Hi James, thank you so much for entertaining the children yesterday at Euan's 4th Birthday Party. Euan really loved it and I've had lots of texts from the other parents saying how "Brilliant" you were. Both the games section and the Magic show managed to keep everyone engaged, which is not easy with a group of excited children aged 3 -7, and that's not to mention the parents who loved show too (and the banter Wink). 

Also, thanks for the recommendations and advice re the hall, you really did make it easy for me and took away the stress of it all; I'll definitely use you again for any future parties (children or adult).

Best Wishes, 
Dawn Shepherd (The Complete Party Sat 9 Feb '13) 


 Hi James,
Just to say that the party today was just absolutely fantastic!!  All the kids (and adults) loved it and we would definitely book you again.  From the moment it started the kids were engaged and amused throughout, they enjoyed the party games section and were captivated by the magic show.  Harry absolutely loved it and didn't stop talking about it afterwards, and Olivia really enjoyed herself as well.  The adults were also very impressed and we had loads of comments and people asking about the types of parties you do.  I have to say that me and my sister felt a little guilty at times as we literally felt like we had nothing to do, it made the day really easy for us and left Harry and Olivia with some very special memories.  So, a big thank you and we look forward to using you again in the future.

 "Hi James

Just wanted to say a big thank you for coming to entertain our youth club last night, all 50 kids had a ball. Your show was fun for adults and kids from start to finish and I am still laughing at your trick to get them seated at the tables, that was brilliant!! How you managed to keep so many kids in order for 2 hours is 'amazing' but the fact that you are such a great entertainer and in fact a really nice guy is the answer !!!

Would love to see your adult magic shows sometime as I am still trying to figure out the wedding ring trick !!! Matthew said to tell you the dvd was FAB as we all had to sit at 10pm last night and watch it before he would go to bed.

Thanks again

Helen "

 " Hi James
Just a wee email to say thank you so much for Saturday.

Everyone has been raving about how enjoyable your show was and how
amazing your magic tricks were!  Aduts and kids alike all loved it.
You made the Communion party - how you managed to keep all the kids
(and adults!) entertained for 3 hrs is beyond me but you really did
make it very easy for the adults to relax and enjoy themselves.  I
can't recommend you enough and if any potential clients want to chat
to someone who has used you, feel free to pass on my number, more than
happy to tell folk how great you are!!

Thanks again,



"James delivered a fantastic show for our daughter Marcie's 5th birthday party in March 2011.  We had over 40 kids ranging from 2 to 11 and he kept them all mesmerized (and parents amused).  The kids loved the mix of magic and mayhem. The dancing and games let the kids burn off steam before settling down for the show.    Big parties can often be overwhelming for young kids and we're grateful that James was sensitive to our daughter's needs and made sure that she really enjoyed her special day.  
We're happy to recommend James. He's a talented performer and a really nice man."

 The Magic Party (45 Minutes) £150.00
(Only Available within a 10 mile radius of ML5 4TR) 


This party is 45 minutes of Comedy Magic.  It is full of non stop comedy antics where James seems to get almost everything wrong but the kids always seem to help him get it right in the end. This style of childrens entertainment really works well for James as the helpers become the real stars of the show. Also included in the party is a free magic DVD for the party child to learn their own magic tricks (available to buy from my magic shop at £9.99).  I also supply 5 Balloon Models to use as prizes for my magical helpers. Additional balloons are available for £1.00 each when booking a party or £1.50 from the online magic shop.


The Magic Party Deluxe (45 min) £200.00


The same party as above however your child will get a free magic set as welll as the magic DVD. You will also receive 15 balloon models. The deluxe party also comes with a great magic effect where a giant birthday card is magically coloured and given to the birthday child as a magical souvenir of their party.




The Complete Party (2 Hours)  £225.00
(This is the most popular party)


This party breaks down into 45 minutes of musical games, dancing, singing and competitions for prizes. We also supply the birthday music and organise the kids to sing Happy Birthday for the birthday child. The game section is a greater filler at the start of the party as more often than not most people arrive late and get very disappointed if they miss the magic show. We include a 30 minute break for food/drinks and then onto the 45 minute Comedy Magic Show. All you have to do is feed the children and hand them their coats on the way out. This party is ideal for busy parents that want to sit down and enjoy the party and leave the hard work to the professionals. This show includes a free Magic DVD for the party child and 10 balloon models for prizes. 



