Party Entertainer In Dorset & Hampshire

With an endless repertoire of zany jokes, magic and circus skills, Barney Bay is the perfect entertainer for children of all ages. Younger children love Barney’s colourful magic show and slapstick comedy, while older children delight as they assist Barney in his crazy antics and become part of the circus extravaganza.

For Children’s Birthday Parties, Barney Bay offers three standard party packages (as well as a bespoke service):


Barney’s colourful and visual show includes magic, balloon animals, juggling, unicycle (space permitting), plate-spinning, yoyo, diabolo and oodles of fun and participation. Children are reduced to hysterics as Barney muddles and struggles through his party tricks, but don’t worry kids – he usually gets it right in the end!

TWO-HOUR PARTY (ages 5+):

the children arrive to a plate-spinning workshop and music, and then sit down to enjoy Barney’s amazing show (as above). And then after tea (the only part you have to worry about) you can relax as Barney organises games to music and a limbo-dancing competition.


up to 30 children at once can try their hand at plate-spinning, diabolo, juggling and more. Barney rounds off the hour-long session with a short Children’s Birthday Party show. Click here to find out more.

Bournemouth-based Barney Bay has performed for playgroups, schools, Holiday Centres and Children’s Birthday Parties along the South Coast since barely out of childhood himself, and is now firmly established as a children’s favourite throughout Bournemouth, Poole, Dorset and beyond.
