COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES, SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES & MAGIC SHOW INFO:
During the COVID-19 pandemic Magic Martin has been closely following government guidelines regarding social gatherings and advisory safety measures. In conjunction with advice given by entertainment governing bodies, local authorities and insurance companies, Magic Martin has put in place increased hygiene and social distancing measures to insure a safe and comfortable audience and performing experience.
The simple to follow steps will automatically be implemented allowing clients to enjoy an easy booking experience, simple party/ event planning process and hassle free running on the day. Martin & Kerry aim to answer all concerns over safety prior to the event and enable stress free set up and implementation during the event/ party.
At present the ruling in England is that Current Guidelines For Garden Parties & Village Halls for up to 30 Guests are now allowed. This means that whilst adhering to sensible social distancing the show can go on!!
Amazing shows with lots of slapstick comedy magic and audience participation (all socially distanced) and is guaranteed to create lots and lots of fun moments and amazing photo opportunities.
My stage area is fenced off with flags bunting to keep within the up to 2 metre government recommendations
For the magic show are encouraged to make or bring a magic wand for the show. If it is a birthday party then the birthday child will be the star of the show when they help make the magic happen, however Martin will get all audience members participating obviously from their seats!
Our party package include lots of socially distanced interactive party dances and solo actions/activities to limit contact but have maximum fun
*Currently I am not including giveaway balloons during the show to reduce contact, but offering a free gift to every child of a poster/colouring sheet and a Magic Martin sticker that will be given out at the end by the party booker. If you wish to upgrade and add in some party favours to takeaway then please see the fab Wand Packs available for all the Children.

MAGIC SHOW & PARTY GAMES
Martin has developed a new show and party package to enable social distancing and increased hygiene measures.
No children will be invited directly into the stage space during the magic show. Any individual children who are invited to help out in the show will do so at a safe distance. If any item is handed to a child it will be sanitised in advance.
When possible children will be given a sanitised rubber mat to sit on to enable social distancing and to help alleviate children from moving around unnecessarily.
Balloon Sculptures will not be included in the show as prizes unless specifically requested. If so Martin will thoroughly sanitise his hands and the balloon will be inflated with a sanitised hand pump.
The Mini Disco/ Party Games elements of the 90 minute party package will include party dances that feature solo dance moves and interactive elements that children can follow on the rubber mat.
The party games will also be solo games and not team challenges.
The party games will not feature items that need to be passed around or include physical contact
All Children to receive a prize (mentioned above) and given away at the end of the party by the party organiser not by Martin.

Here at KJ's Entertainment have been working closely with other entertainers across the UK to come up with the best outcome for the future of birthday party entertainment during the Lockdown and now as we are starting to return to a new normal, including writing safety procedures, guidelines & risk assessments. We would like to thank Andrew Green, Paul Marlow, Matthew Cope & Scott Thatcher for their help. www.andygreenmagic.com
