Funny, engaging both kids (age 5) and parents enjoyed his magic and Punch and Judy show. He is old fashioned so no loud microphone and technology. It was simple but it works. I would definitely recommend him. More...

Jonathan was so easy to deal with. Answered my request for a quote really quickly, emailed me full details on the service and show he provides and gave me a call to discuss. On the day he arrived on time and stayed late!! We had 20, 7year olds and he held their attention for the full 2 hours and even the adults couldn’t help but watch and laugh!! Absolutely brilliant and would definitely recommend!!! More...

Jonathan entertained around 20 children at our twins' 6th birthday. I had no idea before how he'd keep them all listening. ..but he did! The games and show were all funny and entertaining, and (most importantly) the kids absolutely loved it. He even managed to wear them out ...well, almost :) Highly recommend. More...

Jonathan engaged the children from the minute they walked into the room and had them captivated from the start, he kept their attention throughout the full 2 hours and had the children so inspired they repeated some of the magic they learn to their families straight after the party. Would highly recommend.

I booked Jonathan for my daughters sixth birthday party – I got a very quick response from my initial enquiry which was fantastic and he took the time to discuss what I needed for the party and gave me the perfect solution. I have to say I would recommend him to anyone looking for a magician for a party. From the moment he arrived to the moment that he left he kept the children entertained and happy. All the parents thought he was fantastic. There were no gaps or lulls in his performance and all 30 children were glued to him for the entirety of the performance and big smiles all around. I couldn’t recommend him enough to people – I didn’t have to really do anything at the party he ran the whole thing which was fantastic. More...

Thank you Tanya. Your comments on my performance are much appreciated. It was a pleasure attending your child's Birthday party. Thank you for booking me.

Jonathan performed at my daughters 6th birthday party. He did an amazing job keeping 30 children under control and they all loved his show.

Jonathan turned up early and started interacting with the kids before he was due to start. He was great to deal with and his enthusiasm is superb….he clearly loves what he does.

I’d have no hesitation recommending him and booking him again next year. Thanks Jonathan.

Jonathan was originally booked for my son’s 1st birthday back in September 2020. Due to restrictions at the time it was not possible so with mutual agreement we rearranged for September 2021. Jonathan arrived ahead of schedule and set up quickly. He was excellent at keeping the younger children at the party engaged for a full hour! He also entertained the parents as his humour was suitable for children and parents alike. I’ve had multiple compliments about how good he was from parents at the party, and I’m in no doubt when the time suits they’ll be asking for his details to book for their own children. Thank you Jonathan. More...

Absolutely outstanding! Such a professional and great with our audience young and old! Jonathon was able to adapt amazingly. Originally booked to walk around doing magic tricks and balloon making he was a true professional in realizing that the way the audience was set up (due to unpredictable weather) that the audience would sit and watch what turned out to be an hour long show! We couldn’t recommend enough and will always be on the forefront of our minds next time we would like to book future entertainment. Five-star rating for a five-star gentleman. Thank you! More...

Jonathan was just so great with the kids! From his clear and proactive written communication pre event to his actual show I am left really satisfied and delighted. Jonathan kept all 8 x 5year old engaged and amused for an hour. He s funny and kind and the kids (and adults!) enjoyed the tricks and jokes. Jonathan was also so generous with the balloon animals, offering extras to kids and making sure no one was /felt left out. I would highly recommend Jonathan. More...

We booked Jonathan for our sons 5th birthday party for October just after I booked the new 6 people restriction where coming in the following week so Jonathan rearranged the date for us at such short notice & managed to fit us in between other party’s so that our son could still have his friends at his party! All covid secure!
He was amazing the kids loved him & the adults loved his jokes to!

10/10 experience I couldn't recommend Jonathan highly enough. I did a google search and found him on the Bark Website. From the moment of first messaging he was quick & professional to respond. All booked for 4 weeks time then the government announced the new laws where only 6 people can meet from the 14th Sept, massive spanner in the works, I messaged late on the Thursday to ask to reschedule to the Sunday 13th in only 3 days time and without any problems he saved my 6 year olds party. He had the best day. Jonathan arrived early & messaged to say his waiting outside until his sceduled arrive. He set up. Got to know the children. Delivered the best party with games, prizes, dancing, break for party tea which he perfectly got them to their places around a table. Then the next 1 hour magic show & balloon making. I wouldn't have thought it possible 3-6 year olds to sit & watch & laugh their socks off so hard for so long. He was just brilliant and I would have him again for sure. Many Thanks Jonathan, its great to recommend brilliant people. All the adults also had a hoot & we still cant fathom the tricks really impressive. Thank you for a great day More...

Jonathan is clearly very experienced as he was able to keep 15 x 5/6 year olds entertained for the full hour with no problem at all. The kids found him hilarious...and so did the adults! More...

We started out wanting to find someone who could perform Punch and Judy for our son’s 5th birthday party and discovered Jonathan and that he provided a full package of a two hour birthday celebration. From the moment the children arrived he engaged with them all and started telling jokes, even one or two for the parents who stayed. Once everyone had arrived Jonathan got the children playing a few party games, such as Musical bumps and Statues rolled into one, and after all the games were played each child was given a choice of prize had they been the winner or not. We then had a little break for food, while Jonanthan set up for some magic tricks and the Punch and Judy show. The magic tricks were very clever, often giving the Children the belief that they had the solution only to be proven wrong and leaving them with open mouths plus many “wows”. The Punch and Judy show was brilliant. Having seen a few recently it was so good that Jonathan added a moral to the tale, which essentially is not the most PC story, meaning that the children understood that violence is not a good solution. The children were totally captivated throughout the whole of the party and from the comments I’ve had from Mum’s they all thought it was brilliant fun.

I would thoroughly recommend Jonathan as an entertainer and should I need a Punch and Judy again in the future he would be my first port of call

Balloon Twisters & Entertainers

First time we have used Jonathan for a party event, the guests consisted of adults, teenagers, young children aged five plus and disabled adults.
Everyone enjoyed the show, the children loved the balloons and the magic tricks, the Punch and Judy show had all the adults laughing and all the children watched in amazement!
Our disabled friends were either amazed or ignored him completely but to be honest they ignore everyone.
All in all, a great time was had by all.
