Kate Turnbull (repeat client), Blackheath, London SE3
Hi Danny, Pirate Dan (played by James Camp) was absolutely wonderful. He was a huge hit with the children. I was especially impressed and grateful at how well he engaged all the children when some were extremely shy at the beginning. He was very well prepared and the content was fantastic. The children were truly entertained from start to finish. I would definitely book Nutty’s again and have highly recommended to all parent friends!’

We hope he didn’t expire at the end of the day!’
Natalie Sherborn, Camberwell, London SE5

Anne Garner, Dulwich, London SE21
‘Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was absolutely brilliant yesterday. It wasn’t an easy situation, his second party of the day and in that heat! But he didn’t let it show at all. He miraculously kept the children entertained for the full 2 hours, despite them all melting in the heat! So many of the parents told me how impressed they were with him and thought he did a fabulous job. So I’m sure you’ll get some more bookings coming your way. This morning my boys were asking when they can see Super Dan again. So I’m very happy. Thank you and please pass on our thanks to Jack again.’
Hannah Graveney, Dulwich, London SE21
‘Hi Danny, we had a great time with James (Camp) yesterday! The children loved him and he managed to engage the 4 year olds as well as the 6 year olds (I’d said to him on the phone that I thought this would be difficult and that he shouldn’t worry if the 4 year olds sloped off, but he was confident he’d manage and manage he did!) He brings a great combination of fun and adventure to the story and the children were totally wrapped in it:-) Eva has announced that she wants James to be at all her parties! Thanks again!’

‘Hello Danny, I just wanted to say that the kids had a blast at the party yesterday and my daughter Marion was over the moon! Sam (O’Hanlon) as Explorer Dan was amazing (never doubted it) and managed to keep the kids truly engaged from beginning to end. He also put in some mentions of Singapore in his script- as we are moving there- and the magic treasure the kids had to find was smartly called the Singapore stone! Got some compliments from the parents that he was/is awesome! The party was a success on all accounts - thank you for helping to make it happen! Have a good week ahead and all the best!’
Chiara Hugo (repeat client), Westminster, London SW1

Neena loved him.'

‘Hi Danny, just a quick note to say thank you to Max (Warrick) for the wonderful time last Sunday. Masha and her friends really enjoyed it, and I had parents telling me how excellent Max is at keeping the kids focussed and occupied! My brother-in-law, who ‘witnessed’ the whole treasure hunt, was very impressed with Max. I also appreciated Max's working around us and things happening at the party, such as the 'bringing out of the cake', so things went very smoothly. I have seen Max at another party a year or so ago, where he was also excellent. We would be very grateful if you could please pass our feedback to Max also. I'm sure we'll see him next year also .’
Julia Belcher (repeat client), Forest Hill, London SE23

Dan Tubbs (repeat client), Bayswater, London W2
‘Hi Danny , I wanted to say a big thank you for providing the entertainment for my son's birthday party a few weeks ago. Explorer Dan had the children totally captivated, with lots of laughter, excitement and running around - they all loved it, and so did the parents! It worked really well in the space at Lettsom Gardens, Max (Warrick) had done a few there before so I think that probably helped. Thanks again, and please pass on our thanks to Max!’
Helen Pickering, East Dulwich, London SE22
‘Hi Danny, THANK YOU for the (Disco) party on Saturday – everyone had a great time and we have received lots of positive feedback from the kids and parents. The music and entertainment were great! And very impressive to keep 30 kids engaged for that length of time! We have passed the flyers out to the church hall and the school, so I hope you will get some enquiries soon. Many thanks again, it was fab.’
Lucette Fogartey, Ealing, London W13
‘Hi Danny, I wanted to thank you for sending us the best entertainer that I and other parents have ever seen. Trev (Ellis-Jones) as Pirate Dan is an outstanding entertainer and made my son’s 5th birthday a huge success! Trev arrived very early to plan all carefully and made me laugh from the first greeting and I knew right away we were in good hands. He’s talented in telling stories and with his voice that carries he kept 30 kids entertained and captivated for two hours. Despite my son arriving 15 minutes late to the party and our piñata breaking after the second round, Trev calmly and brilliantly put on a superb show. Trev’s acting and improvisation skills, passion for his job and experience with kids got parents thinking that he missed his career as a real pirate :) Thanks to Trev, I have finally found the entertaining company for all the upcoming birthdays. Anyone can do games and play music and call it entertainment. But the unique story telling presented by your professional actor, Trev, puts your company in the lead and made the birthday party so special and memorable for anyone that attended. A Million thanks.’
Laila Belmaachi, Chelsea, London SW1

Caroline Brown, Dulwich, London SE21
‘Hi Danny, thanks so much - we thought Max (Warrick) was fantastic, well organised, engaging and a very convincing pirate!

Lydia Leach, Dulwich, London SE21

Lisa Jukes, Brockley, London SE4
‘Hi Danny, It was a great party thanks so much. I have already recommended you to some other parents. Your entertainment was spot on, I'll be stealing that blanket game! I was however gutted that I didn't get a prize despite all the serious shapes I was pulling. You have been forgiven, lol.’
Laura Howard, West Norwood, London SE27

Lina Udeh, Slough, Berkshire SL2
‘Hi Danny, it was very nice meeting you on Saturday. We were very pleased with the Disco party, you kept the kids very well entertained. We will certainly recommend you to all our friends. All the party invitations were downloaded from your website, so parents have your contact details. Thank you!
Yesid Rodriguez, West Norwood, London SE27
'Dear Danny, please thank Max (Warrick) for another brilliant party. Although we had smaller numbers this time they were all different ages, mostly girls but a few boys so tough to keep them all engaged, but he managed just that and they all had a blast. As did all the adults, it was very much an extended family party so other than my best mate (mother to the 2 year old, who’s older daughter Lara’s disco party you did recently) all the parents and grandparents were able to leave their kids in the party room and have a brilliant time in the kitchen catching up over food and wine. Everyone has been raving about the party today, and again thanks to Max there was hardly any mess as the children rarely left that room! Thanks again.'
Harriet Holme (repeat client) Balham, London SW12
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to confirm it all went very well yesterday - thanks to Jack (Vine) ! We were lucky with the weather to spend a good bit of time outside as well as in...and the kids had a great time. Many thanks for all the help.'

Lucy Smith (repeat client), Streatham, London SW16

Hope to see you again for another party! If not for Harris, Aryn or Callan then I would like a games party for my 40th :-) Ha ha. All adults commented on how amazing you were. So glad you were free!’

Thank you again for a really good experience.’
Laura Young (repeat client), Balham, London SW12
‘Hi Danny, Sam (O’Hanlon) was really excellent and such a lovely guy. 5* as usual. I have put a review on FB :-) Until next time! ‘
Caroline Kenny (repeat client), Herne Hill, London SE24
‘Dear Dan, Sam (O’Hanlon) was absolutely brilliant! His Dan the Explorer character really kept the children captivated for the whole time. The day before the party I spoke to Sam to make sure that we have the right theme, the one with the dinosaur egg, as Ollie is really fascinated by eggs and that’s why he chose that party theme. It was so kind of Sam to get a golden chocolate egg for Ollie, that made it really special for him! I had so much great feedback from all the parents, that the kids had lots and lots of fun and such a good time at the party. Everybody was really impressed with the quality of the entertainment. Thank you to everyone involved, especially Sam!’
Alrun Manchipp, (repeat client), Brockley, London SE4
‘Danny, we were very pleased with Sam (O’Hanlon). He kept a large group (around 20) entertained for a full hour with an interactive and creative programme. All with good humour and patience. Clear communication before and during too. Thanks!’
David Knott, Tulse Hill, London SW2
‘Danny, I'm emailing to say thank you to Sophie (Carmichael) for the amazing Pirate Party she put on for my daughter Matilda's 7th birthday yesterday. Sophie was really flexible about including a couple of different activities for the children when I spoke to her before the party. Sophie had nice a nice, friendly manner with the children as well as being fun and bold and 'piratey' and kept them entertained the whole time. Matilda had an amazing party - she loved all the games in the treasure hunt and the party games afterwards and her friends really enjoyed it too. Can't praise her enough! Thank you very much and best wishes.’
Louise Green, Chiswick, London W4
‘Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was fantastic - he kept the children rapt for the whole time. They loved him! Quite a few parents asked me how I found him (and flyers were taken) - so you may find you get some more bookings. Anyway please pass on our thanks to Max - he really was perfect.’
Amanda Bannister, Twickenham, TW1
‘Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was absolutely fantastic and all the children loved him. He was wonderful with Bertie and Arthur who immediately took to him and having him there made the whole thing so much easier than in previous years where my husband has been the entertainment! All the other parents were really impressed as well and I will definitely share your details with them. Thanks so much again!’

You entertained the children (and parents) perfectly and kept the momentum going throughout the whole party; I was exhausted watching you! Everyone I spoke to said how wonderful you were with the children. Thank you again for making a 5 year old very happy!’
Tamar Steinreich, Ealing, London W13
‘Dear Danny, we just wanted to pass our thanks on to Stan (Hodgson), who was absolutely brilliant as Danijel the Space Warrior. He made sure that all of the children were included and involved, and great fun was had by all. His communication and professionalism both in advance of the event and on the day was faultless. Thanks to yourself too for making the whole thing happen.’
Katharine Nelson, Newcastle Upon Tyne
'Hi Danny, can I just say that our superhero (Max Warrick) was actually a superhero. The way he controlled / entertained 20+ children was fantastic. Truly exceptional. I can't even entertain 2 children! Max requested all balloons etc were removed to allow him to do his job properly. He was not wrong! It made a real difference for all distractions to be removed in advance. Anyway, thank you again to Super Dan, he was fantastic. I could learn some lessons from him!'
Kim Gallagher, Streatham, London SW2
‘Hi Danny, We loved it!! Jack (Vine) was brilliant - and amazing with the kids. A couple of them cried when it was time to go! Surely a sign of success.’

Evva Mizerska, Muswell Hill, London N10
‘Dear Danny, I wanted to say how delighted we were with Max (Warrick). He was lovely and really engaged the children. Alexander thought he was brilliant, and a few parents have fed back to me how much their own children loved the party. There were also a few parents who hung around and they commented on how brilliant they thought Max was. Thank you very much to Max for providing so much fun for one small boy and his friends, and for making the whole party so painless for the adults. We will definitely recommend Max and Nutty’s to other parents!’
Elizabeth Arno, Beckenham, Kent BR3
‘Dear Danny, thanks – Sophie (Carmichael and her facepainting) did a really good job!’
Rick Lewis, organiser of Philosophy Now Festival, London
‘Hi Danny, James (Camp) did a very good job. He engaged very well with the kids from the beginning. It was a lovely birthday party thanks to his entertainment skills. Thank you!’
Patrice Rio, Blackheath, London SE3
‘Hi Danny, thank you so much for Saturday. The party was fantastic and that was thanks to you. I massively appreciate you changing your plans and coming back to do the party at such short notice (due to Jack being taken ill at the last minute). Super Dan has been the talk of Dexter's friends. Thanks again - real testament to you and your company that you went out of your way to make sure we still had entertainment. ‘
Krissy Knights, Richmond- Upon-Thames, Surrey TW9
‘Dear Danny, thanks. Max (Warrick) was fantastic. He engaged the kids really effectively and their enjoyment was very evident. The birthday boy had been a bit unsure about having a strange explorer there, but from the beginning Max put everyone at ease with lots of laughter. He had quite a small space and some background noise from parents chatting to contend with but managed excellently. We were really impressed with his acting and apparent enjoyment of the task of entertaining 25 x 5-6 year olds. Bravo!’
Lily Ford (repeat client), Camberwell, London SE5
‘Hi Danny, thank you, the day was a great success. Both of the ladies (Amy Leighton as Pirate Amy and Sophie Carmichael’s facepainting) were lovely, very friendly, great personalities. ‘

‘Hi Danny, thank you so much for doing the disco for us which was enjoyed by all.’

‘Hi Danny, we all had a wonderful time and Bea enjoyed her party enormously. Your entertainers (Amy Leighton and Jack Vine) were wonderful and the children loved them. They created a super atmosphere, got every child involved and skilfully kept the momentum up! They really know their stuff! The party games were fantastic and were very well received. So lovely to have a traditional children's party (Classic Party Games). Please do thank them both again from us. They were fantastic and made everything so easy whilst being charming, calm and great fun. In my job I know how much energy that takes and they did it effortlessly! Thank you to you also for being so organised and making everything very smoothly run.’
Alex and Carlos Fernandez, Bromley, Kent. BR2
‘HI Danny, Jack (Vine) was absolutely first class and did an amazing job and the children all had a great time. He kept them really engaged and kindly worked Ninjago into the normal routine (Super Dan) which thrilled my son. Jack was thoughtful about making sure he got there a bit early and calling ahead so we could occupy my child while we slipped Jack in so the surprise wouldn’t be ruined. All in all, we only have good feedback and the whole operation went well – thank you! We will happily recommend you to friends and family.’
Richard Gaidrner, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Dear Danny, we thought Max (Warrick) as Explorer Dan was great for Elspeth's 5th party last Saturday. She really loved the activities, as did all the other children, boys and girls alike. Lots of the other parents also commented on how well he engaged all the children, and made sure that latecomers were involved too. Thanks very much, and thank you to Max. By the way, we thought the name labels were a particularly good idea, and not something which we've seen other entertainers do. It meant Max could address the children directly and that really helped integrate the group as the children were from school, nursery and elsewhere, so some didn't know many others there. Many thanks!
Alexia Weeple, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, just a quick note to say another HUGE thank you to James (Camp) for entertaining the troops as "Racing Driver Dan" today. He went above and beyond to tailor his act to George's beloved road signs theme, and kept 28 four and five year olds enthralled for the whole two hours. George had an amazing time. It's been three years since he first entertained our eldest son as "Knight Daniel". I've been to a lot of kids' parties in that time and I've still not seen anyone who comes close to James and the Nutty's adventure format. Happy kids + chilled parents = a totally stress free birthday party!'
Sian Halkyard (repeat client), Tufnell Park, London N19
'Dear Danny, it was great, thank you so much! Our volunteer said that the children had a wonderful time and a good turn out of 15! You and James Camp (as Explorer Dan) were great and so professional to work with, hope to work with you again next year.'

Simon Rooke, West Dulwich, London SE21
'Danny, it's been a month now since Pirate Dan (played by James Camp) came to my son's 5th birthday party, and he and his friends still talk about it. Pirate Dan kept 16 small children totally engaged, sea monsters and all. They loved it. Even his 3 year old brother was captivated. Thanks very much!'
Anna Edwards, Herne Hill, London SE24
‘Danny, thank you so much for today, it was a marvellous success and you did brilliantly (with the Disco party). We really appreciate your efforts to make it a special day. Take care and good luck to you.’
Matt Rimmer, East Dulwich, London SE22
‘Hi Danny, Amy (Leighton) was brilliant - the parents were so enthralled they sat on the floor with the kids to listen!! The whole set up you have is so much nicer than the standard princess and Pom poms deal most entertainers are offering - don't be surprised if you get a bit of business around Wanstead off the back of Amy's performance! ‘
Laura French, Wanstead, London E11
‘Hi Danny, we had an absolute blast! Thank you! Michael (Meteer) was brilliant - he was professional, warm and fun and the kids had a wonderful time. We were really impressed. We're so grateful! Thanks again.’

Dana Peters, Finchley, London N3
‘Hi Danny, Pirate Sophie (Carmichael) was the talk of the town and all the children absolutely loved her. I'm sure you will get a few bookings from the attendees at the party... Priya has the best day and thank you too you and Sophie for making my little girl smile so much.’
Tina Menon, Croydon, London CRO
‘Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was fantastic thank you!! Lots of parents said how great he was and asked how I had found him (quote from the class Whats App group: "Explorer Dan is my new hero"!). We were all so impressed with how he kept the kids' attention, especially with only one or two props. Even the little two year old siblings were kept enthralled (very hard to do!) which made the party very easy for us! Thanks again and I have happily recommended you to all and sundry!’
Lauren Bernard, Balham, London SW12
‘Hi Danny, thank you for coming to our Spooky Disco. The children gave good feedback and really enjoyed the event. Thanks again!’
Elaine Walters, Brook House Primary School, Tottenham, London N17
‘Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was utterly brilliant. He had the kids totally wrapped up in the story and even though the parents were doing their best to be cool in the kitchen, plenty went through to follow what was going on with Jack and the rabble. It was a great laugh. Do thank him again, and thanks also to you, of course. Thanks again, Jack really made the party.’
Ian Sample, Herne Hill, London SE24
‘Hi Danny, the party was fab and Bob (Nicholson) and Caroline (Liversridge) did very well with the 90 children that came along! Thanks again.’
Chrissy Watt, Northumbria University, Newcastle Upon Tyne
‘Hi Danny, we were so pleased. It is the best entertainer we’ve had (James Camp). Our son loved it so much. The children were captivated by the whole story. He reached out to the whole group keeping them all engaged despite the age range 3 to 9. The youngest stayed until the end. The adults enjoyed it as well, not much talking amongst them and certainly not because they had nothing to say! James is a lovely and humble person. He kept it simple and was very welcoming to all children that came late who still got into the fun without any problems because of James’s kind and fun welcome…We will definitely call you again for future birthdays and recommend your company to other families. We are very grateful!’
Laurence Allain, Bromley, Kent BR2
'Hi Danny, the entertainment was excellent in all aspects. I unreservedly recommend you and Jack (Vine). My son, 5, opted for the space adventure. He and his friends were blown away with the uninterrupted engaging games. All present parents appreciated the quality of Jack’s program. I very much liked the idea of sticking children’s names on so Jack could engage individually, with each and everyone of them. This entertainment is educational, fun and burns a lot of calories. Thanks!’
Kaouther and Anwar St. Clair, Ealing, London W5
‘Dear Danny, please thank Sophie (Carmichael) again from us for a hugely successful party. Everyone raved about her. She kept 30 kids of various ages 2-6 totally captivated for the whole 2 hours, which meant the parents also had a brilliant time.
Having had Max (Warrick) for our elder daughter’s party 2 years ago I happily gave your details to friends as all your entertainers are outstanding.’

Caroline Ledger, Ashford, Surrey TW15
‘Hi Danny, the Disco party was great and so much appreciated. Within 30 minutes of you starting I had 3 parents say how good you were and I agree! I respect the fact you came early and sorted yourself out once you were there. My husband really appreciated the fact that you met all the kids and parents once they entered the hall, giving them a warm welcome. Much appreciated.

