Can My Child Have A Birthday Party During Covid?

Yes they can! Covid has been tough for so many and especially children but with government restrictions easing we are excited to say that your child can now safely party in person with their friends again!

We are currently offering and taking bookings for all of our live and virtual children’s parties – please see permitted attendance numbers below.

 

How Many People Can I Have At My Children’s Party?

With government restrictions easing at different intervals, please see the dates below to find out how many people you can safely have at your children’s live party (information taken from government roadmap document and out of school settings guidance):

      • Present Day to 18th July – 30 people outdoors (any combination of children and parents). For indoor children’s parties, the amount of children permitted is dependant on the party venue’s size and ventilation etc. Please speak to your local party venue for further details.
      • 19th July Onwards – All government social restrictions removed. This means you should be able to host any one of our kid’s parties indoors or outdoors up to the maximum numbers stated on our party pages. Please note, there are no restrictions on the numbers of adults attending.

Please note: you can have up to 99 children for all of our virtual parties.

 

If I Book An Outdoor Party, What Happens If It Rains?

Firstly, we will be keeping our fingers and toes crossed for you, as well as praying to the rain gods! If that does not work, we have the following options available if it is due to rain on the day of your outdoor party:

      • If you book a sports based party, our entertainers are happy to work in the rain unless it is too dangerous for the children (i.e. extreme weather conditions).
      • If you book a disco & games based party, we would need to be able to keep the disco dry in the event of any wet weather due to it being electrical equipment. You are welcome to supply a gazebo or marquee in this instance or you can hold your party indoors, subject to space and ventilation in-line with government guidance.
      • If you are looking to buy or hire a gazebo or marquee, we recommend a minimum size of 3m x 6m to ensure that you can fit both the disco (where applicable) and children underneath it. Ideally, you also want a gazebo or marquee with side coverings to prevent any rain coming in from the sides. Gazebos can be purchased from places such as Amazon, Ebay, Argos, B&Q, Homebase, Wayfair and The Range to name but a few!
      • You are welcome to move your party date and/or time to a new party date and/or time (subject to availability) to avoid any forecast of rain. We ideally would like as much notice as possible, but you are welcome to do this 24 – 48 hours before your party.
      • If you wanted to call your children’s party off due to any extreme weather, you can postpone your party up to 1 year away from your original party date, including changing it to a different party type or occasion. We apologise, we are unable to refund any deposit for cancellations due to adverse weather conditions.
      • You can switch your live party to any one of our interactive virtual parties (subject to availability) for up to 99 children!

 

What Happens If I Cannot Have My Party Because Of Government Restrictions?

If we are prevented from performing at your live party due to any unforeseen government restrictions such as a lockdown or if lockdown easing is delayed, we will offer you the following options:

      • To postpone your party up to 1 year away (free of charge)
      • To continue with your party based on existing restrictions (where appropriate)
      • A full refund of your booking deposit (minus a £25 administration fee)*
      • To switch to one of our interactive virtual kid’s parties

*Our administration charge covers the cost of processing and cancelling your party, as well as bank, credit/debit card and other associated fees. For our full cancellation policies, please see our Booking Terms & Conditions.

How Are You Keeping Children Safe At Your Live Parties?

The safety of the children at our kid’s parties has always been and will continue to be our highest priority. For complete peace of mind, we have the following safe partying measures in place for our live children’s parties:

      • Our entertainers frequently wash/sanitise their hands
      • All equipment and props are frequently cleaned, with more attention applied to touch points
      • Our entertainers adhere to government social distancing guidelines
      • Our children’s parties are COVID-19 risk assessed in line with government guidelines
      • Should our entertainer develop virus symptoms they will self-isolate and we will replace your entertainer for you (subject to availability)
