FAQs

 

 

Q: What ages are catered for in your magic shows?
A: My main audience is usually aged 3 – 10 years old. I treat older children in the audience as if they were adult and will use them in a routine where I may need a grown up, or to help assist smaller children.

Q: Are the children's magic shows suitable for pre-school children?
A: Yes. I do many shows for pre-school nurseries and all shows are age appropriate.

Q: Do you cater for children with special needs?
A: Children with special needs are particularly welcome at Charlie Muddles' magician events and are actively encouraged to participate.

Q: Do you have a DBS?
A: I do have a DBS but that was arranged when we became legal guardians of a child who came into our care. Legally, an entertainer does not require a DBS as they are not working unsupervised with children. If you think about it logically, every adult attending the party would also need a DBS

Q: Do you have a Public Liability Insurance?
A: I do. PLI is part of my membership of Equity.  

Q: Do you use live animals in your kid's magic shows?
A: No I never use live animals. I have a couple of dog puppets which the children love.

Q: Do you dress up as a clown?
A: No. Some children (and adults) are scared of clowns. I do dress up so that I am obviously the children's magician  and entertainer, but not in a clown outfit.

Q: What geographical area do you cover for your magic shows?
A: Usually within a 30 mile radius of Northampton. I still am taking bookings in Oxford but will need to take into account travelling. As a result, most of the bookings would be repeat and subject to availability

Q: Do you just do birthday parties?
A: No. I can perform wherever a children’s magician or kid's entertainer is needed. Events can include weddings and receptions, christenings, fetes, community events, restaurant fun days, Xmas parties (private & corporate), schools and pre-schools parties and corporate events.

Q: I have 15 children at a 45 minute children's magic party, Do I get a discount?
A: No. Our prices are competitive and take into account the preparation required beforehand, costs such as balloons, sweets etc and travelling time to and from the children's magic party.

Q: I have specific needs. Will that be a problem?
A: In most cases it won’t be a problem. It would be impossible to put every scenario on a website so please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Q: How do I pay you?
A: With modern technology improving, card payments can be accepted (along with with Apple pay & Google Pay) provided there is wifi or mobile network available. This will appear on your statement as Charlie Muddles Magic. Old fashioned cash is also accepted. 30 day credit is also available for corporate work where necessary provided it is agreed prior to booking.
