Everything you need to know about socially distanced garden parties for your child's birthday/family event.

Since launching this service to be available there has been a mixed response. From parents who are very excited about the prospect of being able to have a live show in their garden to celebrate their child’s birthday, to parents who are concerned that it is not for them. Here you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions, I have had regarding socially distanced garden parties.

Children's Entertainer Portsmouth

HOW MANY ARE WE ALLOWED FOR A GARDEN PARTY?

Government guidelines say that we are allowed to meet socially in groups of six. HOWEVER after the government announcement on 9th July regarding outdoor performances, this now means that have a performance turns your garden party from a social gathering of 6 people into a socially distanced outdoor performance for an audience for which you are then able to have however many people you can safely for the outdoor space you have available providing everyone is social distancing. So having an entertainer lets you legally up your numbers.

OK, WHAT WILL YOU DO IN THE CASE OF IT RAINING?

Our Great British weather is obviously problematic, it’s highly unpredictable. In the case of it raining we can do either one of two options.

  1. We can re-schedule for another day.
  2.  As from 1st August inside gatherings are permitted for a party of up to 30 people, however social distancing rules apply. So you could have it inside if need be.

YOU SAY YOU CAN’T COME IN THE HOUSE ATM UNTIL 1st AUGUST, SO HOW WILL YOU GET INTO THE GARDEN?

As far as this goes I will only be able to perform in certain gardens, if you have a side gate I can come into your back garden. If you cordon off an area by the gate with fun birthday banners I can set up my equipment there, in the case of you not having a side gate to your garden I can perform in your front garden instead if there is a reasonable amount of room. In the case of not having either of these then i could do the show in your local park or recreation ground.

WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU NEED THE TOILET?

It’s a valid question, and also a VERY popular one. Well without going into too much detail, During a busy weekend of parties i really don't get much of a chance to goto the toilet as i'm either performing at the party or driving to the shows, so over the last 25yrs i have developed a really strong bladder! and can go for hours without needing the toilet!

HOW SAFE IS THE SHOW?

Silly Scott has written the show entirely for this purpose. It’s an entirely different show to what I would normally do in a traditional hall party. There is loads of interaction still, but there is no getting the kids up to be helpers. It’s important that you know that I have read this www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/homes and am following it very strictly. You don’t have to read it all , but it is there if you have any other concerns.

Family Garden Party

WE HAVE OLDER CHILDREN TOO WILL THEY ENJOY THE SHOW?

As I say this is a show written especially for this unique situation. I realise that although it may be for the celebration of a young child in your family, you may have teenagers and of course you’ll be watching with your children too. With this in mind I have written a show which I think really is the encapsulation of family entertainment. The Magic is REALLY magical, the comedy is universal across the board. It’s important to me that you enjoy this as much as your child does.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

This will obviously depend on your location due to travel time and fuel, and also the duration of the show you require, so please contact Silly Scott for the packages and prices he currently offers.

Online Virtual Zoom Magic Show

I STILL DON’T FEEL 100% COMFORTABLE WITH THIS, OR DON’T HAVE A GARDEN, BUT WOULD STILL LIKE TO CELEBRATE MY CHILD’S BIRTHDAY. WHAT CAN I DO?

I understand that not everyone will feel entirely comfortable with having a garden party yet. Covid-19 has affected everyone in different ways. I have been successfully running Zoom Parties throughout lockdown, and will continue to do so going for the forceable future . They have received rave reviews.

Zoom Party Review

SO IF YOU ARE DOING ZOOM PARTIES WHY ARE YOU NOW DOING GARDEN PARTIES?

From a business point of view I have lost a lot due to the Covid-19 situation. It is important for me to keep my business alive and this seems like the most logical step for me. I want to carry on performing and providing parents with a safe and enjoyable party for their children, it gives me a lot of joy to provide smiles, giggles and magic. I realise it may not be for everyone, but for those who want the option I am proud to provide it safely and sensibly.

I hope this answers all your questions. Of course if you do have any other questions feel free to drop me an enquiry CLICK HERE and I am more than happy to go through anything with you.
