Jamie Jigsaw’s FAQ’s.
Jamie Jigsaw is the birthday party and children’s entertainment expert, he has taken the time to answer the most Frequently Asked Questions from parents and bookers. If your question is not covered here, please do get in touch.
How early should I book youIf you have a specific date in mind, as early as you can. I receive bookings for peak periods as far as a year in advance.
Usually for weekend bookings 6 - 8 weeks in advance is enough.
It’s a last minute booking? Give me a call, it’s always worth asking and if I’m not available I’d be happy to try and help find someone who is.
What comes first the venue or the entertainerAlways book your entertainer first, if you haven’t you may find that your chosen entertainer is already busy. There are more venues in your area than there are great entertainers.
How much space do you requireI can adapt to the space I am given. I can fill a theatre or village hall, but also perform in a living room at home.
What age ranges can you entertainMy birthday party packages are tailored for 3yrs+ The entertainment I provide is suitable for all ages, with silliness for the younger audience, impressive juggling and magic for the slightly older audience and even jokes for the grown ups. Please note whilst I do entertain the grown ups too, the priority is always the children and no inappropriate humour is used.
How much do you costFor a free no obligation quote please send me an email or give me a call.
What areas do you coverI can travel to wherever you are. Whilst I live in Poole, Dorset and regularly perform locally in Bournemouth, Parkstone, Broadstone, Wareham, Lilliput, Wimborne, Swanage, Weymouth and Southampton.
I have also performed slightly further afield including Sandhurst, London, Basingstoke, Newbury, Oxford and Guernsey.
Can you perform outsideI can perform outside, however, you must have a wet weather plan.
If the weather is wet or too windy, it will be unsafe for me to perform.
Also, for birthday parties, if it is too sunny it may not be safe for the children to be outside, therefore please think about either suitable shade (gazebo) or moving the party indoors.
How can I pay Exact details will be given at the time of booking, but you can pay by cash, cheque, BACS (internet transfer) or credit/debit card.
Do you experience entertaining children with special needsI have lots of experience working with and entertaining children with special needs. I have worked for Victoria Education Centre and Julia’s House on many occasions. If you have any questions please do give me a call.
Can you provide the food or party bags I can provide the party bags and whilst I cannot provide the food, I know of companies who can. Whether you’re looking for lunch boxes or a hog roast I have plenty of suggestions.
Is there any limit on the amount of childrenWhilst I’m happy to perform for any number of children, from my experience birthday parties work best with 15 - 35 children.
Is there anything I should do before you arriveIf the party is at home, clearing as much space as possible would be appreciated. I come to the party with everything I need, a table, a speaker that does not require a plug socket and changed ready to perform. I’ll also let you know at the time of booking what you can do to help guests find the venue.
Are you okay with pets
Whilst I love pets, please put them in another room for the party. They can distract the children from the entertainment and in all the excitement your pet may get scared too.
