Here are just a few of the thank you letters and emails I have received from delighted clients.

Hi John

I just wanted to say thank you again for entertaining everyone at my son's 5th birthday party. I am still amazed how you got them all sitting perfectly still and engaged for an hour and a half. It was lovely how you remembered every single child's name and you made each one of them feel so special. Your magic and comedy show was brilliant and your balloons were fantastic. I have had lots of compliments off parents saying how good you were with the children and how they and their child loved the party. You made Aidan feel so special and made a huge fuss of him. Every photo we took of him shows a beaming smile thanks to all your hard work. I will of course be booking you in future and I know my mum wants to book you for her school too. I have no doubt that you will also be getting bookings from the parents who attended. Thanks again for making my son's 5th birthday so special.

Just a quick email to say a massive THANK YOU for your amazing show on Saturday. We didn’t know what to expect before you came and just couldn’t imagine how anybody was going to get almost 20 5 year olds to sit still for 2 hours but by gum you managed it! I’ve had the pictures back today and the looks on the kids faces sums it up really. They were absolutely enthralled by you and your magic show and we really couldn’t have asked for anything better for James’ birthday. 

Once again thank you and rest assured we won’t have any hesitation in recommending you to family and friends.

Very best regards

Vicki, Steve (and James) Parsons

Dear John,

I just wanted to thank you so very much for giving Tommy and Grace (as well as all their friends of course) such a fantastic party! They really loved it and it finished off the big 10 birthday wonderfully. I must admit that we oldies loved it just as much...haven't laughed so hard in quite a while.


Sam(7) has everything organised in his head for his 8th....so I daresay i will be in touch again in the not too distant future!


with every good wish
Helen Keenan.

Hi, John

Just wanted to say a `huge Thankyou` for entertaining 44 kids on Saturday at my sons 6th birthday party.

I was so impressed with your show that I would highly recommend you to anyone, highly entertaining and fun.

My son was really, really pleased as were his friends.

Again Thankyou so much, you made the entertainment stress free!!

With very kind regards, Nicola Wilkinson


John was our resident magician on our "Polar Express" train for our

staff and their children in 2009.  The children absolutely loved

him.  He was an absolute professional at all times, at what can

often be a very tiring trip / event!  We will definitely be asking

him back, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough.  He helped to

make it a magical occasion for all the families!!

Just a quick note to say thank you for entertaining Natalie and her little friends so well yesterday she really had a great party.  It’s amazing to see how little ones will sit still for you.

Thanks again, Christine Cook

Dear John

I wanted to follow up from Saturday and thank you for helping make our event such a good one for our members – especially our younger ones and their hard-pressed parents!  I can tell you that the feedback I received about your show from that most critical of audiences – Katie – and her “Ugly Bump” was extremely complementary!

With kind regards – and our thanks again for Saturday

Dear John

Just a brief note to let you know how brilliant your 'Read a Million Words'

magic show was.  The children, from the oldest down to the youngest, were

thoroughly entertained with lots of laughs and audience participation

holding their attention.

We were also impressed with the professionalism of the show and with all

the sound effects and technical equipment.

We would like to say a big thank you for being a fantastic part of our

wedding day last Saturday at Rowton Hall. Everyone thought that you were

brilliant and the kids loved the balloons We will definitely be

recommending you to other people. 

Still trying to work out how that card got stuck to the ceiling!

Cheers and all the best

We've used John to help us promote SureStart Children Centres for a

few years now  - both at events and for promotions in shopping centres

and town centres. He's always proved a hit with children and families

and we've found its a great way of attracting our target audience. As

well as keeping the children entertained he's able to build up a rapport

with parents too, which helps us get our message across in a friendly

and way. On a personal note, I've always found him to be reliable and

Dear John,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for your efforts at Saturday’s event.

I don’t need to tell you – but you were a HUGE hit with the children.

 Our Chief Executive passed comment about the great performance you put on, so thanks again.

Kindest regards,

Take care!

Sally and all your friends from Saint Pascal Baylon!


I have worked with John Harding since 2004, hiring him to entertain children and their families at many events, from the beginning of the Sure Start programme in Southport. He has always provided a highly professional service, one that has always been enjoyed by parents and children alike, and he has always adapted his show according to our needs, and to the children’s needs that have attended these events.

Some of the events he has supported include open day launch of Linaker Primary Children’s Centre and Butterflies Children’s Centre, Teddy Bears Picnic, Immunisation Clinic, 4 Christmas Events and several smaller events. 

John is always punctual, polite, well organised and the activities flow naturally during his performance. He engages the attention of children and their parents with ease and the sound of laughter fills the room. I would highly recommend him to entertain your families during large or small celebrations.

Kind regards

Karen Tarjomi, Butterflies Children’s Centre
