All thanks should go to you guys for what was the most fantastic party! Within an hour of the party finishing I must have had half a dozen texts from parents saying their kids thought it was the best party ever and given your number to a couple of them too! Despite the weather (which David thought gave it an extra edge!) you all remained completely positive and consequently so did the girls. They loved getting kitted out and all looked fantastic! You were all so patient and instructed them really clearly so everyone took
home a fantastic piece of art. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you from start to finish and most importantly Lola had the time of her life.
Thanks so much again
Lisa, David & Lola Cohen from Radlett
Thank you so much for the party yesterday. It was better than even my highest expectations. You guys were so organised and professional.The girls had the most amazing time and all their parents have called me to tell me how much their kids are raving about it. The explanations about how to do each stage of the graffiti were just fabulous and Jasmine had the most wonderful time.They all have such a great memento to take home of what was really a very unique experience. The large canvas that all Jasmine’s friends worked on for her is something that I think she will treasure for a long long time.
Amazing – am going to recommend you to EVERYONE and book you for Benjy’s party
Caroline Randall from Radlett
Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!
I just want to say a MASSIVE thank you ! what an amazing and memorable party you gave my son!!
You and your team were brilliant and I would highly recommend you.
The children had a great time and it is nice that they get to take their art home with them.
The canvas that all the children do as a gift to the birthday child is a very nice touch indeed
Lisa Bayley from Hemel Hempstead
Dear Stuart, thank you so much for the amazing graffiti party yourself & Jordan hosted for Zack on Saturday 6th October. He and all his friends had the most fantastic time with some of them declaring it was “the best party they’ve ever been to”. The use of the stencils meant that even the less artistic ones came away with a real sense of achievement and a lovely keepsake. Zack’s giant canvas, made by all his friends, now has pride of place on his bedroom wall.
Hayley Irow from Elstree
It was the BEST party ever! Everyone loved it:
birthday girl, friends, mums, dads, brothers and sisters! Thank you so so much.They all loved creating the pictures, getting an artwork to take home with them and the birthday girl is especially chuffed with her giant one too which looks amazing. I would do it all again in a flash! Even though it was seriously cold, no-one minded at all. Once dressed up in the all the gear (which was definitely part of the fun) everyone had such a great time spraying away and making such cool, interesting artworks. We will none of us ever forget it. Thank you thank you thank you. You guys are brilliant. And you did a great clean-up job too!
And seriously, thanks!
All the best,
Milly Burton from Willesden
We booked a ‘graffiti’ party for my eldests 10th birthday as he loved the idea but we didn’t quite know what to expect.After a couple of hours of marquee building in our garden 13 kids arrived.
Within minutes they were transformed into wannabe graffiti artists with overalls, masks and goggles. The 3 guys running the party were fantastic with the kids,demonstrating techniques and giving the shyer kids the confidence to be creative. My younger 2 kids were also included and made to feel special.
After an hour and a quarter all the children had made amazing canvasses they were really proud of and couldn’t wait to show their parents. The team were excellent and well prepared and left no mess.
My son absolutely loved the party. It is more expensive than your average ‘entertainer’ but well worth it!
Linzi Frankal from Kilburn
Thanks so much for a fab party – Rafs absolutely loved it!
Nicky Colton-Milne from Hampstead
Hi Stuart, we were really delighted with how it worked out. As you know we had limited space (and budget) to work with, and the canvasses were a great interactive addition to Lucy’s party, with some of her friends helping to paint it, and others adding messages. It will look fantastic on her wall!
Ros Brassey from Radlett
Hi Stuart, thanks again for giving Aoife a great party.
Mary Parr from Kingston Upon Thames
Hi Stuart, thanks again for all your hard work yesterday. The girls had a fabulous time and created some wonderful pieces. Freya is really delighted with her big canvas from everyone.
