Kelly

Hey there! I’m Kelly, I have been working with and performing for children for nearly 10 years & there really is no better job in the world! I am an actress and started my career as a performer in children’s theatre. I set up Happy Hatter Parties 6 years ago because I am truly passionate about creating a magical and unique experience for every single child that I entertain. I have found so much joy in putting together a team that shares this vision and are devoted to creating this experience for each child that attends one of our events!

“I would highly recommend Happy Hatters. Kelly was the entertainer for my daughters 5th birthday party, plenty of high energy party games and the children were under her spell the whole time. She knew all the children’s names within 10 minutes and there were 30 of them!! Look no further for your party entertainer” Natalie, West Wickham

Jess

My name is Jess and I am a professional Actor, Singer and Musician. I *love* being a professional big kid and have worked as both an entertainer and drama teacher for 4+ years to compliment my work as a professional theatre performer. On a weekday you’ll find me in primary schools providing drama workshops or teaching music to little ones, but on a weekend there really is no greater job than being a part of a kindlywink’s bestest birthday party, and you’ll find me dressed up, full of laughter and smiles… and usually covered in a bit of glitter too!!!

“Jess came to our daughter’s 3rd Birthday party and she was really great. She was very professional and punctual and called ahead of the party to talk about what our daughter would enjoy. On the day she entranced the children who were all thrilled by her, she kept them happily engaged for 2 hours. My daughter still talks about how Elsa came to her birthday party – I cannot recommend Jess and Happy Hatters enough” Alison, Brentwood

leigh

Leigh

Hey I’m Leigh and I am a professional performing artist. I have acted in theatre, screen and commercials and still like to find time to involve myself in new performing projects. As well as working as a Happy Hatter entertainer, I work as a performing arts teacher visiting local primary schools. I also work as a drama teacher, teaching lessons outside of school. I really do love working with children! My jobs have kept me motivated to work with children in creative exciting ways. To me it’s important to develop their creative imagination and give them the freedom to explore new ideas and get swept away in the magic of make believe!

“I can’t thank our entertainer Leigh enough for entertaining 26 5 year olds with such ease. I didn’t have to worry about a thing after she had arrived and the children were so engaged from the beginning to the end of her entertainment. Will be sure to recommend.” Rachel, West Wickham

Being a big kid gives me a natural rapport with the children, and I love being able to play Batman and Raphael in a single weekend!

Austin

Hello, I’m Austin! I’ve been involved in the world of performance right from the beginning. I started acting in shows at my local Youth Theatre from the age of 10, then in my late teens I began leading my own drama workshops and performance projects for young people. When I’m not acting, I’m a teachers assistant for various Schools across London. But I’m always clowning about, making people laugh and not taking myself too seriously, so it’s really no surprise that I’ve ended up a Happy Hatter! I adore bringing fun and energy into the room and seeing all our party guests have a great time!

“We had Austin at our superhero party for our son’s 4th birthday and he did a fantastic job. Our little man was enthralled from the minute that he arrived. So helpful, friendly & so much fun for the children.” Maria, Orpington
