Getting away

Posted by Danny Nutt on February 21, 2019 at 12:50 AM

When you’re running a busy children’s party company, life can be hectic. Dealing with enquiries, sending job details to the team of entertainers, keeping up on social media, chasing deposits from clients, the list goes on…

And when you live in London AND have kids, well, that just adds a whole new level of craziness to the mix!

So sometimes, like now during half term, you just have to getaway from it all. Whether it’s down the M23 to Brighton (which is what I’m doing with my

As long as there is some open space, fresh air (sea air ideally), less traffic and a slowing of pace, then you can really relax.

It’s a time to unwind, reflect, breathe and take it easy.

So if you’re not yet planning on getting away, do try and do it. Even if it’s a day trip to the countryside. Trust me, it will be well worth it.

Top 5 things to do in London this half term

Posted by Danny Nutt on February 13, 2019 at 6:50 AM

Can you believe it's nearly half term again? For some of you, you're already there. It only felt like yesterday we were just getting over the festive period...

Have you made any plans with your children?

As parents, whether you're a mum or dad, life is always busy. Dealing with the kids' activities, after school clubs, their own birthday parties, booking a children's entertainer, work, paying the bills, food shopping, the list goes on.

But fear not, I've researched some great ideas for you and the famliy, that won't cost over the odds... 

1) Peppa Pig's First Concert at the Southbank Centre from 15th-17th February. Everyone’s favourite Pig family leads a fun, interactive introduction to live orchestra for the whole family, from 18 months upwards. For more info visit- https://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whats-on/133366-peppa-pig-my-first-concert-2019

2) Lego Movie 2. This promises to be lots of fun. Just like the first offering, expect whacky animation, super funny dialogue and a moody Batman. On general realease in cinemas now.

3) Spring Rainbows – Unicorn Theatre, FREE entry (Ages 5+) 147 Tooley St, Southwark SE1 2HZ / 020 7645 0560/ www.unicorntheatre.com Nearest tube: London Bridge, Saturday 16th February, noon-2pm.  Take part in this drop-in craft activity and help create your own crazy rainbow to mesmerise your pals.

4) Go to one of the many free museums in London. For more info visit- https://www.visitlondon.com/things-to-do/sightseeing/london-attraction/museum/free-museums-in-london

5) Make something. Grab some card, glue, glitter, paint, newspaper (for spillages) and let your creative juices flow! Make a birthday card, do a painting of something at home (your fruit bowl maybe?) and put it somwhere that all your vistitors will see and admire your fabulous piece of art.

We do hope you like my suggestions and have a wonderful break with your families. 

Oh no, I forgot to book an entertainer for my child's party!

Posted by Danny Nutt on February 7, 2019 at 12:10 AM

Well you didn't, but it's just that the party is this weekend!

You've done the invites, had the RSVP's, booked the venue, got the food sorted, made the cake (or paid someone to make it for you) but you forgot to organise what the kids party activities will actually be. Arggghhhh!!

Don't worry, you're not the only one. You've been busy, you probably live in London (busy city), the kids have been demanding and this one important party factor slipped the net. Somehow.

But fear not, we've dealt with this many times before. Sometimes it's a few days before the actual party, sometimes it's the day before! My cool, calm head (I hope!) will guide you through the options and set your mind at rest.

Booking a children's entertainer is by far the best option of keeping the kids engaged. How many times have you tried to keep 30 x 5 year olds amused, engaged and entertained for 2 hours?

Not many I imagine.

So don't worry if you're reading this and it's reminding you need an entertainer, fast. Subject to availabilty (we have a huge team) we can fix everything for your child's special birthday celebrations in no time.

And before you know it, once you've put up all the decorations and sorted out the food, once the party gets going, you'll have a drink in your hand and a smile on your face knowing everythiing is sorted.

Phew. And relax...

We love to boogie

Posted by Danny Nutt on January 29, 2019 at 10:55 AM

We do! Do you? 

How can you resist the lure of the dancefloor, the disco lights, the communal atmosphere of other sweaty dancers, the DJ and a few drinks inside you?

Well it appears, if our disco parties are anything to go by, that it's not just us adults who like to shake it up on the dancefloor, but kids do too.

Watching those mini ravers getting in to our many games and competitions during our parties is a sight to behold. They love having one our DJ's giving intructions on the mic and playing the role of the fun and silly children's entertainer.

And with some banging tunes and a bit of sugar inside them, what more does a child need to have fun at a children's party?


Parties are never quite what you expect...

Posted by Danny Nutt on January 24, 2019 at 5:45 AM

Sometimes we go in to kids parties feeling great. We've prepped up, feel energised, the venue looks good, the kids seem happy and then we get going.

Then, after a while, some of the kids are finding it hard to concentrate, someone falls over and bursts in to tears- and it ends up being tricky. To say the least.

Conversely, we go in to a children's party with a feeling of dread. The venue is small, there are balloons strewn all over the floor, the kids are high on sugar and we have to put lots more energy in to it to really grab their attention.

Then suddenly, bam! The kids are well behaved, the parents are sitting quietly on the sidelines and it goes brilliantly,

Ultimately, like life, with the parties we run, anything could happen. And we have to be prepared for that.

But one thing remains the same for all the children's parties we run as children's entertainers in London, Tyne & Wear and across the South East of London: we want to give the kids a memorbale and amazing time. It's just sometimes, it can be harder than you think...

New year, new goals?

Posted by Danny Nutt on January 16, 2019 at 9:25 AM

Happy New Year! (Are we still allowed to say that? I say, yes!)

It's been a while since our last post, but thought a new year would be a good excuse to write one. 

Isn't it still strange getting used to reality? It now of course seems like ages ago when a lot of us spent endless days eating and drinking and watching films...

And then sudddenly, bam! Work, kids back to school, early nights, the humdrum of the routine. Well that's certainly true for me here at Nutty's Towers. Dealing with emails, party enquiries, sending details to my team of party entertainers, actually running parties, writing posts on social media, chasing payments, promoting the business, the list goes on.

But we are well in the groove of it now and are ready, willing and able to take your children's party enquiry and offer you one of our fabulous children's entertainers for your child's birtthday party in London and beyond!

And our gaols for the year ahead? More of what we're good it I guess, more blog posts and not being busy beating ourselves up if we don't achieve our goals. Give it your best shot I say and if you don't fully succeed, well at least you tried.

Positivity, that's the main thing...
