ANDREW NASH

Andrew is founder, creative director and lead entertainer at It’s Partabulous with over 15 years’ experience as a children’s entertainer.

Andrew began entertaining 19 years ago when working for Weststar Holidays Ltd in the West Country owned by Deborah Meaden from BBC’s Dragons’ Den. Having later trained as an actor at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) from 2002-2005, Andrew has worked in Musical Theatre, Theatre, T.I.E and Pantomime engaging with large family based audiences.

From 2006 to 2009, alongside his work as a professional actor, Andrew worked as a freelance entertainer for various children’s party event companies developing an array of skills and gaining a huge amount of experience delivering all kinds of themed parties and corporate style entertainment across London and the Home Counties.

Andrew founded It’s Partabulous in 2009 so that he could develop and build upon his own unique brand of high quality, fun and engaging themed parties that would enable him to continue to create unforgettable childhood memories for children’s birthday parties and events. Andrew vividly recalls his own birthday party when he was 8 years old. It is a memory of something quite magical and special. This is what Andrew aims to bring to every child at an It’s Partabulous party: not just the birthday child, but to all of the children he entertains. Andrew adores children of all ages and can think of no better way to impact the world than bringing joy to a child on their birthday. To have a small part of that child’s life for a brief moment, when they still have the unique ability to imagine, to believe in the mystical and magical, is something he is extremely passionate about and feels is profoundly important.

Andrew is a consummate professional and strives to achieve excellence in all he does. His party entertainment is no exception. He can have a room full of children eating out the palm of his hand and deliver a party experience unlike anything you’ve seen before. Children warm very quickly to him and he has the ability to engage every child: boy or girl, shy or boisterous, and make them feel special with his kind, gentle and fun nature. With Andrew as your entertainer you guarantee that each child will leave the party elated and suitably exhausted having had the best time of their little lives for those 2 hours.

Andrew designs and delivers every party that It’s Partabulous offers, but is mostly known as Jedi Moss with the delivery of his exceptional Star Wars Jedi Training party. Being a huge fan of the films this is the pinnacle role of his career, and having delivered this party over 1000 times within the last 10 years, admits that he never ever gets bored of it. You will not find a better, more professional entertainer for your child’s party currently on the circuit.

But don’t take our word for it: here’s what some of our hundreds of clients have said about Andrew’s entertainment at various parties across London and the Home Counties over the last 10 years.

“Andrew has a captivating style and all the kids were hanging off his every word as they threw themselves into the Star Wars games. He pitches it in a very engaging way so that kids who are not Star Wars buffs can get involved. Andrew did an amazing job and really made the day special for our six-year-old son. One mention of Jedi Moss and he will tidy his room and do his Homework at the drop of a hat! The session was fun, different and taught the kids some valuable lessons about doing the right things or not giving into the Dark Side. I couldn’t recommend the service more highly to anyone who wants to give their child a day to remember.”

Max Gosney, Chislehurst, February 2016

“What a party! Thanks so much Andrew, aka Jedi Moss. My 8 year-old-son said it was the best party ever! And I think his friends and their parents all agreed: Andrew is professional, well organized, full of energy and a big fan of Star Wars (my kids were impressed by his knowledge of the saga!) From the moment Jedi Moss arrived the kids were engaged with amazing games and dancing. The Lightsaber training was a big success! Jedi Moss also helped coordinate the cake cutting and that was very pleasant and helpful. It was exactly what I hoped for, and more! Thanks again for making my boys’ day so special!”

Paola Pernice, Westminster, January 2016

“During the party, not only were we delighted by the service Andrew provided, but we received a lot of comments from the other parents, who were all really impressed too. We had never seen a group of 4 and 5 (plus the odd 7 and 10) year olds so engaged in activities, without losing the attention of any for the entire 2 hours! Andrew provided a complete 2+hour service, from welcoming all the children at the beginning, to making sure they were happy during lunchtime, to seeing them off at the end. We didn’t have to do a thing and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you very much for a brilliant experience. Everything was extremely organised and I felt very confident throughout the whole process.”

