“A huge Thank You for today, Peter. Lucas and Jack had an amazing party and loved every minute of it. All of the kids were so amazed with it all and sat so well, watching the show. They all took part in the games as well, which was great!! Have already recommended you to lots of other parents.” Lisa Newport, Marcham, May 2019

“Absolutely brilliant.  I had magic Peter for my girls’ 4th and 6th birthday party yesterday, he was amazing, all the children were amazed and sat the entire performance. Thank you so much. From first contacting Magic Peter, he was brilliant, explaining all aspects of his party offerings along with keeping me up to date, sending invitations, name stickers and confirmation emails. Highly recommended.” Sarah Pratley, Kennington, May 2019

“Peter came to do a magic show for my sons 5th birthday. He was great and the children loved him! He held their attention and made us all laugh. Nothing was a problem and the admin very easy and we would definitely have him again for another party. Many thanks.” Frances Phillips, Bibury, May 2019

“My 6 year old had a top notch birthday thanks to Magic Peter. Great communication and helpful tips before the party, and a great time was had by all the kids and grown-ups. Thanks!” Ben Jeffery, Witney, April 2019

“Magic Peter was absolutely brilliant for my daughter’s 7th birthday party! I’d left it rather late booking and he managed to fit us in, was super efficient before and during the party, and so much fun! We couldn’t recommend him highly enough, it was the best party ever – for Rosie the birthday girl, the other kids, and the adults. Thank you so much Magic Peter!” Anna Morris, Oxford, April 2019

“Magic Peter is a fabulous entertainer. The kids were mesmerized and he managed to keep a group of energetic 5 year old boys and girls quiet and entertained for 2 hours. The booking process with Peter is very clear and easy. What he says, he delivers. What is more he is a lovely friendly person. Completely recommend. I heard only great feedback from those that attended the party. So pleased and so grateful, as Pete’s personalised approach and great contact with kids made my little boys birthday ‘super, mega great’.” Marta Mordarska, Chilton, April 2019

“Magic Peter was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. A true professional! He entertained nearly 30 children with ease. The birthday boy Elliott says ‘Magic Peter you are so great. You made my party fun and all my friends liked you. Thank you for letting me win the witch game!’ In his sister’s words ‘I love Magic Peter’. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. Thank you so much for today.” Hailey Hammond, East Hagbourne, March 2019

“Magic Peter hosted a Birthday party for us, the children and adults thoroughly enjoyed the magic show and there was lots of audience participation and laughing going on. After lunch we enjoyed fun party games and lots of prizes. Magic Peter is an amazing entertainer and I would have definitely have him back to host another party for us.” Sarah Piper, Paulerspury, February 2019

“Magic Peter was absolutely fantastic! How he managed to get 30 4/5yr olds to sit still and do everything he said I will never know! They were completely fascinated by all his tricks and the sound of them all laughing together was so lovely. They all loved the party games too. The communication leading up to the party was faultless, he really did think of everything. And the Magic Wand Kits were a big hit in the party bags! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!!” Emma Lutton, Witney, February 2019

“Not only was Peter efficient and hugely helpful leading up to the day, Magic Peter effortlessly entertained 20 over-excited 5-year-olds for over an hour. He was absolutely brilliant, involving individual children at various stages of the show, and captured the attention of the whole lot from start to finish – plus the older siblings who were genuinely fascinated by the sheer magic of it all. The birthday girl hasn’t stopped talking about him since, and best of all the mothers managed a lot of gossiping – sure sign of a good entertainer. What’s not to love?! An absolute hit all round – I highly recommend him.” Leonie Willcock, Shotteswell, February 2019

“We can’t thank Magic Peter enough for making our son’s party such a fantastic one. From first contact with Peter right through to the end of the party he was faultless. The thought of arranging a party for around 30 4-5 year old’s seemed a little daunting to us but as soon as we had the recommendation of Peter, contacted him and was booked in we knew the party would be in safe hands! The communication right up to the party was brilliant, Peter’s huge amount of experience shone through with all the extra thoughtful touches he added and in anyway he could make it the ‘stress free’ party package he was offering. On the day of the party, as soon as Peter arrived the party just as we thought was all under control with him there, the children were completely engaged from the first minute and loved every second of the magic show, as did the parents! Hearing the children’s’ squeals of delight at the tricks is a sound we wish we could bottle, it truly was wonderful. Peter had all the children entranced in the palm of his hand the whole time and the party games after the break for food was the perfect ending. As cheesy as it sounds, thank you for making our son’s magic party so magical!” Cara Vivian, Abingdon, February 2019

