As I mentioned, I’ve performed at all sorts of children’s parties and family events in the Wolverhampton area. Here are just some of the events that stand out to me.

Wolverhampton Kids Entertainers

Recently, I performed at Nishkam Primary School on Great Bricklin Street in Wolverhampton for their family fun day and open day. Not all of the events that I perform at are birthday parties and it’s great to be hired for a mix of different occasions. On this day, I performed two magic shows so that we could make sure that everyone got the chance to enjoy the entertainment. Both went well and the photographer on the day captured these fantastic photos.

Family Entertainment Wolverhampton

Christenings are an excellent opportunity to hire a children’s entertainer, or should I say a family entertainer. These events are family celebrations and therefore I will always suggest that the entertainers you choose should reflect that. I am often hired for Christenings to provide a magic show for the children, followed by walkaround close up magic for the whole family. That was the case in May 2019, when I performed at Dunstall Hall Community Centre, Dunstall Avenue. It was a lovely venue for a Christening in Wolverhampton, and I enjoyed meeting and of course entertaining everyone.

Wolverhampton City Centre Company Party

During December 2018, I provided a children’s Christmas party for a company. It was held in the city centre, and as well as my magic show and balloon modelling, I played a lot of funky Christmas music, introduced Santa and his elves and helped to get everyone in a really Christmassy mood. It was great fun (for me and for everyone who attended!) After the event, the client sent me this lovely review.

Really Impressive, thanks! Your interaction with the children was great and they were all involved. It was clear to see that you are very talented. The party was very memorable. Thank you.

Birthday Party Entertainer

Not all of the birthday parties I provide are at hired venues. Some kids just feel more comfortable at home, and that’s totally fine. As a birthday party entertainer it’s my responsibility to be flexible enough to do that and while some kids entertainers don’t perform living room shows, as we call them, I’m always happy too. In 2017, I performed one such magic show at a 5th birthday party for a young boy. And there was another entertainer there too. A rather unusual one actually, and I’ve not done many events alongside this particular form of entertainment. I’m not even sure what to call them, but I would say an Animal Man. The entertainer had bought along with them live lizards, snakes, rodents and even a tarantula and the children loved getting their hands on those, as well as, of course, seeing my magic show. In fact, you might say the whole party was a roaring success.

diwali entertainment wolverhamptonDiwali Entertainment Wolverhampton

I provide my magic at a whole range of events and in October 2015, I provided Diwali entertainment for a large event in Wolverhampton. This event was at a school in the Wednesfield area of Wolverhampton, and I performed a modified version of my magic show so that I could make sure that I entertained everyone. That meant a few larger routines as there were lots of guests attending as well as magic that would appeal to older children and the adults too. I have also previously provided walkaround close up magic as Diwali entertainment. What I recommend depends on your specific needs so if you’re holding a Diwali event and are looking for entertainment get in touch with me here and let’s talk about how I can help.

School Magic Show Wolverhampton

When I perform at schools it is usually for an end of term celebration assembly. This is often at the end of the school year in July, or at Christmas. However, in August 2014, I performed my show at Woodfield Infant School in Wolverhampton, as part of their programme of summer school activities. There was a mix of ages there on the day but I love it when that is the case as it creates an ‘electric’ audience. Everyone was keen to see what I had to share with them and the show really came alive. As I always say we found the show together! It was a memorable one, that’s for sure!

Repeat Booking for Kids Parties

Some people measure their success on how many shows they perform in a year, or how much money they make. For me, the measure of success is how often people are recommended me to their friends, or as is the case with one parent from Wolverhampton booking multiple events. In 2014, I performed my first show for a parent in the Tettanhall area of Wolverhmapton. It was his daughter’s 6th birthday. Two years later when his other daughter turned 5, he called me up and booked me again. Both times he left me a review, and I know for a fact that he then recommended me to someone else who also booked. Thank you, Nii. It was a pleasure entertaining your family and bringing a little magic to your daughter’s birthdays.

I hired Ed to perform at my daughter's birthday and he was brilliant. There was something for everyone, and all the kids loved his show! I will definitely recommend him to those who are looking for an entertainer for their event.

This is the second time we have had Ed provide entertainment at a party which speaks volumes of how happy we were with the service he provides. Ed keeps everyone involved with a brilliant mix of fun activities, magic, balloon modelling and comedy. Everyone had a great time (even the parents) and we will recommend him to all our friends.

Nursery Kids Entertainer

As well as magic for schools, I’m often asked to provide magic for nurseries and in November 2013, I provided an early Christmas magic show as a treat for children at Bizy Bodies Nursery in Wolvehampton. I performed a slightly reduced gentler version of my main magic show and I’m glad to say that it was a huge success with the kids and the play leaders.

 

Kids Magic Workshop Party

As well as magic shows, I can also provide a magic workshop party. This is especially popular with children who are a little older and feel that the kids entertainment and kids party entertainers might be a little too babyish for them. My magic workshop is based on my make and do online magic workshop and essentially what it involves is a short magic show followed by the chance to take a sneak peek behind the magician’s curtain and learn some magic of your own. All of the props are included and every child gets the chance to try performing the tricks, with some performing in front of their friends if they want to. This is what I provided for a 10th birthday party in June 2013, at a church hall in Wolvehampton, and here’s the feedback I received after the party.

