Frequently Asked Questions
Are Einstein’s Entertainers science parties’ fun?
Absolutely, both children and parents love our science parties. All parties include something to take home - a pair of rainbow glasses and either a pot of custom slime or a bath bomb made by the child. Our candyfloss Add-On also includes a bag or stick of candyfloss for each child.
What will happen at my science party?
An Einstein’s Entertainers Party will (with the help of plenty of young volunteers) perform some amazing interactive science demonstrations. As mentioned above, all children get something to take home.
Slime sounds great...but won't the children get messy?
Every year we have the pleasure of making slime, bath bombs, fake blood and all kinds of other experiments with thousands of children. We've just about perfected giving children the chance to make slime without making a mess! We promise that your Einstein’s Entertainers science party will be mess, stress and hassle free.
Can you provide invitations?
We provide free e-invitations which can be emailed to you once you have booked your party.
How long will my science party last?
It's up to you! It all starts with the Classic Party (1 hour) and our Add-Ons (30 minutes each) can be added to the party as per the booking form.
Where will my science birthday party be held?
Your birthday party will be held at your chosen location. Either at your home or in a hall or venue. We also charge a mileage fee from SE18 7RT to your venue and back for the round trip. We will advise you of your mileage cost before you book, as soon as we have a venue postcode. Please see the booking form for space requirements.
What do you need from me for the party?
Our science party has been designed to be self contained. All we need from you is a sensibly sized space for the number of children who will be attending, the use of a table and access to both electricity and a sink.
What is the perfect age range for the science party?
Our parties can be altered to entertain ages anywhere from 4 to 12 (and we like to think the grown-ups enjoy it too!). Just let us know the birthday you’re celebrating, and we can make sure that your little scientist gets the best show for them. Please note that children of 3 years and below must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
I would love to have an Add-On to my Classic Party, but can I fit in a food break during the entertainment?
Absolutely! For all hour and a half parties we recommend a break after the first hour for food/birthday cake. We ask you to mark this on the booking form (breaks offered during parties with Add-Ons).
When can I have an Einstein’s Entertainers science party?
We program performances and parties seven days a week! It's always best to contact us as early as possible, as our regular clients book at least two months in advance. However, if you have left it until the last minute do still get in touch; we'd love to help you out if we possibly can and we may have a date free.
How many children can come to my science party?
Between 10 and 20 works best, as the children get to be really involved. There is no maximum number, but there is a surcharge of £5.00 per head after 20. Please let us know as far ahead as possible how many children will be attending, as we may need to provide extra entertainers or materials.
I'm not sure how many children will be at the science party?
That's no problem at all. All we need is a rough idea in advance (so we can tailor the party to the size of the group and buy in the correct amount of materials). As long as we know at least a week before your party we can cater for this.
Is the science party safe?
Yes! All these experiments have been performed for years without an incident. We are also fully insured (with no intention of ever using it!)
Have you been DBS Checked?
All of our entertainers hold Enhanced Criminal Record Bureau checks.
Do I need to have booked a hall before I get in touch?
No, it's best to contact us as early as you can so we can let you know when we're available. It can be easier to book the Einstein’s Entertainers science party first and then confirm the venue afterwards.
Do you get booked up in advance?
It's always best to contact us as early as possible, as our regular clients book at least two months in advance. However, if you have left it until the last minute do still get in touch; we'd love to help you out if we possibly can and we may have a date free.
What if my child has been to an Einstein’s Entertainers science party or event before?
Please let us know as soon as possible if the birthday child or other children have been to any Einstein’s Entertainers event before so that we can tailor your party with alternative experiments.
How much of a deposit is needed to secure my science party?
There is a 50% deposit to secure your party and, due to high demand, we do not hold dates until this is received. The deposit can be made by BACS as per our terms and conditions on the booking form. You'll get a confirmation email to act as a receipt and confirmation of your event/party once we have received the deposit.
What about party bags?
We offer party bags at £5.00 per head. Our party bags include sweets and 5 party toys. For example: Chinese Finger Trap, Parachute Man, Touchable Bubbles, Aeroplane Glider, Clockwork Insect, Rocket Balloon and Jumping Beans (please note these contents are not exact and are subject to availability).
Do you cater for commercial organisations?
Definitely, just get in touch to see how we can meet your specific requirements.
We charge mileage from SE18 7RT to your venue and back for the round trip. We will advise you of your mileage cost before you book, as soon as we have a venue postcode.