Sarah Setton from Bushey
It was so refreshing to book an entertainer for my daughter’s (Zoe’s) party who exceeded all my expectations and made the party truly fantastic! Stuart and his team arrived on time, were courteous and helpful and genuinely warm towards 30 nine year old girls all itching to get started. Stuart calmly explained the ropes to the girls (and had the patience to reassure the anxious ones) and then let them loose on their canvases. What ensued was the best party any of the girls had ever been to…they LOVED it!
Stuart’s laid back approach encouraged all of them to find their creative flair and they all went home with something unique and personal. The best part was the “thank you” canvas that they all made for the birthday girl, an extraordinary reminder of a day that we will never forget.
For us though, the fun didnt end there…we asked Stuart to come to our home and work on a frame for her “thank you” canvas. Once again, Stuart arrived on time and was an absolute pleasure to have in our home. He worked hard all day and by the end of the day our daughter’s room had been transformed.
Stuart and his team are great and it was a fantastic party and a great present!!
Laura Hilton from Highgate
Thank you to Stuart and Rosie for making Louis’ birthday party so fantastic. Within minutes of the children leaving, I had texts from some of the mothers asking for the contact details.
You made all 32(!) kids feel completely at ease, dealt with the potential pitfalls of that number of over excited little boys in a calm way – I assure you I would have been screaming at them – and they all committed completely to creating their own works of art.
For their part, my children’s ambition has changed from professional footballer to Banksy – look forward to seeing their work on bridges and walls all over London!!
Emma Myers from Hampstead
Thank you so much for such a great party. Stuart kept 12 boys thoroughly absorbed and quiet for over an hour. Even though it rained for a bit he had everything organised and covered within the marquee. The children were really proud of their artwork and the brilliant thank you canvas shall take pride of place in my son’s bedroom.
Everything was cleared away with no mess, thank you for all your hard work.
Claire Coe from Newmarket
Thank you so much for making my daughter’s 9th birthday party so memorable. The kids loved using the techniques to produce some amazing, effective pieces of art, with many saying they had never experienced anything like it before.My son enjoyed producing an “arsenal” canvas, with a bit of help from Mike, as well as taking the opportunity to customise his scooter! We all had a fantastic day and, as a parent, I have to say this was the easiest, stress-free, most enjoyable party I have organised.
Laura Curtis from Barnet
Stuart, thank you so much for a great party…. Charlotte absolutely loved it and from what I hear from the other mothers, so did the other girls!! It was a pleasure for me as you did all the hard work and I really could enjoy watching them all have so much fun.
Tanya Fox from Stanmore
Stu, a huge thank you for yesterday’s party – was “the best party ever!” I am reliably informed by every single one of the kids! Renu and I had a brilliant time too – enjoyed it so much. Will spend most of the weekend deciding where to hang our works of art!!
You and Mike were so brilliant with all of us and we can’t thank you enough. Good luck with your amazing enterprise!
All the best,
Emma Hoskyns from Chiswick
Stuart, it was brilliant!
Adrian Webster from Maidstone
Thank you again for a fabulous party!
We made a Bat Mitzvah party for 80 girls.
Stuart and his team were super, said they would be there at 7am on a Sunday morning and they were! Despite the challenging weather of torrential rain they coped brilliantly.
The girls has an amazing time- they loved getting dressed in overalls, hair bags and masks!
And to top it all off no need for going home goodie bags or gifts, each girl went home with a lovely piece of art!
Would definitely recommend for a great party! Thank you Stuart and co!
Shira Gilbert from Barnet
Mike did a fantastic job (with a rather boisterous group of boys). Thanks very much for a fantastic party, Stuart
Alex Araujo from Richmond
Stuart, I just wanted to write and thank you and your team for all your hard work. The graffiti party was without doubt the best birthday party my daughter (who has just turned 12) has had yet, and it was a fantastic way for her to bond and hang-out with all the kids in her new school year.
Birthday parties can be stressful for mummies, but you made the organisation effortless and the communication with the children fun. They were all over the moon with the art that they took home with them.
