Hello! We're DNA Kids
Since 1991 our professional children’s entertainers, magicians, sports coaches and teenage party DJs have been providing exciting kids and teenage parties that are packed full of fun and laughter! Our aim is to offer a professional, stress-free and reliable party experience that mums and dads will love too!
The magic of DNA Kids parties started in the front room of Mrs Bewley’s house in Hullbridge, Essex by an enthusiastic 14 year old named Darren Bewley. After volunteering to play the music at his younger sisters birthday party on two twin cassette decks (hey, it was 1987), the seed was sown for what we was about to become.
Fast forward 4 years later to one summers day in August of ’91. Eager to help his financially challenged friend Alex, Darren hit upon the great idea that they both become DJs! With no capital, no business plan and more worryingly, no idea, the two new entrepreneurs set off on their new adventure! After much piggy bank raiding the boys invested £665 each into their first disco equipment set-up and DNA Kids was born.
All that was needed now was a really cool disco name. After considering many other names the boys settled on DNA Kids from putting the initial of their first names together. Alex also loved the idea that DNA is something that is unique to everyone and that our new company was going to be unique in the service it provided and the parties it offered. After all the excitement of launching the new business the fledgling partnership only managed to last 6 short weeks. Whilst Darren and Alex still remain good friends to this day, Darren purchased the other half of Alex’s disco equipment and set to work creating the 'Children’s Favourite Party Entertainers!'
DNA Kids Today
We’ve grown a bit since those early days. Darren has gained a few grey hairs but he is still just as passionate as he ever was. We have been busy expanding our coverage area too. From initially covering just the county of Essex, we now cover over 60 counties across the UK and are growing all the time. Our ambition is to become a leading national and international brand in high-quality children’s and teenage party entertainment.
Darren has now retired from entertaining and DJing but through our dedicated training program we now employ a large team of highly talented and genuinely lovely children’s entertainers, magicians, sports coaches and teenage party DJs based in the majority of the counties we cover. We have performed at tens of thousands of children’s and teenage parties with thousands more customers experiencing the difference of DNA Kids children's parties every year.
Our original goals still remain our core focus today. We love providing a unique kids party experience, which starts with the moment you contact our knowledgeable and helpful children’s party advisors. This carries through to our friendly and enthusiastic children’s entertainers that meet you with a warm smile on the day. We understand we are only ever as good as our last party, which is why your party will only ever be given the passion, professionalism and bundles of fun it rightly deserves!
