Fairy Godmother party

Wow what a fabulous event with the Fairy Godmother, the protector of all those Woodland Fairies and Goblins who live at the bottom of your garden! The feedback was tremendous and Saffi’s mum said it was a magical bedtime with lots of inquisitive questions, wonder and amazement! I did my job well, very well with magic, fairy babies, interactive storytelling, tea party, fairy ring party games with real woodland wands but let’s not forget all that fairy dust too, singing, dancing and traditional party fun! A party to remain magical forever and to be remembered as the day Saffi met a real fairy. Even the boys joined in and everyone wanted a photograph with me at the end! It doesn’t get more magical than this.

What a year!

When Covid-19 struck and I was no longer allowed to do what I do best I decided it was time to educate myself in Marketing Techniques and improve my social media posts but it wasn’t easy! My area of expertise is in delivering excellent entertainment to everyone from the age of 3 to 103! That said, I approached this new found area with gusto and found I had entered a world of never ending options which I fully embraced. One year on I can say in all honesty that the hard work has paid off and my customers and bookings are once again flooding in. I wouldn’t say I was an expert in this new found field of Marketing but I have certainly learned a few new tricks up my sleeve, so to speak! Talking about tricks I have recently invested in the shrinking head illusion and it’s going down really well with children actually screaming as they fall backwards in shock and then giggle their heads off! Such fun ….

I delivered a lot of zoom parties during this time and although they were extremely well received and I was given excellent reviews and feedback they were by far my least enjoyable part of entertaining and I am glad to say that I am no longer offering these events! Nothing beats a live audience! I am happy to continue producing my free videos on my YouTube Channel though so please do keep a look out for them at Big Events Entertainment with Sandra

I wrote and published a fabulous book during this period called How to host the perfect kids party which is available on Amazon and well worth a read.

I am also finalising a children’s hybrid book about Captain Cassie who sails the seven sea’s. It looks at her life as a child on a paradise island, her struggles as a female Pirate Captain, global warming, plastics in our ocean and fitting in. A beautiful adventure book which offers video’s in QR format to complement the stories. I just need a publisher to be interested!

I have also managed to secure a regular slot as a Lunch Mate on the Amazing Steph McGovern’s Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch which my husband and I are thoroughly enjoying!

Thanks for all your support and loyalty – it means the world to me, it really does. Without you, I have no business!

SUPERHEROES PARTY PREVIEW

JAMES CELEBRATED HIS 6TH BIRTHDAY YESTERDAY WITH A SUPERHERO THEME

Here’s me setting up before all 50 guests arrive and this is what his mum had to say afterwards “Sandra is just such a professional! She did my sons 6th birthday party which was the first party his class at school had been to since they started school. I originally had to postpone because of COVID-19. At first I think some of the children were a little overwhelmed (not been to one all year) but Sandra knows exactly how to bring them all around and invite them into the fun. It went from them being a bit shy and stood with their parents to them all being fully involved with all the fun. Sandra has so much great stuff that there was never a moment where it stalled. I could just leave Sandra to it and the smile on my sons face was just brilliant!! I’ve already had loads of feedback from the other parents, one of them saying it was the best party EVER!! Safe to say, after not really being able to celebrate my sons birthday last year, Sandra made sure it went off with a bang today! Brilliant entertainer, book her as you won’t be disappointed!!

ANOTHER MASSIVE ROUND OF APPLAUSE FROM PARENTS TODAY AND A WHOOP, WHOOP AS WELL AS THE MOST AMAZING FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS!

CAT PARTY THEME

ANOTHER LOCAL PARTY AND PARENTS ARE GETTING TO KNOW ME NOW. I COULDN’T BELIEVE I RECEIVED A MASSIVE CHEER AND A ROUND OF APPLAUSE AT THE END!!

TOCKWITH VILLAGE HALL

Another fabulous party yesterday with the most hospitable parents! Here’s some of the highlights.

HUNSINGORE VILLAGE HALL

In over 20 years of delivering parties it’s a rarity for my customers to make an announcement to the parents asking them to thank me for delivering a brilliant party and telling them to only book me for future events! I received a massive cheer and lots of applause from many warm and welcoming parents today. One mum said she has 3 children, one of which is now 17 years old and that she has been to many parties but I was the best entertainer she had seen. I had such a fantastic time with the children and we played lots of fabulous Dinosaur party games plus I taught them the Chocolate (Choco Choco) dance moves! I couldn’t believe it when some of the mums told me I’m quite famous around these parts because it’s my name that’s been passed from parent to parent. It just goes to show that hard work pays dividends….

JOFLI

Look what I found recently in York! The bears name is JOFLI meaning Journey of Life and I absolutely love it!! Why not take a look for yourself and perhaps invest in a gift for a loved one. I love my caravan and will be taking mine everywhere with me and dressing him up too. I especially love the caravanning Club T-shirt and logo. I cannot wait for our adventures to begin but I expect he’ll get into some scrapes and provide you with some hilarious poses!

HERE’S AN EXAMPLE OF A FABULOUS PARTY I RECENTLY HAD THE PLEASURE OF DELIVERING IN YORK

SCHOOL DISCO

I attended a local school in Leeds and was given a playlist of songs for the entire year groups to dance to. They ranged from Gangnam, chocolate (Choco Choco), Purple People Eater, Saturday Night, Agadoo, Cha Cha slide and many more. We were on the school field in 28 degrees heat and thank goodness I could remember the dance moves to every single one of them!!!! This video footage was taken by a very kind teacher so thank you!

WOODSTOCK WEDDINGS AND EVENTS NEAR YORK

I did a 2 hour party for 17 girls aged 10 years yesterday and the venue was absolutely spectacular! I can honestly say hand on heart one of the best venues I have been to! The owners are wonderful, professional and passionate about their Services. This was a brilliant all girls event and I received the most heart warming feedback from the girls themselves at the end as well as from the parents. In fact the birthday girls father told me he used to run Haven Holiday Parks and he said “it’s the best money I’ve ever spent!” I was totally blown away by the feedback received