From the get go the children were enthralled and loved all the games and missions Danijel tasked them with. The birthday boy and his friends said 'best party ever!' and the parents were also very impressed with his Jedi powers, keeping 25 kids, some of whom had arrived late and were seamlessly integrated, engaged for the whole party. We booked with Nutty's after being invited to a friend’s birthday, and having had another great experience with a different entertainer and adventure we highly recommend Nutty's. Thanks again.’

Many thanks again!’

You were both amazing and the school was buzzing with what a great time the children had, and how fantastic you both had been to keep going AND tailor every year group's activities. Thank you.

Notably, I also had a lot of non-parents mentioning how brilliant you were as they rarely get to speak to their parent friends without interruption I guess. The music, the games, everything was perfect and you are such a pro! I will recommend you and your company to every parent I know in London and beyond. It was a brilliant afternoon and that was in large part down to you.’
Katharine Busby, Newcastle Upon Tyne and London
‘Hi Danny, we couldn’t have been happier with James (Camp). He built an instant rapport with Jasper whilst we were setting up, and managed to hold the concentration of 24 children for the duration of the party. All of the children, (boys and girls of varying interests), appeared to enjoy it equally. I thought it was particularly helpful when he ran through the party timings with me and also helped pull the attention of the children for things like the birthday cake and home time. My nine year old nephew loved the games, where usually he’d shy away from playing games with younger kids. We were also really happy that he was able to do this without a microphone or shouting – it makes an excellent case for having a proper trained actor who can project their voice, and the good behaviour of the children was reflective of this. Thanks again to you for all of your help in setting it up. I’d be more than happy to recommend Nutty’s and I know a fair few mums took cards away.’
Anna Chipperfield, Long Crendon, Bucks HP18
‘Hi Danny, Pirate Sophie (Carmichael) was great! We were very impressed with her and she kept the kids properly entertained for 2 hours as hoped! My daughter, whose party it was, gave her 10 out of 10 and my 9 year old son similar, so thumbs up all round. I will definitely spread the word and recommend Sophie where I can.
Thanks for your help and best wishes.’
Miranda Humphreys, Beckenham, Kent BR3
‘James (Camp) was fantastic, he had every child rapt and I spend most of the afternoon chatting to friends with a glass of Pimms....GENIUS!’
Tara Pilbrow, Shepherd’s Bush, London W12
‘As always, a fantastic party. Sophie (Carmichael) was excellent and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It always makes for an easy party as the kids are so well entertained and I just get to watch, take photos and chat to other parents. Thanks again.’
Amy Brocklehurst (repeat client), East Dulwich, London SE22
‘Hi Danny, Pirate Sophie (Carmichael) was a great hit on Saturday. She kept everyone engaged and entertained - including the solo boy who didn't seem to notice he was in a sea of girls (not part of the plan!). We thoroughly enjoyed having her as did all the kids. Thank you very much.’
Tanya Smith, West Norwood, London SE27
‘Hi Danny, thanks so much for Saturday it was totally brilliant. So many of the parents said how great you were – I really do think you’ll get some more enquiries. I had to go to another party on Sunday afternoon where Pirate Dan was a big topic of conversation and a Mum I don’t know, who wasn’t at our party, came to ask me for your details!! My sister texted on Tuesday to say George and Oliver had been playing Pirate Dan in their bedroom – clearly totally convinced you are indeed a real pirate!’
Kate Turnball, Blackheath, London SE3
‘Hi Danny, the Disco party with Trev (Ellis-Jones) yesterday was a huge success. I think the best so far! The kids had a brilliant time dancing and playing games. Perfect for 5 year olds (and mums and dads!). Thanks again!’
Leanne Forde (repeat client), Streatham, London SW16
‘Hi Danny, just wanted to say James
(Camp) was great. The kids loved him and had a lot of fun. Moreover, James did
all that in extreme heat and didn't let this affect his performance. Very pleased and will definitely
recommend to my friends.
Kasia Abendan, Primrose Hill, London
‘Just to let you know Danny - that Harry is
having an absolutely fabulous time (on Create A Show, July 2016). He came home
raving about his new love for drama, and how he wants to do it every day from
now on. He couldn't sleep last night as he was so excited about the morning and
he fell asleep clutching his song words. So you guys must be doing something
right :) Can't wait for the show.’
Kate Beer (repeat client), West Norwood, London
‘Tiago and Sienna had a brilliant
time with the Nutty's Create a Show! They absolutely loved it!’
Ruth Gregorio, West Norwood, London SE27
‘Hi Danny, we were delighted with
James (Camp)! He was a fantastic Explorer Dan. He was great with Noah and all
the kids were completely rapt throughout. They loved it, all the parents were
in awe of James' powers over the children, especially ones that don't usually
join in. A huge thank you for making Noah's day so special for him and
for giving him such fantastic memories, he's already busy planning his 5th
birthday party (Super Dan)!
Kind regards and please do thank James from us.’
Lizzie West, Reigate, Surrey RH2
‘Hi Danny, Amy (Leighton) was
fantastic. My daughter fell a bit in love with her and spent the remainder of
the weekend trying to copy her Bristolian accent. Really good. I hope it was
"a good one" from her perspective. Thanks again, and please send our
thanks (again) to Amy.’
Andrew Brady, East Dulwich, London SE22
‘Hi Danny, thanks so much to Sophie (Carmichael) for making our little Star Wars fan very happy. A great time was had by all.’
Catherine Erdly, Sydenham, London SE26
‘Hi Danny, I just wanted to say thank you to James (Camp) for today! The kids had a great time and James was unflappable in the heat.’
Natalie Moore, Nunhead, London SE15
‘Hi Danny, we were very pleased with Max (Warrick) on Saturday, he was brilliant! George loved it. It took the stress off us entertaining that amount of kids and they really engaged with him… We would definitely recommend Nutty's to other parents. Thank you!’
Tiffany and Graham, East Dulwich, London SE22
‘Hi Danny, I wanted to reply to say what a great party we had on Saturday. Max (Warrick) was fantastic as Super Dan. The children loved him, he arrived on time, phoned when he said he would and was punctual and friendly! And most of all Aaron loved his superheroes party and felt very special! So massive thanks to all of you at Nutty’s and Max for a great job done!
Mel Skinner, Penge, London SE20
‘We booked Nutty's Children's Parties for the second year running. Explorer Dan (played by James Camp) was a joy to watch; fun and engaging, he even managed to get the shiest children involved. He was an excellent addition to the day's entertainment making the day that more special for the children. We would not hesitate in recommending Nutty's Children's Parties and hope we can secure a third booking next year."
Marcela Ferriera, Committee Chair, Dulwich Village Pre School, London SE21
'Hi Danny, congratulations to you and your team on providing a fantastic service. From start to finish I have been very impressed with the level and promptness of your emails and contact, which is a great comfort to stressed out parents organising a party. Knowing that level of contact is there is a great relief. Thank you to James, who was fantastic as our resident Space Warrior. He kept 30 children entertained for two hours and I know they all had a fantastic time. My son Ethan thought he was very cool and loved every minute of the party. James really is a credit to your company and aside from being brilliant with the kids, he was keen to help set up tables etc. when he arrived, thanks so much. I shall certainly keep Nutty’s in mind for the future and would not hesitate to recommend you to friends. Many thanks.’
James Braizer, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1
‘Hi Danny, thank you so much. The boys had a fantastic time! The other kids really enjoyed themselves too… The feedback from parents has been very positive… It was a very successful party - the kids engaged really well with the theme and the space was great. All the children had a wonderful time, especially Sacha and Matti, who both went to school at 10am this morning because they were so exhausted from all the excitement over the weekend I couldn’t wake them up any earlier!! I’ve had an email from a family who wasn’t able to attend saying that ‘apparently their son missed a fantastic party’ so the general vibe going around is very much a thumbs up!’
Sophie Gerra, Wandsworth, London SW18
‘Dear Danny, Jack (Vine) was fantastic (as Danijel The Space Warrior). We were all thoroughly captivated that he had no props other than himself and yet held the children's attention for such a long period of time. He was wonderful and the children all had a fantastic time. I would not hesitate to recommend, or use again.’
Jenny Bourne, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'We were really pleased with the party- Jack (Vine) did an excellent job. He had a great rapport with the children and really kept them entertained. We couldn’t be more pleased and have had lots of nice comments from the children and their parents. I have recommended Nutty’s to my neighbour who is holding a party next month - she could hear how much fun was being had over the fence! Please pass our thanks and best wishes to Jack. Many thanks again.’
Georgina Seward, Herne Hill, London SE24
‘Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was absolutely
awesome! The kids were totally enthralled by him and exhausted by the end of
it! One of the best entertainers I have encountered! Thank you so much. Best
Jo Conroy, Balham, London SW12
‘Hi Danny, Sophie (Carmichael) was fantastic yet again – the children loved her. I’ve already had two parents (who weren’t even there) ask for your details after their children said how much fun they had. Many thanks again.’
Victoria Sigeti, Blackheath, London SE3
‘Hi Danny, thanks so much (to James Camp) for a brilliant afternoon yesterday. The kids all had a great time and so many parents complimented us this morning on such a great party, saying how fab he was. As parents it was probably the most enjoyable party we'd hosted! James was brilliant - the kids were all really engaged and having great fun. He had great rapport with them. My son just had a blast and he had the best birthday! It was the least stressful party we've hosted as we knew the kids were having a great time. Thanks again, and we'll definitely think of you next year!
Jo Fulford, Clapham, London SW4
‘Dear Danny, Witch Sophie (Carmichael) was a complete star! We hadn't quite appreciated how hectic 30 kids could be, but she had them eating out of her hand. Iris and Erin were entranced and thought she was so funny. I will certainly spread the word. Many thanks for making the girls day.’
Una Shah, Forest Hill, London SE23
‘Hi, James (Camp) was excellent. He kept twenty two children completely engaged for the whole party and I would thoroughly recommend him to other parents. The feedback from the parents at the party was also very positive.’
Emily Williams, West Norwood, London SE27
‘Hi Danny, James (Camp) was a big success and held the attention of 17 discerning 6-8 year olds for 2 hours which is no mean feat! This made the party super easy and allowed the parents to relax, knowing their children were having a brilliant time being entertained by Detective Dan. Lots of parents texted me afterwards to say their children had gone to bed exhausted but happy and you can’t ask for more than that! I should also say that James was polite and easy going and a great advert for your company as he was totally unflappable and made the whole process of arrangements etc very easy. Thank you again!’
Amy Bell, Hamsey, Nr Lewes, East Sussex BN8
‘Hi Danny, thanks - he was great! The parents and kids both loved Jack (Vine) as Space Cadet Danny; he was a real hit. Bobby was thrilled with the space adventure. Everything was so well organised and seamless too. Great value and no stress.’
Kim Dhillon, Camberwell, London SE5
‘Hi Danny, we were delighted with the party on Sunday. Please pass on our thanks to Max (Warrick) for making the afternoon so special for Daniel and Lucy. Max did a great job entertaining the children and even managed to keep the peace when a few little pirates decided to engage in some sword-fighting! All the guests seemed to enjoy themselves, and one six year-old told us that it was the best party she had ever been to.’
Hannah Whiffen, Baldock, Herts, SG7
‘Hi Danny, thanks so much for Sammy's brilliant party on Saturday. All the kids really enjoyed it and we would definitely recommend Nutty's Children's Parties. We were impressed with how you kept 20 five year olds captivated and entertained for 2 hours!’
Claire Fieldsend, Muswell Hill, London N11 2TE
‘Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was brilliant, as ever - complete control of the room which was amazing for 25 kids or mainly boisterous boys! Made the party effortless for us and James absolutely loved it! Many thanks!!’
Caroline Kenny (repeat client), Herne Hill, London SE24
‘Danny, James (Camp) was excellent. The kids were enthralled. He transported them to a magical undersea world in our back garden. Our boys haven’t stopped talking about it. His parting comments to the kids to remember to ‘be kind, be courageous and be happy’ delighted all the parents. It’s just what we’d hope to be able to install in our kids.’
Adriana Paice, Richmond, Surrey TW9
‘Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Max (Warrick) for today. Finn absolutely loved the entertainment. And he handled the children very well, thank you so much.’
Bree McDougall, Lee, London SE12
‘Dear Danny, just a quick email to say how well Jacob's party went. Richard (Jackson) was fantastic as Dan The Fireman. He kept 28 children entertained and they all had a great time. Jacob, the birthday boy, loved it. He can be quite shy but Richard was able to boost his confidence and he loved being involved with all the action and the centre of attention. Jacob is planning his next birthday party all ready!’
Jennie Blake, Old Coulsdon, Surrey CR5
‘Hi Danny, James (Camp) was brilliant on Saturday and all the children were thoroughly entertained. His Jedi training was ...out of this world. Thanks so much.’
Tamasin Absolon, Rusthall, Kent TN4
‘Hi Danny, once again, Nutty's proves to be the ultimate in stress-free party management. Max (Warrick) had 26 kids completely enthralled for a solid hour, and then for another half hour despite the fact that by that point they were charged up on cake, biscuits and jelly sweets. He pitched it perfectly for a group that ranged in age from 3 to nearly 7, with just the right level of 'mild peril' for the slightly older ones and great storytelling for the littler ones. The unexpected freezing weather meant he couldn't use the garden as much as we'd hoped, but he managed the slightly cramped indoor space brilliantly, and we got to sit around drinking tea and having a chat. Happy birthday boy, happy kids, happy parents, can't ask for more really :) Thanks again.’
Sian Halkyard, Tufnell Park, London N19
‘Thanks Danny, Dan (Abelson) was excellent. He was fantastic at keeping 18 children completely engaged and I heard comments from the kids including- 'Best party ever' [7 year old comment] and 'I think you're the nicest man in the world' [said by 5 year old to Dan].’
Ciaran Quinn, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Surrey KT2
‘Hi Danny, many thanks to Bob Nicholson (Danijel The Space Warrior) who put on a fabulous party. He managed to entertain over 20 Star Wars loving five and six year olds for 2 hours. They all loved it and we're enthralled throughout. My six year old says the party was " BRILLIANT, THE BEST PARTY EVER, THANK YOU.'
Chris Davidson, Gateshead, Tyne &
Hi Danny, thanks so much for such a brilliant party last Saturday- you were awesome! Such talent to be able to keep such young kids totally gripped for the entire time. Everyone commented how great you were with the kids and with a dry sense of humour that parents enjoyed too. Hope you thawed out OK when you got home! I'll definitely be in touch again and I know lots of other parents will be too. Huge huge thanks again.’
Alison Hudd, Duwich, London SE21
‘Hi Danny, I just wanted to send our thanks for today. Max (Warrick) did a fantastic job of entertaining the children and Rocco had the best time! Please would you pass on our thanks to Max - especially for trekking all the way to Edenbridge!’
Emma Reynolds, Edenbridge, Kent TN8
‘Hi Danny, I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed we were with 'Danijel the Space Warrior'...aka: Dan (Slade)! He was absolutely fantastic with the children and managed to keep them engaged and having fun for the full 2 hours (not easy!). The parents were all full of praise for him and Arthur (the birthday boy) absolutely loved his party! Thank you so much - Danijel really made the day!!’
Hazel White, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2
‘Hi Danny, thank you so much for Harris’s birthday party on Saturday (as Pirate Dan). All the children who participated really enjoyed themselves and Harris was talking about it all day and has not taken his medal off! Hopefully see you or one of your other guises i
n the not too distant future as Harris and Aryn grow up. Thanks again.’
Suzanne Nicholson, Surbiton, Surrey KT6
‘Danny, please thank Max (Warrick) so much for an incredible party. Chloe loved it, as did all her friends. We've had a number of parties for the kids over the years and he's the first to keep them all totally captivated (and under control!) for the full 2 hours, so the grown ups had a brilliant time too. Everyone raved about him, and any flyers he left were snapped up so hopefully we will see him again very soon. ‘
Harriet Bathurst Norman, Balham, London SW12
‘Danny, please pass on our huge thanks to Max (Warrick) who was absolutely fantastic at my daughter’s 6th birthday party. I’ll admit that I was dubious before the day having never experienced a Nutty’s party before. Also, how would one man cope with a party of 30? Brilliantly is the answer! Max did a great job, the kids were enthralled and the “Explorer Dan” option fitted very well with my daughter’s request for a leopard party (?!). The most relaxed children’s party we have ever hosted – thank you!’
Sam Copping, Bromley, Kent BR2
'Hi Danny, the party on Saturday was excellent. Max (Warrick) did an amazing job and kept the children engaged throughout. The children had a fabulous time and I've received lots of great feedback from other parents. One parent asked her daughter if there was an entertainer at the party. She didn't think so, just someone from Star Wars!! Great praise indeed!! I wouldn't hesitate in booking you again for another party. Please pass on my thanks to Max.'
Lisa Davis, Earlsfield, London SW18
