What To Do If Your Christmas Entertainment Cancels? | Children's Christmas Parties
Updated: Aug 31
Christmas is less than a month away. If you haven't already secured your Christmas entertainment, now is definitely the time to do so. Most if not all children's entertainers are completely fully booked until January next year. At Non-Stop Kids we have bookings all the way into March 2023 and see it being our busiest year yet.
What Steps to Take if Your Christmas Entertainment Falls Through? | Children's Christmas Parties
For everyone who has secured their Christmas entertainment, that's great to hear! We hope you have a fantastic party, whether or not it's with us. But we wanted to take this time to offer advice on what to do if your Christmas entertainer has decided to cancel your booking and only decided to let you know at the last minute.
Why Would They Cancel?
There are several reasons why they might decide to do this. It's usually one man band entertainers who are likely to do this. There is a good chance they will have fallen ill, accepted a better gig or even have a family emergency. Because they work alone, there is no one else to cover their shift. It's why we recommend booking a national company like Non-Stop Kids. With over 100 entertainers on our team, we can easily accommodate you with another entertainer if your original one has to cancel for whatever reason.
This brings us to the main point of this blog. What do you do if you have been let down by your original Christmas entertainer. The first step is to not panic. Panicking will cause you to not think rationally and potentially make haste decisions. Once you have confirmed with your entertainer that they definitely cannot make their original booking, ask if they know any other entertainer who can take their place.
If they don't, go ahead and start searching for any other entertainment companies who are local to your area. They may have some availability. If you cannot find anyone who is local to you, the last thing you can try is to contact a national children's entertainment company. They have a large team available and will cover most if not all of the country. Check if they have any availability at all.
