What To Look For In A Kids Entertainer | Children's Entertainment

Updated: Aug 31, 2023

It's 2022! A brand new year has begun and you know what that means. Lots of children's entertainment awaits. To kick off this year with lots of positivity and amazing parties, we're going to tell you everything you should look for in a kids entertainer. As the largest children's entertainment in the UK, it's safe to say we know a thing or two about entertaining children.

Qualities to Seek in a Children's Entertainer | Children's Entertainment

Kids entertainers take on many responsibilities. Their role is to display many good characteristic traits that appeal to both the parents and the children. You want someone professional and dedicated to their job, but also have that fun and quirky personality everyone can appreciate.

Someone Who Knows Their Audience!

There's nothing worse than an entertainer who doesn't understand their audience. An entertainer should have all the qualities to captivate the interest of their audience, knowing how to bounce off their reactions. It's one thing to be able to perform, but if the entertainer sounds bored and disinterested in the show, so will their audience. Make sure your entertainer understands the group they are performing for and makes them the centre of attention.


We all need good confidence to perform our duties successfully. Children's entertainment is no different. The confidence they carry allows them to really shine throughout the performance. This is especially crucial when you are dealing with problematic situations. An entertainer who can present themselves accurately and confidently will shine through and give off that positive aura.

Have Lots Of Energy!

The last thing you want to see is a kids entertainer who is half asleep. Carrying high energy is really important as it will help keep the kids on their feet and dancing around. As a parent you will understand how short the attention span of a child is. It's very easy for them to become disinterested in something very quickly if it doesn't appeal to them. Maintaining high energy levels will keep all of the kids intrigued.


Being a professional is important, but we also encourage entertainers to have that little bit of weirdness to them. It has a surprisingly good effect on people. It helps the kids connect with someone sharing similar personality traits and allows the entertainer to be their true quirky selves. Everyone will be enticed by the entertainer as well as become comfortable in their presence.
