Virtual Children’s Parties: How to Source the Right Entertainers!
After nearly 3 months of social distancing due to Covid, we are all ready to slowly but surely go back to normality. However, as much as we all want to restart celebrating occasions, we still have to proceed with caution for a little while longer- especially when it comes to the little ones in the house! That’s why it’s a good idea to host our children’s parties in a different, safer approach: by booking Children’s Themed Entertainment that can fit a Virtual Party!
But, what sort of Children’s Entertainment can still be engaging for the child when enjoyed through a screen? What is the setup? Worry not! In Today’s article, we tell you exactly how to book the right entertainment for your Virtual Child’s Party.
Hunt for Children’s Entertainers who offer Virtual Shows
We have all adapted to the lockdown life as best as we have been able to, getting a proper setup to work from home and similar. That also goes for a lot of Children Themed Entertainers… But not all of them. Therefore, save yourself time and disappointments going straight to Entertainment and Event Management Agencies who specifically provide these services.
What you also have to bear in mind is that, although a lot of entertainers will offer the Virtual Entertainment Services, not all of them will have the expertise and setup required for the job. Therefore, it is important to ask for samples of their online show to make sure that you will be ok with the quality.
Not all Children’s Shows will translate well on screen
Also, it is important to bear in mind that not all kinds of Children’s Entertainment will translate well through a screen. Once again, a short chat with your Events manager should give you a good idea of what Entertainment would suit your Child’s Party, so you just have to ask!
Here at Julia Charles Event Management, we source a wide variety of Children Themed Entertainment for Parties. We have heaps of experience creating Children’s Parties and providing Kid’s Acts and Shows before and during Lockdown. Therefore, we would be more than happy to advise you in what acts to pick -you just have to give us a call!
Double-check yours and your guests’ connection before the Party!
Have you ever had one of these mythical Zoom video conferences where everyone turns into a million squares and end up sounding like a bad imitation of a Dalek? We are sure that you have and that you do not want that for your child’s party!
Whether your guests are going to be physically at the event or will be attending from their homes, it is a good idea to do a speed test of your internet connection, as well as your guests. If you foresee that yours or somebody’s connection will bring trouble, it is never too late to contact your internet provider to troubleshoot your connection and make necessary changes before the event.
Also, whilst you would expect that your Children’s Party Entertainer of choice has a good connection, it is not a bad idea to double-check this fact with the entertainer themselves or the Event Manager. They should be able to bring some evidence of their internet performance!
Remember to have fun and… Enjoy!
Lastly, remember to relax and enjoy the party. 2020 has been a trying year for a lot of people and that is why you are putting together a party for your little one: to give them the chance to relax, have fun and forget about the outside world.
Online parties can be a bit more complex than anticipated, since the format is very new for most people. In these occasions is a good idea to ask for the help of an Event Manager so that you can relax and leave the planning to trained professionals that will make your Child’s Party second to none!
