About Us and our Journey!!
How we became Party Entertainers and how the business has had to recently adapt.
Come To My Party was founded in 2008 by myself Kerry Jay.
An entertainer all my life, I was constantly asked to entertain children at friends parties and after moving to Oxfordshire and starting a family, founding Come To My Party seemed an obvious next move.
I started my career as a professional dancer and singer and ‘trod the boards’ in London’s West End in shows such as Chicago, We Will Rock You, Follies, Les Miserables and Grease; as well as working commercially for artists such as Sugababes, Jamiroqui, Blue, Brian Adams, and Groove Armada and many many more in videos and tours. I have also been a dance teacher for 15 years.
Fully CRB checked with Public Liability Insurance, I love working with children and seem to be able to captivate their attention! So sit down and enjoy the party whilst I entertain the children!
I am also an experienced balloon twister and am now going bigger and better with my designs! As a lover of crafting but limited time on my hands, balloons have been a great outlet for creativity with big results in a short time! Be sure to check out the balloon pages!
Over the last couple of years I have also been developing my magic skills and have created my kid’s magic show. It is the newest part of my skill set but I am having a fantastic time developing the show and my new skills and I am so happy with the success of the magic show over the last year or so!
I believe in continuing to learn and develop my skills which is why each year I attend regular kids entertainer, balloon twisting and decor, and magic conventions and events where I interact with other top performers and we share skills. This enables me to provide up to date and relevant performances to today’s audiences and to learn and grow as a kid’s entertainer. I believe it is important to invest in my craft and also have the advantage of a great network of other top performers I can recommend if I am unavailable.

Gemma is a fantastic party entertainer with bags of energy and fantastic rapport with kids of all ages. She is an awesome performer and a very accomplished balloon twister. She has been working with us now for 7 years and we are really lucky to have her on board!
