Really Grand Events Childrens Entertainers

Really Grand Events childrens entertainers will be in action for two hours at your child’s party.
The basic structure of this package is as follows and is based on a 2 hour party
A typical package for one clown/entertainer act costs €200 for two hours entertainment – plus possible additional out of Dublin county travel costs
The Birthday Child will be the centre of attention
  • 12.00: The children arrive (or maybe a few minutes earlier)
  • 12.00: The entertainer arrives dressed up as the agreed character (i.e. Clown, Magician, Nutty Professor). If you do not wish for a clown (for older children) entertainer can arrive in black with a fancy waistcoat! The introduction, magic or puppets or kids karaoke, games, routines, gags etc. will last about an hour. They will make little prizes as incentives for children to participate
  • 13.00: You can dish out the party meal and our entertainer will make balloon models with some party music playing. They bring their own music. Each child will get at least 2 balloons (sword and crown, dog on a lead, laser gun and holster, hypnotising snake, teddy bear with a love heart etc.). They always stay until all children have received their balloons.
  • 13:30: Stencil Pain Tattooing starts. These are painted on and will last a few days.
  • 14:30: (or later) Their entertainer will start heading off, providing all the children have got their balloons and tattoos!
