Nutty’s Children’s Parties are an award-winning group of highly experienced children’s entertainers offering fun-packed, exciting and original parties for children aged three to 13 across London and the south-east. Nutty’s pride themselves on their unique style of engaging with children and feeding their imaginations through games, storytelling, treasure hunts, random props (smelly sock anyone?) silliness and above all, fun. Their trademark Adventure Parties include: Pirate Dan’s Treasure Hunt, Super Dan, Wizard Dee, the Princess Adventure, Ninja Danka and many more. They also offer Discos, Drama Workshop Parties, Creative Arts and Crafts Parties, Classic Party Games, Magic Shows and more, but if your birthday child has their heart set on something specific, then don’t worry, as this bunch of professional actors can cater to most themes. Nutty’s have even performed at Camp Bestival and Cloud Nine Glamping and run regular holiday clubs near their base in West Norwood.

Cost: Parties start from £200 for up to 30 children but to see the full range, please visit www.nuttyschildrensparties.co.uk/prices.htm

Celebrate in the air at Flying Fantastic’s aerial circus parties. Their thrilling 90-minute sessions provide a combination of silks and trapeze for children aged seven and up to climb, swing and hang upside down. The children work in small groups with an experienced teacher and learn a variety of skills and tricks on each apparatus. The session begins with games to warm up and get the kids moving, ensuring they’re all ready to take to the air. Fun activities ensure laughter and giggles from the word go. Once they’re all warmed-up, they start the kids on the equipment where they work through a variety of moves and tricks for an hour. To top it all off, there is a photo opportunity at the end where the birthday star chooses their favourite piece of equipment, and all their friends strike a pose around them before they finish with a short cool down. For big and small thrill-seekers, Flying Fantastic welcome all abilities as the aerial classes are made to be as accessible as possible, so that everyone can get involved – whatever their fitness or flight experience!

Cost: A 90-minute session costs £300 (for up to 12 people). For larger groups, contact Flying Fantastic and they will do what they can to accommodate you.

Added extras: The default is Silks and Trapeze as they work for a range of fitness levels and ability. Hoop and Slings are fun too though, so please add a note in your booking form if you’d prefer either of those!
