Kelly

Hey there! I’m Kelly, I have been working with and performing for children for over 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 7 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

Venetia

Hello! I’m Venetia and I’ve been working as a children’s entertainer since 2011. I am an actress by trade and have also toured in Children’s panto, and run several workshops for various theatre groups. I am delighted to be working for Happy Hatter, and think there’s little more rewarding in life than seeing a group of children having the most amount of fun possible, and in creating a wonderful day for the birthday child, their friends and family.

“Thank you very much to Venetia for entertaining Daniel and his friends today, they all had an amazing time and it’s safe to say both my children are shattered. Thank you once again and I will recommend you to all my friends. THANK YOU!!” Sara, Hornchurch

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

Over time I’ve performed in a variety of styles from touring 3 theatre in education shows across Europe, to producing a west end dining experience, to having a certain soap star climb on me like a koala bear in pantomime. I have always loved performing for children, seeing all those cheesy grins and hearing big belly laughs as you fall off a small plastic chair, creating memories that will stay with them forever. And let’s face it, we’re all big kids at heart really!

I’ve been teaching children singing, dancing and acting since 2009 (which I love) but only became a Happy Hatter Entertainer in 2015… and I have loved every minute! I get to dress up every weekend (more often than not as a princess!!!) and I find myself having just as much fun as the children. The best bit is seeing the looks on their little faces when something magical happens – it really is rewarding 🙂

I can’t wait to come along and spend the day dancing, laughing and playing games at your child’s next birthday!

Maisie

Hi, I’m Maisie! I am mum to little Cosmo and an actress. I love nothing more than showing off my crazy dance moves and trying to copy everyone elses. The best job by far I’ve been lucky to have (other than Happy Hatter of course!) is helping the big man himself, Father Christmas, in the run up to Christmas; watching those happy boys and girls meet him was totally magical and an utter privilege. My dreams for the future involve as much fun as possible, more babies and plenty of laughter.  

“ Maisie was just great, the children loved her. Highly recommend!! Can’t fault the entertainment.” Rita, Putney
