Potty Patrick would be delighted to entertain at your event. I make sure the entertainment suits the ages of the audience. I am equally at home with a very young audience age 3 or with an older group age 7+ or even for a family party, adults included.
1) Big birthday party/ Mini Disco (This is the most popular choice ) I come for 2 hours (with a break or 90 minutes without) and organise all the entertainment for you so you can concentrate on the birthday tea and enjoying yourself. I set up approximately 30 minutes beforehand and greet the children with music, jokes, bubbles and magic all presented in a lively comic fashion so they get used to me. The birthday child is the star of the show! I break for tea after about 50 minutes. After tea I carry on making sure the children have a happy time and their wishes come first. The children love Cheeky Monkey or Sorchio the Dragon and singing on the microphone while I play guitar.
2) Disco plus party: (Ideal for older children and mixed events) Similar to the big birthday party. A professional disco set up with all the hits and disco lights. Depending on the ages of the children and their wishes I can include games and magic show.
3) 45 minute show: Magic, songs and puppets presented in a fun filled fashion, laughter and joining in. All the ingredients of an exciting and memorable party.
4) Walk a bout/ mix and mingle - ideal for exhibitions, parties, corporate events....etc..
I get booked up quickly and it is best to book me before you decide on the venue or other details. I try to arrange my parties 11 am to 1 pm or 3 pm to 5 pm but will fit in with your plans whenever possible.
A recent Quote: " I am a professional face painter so get to observe lots of children's entertainers in the course of my work and I have to say there are not many that I would happily recommend but Potty Patrick is exceptional! I love how Potty Patrick interacts with the children (without being loud and "in your face") - a genuinely talented and worthy children's entertainer. I just hope to have him for my own daughter's party one day! Angela Blackmore ("Face Painting by Angela Blackmore")

Great entertainment from Potty Patrick. He performed magic tricks, did balloon animals. All the children loved it and the parents have since commented to me on how great he was.

Potty Patrick was fantastic! He really entertained the kids and parents (who were going to go off and leave us to it for a couple hours ended up finding a seat and enjoying the show as well). Many excellent compliments from parents and 4-5 year old guests. Patrick really made our 5 year old daughter, who can be extremely shy in such situations, very happy and comfortable being the star of the show. That takes talent! My only suggestion is with regards to arrival time. It was disconcerting that he didn't arrive until 20 minutes before start time. My husband and I were getting very nervous and starting to wonder if we should brush up on our party tricks, so a reassuring text, call or email the morning of or an hour before would go miles to make it a perfect experience if he's not going to be there at least 30 minutes prior to start. Otherwise perfect, thank you!
