It’s the ultimate party prize
These childrens entertainers from St Helens knows how to throw a good party.
The Ultimate Party People has ranked in the top five of the Best Children’s Party Entertainment category in the What’s On 4 Junior Awards 2015, a national competition sponsored by Drayton Manor.
The winner will be announced at a ceremony at the theme park’s hotel on June 19.
Jessica Drillingcourt, who set the company up, said: “We didn’t even know this competition existed. We were nominated by our customers – the people who had booked us. We got through to the next round and we got an email informing us we had got through.
“It went through a public vote and as a result, we are in the final five.
“We are the only firm in the area, which is great, as there are a lot of entertainment companies around.
“I am absolutely over the moon and really proud. It is really hard work but I do love my job.
“I am so thankful to the people who voted for us and think we have done a good job. It is really lovely.”
The firm was set up by 23-year-old Jessica two years ago, offering children’s party entertainment, from a Disney princess and superheroes, to sports activities and pirate themes.
And no party is complete without chocolate fountains, sweet cones and face painting.
Jessica added: “I have always done children’s parties and when I graduated from university with a first in drama, I decided to do it full time.
“I love making sure children have a lovely time, creating a magical day for them.
“I have a team of 10 women who work for me and we go to parties, entertaining children and doing face painting.”
