Hello my name is Angela and I'm the owner of Jabberjacks South Derbyshire franchise and I'm proud to say that we're the area's best loved children's birthday party entertainment and baby and toddler activity class provider.

I began my Jabberjacks career in 2015 as a Birthday Party Leader for the Leicestershire franchise whilst studying at De Montfort University in Leicester. After graduating with a BA Hons in Dance, I moved back home to the area and loved Jabberjacks so much that I decided to take over the South Derbyshire Franchise.  

I deliver children's parties in Derby, Ilkeston, Long Eaton, Kegworth, Repton, Mickleover and everywhere in between. I am also running my baby and toddler activity classes in Shardlow and Ockbrook & Borrowash.

To check availability and prices, please contact me either by phone on 07712 275679 or by completing the form on the right of this page or if your child is Under 5 then please take a look at our activity classes.

    Great feedback from happy mum Sara, Angela did the party on behalf of Jabberjacks Leicestershire and Lily and her friends had 'the best party ever' Thank you for the most amazing birthday party last Friday. Angela was beyond words - professional, engaging, fun, fantastic. The list goes on. The children adored the party and Angela held their attention the entire time. It was so structured and not once did the party feel out of control. All the parents keep telling me how much they enjoyed it and are considering you for their younger children’s parties." Lily aged 6 May 2018

    Lovely text following a 5 year old party I did at the weekend "Just wanted to say a massive thank you for Aishling's party, Ruby and Oscar had a fantastic time and if the truth be known so did I, you were great and I would highly recommend you xx" Received Sunday 15th April 2018

    Lovely review from a 3 year old party "What a super party! Angela you are truly talented and captivated the children the entire time! Ava loved every minute of it! Definitely one of the best entertainers that I’ve seen! Lots of love from a very happy Mommy" December 2017

    Even better, emailed Mum Davinia "Just to say thanks so much for today.  We have been to a Jabberjacks party before so knew it should be good but you were even better.  Thankyou again for the wonderful day. Davinia and a very happy birthday boy x" 2 year old party in Mickleover on Saturday 9th December 2017

    Lovely 5 star review on Facebook about #Jabberjacks #classes "My son and I absolutely love Jabberjacks. My son loves the anticipation of waiting to see what is in the box each week. The class is always exciting and hands on which my little boy loves! In the 4 weeks that we have been going, I have already seen my sons confidence grow tremendously. He's now vocal during the classes and joins in with everything with a huge smile on his face. The class encourages great listening skills and the 'sharing time' is also a fantastic way of introducing toddlers to the concept of sharing and using manners! Angela is a lovely class leader with heaps of enthusiasm. She is very welcoming and gives lots of praise to the children throughout the session! A highly recommended class, we love it! Katie Victoria 6th October 2017

    Thank you so much Angela for doing Rita's party - it was brilliant.  The children and parents thought you were very good." Rita celebrated her 4th birthday on 26th August 2017.

    "We had a super day and I wish to send Angela a huge thank you. She made it as easy as it could be for us and Lina and her friends to have a fun time and she was very approachable, natural, calm, punctual and from the moment she arrived I felt very confident we could leave everything to her. In short I have no criticisms at all. Other parents were also very complimentary. We hope to be in touch again for Lina and our youngest daughter (when she is 3) for more parties." Lina celebrated her 5th birthday on 23rd July 2017 in Chester Green Community Centre

    All the children were involved said Mum, Laura Curry "Hi Jackie, we all had such a great time. It was lovely to see all the children getting involved. Angela had such a nice way with the children and was very professional, recognising when to change activity and getting all the children to join in. Please pass our thanks onto her." April's 3rd birthday was on 1st April 2017 at Dalbury Lees Village Hall.
    4th birthday party

Angela was brilliant at keeping all the children entertained and she really encouraged great behaviour." Alethea celebrated her 3rd birthday in Darley Abbey on 15th April 2017
    A lovely recommendation from Mum Emma "We would like to say a big thank you for doing our daughters Mias 4th birthday party, it just went brilliantly, Angela the host was just amazing and the parents thought she was brilliant too, as I had children of all ages from 2 years to 10 years she got them all involved, she does something all the time and it doesn't get boring for the children, the children loved it and had such an amazing time, the children were going on about it for a while, they all loved the punch balls that were handed out at the end, would definitely recommend to my friends for them to use Jabberjacks." Mia held her birthday party on 4th February at Little Poppy's Pre-School
    Caroline emailed to say "The party went really thank you, we were really happy with Angela, just felt awful that I didn't offer her anything to drink or eat! She arrived at the venue before us, promptly half an hour before the party was due to start as you advised, typically we were a little late as had to nip to the shop! She set up really quickly while we were trying to get ourselves organised and she was ready to meet the kids as they arrived. From the moment she started the entertainment all of the kids were engaged and having a great time.Several parents said that they had never seen 'jabberjacks' before and were really impressed.  The entertainment surpassed my expectations and my family were all very impressed with Angela.Thank you for a great service." William celebrated his 5th birthday at Holbrook C of E Primary school in Belper on 22nd January2017.
    Thank you Caroline for this delightful voicemail message about your son's birthday party “I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the party Angela did for him yesterday.  It was absolutely amazing, it really was.  I mean we have had entertainers ever since Edward was a year old but we have to say that was the best entertainment that we’ve ever seen.  It was just absolutely amazing.  And all the parents loved it, you had so many positive comments and feedback.  A lot of the parents were sort of asking all about Jabberjacks but I noticed there was a little card in the party bag so I did mention to the parents that if they wanted to book you the card and all the details would be in the little party bag.  So I just wanted to say thank you once again.  We did thank Angela personally but it was so busy clearing up when all the children had gone, as you can imagine, that we didn’t really feel that we did her justice, but she was just amazing with the children.  She really was.  So thank you so much. I think we will probably be booking you next year as well.  Thank you once again for all your hard work, the theme of Stars Wars was amazing and she did so many amazing games, so thank you once again.” Edward celebrated his 5th birthday in Spondon on 15th February 2016 delivered by Leicestershire Territory

    We met Karen in late 2012 after she enquired about attending one of our local Discovery Day's. Karen is a former primary school teacher and was looking in a local publication Lots For Tots, when she came across our advert.

    Karen had made the decision not to return to teaching after the birth of her 2nd daughter and was looking for something that would fit around family life but still give her an opportunity to work with children.
