held our son's 5th birthday party on the last weekend in November this
year-just as the snow arrived! Gordon made the journey to our venue
despite the bad weather, which eventually took him around 2 hours, and
still arrived in time to set up and start the party at 10am as planned!
how committed he is to providing an excellent service and
is typical of the very high standard we experienced when dealing with
Gordon, from planning the party through to the day itself. He is very
totally focused on creating the best experience for the
birthday child and their friends.
He made our son feel really special and was so skilled at involving all of
the children in the fun! The magic and entertainment was of a high
standard-the children and adults had a ball!
So many parents have commented on how much their children enjoyed the
party, even those who normally don't participate in such events! Pirate
Pete was an invaluable addition to our Peter Pan party and meant that
could relax and share in more of the event, instead of being completely
Can't recommend Gordon highly enough-worth every penny!"

Isaac's 7th Birthday Party such a joyful event.

birthday boy. He was enthralled by the magic, the dancing, the music, the
fun and (well controlled!) mayhem! As ever, you made every moment fun,
and always involved Isaac.

your vocation. You have integrity and, in my opinion, a genuine love of what
remember the little boy whose mum had asked me to let you know how shy he
was, and that he certainly would not want to be asked to assist you......
what did I see an hour later, but that self same little boy eagerly jumping
to his feet and rushing up to help with the very tricky 'Plate Spinning'
his mum collected him, she was absolutely thrilled when I told her, and her
son just couldn't wait to tell her that HE HELPED PIRATE PETE!!
realised that you had been carefully gauging his reaction to you, to the
party, and had assessed that he was sufficiently relaxed to want to
help. I was very impressed, but not at all surprised, as this level of
sensitivity is what I have come to expect from you over the years you have
been doing parties for us.
has talked so much about his party, his constant refrain all weekend
was 'I was so happy when Pirate Pete was here' and on his return to school
today, he said that lots of his little friends had told him they loved the
party. Many of the mums have also thanked me for the party, and said that
their children had enjoyed every minute.

wants true quality and the presence of a genuinely gifted children's

his 5th Birthday Party. I didn't know that kids could be so well entertained
till you came along to our party. The kids were enthralled
and so well entertained it

