I would love to have a Premium Party, but can I fit in a food break during the entertainment?

Absolutely! Please see the Premium Party Schedules above. 

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 an additional charge of £5 for each child over the recommended 20

 

If you are unsure at time of booking, we can add any additional charge to your balance closer to the party date. However, If you are expecting 35+ we would be grateful if you could notify us as early as possible, as we may need to provide extra entertainers or order additional materials.

What is the perfect age range for the science party?

Our parties can be altered to entertain ages anywhere from 4 to 10 (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.

 

If your child and their friends are 3 years old turning 4 please let us know when booking, as we may need to create something more specific for them, and please note that each children of 3 years and below must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Where will my science birthday party be held? Can I have it at my house?

Your birthday party will be held at your chosen location, either at your home or in a venue you hire. We do not provide the venue as part of our service. 

Do I need to have booked a venue 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.

What do you need from me for the party?

Our science parties have 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.

 

If parking is not available at the venue, please advise ahead of time. 

Can you provide invitations?

On request, we can provide free e-invitations which can be emailed to you once you have booked your party.

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
