Magical Quests North

Magical Quests North provides children’s parties across Yorkshire. Our professional actors put your child at the heart of the adventure with an exciting and fun filled experience they will remember forever.

We offer a wide variety of themed parties including pirates, superheroes and all the well-loved classics, from Alice in Wonderland to Beauty and the Beast. All our parties last the full two hours: children see their favourite characters come to life, and are taken on a ‘Quest’ where they help resolve the story, with plenty of active games and challenges along the way.

Our actors are fully costumed and will work in any venue, including your home. We dress the venue to create magical settings for the story to take place. We are flexible and can accommodate special requests.  We also offer gentler parties for pre-schoolers and dance parties or detective mystery parties for older children.

Our package includes invitations and a certificate for every child attending, and we do not charge per child. Prices start at £150 (one actor for two hours).
