I'm sure we've all heard the nightmare stories about characters turning up and behaving rudely, out of character and not even in full costume so it really is important to go on personal recommendation. With that in mind I wanted to write a post about our recent experience with Hopscotch Entertainment. Not only do Hopscotch offer children's party services but they provide theatrical party's too. So when we popped along to Minion Madness at Wallsend Memorial Hall I knew we were in for a treat.
We got there just as things we're getting started and arrived to a hall filled with excited children and parents who were ... Looking quite relaxed sitting in chairs around the room!!! What is this? entertainment by someone in a contained area!!! It's like a parents dream!
We got straight in to making minion masks, which were prepared in advance so we just needed to put all the pieces together. Then we took part in the minion parade!
There followed party games, dancing, characters, an assault course biscuits and juice more dancing and games, a brilliant theatrical finishing touch and then party bags at home time, all assisted by around 7 members of staff plus the main attraction of 2 Minions who were joined by Bumble Bee and Pocahontas all of whom danced, sang and played along with all the activities.
My kids were so happy to join in with everything and we spent more than two hours being entertained by Hopscotch who couldn't do enough to ensure everyone had fun and stayed safe. I was genuinely overwhelmed with the amount of staff about to help out, the constant stream of entertainment and the quality of the event you can really tell these guys have a professional theatre background.