were amazed at how you held the kids attention, my grandsons face was a

Giggles is one of the most energetic and enthusiastic children’s entertainer
I have ever met. He puts everything into each performance ensuring
every child is eager to be part of his action packed shows.
His ideas work because they have been honed to
perfection over many years of performing and his audiences just cannot get
enough. Listening to his young audiences describing their experience
after a show is uplifting. He is, in a word, a very
"Totally appropriate for age 4/5
years however the two 7 year olds and adults were also totally engrossed.
Excellent ability to relate to everyone in the audience. You have such
a lovely way with people and made the birthday girl feel very special.
I wouldn't consider using or recommending any others. I cannot
praise you enough. Molly received a wooden playhouse as well as
lots of lovely gifts from family and friends but when asked what she liked
best about her party replied "Pirate Pete" and continues to say this two
weeks after the party. I think this sums up Pirate Pete and how well
he went down.
Another parent who only caught the
last half hour of the party said "No matter what Pirate Pete cost he was
worth every penny" and I totally agree.
At first my hubby
thought that it as a lot to spend on a party but he too agreed it was worth
I cannot thank you enough for a wonderful, appropriate and traditional party
where all the children concentrated and laughed for two hours.
Thanks a million."
M Geddes, Blantyre, Lanarkshire, Scotland
"Pirate Pete offered a great variety of activities.
It was 2 hours of fun and totally stress free for
mummy and daddy. All of the children were engrossed in what
Pirate Pete was doing - his jokes were perfect for
their sense of humour - (the adults enjoyed it too!)
As a teacher I
have seen many children's shows but I have never seen anyone hold the
children's attention for 2 hours. Thank you - I have given your
card to the head teacher. I thought that Pirate Pete was great value for money
and have recommend him to
my friends and family.
Thank you very
much for helping to make Emily's 5th Birthday Party such a success.
She had a wonderful time with all her pirate friends and I am sure that she
will always remember the fun she had. Thanks again."
L and A Dick, Erskine, Scotland
"I first heard of you from a friend when I mentioned
that I was looking for a magician who was 'different from the norm'. The children were
enthralled by Pirate Pete's antics. I was concerned that the children
might not sit. How wrong I was.
The show was superb and completely different
from anything my children have seen. I feel the show was value
for money and although it is slightly more expensive than other entertainers
I have booked, the enthusiasm and professionalism was superb
and well worth
captured the children's imagination and attention from the moment he entered
the room and was still performing tricks for my son even when he was packing
his car to go home. 28 Children and 10 adults had a
fantastic day and this will be a party they will remember for a very long
time. It's just a pity I didn't know of you a few years ago!"
F Young, Larbert, near Falkirk, Scotland
"We first heard of Pirate Pete when our son came home
from a party begging for Pirate Pete to come to his
party. When calling to book Pirate Pete everything was clearly
explained, even the silly questions you forget to ask are all answered in a
I don't think that
we could have wished for the party to be any better than it was, everyone,
young and old really enjoyed it. I couldn't believe it when you
got my 11 year old cousin to join in wiggling his fingers as he's at the
stage when it's not "cool" to act silly!! Pirate
Pete is far better than any children's acts I've seen. Most other
shows tend to be the same old show but with a different entertainer.
I think that
everybody should book Pirate Pete or one of his
other characters. It's the best way to enjoy a stress free
party that everyone, young and old will enjoy and remember.
L Coyle, Port Glasgow, Inverclyde, Scotland
"Excellent value for money.
were captivated throughout the whole show.
Everyone (children and
adults) felt totally involved. Made our job so much easier.
Wizzi Wizard is by far the best that we have seen.
I would not consider using any other entertainer other
than Wizzi Wizard. We have seen him four times now and his shows
have been different every time. The man is a genius with
kids." J Kennedy, Clydebank, Glasgow, Scotland
"Pirate Pete's ability to relate to and involve his
audience is a great strength. Derek and I felt very strongly that Pirate Pete responded individually to
both Jacob and all the other children. This was NOT an "identikit" birthday
party or "identikit" entertainer. I have seen several
other children's entertainers and Pirate Pete was by
many, many times the BEST. Excellent value for
Part of any happy childhood is wonderful birthday
celebrations - but how often are they truly
wonderful? Answer - when the party is provided by Pirate Pete! From the moment Pirate Pete emerged from his car
until the moment he left, the children were captivated. The
warmth and sensitivity of you, Gordon, as a person, combined with the very
many years of experience, all filter through the fun
and energetic character of Pirate Pete added up to a truly fantastic party.
We have already
recommended you to everyone we know who might at any time require your
services - as I'm sure we will, again in the future. With
very best wishes, and many thanks once again." P and D Miller, Torrance, Glasgow, Scotland
"Wonderful, I was
amazed that Pirate Pete could keep the attention of 20 three and four year
olds for so long. I had 20 children and their parents in my house yet
when they left there was very little mess and everyone had a fantastic time
for two hours. I felt no stress and enjoyed the
party as much as anyone else. I recommend Pirate Pete to every mum and
J O'Donnell, Glasgow, Scotland
"Excellent. I could
not have wished for more. Excellent value for money
compared to previous entertainers. I can honestly say that you
are the better performer and the cheapest. We thought
the whole show was fantastic. Kids loved every minute of it and
were quite sad when you left. They wanted you back again the following
week for baby Ciaran's birthday so we all look forward to seeing you Mr
Giggles next year.
M Kane, Barrhead, Glasgow, Scotland
"Elissa will treasure the memories
of her sixth birthday party for ever. You made the party because
you were the party. I cannot thank you enough for a wonderful
time. Your service and follow up is second to none.
I have raved about you to everyone I know and wouldn't hesitate in
recommending you 100% to all our friends.
I thought the show was worth every
penny and my daughter and her friends still rave about it. It's true that you only get what you pay for, or in your case you get much
more. I cannot praise you enough. You jammed so
much into the two hours you were here and you were excellent value for
The Wizzi Wizard show is by far the best
I have ever seen. Wizzi Wizard is a born children's entertainer.
He knows exactly how to handle them and has a great rapport with kids and
adults alike. You manage to involve everyone.
Now that is magic!!"