'Danny, thanks for a fabulous Disco on Saturday. The birthday girl had a wonderful time and at school this morning I heard one of her classmates declare it 'the BEST party ever.' Lots of parents commented on how great it was and how much their kids enjoyed it, too. You remain the only children's entertainer I've ever met who can totally engage a room full of five-year-olds and still be cool at the same time. No parental cringing required! Massive thanks from Cleo, Lola and us! Until next time!'
Emma Howarth (repeat client), Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1
'Hi Danny, thank you for making Max's party so special. The kids absolutely loved the dinosaur theme and had such fun exploring with the map... The dinos in jelly were a big hit! Parents all also commented on how good it was - so thank you very much!'
Laura Young, Balham, London SW12
'Hi Danny, you were great, am most impressed that you held all their attention so well for so long. Thanks again, we'll definitely recommend you and keep you in mind for future parties (once we have recovered from this year's!).'
Aisléan Nicholson, Brixton, London SW2
'Dear Danny, just a note to say thanks for providing Amy (Leighton) for us - she was absolutely great and did a fantastic job at keeping the attention of 25 x 5 year olds for an hour. They seemed to be having a lovely time and it made a big difference for us as hosts to know they were happily entertained so we could focus on the grown up attendees and the logistics of food and drink. I've already recommended you to a friend who lives in Kingston and may be giving you a call for an upcoming 5th birthday, and I'll be happy to continue spreading the word and hopefully booking again for next year.'
Lucy Smith, Streatham, London SW16
'Hi Danny, Simon (Coleman) was absolutely fantastic. He had all the children fascinated and enthralled. He dealt with the children really well- there ended up being a range of ages (unplanned siblings) which must have made his job tricky but he didn't show any signs of panic and had them all interested and entertained. The whole party felt calm - unheard of for a children's party. Many thanks to Simon, I would definitely recommend him.'
Claire Blackmore, Blackheath, London SE3
'Hi Danny, Sophie (Carmichael) was excellent. The children loved the day and I was particularly impressed that noisy props weren't used.'
Pete Harris, Peckham, London SE15
'Hi Danny, thank you so much, Joshua had a fabulous party and really enjoyed it (with Dan Slade as Sergeant Dan). The missions and activities were well thought out, all keeping in the theme and the boys all had a fab time. He especially enjoyed the assault course style activities!'
Natalie Abrahams, Radlett, Herts WD7
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was amazing!! Thanks so much for making our little girl's party so wonderful. He managed to keep all 30 children entertained and through the power of imagination - no props. Very refreshing in this day and age... A little French boy was upset at one point and James was incredible with him, bringing him back into the activities and making sure he was happy. A skilled intervention, is James a teacher?? Lol!!....Here are some of the mums quotes... Emily: 'Thanks for a brilliant party! The explorer theme was really fun and the explorer entertainer was so engaging with the kids'; Gaby: 'Thanks for a fab party. Audrey said she had a great time 'in the forests'. I have no idea how that worked in a church hall but whatever it was worked very well! ; Maria: 'Thank you so much for such a wonderful time Anastasia had at the party !! She will not stop talking about how much she liked the adventure in Africa.'
Sheila Panda, Pinner, Middlesex
'Hi Danny (and Max Warrick), thank you for Saturday - you were both awesome! And everybody seemed to have a great time. No doubt I'll be in touch sometime in the near future for the next event! Many thanks once again.'
Pip Rastall (repeat client), Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say that Eliot had a great party yesterday. He and his, very rowdy, friends loved Sporty Amy (Leighton). She did a fab job. Many thanks.'
Laura Luther, Sydenham, London SE26
'Hi Danny, Princess Amy (Leighton) and Alessandra (Tortone) were fantastic. Amy had lots of girls who joined in with everything and lots of boys who didn't! She handled the whole party with ease and was a wonderful Princess. Alessandra delighted everyone by incorporating the girls dress designs into their face paint patterns and did the best 'incredible hulk' I've ever seen! Please do thank them from me and Saskia, they were brilliant! Many thanks, until next time.'
Abigail Costin, Bishops Stortford, Herts CM23
'Danny, I just wanted to thank you and particularly Simon (Coleman) for making Dylan’s party something he will always remember. He absolutely loved it. We really could not have asked for more. We will tell all our friends what a resounding success it was... I reiterate Patrick's comments, he had such a fantastic time, thank you and thank you to Simon. The other parents were also delighted to see their children transported to a world of adventure with Pirate Dan. It was a real delight to watch and we are very grateful.'
Patrick and Rachel Kerr, Greenwich, London SE10
'Hi Danny, a big thank you to Max (Warrick) - he did a great job and the kids loved it. Aaron (the birthday boy) was very impressed and is still talking about it. Thanks again and we'll definitely be recommending you guys - clearly a lot of thought has gone into the best way to structure things and it really showed.'
Jess Collins, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, we we're really pleased, thank you! Max (Warrick) was great, he kept the kids really involved and entertained, they loved it! Many thanks for a great service and a great party!'
Alison McKay, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, Isaac and Max had an amazing birthday party thanks to Jack (Vine). He was absolutely fantastic, keeping the children entertained and happy for the whole party. The children loved him. I really appreciated his call on Thursday to confirm everything. He arrived on time and it was very sweet of him to compliment the children on their good behaviour. Quite a few parents asked at the party what company we used and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your parties if anyone asks my opinion in the future.'
Belinda Anderson, Southfields, London SW18
'Dear Danny, we went to a party in South Leigh, Oxfordshire today with Explorer Dan (played by Dan Slade). Our lad Ben had a cracking time and was thoroughly rapt the moment Dan walked through the door. It was particularly nice for us as his class teacher has spent the last term saying he has ‘issues’ with focus and concentration - which, as we saw, is obviously not true, even with the added distractions of a bouncy castle and sweets! It just needs someone like Explorer Dan to grab the kids attention (and imagination). Ben hasn’t stopped telling us about Ferocious Frank, the map, and the quest - thanks (I think! ;) ) All the best to you and Explorer Dan.'
Jon Wade, South Leigh, Oxfordshire
'Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) really did a great job. The kids stayed engaged the whole time and had lots of fun. Most importantly Zaki thought Danny Bond was great. And Jack was very polite and kind so a pleasure to meet/have in the house... Thank you for making it such a smooth and fun experience.'
Sally Al Zaidy, Blackheath, London SE10
'Dear Danny, the children and all the adults loved the Pirate experience. Not only because it was educational, but also because it's exciting and very interactive. The children could internalise good story structure, story language and they learned how to use gesture, tone of voice and facial expression to make meaning clear. They were captivated by the humour and loved the funny parts. It was great to see them make links in their learning and apply the skills you modelled to them. We now have lots of acting out, and music and sea shanties going in our class rooms! We hope to see you again next year!'
Suzette Khun (teacher), Whitmore Primary School and Nursery, Basildon, Essex
'Hi Danny, thank you! The kids had a brilliant time and we were so impressed at the way you handled all those over excited 5 year olds! We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will make sure we don’t leave it to the last minute to book you next year! Thanks so much again for fitting us in, we really appreciated it.'
Serena Bowman, Hither Green, London SE13
'Hello Danny, the party, from the words of Joshua and his friends, was described as: "awesome", "amazing", "fun", "the best party ever in the whole world"!!! Joshua said, he liked the fact that he got a medal from Pirate Dan - awesome stuff. What more can I say...the children's experience of the day says it all. They had a great time and every child that came to our son's party was filled with so much laughter and joy from Pirate Dan's entertainment! Pirate Dan (played by Jack Vine) did an awesome job on the day. He was brilliant...filled with such an amazing energy. The Treasure Hunt was loved by all the children as they screamed excitedly searching for hidden treasures. We loved it...amazing day, filled with fun. Well done Pirate Dan. Thumbs Up!!!'
Edith Odaro, Lewisham, London SE13
'Hi Danny, we were really happy, Pirate Amy (Leighton) did a fabulous job and the children absolutely loved it. Have already passed on your details to a friend!'
Sarah McGinity, Camberwell, London SE5
'Danny, Trev (Ellis-Jones) was excellent, the kids (and adults) loved it- thanks! Really couldn't have been better; great sound, great venue which looked really festive with loads of lights etc, and Trev worked really hard and the kids all joined in and had fun. You were very right about the break being needed..! Thanks so much, would definitely use Trev/ Nutty's again and I think lots of other parents felt the same way.'
Charlotte Hills, Peckham, London SE15
'Dear Danny, I just wanted to email straight away to say that we had a fantastic Drama Workshop Party with Max (Warrick) today. Isabel had a brilliant time and we were so impressed with your script and how you worked with the Horrible Histories theme. It really entertained the children and Max really held their attention- and the whole thing was very stress free for us. Your organisation and communication throughout were great. I can't recommend you highly enough! Hopefully there'll be some repeat business coming your way as there was really good feedback from the parents too. With thanks and all good wishes.'
Ginny Hearn, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Hi Danny, many thanks to Max (Warrick). Will’s party was a great success (he described it as “awesome!”). Max held the kids’ attention from start to finish and gave me a very relaxed party - so, many thanks for that!! Have been spreading the work with other parents we know and would happily recommend you and your team. Many thanks.'
Ben Tunball, Greenwich, London SE10
'Hi Danny, Pirate Dan (played by Jack Vine) was brilliant! The kids absolutely loved him and got totally involved. He was very funny. Raleigh had a real blast and this morning she asked me when her friend Pirate Dan was going to visit her at her house… Hmmm. Not for a year or so! Many thanks to Jack who did a great job and worked very hard. I’ve had a lot of parents ask me where the ‘brilliant pirate’ came from so I’m sure you’ll get some more business coming your way and I will certainly be in touch for future parties...'
Emily Hamm, Peckham, London SE15
'Hello Danny, thanks a lot for Saturday. You did an excellent job, the children loved it and we were very impressed with your ability to create a character (with no props) and to hold all the (numerous) children together, keeping their attention until the end, for all age groups.'
Solene Sharpe (repeat client), Richmond, Surrey TW9
'Dear Danny, first of all thank you for creating such a memorable day for Siana, Olivier and all of their friends. The parents were so impressed, people have been stopping me during drop off just to thank us for putting together a fun and engaging afternoon. Secondly, we have been asked by quite a few parents for your contact details and have passed them on as I'm sure they will also be considering you for their children's parties. Looking forward to seeing you again soon.'
Shailina Sekhon, Richmond, Surrey TW9 (joint party parent with the above)
'Danny, Amy (Leighton) was absolutely brilliant. She took the kids with her every step of the way on their adventure- it really was so lovely to see just how engaged and excited they all were. Even the most reticent children were participating after a while. Everyone had fun, even the adults watching. I loved how the story incorporated lots of make believe and games too. A bit of dancing at the end was a fab way to end on a high. Phoebe (birthday girl) spontaneously threw her arms around Amy to say goodbye which, for me, spoke volumes. Please pass on our thanks to Amy for making Phoebe's birthday really special.'
Celine Thomas, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN11
'Hi Danny, just to say Jack (Vine) did an amazing job at the party on Saturday keeping thirty 4 and 5 year olds fully engaged and entertained on their dinosaur adventure. I've had lots of feedback from parents saying what a great time their children said they had at the party and my son, Josh, absolutely loved it. Please pass on my thanks again to Jack.'
Caroline Evans, Streatham, London SW16
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic Space Warrior (Star Wars) party on Saturday. My son and his party guests were absolutely enthralled and had a brilliant time. I have absolute admiration for anyone who can keep 19 little boys under control whist simultaneously providing them with loads of fun! Thanks again.'
Jenni Sach, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN4
'Hi James (Camp), just thought you may like to know that Harrison has been wearing the medal you gave him 24/7 since the party on Saturday- in bed and to school this morning! Very happy boy.'
Jo Sandwell, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1
'Danny, the party was great! Space Cadet Danny (played by Max Warrick) had the children captivated from the moment he arrived. He crawled on the floor with them as they searched for the lost treasure. He was a great help during the cake and kept them going to the last. Would recommend for any child interested in space OR not. Thanks so much!'
Trish Hart, Twyford, Berkshire RG10
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to pass on our thanks to James (Camp) as Pirate Dan. He was absolutely brilliant with the kids and Zac adored him. He has been telling me all weekend that the Treasure Hunt was the best thing he has ever done! He had them enraptured from the word go and even dealt with a few loud ones beautifully. Many thanks and we'll be back next year!'
Dominique Sherry, Reigate, Surrey, RH2
'Dear Danny, Jack (Vine) was brilliant on Sunday. He had the majority of the children mesmerised for the full hour, while keeping the one or two unrulier souls well under control... He was a total pleasure to talk to when the occasion arose. We all - young and old - had a great day and that was in large part due to his professionalism taking all the stress out of it for us as parents and his sense of fun giving the children a joyful afternoon. The most exciting part of the whole afternoon for our 6 year old birthday girl was having her photo taken with Explorer Dan. What a hero! Thank you for organising it.'
Caroline Kenny, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, Holly and all the kids loved the day (with Amy Leighton), it was brilliant how engaged they were in the story. They really used there imaginations without the need for any fancy props. There were lots of different kids from different places and you got them all to mix together - so much fun for kids and adults (we actually got to have a conversation).'
Jo McMahon, Brockley, London SE4
'Hi Danny, glad it went well - my daughter came along and had a great time!
Thanks to you for your part in creating such a wonderful day in East Dulwich (for the East Dulwich Christmas Cracker event)
Dan Rigby, organiser of the East Dulwich Christmas Cracker, London SE22
'Hi Danny, I would just like to thank you for an amazing birthday party for Charlie. He loved every minute. "Danijel" (played by Bob Nicholson) was amazing and kept all of the children entertained. Very professional, we will definitely be recommending you to all our friends and family. Thanks again.'
Andrea Wray, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE7
'Highly recommend @nuttyscparties, the children at Clare House had an amazing time at their spooky disco .'
Clare House Primary School PTA (via Twitter), Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Witch Amy (Leighton), thank you for making my birthday the best ever!'
Dorothy, birthday girl, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Thanks so much to Trev (Ellis-Jones) for a great afternoon. Thank you so much for entertaining the kids... and the adults! Our boys said it was the most awesome party ever!! Big praise indeed!'
Louise Campbell, Streatham, London SW2
'Dear Danny, many thanks for sending us Princess Ishani (Basu) to lead our Princess Adventure. Princess Ishani had the children spell bound as she lead them on their way to find magical sweets. It was evident that all of the children had an amazing time, as did the adults. One mum informed me that it was the most engaged she had seen her son at a party and they've attended many! The second half was also great fun with games and dancing. Evelyn told me the next morning that she'd had a great birthday. We were really impressed at Ishani's skill at holding their attention for the entire party and her professionalism over maintaining her character. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nutty's to anyone needing a children's entertainer or even book you again for another party.'
Nanette Mills, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, please tell James (Camp) we were all very happy with the party and impressed with him, including his ability to immediately include children arriving after he'd started. The best proof of this was Crysya telling me she's like the same party, with James, next year! I think she may want to try another theme by then, but we'll certainly consider James and your company for future parties, and we would recommend you. So thanks very much to James and yourself for a lovely day.'
Chris Betts, Enfield, Middlesex EN1
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was absolutely amazing!!! The kids loved him (and the adults)- he was really incredible! Thank you and James very much for making our space themed party come to life! I will be recommending you to all our friends and family and will be in touch next year!'
Rebecca Cella, West Dulwich, London SE27
'Dear Danny, thank you very much for the Dj-ing you did on Saturday (Nutty's Disco). The children and especially Daisy LOVED it and there were many parents who commented how brilliantly they thought you kept them entertained. We will certainly pass your details on. From a personal perspective, any children’s party DJ who plays AC/DC certainly gets a big thumbs up!'
Chris and Victoria Wren, Shepherd's Bush, London W12

