Over the Easter holidays, one of our entertainers, Liam Edwards, was busy at Great Central Railway as their very own mascot, Onslaught the Cat at their Easter Animals Event! Liam, along with a number of our other entertainers, has previously worked at the railway as a variety of characters at their Seasonal family events, including superheroes, villains, and everything in between! This time, it was GCR’s own mascot that was making an appearance for guests. Liam was excited to return to work with the railway to help to ensure the standard of interaction with the guests and have plenty of fun whilst there too! We asked him to let us know a little more about the experience.
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! So, when new films and television shows are released with the potential to inspire new party themes, I love getting to be a part of the process of putting it all together. (more…)
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.
I’m sure, by now, you’ve heard, the World’s beloved real – life Super Hero, Stan Lee has sadly passed away at the age of 95 leaving behind an incredible legacy.
Being the source of entertainment for a party is a lot of pressure. Great pressure; because I love what I do. You want to ensure every aspect of the party of what you’re in control of goes well. I had my debut unicorn party on Saturday 17th March and truthfully; I was nervous. It was something I had done before so there was an element of uncertainty but also how do you act as a Unicorn?!
We had the pleasure of going the Brain Injury team at Knights 1759 Solicitors on March 15th at the Kidz Middle Exhibition in Coventry. To see how we can support your next event with our professional Princess and Superhero impersonators please get in touch.
Descendants is about four villain kids who go to Auradon – the good side – and Ben, the son of Belle and future king, shows them the way of good and in time they become good but it’s not long until Mal can’t handle it for in Descendants two Mal goes back to the Isle of the Lost- the bad place- and Uma and Harry are now the big baddies and want to have more than Mal. if you wish to know more about Descendants, maybe watch the film so you get a better idea of the characters and the film.

I think that that actress who is playing Tinker Bell needs to have seen the film so they get a brief idea how she acts and what her personality is. This helps the actor to be more like Tinker bell and how she feels about certain things. (more…)
Ever thought about hosting a joint party with a friend? If your children share the same friends and their birthdays are around the same time a joint party could be the answer. As well as keeping costs down it means that you can plan an amazing party – and what’s better than to share you party with your best friend! (more…)
