Kids pirate parties in Bristol

From the minute Pirate Attack arrived to set up for the party I knew we had made the right decision in booking them for our son’s 5th Birthday Party.

They are exceptionally professional and kept the children entertained continuously for 2 hours, with numerous activities.  The party was so much fun, with such well thought out games, and continuous interaction which gave all the parents chance to just sit and enjoy a quiet cuppa!

I honestly couldn’t recommend them more highly for anyone wanting the best pirate party possible!  One child commented the party was “awesome” and numerous parents have thanked me for such an amazing party, as well as
asking me where I found them as they have never been to a party like it!
Liza Narracott, Hartpury

Thanks you so much for Saturday. As you were able to tell, all the kids had a wonderful time. Several parents commented to me about the party and the common word for all was “brilliant”. I asked William what his favourite part of the party was and he said he couldn’t choose because the whole party was so great. I will be recommending you to friends. Guy Jennings, Bath

I cannot thank you both enough for today. You superseded my expectations by a marathon! Your ability to keep twenty four and five year olds engaged and entertained for two hours was astounding – and the fact you could remember every child’s name unreal! They literally did not stop with one fantastic game and activity after another. A totally unique experience and so many of the mums commented that they had seen nothing like it on the children party ‘circuit’! I will be spreading the word of your amazing parties without a doubt and most certainly booking you again…. I will be in touch next year! Becky Dey, Stoke Bishop Village Hall

I just have to say another great big THANK YOU for the wonderful pirate party yesterday! It truly was fabulous, and such a hit with the children and the parents :)

A few parents commented on how great it was as they were leaving, and others sent messages as the afternoon went on… One even asked if you did other themes!

I am so very glad I found your website, and will happily highly recommend you to others.

Gabrielle Hill, Shire Way Community Centre, Yate

Many thanks for the excellent entertainment you provided for Harry’s 5th birthday yesterday. It was great and the children were so engaged with all the activities, you were both brilliant and we couldn’t have asked for more. So far the sponge throwing was the most remembered activity and I’ve had one report from a boy of  ’best party ever’.
Amanda Lincoln, Shipham Village Hall

We hired Pirate Attack for my son’s 5th birthday party – it was great! Captain Cliff and his wife Christine were fantastic with the children, really convincing pirate outfits and ran the party with confidence and ease.  

They played games, had a crafts table and made the birthday boy feel really special, all I had to do was organise the food so made for a really enjoyable party for me to host.  

Would highly recommend for a bit of swashbuckling fun!
Allison, Saltford

“We had high expectations for Charlie’s birthday party but I have no hesitation in saying that with your help they were vastly exceeded. From the moment you walked through the door the care in planning and the attention to detail were superb, and we were able to relax safe in the knowledge that we were in expert hands. As the afternoon progressed the children were enthralled and we had none of the tears and tantrums we were expecting from a room full of five and six year olds.

Talking to the children in the days afterwards they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the comments feeding back from the parents showed that they were impressed with the afternoon.

And to cap it all, the bill at the end of the day was excellent value for money. If anyone out there is looking for an entertainment package for a child’s birthday party, sail on over to The Pirate Captain and His Mate. He’ll even leave you a few pieces of eight in your pocket.”
Andy, Jane & Charlie Hay, Stanton Drew Village Hall

We all thoroughly enjoyed the party, Matthew especially – he is still talking about how he defeated  the Captain in a sword fight!   I was impressed by how many different activities you offered and how you engaged the children.   It was a very original party – he’s not been to anything similar.   I’ve had lots of positive feedback too, from parents and children.   We would definitely recommend a pirate attack party.
Alison, Mike, Matthew and Lauren Parsons, Backwell Parish Hall

Hi Guys, just want to say THANK YOU AGAIN for making Callum’s birthday so special. You were terrific!
Joy Wood and family xx, Stoke Gifford Poplar Rooms

We just wanted to say a huge thankyou for coming to rescue our party at the last minute, and making it a success.  I would like to praise you for a fantastic, professional and entertaining party.  The children were entertained, happy and excited throughout, and the activities were well timed and very involving.  Max and his friends had a great party and we are so thankful for your wonderful pirating skills and kiddie management!  I would whole heartedly recommend you to anyone – you guys were worth every penny, and hope to use your brilliant services again soon.
Helen Morgan, Portishead

Thank you so much for giving Emily a wonderful 7th Birthday party! We were absolutely thrilled with how professional you were and delighted that all the children enjoyed themselves so much. The traditional games and outright swashbuckling fun you offer can’t be matched by any other children’s entertainers. It was magical to see how the children were captivated by Rocky Cliff’s every move and super that they were still talking about the party in school today. I wholeheartedly recommend Pirate Attack and wish you both every success. Kate Inch, Stoke Bishop

Thank you once again for a fantastic party, Isaac enjoyed every second. I think the effort and attention you gave to every activity was obvious in the childrens’ delight. I was particularly impressed by how you managed a mixed age group and how many of their names you memorised. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pirate Attack.
Kelly Pawsey, Pucklechurch

Truly the best party ever everything was taken care of, I had a couple of shy children to start with pirate attack made sure they were comfortable and got them included to the party. The children sat and listened really well all children were included and supported each other. Samuel loved being the main ‘pirate’ and winning the sword fight!! Worth every penny would like to do it all over again, I was able to sit back and relax and was happy that all the children were enjoying themselves, all the parents commented how good the party was and how well behaved the children were. Have recommended pirate attack to lots of my friends already and will continue to do so. A pirate experience not to be missed. Gemma Searle, Longwell Green