Nanette Mills, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for yesterday, you were great (as Sportsman Dan) and you made giving the party so much more relaxing for us...Thanks again for all your excellent work. Otto and Theo thoroughly enjoyed it and it was a great treat for Sadie and me to be able to enjoy the party without being responsible for organising all those sports and games. We will certainly recommend you to others by word of mouth.'
Sadie & Gideon Holland, Raynes Park, London SW19
'Hi Danny, the kids had a great time with Max (Warrick) as Pirate Dan. Max was very professional and did a wonderful job getting the kids to engage particularly as we had a range of ages. My kids are still talking about the treasure hunt! I would definitely recommend Nutty's Children's Parties. Thanks also for all your help.'
Juliet Chambers, Enfield EN2
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was wonderful. He had a group of 3 to 5 year olds enthralled with his Dinosaur adventures. I've never seen a group of children so calm at a party! We have never had a party entertainer before, it was lovely to be able to chat to friends and family while the children were busy on their adventure. The parents were similarly impressed and everyone said what a lovely party it was. Dexter loved his Jurassic World themed party and talked at length to Explorer Dan long after the other children had gone in for the party tea!'
Emma Perkins, Hampton Hill, TW12
'Danny, Max (Warrick) was great – really engaged with the children, and took care of complete entertainment and co-ordination of 14 five year olds with ease. Henry had an excellent time...Danny Just to follow up on George's comments, the feedback I have had from other parents since Sunday has been wonderful - all the children went home absolutely raving about it, many calling it "the best party they had ever been to" - definitely all due to Max! Henry already has his eye on a superhero party for next year so we will be in touch for sure! Many thanks.'
George and Gemma Osbourne, Clapham, London SW4
'Hi Danny, a very sincere thank you for making Jack's 5th birthday party such a special event!! We have had a lot of party entertainers over the years but I have to say that you were by far the best, particularly in the way that you engaged with the children. Your delivery of Super Dan's performance was pitched absolutely perfectly for their age group and all 28 children were utterly engrossed by Super Dan and his story from the very moment you/he greeted them. To be fair, even the adults were chuckling away a lot of the time :) Several of the mums have said how good they thought you were and many of the children have told us that it was "the best party EVER". Thanks so much again for making the party such a success for Jack - I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and we will be in touch again I'm sure for future birthday parties!! All the best.'
Lisa Cater, Barnes, London SW13
'Thanks Danny, Simon (Coleman) did a sterling job. I felt sorry for him as the parents were all so interested (I think there were a quite a few who wouldn't have minded coming dressed up themselves!) and a few of the children were a bit reluctant to leave them and join Pirate Dan's crew. However, Oli and his besties stuck with him and loved every second! One of his friends in particular never usually likes to get involved but was even challenging Pirate Dan to a duel at one point. His Mum was over the moon and is still messaging me about it! Great party for Oli so thank you and thank Simon! Thanks again.'
Liz Quinney, Purley, Surrey CR8
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was genuinely brilliant, such a lovely guy (in and out of character, and he pitched it perfectly for our shy four year old). For very good reason he got a very warm round of applause from everyone at the end! Everything was just brilliant with the adventure, and Max engaged every single child in the group (ranging in age from 2 to 7 - no easy task! - but Max did it superbly). A real treat to have a pirate sing your Happy Birthday song and cut the cake, absolutely worth it. Can’t thank Max enough really, please do pass on the biggest thank you you can. Thanks so much again.'
Louise Kimerling, Peckham, London SE15
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was very good on Saturday and everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. The event took place in our garden and our living room, which overall was not an extensive area. But James made the most of it, and the adventure flowed happily between the two places, even when everybody had to hop through a not-insignificant crowd of on-looking grownups. James was full of energy and yes the ancient Greek theme was dully respected. Also, he took care to bestow equal amounts of attention and praise to both my children. James was nice enough to call me a couple of days ahead of the event to go through the details and on the day he was punctual and very pleasant to talk to. Most of the parents gave me very good comments about him on their way out...I will definitely be talking to you again next year. Oh, and I loved the explorer outfit!'
Georgia Kaliora, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, A very big THANK YOU for such an awesome party today! All the kids loved it and were captivated, and all the Mums and Dads were super impressed (with you) too. Hugo tells us he "had the best birthday ever!" So we could not be more pleased and grateful. I hope you had a good time too and enjoy the rest of the summer with your family.'
Ben Evans (repeat client), Ascot, Berkshire SL5
'Hi Danny, we had a brilliant time with Jack as Space Cadet Danny on Sunday. All the kids (& adults) thought he was great, thanks very much. I'll be sure to spread the word. Thanks again!'
Gillian Arnold, Hurst, Berkshire, RG10
'Danny, Max (Warrick) was wonderful, brilliant and a total professional! Big thanks, he earnt his money and had 20 x 3-4 year olds captivated for the entire time. He worked really hard and was a credit to himself and your team. Made for a stress-free 2 hours for me and my husband. He's the talk of Royston now- bless him. Thanks again!'
Debbie Casey, Barkway, Herts SG8
'Hi Danny, the party was a great success. Thank you!! Super Amy (Leighton) was fantastic. The kids loved her. Especially the birthday girl.'
Amy Brocklehurst (repeat client), East Dulwich, London SE22
'Ahoy there Submarine Dan (played by Danny Nutt). Just a quick note to say thank you so much for coming to Edward's party today. You were a big hit and had all of the children having heaps of fun in their Under the Sea Adventure. We had great feedback from the parents who stayed and the lady who runs the hall took some of your cards as she thought you sounded great! So thanks for another fab party!'
Claire Louise Molony (repeat client), Bromley, Kent BR1
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to drop you a line and say a HUGE thank you to James (Camp) for doing such a brilliant job on Saturday as Knight Daniel. He kept nearly 20 kids completely enthralled from start to finish, they loved the challenge of it all, and it was wonderful to see their imaginations at work. Henry was grinning from ear to ear the whole time, and hasn't stopped talking about it. Several of the parents commented on how relaxed everything was, and after all the planning it was such a relief for us to just be able to sit back and enjoy the afternoon. This was the first time we'd hosted a party this big, and the first time we'd hired an entertainer and James was worth every penny. I predict both my boys will be having a Nutty's party for the foreseeable future! Please pass on my thanks to James for all his efforts, he's a very talented chap, I cannot recommend him enough!'
Sian Halkyard, Tufnell Park, London N19
'Hi Danny, we just wanted to say that the party was absolutely brilliant and my husband and I couldn't speak more highly of Dan (Abelson). Having not been to a Nutty's Party before, so going purely on the recommendation of a close friend, I was rather nervous (I am rather a control freak and like to do everything myself!) but I needn't have worried. From the moment Dan arrived he was friendly and warm to Joshua, and once the party began Joshua didn't take his eyes off him once! All the children were completely captivated and considering their class teacher last year said they were quite a 'difficult' class I think this proved otherwise! Capture their imaginations and they will be enthralled and listen intently! We even had a 3 year old and an 8 year old girl who I didn't think would join in, but they did too. For what it's worth, I don't think they are a difficult class - there are just a few more lively boys who need to have their imaginations engaged with in order to keep them interested - and Dan did just that.
Quite a number of the parents in the room (including my mum) are currently or have been teachers, and they ALL (& many other parents) commented on how well Dan held all the children's attention and kept them interested and laughing...Many of the parents were also very impressed that he was keeping them captivated without the need for any props or constant sweetie bribes, too. All in all we were absolutely over the moon with Joshua's party - we couldn't have asked for more, we've passed your details on to all the parents who asked, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others. I asked Joshua what the best bit about the party was and he said (very passionately!) "ALL of if!" ... I think that tells you everything! So, thank you very much to Dan and a big, big thumbs up.'
Nina and Robert Denny, Biggin Hill, Kent TN16
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to write and say thanks to Max (Warrick) and to you for a great party for Barnaby. Max did a brilliant job. He was responsive to the children and as a result kept their attention really well for the whole first hour. Not an easy thing with 20 four year olds. The story was great and worked well. The second half of the party was good too and the kids loved having a dance. It meant that I genuinely could relax (as Max had told me I would when he rang for the briefing call) and enjoy the party myself. We will definitely be in touch again! Thank you.'
Jennie Moule, Peckham, London SE15
'Thanks Danny! James (Camp) was great. George and all his pals had a great time. Interestingly, even with all the games and sweets and presents I asked George what his favourite bit of the party was and he said 'the treasure map'. It's a genius idea.'
Jane Harrington, Crystal Palace, London SE19
'Hi Amy (Leighton), thank you very much for today. Henry and Sophia were so thrilled with their party. You were brilliant at keeping the kids engaged and it was perfect for both girls and boys. I've already had lots of "thank you's" from parents whose kids loved it. You made it a really brilliant party! Thank you again!'
Eleanor Newton, Wimbledon, London SW19
'Danny! Every parent (and some adults that just took part anyway!) said the children's entertainment absolutely made the day on Saturday (at the wedding) and it was perfect. My niece and bridesmaid, Emily, loved Pirate Dan (played by Dan Abelson) and Sam, my nephew, said he had "the time of his life" at the children's Disco (run by Danny). Thank you for making our day so special and I will happily leave testimonials on Facebook and Twitter below explaining just how awesome your company is and that everyone should book you! A lot of the parents were taking flyers so hopefully you'll get some referrals from them and if I ever need a children's party I know exactly who to contact. Have a great day and thanks again for being thoroughly awesome!'
Abi Caldwell, West Dulwich, London SE21
'Dear Danny, a huge thanks to you and Max (Warrick), who was great as Sergeant Dan for Freddie's 5th Birthday party. I have posted a review on Facebook. Once again you have given us a winner!! It is a real pleasure to say that I found it one of the most stress free parties I have had. Thanks again.'
Candice Schneider (repeat client), Richmond, Surrey TW10
'Hi Princess Sophie (Carmichael), just to say many thanks for entertaining Rebecca and her friends with the Princess Adventure yesterday. Rebecca loved it and we were impressed how you kept all the children's attention. We will bear you in mind for Rebecca's 5th birthday party!'
Tessa Seymour, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2
'Danny, Sam (O'Hanlon) was great as 'Super Dan' at Henry's party and all the children really enjoyed themselves. He was professional throughout and very good with the children; he held their attention, kept them active & made it all fun. I would certainly recommend you locally but know that you have already done 3 of the parties in Henry's class so the word has spread. Thanks again.'
Susan House, Oxted, Surrey RH8
'Danny, thank you soooo much for Friday! It was an awesome party and you had the kids joining in with everything at every stage. We loved it and so did Josh and his friends.'
Kate Ankers, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Danny, thanks so much for sending us Trev (Ellis-Jones) for Posy's party. Trev was 'trevmendous'! He played a brilliant eclectic mix of music, ran some great games and appeared to enjoy himself just as much as the 20 five year olds that were there, as did I.'
Annie Paul (repeat client), West Norwood, London SE27
'Hello Danny, I would like just to say a huge thank you to you and Max (Warrick) for the amazing birthday party my son had! He is usually not enjoying the parties with entertainers and rarely joins in, that's why I was looking for a really awesome type of entertainment- led birthday party that would keep the kids (and mainly the birthday boy) engaged, when I stumbled upon Nutty's Children's Parties on Netmums. Well, I can testify myself that each and every praise I read about it is absolutely true. The kids were captivated for 2 hours! They LOVED every minute! As did we! What an awesome type of a party and what a brilliant entertainer! Thank you very, very much! Best wishes and hope to work with you again!'
Snejana Simeonova, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was fantastic at Kitty's Superhero party on Saturday. Her ability to hold the attention of 18 children at once amazed all parents in attendance and Kitty was still talking about the treasure hunt at breakfast this morning. Again, we can't thank you and Emerald enough for a fantastic party as we had from you guys last year... I have passed on your info to a few mums at the party. Thanks again.'
Rosie Tilling (repeat client), Balham, London SW17
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was absolutely fantastic. The children all had a wonderful time and the parents continually asked us how we had found him (obviously we passed-on the company name and details). Thank you very much to you and James; we would not hesitate to recommend Nutty's to anyone.'
Edward Hunt, Dulwich, London SE21
'Hi Danny, another brilliant party from Nutty's. Max (Warrick) as Wizard Dee and Fairy Sophie (Carmichael) were hugely enthusiastic and the kids loved them. My 5 year old son was set on a Harry Potter party and was totally enthralled by the wizard adventure. This is the third time we have chosen a Nutty's Adventure Party and we weren't disappointed. We had over 40 children in our back garden this year - Max and Sophie managed them perfectly and kept them entertained for nearly an hour, an amazing feat! The adults just had to sit back and watch. Danny you were super efficient and helpful in your organisation as always too. Thank you Nutty's!'
Arlette Weatherall (repeat client), East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, James (Camp) was brilliant and the kids absolutely loved him. They were so engrossed in what Pirate Dan had to say and were listening to every single word he was saying. It was very good and I would highly recommend James as an entertainer. The adults really enjoyed it too and were impressed how he was able to capture 20 five year old's attention! Thanks James for making my son's fifth birthday a special day.'
Elodie Monnier, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hello Danny, well what can we say! Sam (O'Hanlon) was absolutely brilliant! He kept all the kids entertained from start to finish, they were all exhausted by the end and left very happy. The use of their imaginations rather than props is a fantastic idea and works brilliantly. We will most definitely be booking you again for future parties. Thank you, thank you, thank you!'
Beth & Steve Lowe, Braintree. Essex. CM77
'Hi Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was fantastic – the children really responded well to her and all ran around having a wonderful time. From my point of view, I was particularly impressed that Emerald dealt so well with lots of the children arriving in the middle of the session, and worked round that when we wanted to cut and serve the cake. I was very grateful not to be controlling that unruly mob myself, please pass on my sincere thanks to her!'
Vicky Brown, Greenwich, London SE10
'Hi Danny, thanks for getting in touch. We are all still recovering from the party as you can imagine! The girls and their friends had a great time and James (Camp) kept them entertained and laughing which was no small feat. He was fun to watch; thanks for stepping in at such short notice. James warned me not to let the kids see him out of character - apparently my daughter spotted him on the way out and said "he's not a real knight, I saw him not wearing his knight clothes". My quick thinking husband said to her he had to go in disguise out on the street so no-one would know who he is - like a superhero. She seems to have bought it...I'd be happy to recommend Nutty's to anyone who is having a party and needs an entertainer.'
Tanya Smith, West Norwood, London SE27
'Hi Danny, Witch Amy (Leighton) was a miracle. And the kids had a great one. Thank you!'
Naomi Wattis (repeat client), Dulwich, London SE21
'Hi Danny, we really pleased with the party- both birthday boys had a great time. It's no mean feat to keep so many kids (predominantly boys) interested and engaged for such a long time. Our thanks go to Sam (O'Hanlon) for all his efforts and to you for a very professional service.'
Maria Holdon, Amersham, Bucks HP6
'Danny, we were very impressed with Jack Vine and the party he provided. He arrived just as planned and was affable and easy to get along with-even in my semi stressed state. I was nervous before the party (which was in our house for 13, 7year old boys!). I was having second thoughts-I worried I was mad to have considered it. Jack, unlike me, was calm and collected. He popped out in full costume just as the first guest arrived and kept the boys entertained throughout. They were captivated by the adventure....the few adults present merely hovered. We zoomed in at feeding time, then Jack was off again. It was a quality party that I was proud to have hosted. No i-pads or x-boxes in sight.'
Anna Kenyon, Welwyn, Herts AL6
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say that we had a brilliant party with Trev on Sunday. He was fantastic with the children, and given that it was quite a difficult demographic of boys and girls aged 10, on a very hot day with a tempting garden outside, he had them all engaged and happy and having a really good time. He quite rightly didn’t get stressed at all when they all ran outside to play as he realised that they were still having a great time and just needed a bit of fresh air and a rest from the dance floor. He was brilliant and I would happily book him again. Thank you for all your help with booking our party and look forward to speaking again in the future.'
Mary Eustace, Shepherd's Bush, London W12
'Dear Danny, thank you very much. James (Camp) was great and the children had fabulous time! Thanks again.'
Arena Valentina, Primrose Hill, London NW1
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say how great Pirate Dan (played by Max Warrick) was at Maisy's party on Sunday. He was amazing- he kept the kids totally engaged for the whole session while he took them on a magical pirate journey! They all loved it and Maisy said it was the best party ever so thank you very much! I will definitely recommend you and 'like' you on Facebook. Thanks again. I'm sure we will use you again!'
Catherine Bennett, Wimbledon, London SW20
'Hi Danny, thank you so much for both your spectacular performers. Witch Amy (Leighton) was amazing and had the kids wrapped round her little finger. She held their attention brilliantly and they really loved their adventure with her. I keep getting asked when she's coming again...Super Dan (played by James Camp) had a tough crowd of different aged kids and boisterous boys but he really rose to the challenge. He is hilarious and amazing with children. They adored getting stuck in to their super hero adventure with him. Thank you again, your team really do such a great job and they are always so nice.'
Naomi Wattis (repeat client), Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, Simon (Coleman) was fabulous despite some rampaging kids! Archy loved his party and woke me up early this morning to repeat all the things they had to do at the party! The acoustics were terrible too so I was so impressed he kept it up. I'd defintely recommend you guys again. Next time I think if I stuck to that venue I'd do your Disco party! Thanks again.'
Lucy Stephen, Upper Norwood, London SE19
'Dear Danny, Simon (Coleman) was fantastic we had such a lot of feedback from the parents saying how good he was and how much their children enjoyed the party! We were all amazed that he managed to hold pretty much all of their attention for 2 whole hours!!! We were both pleased we booked Simon and don't know what we would have done without him, so please pass on our comments and say a big "Thank you!!!" to him. Will definitely recommend Nutty's!'
Miranda Lehmann, Ash, Surrey GU12
'Hi Danny, thank you sooo much for yesterday, exceeded our expectations once again, just a brilliant day and simply amazing to see how you captured 25 roudy 5 year olds for 2 hours. Both children and adults raved about it and Dylan found it magical - he even thought you were responsible for it snowing on his birthday! Thanks again - you really deserve your reputation as the areas best children entertainer! Many thanks.'
Aimee Louzado (repeat client), Camberwell, London SE5
'Hi Danny, the party was great, thanks so much! And Oli (Jackson) was brilliant! They had so much fun and lots of parents said "this guy is awesome!" We had to wrap it up about 15 minutes early because they were all a little over excited/exhausted, but they had such a ball! Thanks Danny and Oli!'
Hannah Lock, Chiswick, London W4
'Hi Danny, thanks so much for Saturday. It was absolutely fantastic, the kids had a great time!! We're looking forward booking you again in the future. Take care and have a great week!'
Maarten Klein, Ealing, London W5
'Hi Danny, Oliver's party was brilliant and so many people have commented on how good you were. You did a fantastic job of keeping the children entertained (all 30 of them) and us adults also enjoyed your story telling and humour. Don't be surprised if we ask you back again for future birthdays! I will sort out some photo's/video to send to you and of course will spread the word for anyone else looking for a great entertainer. Thanks again.'
Kate Corby, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN2
'Hello Danny, just a short note to say how terrific Max (Warrick) was at Rupert's Explorer Dan & The Dinosaurs 5th birthday party this afternoon. Rupert had a wonderful time and we were impressed that Max was able to hold the attention of so many children. Our son can be very shy, so it was lovely to see him running around, pretending to be a prehistoric crocodile, with a huge grin on his face. He was very pleased that a "real life explorer" brought out his birthday cake!'
Ashley and Kerry Snee, Bromley, Kent BR1
'Dan (Abelson) did a fantastic job - he was brilliant! The kids had an amazing time, he kept them really enthralled throughout. We were very impressed! Lots of families stopped me in the playground this morning to mention that their child had said how much fun they had. Thanks again.'
Sarah Horner, Peckham, London SE15
'Hi Danny, we thought Simon (Coleman) was great as Explorer Dan and Orson adored his Dinosaur Adventure! All the parents were happy too as their children apparently slept very well that night!'
Olivia Searle, Raynes Park, London SW20
'Hello Danny, Max (Warrick) was brilliant. He had all the children (mostly five year olds but some aged 6-11) completely absorbed and excited but beautifully behaved. It wasn't anywhere near as crazy and loud as I thought it would be, just really high spirited and fun (though I'm glad they were able to spill out into the garden...). Birthday girl had a brilliant time and I think all her friends did too. So thank you very much. My mum thought I was mad for for doing it but it certainly made my life a lot easier!'
Anna Crane, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, Sam (O'Hanlon) was amazing as 'Super Dan' on Saturday at Harry's 5th birthday party. A big thank you to him from all of us. All the children really loved the adventure in trying to find the treasure and defeating 'Mad Mike' in the process. There were lots of smiles and laughter from all the children and even the parents seemed to enjoy themselves too! A few parents enquired about how to book you guys for their child's party and one parent said it was the best children's party she had ever been to!'
Carol Killick, New Addington, Croydon, Surrey CR0
'Hi Danny! You were amazing. A massive thank you from us! Wizard Dee was absolutely fantastic. Lola, Cleo and their friends were totally enthralled by the magical adventure and all the parents wanted to know where I found you. I honestly don't know how you do it! We'll definitely be back for more next year! Thanks again. We totally love the imagination you put into your adventures.'
Emma Howarth, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN1
'Dear Danny, Oli (Jackson) was terrific – completely engaged all the kids from the very start and they all had a great time so thank you!'
Polly Mackay (repeat client), Clapham, London SW4
'Sophie (Carmichael) was incredible – a child whisperer! She made Chloe's party very special indeed, we want her back already!'
Lucy Chamberlain, Streatham, London SW16
'Hi Danny, Pirate Dan (played by Max Warrick) was fantastic at our 6 year olds recent birthday party. He had an audience of 20 five and six year olds captivated for the whole time - which I was extremely grateful for! The kids thoroughly enjoyed participating in all the games and songs, and seemed to have a great time. We really appreciated the fantastic service from Nutty's Children's Parties - all the email and verbal communications were efficient and informative and made us feel very reassured that the day was going to run as smoothly as a 6 year old birthday party can possibly run! Thanks again for all your help.'
