The purple teapot company performed at my daughters 3rd birthday party and we couldn't have been happier. It was a big party with lots of family and friends as well as little ones but even with all the ruckus, everyone was enraptured from start to finish. We loved it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a children's show. A league above your regular children's entertainment'
Child Friend Brighton
'A fantastic kids production company, will have both kids and adults laughing out loud'
Lauderdale House, London
'We thoroughly enjoyed having Purple Teapot Company at Lauderdale House. The children in the audience were captivated from start to finish (no mean feat for an age range of 2 -7!) and the parents seemed to enjoy the show just as much! The feedback was fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate inviting them back to the house for future shows.'
Private joint birthday party
Thank you so much for this afternoon. A truly fantastic show, the children were mesmerised by the puppets. Everyone who attended the party has commented on how unique and funny the show was. I would 100% recommend anyone that is having a party with young children to book The purple teapot puppet company.

Jonathan, I think you have gained quite a few new fans yesterday and that's not just 5 year old's...I have passed your details to several of the parents. You have done an amazing job! Your attention to detail and your amazing sense of humour is great and also your genuine wish to make it special for the girls was much appreciated by us all. Our child (name removed) opening up to you and joining in was very special to us and a first ! Thank you ! Viola
Thank you again for yesterday, the children absolutely had a ball. It was really quite special. Wendy
Private birthday party
We all loved the show - loads of really positive feedback from the parents and children as well. Apologies for the 'lively' children at times! We will see you at next year's festival I'm sure!

'Hi Jonathan, thanks again for a great show.The children and parents were thrilled with the entertainment you offered - it was lovely for them to see something so different to the norm - in a good way of course!'
The Brunswick - our Brighton Fringe venue:
"'The Bubbles For Breakfast Puppet Show' was undoubtedly one of the highlights of The Brunswick's Fringe programme and the quality of the show was reflected in the laughter of the three sell-out crowds throughout the month. Appealing to both kids and grown-ups, I have no doubt that we will be seeing a lot more from The Purple Teapot Company and I can't wait until my son is old enough to have the show at his birthday party!"
Andy Hillion, Promoter, the Brunswick
'At Heaven we are proud to be the preferred venue for Purple Teapot to showcase new ideas since its inception in early 2012.
Our very discerning young audiences appreciate the extreme originality that these shows embody. Children and parents alike glow with delight as the beautiful panoply of old-school puppetry, magic, mime and sublime silliness unfolds, interwoven throughout with hilariously perfect songs that everyone can choose to join in with.
Many of our guests have gone on to book Purple Teapot shows for celebrations such as birthday parties, and everyone leaves the shows with wide and satisfied smiles on the
ir faces, animatedly sharing their best parts and still singing. There is something wholesome and nostalgic and also fresh and innocent about the Purple Teapot recipe that we haven’t experienced with any other children’s entertainers.
We sincerely hope that Purple Teapot continues to flourish, and excitedly await the next development they will bring us and their audiences.'

Hi Jonathan, We would like to say a huge thank you for your amazing show - the children absolutey loved the puppets, magic & singing. You kept them spellbound throughout the 3/4 hour performance & the parents & staff enjoyed the show as much as the children. I have no doubt you will get some further bookings for birthday parties as a result of your performance here; parents have already requested your contact details. We look forward to enjoying another of your shows in the future!

They were very excited to tell their parents/carers all about the show! we look forward to booking you in the future.'

Christmas show at 'Heaven' in Nutfield,
“Jonathan was great. Laid back, cool calm and collected. The lack of formality set everyone at their ease. Connected with the kids. Songs were original and easy for kids to sing along to. Magical ending with rainbow in the teapot and kids jumping up and down covered in snow. Bubbles were a hit too. Best bit was that when we got home; Jasmine and Rosanna played puppet shows for the rest of the day! Children all took part and nobody was scared! Great homemade props.”
