Planning a Party? Here's How...

HELP! – What Should I Book First – Date, Hall or Entertainer?

This one catches out many inexperienced party givers, but the answer is simple.

The thing to book first, is the thing that is most important to you.

It may be you can only get your chosen hall on a certain date and that will be high on your priority list. It may be that important guests are only available on a certain date, or it may be that your chosen entertainer has limited availability, then booking that should be first.

Your child will only remember three things about his or her party:

  1. How special they were made to feel
  2. How much fun they had
  3. How many and what presents they got

Two of these three areas are directly associated to the entertainment you choose and so it is usually the entertainer that you should book first, but not always.

Here’s what I suggest. Select a number of alternative dates you could have your party on, and prioritise them in order of your preference.

Leave the date to later on in your conversations with entertainers; there are so many more important things to talk about before settling on a date.

If however, the hall or the date is the thing you want to book first, because those things are more important to you, then obviously check the date with your entertainer first to save wasting your time, and theirs.

There are many halls available for parties in most areas of the country, and usually many alternative dates your important guests will be free, so usually the entertainer is the first thing you should book.

Remember young children up to their 5th birthday have no concept of calendar so the date thing for them is very unimportant, because they haven’t yet grasped it.

Most professional entertainers understand this dilemma and will hold a date for you whilst you confirm a booking with a hall. If for any reason there is a delay booking the hall, keep in regular contact with your entertainer, just to make sure he or she understands that you are serious and doesn’t let the date go to someone else.
