    this-if they are less than 70-80 quid per hour they will be rubbish-good childrens entertainers are not cheap

    You know that £160 for two hours and £80 for one hour is the same right?



    I was puzzled by her response to the prices as well. £80 for one hour is fine, £160 for two hours is not fine.

    We had a good one recently that cost £130 for 2 hours.

    i piad £90 for 45 mins - but that was because it was the only one i could find who was available for the date i needed. That was for 30mins of magic and the remainder for shaped ballons.

    I would never do it again, as im sure he did less than 30 mins of magic (my fault i guess, as i shud have timed him - and he only gave two choices for balloons - a sword or a dog).

    Next time i'l look around a lot earlier to get better prices.

    Her birthday party is the weekend of the 10th April so maybe I have left it too late too! I think maybe the 1 hour bouncy castle party is best for this year at only £60 :oops:

    ask on your local netmums for recommendations, or there should be a board on there with things like this on

    I am having a party for my daughter for the first time this year, we have decided on bouncy castle and party games at home and thats stressing me out!! :lol:

    same weekend as my daughters too :lol: her birthday on 10th, party on 11th!! Good Luck we will need it!

    I had a bouncy castle also but needed a magician as well as i stupidly promised one. But im sure youll find something in the price range - i had such a problem as it was summer and everyone was booked and i only had two weeks to find someone as the previous person let me down.

    The entertainer at my son's party only offered a sword or a dog. He didn't charge anything just ate a lot of cake. Err, hang on, it was me!

    Just booked one here - £210 for 2 hours - defo the going rate in N London - unbelieveable cost!