Kirsty Stone, Wimbledon, London SW19
'Hi Danny, Oli (Jackson) was amazing and everyone loved it (the Disco party) !!!! He really was fantastic and all the children had a wonderful time. My niece who is four is incredibly shy and never takes part in anything but even she was dancing !!! I will be sure to spread the word. Thank you for making it all so easy.'
Kate Thompson, Shepherd's Bush, London W12
'Hello Danny, we were thrilled with Jack (Vine) on Sunday - he gave Seth and the rest of us a wonderful time. Please would you pass on our thanks to Jack: he was totally reassuring when he phoned on Thursday, he very kindly texted once he'd caught the train, when he arrived he was organised; he thoroughly entertained all of the children and kept them rapt in their adventure. He has such a pleasant manner and took command of the smooth running of the party and as a result it was a lovely occasion. All credit to you as well - the ideas and structure of the adventure gave the children so much fun. It was a refreshing and imaginative experience. Thank you and best wishes for the future.'
Jo Doheny, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to send a message to say thank you so much for making my daughter's party extra special! The show was amazing! All the children were truly enthralled and hypnotised by Pirate Dan (played by Max Warrick). They were all completely captured by the story and you could see how much they all enjoyed it, their little faces full of enjoyment and seeing them join in all the fun and games, running around and screaming...it's what children love to do! So thank you so much on behalf of the entire party, all the parents loved it too, and on behalf of my daughter, it made her day!'
Sara Spano, Wallington, Surrey SM6
'Our son's 3rd Birthday party was magical because of Pirate Dan's presence. Jack and our family and in fact all his friends, still remember it with fondness. Pirate Dan greeted the children at the beginning and stayed in character throughout the party. The parents just stood back and watched, in awe (!), as the kids were all under his spell and taken on a 'pirate ship' to find 'treasure' but only after 'climbing the rigging' and embarking on several adventures. Both the kids and the parents were mesmerised by Pirate Dan, who effortlessly entertained over 30 3-4 year olds. We would highly recommend him to anyone considering entertainment for a child's party. He made an ordinary party extra-ordinary and the memory all the more special. Above all though, the birthday boy still remembers his very special birthday party.'
Tamsin Schwab, Blackheath, London, SE3
'How do you entertain 20 difficult children with 2 hands and a tongue? Employ Danny - great fun and worth every penny, especially his ability in child control!! Danny came on a sweltering day and kept the children completely spell bound and entertained for the whole duration - if only I had his parenting skills!'
Harry Bott, Kent, TN15
'Danny, thank you very much for doing such a great job yesterday, entertaining a bunch of children who didn't really know each other, for a whole two hours in blistering heat. It was lovely for us knowing that they were in such capable hands and having fun, and meant we could get on with catching up with one another without worrying about what they were doing / trashing / falling off...Lots of positive feedback from the children (who loved the sweets, grandmothers footsteps and pirate banter) and parents (how on earth did you manage to hold all those children's attention for such a long time?).So many thanks, again, and I hope you get more bookings out of the afternoon - you certainly deserve to!'
Alice Hohler, Dulwich, London SE21
'Kids love him. Adults get peace for a few hours. Danny Nutt, or should I say pirate Dan, rocks. Need I say more...'
Lucy Ryder-Richardson, Dulwich, London SE21
'Thank you so much for the wonderful Pirate Party. The children had a fantastic time and I had so many great comments from the children's mums on Monday back at school. They were very impressed with how you captivated them so well for the whole two hours. Well done and thank you for making our little girl's 5th birthday such a memorable one.'
Kim Haughey, Warlingham, Surrey, CR6
'Thank you for the great party. The children had lots of fun, they were amazed by the pirate story you told them and the games... The parents were very surprised at how they followed you during the whole party. Everybody also loved your pirate outfit, singing and treasure box full of sweeties! Thank you very much, I will highly recommend you'
Natalia Otero, Kensington, London W11
'Danny, thanks very much for coming along and working so hard to entertain everyone (parents and kids!). We had lots of happy people who really enjoyed themselves and especially the 4 year old's who apparently still haven't stopped talking about it. One of the mums has already said she is going to book you for her elder son's birthday as they thought you were fantastic. I would highly recommend you and will be doing so to anyone that needs a kids entertainer, thank you! May well see you again in the future for a different themed party as I know it would guarantee a great time for everyone, you're brilliant!'
Justine Matthews, Golders Green, London NW6
'Hi Dan, Just to say thank you for doing such an amazing job yesterday. You really kept them all captivated and Alexander had a great time. The kids all said it was a great party today and Clemency [Alexander's friend] said it was the best party she had ever been to. Worth every penny as they are quite a handful! I will certainly recommend you. Thanks again.'
Juliana Cavaliero, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Thank you Danny (or should I say Pirate Dan!) so much for keeping the 25+ children amused at Dexter's party - FANTASTIC! I don't actually think it was just the children who enjoyed your entertaining talent...I think the adults were quite impressed too! I have had numerous comments since and have even had an email from my friend's husband who had popped in that day, he has no children but he was requesting your details as he had been so impressed by how captivated the children were he had told his office and someone there thought Pirate Dan would be a great idea for their child's party! So lets hope you get a few more bookings from these recommendations!'
Amanda Bishop, Caterham, Surrey
'Thanks Danny, the party was really fantastic. You were great with the kids, you made Sam feel really special and even the adults were enjoying it too. Pirate Dan is now a legend in our house. The kids keep asking where he is. Thank you so much. I am sure we will be in touch next year!
Arefa Siddiqi, Honor Oak, London SE23
'Danny: Thank you very much again for making Luca's party such a special one - he had a fantastic time and has been talking about it all evening! I hope you are not too exhausted after all that!'
Nici Audhlam-Gardiner, Belsize Park, London NW3
'Hi Danny, they all had a great time- doing the Witches Drama Workshop Party- and Holly has already asked if you can come back again next year!! The mums I've seen since Saturday have said their girls were full of it when they got home and they all thought it was a really original and fun thing to do!! So all in all a big success! I have to say I admire your energy, enthusiasm and patience! They're a great bunch of girls but quite exhausting at times!! Thanks again for helping to make Holly's birthday a great success. :)'
Sara Robert, Tilperton, Wiltshire
'Hi Danny, Harry loved his party as did all his friends. I think all the parents there also thought Super Dan was great, so thank you again for making Harry's day go so well. And I certainly wouldn't have any hesitation at recommending you to anyone who is looking for a children's party entertainer.'
Sally Nown, Teddington, Surrey
'Dear Danny, we were very pleased with our pirate party on Saturday. Bruno had a wonderful time and the children were all fully engaged with the adventure. Dan (Abelson) did a splendid job despite background noise and numerous small children wandering across his path, next time I will have more control! Thank Dan again for us and we will recommend you without hesitation to all our friends...'
Melanie Griffith, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Just wanted to say thank you so much for a fabulous Danny Bond party yesterday! I've had some feedback from the other parents saying what a great time their kids had! The birthday boy certainly enjoyed himself. All in all we felt we got away lightly, just serving up the food!
Ingela & Nick Doyle, Twickenham, Middlesex
'Hi Danny (Pirate Dan), thank you so much for doing the most amazing job at Olivia's 5th birthday. You entertained 15 children effortlessly for two hours as well as the eight adults who found it hard to leave once they had been captivated by you! It was the first proper birthday party I had organised and the whole process was very stress free; from my dealings with you over the phone/email to your super efficient organisational skills on the day. I can not recommend you highly enough - kids and adults alike, 100% brilliant fun!'
Mags Pease, Twickenham, Middlesex
'Hi Danny, thanks so much for yesterday. Jake and his pirates and princesses had an absolutely fantastic time - Jakes exact words were "Mummy I loved my party and I loved, loved everything that Pirate Dan did, and I got to find the treasure which was cool, can he come to my party next year?!" I've had lots of texts from his friends' parents thanking me for a lovely party. Jasper the pirate said "it was the best party of his whole life!" I watched it back on video camera last night as I was too busy preparing food at the time and everything you did with the kids looked fab. You've certainly got the magic touch as after you left it decsended into chaos!! Thanks again and hope to see you next year!'
Jennifer Dunn, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny and Dan Abelson (The Super Dans), just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday, the kids all had an absolute ball, my two are still doing the 'Super Hero handshake' with great gusto and it sends them into gales of laughter. As Illy went to sleep on Saturday night he made me promise that you would be able to make it to his party next year!! So thank you again and sorry I didn't get much opportunity to say hello. Warm regards.'
Becks Calogeras, Greenwich, London SE10
'Thank you Danny- the children loved the entertainment (from Music Dan).It was exhilarating, interactive and just lots of fun. I think the boys loved your energetic way of working with them!'
Gurjit Cheema, Chelsea, London SW1
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for making William's 4th birthday party a truly memorable one. Everyone was impressed at how you managed to keep all of the children mesmerized for the full 2 hours. William hasn't stopped talking about Pirate Dan since and we have had really great comments back from our friends that their children all enjoyed themselves too. Thank you so much again and we will definitely be sure to recommend you to family and friends for future parties.'
Louise Grimsdell, Enfield, Middlesex EN2
'It was FANTASTIC! And Dylan loved it. Thank you very much for doing such a great job (with Danijel The Space Warrior). Dylan says it was his best party ever. I think we are all totally star warred out! Thanks again. I will recommend you to everyone I know...'
Karen Tas, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, thanks so much for a fantastic party on Saturday. We thought it was brilliant and we're so pleased Max and Lilia loved the Pirate Dan adventure. I've never seen Max concentrate on anything for so long.........!! Lots of people said on the day how good you were and I'm sure you'll be getting lots more bookings. We will of course recommend you to everyone! Thanks again, I'm sure we'll be seeing you soon.'
Susie Delaney, Caterham, Surrey CR3
'Hi Danny, Richard (Jackson) was nothing short of excellent in every respect! We were delighted with his Pirate Dan - he kept the kids wonderfully entertained and the show/games/story were all spot on. Won't hesitate to recommend you in the future. Many thanks!'
Nupur Manchanda, Finchley, London N3
'Danny, please pass on our thanks to Richard (Jackson) for Freddie's party today, he had a great time and I've had loads of positive feedback from the parents! And thanks to you also for organizing Richard for us. Thanks again.'
Elizabeth Parson, Welwyn, Herts AL6
'Danny, the party was great, lots of compliments from parents and I think Richard (Jackson) shared details with several of them. The kids had a fabulous time and they really enjoyed Super Dan!'
Alexis Vasquez, Clapham, London SW11
'Dear Danny, I'd been meaning to contact you to say a huge thank you for an excellent pirate party for my son Monty. You were amazing and I received a lot of compliments on your behalf on how good you were with all 17 children! Thank you for leaving some cards and I will most certainly be passing them on to interested parties. All the best and see you next year for the sport party!'
Jane Hall, Westerham, Kent TN16
'Hi Danny, thanks for the Detective Dan party. Meg really enjoyed it - she thought it was really brilliant and George thought you were very funny! We thought it was just the right level for 8 year olds. Also, I thought the party games - particualry wink murder - were great fun too'
Chris Potter, Bromley, Kent BR2
'Thanks Danny, it was amazing, you were brilliant (as Pirate Dan) and Theo had a fantastic time. It's all he's been talking about. You were especially good at making Theo feel special as it was his birthday, and he was thrilled that HE got to find the treasure etc. All the parents were very impressed, so hopefully some of them will be in touch. I'll probably be in touch again next year too….!'
Eloise Twisk, Earl's Court, London SW5
'Danny, thank you very, very much for coming to Millie's party as Knight Daniel. She, and all the children were thrilled. Back at school this week I've seen Mums who have said how well you did- and what a nice change it was to have something so different to entertain at a party. To captivate and engage 25 children for two hours, with little more than a map, is a real credit to your talent. You had limited space in which to perform, yet took the children on an adventure to a land of make believe. You looked marvellous too! Thank you again for your sterling efforts. You really did make our day special.'
Jacqueline Yeoman, Epping, Essex CM16
'Hi Danny, it was brilliant as usual! I've had lots of texts from other mums saying how much the kids loved it and the birthday boy had a great time (with Danzar The Human Monster). Yet again I was so impressed with how you handled any difficult behaviour and kept them all happy at once. See you next year for the little one's birthday!'
Sarah Harris, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, the party on Saturday was a success and Richard (Jackson) was excellent. I think you have a fantastic show that captures children’s imagination in a very special way. We have had lots of positive comments from parents who stayed at the party but also from those who weren’t and said they picked up very enthusiastic children about Pirate Dan. Well done and thank you!'
Stephanie Bourdat, Dulwich, London SE21
'Hi Danny, Eliana simply adored Knight Daniel and just as with Pirate Dan last year it's the talk of the playground with the teachers telling us they felt they had been at the party! Still don't know how you can mesmerise 20 children for so long and your Knight Daniel song was lovely. Why aren't you on CBeebies?'
Carmen and John, North Greenwich, London
'Hi Danny, the party went down a storm. Many thanks for the wonderful entertainment at our son's 5th birthday, Pirate Dan (Abelson) was simply brilliant and kept the children (even the tricky older ones) thoroughly entertained for two hours. My son Tommie had a great time and really loved the adventure treasure hunt and variety of games, especially guessing who was hiding underneath the flag. Tom was so chuffed to get a winners badge he's shown it to everyone and worn it to school all week. Best entertainment ever! The parents at the party thought it was brilliant too and several asked for your details I will definitely recommend you to all my friends. Thanks again.'
Annmarie Kiddle, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, Dan (Abelson) was a brilliant Knight and had the kids entertained the whole time. His energy and enthusiasm were second to none. We had many parents comment on how good he was! I hope he wasn't too worn out afterwards! So a resounding success and thank you so much. We will definitely pass on the word and may even contact you for future parties (I have a 2 year old daughter). Many thanks again.'
Joanna McCann, Highgate, London N6
'Dear Danny, Pirate Dan (Dan Abelson) was absolutely brilliant!!! We thought he was just fantastic. the kids were totally engaged and his energy and enthusiasm were infectious. We particularly loved the way he used imaginative play for the treasure hunt, really forcing the kids to use their imagination rather than watching passively, like so many other entertainers, we were really impressed. So many parents commented on how good he was and am sure you will get some work for future parties from them! Ruth was also great, loved her face painting and she was very patient.'
Laura and Luke, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, thank you so much - again! That was a truly awe inspiring creation - thank you for bringing Wizard Dee to life here. Everyone, regardless of age, enjoyed your character, stories and games - and we are so grateful. One thing that I became aware of was how you 'zone' the event, making it such a rich and textured two hours -that's a real skill. I was also amazed at how in-character you were. What a talent. We have a lovely recording of you asking "What are we here to do?" - a little girl replied "To have fun!". You delivered fun in spades! So thank you again and so, if we don't see you at one of our friends houses, can we book you for next year! I actually wish she was five more than once a year. Your extremely satisfied customers...'
Sophie and Mark Leach, Dulwich, London SE21
'Danny, Richard (Jackson) was fantastic as Pirate Dan! Some of the kids were a little reluctant at first but he totally managed to get everyone involved and joining in. I asked Imogen yesterday what her favourite part of her party was and she said (very emphatically) “Pirate Dan!”.
Sarah Hayes, Lewisham, London SE13
'Thanks Danny, I can confirm that a "good time was had by all" [for the Popstars Drama Workshop Party] judging by the comments in the playground this morning!! The parents couldn't believe that they managed to have a couple of hours to themselves while you kept the kids entertained. So a BIG thank you from both the kids and parents alike. Cheers'
Marion Cullen, Oakwood, Middlesex
'Danny- Graeme and Arthur had a great party [with Danijel The Space Warrior]. You managed to keep them entertained throughout – even without bribing them with sweets. A lot of the parents said just how good you were with them, so that is good publicity in itself for you. Many thanks.'
Ian Fitzsimmons, Hampstead, London NW3
'Thanks Danny, we are spreading the word like wild fire... the boys and parents absolutely loved it and we are all in awe as to how you retained their concentration for 2 hours!! You have a great skill. I will be in touch for Sammy's birthday in April. '
Nonie Bennett, Fulham, London SW6
'Hi Danny, a big thank you from us yet again, for a wonderful party, you did such a good job. Harvey loved it as did the rest of the kids AND the parents! I especially loved the bit at the end where they were charging back and forth and going 'ooh la la', I was in stitches!!Take care and I'm sure we'll come a knocking next year.'
Tess Marais, Beckenham, Kent
'Dear Danny, thanks so much for your 'Sergeant Dan' session for Louis's party, he really loved it. Georgia, his little sister, has repeatedly asked for 'targent Dan' for hers in January, so we'll see. We overheard one of Louis's friends saying to another "This is the best party ever!" as they were running around during your session, so all credit to you for holding a group of 2-6-year-olds busy, enraptured and enthusiastic for an hour. It made a huge difference to me as the organising mum, it meant I could get on with setting up the rest of the party knowing I didn't have to keep all the children happy and safe as well as masterminding the event.'
Alison Jones Moran, Sydenham, London SE26
'Have just come on-line to send you an email to say a HUGE thank you for yesterday. George (and Harry!) had a really wonderful time and I had lots of messages from parents to say how much their children enjoyed it too. You really were fabulous with all the kids and made the party so much easier than when we've struggled to do it ourselves! I am sure you will get some further bookings out of this one and I will always recommend you - it's great that you can be so versatile!'
Carolyn Edwards, Balham, London SW12
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for a fantastic afternoon. Everyone had a fab time with Pirate Dan, especially the birthday boy and his little brother. '
Lorna Davies, Ham, Surrey
'Danny, I just wanted to say a big thank you for entertaining Sophie and her friends. A couple of the adults commented that it was the most calm children’s party they’d been to – I don’t know how you manage to keep the attention of so many 4 year old's!! I will be recommending you to all our London friends.'
Jenny Mercer, Mortlake, London SW14
'Hi Danny, I wanted to write and thank you for putting on such an excellent show for Oscar's 4th birthday party today. Despite being rather shy at the start you drew Oscar out of his shell superbly [as Knight Daniel] and it really wasn't long before he was hunting down the magic sweets with everyone else and with the biggest smile on his face the whole time! Your energy and enthusiasm was second to none - we were all exhausted just watching! I'm so glad that we hired you and suspect we'll be back for second helpings in a year or so's time! We had lots of comments from the other parents who were also so impressed with your imagination, energy and passion to deliver a great adventure.'
Claire Lovell, Chiswick, London W4
'Hi Danny, Super Dan [played by Richard Jackson] was a big hit on Saturday and all the kids absolutely loved him. He had boundless enthusiasm and kept the children thoroughly entertained. Eli had a fantastic birthday and I will definitely be calling on you at around this time next year for a follow up performance. Many thanks to yourself and Richard.'
Joanne Wilson, Highgate, London
'Hi Danny, thanks very much for the party on Saturday, Johnny absolutely loved it. All the parents seemed to think it was great and one was amazed how you had kept her son's attention for 2 hours! I will of course recommend you and hope to see you again at one of the boy's parties in the future.'
Caroline Popham, Clapham, London SW4
'Thanks again for entertaining the kids. Josh really enjoyed his party and for me it felt really easy to manage as the kids were so well occupied. All I had to worry about was getting the food ready. A friend told me that her daughter talked for 45mins non stop when she got home about the entire adventure she'd just been on! Josh still thinks that Knight Daniel made his birthday cake though!!!!'
Naomi Thorley, Battersea, London SW11
'Hi Danny, the superhero party went down a storm with all the kids, and was the talk of nursery school today! Ned was thrilled with it so thank you for making his 4th birthday so memorable. All the parents were equally impressed so I hope it leads to some more bookings for you. I will leave some of your cards at school too and would highly recommend you to anyone else who asks! All good wishes.'
Sue Kearns, Blackheath, London SE3
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for being Super Dan at William's party on Saturday. He had a fantastic time and so did the other children. At school drop off this morning other parents were saying how much their kids said they enjoyed Super Dan and it was a nice change from a magic man entertainer. I will definitely recommend you to friends of mine.'
Emma Cleverly, Southfields, London SW18
'Hi Danny, just wanted to say that I thought Knight Daniel was absolutely brilliant at Zelie's 4th birthday party last Saturday. The children were completely engaged in the adventure story from the first moment they met you. Not one child wandered off or got bored (including the small group of seven year olds, who really threw themselves into it). They all cheered and yelled and sang the whole time. Even the parents loved it because it was funny too. It's a great feeling when you find an entertainer that can really entertain children. I wish you all the best for the future and I expect we'll be seeing you again given how impressed the other parents were. Thanks for making it a really great party.'
Emma Heard, Chiswick, London, W4
'Hi Danny, just to let you know that our Pirate Dan party on Saturday was brilliant! All the kids were enthralled and Emile had a party he will never forget - neither will I! Thanks, it was perfect.'
Shazia Hasan, Putney, London SW15
'Hi Danny, Lawrie had an amazing party on Saturday. Richard (Jackson) was great and had all the kids hooked from the start. Some of the mums were wondering if they could hire him full time as their little ones were doing everything they were asked to do! Very impressed and will recommend to others. No doubt be in touch for next years party. Thanks again.'
Ileana Tucker, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, KT2
'Thanks so much Danny, a truly wonderful day, it was amazing how you managed to keep all 30 children enthralled for the whole party, everyone has said what a great time they had. I will of course recommend you to friends and family'
Cathy Flanagan, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for entertaining all the children so wonderfully today. We were all so impressed with the way you kept them totally engaged in the treasure hunt and games. Sorry not to have seen you before you left but will be in touch at the end of the year to organise Harry's 7th birthday party!'
Michelle Clarke, Edenbridge, Kent TN8
'Hi Danny, just a quick line to say many thanks - Cameron (Jack) was absolutely fantastic. All kids had great fun and all the parents were very impressed. Some took your flyer and are likely to get in touch - so hopefully you get more business! All the best'
Svatava Sprague, West Norwood, London SE27
'Hi Danny, Just to say a huge thank you for today (family have just left my house, think they enjoyed it as much as the kids!) You really made Bertie's birthday (as Sergeant Dan) and are the talk of the town! Hope to see you again next year maybe as Danny Bond! Thanks again'
Nicola Foreman, Hove, West Sussex