“We booked Magic Peter for our daughter’s 6th birthday party and he delivered a superb magic show with lots of fun party games. He entertained over 30 children at the two hours party filled with joy and laughter. Children were very engaged through out and parents who witnessed the show were very impressed. Magic Peter was very professional and organised from the moment we called for the booking until the end. We are so thankful for Magic Peter for making our daughter’s birthday magical and memorable!” Priyan Ariyasinghe, Reading, February 2019

“Absolutely fab party, he had 30 3 and 4 year olds mesmerised! Magic Peter even managed to keep the momentum when my daughter decided to ‘go mute’ making his job of doing magic with her, whilst continuing to entertain, a little more difficult! A lot of fun and laughter had by all (adults included) and his organisation before the party is excellent which takes the pressure off the organiser.” Zoe Barnes, Marcham, January 2019

“Magic Peter performed for our son’s 5th birthday this weekend, and he was amazing. From the minute he arrived the kids at the party seemed at ease with him given his easy going and approachable nature. He gave special attention to the birthday boy and during his show the children (20+ kids aged 4-7) and the adults(!) all sat engrossed in his show and giggling and proper chuckling at the tricks. The show was an hour and no-one was bored, they all loved it.
Thank you Magic Peter for making our son’s 5th birthday a special treat. Our son said that night it was the “bestest birthday party ever” and many parents and kids told us how funny he had been and how they continued to talk about him for the rest of the day. A truly professional show with many extras such as balloon figures and gifts for the children who participated. So glad we chose Magic Peter.”
Alisdair Cunningham, Compton, January 2019.

“This is the second time we’ve had Magic Peter perform at our children’s party. He is fantastic! He kept 25 children (age range 2-7) entertained for two hours. I cannot recommend him highly enough.” Adele Timbs, Horspath, January 2019

“Peter did a really great job of entertaining 18! 5-6 year olds at my son’s 6th birthday party. They all really enjoyed themselves and he made the whole experience a lot less stressful. I can’t recommend him enough.” Ian Clarke, Watchfield, January 2019

“2 whole hours with 4 and 5 year olds. All of which were overly excited and enthusiastic!!  Great entertainment. Many parents said [it] was the best children’s magic show they have seen!!” Pru Kennedy, Basingstoke, January 2019

“‘Magic Peter’ is quite simply magic! He was incredible in how he kept a room of 3 and 4 year olds captivated for an hour. They didn’t move from their seats. His magic was also brilliant. Not just for the kids but for all of the adults too! One dad said he’d like to book him for his own birthday party! He made my daughter feel really special but also ensured that the other children took part in his show. He was incredibly professional from the moment I enquired about his availability until the moment he quietly packed up and let us finish up the party. Your party will be in absolutely safe, talented and capable (magic) hands with Peter Kidd. 5 stars ***** . Thanks.“ Tanya Yazdanpanahi, Oxford, January 2019

“Magic Peter made entertaining over 30 3-4 year olds at our little ones party so easy! Peter is one of the most well organised entertainers I have come across and I have been doing parties for my children for 10 years! Nothing was too much trouble, the children loved his magic show and also all of the games, bubbles, songs and general entertainment he did with them. He kept us running to the clock so the party ran perfectly. We would highly recommend him.” Charlotte Jarvis, Headington, January 2019

“Magic Peter is very professional, and a pleasure to deal with. He is always very helpful, and quick to respond to any queries.  His ability to engage a room of three and four year olds for over an hour is amazing and we are delighted we found him for our son’s birthday party.”  Louise Rance, Marcham, December 2018

“Thank you so so much for this afternoon. We have a very happy birthday girl, who said she’d had the best party ever!  You were amazing with the kids. All the parents were commenting on how good you were! You made my life so much easier and it was so nice to be able to actually stand around at my own child’s party and enjoy the atmosphere. 😉  We will definitely be using you again in the future.  You were ace! ” Kylie Cantwell, Abingdon, December 2018

“Peter performed for my children’s joint 4th and 2nd birthday party. He was lovely. The children really enjoyed it and he kept them entertained for the full show. It was really nice to have a birthday party where parents can actually have a cup of tea and relax. I can recommend the full party package … the games were brilliant as well.” Rachel Wiltshire, Marcham, December 2018