Jane Robinson from Muswell Hill
Big THANK YOU for providing a totally awesome birthday package and stepping up to the mark on supplying the BEST 10 year olds party ever (we the parents managed to claim hero status thanks to you guys). Quinn and his friends had the most fantastic and exciting time ever. Every expectation and more was met by you and Mike from both the children and adults alike. You guys made Plymouth rock out loud, mid November had no effect on the amount of outside fun we had. Our five year old daughter has already said she wants a Graffiti party for her 6th birthday. Quinn said it was extreme all the way and got better as he learned how to create graffiti art, even the kids who don’t have natural flair produced awesome artwork.
Thank you both most brilliantly
Quinn, Matt & Shay Duncombe from Plymouth
Thank you so much for the wonderful Graffiti Party for my son’s birthday last weekend. I can’t recommend Stuart and Michael highly enough. They took time and patience explaining each step of the process to the children which completely engaged them from the start and then allowed them to be creative and free with encouragement and guidance if they needed it. I’ve never seen such a focused bunch of kids and the results were amazing. Apart from the whole event being completely stress free for us parents we’ve all come away with some fabulous art that has gone straight up on all our walls!
Theresa Larche’ from Belsize Park
What a fantastic party! From the moment the children arrived to get dressed up in their ‘onesies’, masks and shower caps they were so excited to get going. It was wonderful to see their canvasses evolve as they became more confident, and the fact that you can spray over mistakes is a huge bonus! They were really excited about taking their graffiti art home (they really were impressive) and my daughter is particularly thrilled with her huge ‘thankyou’ canvas which all the children contributed to, a fabulous memento of a great party. Thanks for your enthusiasm and patience, the easiest party we’ve ever had!
All the best
Melinda Athinodorou from Finchley
Many thanks to Stuart for making Harry’s 11th birthday party amazing fun! The organisation and the execution of the party was wonderful and we didn’t have to worry about a thing!! The kids really enjoyed learning how to build up their graffiti image and everyone was blown away by the end results! The parents couldn’t believe it when they saw what their sons were bringing home. We would definitely use Graffiti Parties again!
Karen Gillingwater from Paddington
Just to say a big thank you to you and Mike. What a great party! The most chilled out one we’ve ever had for our boys! And some real works of art created!
Claire Fine from Golders Green
Dear Stuart, thank you so much for all the hard work you did with our pupils during your time with us at Fairmead. It was a really enjoyable and interesting experience both for pupils and staff ! The end result looks absolutely brilliant and has really enhanced what was a horrible looking building! Many thanks once again.
Alison Taylor, Assistant Head Teacher, Fairmead School, Yeovil
Thank you so much for the amazing workshop, the guys were brilliant and the day was a huge success, we have so many students coming already to ask when there will be another one
Wendy Fagen, Lammas School and Sports College, Leyton
We’ve had a lot of thank you’s from the families saying what a marvellous time they had. That’s what it’s all about. You all gave such a sterling effort – you were wonderful. You were definitely very popular with the kids. It was great to see how enthusiastic and involved the kids were in the graffiti artwork
Sarah Robinson, Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity
We had an excellent day with the two guys you sent along –
it was fun
Nicola King, Youth & Community Participation Officer
We all had a great time, and the kids loved it – I really feel that it was such a positive experience for them – they are beginning to understand that we care what they think and how they feel!
Anouska Fowler, Hamond’s High School
You guys were fantastic with the young people that came along and everyone is very pleased with the final result
Polly Jeffcoat, Torbay Youth Arts Development, Torquay
We had a really enjoyable day – the kids all seemed to enjoy it and we had some really positive feedback from them
Rose Palmer, Longlevens Teenage Club
A big thank you from everyone at the Phoenix Centre for a great couple of days doing graffiti projects. Our patients all had a great time and were really engaged in the works. Staff and patients alike agree that it was a very successful project. We will look forward to working with you again in the future.
Sarah Davis, The Phoenix Centre, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust
Just to say thank you so much for coming to our school today. All of the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are very proud of what they have achieved.

