Do you do shows in houses?
Yes! Shows in homes are great because you don’t have to worry about finding a venue and you have everything to hand. Just allow space for the children to sit and watch the show and for dancing (if you’ve booked that package)
You may need to move some furniture around, but we can fit shows into surprisingly small areas – just ask us for advice.
We’re also happy to perform in halls and other venues.

Can you help my child to learn magic?
If your child has a passion for magic, they may be very interested in our “Magic Lessons” DVD – view the DVD trailer and our super Magic Set, which are fantastic introductions to the wonderful world of magic.
They’ll learn some basic tricks that they’ll be able to show to friends and family.
They’re perfect gifts for the birthday child or for any child who’s interested in learning more about magic. Great for Dads and Grandads too!
How much do you charge – do you offer discounts?
Children’s parties can be very expensive. We know that. So we’re proud to be very competitive and many of our reviewers comment on the fact that we’re great value for money.
Discounts are sometimes offered so don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter and “Like and Follow” our Facebook Page , we can keep you periodically informed of special offers.
You can certainly be reassured that your party will be totally stress-free. All you need to do is choose the location and arrange the food. We can even give you invites to download – for free! We can also arrange party bags if you like.
What age group do you entertain?
Children aged 4-8 absolutely love Professor Potty’s mix of zany magic and fun. However, our smallest guests at pre-schools have a fantastic time when Professor Potty visits too. If you have a few older guests, it’s not a problem – we know from our many reviews that over this age bracket (and adults) love Professor Potty too. For over 9s, why not talk to the Amazing Alvan – he creates fantastic parties for older children.
Do you have references?
You can be reassured that Professor Potty has his Enhanced CRB licence and is fully insured. He’s more than happy to give you genuine references from his recent clients. Professor Potty prides himself in being professional, from the moment that you contact him, through to the end of the party. When you book, you’ll receive a written confirmation and Professor Potty will call before the party to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Can you supply party bags?
Absolutely! Our super party bags contain age appropriate items and are suitable for boys and girls. Because we supply them “Sale or Return” we save you the worry of not having enough, or too many on the day and only charge you for the amount you use. We think that’s only fair. Ask us for more details.
Do you do weekday shows?
Yes, Professor Potty is available for fun and mayhem seven days a week! Discounts are available for some midweek parties during the day and holiday times too, so please do check for availability. Our busiest times are at weekends and bookings often come in months in advance so if you have a date in mind please check with us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
