All Sublime Science actually needs is a flat table and a plug socket – we bring the rest. Now of course if you book some other activity, this may or may not be doable.
You may still want to hire a venue and I’ve noticed the most affordable venues tend to be either local village halls or church halls. Generally they charge only a few pounds for 3 hours rental and tend to have all the facilities you could wish for: kitchen, toilets, tables, electricity, outside space, parking etc. So before booking a private (and often expensive) venue, check with your local village hall or local church.
The 3rd and final awesome question I got asked this past week is:
“Hello Marc, I’m just wondering whether or not the parents should stay at the party or if the children would prefer to be by themselves. What do you think?, Regards, Kim”
Good question and perhaps not that straight forward. For legal reasons, some adults need to be present at all times during the entertainment, and it’s usually best if it’s the party organiser.
It also generally helps if some parents are there, but when ALL the parents are there then it can be a problem. Sometimes when all the parents stay they may chat between themselves and whilst this seems fine, it does actually distract the children!
If the children see that the parents aren’t paying much attention, chances are the kids will copy. At Sublime Science we always get the adults that have stayed involved as much as possible to avoid this.
So at the minimum should be event organiser in case of emergencies, and at most, just invite people to stay that you know will get involved.
