Dave is a fantastic children’s entertainer. Having seen him at a previous party we knew we had to book him for our son’s 5th. The booking procedure was smooth and professional, with some great touches such as the reassuring confirmation email a week before. When it came to the party itself Dave was absolutely great, arriving in plenty of time to set up and even involving my son in his preparations! During the party Dave was able to command the full attention of the children and knew exactly how to structure the party; involving our son in his act just enough to feel special without making it all about him, timing the break for food perfectly and helping the candles and cake run smoothly. Perfect!His show is great of course, but the best thing for me is that Dave plays to the children and doesn’t seem to feel the need to play to the adults - he simply doesn’t have to, the show is enjoyable for all ages. I wouldn’t hesitate to book Dave again or recommend him to anyone in need of a great party entertainer. Thanks Dave! More...

Me and a friend spoke to Dave about doing a joint party for both of our autistic son's. Dave was absolutely amazing with them and arranged the entertainment special for their needs. Everyone had a fantastic time, including the adults and the party bags were great too. Thank you so much x More...

Dave helped us entertain guests at a large event with about 200 people, aged from small children up to adults. AMAZING balloon making skills, was very professional, prompt and worked well with all age ranges. Great stuff!

What a fantastic party. Dave keeps the children entertained and enthralled for the full 2 hours. The children and adults loved him. This is the second party I’ve booked for one of my children’s parties and as always, Dave didn’t disappoint. More...

Dave was amazing and I would highly recommend him. Kept the children (and adults) happy with balloon modelling. We gave him some challenging requests, all of which he did perfectly. Sad that I didn't take any photos.

Just wanted to say a big,big thank you to Dave. I booked Dave for my son's 6th birthday party and if i could give him more than 5 star's,i would! He is a fantastic children's entertainer (and i think the adult's loved him just as much!). He kept the children engaged,involved all of them and most of all he made my son feel very special. He even helped had out the food and encouraged them all to eat. Now there are not many entertainers that would do that! I could go on and on about how good he is...just book him and see for yourselves! Thanks again Dave More...

Dave Hickory is an outstanding children's entertainer, his act is magical bright and very funny! There is simply nothing that Dave Hickory cannot do with a Balloon and the children absolutely love it! He is able to keep his audience engaged from the beginning to the end, his show is varied and very interactive with all the children. Dave not only entertains the children but the parents too, everyone was laughing and was drawn in just as much as the children. Importantly you can tell that he is an absolute natural and loves every minute of what he does. I highly recommend Dave Hickory to anyone looking for an entertainer, I think his act is suitable for all ages - you will not be disappointed! Thank you Dave for making Leo and Mia's birthday as 'magical' as it was. Steve, Michelle, Alfie, Leo and Mia (The Knights) More...

Thank you Dave for an entertaining party for x2 4 year olds. Dave kept 29 mostly 4 year olds entertained and enthralled with his fun magic and games. It's was a delight to see all the children laughing and joining in especially the two birthday boys. I've received lots of feedback from the other children's parents who have commented on how great the entertainment was and that is all thanks to Dave. The activities and jokes were age appropriate. I highly recommend Dave. Book now!! More...

Dave was absolutely fantastic, he kept all the children (and parents) enthralled for 2 hours. The children loved the magic, balloons and disco and he made our daughter feel special on her birthday - she said he was very, very, very fun! He was prompt and professional throughout even helping and entertaining the children during lunch. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Dave, it was fab. More...

Dave entertained my son's 7th birthday party (Jan 2018) and was really fantastic! The children and parents were amused and fully entertained throughout. My son is very shy but Dave managed to get him involved and out of his shell! He really enjoyed it.
Many comments also from parents about how good he was. Will definitely book again!

Dave performed at my Daughters 8th Birthday Party yesterday. There were 31 children and 10 adults. From the time he walked in the door till he left he was interacting with the children even whilst setting up. The show he gave was absolutely fantastic. The youngest guest was 3 and the oldest 72 and Dave entertained each and every one of us. With his mix of magic, balloon modelling, comedy and games he captured the attention of everyone for the whole 2hrs. Everyone who came have said what a great show. Dave even helped when the the children had food taking trays round.
If you're having a party I would definitely recommend Dave.
My Mums having a party next year and is hoping to book him too.
Thank you Dave for an outstanding show.

Dave's become a bit of a regular fixture at our Corsham Town Council events - fetes, fairs and Christmas Lights - and is a great entertainer and asset to have at them. The children love him and his balloon models and he's always easy to spot as there there's a constant crowd following him around. More...

What a fantastic birthday party my 5 dear old had with his whole class, friends and their siblings last week with Dave. Dave took care of everything, music, magic, laughter, party games, balloon dogs for every child to take home etc etc. Several parents took business cards and ALL parents have said to me what a brilliant time their children had. We had a 2 hour party with 45 children and at least 25 adults there. Everyone had a great time. Dave worked with us with food and cake times to make sure everything ran like clockwork. Possibly the biggest revelation of all was his PA microphone - he only thing that could be heard amongst the crowd of excited children's voices - and it worked superbly out keeping everyone in the party as everyone could hear! (if you've done a large party in a hall before you'll know what I mean!). Our little birthday boy was the star of the show and Dave involved him, and others, in everything that was happening. Amazing. Wondering if I can get away with hiring him next year as well! More...

Dave is absolutely brilliant, amazing with the children and very funny for adults too! Highly professional, prompt and always excellent communication. I've hired him several times and he always takes the stress out of the party organisation. Have already highly recommended him to friends and family who have gone on to hire him for parties and events. Top bloke! More...

Absolutely amazing man. His skills & enthusiasm seems endless. I've attended kids parties, magical maths, dining entertainment nights, never ever seen Dave without a great smile or a balloon in his hand. Very very popular in & around Wiltshire. Highly recommend Dave for any entertainment occasions! More...

Ive not had my party yet but I have seen Dave at other events. Booking the party for my daughters was easy and when I spoke to Dave on the phone he was happy to answer all my questions about my up coming event. When I watched Dave's show at my daughters school he was so good with the children of all ages so I knew he was the entertainer I needed to make my girls party so special. Can 100% recommend.
