
2 hour complete party (the most popular) £200
90 Minute party £180
1 Hour party £140
Is it best to book Magic Mr Steve first or the venue?
It is always better to book me before you do anything else as there are a large variety of venues in every area and only one me! I tend to get booked up quickly especially over the weekends.
What happens if I need to cancel?
If you do need to cancel, there aren’t any charges but do please give as much notice as possible.
Do I need to supply anything?
No, I bring everything I need with me including all the prizes for the games. Just supply the venue, guests and the party tea. I will do the rest.
What time will you arrive at the party?
It takes 15 minutes to set up the show but I tend to prefer to arrive 30 minutes before so that I can chat with the birthday child and put them at ease.
My child is very shy, will your entertainment be suitable?
I very often entertain at a child’s first party and can more often than not put them at ease. For shy children, I sometimes get them to help me set up the games before the guests arrive. It’s a good ice breaker. I am always very aware of how the party is being received and adjust my performance accordingly. No party is the same, which is one of the reasons that I love my job!
How many children can I invite to the party?
It is entirely up to you, I don’t have an upper limit, although for parties which include games, it is better to keep numbers below 35.
Can I have the party at home?
Yes! I can bring the party to your home. The only thing I suggest is that you clear as much space as possible for the children to participate in the entertainment and enjoy themselves.
Are balloon models provided for all the children?
All of the children will take home a balloon animal but please let me know if you are expecting more than 40 guests.
How should I pay?
Payment is made in cash or cheque on the day either at the start or end of the party, if you prefer to pay by cheque then please make it payable to S. King. You can also pay via bank transfer. The details are on the booking contract.
Can I have a joint party?
Yes, joint parties are welcome as long as the children are of a similar age.
Do you bring music?
A full sound system is provided and is loud enough for even the largest of church halls. Let me know if there is any song or band the birthday boy or girl would particularly like to be played!
Are you available for midweek parties?
Yes, this is my full time occupation. Midweek bookings are available, not just after school, but any time of the day.
