"Just had the happiest party for my 5 year old and his 12 friends. Which his 3 year old brother also couldn't have loved more! Devon created a happy warm little party. No tears, no screaming overexcited kids, just a really happy laughing bunch. Everyone included equally, except the birthday boy who she made a fuss of in a really kind way.
Thank you to Devon, Hugely recommend."
Hayley, mum of Sacha, 5.
"Our son and daughter had a joint party at the wonderful new venue Brockwell Barn. Devon and Matt kept the kids utterly enthralled and thoroughly entertained for a full hour and a half (no mean feat - there were around 40 kids!) with their fabulous fairy/pirate double-act. I couldn't recommend them highly enough - in fact the children are still talking about Captain Smelly-Socks... The Barn worked perfectly for the event - it's very spacious and has a fully equipped kitchen, I suspect we will be attending a lot more events here in the future!"
Anna, mum of Alexander and Phoebe, 7 and 5.
"Wally was completely brilliant! Finn was laughing the entire time and he made him feel so important and special. He was great at keeping all their attention for the entire party (I honestly don't think one drifted!) and even managed to get the slightly shyer ones involved."
Laura, mum of Finn, 5.
"I cannot sing Wally and Gossamer's praises highly enough. We had Wally the Wizard for a joint five year old's party and it was the most amazing experience. From the very beginning Wally welcomed the children in and took control of the party taking them on a exciting and imaginative journey. There was story telling, a hunt, magic, games, balloon modelling and throughout the whole two hours the children were completely rapt. I've never had to do so little! Everybody needs Wally at their party - stress free, seamlessly organised and SO much fun. Get in there before they get booked up, I say!"
Emma, mum of Elliot and Phoebe, 5.
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! The girls haven't stopped talking about their party and all the silly things you guys did. They really and truly had the most magical birthday! Thank you for being amazing!"
Radha, mum of Ruby and Leela, 5.
"I had heard wonderful things about Wally the Wizard, my daughter has been talking about you for 12 months now, but yesterday you exceeded expectations. You engaged each individual child from their arrival. You worked with me to anticipate and control them through tea and you were masterful at moving them up and down the stairs! More than ten parents at the party complimented me on such a wonderful entertainer. Wally is really ideal for the mixed boy and girl audience!"
Julia, mum in Battersea.
"You were totally brilliant and we all loved it! Absolutely hysterical for both adults and kids and you kept the big group of mixed ages of children amazingly entertained for such a long time - seriously impressive!"
Ellie, mum of Alice, 4 and Suzanna, 2.
"Thank you so much for giving Esme a wonderful party – you were fabulous (and I can't imagine how you sustained that much energy for 2 hours) everyone loved you and you were also perfect at gently getting to know Esme and involving her."
Nicolette, mum of Esme, 4.
"The children ranged from 4 years to 10 and Wally did an excellent job of keeping them entertained for 2 hours. They thought he was hilarious and they all had a great time. I've recommended Wally to all my friends and will definitely be booking him again!"
Maddie, mum of Will, 7.
"We use Devon (Fairy Gossamer) for character events and we always get fantastic feedback from festivals, bookshops and schools! Devon does brilliant events that are great fun (even for the adults!) and hold the attention of even the very young children. She's also absolutely reliable and professional. I would absolutely recommend her and her events!"
