Chelsea Football Club"Your service for both our match day entertainment and Bridge Kids Xmas party was fantastically received by all Chelsea fans and certainly made every child feel very special. I felt you planned and executed perfectly everything that was required and you and your performers ably handled the impromptu situations that arose above and beyond what I expected. You and your team made it a great day for everyone and I would have no hesitation in recommending you and certainly will be top of the list for any future requirements. Thank you for your help with both events and I will be in touch as we do very impromptu things throughout the year. Thank you!"

Kane Curran, Marketing Executive, Chelsea Football Club

"We all thought you (JoJo) were very very good and we all enjoyed ourselves very much. The children all really liked you. We will definitely see you again next year. Thank you for all of your hard work planning the party games, decorations, party take home bags, activities and loot bags. Everything was superb."

"JoJo helped us make my son’s first birthday party a real success. The kids were captivated from start to finish. She is truly versatile – her singing, magic and face painting are all fantastic. We will definitely be using her again next year!"

Debbie Wosskow, London

"Dave really kept the kids amused for the whole time he was there. He had loads of tricks and kept their attention for ages. He used a variety of games including magic, balloon modelling and bubbles. Everyone had such fun including the younger ones. Excellent! Really impressed, very good value and lovely entertainer."

Yvonne Knight, London

"A great big thank you. Napoleon was amazing and the children absolutely loved him and the games he offered. The parents also thought that it was excellent. Napoleon was amazing at keeping the younger children occupied as well as the older ones. An absolutely amazing service provided. Well worth the money and great for younger children as well as older children. I would recommend this entertainment service to anyone who is having a children's party."

Janette, London

"Excellent! All of the entertainers completely identified with the group of children, capturing their attention from the outset. They tailored the activities extraordinarily well to the age, comprehension level and ability of the children. We have received great feedback from the teachers and parents of the children who attended. Without exception, all of the children had a fantastic time and it was a wonderful Christmas kick-of. From grabbing the kids attention with bubbles at the beginning, to the Christmas music, entertainment, ornament making and fun party bags, every element of the party was well thought through, which made the event an unmitigated success."

Mary Brown Sandys, Lord Mayoress Lord Mayor's Office, London

"Fantastic - the best entertainer I have seen in 17 years." (of JoJo)

Kate Sutherland, London

"Jojo had my daughter and all her friends entranced for an hour and a half and they and all the parents loved her."


"We chose JoJo because I saw her at a friend's son's birthday party last year and was really impressed. I've seen a lot of entertainers and JoJo has been the best of all of them. Thanks so much for making it such a fun and special day."
