When you’re planning a birthday party and choosing a children’s entertainer there’s lots of questions to be asked! I’ve tried to answer some of the most common ones below.
If you still have any questions, or you need to see if I’m available on a specific date, please just give me a call on 07708 763 654 or fill out a booking form.
What areas do you cover?
I cover Bristol, Portishead, Bath, Thornbury and everywhere in between! Check my Contact Me page to see my free travel zone. Outside of the zone I charge 40p per mile for travel. If you are further afield and want a Marky Jay party – don’t despair! Give me a ring and I’ll try my best to get to you.
What age range are your children’s parties suitable for?
4 to 7 years old mainly (but the show is very much a family show). I adjust my show for under 4s and over 8s.
Can you perform at our house?
I can do a show in any venue, front room, pub, church hall or garden. I enjoy the challenge!
How do I book & pay for a party?
1] Choose a party package and confirm with me the time and date is available.
2] Fill in my booking form on this website. I’ll send you a confirmation email
3] You’re done, your party is booked! I don’t take a deposit. I can send you an invoice in advance if needed.
4] The balance is paid on the day in cash/cheque or in advance by BACS. I can’t take payment by debit/credit card.
Do you offer party bags?
I currently do not sell party bags.
Do you have party invitations?
Yes. I provide special Marky Jay party invitations which you can download from my website here.
Do you come with my own music and stereo?
Absolutely. All you need to do is ensure we have a plug socket for the equipment. I’m also happy for people to bring their own music and plug into my PA. A personal playlist of their favourite songs is always a winner!
Are you registered with CRB and are you insured?
Yes and Yes (happy to email you a copy).
How much does a party cost?
You can find the cost of my three most popular parties on my package and prices page.
My prices vary depending on your requirements and travel costs. The best thing to do is give me a quick call on 07708 763 654 for a no pressure chat.
Do you do Disco parties or can you adapt your show to a theme?
I’m afraid not – The Marky Jay Monkey Magic Party is a solid-gold winner.
Is there anything you need on the day?
A small table, access to a plug socket, a glass of water (and maybe a slice of cake!) and I’m good to go. I also appreciate a parking space as close as possible as some of my boxes are rather heavy.