Amazing party. Thank you so much. You both worked so hard to make it a really special day. It was fab.
Thank you.  Deb, Steve, Noah and Jude xx, North Common

Thank you Cap’n Rocky Cliff and Cut-throat Christine for an absolutely fabulous party this afternoon.  Jacob and his friends had the best time. Great fun, great activities and great value – highly recommended for all budding Blackbeards and Annie Bonnies! Sophie Jones, Brislington

You managed it all fantastically! Can’t remember a more relaxing children’s party. And the kids loved it! I’ve had so many parents say how much fun their children had. I was so impressed the way you adapted it to what worked with that particular group and the way you involved young Samuel as well was very kind and very clever. Isla my 7 year kid is now saying she wants a pirate party which we are delighted about because previously she was set on a girlie sleep over. Thanks so much. 10/10!!!
Anna Raphael, St. Andrews

Thank you so much for the fab joint birthday party you hosted for Alex and Benny today. At bedtime Alex said he wished he could start the day over and have his party again as it was so fun. You are very special people to do what you do – thank you again. Debbie Bartlett, Portishead

We are 1 week on from Isaac’s party and he is still buzzing from it! You made his party so special and I have a feeling he will remember it for a long time to come. I have had many parents who were at his party stop me this week to tell me how much they and their children enjoyed themselves. The main points were how you managed to keep 18 4-7 year olds so entertained for 2 whole hours! They were all so focused and engaged in the activities that they were doing. You enabled them to be so encouraging of each other during the individual challenges, like walk the plank and in particular, Isaac’s sword fight with Captain Rocky Cliff!! It was truly the best way to celebrate our little boy’s 5th birthday and you have made Isaac and his mum and dad very, very happy! I would recommend Pirate Attack to anyone who will listen! Thank you both for your hard work and enthusiasm. Nicky, Pete and Isaac Lewis, Weston-Super-Mare

If you haven’t booked Pirate Attack for your child’s birthday..why not?? They are the very  best in children’s entertainment. Great value for money and great with my son who has Aspergers and Sensory issues. I would hire again in a heartbeat! Deborah Cogan, Brislington

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the brilliant party last weekend. James loved it and has talked non stop about defeating the pirate – he was so pleased that he won!! Also, chasing Cut-throat around as she stole the treasure, and of course throwing sponges at daddy. It was extremely memorable for us all, and I thank you for your efforts. Emma, Trowbridge

Pirate Attack was a fantastic success at Zion, it was lovely to see the space being used in a different way and to see a mixture of ages all enjoying themselves.
Jess Wright, Zion Community Art Space, Bristol

Pirate Attack proved a huge success at the Long Ashton Community Centre.  Children enjoyed making spyglasses, walking the plank, bouncing on a very special pirate bouncy castle and lots of other games.  We would definitely book Pirate Attack again for another holiday week activity.  The staff remained in character for the whole session and were extremely good with the children.
Sarah Leong, Long Ashton Community Centre

Our little boy has just  had the most fantastic Pirate party courtesy of Captain Rocky Cliff and Cut Throat Christine. The children had the most exciting pirate adventures such as walking the plank and hunting for the buried treasure. All of the children were made to feel really welcome, thank you guys for a great afternoon. Nigel and Lucy Hills, Bath

I booked Pirate Attack for my daughter’s sixth birthday party, with slight trepidation as there were no boys coming. However, I needn’t have worried, as the two fabulous pirates engaged the girls from the minute they arrived. The girls loved the crafts, all the games and the bouncy castle was a huge hit. My daughter and her friends are still talking about the sponge throwing at the end of the party! It was the best party we have had so far and we loved the way our daughter was made to feel special throughout. We can’t recommend Pirate Attack highly enough. Tamara Sturtz-Filby, Bath

I would like to Thank you for providing Oscar with a fantastic Birthday Party. It was one of the best parties I’ve seen, and in the words of my son ”His best party ever!” All my sons friends loved it and really got involved. The whole event was managed effortlessly by yourselves making it stress free for us as parents. Could not recommend this party enough, Good old fashioned swashbuckling fun! Very reasonable and worth every penny. Kate Hathaway, Gloucester

I would like to express my gratitude for hosting such a wonderful party for Henry and Oliver.  It was amazing and everyone had such a great time.  From the moment you arrived, I felt reassured that you were going to provide an excellent service as you appeared very confident and well managed.  Throughout the duration of the party I was impressed with how you arranged all of the activities and children.  You ensured that all of the children were entertained and each one felt part of the day, especially the more reserved ones.  

I was equally impressed with how you tried to remember all 20 of their names!  It was so lovely to see Henry have such a fantastic time, he laughed so much that it made the whole day such a memorable experience and worth every penny. That being said, I also believe that the cost of the party was very reasonable and so much was included within the price.  The following Monday in the school playground the children were chatting about nothing else and were even telling the teachers that Henry had a ‘real life pirate’ at his party.  Thank you so much again.  I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family.  Absolutely brilliant! Anna Duncan, Brentry

Thank you so so much for making Seb and Tom’s 4th birthday party such a success. They absolutely loved it. You were fantastic at keeping them all engaged and making it loads of fun. I honestly couldn’t recommend you highly enough. The feedback from all the other kids has been, in the whole, ‘best party ever!!!’. Best wishes and thanks again!
Emma Radford, Cheltenham

Captain Rocky Cliff and First Mate Cut-throat Christine are delighted with the reception their parties have received, saying ‘as parents ourselves, we know how important the party is for the birthday child, their guests and the parents, so  we try to provide as much fun as possible. We like to keep it fast moving with a balance of energetic games and creative play, laced with plenty of humour’.
