Dear Mark,

I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic party. I was impressed by you punctuality, professionalism and friendliness, and your entertainment was fantastic. You managed to totally captivate the children and keep them engaged, and there were full-on belly laughs all round :) Despite the birthday girl not feeling her best, she has still been repeating your jokes all week! I would wholeheartedly recommend you for any children’s party. 

Many thanks,


Hi Mark,

I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for today. The kids absolutely loved it and my daughter was beyond thrilled. She went to sleep trying to work out how you did the trick with the ball and laughing again about the wonky wand!

I will recommend you to all my friends. Thanks so much again.

Hi Mark,

Sorry this is belated but I must thank you for the absolutely fantastic entertainment you provided for Oran’s 5th birthday party. The children were captivated by your magic and puppet shows and loved all of the games. Going by the amount of noise they were making they loved it! You really took the pressure off and ran the show; it was really helpful that you adapted the entertainment around lunch and cake and started again when some had finished without having to check in with us. All the parents have been saying what a great entertainer you were.

Thanks so much! We’ll no doubt be back in touch for future birthdays!


17th June 2019

Morning Mark.

Thanks so much for coming yesterday - we all loved the show and Jean felt very special.  We thought you were so good at reading how the kids were feeling and helping to warm them up to join in - you certainly have the knack.

I have just paid your invoice by bank transfer.  Thanks again.  Until next time!

Best wishes,

Hi Mark

With apologies for the delay I just wanted to drop a note to say thanks again for coming to perform at Isla and Callum's party a few weeks ago, they had great fun!  Thanks in particular for your patience with the more rowdy members of their class! 

All the best  

Kind regards 


Hi Mark

Thank ever so much for entertaining the kids at my son’s 4th birthday party - they all had an amazing time the parents were able to relax and let you take care of the little ones. Judging by the noise and laughter you really made the day! I also wanted to say we really appreciate how professional the Mr Squash service was, from the promptness of your communications, the ease of invoicing and of course your punctuality and willingness to be flexible to the needs of the venue. It is truly an easy decision to use the service again in the service and I highly recommend you to anyone seeking a party entertainer.

Best regards

‘I have been employing Mark for my Christmas parties for 3 years in a row now. He just gets better and better each year. The kids adore him and the mums and dads do too! I would thoroughly recommend him!’

We first encountered Mr Squash in 2016 when the puppeteer booked in for my daughter's 4th birthday party had to cancel on the day due to unforeseen circumstances. Mr Squash stepped in and really did save the day. He couldn't have been more brilliant if I'd written the perfect party scenario myself. My daughter Carey absolutely loved the show, and so did all the kids. When Carey was still talking about the show nearly a year later, we knew we had to book him again. We had some trepidation that perhaps we'd imagined how good he was, but this wasn't the case. He was just as brilliant. He takes control from start to finish, and has all the kids riveted, in stitches, captivated, animated and engaged. He does party games, and bubbles, and magic tricks, and plate spinning, and a puppet show. Both this year and last year, almost all parents praised how brilliant he was, and several commented that their child did not usually engage or participate in party stuff but they were amazed to see how much they got involved, laughed, reacted to his show. I think his true magic lies in that he really gets kids and what makes them tick, and that he doesn't work to a set formula but reacts to how they react to him. I've seen too many entertainers who do not do this. If Carey wants him again next year, we'll be booking. Thanks Mr Squash

Hi mark, 

Wanted to say a big thank you for making Archies party so special. You were fab! Archie had such a lovely, funny time! 

We will be recommending you. 

All the best 


Hi Mark

Thank you so much for Saturday. Charlie and all the children had an absolutely amazing time. You seem to have super powers! My husband and I were a bit nervous about having to supervise Charlie's 20+ 5-year-old school friends, since most parents dropped their children off, but they were a breeze since they were having so much fun watching your show, and with the multitude of activities you kept them entertained with including lots of dancing. I did not realise they were able to giggle and laugh for that long. Really superbe - well done and thank you.

Best wishes,



Hi Mark-

 I made the transfer so hopefully you'll get it tomorrow. Everyone was raving about your puppet show- and everything else for that matter!! So sorry not to meet you, but will definitely recommend you to other parents. Thanks very much for making Martha's day really special. 



Dear Mark,

A big thank you for your great entertainment, you did a great job to keep the children engaged all the time, you ensured the birthday girl was super happy and that made our day. You are the best children entertainer I have ever seen and I will definitely will be contacting you for future parties!!



Dear Mark

...all the feedback I received was extremely positive. Parents said they enjoyed it very much themselves and the kids couldn’t stop talking about it once home.When dropping Lia at nursery today I overheard Hattie saying how much fun she had! ...

Valeria - West Green

Dear Mark

Thanks so much for making Sadie's birthday so special. All the parents were in awe of your ability to keep the kids so thoroughly entertained for such a long time. It was wonderful to see them laughing so much and sometimes uncontrollably. The grown ups were having a good chuckle too! It was also lovely to see kids enjoying some good old fashioned entertainment! Your relaxed and friendly approach was very infectious and made the whole party really fun and easy. We were touched you stayed to chat and for a cup of tea afterwards. We would definitely recommend you!

We asked Sadie what she thought of Mr Squash and she said she liked the puppets and when we asked what she found the funniest she said "everything really, cos I just keeped laughing!"

Thanks so much again

Sophie, Anthony and Sadie

Hi Mark ,

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Sunday. What a fantastic afternoon. The kids loved your show and so did we - so many of our guests said how perfect it was - loads of fun, just the right tone and a really lovely energy without being hectic or OTT. 

My daughter keeps saying how funny you were and the fact she joined in says so much, as she is so shy in that sort of situation.

We are so, so happy with how it all went.

Please put this up on your website if you'd like to,

thanks again

From Louise, Highgate

Dear Mark


We just wanted to thank you for all the hard work on Saturday to help make Jonah’s 3rd birthday a very happy occasion for all.  ‘Mr Squash’s’ help, advice and timing ensured the entertainment ran smoothly and the children’s faces speak for themselves – magic!   


We hope to see you again and wish you all the very best.


Hi Mark,

I just wanted to say a big thank you for Sunday. You're right that Ushi is shy, but she was so happy that day, and it was important to me that she felt really important. You really helped with that. It's made her a bit more confident with her friends, and that's great.




Thank you so much for everything today. You were amazing and we are so grateful. Arthur had a great time, as did all the kids. Hope this afternoon was ok and your journeys worked our ok?

We cannot express just how brilliant you are, nor how grateful we are for what you did today, and would recommend you without hesitation.

Many thanks,


18th March

Arthur & Betsy both keep talking about you. So much so that when Arthur starts chucking to himself from out of nowehere, I ask him: what's so funny? And his response is 'Mr Squash'. We have a couple of short videos from your show and he likes watching them over & over. The one that seems to tickle him the most is the 'if you're happy and you know it, pick your nose...no,no,no' which he repeats and then bursts out into uncontrollable laughter.

Please fee free to quote any of what I have said.
Many thanks again,

Hi Mark,

 just wanted to say a huge thank you for your visit on Starlight Ward today. Hayleigh said the children loved your visit especially the puppets.

all the best with your work. Many thanks once again

"Many, many, many thanks for yesterday's show. It was fun, entertaining and kept all the children engaged for the two hours. All the children were speaking about Mr Squash after the show and telling their parents as they were picked up to go home. For Maisie it was truly a special day and one I hope she remembers. I asked Maisie what she thought of Mr Squash and she said he was fantastic!...We would certainly recommend Mr Squash to our friends"
