Hi! I'm Andy Hiccup. I'm a fun, friendly childrens entertainer and childrens magician for birthday parties and other family events. I'd love to come and entertain for you whatever the occasion, and I cover most of Surrey, Sussex, South London and Kent (and some of Berkshire, Hants and Essex too!)

Childrens birthday parties and other events - Andy Hiccup is a delight to have at any child’s party or other family event. He will astound with a full fun fantastic comedy magic show, amaze with balloon modelling, host games and dancing, entertain with puppets, thrill with close up magic for kids, and will provide so much joy and hilarity that your child’s birthday really will be the best day ever.

Amazing magic shows - Andy Hiccup entertains with exciting fast-paced fun shows for schools, company events, festivals, family events or any other occasion. Magic shows can be of any duration, and can be either one-off shows or repeated throughout the day.

Walkabout entertainment - wonderful roaming magic and balloon modelling for both outdoor and indoor events.

As well as children's birthday parties Andy also entertains at schools, nurseries, corporate events, holiday clubs, resorts, pubs, company parties, village halls, summer and Christmas events, libraries, festivals, fetes, housing associations and all other types of event.

Andy has different amazing magic shows and routines for all kinds of audiences. His magic for younger children is jolly and colourful, his magic for older children is edgy and daring, and many of his routines appeal to all ages.

You, your child and all their friends are going to love Andy Hiccup's fun birthday party entertainment.

Andy's birthday party
magic show is filled with fantastic fun routines that will make your party children laugh out loud from start to finish. His shows have tons of visual comedy, he gets helpers up at every opportunity to help him (though he never forces them to if they are shy) and the whole audience is invited to help him in a variety of fun creative ways.

At a party, as well as his magic show, Andy also entertains with a variety of
cheeky puppets - his magic mice, Bobbin the Raccoon and Stinky Bird. Remember, never feed Stinky Bird cheese or it may give him a funny tummy and he might start laying eggs everywhere!

He also organises a super session of exciting
party games and dancing, and he performs close-up magic for children of all ages and often circus skills too.

As an optional extra he also delights with his
balloon modelling; he can make most animals, and also dinosaurs, dragons, flowers, magic wands, swords, aliens and loads of silly hats.

Andy Hiccup explains his different party packages:

A FULL TWO HOUR PARTY


The first hour: A few welcoming magic tricks, hat tricks and giggles for the children as they arrive, then we sit down for a short interactive puppet show with my magic mice and Stinky the Bird. After the puppet show we play an active party game together and then it’s time for my exciting comedy magic show (with loads of fun, silly comedy, audience participation and impressive magic). The magic show is usually 40 - 45 minutes long.

The second hour: Usually there is party food served after the first hour of a party and, after a quick five minute break to pack away the magic show, I entertain with “tricks round the tables” which very appropriately also includes tricks with food; salt, pepper, ketchup, fruit, eggs, sweets, all of which I provide myself, ideal for all ages, and none of it messy.

NB. If there is no birthday food in the middle it doesn't matter at all, I just carry on with games and other exciting stuff straight after the magic show.

I will happily lead the singing of “Happy Birthday” when the birthday cake appears unless you wish to do it yourself.

Once I see most of the children are down from the tables I launch into a super session of party games, and I provide my own quality music speaker system for this. I finish off with a super scintillating circus-style plate spinning routine with all the children and at the very end of the party I orchestrate a big cheer for the birthday child and a fond farewell.

A ONE AND A HALF HOUR PARTY

The first hour: A few welcoming magic tricks, hat tricks and giggles for the children as they arrive, then we sit down for a short interactive puppet show with my magic mice and Stinky the Bird. After the puppet show we play an active party game together and then it’s time for my exciting comedy magic show (with loads of fun, silly comedy, audience participation and impressive magic). The magic show is usually 40 - 45 minutes long.

The last half hour: Either half an hour of super party games and plate spinning or, if the children are sitting down to eat food at this time, then I entertain with tricks round the tables first and then finish of with a couple of great party games once they have got down from the tables.

A ONE HOUR PARTY

For a one hour party you can have a choice of:

•  The puppet show followed by a party game and then a 45 minute magic show (this is what I most recommend)
•  A full fun fantastic one hour magic show.
• A 45 minute magic show followed by 15 minutes of amazing games.
•  If there are fifteen children or fewer, I can then perform a 45 minute magic show and there will be time enough to make them all a splendid balloon model each at the end.

(NB. on weekend days one hour parties are not available between 1pm and 6.30pm)

OPTIONAL EXTRA:
BALLOON MODELLING


In a two hour party I do the balloon modelling instead of having the tricks at the tables and if there is not enough time to make them all during food then I finish them off at the very end of the party.

For a ninety minute party I do the balloon modelling during the last half hour of the party,
either while the children are eating or while I play music for them to dance and run around to. If there are only a few children to make balloon models for we can play party games afterwards too.
