Please note Shirley Ray's Magic Party is no longer available to book
For as long as she can remember Shirley has been turning children's birthday parties into truly magical occasions and to quote the words of a child making their party
"the best party ever "
Over the years Shirley's amazing Magic Paintpot Show featuring..
Mylo the magical puppet dog
has provided Fun, Laughter and Magical Entertainment at countless children's events from birthday parties to corporate family fun days.
In December of 2017 Shirley retired from the children's entertainment and balloon industry so sadly the magic party is no longer available however as a magical memory of a wonderful career this site and page has been kept open.
Shirley would like to say a huge thank you to all the mums dads and children she has had the pleasure of meeting and entertaining over the past 47years
The name POD came about through the seeds of FUN, MAGIC and LAUGHTER being contained within a POD.
POD Childrens Charity is a nationwide charity which organises entertainment for children in hospital.
POD Childrens Charity helps to alleviate the trauma of a hospital stay by sowing the seeds of fun, laughter
and feeling better.
Childrens Charity magicians, puppeteers, musicians and clowns bring a little magic, fun and laughter into the lives of children in hospital. They give monthly shows in over 150 hospitals and hospices throughout the UK. POD Childrens Charity has always believed that happy children get better quicker
With lots of help from so many people, POD’s Dream is nearly complete as we already work in 80% of the relevant hospitals and we are now looking to the future – a 100% coverage and more secure longer-term funding so that POD’s good work can continue into perpetuity.
Shirley has loved being one of the many POD entertainers who add fun to the Hospital's Children's wards performing with balloons and magic.......and proving that laughter is the best medicine for making children in hospital feel better.
