Searching for the perfect children's party entertainer? Look no further, Alive Network are host to some of the funniest, most interesting, imaginative and talented children's party entertainers in the UK.

Entertaining children at a party is hard work, especially if you've got a range of ages attending, they all want to play, and you’re trying to set up the food! So, why not let a professional children's party entertainers delight, entertain and enthrall your children and their friends, while you relax and wonder how 20 kids could possibly eat all that food in one sitting. (Don’t worry, they will!)

Despite knowing how to work an XBox from birth and being more tech savvy than Bill Gates, kids actually really enjoy traditional style entertainment that engages, amuses and surprises. A professional kids’ party entertainer understands the need to provide party entertainment that keeps children involved for every second, never letting their attention wander, or their enthusiasm lapse.

All Alive Network children’s party entertainers are professionals from either performance or childcare backgrounds, who are CRB checked and have full insurance. They are highly experienced and are able to provide quality entertainment for all types of parties and children, so you can sit back and enjoy the fun and games.

Here's our top 10 entertainment ideas for children's parties that will please the kids and impress their parents too:

  1. Blow Up A Storm With Balloon Modelers

    Balloon modelling is fascinating to watch, as long thin balloons are inflated then twisted at lightening speeds into anything from a monkey to a jetpack! The great benefit of hiring Balloon Modellers for any kid’s party is that every child gets something to take home, be it a hat, custom-made balloon jewellery, a backpack or a favourite cartoon character. Alive Network artist Miss Balloonist creates giant wearable masks that turn kids into pirates, witches, monkeys, dogs and even clawed monsters. She can even make caricatures of their parents in balloons, which always goes down well with the kids!

  2. Face Painting For Children’s Parties

    Transform your little VIPs into wild animals, butterflies, superheroes with the skill and artistry of expert Face Painters. Professional face painters will only use safe, water-based and hypoallergenic materials, so kids can wear their new look all party long and parents can restore them to angelic normality before bedtime!

  3. Memorable Mime Artists

    If your kids like Mr Bean, they'll love live mime. Children just can't take their eyes off a mime artist, fascinated as they conjure a world from thin air and pure imagination. Our Mime Artists Inc offer traditional style mime and also a silent clown act, for a wonderful show full of slapstick and comedy.

  4. Meet The Animals In A Mobile Petting Zoo

    With a Mobile Petting Zoo, adults and children can get close up to some of nature's most fascinating exotic animals, ranging from cuddly meerkats and skunks to magnificent lizards, snakes and even giant hairy spiders!

The mobile zoo experience includes holding touching or feeding the animals and you can take lot of photos. Extra children, animals, party games, crafts, party bags and certificates can be added on request.

  5. The Best Prima Ballerina Parties Barre None!

    Take your child's passion for ballet to a whole new level with a ballerina party they'll be raving about for months.

  6. Marvellous Magic With Close-Up Magicians

    Magic is really popular for kids, thanks to the new wave of TV street magicians, so a close-up magic show is perfect for a birthday party.

  7. Crazy Comedy Jugglers

    A Comedy Juggler is fabulous entertainment for a children's party, combining amazing skill with a healthy dose of humour. And it's not just juggling balls and clubs either - Alive Network's own comedy juggler Jon has been known to juggle 7 objects, 9 cigar boxes, a bowling ball, a small child and a chainsaw (one of these objects may be a red herring!).