All the kids had a wonderful time, and all the parents could relax. I was very pleased we found you!'
Mayuko Kataoka, Battersea, London SW11
'Hi Danny, Richard (Jackson) has certainly been a super hero on Saturday. He delivered exactly what we were expecting from him. He was professional and all the parents were impressed and most of all the children had such fun. We were impressed with his performance and ability to keep them focused, happy, and busy for one hour. It was raining a lot and he managed to entertain 24 children in a small space indoors, using all the space and the house is still intact!!! We have already spread the word and given your details to all the parents who asked for them. I have told them all it was from the East Dulwich Forum as well. It was worth every penny!!! It was definitely something different than just entertainers who provide musical statues, musical bumps, magic and pass the parcel!!! It was a real adventure for them. Harry had the best party. I will post my feed back on the website if it is feasible. Many many thanks to Richard and you Danny and we are looking forward to booking you for a girly princess or little fairies theme for our youngest girl next!!!'
San Chhea, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Dear Danny, thanks for making Matteo's party such a massive success. The children loved the fantastic adventure you took them on, the games you created to work with the weather captured them until the end. I would be delighted to recommend you every time, especially having seen you do the impossible in a rainstorm or two. Thanks so very much, you were just great.'
Michelle Shashoua, Kensington, London W8
'Danny, I wanted to let you know what a super party you did for Poppy and how pleased we were with how it ran! You can be sure that we will certainly be recommending Nutty's Children's Parties to anyone we can!'
Sarah Barton, Clapham, London SW4
'Hi Danny, thank you so much for a wonderful superhero party yesterday. Isabella and Alexander had a great time and so did the other 20 kids. You had the kids engaged the whole time. I can't believe you managed all those kids in our living space so well. Today at school I had lots of parents say to me how much their children enjoyed the party! Thanks again.'
Catherine Selwyn, Forest Hill, London SE23
'We really enjoyed Leila's princess party. Sophie (Carmichael) enthralled the girls with her exciting story. Thanks!'
Miranda Rosenthal, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Dear Danny, How could we possibly have had 30 children in the house without you!! You did a great job and the children had a great time. Everyone always says they love your down to earth style (not too much shouting and hysterics)- just charming and kind and funny. We like the fact you play the guitar rather than loud pumping music. Other comments were: "He is sensitive to the children's feelings", "You chose the right one!". Delphine and Angeline are now planning their next 10 years birthday parties with you. I think they want you to be a Wizard next time! We all enjoyed watching you and you could make a good parent entertainer too! Have a lovely summer. I shall recommend you to all I meet. Best wishes and thanks.'
Alexandra Swann, Fulham, London SW6
'Dear Danny, thank you very much for making Max's party so good. We were all very impressed by how the children were captivated for the entire duration......We will recommend you to our friends. Thanks and Best Wishes.'
Mary Foucher, Kennington, London SE17
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say that Princess Sophie (Carmichael) was absolutely brilliant at Rebecca's party yesterday afternoon. She had all the children hooked from the moment she started meeting and greeting each one individually and kept the adults entertained with her humour too. The children were totally caught up in their adventure and I've had lots of reports from parents of very excited children telling them all about it when they got home. Thank you so much, it was a brilliant way to spend a 5th birthday.'
Jo Jones, Epsom, Surrey
'Danny, we would all like to say a very big thank you for making the party such a wonderful one. You truly are marvellous. Freya has not stopped talking about Pirate Dan. I think she has told everyone she meets about him!! Also, all the other parents were so impressed and you will probably have a few more bookings. I will definitely recommend your company to all and sundry… Once again, thank you for being so wonderful.'
Tina King, West Norwood, London SE27
'Hi Danny, we were really pleased with Danzar the Human Monster! Thanks so much. I was worried that the large group would be a challenge and that it might have been particularly tricky with the different age groups involved, but everyone seemed to join in and really enjoy themselves. Thank you again'
Hannah Everett, Clapham, London
'Dear Danny, please pass on my thanks to Richard (Jackson) - he was fantastic. He did a great job, in quite tricky circumstances at times. A highlight was when one child pushed another child off the stage!… Richard handled everything brilliantly and the kids really got into it. I particularly enjoyed being a man eating shark! The parents who came were really impressed and I passed on your details to a gentleman who is planning his daughter's 7th birthday. Thanks again.'
Emma De Souza, Teddington, Surrey
'Hi Danny, Edward and Aron really enjoyed their party and as a result, so did we! I know we were really lucky with the weather but it was great to be able to be outside and we thought you judged everything really well. All of the children enjoyed themselves. We will certainly do our best to spread the word! Many thanks.'
Cathy Staveley, Putney, London SW15
'Dear Danny, many thanks, the boys had a great time and Richard (Jackson) as Detective Dan was wonderful. He really engaged the children and gave it his all! We and all the parents were very impressed by him! Once again many thanks and please thank Richard again as he was really very good.'
Tara Moss, Kensington, London W8
'Dear Danny, thank you so much for yesterday - it was another Nutty's Children's Party Spectacular! Tales of your amazing galactic adventures are already things of legend at Thorn Grove School. The children had a great time and the parents loved it too! So many Mum's asking where we found you.....expect a few more trips 'up North'! I wish I could manage 2 children half as well as you managed to captive 25!! I'm sure we'll see you again soon, as I know when I book you I don't have to worry about anything (except the hot dogs....and perhaps gaining entry to the party venue… lol).'
Susan and Ian Mair, Bishops Stortford, Herts CM23
'Dear Danny, thank you for yesterday. We were all really pleased with how it all went. You were really good with the children, and gave them a great fun party, and we were able to get on with getting the tea ready without having to think about them. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will certainly be recommending you, and I’m sure Alastair’s mum, Helen, is of the same mind. Thank you so much!'
Lorna Oswell, Tulse Hill, London SW2
'Hi Danny, thank you so much for entertaining the kids so expertly on Sunday. They were all enthralled by Submarine Dan, and I have been receiving so many positive comments from everyone who attended - kids and adults. I think they all left with lots of happy memories.'
Sue and Howard Kearns, Blackheath, London SE3
'Hi Danny, Thank you so much for yesterday. Wilfred loved it and so did all his guests. For a lot of them it was the first birthday party they have been to for their kid and you have set the bar very high for future parties!!! You are excellent at engaging with the kids and I have had lots of emails from the parents last night and today saying how superb they thought you were. Well done!'
Libby Pearson, Ealing, London W3
'Hi Danny, Richard (Jackson) was great. He kept 20 rampaging kids busy and entertained ! Steve and I thoroughly enjoyed the party and felt no stress, so that's a real testament to how well he did. Eva had a fab time.'
Claire and Steve Alderson, Streatham, London SW16
'It was super thanks Danny.. a ruddy triumph!'
Josie and Rob Da Bank, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Danny, thank you, Ishani (Basu) was terrific. The girls were entranced for the whole party, I had almost nothing to do! The adventure kept them busy before tea and then the games afterwards were fab. I couldn't believe it when I realised 2 hours had passed. Thanks a lot!'
Sarah Healey, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Danny, we were very happy with how the party went on Saturday. I've just asked Amy what her favourite part of the party was and she said the story. It's obviously stayed with her as I overheard her talking with her friends about it, a few days later, and she did the action for Stefan the Shark (hand on her head) and her friend Oliver said he was the octopus. She also now does a "thumbs down" and says "boo" when she sees a baddie on the TV or in a book. I was very impressed (and I know other parents were too) with how much you used the children's names. It made it so much more personal. I'd read the reviews on your website, so had high expectations, and you didn't disappoint. Thank you very much.'
Jenny Francis, Hither Green, London SE13
'He (Steven Tagg) was superb! Thanks a million'
Kate Thornton (via Twitter), Dulwich, London SE21
'Dear Danny, I wanted to write to say how utterly impressed we were with Richard (Jackson) as Knight Daniel. I was amazed at how he was able to engage so many little ones (at least 25!) for such a substantial period of time. I was also very grateful for his patience with us as we were running a bit late and I also really appreciated the fact that he changed his programme so that he occupied the children with games but waited for Noah, who was running really late for his own party before he started the actual storytelling and treasure hunt. This meant that the party had started and we didn't have any bored children (or parents!) but still Noah did not miss out on anything major. That was such a great stress reliever! Noah and his friends all had an amazing time and I've had several compliments for the 'great entertainment'. As my husband, who ordinarily does not give much critique, put it: 'Richard was bloody brilliant!!' So thank you so very, very much for allowing our knight to have a great party with your knight. We will definitely recommend you to all of my friends!'
Tania Baron, Dulwich, London SE21
'Hi Danny, Dan (Abelson as Pirate Dan) was fantastic, thank you!! All the kids had a ball. One of the mum's said afterwards that she was so impressed by how much fun they had with just their imaginations - no other props or gimmicks. So true and so good to see. Dan really held their attention for what is quite a while for kids of that age and we had a few adults captivated too! Dan handed out some flyers at the end so I'm sure you will get some enquiries when their birthdays come around. Thanks again!'
Edwina Kelly, Southfields, London SW18
'Hi Danny, thank you for the fabulous party yesterday, Josh was so thrilled and I’ve had great feedback from the other parents too. We were so impressed at how you held the kids’ (so many and so many different ages) attention for such a long time and how you managed to make it look so effortless!'
Justine Abbott, Shepherd's Bush, London W14
'Princess Ishani (Basu) was just great. We were very happy and Issy had a super birthday…The children loved her!…We will certainly recommend Nutty’s Children’s Parties. Many thanks.'
Sophie Quinlan, Battersea, London SW11
'Dear Danny, thank you for a wonderful party- Mermaid Ishani was perfect. She kept 16 kids entranced, was charming, funny and engaging and the children loved her! It was lovely to watch all the kids following her around Richmond Park and hanging off her every word!! All the adults were impressed with her Cornish accent and how she kept in character, to the point where some of the older children were asking "Will Mermaid Ishani be in the Thames now?" shortly after she left! She arrived early and used the park to its full potential… Mermaid Ishani was lovely with the young children, very patient and kind. I would definitely use your company again, Ishani was a very good ambassador for Nutty's! Thanks.'
Nicola Brooks, East Sheen, London SW14
'Hi Danny, for the second year running, Nutty's Parties did not disappoint! Max (Warrick) did a thoroughly entertaining job as Danijel the Space Warrior. He masterfully kept 20 children (with ages ranging from 4-8 years) enthralled for a whole hour. Even the onset of rain meaning we had to move the party and treasure from the garden into the house and then back again, was done seamlessly! I really hope that Emile has not grown out of these parties next year as I enjoy them as much as he does. Hope to see you again in 2013'
Shazia Hasan, Putney, London SW15
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was a huge success. He engaged all 22 children immediately and held their attention for the duration of the party. The games were original and the treasure hunt a real magical mystery tour. I noticed that all the parents enjoyed watching the show as well, as they were laughing throughout. Worth every penny- just perfect, thank you.'
Anna Wormald, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, thank you SO much! It was a fantastic party! The children LOVED it - and I have had endless emails from the mothers saying how much their sons LOVED LOVED it! For my part, it was the most relaxing birthday party that we have done so far! Really we loved everything about it - especially encouraging the children to really get on and use their imagination - and wonderful to see them getting really into it - and indeed starting to sink in the sand - and get eaten by sharks! I could not believe how involved they got in the story! Thank you!'
Katy De Laszlo, Fulham, London SW6
'Dear Danny, Richard (Jackson) was great (as Danijel The Space Warrior). He worked really hard to keep the children engaged and entertained. I hope he had a chance to recover!… The star dust did the magic and the kids left the party very happy. I have already 'spread the news' amongst the mums, who decided to stay and watch their children. I hope they will get in touch with you, when they start planning their children's parties. Thank you for all your help. Richard has made Josh's birthday a very special one, the one to remember.'
Gabby Wiktorzak, Kingston-Upon-Thames, Surrey KT1
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was great as Super Dan yesterday. He managed to keep most of the children enthralled for the whole hour and they loved it. Thankfully we were blessed with half decent weather so they were able to chase around outside for the time. The parents who stayed were also very impressed, so we’re happy to pass on your details to other parents about your entertainers.'
Charlotte Wyman, Battersea, London SW11
'Pirate Dan was wonderful, thank you very much Danny. The kids were obviously loving it: you did a great job of keeping their attention and getting them to run around, swept up in the story - which of course keeps all the grown ups happy too! Hope you also had a good time.'
Lucy Hammond-Giles, Kensington, London W14
'Hi Danny, thank you for providing the entertainment on Sunday. Sophie said she had a fantastic time and really enjoyed her party. One of her friends said it was the 'best party ever', so definitely a success. Thank you! We have passed on your flyers to the other parents and will definitely recommend you to our friends and family.'
Victoria Ridgewell, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Dear Danny, thank you very much for George's Pirate party on Sunday. He had a wonderful day and really enjoyed having Pirate Dan to visit. It was great for me too - I had been worrying how on earth I was going to keep 12 lively children (mainly boys) occupied, so I was very relieved when you said you were available to do the party! I am always impressed how you manage to keep the children's attention for so long - I can't normally get George to focus on anything for more than 5 minutes, but he was really involved in your story. I had a few texts from parents after the party saying how much their children had enjoyed it, so hopefully you might get some other bookings!'
Jane Toussaint, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Hi Danny, Fairy Emerald (Crankson) was magic, thanks. Hope she got back from the sticks ok. Everyone had a great time, especially small people, she's the talk of our household, all the parents were impressed, thank you ever so, do pass on our thanks.'
Claire Heald, Toys Hill, Kent TN16
'Danny, thanks so much For Oliver’s party – all the children had a fab time. His party was the talk of the playground on Monday morning! Will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a party entertainer. '
Emma Deville, Welling, DA16
'Hi Danny, thanks so much for Saturday, we were thrilled with Submarine Dan! The word is already spreading, the school playground yesterday was full of your praises and I've passed your details on to a few mums… By the way - the Submarine Dan song from your album is the song of the moment and we listen to it every mealtime!'
Becky and Giles Distin, Wandsworth, London SW17
'Dear Danny, we thought Sophie (Carmichael) was great - she turned up early and was incredibly helpful and accommodating… In terms of the party itself, she engaged the children very well and they all had a thoroughly good time. We would definitely recommend her (and you)!'
Anya Lewis, Brixton, London SW2
'Danny, Max (Warrick) was brilliant. Please pass on my thanks. Parents and children alike loved it and we passed on all the cards to prospective birthday party people!!'
Susan Hopkins, Herne Hill, London SE27
'Hi Danny, you were brilliant thank you. Hector had an absolutely amazing day and has been grinning ear to ear since… Thanks for putting so much into it and making it so memorable and special for Hector and his friends'
Pheadra Corrigan, Chiswick, London W6
'Hello Danny, our party was great. Sophie [Carmichael] was completely lovely from the moment she arrived through to saying goodbye. She kept all the children engaged and having a great time whilst very gently asking the adults to keep a little quieter to allow her to be heard. My daughter is still asking when Princess Sophie can come back and why we didn't invite her to her Daddy's 40th (which was this weekend!). Please pass on my thanks to Sophie and thank you for all your advice when I was planning the party. I would absolutely recommend you to anyone planning a child's party. Thanks.'
Zarina Lyner, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to give you some feedback about our party yesterday. Spencer (James) was brilliant. Highly professional and engaging. He had all the kids in the palm of his hand (and many of the parents too!) and gave a really intelligent and fun performance. My two LOVED the whole thing! Many thanks for your efficiency too. Many people asked about where Spencer was from so I am spreading the word!'
Virginia Craven, Sydenham, London SE26
'Hi, I just wanted to let you know how brilliant Cameron (Jack) was with the kids on Saturday…He was amazing with the shy ones and got everyone up and in the group. All the kids have said to their mums "we want a party like that". The games were played fairly and kindly and Mad Mike and Super Dan went down a storm. One of the kids was still asking his mum how "Super Dan had flown in through the window" as he was hiding in our spare room ready to spring out. All in all a brilliant time had by all…'
Rona Call, Crystal Palace, London SE19
'Hi Danny, I was so impressed and so happy with Cameron (Jack) as Pirate Dan yesterday. It was an absolute pleasure to have him there; he made the party what it was. Ava had a fantastic time, as did the other 20 children, and even the adults were entertained and didn't want to leave despite me telling them they could! I don't know where Cameron got his energy from, but it's a rare talent to be able to captivate, keep up with and hold the attention of 20+ 5/6 year olds for 2 hours, and it made my life so much easier knowing that he was there. So, all in all, it was hugely successful; all the parents were asking about you guys, the children had a blast and I'll be telling everyone I meet about you! Thanks so much to Cameron, and to you, and I'll be in touch same time next year; the only regret I have is that I hadn't discovered you sooner!!…Thanks for everything.Take care! '
