Project Description

Community Events to Remember

There is no more fun for a child than experiencing Community Events. Mums against Dads, standing with Grandmas and grandpas, Football clubs against rugby clubs, and the such. Unfortunately they are a dying breed in today’s society however, In certain areas it is as strong as ever and as this Photograph shows, Stripey Wipey has the perfect blend of magic silliness, and daft games to enhance any community event. Why not throw in the Walkaboutables into your mix for a day the children will never forget.

When stripey Wipey attends your event you will benefit from a combination of services and entertainment you see listed here. Each child is different and each event in its own right requires a combination of these programs of Entertainment.

I know it sounds like a pick n mix approach to children’s party entertainment, but with experience over the past 20 years I have blended together my act into party pieces to suit every occasion. Each performance is altered according to the circumstances on the day and how the children are responding to each thing as it happens. The Act / performance is therefore determined by the children on the day with a general guideline of what you see here and throughout my website.

  • Comedy Magic – The foundation of every Stripey Wipey performance

  • Smiling Happy Children – the guaranteed result of Booking Stripey Wipey

  • Stress Free Organising – The easy option for Parents and Event organisers

Community Events Entertainment FAQ

Do you cover my Area?2017-08-07T15:07:28+01:00

I travel for miles and miles delivering magical smiles.

I am based just north of Cambridge.  Stripey Wipey can entertain your children anywhere across the Midlands, East Anglia and the South East of England. This generally from north Lincolnshire to London and around the M25 into Surrey and Hampshire. Please do ask us if you would like us to entertain at your party elsewhere as the only additional costs are those for travel.

Below is a comprehensive but not exhaustive list of the types of event catered for by Stripey Wipey the children’s entertainers:

Childrens birthday parties, family fun days, school events, corporate events, weddings, private events, christmas parties, wedding anniversaries, christenings and Corporate fun Days.

If you are arranging an event and require a childrens entertainer then you’ve come to the right place. Search our areas to find if Stripey Wipey the children’s entertainer is working in your area.

Below is a guide but by no means an exhaustive list of the locations Stripey regularly visits:

What type of childrens entertainer are you?2017-08-07T15:07:28+01:00

Our birthday party entertainment encompasses every branch of children’s party entertainment, from comedy magic, Balloons, Games, competitions, puppets, magic animals and everything in between.
We can carry out a program that completely suits your event, perhaps 3 magic shows of 20 minutes for a carnival or fete is what you are looking for; or a 45 minute end of school show for the children within your area. Of course 2 hour birthday party shows are also offered.
So whatever event, time or circumstance that you need a qualified, professional experienced entertainer that is able to engage children of all ages (and the adults).. just look at the reviews I have received for Kids party entertainment, birthday parties and Master of Ceremonies.

What do you recommend for party food?2017-05-19T11:19:38+01:00

When it comes to party food, keep it simple and fast. Your guests have only 20 minutes for food, cake, toilet and get ready for the second half. Light food, we don’t want them bringing it back ? !!!

How much will it cost?2017-08-07T15:07:29+01:00

The price is based on mileage from me / or another booking on that day (not a postcode lottery). If you live 300 miles away you don’t pay the same as my next door neighbour!

What you pay is therefore a complicated formula so that everyone in your area pays the same for your type of performance.

The easiest and fastest way to get a price is to fill out a Fast Track Enquiry form here! 

Can I do a joint party?2017-06-12T11:23:55+01:00

Great Idea! – you will see images throughout the site, I love joint birthday parties for children and it is a great way to share the costs. The only issue I have is that it is hard to make one child feel extra special when they are sharing a party (I have to be fair to all birthday Children).

I used to allow any number for a share, however I had to draw the line when one mum (not all hers) had 5 birthday children. There is a £10 surcharge per birthday child above two because I have to work much harder during tea (to secretly make extra prizes!!).

How many children can we invite to the event?2017-05-19T10:07:28+01:00

960 children for private parties and 5,000 for Corporate

It always makes me laugh when mums and party organisers tell me tales of the “Professional” Children’s party entertainers that only allow 18 -30 children. Every year Stripey Wipey entertains regularly between 500 and 900 at one event.

I can control 900 children (in one room) without them knowing they are being controlled because they are laughing too much. A room filled with hilarious games, general silliness, slap-stick comedy, stories of magical creatures, superheros and fire-breathing dragons results in only one thing. Happy children that want to be involved

Do you have any birthday party ideas?2017-05-19T10:03:51+01:00

Birthday party Ideas

For party organisers, event planners and busy mums with no time. Stripey Wipey has a great set of birthday party ideas and party themes (stripes are a ready-made theme) gathered during his 20 years performing for children. Today it is often so confusing with the amount of options out there.

