ABRACADABRA! With an endless repertoire of zany jokes, magic and circus skills, Barney Bay is the perfect entertainer for children of all ages. Younger children love Barney's colourful magic show and slapstick comedy, while older children delight as they assist Barney in his crazy antics and become part of the circus extravaganza.

For Children's Birthday Parties, Barney Bay offers three standard party packages (as well as a bespoke service):

COMEDY CIRCUS SKILLS AND MAGIC SHOW (45 mins): Barney's colourful and visual show includes magic, balloon animals, juggling, unicycle (space permitting), plate-spinning, yoyo, diabolo and oodles of fun and participation. Children are reduced to hysterics as Barney muddles and struggles through his party tricks, but don't worry kids - he usually gets it right in the end!

TWO-HOUR PARTY (ages 5+): the children arrive to a plate-spinning workshop and music, and then sit down to enjoy Barney's amazing show (as above). And then after tea (the only part you have to worry about) you can relax as Barney organises games to music and a limbo-dancing competition.

CIRCUS WORKSHOP PARTY (ages 7+): up to 30 children at once can try their hand at plate-spinning, diabolo, juggling and more. Barney rounds off the hour-long session with a short Children's Birthday Party show. Click here to find out more.

Bournemouth-based Barney Bay has performed for playgroups, schools, Holiday Centres and Children's Birthday Parties along the South Coast since barely out of childhood himself, and is now firmly established as a children's favourite throughout Bournemouth, Poole, Dorset and beyond.

Wacky children's entertainer extraordinaire

"Thanks so much for yesterday at Canford. Your show really, really made the day - it was spot on and everyone young and old alike so enjoyed it. It was just perfect! Best wishes,"

"Thankyou for providing the wonderful two-hour entertainment at Alexander's party. Everyone present, from the tiny tots to adults has remarked on how enjoyable the show was and has described you as "Absolutely Brilliant." Even two non-English speaking children could understand much of the humour and their new favourite word is "Sausages!" "

"The children thoroughly enjoyed your fun, games and tricks, as indeed did the adults present. To provide entertainment for nearly ninety children of varying ages for two and a half hours was some feat, but you managed it with children laughing and enjoying themselves."

"A very big thankyou for making such an impact on Charlotte's Party. Not only was your routine very impressive but Charlotte is already asking if you can come along to her next party. She likes the idea of learning circus skills. We were both impressed with your professionalism prior to the party and also the way you could control the children and of course, make them laugh. Fabulous. Thankyou again,"
