Hello – I’m Wayne, otherwise known as my stage persona of Captain Chaos!
I’m an expert in children’s party entertainment and the skill is quite literally in my DNA!
And I consider myself extremely lucky to call this my full time job. I absolutely love working with children and making them laugh, in fact I’m a big kid myself!
I act the fool, I use a LOT of different wigs during a party, I dye my beard in all sorts of strange colours, and I LOVE getting involved in making your child’s party special and enjoyable!
I’ve always loved entertaining and have been a full time wedding and party DJ for more years than I can remember. But my real love is entertaining the younger guests because it’s so much fun and so much less serious.
I enjoy talking to them on THEIR level (yes, bogies and snot will probably be mentioned!), and have even been known to have conversations on a microphone with them!
I make fun WITH them but NEVER make fun OF them. I make them laugh, I make them smile, I let them enjoy the party!
I’m a Scout Leader in my spare time (from the 6 year old Beavers to the teenage Scouts) so know a little of what they enjoy musically and in the way of games. Because of this role, I also take things like safeguarding and health and safety seriously. I aim to make the party fun….but I’ll ALWAYS ensure it’s safe to do each game as well!
Because I work in a lot of safeguarding environments, you won’t see too many selfies or videos of me doing what I do best….it just wouldn’t be right and proper. The images on this website were provided by the host of a party who had photo release permission for the images to be used.
I’m also a very proud Grandad (yes I’m old…and the kid’s at a party will very often age me at around 90 years old!).
All of this means that I care a LOT about the children at the party and make sure that they’re both enjoying themselves, but safe at the same time! If a game or activity looks like it could get out of hand, I’ll stop it on the spot rather than risk injury to one of the guests.
I have literally thousands of children’s parties under my belt, and every one of them has been a big success. That said, I learn from each and every party I work at and am constantly refining what I do….even after 30+ years of doing the job!
As for the DNA bit…my five-greats grandfather on my Mother’s side of the family was Arthur Rose, also known as Professor Roselia…a Punch and Judy puppeteer on the Suffolk coast from 1890 to 1940! If that’s not a history of children’s entertainment….
