School Shows

What We Do

Every year we entertain at dozens of Schools, Nurseries and Pre-Schools and we'd be delighted to come and entertain at yours.

Our busiest times for School shows is during the run up to the summer holidays where we are hired as an attendance reward, school fete or general treat and during December as an end of year treat. Pre-schools often ask us to entertain as part of the 'graduation' celebrations, typically during July,for the children going to 'big school/nursery' and is very popular.

Our Magic & Puppet Shows are packed with silliness and fun plus loads of amazing magic and are suitable for all ages. We cater for everyone from the Tiny Totts up to the 11 year olds and mixed ages are not a problem either. There is NO maximum number restriction for watching our shows

How Much?

Our fee is dependant on What you want, When, Where and for How Long. We prefer to discuss your requirements with you so that we can recommend the best options and calculate accurate quotes for you. Please get in touch for a friendly ‘no obligation’ chat.

Primary Schools

For primary schools the Simon Sparkles Magic & Laughter Show is ideal because it's suitable for all ages. We can easily entertain the whole school of children aged 4-11 years old, mixed ages are no problem and there's no maximum numbers on the audience size. This fun packed show runs for approx 40mins and is packed with fun, comedy and amazing magic.

Nursery & Pre-Schools

For this age group we have specific Magic & Puppet Shows and we offer 2 main options:

Option 1
Magic & Puppet Fun Show

The show runs for approximately 40mins and is packed with silliness, magic and fun. It features Simon Sparkles and his cheeky puppet ‘Chip’ The Naughty Seagull. The show is very interactive with lots of audience participation. There is no maximum number of children to watch the show.

Option 2
Magic & Puppet Fun Show 

PLUS Balloon Twisting

The same show as above followed by Simon Sparkles making a special balloon made for each child. Approximate running time 40mins plus however long it takes to make the balloons (typically 15/20mins extra). This balloon option is only suitable for an audience of around 30/40 children at each session due to the amount of time allowed for balloon twisting. 

Fetes & Events

We entertain at lots of schools fetes so we know what works well. There are a few options available based on your requirements and budget and we are reasonably flexible too, so if none of the following suggestions meet your requirements or budget please let us know and we can work together to try and find a solution. Here's what we offer:

Static Magic Show(s)

The Simon Sparkles Magic & Laughter Show is suitable for all ages and can be performed either inside or outdoors (weather dependant). At events such as fetes we suggest either one main show or several mini shows. These can be free to everyone or charged as an extra ticketed attraction

Walkabout Magic

Simon can entertain the crowds with Mix & Mingle Magic performing close-up magic such as card tricks etc. A bit like Dynamo but live!
