Children’s Entertainer


Martin with Mascot the Robot Dog
Children’s Entertainer, Martin Thompson works regularly in Swansea, Cardiff and travels the whole of South and Mid Wales for kids birthday parties. We can entertain mainstream and special needs. He is a member of Equity, which maintains standards among children’s entertainers throughout Wales and the rest of the UK.

This is an outline of what the show can include:

Games and more: Includes games and competitions with the whole audience, or activity with selected members of the audience. This may include play parachute, space hoppers depending on the situation and event.
 
The Magic Show: Tricks can go wrong; but are ‘put right’ with the help of volunteers. Balloon models are made and presented to the helpers.
 
Puppets: The children may have a visit from Rocky the racoon, Audrey the carnivorous plant, Ringo the beetle or perhaps another wildlife puppet.
 
Robots: Our Kids Parties  includes Mascot the talking robot dog: Who is brave enough to take Mascot for a walk? Will he behave? And who will give him a glass of water when he is thirsty?
 
Disco: Music and played throughout in order to maintain the momentum, and to get the children ready for the next part of the show.
 
Martin has extensive experience with working with children and young people of all backgrounds and abilities.

The role of Equity, one of the world’s most recognised entertainment unions, is to support people in the entertainment industry and maintain standards. The Children’s Entertainment Working Party established a Code of Conduct for Equity Children’s Entertainers. This is the way in which customers and clients are able to differentiate between Equity Children’s Entertainers and other part-time amateurs or childminders that dress up. 

As an Equity Children’s Entertainer Swansea, Martin and the team abide by the code. We suggest that a responsible adult should be present, not meaning an older child, as this will help run the show better, and allow the children to learn by example for them to learn how to be an audience. The role of the staff is them concentrating as entertainers rather that child care. As an Equity Children’s Entertainer in Swansea, we are expected to be professional, committed to a good service, this being a career, a vocation and not a hobby. We have to be safe by providing equipment and props that are of professional quality, well maintained and Public Liability Insurance, £5 million and Portable Appliance Testing Certificate.

If there is a way we can help you, don’t hesitate to contact us.