Sorcha Holland, Greenwich, London SE10
'Hi Danny, Princess Sophie (Carmichael) was amazing… The children loved her and all the adults at the party thought she was brilliant. I will be using Nutty’s again and will 100% recommend you to friends and family. Please pass on our personal thanks to Sophie and let her know what a fantastic job she done. Many thanks.'
Stacey Ferraz, Bromley, Kent BR2
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was great -- he had a brilliant way with the children and was great at managing them and amusing them at the same time. I didn't have a chance to thank him before he left, so can you please pass my thanks on to him? The children all had a great time and Johnny had a fantastic birthday. Rousing success all round. Will come back to you next time we have a party!'
Ellen Purton, Twickenham TW1
'Dear Danny, I would just like to say thank you for an absolutely fantastic party. Max (Warrick) and Rick (Richard Jackson) worked so hard and kept the children entertained for the full 2 hours. They really captured everyone's imagination, parents included. I have never seen Charlie so engaged with a party. Lots of people took your details away with them and I will certainly recommend you. Please pass on my thanks to Max and Rick.'
Judith Pilcher, Wimbledon, London SW19
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was absolutely brilliant with the children, we were very pleased. The children were very happy and he got their attention full time. I will defintely spread the word and may rely on you again when my second son becomes 5!! Thank you for such a pleasant experience, warm wishes…'
Sophie Kelles, Tooting, London SW17
'Danny, please could you pass on our thanks to Richard (Jackson), who did a fantastic job at our son Benji's superhero birthday party on Saturday. He kept a group of very excitable 5 year old boys enthralled and really captured their imagination. Lots of parents said how impressed they were with him and I'll certainly pass on your details to anyone who asks! Please thank Richard for making Benji's birthday such a success.'
Tori Bryden, Sevenoaks, Kent TN13
'Hi Danny, huge thanks for an amazing afternoon thanks to you. What a brilliant space mission!! The children loved it so much. Alexander was thrilled. He even asked as we were driving home if you are coming again tomorrow. Thanks so much again and will be recommending you to friends. Hope you sleep well!!'
Helena Lee, Muswell Hill, London N10
'Excellent kids party entertainment today from @nuttyscparties thanks Space Cadet Danny (Danny Nutt)…If you want a great entertainer for your kids party, get this chap. He's brilliant'
Iain Lee (via Twitter), Muswell Hill, London N10
'Hi Danny, Richard (Jackson) was amazing! I can honestly say I've never seen a group of five year olds behave so well whilst having so much fun! They were just totally in his spell. I have had so many positive comments from other parents not only about how great he was and how much their kids enjoyed the party but that they are still all saying "we are all pirates today hey!" It really took all the stress out of the party because the kids were just having a brilliant time and so the parents were able to relax a bit too. I was particularly glad to let him ably handle the games as last year I got in to trouble with my son for who won and all those kinds of shinanigans. He managed to diffuse some parcel the parcel induced hysteria very well! So to summarise, a massive success for us, Lourenco had a fantastic time and so did all his friends and I feel it was money very well spent'
Ciara Fitzgerald-Graham, West Dulwich, London SE21
'Dear Danny, we were delighted with the party. Thank you very much. Jake thoroughly enjoyed himself and declared it to be ‘an excellent party’. I had some nice comments from parents too whose children had obviously fed back good things. As far as we were concerned it was great to be able to let someone else do a great job of entertaining the children and keeping them enthralled for all that time, meaning that we got to enjoy ourselves too. I hope you managed to get a good rest on Sunday evening? Thanks again for the brilliant entertainment and I hope we get to use you again.'
Melanie Dunn, Ahstead, Surrey, KT21
'Hi Danny, thank you so much for Calebs party. He absolutely loved it and so did his friends. A lot of the parents commented on how original the style and format of the party was. You also did very well to cope with the number of boys, so thank you. We would definitely love to use you again in the future. Thanks again.'
Ali Trickett, Chiswick, London W4
'Hi Danny, all went well - Bob (Nicholson) went down a storm. Apparently the grown ups thought he was very humorous and most of the kids were kept engaged. My little boy was a bit overwhelmed and was found upstairs in his bedroom ... bless... but yes, many thanks - we'll be sure to recommend!'
Marie Allan- Burton, Whitley Bay, Tyne & Wear NE26
'Hi Danny, Dan (Slade) was brilliant. The children were enthralled and wholeheartedly joined in. Henry says he was great because he did, 'a really good adventure'.'
Hannah Wilson, Blackheath, London SE3
'Hi Danny, Dan Abelson (as Knight Daniel) was absolutely brilliant, we were so pleased with Sophie's party! The birthday girl herself was a bit reluctant, but Dan dealt very well with that and had the full attention of almost all the children for the whole adventure story. Amazing considering the oldest one was five!... Thank you so much for creating such original party ideas - many parents commented on how different and enjoyable it was.'
Izzy Burton, Chessington, Surrey KT9
'Dear Danny, the party on Saturday was a huge success and the quality of entertainment brilliant. Your use of original storytelling material to engage 30 kids for over an hour is amazing, and I feel as a parent quite proud to put on a party of such high quality/ intelligent entertainment. Also, many other parents at the party were very impressed and I hope that they will be using you themselves. Thanks a million again. I felt very confident to use you a second time this year and will be likely to contact you again next year. Thanks Danny. It would not be anywhere near the same without you. '
Jelena McMennemin, Shepherd's Bush, London W12
'Dear Danny, we were very pleased with Mike (Sengelow). He did a fantastic job and the children enjoyed it very much! Some children said it was the best party they've ever been to! So, well done! And thank you very much indeed. It was great to see the children had so much fun and for me it was a great help to organise a party with 17 children. I've also got positive feedback from all the parents who stayed for the party... Thank you very much indeed again. I'll warmly recommend Nutty's Children's Parties.'
Sylvia Kaiser, Twickenham, TW1
'Emerald (Crankson)! Thank you much for being the most wonderful Fairy for Willow on Saturday. You've been the talk of the school. You were so captivating, the girls loved you so much. Thank you and we wish you the very best with your career.'
Kelly Messias Ballance, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9
'Hi Danny, Lara and her friends had a lovely time with Sophie (Carmichael). Both her and Lianne last year were wonderful....The girls were absolutely mesmerised with Sophie and many of the parents commented that it was the first time they actually actively participated in a birthday party. We will be back next year!'
Marta Srnic (repeat client), Sevenoaks, Kent TN13
'Dear Danny, thank you sooo much for such a wonderful performance (as Space Cadet Danny) ! Daniel loved his party massively (though admitted it only after a two hour snooze) as did his friends and their parents. The theme was executed nicely and blended well with the venue - perfect combination for a successful party. You managed to keep the kids entertained for two hours without them losing interest or wondering off. Many of them commented what a great time they had had. You have a great voice, great talent and great ideas! We are wishing you only the best in developing it even further. The word about Nutty's Parties has been spread! Hope to see you again some time in the future, many many many thanks.'
Anna Streltsova, Ealing, London W3
'Hi Danny, thank you for a very successful party. Max (Warrick) deftly held the children captivated for the full hour with the story and music of Knight Daniel's adventure. The birthday girl has been talking about the search for the princess ever since. Many thanks for taking the pressure off us for the bulk of the party!'
Sarah Avery, Fulham, London SW6
'Princess Sophie, I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to say goodbye properly on Sunday... I can't thank you enough for the amazing job you did. The kids were completely absorbed and had a great time and you gave Phoebe a truly magical birthday. Thank you thank you thank you. All the other mums were very impressed by you too!'
Naomi Wattis, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Dear Danny, I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with Pirate Sophie at my daughter's party today! She was really good, turned up nice and early, was brilliant with the children and totally engaged them in the pirate adventure. The children were aged 2-8, mostly 3 and 5, and we were very impressed with how she kept them all entertained, and they loved being able to continue the adventure in the garden, pretending to be sharks, cross bridges etc. Unfortunately my daughter Marianne who's 3 and whose party it was had been ill all last week with a chesty bug, so she was still a bit under the weather and took a while to join it. But Sophie was very careful, we thought, to keep including her and asking if she wanted to do things first (which of course she did when it came to opening the treasure box and taking a sweet!). Alessandra, the face painter was also very good and people commented on how quickly she worked but also on how good the face painting was. We had her at my other daughter's party 2 years ago and it was great to see her again. Thank you again to Pirate Sophie for a fab party.'
Eleanor Tollfree, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Dear Danny, thank you so much, yet again, for the party on Saturday. All the kids seemed wild with excitement at the end, which is surely the point of a party for a six year old. Thank you also for your kind care of the little boy with special needs and your willingness to put up with the smell of feet that pervaded the hall! Also thank you for the Nutty's CD, which is much appreciated and is currently being played on a loop (hmmm...) ! We will, no doubt, see you again next year.'
Augusta Annesley (repeat client), Teddington TW11
'Hi Danny, Emerald (Cranskon) was great and kept all the kids hooked for the full hour. They had a wonderful time. Many thanks.'
Tamsin Kitson, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, we were extremely pleased with Mike (Sengelow) at our party on Sunday, he did an absolutely brilliant job. His energy and enthusiasm kept the kids entertained and even made the adults smile. He helped the afternoon flow very smoothly, even carrying out George's pirate birthday cake so we could have photos with the birthday boy and leading the singing and hip hoorays! George loved it and had great fun. Several of our party guests asked about Mike and I gave out the leaflets he left, so I hope some of them follow up with you, I wouldn't hesitate to use you guys again or recommend your services. Thank you so much'
Jo Clays, Balham, London SW12
'Dear Danny, we were delighted with Max (Warrick) as Pirate Dan on Saturday- he was extremely professional and held the children in the palm of his hand, even the most unruly ones...He led the children on a fun adventure, and took the pressure off us, for sure. We would definitely re-book, and will recommend Nutty's Children's Parties to all our friends.'
Eve Lambah, Crystal Palace, London SE19
'Thanks for your email. I just want to say a huge thank you to Knight Emerald! She was absolutely wonderful! She had a lovely, soft, approachable personality which was ideal for the 3 and 4 years at the party, yet she kept them engaged and happy throughout the adventure story. The kids were inside and outside and inside and outside and inside! She adapted to our home and garden wonderfully and was clearly used to pulling off a Topnotch performance! She had the children shouting on cue, playing games and looking for treasure. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for making Oliver's 4 birthday such a memorable and entertaining one.'
Emma Berridge, Epsom, Surrey KT13
'Hi Danny, I l just wanted to say how pleased we were with Max’s performance on Saturday. The children were all totally enthralled by the adventure from the beginning to the very end and the grown-ups were very impressed with the quality of the show. We found the material very clever, original and efficient, appealing to all, girls and boys, from the youngest kids to the oldest. Max’s interpretation was excellent: funny and energetic. He also helped me out gathering the kids around the cake and with the singing, which was appreciated. He is very talented, has a professional mind-set and is a lovely guy too. Pirate Dan is what made our party special so we will definitely recommend your services to others.'
Fabrice Durand, Bermondsey, London SE1
'Hi Danny, many thanks for everything, we thought you were brilliant as Pirate Dan and really made Noah's 4th birthday party a special event. He had a wonderful time and all the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a treat to see all our little pirates and princesses having such an exciting, fantastic time and Noah is still talking about his party now. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who was considering booking you. '
Simon Briggs, West Dulwich, London SE21
'Joel (Phillimore) was excellent as Pirate Dan. Our son is quite shy and Joel handled him perfectly, after about 15 minutes Ben was shouting out and going to the front, he loved it. All the kids were completely under Joel's spell for the whole 2 hours and every single parent commented on how amazing he was. I would recommend Joel and Nutty's Parties to anyone with complete confidence.'
Laura French, Wanstead, London E11
'Hi there, just to let you know that Grace had a fantastic disco party on Sunday. Oli (Jackson) was brilliant and kept 28 children very well entertained ! We will definitely be using you again. Thank you very much.'
Lorna Scott, Tatsfield, Kent TN16
'Hi Sophie and Danny, once again Nutty's Children's Parties put on a brilliant (Doctor Who Drama Workshop) party for our son Oliver. The children had a super time and we received lots of complements afterwards from the kids and parents too. The party was a roaring success and was a great way to celebrate Oliver's 9th birthday with his new school friends (just started his new school in September) and with his old friends. Even those who were not into 'drama' really enjoyed the experience - they had lots of fun. We could not fault Cameron (Jack), 10 out of 10. He was very polite, courteous, charming and very hard working. He was super with the kids and a joy to work with. I wish there were more Cameron's in the world! Thank you again for a super party.'
Lindsey & David Poyser, Dorking, Surrey RH4
'Danny, Cameron (Jack) was Pirate Dan for my son's 5th birthday party in Teddington last Saturday. I would like to pass on what a fantastic job he did; really making it a very special birthday. His enthusiasm and energy was amazing, meaning he was able to maintain the attention and interest of 25 children (and their parents!) for the whole party. Other parents are still talking about it, and we are delighted with how it turned out.'
Robert Hupe and Susie Hall, Teddington TW11
'Hi Danny, the party went brilliantly, thanks, and the kids and parents were really impressed with Sergeant Dan! Richard (Jackson) worked really hard to engage everyone, and made excellent use of the space. I was astounded the kids were able to spend so much time outdoors (given the January ground frost) and hope Richard eventually warmed up again after his endeavours! '
Viki Sullivan, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9
'Hi Danny, just a quick note to say how impressed we were with Cameron (Jack) on Saturday….he was absolutely brilliant and really exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of the acting/storytelling, along with a professional, energised performance for a demanding audience!'
Jason Van-Haeften, Twickenham TW1
'Thanks to both Max and Sophie for an excellent party on Saturday. They managed to contain, control, entertain and tire out over 40 children against the odds of poor acoustics and noisy parents chatting. The girls had a fantastic time and I received lots of compliments on the entertainers. I will definitely be looking to repeat the arrangements for next year’s 5th birthday party (and I have of course told everyone about Nutty’s Parties).'
Natasha Newbold, West Norwood, London SE27
'Hi Danny, we were very pleased with Dan Slade (as Space Cadet Danny). He held a boisterous audience of 30 four and five year olds rapt with attention. Comments from other parents were equally favourable. The content of the show was great and brilliantly tailored to the crowd. I can't praise Dan highly enough for putting his all into the show - plus he was a pleasure to deal with.'
Roland Moore, Redhill, Surrey RH1
'Dear Danny, thank you so so much for Saturday, it all went brilliantly and everyone thought you were fantastic... Some of my friends were saying before the party they hoped it was the same entertainer as last year! I think it's amazing how you can keep the interest of 30 children for that long! The children all loved it and lots of friends said they would want to book you for their party too! Thanks again Danny, I'm your biggest fan!!'
Jane Cameron (repeat client), Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hello, the party was great and Dan (Abelson) was just brilliant. So many people commented on how fantastic he was and one parent passing in the park even came over to get a flyer because the kids were having so much fun. He kept them engaged and entertained for the whole hour and the parents who stayed loved watching too. Thanks again - I was extremely glad not to have to entertain 15 four year olds for an hour!'
Emily Watson- Howes, Crouch End, London N8
'Danny, thank you very much for a fantastic 5th party for Michael and for brilliantly including his brother Rory in the festivities. Danijel The Space Warrior was as good as I remembered him and I have had excellent feedback from all the parents who hung around for the party... So I expect you will be back to Kew before long! Many thanks again!'
Kate Bradley, Kew, Richmond TW9
'Max/Pirate Dan was marvellous – from the moment he arrived he was in charge of the increasing collection of children. All the parents were marvelling at how he kept them in order even the ones who, to be honest, have a tendency to not join in or just cause mischief! I honestly believe he has super powers! This is the 2nd time I have used someone from Nutty’sand it most certainly will not be the last though I am happy I don’t have to think about birthday parties for a very long time. Thank you.'
Polly Mackay (repeat client), Clapham, London SW4
'Hi Danny, I would like to thank Bob (Nicholson) and Caroline (Liversidge) for their hard work this weekend at my Son's 5th Birthday party. Adam and his 45 friends had a fantastic time. Since the party we have received a large number of text messages and calls from parents congratulating us on an amazing party, so please pass on my thanks.'
Malcolm Hollinshead, Cramlington, Tyne & Wear NE23
'Many thanks for the wonderful entertainment at my daughter's 5th birthday party last week. She felt like a princess all day and had a ball!'
Cathy Graham, Ealing, London W13
'Danny, you were brilliant. You rocked the mojo Super Dan. The kids loved it!'
Kerry Godliman, West Norwood, London SE27
'Dear Danny, Chris Pizzey was great (as Sergeant Dan) ! A lot of the parents thought so too and the boys even more!! I think that now I need to buy some combats and a whistle! Thanks so much for the smooth organisation and also adapting for the tug of war which was super popular.'

