* Which characters could I book for my party?
We are currently taking bookings for each of the characters mentioned on our 'Characters' page.
However, if your child's favourite character isn't listed, please let us know and we will see what we can do!
* What do your visits involve?
Please refer to our 'Packages' page to see the standard options you can select from. If there is nothing
that quite fits what you are looking for just send us a quick message and we shall create a personalised
package just for you.
* Which areas do you cover?
Our characters are happy to travel anywhere! We are based on the Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border,
but we have performed at parties and events all over the UK. A small travel fee is payable for any events
more than 20 miles away from our base.
* Do you provide any party extras?
We can certainly provide extras such as a cake, balloons, party bags etc, at an additional cost. Let us know
your requirements when you fill out our contact form. We can also recommend some lovely companies
who can provide these services for you if we can't. Please take a look at our 'planning' page.
* How far in advance should I book?
The earlier the better! Certain days, particularly weekends, tend to get booked up quite quickly. We
recommend booking 6-8 weeks in advance to have the best chance of securing the character you want
at the desired time and date.
* What ages do you cater for?
We can cater for any age, but find that children aged 3 - 7 years old works best for a princess party, and ages 4 - 8 work best for our pirate parties.
* Can boys join in with the party fun at your princess or fairy parties?
Absolutely! Do remember that little Princes or Pirates are very welcome too, let us know in advance if there will be a mixture of boys and girls so we are able to offer activities and games for the whole group to enjoy. We also offer princes, pirates and superheros for you to book too!
* How do I make a booking?
You can contact Emmabelle's Princess Parties by phone, email, Facebook or through our contact form on this website. Once we have spoken about your needs you will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit equal to 50% of your chosen package price to secure your chosen date, time and characters.
Final payment is then due no later than one week before the start of your party. All payments can be made by PayPal or bank transfer.
* Can the characters perform outdoors?
Certainly! Although we do ask that you have an indoor space available in case of inclement or exceedingly hot or cold weather. If the party is held outside, please provide a shaded area for our performers.
* Does an adult need to be present during the party?
Yes, we do require at least one adult to be present at all times during the party. Sometimes parental intervention may be needed if one of the children needs assistance or becomes disruptive, this will allow us to keep the party running smoothly for the other children.
*How can I best prepare for the arrival of the character?
It is recommended that the other party guests arrive 10-20 minutes before the arrival of your booked character, this will ensure nobody misses out on the fun! At the party all the performer needs is a clear space for her/him and the children to sit in for story time and sing-a-longs. For crafts and make overs we request an area with a table and chairs. If you have a tea party included in your package we ask that you have a table and enough chairs for everyone.
* Do your characters visit other venues besides houses?
Of course! We can travel to wherever your party is located. Do check if your venue has any entertainment restrictions though, particularly if it will be taking place outdoors. As of yet we do not use our own venue to host, but if you did need assistance in finding the perfect venue, we can certainly help you with that!
* Are your party packages just for birthdays?
Character visits are perfect for nearly any occassion! Birthday parties are definitely the most popular events we perform at, but our characters are available for various other events and locations such as hospitals, libraries, schools, weddings, christenings and much more! If you would like to schedule a custom appearance, such as a classroom visit for storytime or you would like princess presence at charity event, just contact us to make arrangements.
If you do have any questions which are not covered here, please contact us for further information, we will be happy to help!