party has been the most talked about party I’ve ever known. Parents
of children who are reluctant to talk about what they have done at a party
have been telling me their child has been very vocal and love Mr Giggles.
The children were
amazed by everything. You moved from one activity to the next
quickly and the pace of the party was just right. The
show was all about the kids. They were the main focus of the entire
show. They were always involved.
other shows the children simply sit and watch. Mr
Giggles ability to relate to and involve his audience was fantastic.
As a teacher I was very impressed with the way the
children responded to the show.
You pay for what you get!!
If you want a good quality show then it’s worth it. The price is good.
J Paton, Bearsden, Glasgow, Scotland
"Superb. You are the
best. Great Value. Quite expensive
for a kids party but worth every penny. All of the children felt very
involved. The wee girl next door kept bursting out laughing for
the next 24 hours. Russell (aged 4) said "I love Mr Giggles and he loves me!!
was just the best party ever."
C Tong, Milngavie, Glasgow, Scotland
"Absolutely spot on - for the
little ones and the older ones - well done. Compared
to others Pirate Pete is very, very good and we have booked a few!
Definitely the best. A lot of the adults have said to me after
the event that they were really impressed with Pirate Pete, and indeed the
whole experience. Thank you."
E Douglas, Cardonald, Glasgow, Scotland
"I had to e-mail you to say how
impressed I was today at Niamh's party. Not only was your costume and
set wonderful but from start to finish you captivated the children and they
participated fully in all of your show. Niamh was made to feel truly
magical and special and she
ran to us and said it was the best birthday party ever ! That is the biggest
birthday present we could ever have wished for her. I really can't thank you
enough, you have gave us and her magical memories of a special day and Ciara
her little sister was made to feel important too! You covered every wish I
could have had for the day. Thanks a million !
J Davidson, Newton Mearns, Glasgow, Scotland
"You captured the children's
attention and imagination the minute the party began - in fact before that,
when waiting on all the children to arrive. You worked
extremely hard and put a lot of preparation into your show. The result
was you gave Peter a wonderful 4th Birthday party to remember
and my husband
and I feel that we got value for money. Since
Peter's party, the children all continue to talk about it and the great fun
they had. You obviously have a great love of children and
enjoy what you do - this certainly comes across in your show. The
children were enthralled and captivated for the full two hours. From my
first contact I had with you I was always left feeling confident and having
no worries about the party. For that and also
making Peter's day so very, very special I cannot thank you enough. I
have passed your details to friends, nurseries and schools. I do hope
they book one of your shows and experience it for themselves."
J Currie, Fauldshouse, West Lothian, Scotland
"We were absolutely delighted with how beautifully smooth
Charlotte's party was - it was, to say the very least,
the easiest, non stressful party I have organised and everyone who
attended commented on your absolute professionalism and wonderful way with
children. Charlotte had a wonderful time and she
clearly felt very comfortable being the centre of attraction - not
something very easily achieved with my first-born! Thank you so very,
very much, for the care and attention you provided
and thank you for making my job and my husband's very, very easy on the day.

confidence before the show when Lewis assisted Pirate Pete set up.

Mr Giggles can relate much better (than other entertainers)

son's 4th birthday party completely mesmerised for 2
hours and managed to entertain the adults too.