'Hi Danny, please pass on a massive thank you to Max, Sophie and Alessandra. The party was a huge success and Lola and Maisie are now the envy of all their friends. Max and Sophie kept over 30 kids entertained for two whole hours and Alessandra's face painting was fabulous – even some of the mum and dads left with eye patches, scars and skull and cross bones (me included)! I have had so many compliments about the quality of the entertainment and many of the parents have said they will be in touch. I would recommend your company to anyone having a kids party that wants to ensure the children have a wonderful time and thanks to Max, Sophie and Alessandra, we were able to relax and enjoy our happy kids. Now to plan a theme for next year!'
Emma and Leyton Ede, Bromley BR1
'Hello Danny, Christopher and twenty odd of his little friends had the best time with Pirate Dan on Sunday. The story, the activity and Bob (Nicholson) himself were all absolutely spot on, and Christopher was enthralled throughout by the whole thing. Since the party many of the parents have mailed and texted to say how much their children enjoyed it, and I think quite a few of your leaflets went in the course of the afternoon. Bob himself was totally professional – with the phone call on the previous Thursday, prompt in arriving on the Sunday, and in working so admirably well with the children. As I said to him afterwards, no-one could pay me enough to do his job, but he was obviously enjoying himself and that communicated to the children. We would be happy to recommend your Nutty's Children’s Parties to anyone wanting an active, imaginative and thoroughly professional service. With every good wish and thanks again.'
John and Helen Pearce, Monkseaton, Tyne and Wear NE25
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say a very big thank you to you and Max (Warrick) for the lovely entertainment. Nima and his friends had a fabulous time, fully engaged and entertained. They all believed Wizard Dee and I suppose nowadays it's not an easy task to do. All the parents were impressed too, they all wanted to watch Wizard Dee!!! Thank you again.'
Tanaz Assefi, Woolwich, London SE18
'Hi Danny, Joel (Phillimore) and Chris (Pizzey) were AMAZING, thank you so much for organising. Jack absolutely loved every minute, as did all his friends. They really were brilliant - so much energy for a Sunday morning! I will be singing your praises to everyone. Thanks again and no doubt I will be back in touch for future birthday parties (we have 3 children!).'
Arlette Weatherall (repeat client), East Dulwich, London SE22
'Danny, Max (Warrick) is a credit to your company. He was amazing- the kids all loved him. He kept them engaged and entertained. A few of the Mums already have been asking for details - all given the cards etc in the party bags. Thank you so much - and thank Max again for me- he was excellent.'
Emily Kanauros, Chislehurst, Kent BR7
'Hi Danny, I've been meaning to get in touch with you to say thank you to Richard (Jackson) for the amazing job he did at our wedding as Detective Dan! Obviously I didn't see too much of him in action - but the fact that I hardly saw any of the children either meant I knew the children were very happy - and now that I have seen some of the pictures, I can see what a great time they had! He had such energy and infectious vitality, he clearly totally captured the children's imaginations. He worked really hard and I felt confident from the outset with the clear communications both from yourself and with Richard on the phone that the day would go well and I'd like you to know that Detective Dan exceeded my expectation. Thanks again - I will have no hesitation in recommending you and your team.'
Kathryn Phalp, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Danny, thank you so much for the most amazing party on Saturday. All the children were totally engrossed from start to finish and you made it look so easy!!! Freddie got totally spoilt for his birthday but whenever anyone asks him which his favourite bit was he says 'Explorer Dan's adventure' without hesitating. All the parents were thoroughly impressed and I have no doubt will be booking Nutty's Children's Parties in the future. Thank you again from all of us.'
Zaila Dunbar, Holland Park, London W11
'Danny, a big thank you to Jack (Vine) for a totally brilliant performance - he was amazing. All the kids had a ball - they loved him. He was extremely professional and helpful, making sure the party was a complete success. We were very impressed and if you're looking for someone to entertain your kids - you don't need to look any further.'
Rebecca James, Hampton, Middlesex TW12
'Hi Danny, we had a superb party on Sunday, thanks. Simon (Coleman) was fantastic - really kept the kids' attention throughout (no mean feat with about 15 lively 6 year olds and a fairly small garden!). There were also a couple of younger siblings there and he was really good at getting them involved too. Tristan was delighted to have had a "real Super Hero" at his party!'
Alison Briggs, Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, we were very happy with Max (Warrick) - he was on time and friendly and great with the kids - exactly what we wanted.'
Caroline Kamp, Reigate, Surrey RH2
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say that Chris (Pizzey) was great today for Benjamin and all his friends at his birthday party ! They all thoroughly enjoyed it and he kept everyone very entertained! I will definitely recommend you to friends.'
Sarah England-Smith, Sanderstead, Surrey
'Hi Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was brilliant (with the Drama Workshop Party) and all the girls loved it. I was worried that the birthday girl was slightly over excited, but Emerald handled her and her mates fantastically and put a great show together at the end which both the children and parents really enjoyed!'
Pete Lambrou, Twickenham TW2
'Dear Danny and Company, we were all so very pleased with how the party went on Sunday. Please give (another) big thank you to Max (Warrick) who was just great. We had at least 25 four year olds who were all over the place before he arrived. He managed to draw them in, make them laugh and have great fun following his pirate treasure trail. Again, thanks, and we shall indeed be passing on your details.'
Sonia and Colin Butler, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, the party was a huge success again. The kids were captivated and Richard (Jackson) really got into character. The parents recognised him from last year and commented on his engagement with the children. Really really pleased with how it went and of course the rain stayed away for us. We loved the creativity of the adventure - Richard managed the 19 children really well. My youngest is pondering her party now for next April! Wishing you continued success'
Carolyn Warren (repeat client), East Malling, Kent ME19
'Hi Danny, it was fantastic thank you. I asked Maria what her favourite part of the party was when I put her to bed and she replied: opening the spellbound door, finding the treasure box and having the sweetie. That's what you, well, plus Joel (Phillimore) and I, did it for!! Thank you ever so much.'
Marceline Suijs, Walton-On-Thames, Surrey KT12
'Hi Danny, the children loved Max (Warrick) as Pirate Dan yesterday. And their parents too. Several of them took the flyers he left afterwards. I hope that it will bring you more clients. Honestly, Max was absolutely brilliant! Thank you very much indeed.'
Anne-Lise Bagur, Clapham, London SW11
'Dear Danny, we couldn't have been happier with Max (Warrick) as party entertainer for the boys' birthday party....he managed to get us to face the reality of the rain that was forecast, meaning we couldn't have it outside as planned. It did mean that 26 four year olds were crammed into our little living area, with no room for any of their parents (eek!). Max managed to keep them active and engaged for the whole two hours, which they really enjoyed. There were hardly any tears (many had not been left on their own at a party before) and no bad behaviour and they all really really loved it. Pirate Dan rules! We would not hesitate to recommend a Pirate Dan party, even in rain in a smallish house! It was worth every penny....
Let me echo Jane in saying that Max was brilliant and was one of the key reasons why the party was such a success. I too would not hesitate to recommend a Pirate Dan paRRRRRRRRRty.'
Jane Lewington and Karla Adam, Battersea, London SW11
'Hi Danny, Ella had an amazing party, Amy (Leighton) was brilliant (with the Drama Workshop Party). She handled all the demanding 8 year olds well. They all loved it and to my amazement all stayed focus all the way through. They loved doing the show and practising it. So thank you , very successful. All the parents were amazed at what they put together and loved watching the show.'
Rebecca de Boehmler (repeat client), Balham, London SW12
'Thanks Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was great! I think I only saw 1 child start to slope off right at the end of the party, which is very good going! A lot of the little girls went up to Amelia at the end and told her it was a brilliant party so she was very pleased! I shall be in touch when my little boy is bigger for a Pirate Dan party!'
Susan Cooney, Rickmansworth, Herts WD3
'Thanks Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was excellent, we couldn't believe how she kept the children so enthralled, like a modern day Pied Piper!!! She gave us a slight panic when she missed her train but thankfully made it on time and was very professional. Many thanks'
Claire Turner, South Nutfield, Surrey RH1
'Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was fantastic and the kids obviously really enjoyed the 'show'! From the parents perspective, Jack was really personable and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Nutty's in the future. Thanks for being so accommodating. You've really made the daunting process of organising a five year olds birthday so much easier.'
Kelly O' Sullivan, West Norwood, London SE27
'Hi Danny, Hugo had a fantastic time and so did all his friends (and their parents!). Everybody was incredibly impressed and complementary about Pirate Dan, which was especially satisfying for Miriam and I as we felt a lot of pressure to host a fun party that everyone would enjoy. Thank you very much for making it so special, you really worked hard (although you certainly made it look very easy!) and I cannot say emphatically enough how grateful we all are to you. You really are talented. I will certainly recommend you and happily pass around your details.'
Ben Evans, Ascot, Berkshire SL5
'Thanks Danny, really pleased with Chris (Pizzey) – had about 25 kids captivated despite a lot of distractions. This is our third Nutty's adventure party including our friends’ party that introduced us to Max – the standard is consistently high which takes stress out of the party! Please pass our thanks on to Chris, much appreciated.'
Neal Fetterman, Ealing, London W13
'Hi Danny, Chris (Pizzey) was fantastic. The Kids and the adults absolutely loved him. He kept them all very busy. Many thanks!'
Dale, Westbourne Park, London NW10
'Thank you very much for wonderful support with the party last weekend. The Princess and Knight (played by Emerald Crankson and Dan Abelson) were very good and the kids had a great time. Thank you again and I will definitely recommend you to friends!'
Holly Duncan, Chiswick, London W4
'Hi Danny, we were delighted with Richard (Jackson) as Pirate Dan & The Dinosaur Adventure. He surpassed our expectations and I've had some wonderful comments back from the children and other parents. My son Harrison had a fantastic time and loved every moment of the party. I was particularly delighted that Richard was able to engage all the children. In general, there are always parties where some kids find it difficult to engage, can get quite upset with the noise, activities and so on. I'm delighted to say that all the children were happy and engaged - Richard was absolutely brilliant! I found him to be very professional and an exceptional entertainer and pirate! A big thank you and well done to you both. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Nutty's to other parents. Please do send Richard my feedback and our very best wishes and thanks.'
Rosemary Lewis, Leighton Buzzard, LU7, Bedfordshire
'Hi Danny, pleased isn't the word! Chris Pizzey (Super Dan) was amazing, he captured the imagination of 19 children for two hours and they loved every second of it. Zak and I spent Sunday morning looking at your website so he can figure out which character he would like to come to his party next year! It shows that children don't need gadgets and props, just somebody clever enough to tap into their imaginations. Several parents have asked me for your details so I'm sure you'll be visiting Henley a lot over the next year! Thanks again!'
Ginny Buckley, Henley-On-Thames RG9
'Hi Danny, just to say that Jack (Vine, aka Super Dan) was brilliant today. The kids loved him! We did too, really good guy. I will definitely recommend him/you to others...lots of the mums wanted the details. Thanks again.'
Lisa Bain, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, I just wanted to say that Dan (Abelson) was great at Thomas’ party. He held the kids attention for the full hour and they seemed to love him. He has that gift of being able to get kids to listen to him and join in which is quite rare I think! It was great to have something that went with the theme rather than a generic magician etc and means we could use you guys again with a different theme. Loads of the parents commented on how good he was. I was a little worried beforehand as you never know what you’re going to get when booking something from an advert but it was really great and I would definitely recommend to others.'
Sarah Grehan, Charlton, London SE7
'Danny, the party was a great success. My daughter and the other girls loved Princess Amy (Leighton) and really enjoyed the story and games. The other Mums loved the idea. Thanks again, and we may well be in touch next year. '
Amy Brocklehurst, East Dulwich, London SE22
'Just want to thank all the children that came to our Spooky Disco's & to @nuttyscparties for doing a fantastic job entertaining all the kids'
Clare House Primary School PTA (via Twitter), Beckenham, Kent BR3
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) was fantastic as 'Pirate Dan' for Valentina's party. I was a little sceptical as to whether a group of 3 year olds would pay attention to the entertainment for more that 10 minutes, however, Max did an amazing job of keeping them all under control and excited/involved! All the parents were very impressed and also loved it! One of the little boys told me as he was leaving that 'this party was lots of fun!'....so that says it all I think!! Many many thanks...I will certainly be booking Nutty's Parties again next year!'
Kirsty Lansdown, Fulham, London SW6
'Dear Danny, just a quick line to let you know how the party went on Saturday. Ishani (Basu) was great and did the whole thing really well. She had a big challenge in that the space has a very echoey acoustic and there were the inevitable couple of kids who wouldn't tow the line and created quite a bit of disruption. She handled it all brilliantly though. The show was great and the story you had put together worked well. Florence had a great time! Anyway, please pass on my thanks again to Ishani.'
Virginia Craven (repeat client), Sydenham, London SE26
'Hi Danny, we were very pleased with Sam (O'Hanlon). Please thank him for us. The children all seemed to really enjoy the treasure hunt and several of the parents asked me where I had found him!'
Ann-Marie Kelly, Orpington, Kent BR6
'Danny, just wanted to say a huge thank you for sending Knight Daniel (played by Dan Abelson) to us for Samuel's party. We had an amazing time and Knight Daniel was fabulous. All the children were utterly engrossed in his story and games, they absolutely loved him. I cannot quite believe that he kept them so entertained for such a long time!! Very talented and great fun. He also managed the age range really well (we had a few older siblings) and I now have his older brother requesting a Nutty's Party. Cannot recommend you highly enough. Thanks again.'
Kate Neville, Tunbridge Wells, Kent TN3
'Hello Danny, Emerald (Crankson) was EXCELLENT. She really was able to keep all the children entertained for the whole time and they loved every minute of it! It made our lives a lot easier and meant that Dorothy had a really special day for her 5th birthday party.'
Dina Green, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) did a brilliant job and kept over twenty 4 and 5 year olds happy and engaged throughout! He was also prompt, helpful and polite - in fact the whole service was simple and efficient. I would definitely recommend Jack and the company.'
Merry Varney, Herne Hill, London SE24
'Hi Danny, it was fantastic, thanks. And thanks to Jack (Vine) for making it on time even with the train cancellations! The children (and adults) all loved it. And my son keeps asking after 'Pirate Dan' so he definitely made a good impression. Will definitely recommend to friends! Thanks again.'
Jodie Cawte, Charlton, London SE7
'Hi Danny, just a quick thanks for sending Pirate Dan (played by Bob Nicholson) to Stella's party! He managed to hold their attention really well and quite a few parents were impressed and asked for your card. He didn't even complain when I forgot to bring the money and had to drive him all over to get it! Will definitely consider you again in the future.'
Clare Ford, Sunderland, SR7
'Hi Danny, Max (Warrick) did a brilliant job, we were delighted and the party went really well. Many thanks.'
Jo Flynn, Sydenham, London SE26
'Hi Danny, we were absolutely delighted with the Disco party. It was great to have such high quality entertainment. I have had so many positive comments from parents of children of all ages across the school. Lots of children, especially the little ones, can struggle with these kind of events...too noisy, too dark, too wild, so it was great to have structured activities for the kids to participate in which included everyone. Lovely to see parents up and dancing too. We can't wait to have you back! Thanks so much again.'
Hazel Gould (PTA member for school disco at Harris Academy Primary School), Tottenham, London N15
'Max (Warrick) was wonderful. The kids had a fantastic time and we were very pleased. I am sure you may get a lot of bookings next year as the parents also loved him. Many thanks.'
Karen To, Tooting, London SW17
'Hi Danny, thanks for putting on a great year of entertainment for the kids at High Road House!'
Ailsa Kerr, Head of Events, Soho House Group
'Hi Danny, Amy (Leighton) came on time for the party and she was fantastic with the children. My daughter had so much fun and she loved Amy. Even the parents who came to the party said that Amy was very good with the kids and they were kept fully engaged and occupied. Thank you for making my daughter's party a lovely and memorable day.'
Manjula Raajkumar, Hornchurch, Essex RM11
'Hi Danny, the party was great. Rufus woke up on Sunday morning and his first words were "my party was awesome" so I'd say that's good feedback. Max (Warrick) was great. We had one child who was a bit of a ......... and a bit rude. It's a skill to discipline other people's children in that sort of situation but he managed it really well! The pirate accent was also great. My husband said "that's great he's from the West Country, made him sound like a real pirate". Should I break it to him that he was only pretending? Thanks again for arranging it at such short notice.'
Julia Boddy (repeat client), East Dulwich, London SE22
'Hi Danny, Jack (Vine) was fantastic on Sunday. He arrived in plenty of time and gave us plenty of info about what to expect. The children had a fabulous time. They were fully engaged from start to finish. I will definitely be spreading the word, thanks so much.'
Caroline Hullah, Westerham, Kent TN16
'Hi Danny, please pass on our thanks to Jack (Vine). Bertie's party was totally brilliant and he said he had the best party ever. Jack had the kids eating out of his hand and had them all really engaged. Lots of fun and games. A good mix of sporting and more traditional to suit everyone. He really adapted to the additional fairy theme too and it was much appreciated as I know it was a bit of a tricky request. Myself and all the parents thought he was just brilliant - bags of enthusiasm, energy and very professional but lots of fun. He was defintely worth booking the extra hour too. Thanks so much - glad that is sorted and one happy little boy for another year!'
Nicki Bamford-Bowes, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Hi Danny, just to say Trev (Ellis- Jones) was brilliant today. The kids all had an excellent time (with the Disco party) - lots and lots of dancing and no tears!!! Will definitely be recommending you and Trev!'
Nic Alderson, Forest Hill, London SE23
'Hi Danny, Trev (Ellis-Jones) was fantastic, thanks very much! Theo completely got into the groove (with the Disco) and I think it went off with a bang! Very many thanks again and best wishes.'
Susannah Woodgate, Hammersmith, London W12
'Hi there, I would just like to thank Jack (Vine)- as Super Dan- for today! He was amazing how he kept such young kids' attentions on an adventure for an hour! Very impressive. It was all a bit overwhelming for me as the host as when they are so young, all the parents stay! I just wanted to say thanks to Jack for being so fantastic with them all.'
Danielle Quinn, Lewisham, London SE13
'Hi Danny, please would you pass on our thanks again to Sam (O'Hanlon) for doing an awesome job on Saturday. He held the attention of approx. twenty five 4-year olds for a full hour which in my book is something of a miracle!'
Steph Hill, Teddington TW11
