Why do I enjoy doing Children’s parties? By Laura-Jayne
“Find a job you love, and you’ll never have to work a day.” One of my favourite quotes, and I guess a rather bold statement! No job is without its difficulties and stress from time to time, but I’m extremely fortunate to be a part of a company that allows me to work and find so much reward in doing so. For around 4 and a half years now, I have sung, danced and dressed up in some crazy costumes for countless children’s birthday celebrations. In my time doing so, I’ve learnt so many lessons about entertaining, and generally working in such a fast paced, unpredictable industry. I’m currently training in Musical Theatre, with the aim of attending Drama School in the near future, so I couldn’t really wish for a better way to build these skills around everything else I’m currently involved in.

Bringing Characters to life: ‘Descendants’
Possibly one of my favourite aspects of this job is the creativity that fuels it – with each character or theme comes new games, activities, and new costumes/wigs/make-up to explore!

We hear from Absolutely Amazing Parties entertainer Laura about the reasons a party entertainer is a great idea.
“Early experiences for children are some of the most special memories you can create to look back on. As a young adult myself, there are so many times I sit with friends to reminisce, laugh and sometimes cringe at some of my fondest childhood stories. Now, as a performer and entertainer, I get to watch these moments come to life from a different perspective and feel a responsibility to make sure I am doing justice to what I know my princess crazy, 5-year-old self would have dreamed about.