“Wow! Where do you start an email when all your daughter’s dreams came true at the best, most MAGICal birthday party ever? Huge thanks for being so amazingly wonderful – everyone agreed the magic show was mesmerising, for both the adults and children, everyone was laughing from beginning to end! Your manner with the children is so fantastic, they were listening to your every word for the whole 2 hours of non-stop fun. So huge thanks for making her day even more special than we could have ever imagined.” Hayley Davis, Witney, December 2018

“Having Magic Peter preside over my son’s 5th birthday party was a dream! He is fantastic with the children and really has them all totally glued – and in hysterics – with this magic show. Not only that but he’s super-experienced at getting the over-excited rabble organised for fun, good-humoured games. Equally valuable was his wise words of advice in terms of setting up and managing the overall party. I would thoroughly recommend Magic Peter for any children’s party. He had the grown-ups giggling too.” Georgia Best, Abingdon, November 2018

“My daughter, who turned 4 this weekend, absolutely loved her party and all the magic tricks by Magic Peter. There were over twenty 3 and 4 year olds at the party and they were all completely enthralled and all of them sat still for the whole show!! The games at the end were also fantastic and it was a pleasure working with Peter who was definitely the most professional entertainer I have ever dealt with before (making it all a lot less stressful for me!). Thanks so much Peter for a great party, we all loved it!” Pippa Van Praagh, Chipping Norton, November 2018

“My daughter absolutely loved her Magic Peter party. It was tailored to her likes and everyone had a brilliant time. Magic Peter ensured everyone was was happy and enjoying themselves.” Juliet Quinn, Marcham, November 2018

“Wow, what can I say, fantastic entertainment for our daughters 7th birthday party. This was a party not thrown in a hall but in our front living room with 11 guests, all of whom seemed to love the show. So interactive for all, including the adults. Thank you so much Peter.” Alison Garraway, Didcot, October 2018

“Thank you very much for making Daniel’s special day truly special. He really enjoyed it and even when we got home he was still over the moon about it and how all his friends enjoyed the party too. We are all very grateful and looking forward to booking you again for Nicholas when he’s a bit older and has made a few friends.” Edwin Obetto, Lower Sewell, October 2018

“We booked Magic Peter for my son’s 5th birthday party. Peter was very organised before the event, which made it a lot less stressful for me. He did a fantastic job keeping 30 4-5 year olds (and their parents!) entertained for 2 hours. Afterwards my son said “it was the best day ever”, which has to be the highest recommendation in itself! Thank you Peter!” Tracey Underwood, East Hanney, October 2018

“Superb party for my 5 year old son and his friend, thank you sooooooo much! One of my son’s friends went home to his mum and said ‘Magic Peter is the funniest person ever, I want him at my next party’! The show is hilarious, the games fun and Peter’s patience with this age group when they get excited …. unbelievable! Thank you!” Zoe Barnes, Marcham, October 2018

“You’re an absolute star! Thanks so much for making Thomas and Benjamin’s party so special and for coping so well with a very giddy birthday boy. The kids all had an awesome time!” Kate Ellery, Marcham, September 2018

“Magic Peter put on a show for my son’s 5th birthday party and it was fantastic. A fun and interactive magic show followed by non-elimination party games after the kids had their party food. Even the most chatty and excitable of children were captivated and getting involved, and us big kids laughed along too at the fun being had. It totally removed a big part of the stress of organising and running a party for your child. Definitely recommend and would love to book again for the next big party my kids have.” Chris Whitehead, Didcot, September 2018

“We had Magic Peter last Sunday for my son’s first birthday party to entertain 25 children. Though my son is just 1 his elder brother is 4 and most of our young guests were aged between 4-10.  Magic Peter was very professional from the point of booking. He put up a very entertaining and impressive performance. Peter managed to put all the 25 children engaged for more than an hour and the children absolutely loved the magic show. There were few parents enquiring about Magic Peter to have him for their kids birthday party. Thanks Peter for making the party lively . I strongly recommend Magic Peter.” Divya Unni, Winnersh, September 2018

“My daughter had her 5th birthday party last month with Magic Peter. He was fantastic with the children, and my daughter loved taking part in the tricks, especially when she tried to turn Magic Peter into a frog!  Great party games, a special day to be remembered. Thank you, Magic Peter, for making our little girl a very happy girl.” Melissa Hitchman, Witney, August 2018

“Thanks for such a fun show. I think the kids, youngest and oldest (and grown up!) all enjoyed your props and engaging set up, not an easy feat for a group of mostly 2/3 year olds, on one of the hottest day of the year too!!” Sian Cooper, Chalgrove, July 2018

