Exciting New Party Themes


Here at Party Time For Kids we are always on the lookout for ideas and new themes to add to our popular range of children’s party entertainment. Having already hosted a successful “The Greatest Showman “ themed party recently, it has now been added to our list of new party themes we can offer. A “Greatest Showman” theme party will include a circus backdrop and cutouts and an assortment of circus themed props for the children to play with. We will also add some fun games and, of course, include some popular songs from this wonderful movie which everyone will want to sing along to!

The new themes don’t stop there, due to popular demand we will be also be including a new “Unicorn” themed party. This will include a Unicorn themed background with some beautiful unicorn cut outs. We have also added some simple and fun games which will make our Unicorn party really magical!

Other exciting news! – I have recently attended a bubble work shop training course. This is a skill I have admired and wanted to achieve for a long time. I’ve now learnt how to create bubbles sculptures, smoke in bubbles, bubbles in bubbles and even a birthday child in a giant bubble! We all know how fascinated children are with bubbles and how they love to seem them floating in the air. As a result of my training, I will initially be offering a “free” 15 minute Bubble show as part of my birthday party entertainment. This’ll give me a chance to practice what I’ve learnt before offering a fantastic full bubble show package. Yes, there’s plenty to look forward to for the Autumn/Winter season which will keep this entertainer very busy! If you are interested in any of the above and would like more information, please enquire via the website, email or call me. Thanks 🙂 Richard

4th Birthday Party in Bournemouth

We chose party time for kids with Richard Welsh for our daughters Dolcie 4th birthday party. It was amazing! Great price, brilliant entertainment and excellent communication before the actual party. I was concerned with some children being young that they wouldn’t join in but Richard had every single one of them joining in,participating and enjoying every minute of the party! Including the parents!My daughter didn’t want it to end. Would definitely use party time for kids again! Thank you for making my daughter’s party so special and one to remember!- Lucy Keith- Venue- Muscliffe Youth Centre BH9 3LR

Brownies Christmas Party in Verwood

An excellent Christmas party, which all the Brownies really enjoyed. Richard got every girl involved, even the shy ones. We particularly liked the fact that there were no losers in the games. We would highly recommend Party Time for Kids and hope to use them again.-Sue Portnell – Leaders – 1st Verwood Brownies- Venue Verwood Guide HQ BH31 6DX

Poole childrens entertainers

Myself and six other Bournemouth and Poole based childrens entertainers pooled all our different talents to put on a show at Poole High School Theatre. The show was to help fund-raise for a local charity Amelia’s Rainbow.
A charity started by Karl and Chantel Cox in memory of their daughter Amelia who passed away in 2010 of Neuroblastoma.
We meet regularly to chat about the business of entertaining children as well as organising evenings out. We have all built a great friendship and often will recommend each other for parties and events if we are not able to fill the booking.
Months of planning, sharing ideas and publicising the show resulted in a sell out show to 300 Mums. Dads and children attending the first “BEN Family Variety Show“
We entertained the audience with a mix of comedy, magic, balloon modelling, juggling and audience participation and lots more. The show was a huge success with all proceeds from ticket sales going to Amelia’s Rainbow
The acts, Mr Merlin, Jamie Jigsaw, Krazy Kev, Philip Dixon (Get Up and Groove), Jules the Entertainer, Jamie Jambo, Pete Matthews & myself.
You can see from the photos we had a lot of fun and the audience were all very complimentary and eager for us to repeat the show.

happy new year 2017 from Party Time for Kids

At Party Time For Kids we would like to wish you a very Happy New Year.

Maybe a bit late but catching after a busy schedule of Christmas and Birthday parties.

2016 was another busy year and a big thank you to the new clients who have booked me for their children’s party. Also a large amount of parents returning to us to rebook or to entertain a brother or sister of previous birthday child. More new schools have been added to our regular roster of end of term events. These are mostly recommendations from a birthday party. We have added new themes due to high demand including Trolls and for older children our super cool UV/Neon parties have been a great success.

We are always looking for ways to improve or add to our list of childrens themed parties and are working on a best friends Teddys Bears Picnic Birthday party especially for the little ones.

If you are looking for birthday party entertainment in Bournemouth, Poole, Dorset, Southampton, Hampshire or the surrounding areas please check the website or look at us on Facebook.

Star Wars Party Entertainer Dorset

Here at Party time For Kids in Bournemouth we have seen a huge increase in bookings for childrens themed birthday parties. With the release of Star Wars “The Force Awakens” at Christmas, requests for a Star Wars themed party far exceeds any other request. I have been entertaining with this popular theme across Dorset and Hampshire for the last 10 years and have built up a list of fun games to go with the theme.

All the children are put into teams which include Jedi Knights v Storm Troopers

The list of games includes Hunt the Moon Rock – Use The Force Light Sabar Competition – Pump Up The Alien – Star Wars Runaround and many more.

Add to that a collection of Star Wars life size cut-outs – these are great for photo opportunities for the children and the parents.


Following on the heels of Star Wars are those loveable yellow people ‘The Minions’.

Minion party entertainer Christchurch, Bournemouth & Poole

Featured in the “Despicable Me “movies, the little guys are a huge favourite with children and parents alike. As always, we have a selection of lifesize cardboard minions for photo party memories.

We know that The Minions love bananas and we have a bunch of inflatable ones for a host of fun party games! There is also a version of Musical Statues with Gru and his Phart gun that can freeze you! (you have to have seen the movie)

I love being a Minions party entertainer, the kids always have so much fun!

Ahoy there!

Pirates and Princesses is always a firm favourite with children. The girls can either wear one of their lovely princess dresses or don a pirate costume. It’s always great fun to see the boys with their painted on 5 o’clock shadows and false beards. Popular games will include Sharks / Port Starboard / Treasure Hunt / Walk The Plank.

These are just a few of the childrens themed parties we offer. Please view our Themed Parties page or contact us for further information.

New Party Packages- Save Money !!!

Children's Birthday Party Entertainer Deals    Free childrens themed party extras on Friday

Planning a children’s birthday party  and  having trouble finding a venue on a weekend.

Why not book the party on the child’s birthday and make it an after school party.

If you check out all the updates on our party packages you can find all of the popular themes but also save money!

Normally the birthday star is made to feel very special in class at their school. Why not follow that through with an after school midweek  birthday party celebration . You will find there will not be a shortage of helpers (Mums) who will be on hand at the party.

You could even make it a joint party  with double the celebration but half the cost and the work.







Thank You Kids

A fantastic and busy December which had  me not only visiting some of my regular clients but also a handful of new bookers as well.

I was able to provide some Christmas end of term school discos from Winchester in Hampshire to school parties in Bournemouth and Poole. A new school in New Milton was added to the list after a successful private birthday party booking.

I’m able to cater for Key Stage 1 & 2 with a mixture of music and games to suit the different age groups. With a Christmas set up with themed Xmas games and my lovely elf outfit it was a successful list of bookings. And I know that they have all booked again for this year’s summer and Christmas discos.

So a big thank you to – Dance School Born to Perform – Barton On Sea Golf Club- 1st Bishopdown Brownies – Park School – Blandford British Legion – Tesco Southampton – Ashley School New Milton – Kingsworthy School Winchester – Longfleet School Poole – West Downland Primary School Fordingbridge .