 The Ultimate Party (3 Hours) £375.00

 (When only the best will do!!)


This party comes 'All singing and dancing' with a 'Twinkle Star' backdrop to give the show a real theater stage experience. **

 The party starts off with balloon modelling where James makes all your guests the coolest party hats known to man! Then it is time for some games and competitions, some of which come from James' holiday park family shows, such as balloon modelling competitions, the mummy maker and disco limbo. Also included are some of the more traditional party games like musical statues/bumps and pass the parcel (James supplies the parcel saving you the hassle!). The children then have a 30 minute food break after which 'Its Show Time' with The Amazing James' Comedy Magic Show (1hour).  The kids will be rolling about the floor with his hilarious antics and madcap comedy. After they get their breath back James will finish off with a mini disco. There will be cheesy dances that the kids love and some singing and dancing competitions. This party lasts a full 3 hrs and includes 20 party bags, a free magic DVD for the party child and their very own starter magic set. Additional bags are available for £1.50 each when booking a party or £2.50 from the online magic shop.  Balloon models can be purchased at £1.00 each as party favours. 

Please note the running order of the Ultimate Party can change to suit your needs or as James feels it would work best on the day. 

** The twinkle backdrop is not available in the peak months which are May & December. 


(Due to the overwhelming demand of this show it is only available at weekends from 10am to 1pm & 3pm to 6pm please book early to avoid dissapointment)

            The Ultimate Communion Party (3 Hours) £425.00 


This party is similar to the 'Ultimate Party' but more emphasis is placed on entertaining the older children and adults too. This show does not come with the backdrops but does include more competitions and full on entertainment to appeal to young kids and Great Auntie Mable at the same time! This programme allows for musical breaks between entertainment activities to enable you to enjoy the buffet and some drinking time with your friends and family.  Some of the magic routines in the magic show come from James' stand up cabaret show and have some one liners that the adults will love and the kids won't understand. If there is specific music you would like played in the music breaks this can be arranged if enough notice is given. For more information on this really unique entertainment package please give James a call.


Hi James


Wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for the fantastic entertainment at Megan and Olivia's First Communion party yesterday.  You totally captivated the children for 3 whole hours!    Not only did you entertain them but you were fantastic at managing them as well, which is no mean feat.   From all the parents - a big thank you ! 

 Your party games were really original and great entertainment for children and adults alike - even the members of my family who I thought would never participate in a million years, were in the middle of the floor joining in with great gusto!     What an amazing 3 hours of entertainment, from games, to balloon modelling to magic - not to mention the comedy one-liners!

 Everyone at the party commented on how much they enjoyed themselves - and that was mostly down to you.     You helped make the special day even more spectacular.    You will be the first thing I book when I'm organising any future parties!


Thank you.

Karen Hannah


PS:   Megan loves the Magic DVD and was practising the tricks most of the night!

 Feedback from previous parties -

Dear James, Thank you so much for making Oliver's sixth birthday party such a success. All the children had a wonderful time and they are still talking about all the fun they had. Your show was excellent, not only did it thoroughly entertain the children but the adults as well. It was the first time that I have had a children's entertainer at one of my children's parties and I will definitely be doing it again. Thank you so much for making it a wonderful day for the children.
                                                       Kind regards,

                                                       Harriet Drury.


Good afternoon James,
Just dropping a wee note to express our thanks for yesterday, Kate & Eva's party, it was great to see 20 kid's having a ball, kept fully entertained & under someones control for 2 whole hours, you must be a magician right enough !! 
Also thanks for "Rouffus" the rabbit, Eva quizzed me this morning at 4.20am ! on how did Rouffus manage to pop his head in & out of the book hiding from you, and then manage to get himself back into the other book ??......she said he must be real....obviously someone was paying plenty of attention !!
Thanks again James for making our daughter's party special.

 Hi James
Just a note to say thank you for entertaining the 30 children at my daughter Romys 7th birthday party.
All the children had a great time and you kept their attention for the whole 2 hours which made me 
quite relaxed and able to speak to family and friends, it was exactly what I was looking for, also the party 
bags you supplied were great and all I had to do was put a piece of birthday cake in each of them.
thanks again
best regards 



Just a note to say a big thank you for your magic show at Carrie's Christening on 24 January 2010.  You captivated the kids (and adults) from the moment you arrived.  The kids loved every minute of your show and the adults enjoyed it too.  Everyone commented on how good you were and we are still wondering how you did the trick with my ring!  Thank you also for including big sister Leah, she loved her magic DVD and insisted on watching it the minute that we got home.  Thanks again for helping to make a great day even better.

