Bertie and Boo

Postby ordinarygirl09 » Sun Jan 27, 2013 9:15 pm

I wondered if anyone had hired Bertie and Boo recently for a party?

I have booked them for my daughter's party at a hall we have hired but have just found out it is not the Bertie and Boo my daughter knows but different people that the company hire out for parties.

Anyone have any experience of them and if they are any good? Not keen if I don't have a recommendation.

Many Thanks.

I think they have 5 different Berties and 5 Boos, so it's going to be difficult for anyone to say unless you know which ones you're having. We recently had a party at Adventure Island which was hosted by the Bertie who always seems to be there. He was great but I'm sure they all are. They've built up a reputation over years and years so I doubt they would send anyone rubbish.

We didn't hire them but a friend and I had a joint birthday party at Adventure Island a couple of weeks ago for our kids' 3rd birthday. We chose the 'ordinary' package, ie not the magic show as they said it might be a bit much for their age. We thought they did a fantastic job and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. 'Captain Bertie' was very good. As the previous poster said, they're not going to hire anyone rubbish as their reputation depends on quality entertainers. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Hope your daughter has a lovely birthday party.

I've booked them twice and had different people but they were all fantastic! I'm even considering booking them again. Don't worry you won't be disappointed!

Bertie and Boo are expanding!
The owners of Bertie and Boo are currently looking at large commercial properties for a new themed soft play in Streatham and Clapham Junction - they have just ruled Dulwhich out!
Will keep you posted!

Streatham is in need of more child friendly places. Would really welcome a Bertie & Boo soft play in the area.

Previous mothers worry re: lots of Bertie and Boos and which ones she's going to get for her party... response...Don't worry..we never 'hire in performers' at Bertie and Boo..we are a little theatre company who have been performing magical parties for over 10 years and rehearse all together every Monday and Thursday evening with tea and chocolate brownies. All our performers adhere to a strict sliding appraisal system which Bertie and Boo set and all of us have been with us the company for ages..performing up to 6 shows a week..(this week we have 24 shows going out!) All our Boos have to be under 5ft 4, have blonde hair and be petite in build..in keeping with the brand..which is hilarious on Saturday mornings when they are all lined up ready for parties in the same costume! I hope that eases your mind..you won't be disappointed. I for one..am very talented! :>

The place is a dump! Great if it's raining , you happen to be passing by or a friend suggests it as you want to catch up. It's filthy though. They vaguely wipe the tables but the play area is grubby. The food is overpriced £2.50 for a distgusting cup cake and over £300 for a party there. Hello!!???

I love Bertie and Boo. We had a very popular party there for my 5 year old and as a result other parents in my son's year have decided to do the same. I choose to travel from Streatham to the one in Balham, and will be delighted if they open one here in SW16. Very surprised to hear there's someone who doesn't like it!

Think Bertie and Boo will sign off for now..thought it might be quite fun to chat and discuss whats going on and get excited with some like minded mums about what we could create together...forgot there can be some spikey comments out there.. We will endeavour to to make Bertie and Boo Adventure island a magical place to visit. Thank you to every one else and hope to see you for some play time soon.Bx
