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!

We had a mainly adult event with a few kids. Peanut entertained them brilliantly and the adults were so pleased that the kids had something to do. Great balloons, face painting and a lovely manner with everyone. He was just happy to entertain. Highly recommend. Great choice.

From the point of making an enquiry peanut was prompt on his correspondence which was reassuring. He arrived all prepared brought lots of toys, props for the children. He very was very engaging managed to keep the children entertained age range was 4-12.
He was gentle, and just in charge of the party which was good for me - he clearly is very experienced, he has been clowning and face painting for over 30 years but very young at heart and knows all the current cartoon characters. His face painting is amazing much better than on his website and he is very fast. Kids were demanding the Designs and peanut was churning them out! His balloon modelling is also worth mentioning very good. He stayed for 10-15 mins longer and did not charge .

Hired for a 1st birthday party and Peanut the clown was an amazing entertainer - kids loved the party games and the magic tricks. Guests were very impressed with Pete and other parents have taken his details. Thank you so much for making my son's party such a success.