The young people and ourselves really enjoyed it, it was a great day

Thank you so much for the workshop yesterday – the boys really enjoyed it and gave great feedback
Zara Wright, Southfield School, Wokingham
Firstly thank you so much for such great fun on Friday. Everyone has said how much they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and what a great idea it was.
Sarah Cooke, Events Coordinator, Adecco UK & Ireland, London
Firstly just to say thank you once again for an absolutely fantastic session! The kids all had a great time and we definitely saw some creative genius being unleashed on those canvasses. I was incredibly impressed by your efficiency and professionalism in organising and setting up the session, coupled with the fact that you were still able to relate to the kids and make it exciting and inspiring for them.
Liora Wittner, Woodside Park Synagogue, London
We wanted to do something a little different to celebrate a recent project success and decided to ask Graffiti Events to come in a host a session for the team. We were blown away by how fun this experience can be. Both Stuart and Michael gave us an understanding of how to use the equipment and basic technique and then set us on our way. They both really helped us think through what we were trying to express which made for a really rich experience. Highly recommended
Chris Gamble| Internal Communications Manager
Hi Stuart and Avril,
Thank you so much for the party today, it was fabulous. All the kids had a great time, feedback has been brilliant and the kids art work was amazing. Loved seeing all the different ideas the kids cam out with.
Thank you for Zac’s picture, that was a much better option than him doing it!!!
Hope you had a safe journey back.
Zoe & Nadia from Finchley
Thank you so much! What a fabulous party – Mike was great and everything very professional. Noah and his friends had the best time and sun shone too!!!!
Best wishes and thanks.
Victoria Shaw from Hampstead
I just wanted to email to thank you, and Michael, for a fantastic party yesterday. The girls had a great time & made some fantastic artwork. A couple of the girls who finished quickly said they wished they’d taken more time over their canvases & made them better! They all said it was brilliant!
Thank you so much & I am sure I will be in touch again in the future when Libby is a bit older & ready for a graffiti party!
Tanya Bohm from Borehamwood
Samuel, Martin & I just wanted to say a BIG thank you for yesterday! We were extremely impressed with your professionalism and how you engaged all the kids throughout the party. All the children loved the party and some said it was the best party they had ever been to!!!!! We were so amazed by the canvasses they all produced and when it was pick up time lots of the parents could not believe how fab their children’s art work was. So, a huge thanks again, we hope you enjoy your hols and we will definitely be recommending you to everyone we meet!
Sharon Train from Whitley Bay
A huge thank you for your work with my class, it was really interesting to watch them work and they were really proud with the results they could take home at the end.
Mrs Miriam Cook
Geography Subject Leader
Fairley House School, London
Thank you yesterday the children had a fantastic time. I’ve seen some budding Artists amongst them.
We will be recommending your services.
Mavis Shakespeare, House Of God Ministry, Feltham
Just wanted to drop you a line to say a big thank you for the party you guys put on for us on Saturday.
Mike was great and thankfully the sun was shining! Everyone really enjoyed the experience and loved the fact they could take their artwork home. Not sure we have uncovered any potential Banksy’s but you never know!
Louisa Wood from Hanwell
I would like to say a big thank you for making Sara’s party so enjoyable. The girls loved it. And it was wonderful to see them all participating and having a good time. The gazebos were great. We really appreciated the time you took to set up, make sure everything was safe to use and explain to the kids how to use the spray-paints.
The parents who came to collect their children were very impressed by the whole setup. So much so, that I received several texts enquiring about your details as they were thinking of having a similar graffiti party.
I’m thinking it might be an idea to a graffiti party for my 40th as it’s quite different from the norm. I will let you know in due course.
Thank you again and good luck with your future endeavours,
Mrs Le’at Borger from Edgware
Stuart thanks for the amazing job that you and Avril did last week.
The kids were so enraptured by your presentation and learnt valuable new skills. They were kept busy from start to finish and were so proud of their finished artworks.
I was delighted that we booked you and I would throughly recommend you to all my friends and family. After 15 years of doing parties it definitely rates as one of our best ever.