 

Amazing! The kids loved his banter and he handled heckling from one 10 year old fabulously and took it all in the right spirit. A super show, funny and a great magic workshop which the children loved. Entertaining from start to finish.

Wolverhampton Children’s Parties

This one is a funny story. In April 2013, I was hired by two sets of parents to perform my full kids party package a joint 6th and 7th birthday party at the Scout Hut used by the 1st Tettenhall Wood Scout Group. It is in the Penn region of Wolverhampton on Bridgnorth Road. I was halfway through my lively action-packed music party games when boom, the lights went out, the music stopped and all of the children sat down. We were playing musical bumps at the time! The funny thing was it wasn’t part of the game. In fact, the electricity for the hut ran on a meter and it had run out of juice. Yep, chuck another few quid in the meter was very apt here. Fortunately, it was resolved without resorting to a whip around of all the parents and the party continued with the second half of the party games, my magic show and finally balloon modelling. All in a day’s work, I guess.

I provide children’s entertainment and kids party services right across the Wolverhampton area and in March 2013, I provided my full party package - that’s lively jump about and make some noise action party games, an incredible never before seen eye popping magic show, and colourful popular balloon models - at Coven Memorial Hall, Brewood Road. What was even better about this show was that the party was magic themed. The birthday girl was dressed as a magician, the cake was magic themed and many of the children were dressed as wizards or fairies and had bought along homemade magic wands.

Ed performed a magic show and made balloon models for my daughter's birthday party. The kids were mesmerized and if the laughter and cheers from the kids (and adults!) in attendance is any measure, then he did a fantastic job.

Wolverhampton Christening Entertainment

Christenings and First Birthdays are popular family celebrations and so it makes sense to a family entertainer. That’s what I do. I can provide a magic show for the children, walkaround close up family magic for all, and I can even add in balloon modelling which is a great way to keep the party going, even after I have left. I was previously hired to provide this entertainment for two events in November 2012 and February 2013. Both events were at Albert Lawn Tennis Club, Aldersley Road and as I got to know the staff there, and they caught part of my magic show performance they recommended me to the second client and others since. I don’t know about you, but I think that proves I must be doing something right, right?

Halloween Party Entertainment

Halloween is a fun time. It’s spooky, mysterious, and of course magical. That’s why each October I get booked for a variety of children’s events across Wolverhampton and the Midlands. In 2012 I was booked for two events at Wombourne Library, Church Road, Wolverhampton and I provided a mix of spooky magic tricks and magical storytelling. If this is something you think your venue would be interested in exploring (and you’re sure you won’t be too scared) then get in touch and let’s have a quick chat about how I can help.

The Best Kids Party Ever?

7th birthday party. Christ Church Jubilee Rooms, Coniston House, 9 Church Road, Tettanhall. 28th October 2012.

I might sometimes forget the actual date, but I’ll never forget what happened. As a professional kids entertainer and magician, I attend a lot of events! No, seriously, I travel across our region and I go to a lot of birthday parties and other events, but I’ll always remember this one. People sometimes ask me what my best show was, and this is always in the top ten. I can’t put my finger on it, except to say that the stars aligned. The children were excited about the show, they got every joke, I was in that perfect state of flow and everything just worked.

Just wanted to thank you again for the excellent show you did yesterday for Jessica's party. It was brilliant and the children thought you were great. They loved you. I've had a lot of text messages from the children's mums saying how much they enjoyed your show.

Rainbows Magic Show, Wolverhampton

Events for Rainbows and Scouts come along every so often and they are always enjoyable, as it’s something very different for the young people attending their regular meeting. Very often I’m a surprise for that day and that’s great fun. This event took place at the church hall in Perton, for Perton Rainbows in May 2012. At this event, I provided just my magic show, but for other events for similar groups, I have also provided a magic workshop. It’s based on my make and do magic workshop and can be used to work towards one of the badges that are always popular. If you're involved with Scouts, Rainbows or another similar youth group, then let’s talk about how I can help you with an engaging and fun activity at one of your future meetings.

Ed, you were brilliant. The rainbows loved it! I can’t thank you enough, but thank you!

Wolverhampton Kids Party at Home

In 2011, I performed a small magic show for a 5th birthday party at a client’s home close to Wolverhampton. As you might imagine most of my birthday party bookings take place at a party venue, such as a community centre, church or village hall. In fact, I create a list of some of the great party venues in Wolverhampton. However, that’s not what this post is about. For this event, there were only 15 children attending and the birthday child decided that they would like the party at home. Some children’s entertainers in Wolverhampton don’t perform at house parties, but I understand that every child is different and feels comfortable with different things, and so I was happy to shrink my show down to fit in with them. It was a great afternoon and the client left me this review a few days later.

Thank you for an amazing party at our home last weekend! My daughter loved it, as did all of her friends. I will recommend you!
