Questions you may have?

Questions you may have we will always try to answer them for you, here are some of the questions we have been asked and we hope we have covered them all.

  • What areas do you cover?
    We cover most of south Yorkshire and a few areas around the outskirts. Please see our areas page for more information and detailed postal code areas, if your post code isn't on the list and you think you are close to the areas we cover then send us a message and we will see if we can travel out to you.
  • Where abouts are you based?
    We are based in Sheffield, and travel up to around a hours distance from Sheffield to accommodate all your party needs.
  • Why should we choose you?
    No party is ever the same. We know that you have to respond to what children say on the day, and adapt a party that revolves around their energy levels. For example if kids are highly energetic and ready to start jumping up and down, we won’t try to sit them down quietly, we’ll get them up and play active games and dance to music. Each of our children’s entertainers has bundles of energy and our activities are very lively, with loads of fun for children to take part in. There are many other things that set us apart too though, such as: Our exclusive Flava fun party content Tons of variation and activities packed into every party Super energised entertainers Very competitive prices Every member of our team is DBS checked Our electrical equipment is PAT tested yearly for safety Over 15 years of experience We have loads of reviews from past clients who love what we do!
  • Are your staff DBS checked?
    Yes every member of staff that works for flava fun parties is DBS checked and we pride ourselves on providing all the relevant paper work, so we can entertain in schools and organisations.
  • Do you know venues I could use?
    Yes we deal with a lot of venues around south Yorkshire and we are currently compiling a list of venues we suggest for your party needs in and around south Yorkshire
  • Do you provide light up numbers?
    Yes we provide light up numbers that can either glow up with white light or multicoloured lights which is always a good one for the children. These can also come with balloon garlands to outcast the numbers in your chosen theme
  • Can you provide balloon arches?
    Yes we can provide balloon arches for your day, these have to be booked in when you book in for the entertainment so we can allow enough time to erect the balloon arch and also prepare the disco and entertainment equipment.
  • What kind of prizes do you provide?
    Prizes vary depending on what we have on the day, but they generally include medals, stickers, popit toys, wall crawlers, bouncy balls, crayons, puzzles, note pads, snap bands, light up toys, etc…
  • Can I send song suggestions for the date?
    Yes we welcome you to send us song suggestions in for your party, all we ask is if you can send them in at least 7 days before the party starts so that our entertainers have enough time to make sure your suggestions are in a folder ready for your event
  • Will you keep the children entertained all the way through the party?
    We will always try our best to keep all the children entertained all the way through the party with our non stop games, the only time we break is for food and drink, but its not always possible with some children as they want to run around and not join in which we will never make a child join in
  • Do you allow for the children to have a break inbetween for food and drink?
    Yes we break for food around the middle of the party for the children to go for food and drink, which also gives our staff a chance to grab a quick drink and get equipment ready for the next games
  • What do you class as a distraction at the parties?
    Here at flava we class bouncy castles, soft play areas and children that are just their to run around as a distractions for those that want to join in. We don't have a preference with balloons as these we use through some of our games. The only time these can be a distraction is if the children are going around popping the balloons and scaring the other children that are present
  • Do I have to choose your party packages or can I make my own?
    Not at all. You can have a custom made party package if you’d prefer. Our children’s party packages are designed to make choosing what to have, easy for you. But if you have a set idea of what you’d like already, simply tell us and we can put together a customised party package for you.
  • Do you allow bouncy castles and soft play at the parties ?
    We don't suggest having soft play or bouncy castles present at the party, as this distracts the children from joining in with the entertainment, this also diverts attention. If you are having a bouncy castle present and soft play we just like to make you aware that we will do our best to keep the children entertained that want to join in, but we can not guarantee them joining in, this is the risk you will run with having a entertainer and bouncy castle present at the same time
  • Do I have to have games in my party package?
    All our packages comes with Games for the children but no you dont have to have games present at your party. If you feel your child will not be interested in the games then we will leave the games out of the package and just revert to the disco with the theme of the party also playing action songs for the children to dance to.
  • Do you have a limit on the amount of children present?
    No its no problem to us how many children you have present on the day, the more the merrier, and the age ranges of the children is no problem to us as our games are very wide ranged for all age groups of children. The only time we have to put stipulations on how many children are present if you have booked in for the face painting or hair station as these are limited to the amount of children we can fit in with a certain time limit.
  • How many entertainers will be present?
    To most of our packages their is usually always 2 entertainers present on the day, the only package that only one entertainer is present and that is our bronze disco pacakge
  • Are your entertainers male or female?
    Our entertainers are predominantly female and we are skilled in all party packages
  • Do you provide everything you need for the entertainment and party, plus all the games?
    Yes we provide all our own equipment, and we provide all the prizes for the games we play, choosing 2 or more winners every time. We also provide sweets in some games for all the children to win that take part. The only thing we do not provide is pinyata's or pass the parcels, we do state that if you want a pass the parcel or a pinyata then please provide them yourselves and we will work them into the programme.
  • Do you know anyone that can dress the room for a event and provide cakes?
    Yes we will recommend a couple of different businesses for your room decorations and also your cakes and sweet treat needs, these businesses we will put you in touch with and let you book and organise your needs through them separately
  • Do you provide your services for corporate events?
    Yes we can provide our services for corporate events, we have to charge a little extra than what you would pay for a normal party as we will need to bring in extra staffing for larger events and also provide larger number of games and prizes for the amount of people you have present on the day.

  • Would you provide children's entertainment at a private party or wedding?
    Yes if you have more than 10 children present that would join in the games, then we would defiantly play some games with the children and provide the prizes and sweets, this is a good way of catering for the children as well as the adult guests on your occasion.
