It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure this happens.

Our Team Of Children’s Entertainers & Workforce

If in the unlikely event and through no fault of our own, the entertainer or services you have booked are unable to attend your event, a suitable replacement will be provided. If a replacement cannot be provided you will receive your deposit back in full. This does not apply if you are unable to go ahead with your booking, or if measures beyond our control are in effect, including but not limited to, government advice, pandemics, public protests or acts of god. In these circumstances, we will do our best to accommodate the transfer of your deposit to any other date available and for any service we provide. But, should you decide not to continue with your booking your deposit will remain non-refundable.

We reserve the right to refuse a booking or to cancel an existing booking for any reason. This includes but is not limited to, if a customer is abusive or threatening in some way, or we feel a booking might put an entertainer or staff member in a dangerous, inappropriate or uncomfortable position.

Payment

Unless you have already paid the balance in full, the remaining balance for the entertainment of service must always be paid in cash on the day to the entertainer(s)/staff.

The remaining balance for a booking is payable to the entertainer(s) on the day in cash immediately after the party entertainment is completed. Please note staff cannot accept discount vouchers & cheques.

Payment is requested straight after the entertainment is completed. We regret that the entertainer cannot be asked to wait for payment as they may have to leave straight away to get to another booking. If the entertainer is made to wait for payment longer than 10 minutes after they were booked to finish the entertainment, an additional fee of £15 is applicable and must be paid to the entertainer on the day of the party. Additional fees of £15 will be applied, for every 10 minutes extra the entertainer has to wait for payment. The entertainer cannot wait longer than 30 minutes for payment.

If the entertainer/staff is unable to wait for payment due to other commitments, or you do not have the means to pay the entertainer/staff then the payment will be processed using your deposit card plus an additional fee of £30.

What we need to conduct the entertainment:

Please note that with all our parties should a entertainer require a table this must be provided. Usually a trestle table (about 6ft long) is the best type of table. If your party is in a venue then usually this will be available but please do ensure that one is available or we may not be able to do the party.

We will need access to electricity. Usually, if the party is indoors this will be no problem. If your party is outside we would ask you to ensure there is access to electricity. If you are using extension cables/leads for outside then please ensure the cables are running along completely dry ground and they are not in contact with any wet or damp surfaces.

We cannot be responsible for not being able to provide activities that require electricity, due to power failures or tripped circuits at the venue we are operating in.

During the party, the customer must ensure at least 1 adult is present in the same room for the entire duration of the entertainment. This is in case accidents should occur or children need to go to the toilet. We regret, for safety reasons, we cannot conduct the entertainment unless at least one adult is present in the room the entire time.

During our parties, we ask that no food or drink is provided during the actual entertainment that might distract children from the entertainment whilst it is happening. E.g. buffet food out on a table for children to access.
