There were many things I liked about the whole experience. Firstly, Julian sent a text the day before to make sure I didn't have any questions. He arrived bang on time on the day and was very relaxed and friendly, he showed the birthday boy a couple of things 'pre-party' whilst he was setting up the equipment, which filled time while he was waiting for his friends to show up. Our house is small and Julian coped well with the lack of space, we had 8 children in all for the party, plus the parents who stayed to watch, so it was pretty cozy to say the least! The pace of the presentation was pretty fast with no pauses, so the kids were always doing something, and Julian always made sure that the shyer children were involved, he also asked the kids lots of questions and got their brains working. Loved the kids ( and parents ) reactions to the experiments, lots of laughs too. Everyone left with a big smile on their faces, comments after the party usually included 'awesome' in the sentence, and two of the children now want their own sublime science party!Didn't have to tidy up afterwards! It was FUN! Well worth the money, the kids (and adults) got so much out of it and had a lot of fun, now we are inspired to do a little experimenting of our own!

What did your like best? Interaction, humour and ability to manage a challenging set of 11 year olds! Different and engaging for older kids.

It was simple yet engaging and educational. Chosen as it was an affordable science party.

All of the kids were made to feel part of the group, they all had turns and there was time to learn why things happens and then do the fun stuff....the party was for 8 year olds but my 4 year old was also included - he felt part of the group too which was great. We had the party at home which also worked well for us - we didn't need a huge amount of space so the reduction of costs of hall hire etc was good....we had 12 kids in total. Something fun and different - this was both!

Thanks so much for making Kirsten's 10th Birthday party a huge success. I have already posted a review on your Facebook page and will most certainly be recommending Sublime Science parties to anyone who will listen.

That this was real science presented in an engaging way. Mark's presentation was factual, fun and perfectly pitched for the age of the girls at the party. Mark's presentation and the content of the party were perfect. It's hard to know how they could be bettered! Our daughter loves science and wanted a different kind of party. The girls are still talking about the party now! One of them went home and insisted on showing her younger sister as many of the experiments as she could. The feedback from parents has also been great - thanks very much!

The style in which science is taught. Interactive, participative, games & fun. Makes the birthday child feel special and involves their friends too. Sounded like interactive fun. Hadn't experienced a SS party before. Also had seen a mad science party before and it was too dull as not interactive enough.
Thank you. Sophie was great and worked very well in getting all the kids involved. he was able to take all the questions combined with a calm yet "in control" approach worked really well. Thank you Sophie.

Absolutely great to see kids having fun yet learning something at the same time. Although the group was predominantly boys, the activities suited both boys & girls. I also like the fact that Josh was made "the leader" but all the kids were "picked" to demonstrate an activity in turn. If you're looking for something different as a party idea for 6-8 year olds then Sublime Science is it! Zeenat & her assistant managed to keep 20 children entertained for the full 90 minutes & all the kids left the party with smiley faces down to the party bags & telling their parents what they'd been doing. SS bring all the equipment they need apart from a table & access to electricity. They set themselves up very quickly & took any mess away with them. I would certainly recommend them!

I don't think you could as this was the best party ever and I've had 18 yrs of them, my 5 yr old was mesmerised and his friends were also! Fed up of church halls and free for alls and whacky warehouses...week in and week out ...same old! As our son Freddie s birthday is in January , it's too cold for many to do an outdoors activity! We wanted something bespoke and that's what we got! We had the party of 18 children in our conservatory and considering the age of the children being 5 they sat perfectly and participated beautifully! No madness of children shouting screaming and running about! So my home was intact (as friends joked I must be mad to host a party at home)...most amazing party ever! Didn't want the party to end! Naomi was fantastic, she had an instants rapport with the children especially being so young I was a little worried their attention so an wouldn't be maintained.....how wrong could I have been! Not one body moved , except when the smoke bombs started....that was hilarious as all the children were squealing laughing and taking cover.....get down everybody....times less simple fun x

The slime making. Kids loved it! Also the presenter was very pleasant which is always appreciated. Was very pleased with the overall show. It was something very different to the usual kids entertainment.

I loved everything about the party experience. Emily captivated the children immediately, even before the party started Emily had groups of curious children asking questions and she was very happy to have little chats with them all explaining what each experiment did. I know that all the parents would agreed with me when I say that we enjoyed watching all the children taking in what Emily did, then asking questions about what happened, getting involved with the activities and most of all seeing their faces light up when the experiments worked. I can't think of anything, Emily was great! no need for improvement. It was different, I got fed up of soft play centres and magicians, I wanted a party that all children could get involved in and learn at the same time. The party was a amazing, please let Emily know that she was great!
