Why do you have time slots for Birthday Parties?
Krazy Kev is one of the most sort after Children's and Family Entertainer in the country. He has time slots to allow him enough time to get from one party to the next.
Times available are 10.15am, 11.15am, 1.15pm, 3.15pm or 5.15pm. These have been carefully thought out so your party runs smoother. For Example if you had 11.15am Krazy Kev would finish at 12.15pm for the children to have their lunch. If it was the 1.15pm slot they would have more of a snack at 2.15pm and so on. Krazy Kev is normally fully booked most weekends however on occasion there can be some flexibility depending on location etc.
Does Krazy Kev only offer 60 Minutes for Birthday Parties?
Some entertainers may offer longer but Krazy Kev offers just an exclusive 60 Minute STRESS FREE Package. Packed full of Fun, Crazy Games, Silly Party Dances and a Comedy Magic Show to finish!
How would you recommend I run my party?
The most typical party length is 2 hours. So for example you would invite guests for 10am, Krazy Kev starts at 10.15-11.15am then there is 45 minutes at the end leaving enough time for food and birthday cake, then allowing time for the children to have a little run around.
Others have their party for just 90 minutes so after Krazy Kev finishes there would only be 15 minutes at the end for you to do the Birthday Cake and give the children a drink / snack if you wish. It is also very common to have Krazy Kev entertain at the second part of the party. For example the child would arrive, have a little run around , have food and then Krazy Kev would entertain to finish your party.
Does the 60 Minute Birthday Party Packages have a break for food?
No the 60 Minute Package runs right the way through.
Should I ask my guests to arrive before my package start time?
