Character Doorstep Visits
We are still able to bring a smile to your child’s face during the difficult time with a visit from their favourite character.
What is a doorstep visit?
A doorstep visit is a visit to your house by a chosen character or character/s but takes place outside. That can be your front or back garden, driveway, patio or pathway.
This is a wonderful way for your child to spend magical moments with their idol with their own personal visit.
What characters do you offer?
We have many characters to choose from – all live actors. If you cannot see who you want from our character list please just ask.
What is the cost?
Our doorstep visits are £45 for 1 character which includes a gift and certificate plus a tiara (for our Princess visits). Visits over 20 miles from NG5 (Nottingham) will incur a travel fee.
Is this allowed?
Yes. Households cannot mix however as a business following Covid Secure guidelines we are able to continue to operate. However during the new lockdown (until December 2nd) we cannot enter a private residence.
How to give your child the best experience of a doorstep visit
The new national lockdown does not mean your special day has to be cancelled. All it means is that we have to make a few extra preparations.
Here at Absolutely Amazing Children’s Entertainment our entertainers have all been working hard to ensure you have the best experience possible, all while working within the rules to ensure safety for all concerned. We aim to help you feel safe and relaxed so everyone can enjoy the experience to the fullest.
While our entertainers are still able to make home visits, the new restrictions coming into force will prevent us from actually entering private homes. This isn’t a problem, however, these new rules have happened at a time of year when the weather can be very unpredictable.
What preparations can we make for a visit?
Firstly, what we should never do is let the present situation get us down. The rules and regulations have been changing so fast all year, and our entertainers have met every challenge head on. This time, all we require is a bit of preparation beforehand.
The weather at this time of year cannot be trusted, so it’s essential to create an outdoor space with some cover for you or your entertainer . This can be anything from setting up a marquee, to opening up a garage door, a garden parasol, a sun awning, polytunnel, an open ended tent, anything you can use to create a covered area ahead of the visit.
If you have any trouble, our entertainers will be more than willing to lend a hand, moreover, they will be in contact with you, providing any support you may require on the run up to the visit.
If your visit is taking place in the evening, you may also want to think about lighting.
We do not predict that this lockdown will be extended into December, however if your visit is a Santa visit, you may want to set up a chair for Santa and a smaller covered area for him to interact with your child.
All in all, we are dedicated to ensuring you have a very special day and we are more than willing to pitch in on the process to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible with maximum fun.
