Does The Thought Of Having A Gang Of Children Let Loose In Your House Scare The Wits Out Of You?

There Is No Need To Fear, Read Through What We Have To Offer And Discover What It Is Like To Have A Truly Painless Party


For many parents running children's parties can be a daunting event. The idea of twenty or thirty screaming children running amok sends shivers down the spine of many parents. Fathers have been known to abandon the home at the crack of dawn and not return until the last of the little darlings have left.

No Need To Fear

Inviting large numbers of children into your home can be very off-putting. Especially when they will be there for a few hours! There are ways of controlling the children and having truly the easiest, stress-free most enjoyable party at the same time.

Eliminate boredom

The main reason children become a nuisance is because boredom sets in. When boredom sets in children invent many ways to cure it - many of which are to the detriment of your party not to mention your home. The secret remedy for boredom is to fully engage the children with professional entertainment. Our packages are designed and performed in such a way to totally involve all the children all the time.  Thus eliminating boredom and in turn safeguarding your party and your home.

Don't Make This Mistake

Many people make the mistake of saying "they're just children, as long as something is happening they'll stay occupied". This is absolutely the wrong the mindset to have. The hardest audience to entertain are children. If you are not up to par they are gonna let you know and most times will lose interest and subsequently begin to become troublesome and disinterested causing chaos at your party.

General Questions

How come your called Billy Bubbles?  Isn't that a bit of an odd name for a grown man to have?  Well, yes it is.  Brendan is Billy’s actual name.  He originally studied and served an apprenticeship under one of the worlds foremost children's entertainers who in turn acted as an agent for Billy in the early years.  To protect his investment in Brendan he licensed the name Billy Bubbles to him to use.  By the time Brendan took over the operation the name had become too well known in its own niche to abandon it.  And so he continues to perform under this alter ego.

Is Billy really as good as your site makes out?  In short, yes he is.  Over 80% of his booking are either repeat customers or direct referrals.  This does not happen if you are sub-standard.  He stands by his shows 100% and guarantees that the overwhelming majority of your guests will be thoroughly delighted by his entertainment.

Billy and Abracadabra Entertainments (our parent entity) are market leaders when it comes to children's entertainment and particularly birthday parties.  As a result we suffer a little from other entertainers jumping on the bandwagon and coming up with similar names, website content, ideas and show packages the world over.  This kind of occurrence reminds us that "imitation is the greatest form of flattery" and indicates the high regard we are held in not only among the public but also within the magic and entertainment community.

What do I need to provide you with?  Nothing.  Billy is totally self contained and requires nothing more then the area the show will take place in and of course an audience...oh and maybe a cup of coffee. 

Children's Birthday Party Questions

What kind of space do you need?  Billy usually set his show up in the living room, typically in front of the window that looks out onto the garden and the children sit on the floor in front of us.  When he runs the whole party the living room is used for the entertainment and the dining room or kitchen for the food and birthday cake.  Most average sized houses will accommodate up to 25 children and his show in the living room.

Can you do your shows outdoors?  While Billy does have a special outdoor show for festivals and family fun days all his birthday shows are always indoors.  At birthday parties there are too many distractions and potentially dangerous situations that can arise outdoors.  For instance, a bee decides to attack a child half way through the show or a child picks up some grass and throws it...suddenly you have 25 little darlings having the mother of all grass fights.  This does not happen at our outdoor festival shows as the children are not well acquainted with each other and do not copy what another child does.  Put this together with the potential for a rain shower, sunburn for the children and performer and the many other variables that come with outdoor parties it is easy to see that for your party to be it's most successful it is far better to opt for an indoor event.

We are considering hiring a hall for our party,  do you come to hired venues?  Yes absolutely.  Do bear in mind however that the acoustics in halls and leisure centres are dreadful and you really do not get the full atmosphere of an intimate home party.  Many people hire such venues because they are nervous about having so many children in their homes.  Given the way in which Billy runs the entire party for you there is no need to worry about this as he ensures to keep all the children totally engrossed in his show, therefore eliminating boredom and in turn nullifying the risk of guests running amok in you house.  This also saves you on room hire costs.

Can we take photographs and video of the performance?  Photographs are a great way to ensure your party lives on in the memory of the birthday child and Billy encourages you to take lots of photos for your own personal use.  In fact why not send Billy a few.  Just call him on +353 86 2231 890 and he'll tell you where to send them.

Billy does allow a short segment of video to be taken when the birthday child is "onstage" helping the magician.  Just have a quiet word with Billy before the entertainment begins as to where and when is the correct moment for you to use your video camera.  We thank you in advance for your consideration and understanding in this matter.

What goes into the party bags?  Each child gets 4 or 5 novelties.  The kind of neat junk we all loved as children.  Depending on the age group of the party and the gender of those attending we have age and gender related toys. In addition to the toys we include some cool fun/educational make and do items and usually a magic booklet which teaches the children some easy to do magic tricks.  We do not put food or sweets in our party bags as children usually have plenty of that at a party.  If you would like to add some sweets into the bags you can do that on the day.

How many children can attend the party?  The average size for a party is about 20 children.  Billy needs a minimum of 7-8 children attending to generate an atmosphere.  Upward of that the sky is the limit.  Once you have enough space he has no problem with how many guests arrive.  Believe it or not he has performed at many private birthday parties - in houses - where there have been in excess of 50 children.  Controlling the attention of children is not a problem for him no matter how many there are.  In fact you should probably kick back, relax, enjoy a well deserved glass of you favourite tipple and join the children in watching Ireland's Top Children's Entertainer.  You and your guests are in the hands of a true professional.