Liz Chan, Harpenden, November 2015

“I cannot recommend Jedi Moss highly enough. He single-handedly kept 28 children entertained for 2 hours. It looked like brilliant fun for all involved and my 6 year old spent the entire party with huge grins of pure joy. Feedback from other parents later confirmed that everyone had a blast. It just couldn’t have gone any better! Andrew is a very professional party organiser – prompt responses, organised, thorough. He made the whole process easy and stress free for me, and the party itself exceeded our expectations. Thank you Andrew.”

Heather Wood, Mortlake, September 2015

“We have attended a few parties where Andrew has been the entertainer and from this had hired him for our child’s party. Each time he has been brilliant, very engaging, always on time and very responsive. Andrew is absolutely brilliant with the children. He keeps them entertained and pays attention to them all. He uses great props and a lot of humour so it is quite fun for the grown ups too! Highly recommended! Thanks Andrew.”

Estela Birks, Harpenden, July 2015

“If you are reading this, then don’t hesitate any longer and book Andrew. He was the most amazing party entertainer we have had and so so professional. He engaged every child, remained in character and was so so professional. My son said it was the best party he has ever had. My husband and I were actually left with time to take photos whilst watching all the fun party time action take place. Absolutely brilliant!!! Worth every cent! From the very first email Andrew had been nothing but professional and accommodating – even when we had to change the party date. He was on time, organised and delivered the best party ever.”

Sally Walsh, Wandsworth, June 2014

“Once again thank you for a truly amazing party. Bethany had her magical Frozen party yesterday. She has been talking about having her own party with you for almost a year since Ryan had his fantastic Star Wars party with you. Without a doubt you are the only party entertainer for our children. Always so wonderfully planned and your attention to detail is wonderful. You go above and beyond and make every child at the party feel special. This is what magical childhood memories are made of.”

Michelle McGeorge, Wickford, March 2014

“Absolutely faultless – As a mother with 8 years’ experience of my own children’s parties and also having professional experience of children’s events I feel I’m qualified to say that Andrew is amazing! All the pre-party info and admin was professional and reassuring and Andrew was a huge hit on the day. Andrew was totally in control and my husband and I were able to relax and really enjoy the party. The entertainment was inclusive and engaging for all the children, even the shy ones (the birthday boy included). All the children had a great time and the watching parents were highly entertained by the children’s antics. Can’t wait until next year!”

Louise Williams, Raynes Park, February 2014

“Andrew was in costume and in character about 20 minutes before the party started, giving my son some special attention even before the guests arrived. Andrew made 15 children’s dreams come true for 2 hours, especially the birthday boy. Thanks so much Andrew, although brilliant with the kids, you are also a true professional. I have no doubt we’ll be booking you again in the future.”

Sophie Newbould, Shenfield, January 2014

“Jim was fantastic! He kept 26 five year olds under control and entertained for the whole 2 hours. It was a big weight off my shoulders. All I had to do was sort the hall and provide the food. It was lovely to watch the children rather than run round after them. The birthday boys were delighted!”

Laura Sullivan, Flitwick, February 2015

“A great rapport with the kids and amazing professionalism and enthusiasm. One of our little guests summed it up perfectly, “It was the best birthday party I have ever been too”.”

Geraldine Eaton, Farnham, September 2013

“Having 14 years of hosting kid’s parties I have never been to one or had one that was as amazing as this! It is the first birthday party I have ever been sorry it was over. I am in awe of Jim and how he could entertain the kids and keep them so well behaved! First class! I cannot recommend highly enough.”

Yvonne Shepherd, Woodford, July 2013

“Jedi Striker (Jim) was amazing. He had the kids eating out of his hand and even managed to handle my hyperactive birthday boy. He had boundless energy and endless charm. 5 star performance! Everyone, including the parents, was thoroughly entertained.”
