Childrens Birthday Party Entertainment in Leicestershire & Rutland

Jabberjacks Leicestershire & Rutland deliver childrens birthday party entertainment for parents, charities, christenings, weddings, private nursery schools and companies, individually tailored to children aged between 2 and 7 years old, ensuring all activities are aligned to the child's ability and enjoyment.

For 2, 3 and 4 year old children we have our Playmates Party which makes use of puppets and music with simple party games so that the children are always dancing around, singing or playing with toys.  The kids parties are extremely engaging and interactive and we make sure the activities change every few minutes to keep them engaged.  in fact many parents and grandparents often say that it is magical the way the children embrace the concept.

Our Juniors Party for 5, 6 and 7 year old children is much more up tempo than our Playmates party with its crazy dancing and party games delivered against a backdrop of the latest pop tracks.  Whilst enjoying the games the children get to choose their own prizes and fill up their personalised party bags to take home which they absolutely love.  You can be sure that the birthday child and their friends will go home happy and with big smiles on their faces!

We can work with party themes, make sure we include your child's favourite music, supply our branded party invitations and can deliver our entertainment at all kinds of venues of your choosing whether it be at a local hired hall, your garden (depending on the weather) or even at home with adequate room. 

A great hit at both our parties are the parachute games which we always play, at the end of the party, along with our unique Birthday Merry-go-round to finish off this special day for the birthday child.
