Description

Kids Party Convention 2019

After some great feedback from our first convention, we have rolled it out again with an incredible lineup for 2019. Every lecturer is an expert in their field and it is a real honour to have each and every one of them at the event.

KPC is the only convention in Scotland dedicated to Children's entertainers and people looking to either break into the industry or add to their existing entertainment skillset.

Here are the lecturers we have lined up for this year's fantastic event!

Balloons From Beginner to Advanced with MR B Loon

I Have known Frank for well over 10 years personally and a kinder gentler teacher in the art of balloon twisting I have yet to meet. His creations are incredible and if I'm booking a professional balloon modeller for my larger corporate clients and want to wow them with latex works of art Mr B Loon is my go-to guy! He has fantastic systems in place and will be able to advise you on the right tools for the job as well as teach you some balloon creations you would have never thought you could do in your wildest dreams!

Daffy Dill's Incredibubble Bubble Show

Helen (Daffy Dill) is one of those natural characters in the kid's party industry she oozes fun & zaniness whenever you meet her and I can tell you it's infectious. For the first time, Helen will be revealing her closely guarded bubble show to other working pros. She has put years and years of research, study and physical practice to create probably Scotlands best bubble show. Helen will perform a show that will inspire and take you through some of the basics of putting your show together. Helen has also kindly offered to do a masterclass on building your bubble show the day after the convention. Helen offers one to one training and bubble work consulting either in person or online via group webinars or one to one Skype/Zoom calls. The session proves to be very insightful and a lovely follow on from Caroline Ainslie's lecture last year.

Magical Madness With Tricky Ricky

I'm delighted to have one Scotland's busiest Kids Entertainers on this years line up. Tricky Ricky is the busiest kids performer in Edinburgh and his name is known and loved by all who have seen him. The lovely thing I have found with Ricky & his performances over the years is he is not a cookie cutter version of anyone else most of his magic & comedy props are made by himself or his father (Bill McLeod) who is an incredible maker of magic and I have to say I still use some of the props Bill made me years ago today in my shows. Ricky will entertain you with great magic and puns that will have you groaning with laughter. You are really in for a treat and Ricky will also have some of his products with him he will demonstrate on stage and if you love them you can add a few to your show after his lecture. Ricky has been 23 years full time as a professional kid's and family entertainer so there is a lot to be learned from a real-life working pro.

Adding a bit of fizz Whizz Bang To Your Parties with Amazing Science Parties

Science experiments have fascinated me since I was at high school and saw some done at a school charity slave auction (ask more about at the convention) l ways wondered how some experiments where great fun but most where dull during science now with Science shows becoming so popular I have been gathering a bag of experiments over the last 2 years through various sources and online subscriptions I have joined. I will share the best ones with you all and why I think they are better than others. I will have an assistant with me through the whole lecture as I teach them you will learn too.
