Party Testimonials

"Just wanted to thank you for an AMAZING party you did for Lucy. She loved it and so did all the kids and parents who came."

Lucy’s Mum


"Thank you so much for a wonderful party. Alice loved it and I've seen lots of mums today and received text messages saying how brilliant you were and that the children really enjoyed themselves."

Alice's Mum


"Thank you for a wonderful party you held for Charlotte, Isabella and Sophia a few weeks ago in Summertown. Could you please send our thanks to Lucy, the pair of you worked so hard at the party and all the girls had such a good time."



"I can't tell you how amazing the party was and how impressed the guests were too. You really captured the attention of the kids and timed the mix of games and songs really well. It was brilliant fun! The parachute was a marvellous hit and I'm seriously considering buying that dog on a lead…for myself! Genius!"

Archie's Mum


"I just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU for the absolutely fantastic party you gave George and all his guests with your brilliant music session last Sunday. Everyone who I've spoken to after the party thought you did an amazing job, and one friend of mine said yesterday that it was the best kids' party she's ever been to (and she's been to quite a few, having a 6- and a 4-year old!). I wholeheartedly agree with her – it wasn't just great fun for all the kids, the adults certainly enjoyed it just as much, and eagerly joined in with it all! Well done, Sophie, for creating such a fabulous atmosphere and for engaging the children so wonderfully. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who is planning a party for their child."

George’s Mum


“Just wanted to say thank you for a truly fabulous party yesterday. We were all so impressed by your energy & skill in keeping everyone entertained. You put a lot of effort into personalising the party to Harry's favourites & it really paid off as he loved every minute. On the way home he remarked how 'really really nice' you are and he asked if you could come back and do his party again next year. We hope you can make it! Save that superhero cape !”

Harry’s Mum

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for giving Jasmine and her friends a wonderful 4th birthday party. With a unique mix of games, activities, music and props along with your boundless energy and enthusiasm, you successfully managed to keep 24 children of different ages entertained for 2 hours! It was lovely to see everyone having such a good time and 2 weeks later Jasmine and her friends are still talking about it – you don't get better approval than that! The parents also gave you a big thumbs up – all wanting to know how I found you! They commented how relaxing the party was because the children were so happy and well entertained."

Jasmine’s Mum

Jasmine’s Mum


"We had a MAD party for 26 three year olds! It was perfect – lots of props, singing and dancing tailored to all our favourite songs. Would highly recommend!"



"Since the party I have had parents comment on how nice it was to see the children singing, dancing and enjoying themselves and a refreshing change from a party in a playcentre where there is no interaction. I would recommend Sophie to any parent looking for entertainment at a children's party. Sophie made the process easy and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves!"

Happy Mum


I hired Sophie for a MAD Academy party at my son's birthday party. From the very start Sophie was extremely helpful wanting to find out the theme of the party, what music my son would like and suggesting popular party choices. Sophie kept me informed of what music and games she had planned for the party. Sophie did a fantastic job of keeping all the children entertained and they had so much fun. Sophie even created a game to match the party theme. It took pressure off me from having to organise games and buy party game prizes.



"Thank you so much for coming to Emily’s party and making it a fantastic 5th Birthday to remember! We had so much fun doing all your party songs, games and activities and very much appreciated the extra bit of Christmas sparkle that went into it too! You were quite simply the magic ingredient that every party should have and we can’t thank you enough for bringing such energy, enthusiasm and child-centredness into Emily’s day. Everyone has fed back that it was one of the best parties they’d been to."

Emily's Mum


"MAD Academy entertained the children at my daughter’s birthday party. Much fun had by all, even the quieter children wanted to get involved. The session was tailor made for the very varied age groups attending and included some of Harriet’s favourite music. Will definitely recommend and use MAD Academy again."