James worked so hard at ensuring that all the children were involved in their excellent Party Games / Magic Show which had all the children mesmerized.

I have never seen a group of children interact so well together and it was lovely to see 26 children all laughing and enjoying the marvelous Show.

On leaving the party our 5 year old son asked if James and Anna could be at his next party and who am I to disappoint!

I could not have asked for a better party for our son and the Mum's who stayed enjoyed the show too!'    

 Hope to see you both again in the future and we will be delighted to recommend you to any of our friends and family.

Thank you very very much for Madison's 5th birthday party it was truly magical. Every kid that was there went home with a big smile on their wee face and as a mother you can't ask for more than that but you gave us more they were still talking about it when they went back to nursery. Madison loved her day and said it was the best ever and will be booking you again next year.
Thanks again Jade Carroll (Madison mum 17th april) from Biggar.
Hi james,
Just a quick note to say thanks very much for making Edens birthday party excellent for us, all the kids big and small loved it and we were all talking about how good it was long after you had finished and gone. Everyone was still laughing and talking about the performnce as they were leaving and I know that the adults (big kids) that were there enjoyed it very much too.
We would recommend you everytime and we will ask you to be at another party for us without a doubt.
Thanks again from,
Eden, Koby, Andrew, Craig and mum and dad.

Hi James

Thanks for yesterday, we all had a fantastic day! The girls and their friends really enjoyed their party and I thought you did a great job of keeping so many children under control and entertained. Our only contribution was to hand out party bags at the end and that 5 minutes was less organised than your whole show what with all the twisted balloon strings - wont be doing that again!!!! I heard Bethany asking Rebecca this morning what the 'magic trick secrets' were that you had told her but she obviously wasn't for sharing! I'm sure they'll all be talking about it today at school...

Anyway, thanks again. I am sure we will be in touch in the future and if I can be of any assistance around references etc. please let me know. I would have no problem in recommending you to anyone who might show an interest.



Sorry about the car park escapade, how rude were they! Glad you got to your next job on time though...

Hi James 

Many thanks for entertaining the children at my daughter, Emily's 6th

birthday party on Saturday, everyone thoroughy enjoyed the time you had with us.

I was particularly impressed with the way you managed to get my shy daughter to take part with no inhibitions and help with your magic tricks and also how you coped with the "more disruptive children" in the party.

Emily has spent all weekend telling her friends and family that "James is coming to her party next year" so you may need to keep that date free in your diary.

Thank you once again for the time you took to find out about the children prior to the party and how you entertained them throughout.

I will most definitely be in touch in the future.  There might even be an opportunity of a fundraiser for the school - for adults.

I will be in touch

Many thanks

"Thanks for making the day extra special, the kids and adults loved the magic show, balloons and party games and bags which you brought for the kids.  You did an excellent job of keeping the children well entertained and under control for a few hours.  When asking my four year old, Aidan, what was the best part of your brother's christening day he replied, "the magician".  Thanks again for a great day!

Hi James,

Thank you so much for making our daughter's 5th birthday party fantastic!! You did an amazing job of entertaining all the kids at all times - they loved the musical games and the great fun with the magic show. Both kids and adults all mentioned how much they had enjoyed the afternoon - not sure how we'll be able to top it! The party bags and balloons were also fantastic, which is always another special part of a birthday party! Thank you also for being so easy, helpful and friendly to work with throughout the whole process: from information and booking at the outset, to the "amazing" party experience, and answering all my questions in between - much appreciated indeed!!

Wishing you and your young family all the very best!
Kind regards,

(Kirsty Burns from Lanark) 15th March  ( Jodie's 5th Birthday)



Ruth says:

My son went to his friend's fourth birthday party (Feb 08) and James was the entertainer. I was very impressed - he had the children enthralled for a full 45 minutes with an excellent mixture of slapstick 'messing it up' and real tricks. Both children and adults laughed a lot and it was a pleasure to watch the childrens' faces. He was extremely approachable and friendly to adults and children alike. The balloon sword which my son got at the end was a highlight for him. My son really enjoyed the show and so did I!