A traditional children’s magic show full of party magic, games, competitions lots of friends, a themed Birthday cake, is all that is needed for that child and all their friends to go home with treasured memories. And the Uk’s leading choice for doing that is Stripey Wipey the children s entertainer.

Do I really have to book as early as people say?2017-06-12T11:23:55+01:00

The trouble with being a very popular and top-rated entertainer of children, Stripey Wipey gets booked sometimes 11 months (or years) in advance . This is particularly true for the busiest periods like School and Corporate Christmas parties, and Easter as well as end of term parties. Regular clients have been booking the same days year in year out for 20 years.

Booking Stripey for your party event could not be easier, just pick up the phone, or use the contact form on this page, or click the check-availability buttons throughout the website

Do you really teach them a street dance?2017-05-19T10:00:47+01:00

I have been told here by Mrs Stripey Wipey to be careful; The truth is I am no Street Dancer, but I enjoy the fun and games when I “teach” the children my crazy dance.

The street dance party is for the 4 to 12 years age group. The winner gets a big balloon prize. It is perfect at a Birthday party or family party event like a Wedding or Christening,

The children just love the experience, especially 6 and 7 year girls, and boys. They learn a dance then compete to win!! Stripey encourages the children of all abilities and everyone feels a part of something special.

Does every child win a prize?2017-05-19T09:59:47+01:00

When it comes to party competitions Stripey Wipey – makes it fun, special, hilarious and enjoyable for everyone – even for those that do not win a prize on this turn. His experience means every child is involved.

At every event Stripey Wipey makes various prizes and gives them out to children as a prize, however only at a 2 hour birthday party does every child take a prize home made by Stripey Wipey.

THANKYOU,THANKYOU,THANKYOU

You were fantastic! You were everything I knew you would be and more. Lawrence had a great day, as did all
the other children (and parents)- the laughter didn’t stop from the moment you arrived.
Steve, my husband, says that the fact that you lived up to my expectations made you worth every penny!!! I’m
not too sure how to take that, but it’s definitely a compliment for you.
Grace, Lawrence’s little sister, loved her fairy princess wand- thanks again.
Hope to see you again.
Thank you. Best wishes

Subject: A Massive Thank You!!
Dear Stripey Wlpey
I am writing to thank you for making Isabel’s birthday party on Saturday the most amazing success. We all really
efioyed it, children and adults alike. Thank you for making Isabel feel so special on her birthday, it is a very
valuable and admirable talent to bond so quickly and easily with children of this age. You made the day very
special, so thank you. All the adults commented on how impressed they were with you and some have taken
your contact details. The children were all enamoured by you and are still talking about you, so you certainly did
something very right, the rabbit of course being the star of the show. As for me, all I can say is thank you for
making my life so much easier and taking control of the 25 children, enabling me to sort out food, parents, grand
parents ….
As promised I will email you the artwork from the invitation as soon as I receive the copy minus Isabel and I
would be very grateful if you could let me know how I can order a copy of your book. I saw it on the website the
other day and thought it would be lovely to buy a copy.
Thank you again and we hope to see you soon
Kind regards
Kate

Hi Stripey,

Christening on the 28th of June!

Just a note to say how fantastic we and everyone else thought you were on Sunday! There were some children who
are really intimidated by Entertainers and the parents of those children commented on how well you seemed at
encouraging them into the fun without them even knowing it. You really made the day special and lots of people have
asked for your details to use you for their own events!
Thank you again, I am sure that we will see you again very soon.

Just a quick message as I’m sitting listening to the helicopters overhead. Apparently the Big Match was changed
to tonight after all so Saturday would’ve been fine for the party. Still, at least Mrs Stripey Wlpey got her
Valentine’s afternoon with Him Indoors after all!!
Thanks again for helping to make Benny’s party go with a bang. He can be quite a tricky customer but you
handled him beautifully and I loved the way you gave those rubbing their smelly socks against the walls short
shrift too! All with plenty of belly laughs and some amazing balloon constructions to boot. I’m wondering if I can
book you in on a retainer every Saturday afternoon from now until the boys leave home?
Many thanks once again for all your help and Unremitting good humour
With all best wishes
Charlotte, Lightning McQueen Cake Maker ExtraOrdinaire.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make Bethan’s day special today. She really was the star of the show
and the kids loved it! I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for kids or adults as get the impression you’d
be great for grown ups too!
Regards
Sarah

Becca and Oliver2017-06-12T20:26:55+01:00

I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you again for coming to Oliver’s 5th birthday party and for
putting on such an amazing show. Oliver was SO happy and to see him giggle as much as he did was just
the best. All the children had a brilliant time and even the parents were hooked!
I am sure you will receive many requests for more shows from the other Mum’s who were at the party and
recommendations we all give to friends, they were all very impressed .
We wish you a happy and healthy new year and a BIG thank you again.
Becca and Oliver
