About Peanuts Parties

Peanut provides a range of activities for your child's special day - bubbles, games, funny clown show (no makeup), have-a-go at circus skills, face painting, balloons - and if they want - I will create a full on circus show for the party which includes singing, a parade, a chance for the children to show what tricks they've learned - or - a dancing competition mixed with juggling - or just lots of games!

Peanut has worked for royalty, television, businesses large and small, for hundreds of schools and over the years he has performed for over half a million children! He has had two TV documentaries done on his work and has appeared in dozens of newspapers and magazines. He is the founder of Leeds Children's Circus which is an educational charity established in 1989 to teach circus to inner city children in Leeds. Peanut was made a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 1995 for his charitable work. He is also a graduate of Common Purpose UK and the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.

Peanut aims to create a happy memory for everybody at the party and to take the stress out of the event for the parents! He is happy to adapt to any special wishes and loves working across the age range. the ability range and the diversity of cultures.

He is (of course) DBS police checked, insured, risk assessed, a full Equity member (for twenty years) and ... has never had a complaint or missed a party! Ring him for a friendly chat about how to take the stress out of having fun!

Typical Clients

Peanut's Parties has worked for hundreds of families, schools, community events and corporate and private parties over a twenty year career. He has worked for royalty and some of the poorest communities in the UK and in Europe. He also teaches mindfulness to children in schools. But it is his parties that are most special - christenings and weddings are his favourites because they are such family celebrations - but he also works for community groups, businesses, schools and one off charity events too!

Brilliant service!

Peanut Pete was great and our daughter loved her 'Greatest Showman' themed party! The circus themed activities kept all 40 children entertained for 2 hours and there was even time for face painting. Peanut Pete was great at keeping the children interested and having fun, and catered for all ages from the youngest of around 2 years old, up to age 8. We would definitely recommend Peanut Parties!

The kids loved him!

Peanut was a great entertainer. The children at the party ranged from 1yr to 8yrs and they all loved him.
At times he was a little hard to hear because of the type of room we were in but he still managed to engage all the children in the activities.
The children loved his face painting skills and the circus equipment that he brought kept them entertained.
Good value for money

Fantastic for a 5 year old's party

Peanut was brilliant. Providing a show and activities in the first hour and then managed to face paint all the children who wanted it, keeping everyone happy. Can't recommend him enough. A great party for all.

Fabulous

Absolutely fantastic, peanut engaged well with ALL the children, got them all involved in games, dancing, catching bubbles with wishes in. He made sure each child got their face painted. On arrival peanuts introduced himself to me and my sons, who’s birthday it was. He was very well mannered and courteous. Brought his own music and disco lights, props and everything. Worth every penny and even adults who attended the part with their children commented on how great he is.. they will be booking him for sure :). Thank you Peanut for making the magic come to life for Oakleys party :)
