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.
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.
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.

Hello Party People!
What a blast we are having so far in 2017, with a year ahead of us already jam packed with parties and events! We just can’t wait to host more wonderful birthday celebrations and help make those memories that last a lifetime…
We have some new developments of course for this year as we now have Princess ‘Moana’ as part of our team! Already she is proving popular and you can book her now for your very own themed birthday party, including an all new Hawaiian flower Coronation Ceremony and Island Princess themed games! Just drop us an enquiry today! Speaking of which, enquiries have just got even easier with our new contact form available to fill out on our website under the ‘Contact’ page. It’s so quick and simple to send us your requests and we aim to get back to us as soon as we can to help you organise that special day!
We are so busy with enquiries on a daily basis, but please always keep in mind that particularly on the weekends our team is out performing and hosting parties so we aren’t usually in office on Saturdays or Sundays, but all enquiries will be answered as soon as possible. We pride ourselves in being a popular and well organised team of professionals, with our Company growing larger by the year we have fantastic qualified performers, vocalists, actors, dancers and stuntmen! Why not check out our team members also on the website?
The year is already ticking by so quickly as we have just entered March, so please always be sure to contact us as soon as you can with any enquiries you may have to avoid disappointment! Don’t forget we aren’t just about Princesses; we host boy’s parties too! Our Star Wars parties are proving to be a real hit with our customer’s aswell as our friendly neighbourhood Spider Man – who is always a favourite! Even at Princess parties!
Finally we would like to thank everyone who has booked with us so far this year and all of previous customers for their kind words and feedback, it’s always greatly appreciated and it’s our pleasure to host parties and events. Infact, you may even catch our team at events this year! Keep those eyes peeled as we always make character appearances throughout the year at you’re favourite places to visit including Crich Tramway Museum, White Post Farm and Great Central Railway! Keep updated on our Facebook page to see if you’ll be able to make an event near you and see our characters in action once again.
A couple of our Naughty Elves from Santa’s Workshop were recently spotted on the Trains at Great Central Railway in December, providing entertainment and mischief on Santa’s magical steam train ride. Now they’re back working hard at the North Pole until next year, but they were delighted to meet so many happy children and find out who their favourite princesses and Superheroes were! Why not ask your child today if they’d like a character to come to their birthday party? Its Super fun, magical and exciting! Even lots of parents have admitted to us that they were just as excited as their children – if not more! Thanks for reading folks, and if you’ve got a party coming up with us, we look forward meeting you soon!
Already we are into April and our characters are enjoying the sunshine – as Tinker Bell & Captain Hook will be paying a visit to Great Central Railway in Loughborough! Meet them at the platform for three wonderful days, as Tink will be making some magical wishes come true with her Pixie Dust! But be careful, wherever Tink goes the dastardly Captain Hook isn’t too far behind, making sure she isn’t recruiting more children to join Peter’s team of Lost Boys back in Neverland! They will both be there from April 30th to May 2nd, so come on down to say hello to everyone’s favourite Fairy and Pirate Villain! (more…)
It has been a while since we posted on the News page so we thought we would update you on some of our magical parties from the winter season! First we would like to wish you all a very Happy New year! We are so excited to meet lots of new freinds in 2016 and of course we hope to see some of our old friends too! We have had an amazing year we cant thank you all enough for your support!
