Frequently Asked Questions / Terms & Conditions

How long should the entertainer come for?
Our entertainers are usually booked for one or two hours. Ideally, a party should last no more than 2 hours, as children have a short attention span!
How much will a children's entertainer cost?
This will vary depending on the duration of the party, the travelling distance, etc. For a quote please ring Loobylou on 01568 616200 or 07944 156798 or email your enquiry to
Can I book 2 children's characters?
Yes - please ask for a quote.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes, a deposit for 50% needs to be paid on confirmation of booking. The balance needs to be paid 7 days prior to the party date, or cash may be paid on arrival.
How do I pay for a booking?
The deposit can be paid by cheque, which should be made payable to 'Looby Lou Parties', and sent to: Mrs. L. Jones, Looby Lou Parties, 5 Old Barn Court, Victoria Park, Hereford HR1 1AS. The balance is payable in cash on the day of the party.
How soon do I need to confirm a booking?
As far in advance as possible, in order to avoid disappointment if a date is not free.
What if I need to cancel a booking?
Sometimes a cancellation may be unavoidable, but we regret that the initial deposit is non-refundable, due to possible loss of business once that date is kept free for your party.
What if Looby Lou has to cancel in the event of a sudden crisis?
In the unlikely event of this happening, we would do our utmost to provide a replacement character. Otherwise, any payment would of course be refunded in full.
Can I visit your premises in person?
Yes, Louise runs a fancy dress shop based in Leominster, and would be pleased to meet you and discuss your requirements. Balloon colours and designs can be chosen in person if preferred. Also, an extensive range of costumes and accessories is available to view. The shop is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 5pm, and Saturday 10am to 3pm. We are happy to open by appointment on Monday or Tuesday (please ring to arrange).
