How much does it cost for Wayne Wonder to come to our Party?
This really depends on the service im providing and where the event is. Obviously booking me in Buckinghamshire (where I live) is not going to cost as much as it would to do a show in Birmingham. Just get in touch and I can provide pricing straight away.
How much notice do you need?
Typically eight weeks notice is about right but it changes all the time. The Christmas Season is obviously the busiest time of year and I am normally fully booked by the end of September. Saying this though we often get changes in bookings and the odd cancellation so no matter how last minute the booking is just get in touch, it cant hurt to try. Weekdays tend to be much more flexible than weekends.
How do I book Wayne Wonder?
Either give us a call, send an e-mail or fill in the contact form here to check availability. I will then answer any questions you may have and take a few more details. We then have a two step booking system. First you'll need to pay the £50.00 booking fee which is deducted from the overall cost of the entertainment and second I will e-mail over a PDF form as confirmation. Its as easy as that!
What's the Booking Fee?
The booking fee secures your booking and is a non-refundable fee to cover admin costs and other costs associated with preparing for a booking. It is deducted from the total cost of the entertainment fee and can be paid by either bank transfer, Pay Pal or cheque. The only instance where the booking fee may be refunded is when the performance is cancelled due to extreme weather.
How do I pay the remainder of the fee?
Payment for the balance of the fee is to be made on the day by either cash or cheque. You can pay the balance of the fee before the event if it makes your life easier by either bank transfer, Pay Pal or cheque.
Can other parents stay to watch?
Yes please do, I love it when other parents stay to watch, you'll often find them laughing just as much as the children. I find that with 3-5yr olds more parents will stay than with older children.
Do you have a limit on the number of children?
No, I've done parties for four children right up to five hundred children but I would recommend for a typical birthday party having more than 15 and less than 35. This bracket seems to be ideal.
How much space do you need?
As of May 2012 I'm not entirely sure as I am currently updating my entire set up and I'm not quite finished yet but I can say that I am very flexible. I do hundreds of house parties every year where you don't get as much space as a local hall but I can still fit in and provide an excellent party. Likewise if we have en entire hall than I can use all of my professional staging and all of my other big toys too!
Do I need to provide anything for you?
No, not really. I bring all of the equipment needed. The only things I do need are 45 minutes to set up, one plug socket and a parking space near to the entrance of the venue as I have a lot of big heavy equipment to unload.
Cancellations made within 10 working days of the scheduled performance are liable to the total entertainment fee as it would be impossible for me to replace this work. Cancellations made before this period will only loose the booking fee unless the cancellation is due to extreme weather. Cancellations can only be accepted by phone, voice messages and e-mails can not be accepted as I may miss them during peak periods.
Yes I do offer some discounts. These are only applicable to private individuals not schools, companies, government bodies or anything else.
£15.00 Repeat Booking Discount, if you have booked me before than you will get this discount off of any future bookings
£15.00 Weekday Discount, when you book me for shows on Mon-Fri (excludes December)
£10.00 Advanced Booking discount when you book more than six months in advance however a deposit will be required.
Hopefully this has answered a lot of your questions but please get in touch if I can help with anything else.

"Thank you for making Miguel's party a memorable one. You're great and the children love you. Ive receive comments from other parents that it was the best party they have ever been to and they all love your balloons" - Evelyn - Berkshire
"It was absolutely brilliant having you here, you managed to keep 30 children focused and entertained for the whole hour, leaving me and my family the chance to put the food on the tables (I even had chance to sit down and enjoy your show for a while!). That is a big task!
One of the things that captured my attention yesterday was how much you love your job. This not the just a job you do for a living, you genuinely give the impression you enjoy what you are doing" - Eva - Buckinghamshire