“Magic Peter is wonderful with the children, he recently held a magic club at our school which my son attended. My son can be extremely shy at times but Magic Peter was brilliant in engaging with him and has really brought on his confidence and love of magic, particularly making swords out of balloons!! (we now have a house full of them! ) Thanks Peter you are a star!” Rachael Williams, Brize Norton, July 2018

“Magic Peter’s magic shows wowed all the families at our village fete, and his balloon models were so popular he could have stayed til midnight making them for everyone. We can’t wait to have him back next year. A big thank you Magic Peter from us all at Drayton School PTA.” Laura Billington, Drayton, July 2018

“I asked Magic Peter to come to our Aftercare school summer party to entertain 60 children of ages ranging from 3 to 11 and to perform outside in the open. Quite a challenge!! But Peter held a captive audience for an hour, thank you Peter for being so amazing, the children had a ball!!” Sally Wilder, Headington, July 2018

“Magic Peter does the best children’s parties! We have had various parties for our son and for our twins, but Magic Peter is the best! The whole booking process was highly efficient, and he sorts out everything. He emails confirmations and all the details you need, he sends name badges, invitations, and even sorts lovely party bags. So all we had to do was sort the venue and the food.

“He set up an impressive performing area and kept the 25 children engaged for 2 hours. This is a big achievement with a group of lively 6 year old girls and also two 9 year old boys! A wonderful set of magic tricks that even the adults couldn’t fathom out. He gave extra attention to the birthday twins and involved them in the tricks. After a break for food, he led excellent party games.

“Very professional, welcoming and fun! We hope to use him again.” Ruth Tate, Oxford, June 2018

“We booked Magic Peter for our daughter’s 5th birthday party, having seen his website and the great reviews. We could not have been happier with our choice. Peter is amazing with children – all 20 of them sat in awe for 45+ mins (as did the adults!) before having a quick break and then enjoying more fun party games. There were tears with laughter and everyone had a great time; the two hours were up before we knew it.

“Peter is really good at communicating beforehand which is very reassuring when you are juggling all the other bits and pieces for a party (especially great as this was the first time I was organising a party on this scale). The invites and all the info he sent was very useful and one less thing to worry about!

I thoroughly recommend Peter and we look forward to seeing him perform again soon.” Neha Mistry, Abingdon, June 2018

“We just can not recommend Magic Peter enough. We had the most wonderful party for our son, Theo’s 4th birthday party on Saturday afternoon. Amazingly Magic Peter kept twenty mainly 3-4 year olds enthralled (and their parents) for almost 2 hours (1 hour then after birthday tea for another 45 minutes or so). He was incredible. We were all spellbound by his tricks, which we couldn’t figure out at all. Before the party, from the time of booking, Magic Peter was so reliable with communicating with us, and preparing the plan for the party. He arrived about 30 minutes before to set up and was so happy to talk to our little ones as he did so. His party bags were great too. Thanks again Magic Peter.”  S. Lou Hardy, Burford, May 2018

“I took a blind chance on Magic Peter after seeing a recommendation on Facebook for a 5 year old party. And wow! It was totally worth it. He mesmerised both the children and the adults with his magic. The show and games were interactive and funny. Everyone had a fabulous time and I would happily recommend Magic Peter to anyone. Thank you so much Peter!”  Selinaz Gimson, Bloxham, May 2018

“Peter is an exemplary showman. Super-organised, you can safely leave the scary two-hour party entertainment window in his hands. This man has about as much experience with the children’s party gig as you can get, and is clearly gifted with children. His gags had the tots (and older ones) transfixed for well over their usual attention span. He is professional, reliable and kids love him. Worth every penny. What’s not to like?” Camilla Francis, Goring, March 2018

“I initially contacted Magic Peter to provide some entertainment for our school circus themed summer Fete and he was such a hit with all the children and parents that we invited him back to perform at our Christmas Fair 🙂 My son loved Magic Peter’s shows (and amazing balloon models) so much he asked me if we could book him for his 5th birthday party! Again, Magic Peter didn’t disappoint, his party package really was stress free and his involvement of the superhero mad birthday boy made his day extra special! Peter’s Magic tricks and games kept 30 children fully engaged for a whole two hours – he actually made it look easy!!!  Thank you Magic Peter!” Gemma Brock, Moulsford, March 2018

“Thank you so much for a wonderful party!  You had all the children engaged and loving your show, adults too!!  Everyone loved the entertainment and I can say that you were the star of the event!! I don’t think I have seen anyone produce that many balloon models so quickly!  Thanks again.” Kay Hare, Oxford, September 2017

