Hire a Hall

Ritchie’s Hall Hiring Tips

Some of the venues Ritchie’s performed at in 2018/19

If possible, when hiring a hall for a children’s birthday party, avoid big, echoey halls and look for venues with a car park for guests. Small village halls and church halls are great. Home parties are great too. For parties at home, I reccomend to invite no more than 15 children. I offer a 1 hour show for home parties.

Avoid town centre venues as they are very difficult for guests and parents to park in. Soft play centres are often chaotic and normally have stressed out staff that are keen to usher you quickly in and out for the other 3 parties that day.

Check that they have a kitchen and if you wish to serve alcohol to the grown-ups, check they don’t have a “no alcohol” policy.

Elmcroft Community Centre, Cheam. Great party venue! Smaller room best for birthday parties.

Booking 30 mins before and after the party is OK to set up/pack down, but an hour each side of the party times (especially before the party) is best for you if possible. Book the hall for 4 hours if you can. Ask a few friends/family to help with set up/pack down to move chairs, etc. 2 hours is the best length for a children’s birthday party.

Best to book Ritchie for the 2-hour party in a hall for a birthday party. If you do go for the 1-hour show, bring a sound system for after he has gone.

Book Ritchie before you book the hall. There are loads of halls around but only one Ritchie! “Oh no, you are booked already?! Can you cancel the other party?!” Sorry, no!

Birthday party tables and chairs arrangement for magic show.
Examples of how to set out the tables and chairs. Chairs for adults to watch the show makes a great atmosphere. It brings people together unlike chairs being round the edges.
