Is there a maximum amount of children you cater to?
This depends on your party package or service. Our traditional parties have no minimum or maximum numbers but our themed and tailored do. This is so we can make sure you get the best out of your themed party. You can now add extra guests at an additional cost. Please feel free to ask and clarify during your booking or enquiry process.
Do you work with other business?
For a breakdown on how we work with other business please check out our blog here.
When should I book?
We’d always recommend booking 3+ months prior to the date of the event however can be booked up well in advance of this. We’d always advise you to check with our team as availability can occur even days before the event.
Are you DBS Checked? (formally CRB)
The Disclosure Barring Service formally came into being in December 2012 following the merger of merger of the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA). All our associates which work in various roles in our business are self employed. All individuals who work with The CopyCat Party Company understand and are willing to partake in any requested DBS check. Please note this is a standard charge which will be added to your total payment.
Please note before going ahead with a DBS request the eligibility of the job role itself. A DBS will not be needed in most cases due to the nature of the booking.
We have provided this government link on this subject and if you have any other questions we can happily contact you.

What deposit do you require for a booking?
We ask for £10 per service for a non refundable initial payment amount. This is subject to change. For party packages this is £50.
Do you have a full price list?
We don’t supply a full price list online due to the amount of packages we offer and the options for all of those packages. (It would be a HUGE price list and misleading) Therefore we offer a no obligation quote based on your package interest, length of party and location – all factors which are included in an accurate quote. You can get this by contacting us.
We do offer starting prices where possible on the website. You can find these around the site and clearly state ‘From…’.
What prizes do you give out at parties?
We give our small party favours which currently include bubbles, stickers and other fun extras. As an aim we are aiming to move away from plastic as much as we can so this may change in the future.
We don’t currently offer sweets due to potential allergies however should you wish to supply these for your party we can give these out on your behalf.