“Thanks so much for all your hard work. You do a great job! George and all of his friends had a wonderful time. He’s usually such a shy boy so it was lovely to see him letting himself go when he was up with you.” Bethan and Al West, Abingdon, September 2017

“This man is amazing. What an entertainer. How anyone can keep 20 4-5 year olds entertained for 2 hours flat is beyond me. I will highly recommend him to anyone looking at having a little ones party. Thank you Magic Peter.” Melissa Bennett, Carterton, August 2017

“We’ve attended other children’s parties where Magic Peter was the entertainer and my daughter chose Peter for her 8th birthday party … Many of the children had seen Peter perform before but they were all thoroughly entertained and captivated by the many tricks (as were the adults!) After a break for lunch, and as the children were a little older, he ran a little masterclass in balloon modelling so the group were able to make their own swords and dogs; a huge success! Peter is such an old hand with children’s parties he had a rough timetable in his head for the party, which helped A LOT as I didn’t, and he didn’t rush his time with us. He’s absolutely brilliant, it’s very easy to book an event with him and his magic is ace.”  Dalvinder Mulley, Tubney, July 2017

“From the initial contact through to the booking process, the show itself and the final follow-up, Magic Peter was a pleasure to liaise with. Everything was so easy – all I had to do was book the venue and sort out the food.”  Nicola Duckworth, Steventon, July 2017

“We first saw Magic Peter’s show at Millets Farm in the February half-term. His magic tricks captivated both the children & adults. Also we were really impressed with his approach with children & he didn’t become flustered with managing a challenging girl. Based on this experience, we booked Magic Peter for our son’s 6th birthday party on 21st May. Magic Peter performed a totally different show to what we had already seen. Also he had a very good repertoire of games and balloon animals, keeping 16 children (& the adults) happily entertained for 2 hours. Magic Peter exceeded our already high expectations & we would have no hesitation in booking him again & recommending him.”  Alison Lee, Abingdon, May 2017

“We booked Magic Peter for our 6-year-old’s birthday party. We went for the stress-free option of having Magic Peter run all the entertainment for the party, with a magic show followed by party games.  The kids loved the magic tricks and Magic Peter made the birthday girl feel very special from the moment he arrived. She thought his show was awesome!  Would highly recommend Magic Peter – he was very professional and a great entertainer!”  Eleanor Britton, Abingdon, August 2016

“You were brilliant. Every parent said how good you were. I loved the non-elimination games, especially as no one felt left out and they were games that no one had played before. The kids were laughing their heads off. Official quote from Balin, aged 4: ‘That was my best day ever!’ Thank you so much.”  Rowan Brown, Abingdon, June 2016

“Our daughter had her 5th birthday party today and I can highly recommend Magic Peter. He kept all the children entertained and they all enjoyed themselves so much. Great value for money, with all the children having fun and receiving prizes.  Fabulous children’s entertainer.”   Faye Williams, Lambourn, June 2016

“Thank you so much for a great party, the lids all had a wonderful time and we had some great comments from various parents, so hopefully you might hear from a few in the future. Evie really enjoyed it and loved telling all the family about it at her birthday tea yesterday, complete with her jetpack, of course!”  Mel Porter, Oving, April 2016

“Massive thank you from my daughter Minnie. She had a fantastic 4th birthday party and has made precious memories with family & friends. The adults enjoyed the show just as much too!  To others who have not tried already or are thinking of booking: I booked as a last minute booking and was very lucky Peter was able to accommodate. I found the whole booking process very efficient and professional and he adapted to everything I asked.  I would highly recommend and would definitely use again.”  Crystal Hutchins, Grove, January 2016

“Thanks for doing such a great job! Kids loved it – they even chose you over my cake! Thomas had an amazing day. Still running around with his space rocket!”   Morena Dawkes, Wheatley, September 2015

“Just wanted to say thank you very much for today. It may not have seemed it at times, but Olls had a brilliant time and so did all the others. Thank you for going with the flow and accommodating Ollie’s needs well … Many would have got frustrated with Olls, but you continued and even changed your show to follow what Olls was interested in.  Using the wand to [magically] turn out the lights was great. You were very calm with Olls, and me and Dave were more than happy.” Tracey Marshall, Abingdon, September 2015

“Thank you so much for an amazing party. The kids loved it and I loved how stress free it was for me!!”  Claire-Marie Mennie, Abingdon, September 2015
