What we've done
Since we started Starkidz we have managed to make a lot of friends in the entertainment world and luckily been booked up and down the country for some amazing clients and adventures!
We have done many events working along side Cbeebies personalities so much so that a few of them are now firm friends of Starkidz and we to this day have an amazing working relationship. We have also enjoyed going on tour with our amazing friend Mr Yipadee! What a crazy adventure that was!
We love working with charities and have always loved to donate our time to any good cause, Cash for Kids and Walking with Giants and the Magic Yarn Project being firm favourites. Starkidz have also helped to raise thousands of pounds for various other charities including a team zip line off the Tyne bridge!
We also LOVE a good festival with more and more being added yearly! For the past 6 years we have provided fun entertainment at Glastonbury, which we adore! You can also find us at Little Fun Fest, Geronimo, Kendal Calling to name but a few!
Halloween, we just love working alongside the Southport bid and have put many shows, trick or treat walks and spooky goings on in our hometown.
Christmas wise we have provided fun shows and walkabouts for various light switch on’s including London Oxford Road, Leeds, Telford and Southport to name a few!
We enjoy entertaining at Leeds Christkindelmarkt German Christmas Market yearly, putting on shows and providing fun Christmas memories to many families.
Last Christmas we were lucky enough to provide five weeks of shows, elves for grottos and also working alongside our good friend Andy Day from Cbeebies and his odd socks band! We definitely needed a rest after that one!
We also help to provide lots of shows in various tea rooms, shopping centres, markets, restaurants, adventure parks and play centres, making sure that we are the number one choice in the Northwest for entertaining kiddies with our many themes.
Lastly we have managed to provide live slots on This Morning and taken part in a Guinness Book of Records attempt! Oh and did we mention we are award winning?
Jan. The girl that didn't grow up!
Its always been Jan’s dream to start a children’s party business, for as long as she can remember she has always enjoyed the more zany and silliness part of life, and also enjoyed acting like a big daft kid! She grew up believing in fairy tales and happily ever afters and remains determined to keep that magic alive!
Back in the real world Jan has worked in various schools and also worked with early years in a playgroup. She is also a breastfeeding councillor and enjoys helping new mums and babies at various groups. She is first aid trained and also fully CRB checked.
Most importantly she is a mum with two daughters and knows how important it is to make her children feel like the centre of the universe. The feelings she has for her own children is the driving force behind the unique and personal parties and she takes great care to ensure your child is the most important person in the world on their special day.
JAN HAS A BIG HEART AND IT’S WITH THIS GENUINE LOVE FOR CHILDREN THAT SHE WANTS TO BE MUCH MUCH MORE THAN JUST A PARTY BUSINESS.
STARKIDZ NOW HAVE A TEAM OF 20 EVER-GROWING TEAM MEMBERS, FROM PRINCESSES TO SUPERHEROS, PARTY HOSTS AND PIRATES! ALL ACTING LIKE THE REAL DEAL FROM START TO FINISH!
The StarKidz Team is made up of the creme de la creme of the talent pool. They are all fun, feisty and fabulous, from our pretty Princesses and silly Mascots, to the Party Hosts who never seem to run out of energy and ideas for hilarious games! All of the performers we hire, have a high level of professional training, and are note-perfect with their songs, know their stories inside out (vital when children are questioning you about your life!), and never fall out of character – even when shopping for lunch! We only have the best at StarKidz – and it shows!