Your set up and professionalism are second to none and you are both delightful people to have around.
I hope we meet again
Katie Cooper from St Johns Wood
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for arranging the most fantastic birthday party for Sahira yesterday. She and her friends had an amazing time and were very proud of their artistic creations (as were their parents)! Sahira was especially pleased with the thank you canvas – a nice touch and keepsake for the birthday girl! You were so patient with them, clearly explaining the techniques but also allowing them the freedom to explore and develop their ideas. So, thank you for your patience and your refreshing approach towards teaching. You are a true professional!
Shamima from Barnet
It was a really good graffiti party today. Thankyou very much for the time and patience on this lovely Saturday afternoon. Stuart was a real professional and knew what he was doing to make a really safe and enjoyable day and the approach to the day was a really good one, and the general business model to this is a really good one. So, thanks Stu
I strongly recommend Graffiti Events
John Helliwell from Plymouth
Thank you so much for Monday’s workshop! It was brilliant!
The children loved everything about it – wearing the protective gear, watching your demo working on easels, spray painting, using stencils, everything! They got so much from it & were so eager to tell their parents all about it at the end of the day. I’ve had some really good feedback from parents too; which is always nice!
As far as a school trip/visitor goes, it was on the pricey side; however, it was worth every penny for what you provided & what the children got out if it! I’ll definitely be pushing for it again on the curriculum! We were really impressed with how much you & your wife supported each child with their own artwork, rather than letting them get on with it or leaving myself & my TA to support them. Makes a huge difference!
I know you have lots of testimonials on your website anyway, but if you want more, we will happily add to it!
Jo & all at Martley Primary, Worcestershire
Dear Stuart and Avril,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank for running your graffiti party at our school. It was such a fantastic morning, the kids loved it! We are studying the history of art and wanted to finish on a wow by looking at Banksy and giving the children an opportunity to try graffiti – you made sure we surpassed my expectations and finished on a massive wow! You and Avril were so patient, understanding and informative – no question or problem was too much – you supported all thirty children with a calmness and expertise that was brilliant to watch.
The children loved the whole morning, after watching your skilful demonstration the children were itching to get going. They found it very difficult but with your support, a few mistakes and I am pleased to say, a determination to keep going. The children produced a piece of art they can be proud of, a piece of art that will adorn their walls not one that gets put into mum’s special memory box!!
You really made our topic come alive, my only criticism is that I hadn’t found you years ago because I already planning how we can use you again!
Head of School
I have now held three graffiti art parties in the last couple of years for my children. The great thing about them is that they appeal to all ages of child and both girls and boys. I have three children and my youngest was 10 and my eldest 14 when they had their parties and the youngest had attended one of Stu’s parties aged 8. Whether the children are artistically inclined or not with Stu’s help and the use of the many stencils he provides all the children find a subject that appeals to them and are able to produce some really good work, which they can then take home.
Stu has a very nice manner with the children and is able to keep them all interested in what they are doing. He and his wife Avril have been reliable and flexible with timings and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
Sharon Cheek from Bromley
Myself, the children, and the other parents, were bowled over by the graffiti workshop party that you brought to us in October – thank you so much! The girls were absolutely hooked from the moment you dressed them up (the cool bandanas went down a storm!), to the fabulous teaching and guidance you gave them to create their very individual masterpieces, to the stunning finished products that they all took home. I have no idea how you and Avril kept 15 noisy 11 year old girls so entertained and engaged for so long, I think they would happily have carried on all afternoon! It was a real pleasure to give the kids such a treat, but also such a useful, interesting, and creative experience. Thank you!
Heather Baldwin Tanner from Henley Upon Thames
Thanks again for a brilliant party for Lucy on Saturday. Everyone really enjoyed it. There was a very happy atmosphere, and amazingly it was the quietest party I have ever organised, because they were all so absorbed (an unexpected bonus!).
Fiona Totty from Wimbledon
Yesterday’s party was a huge success. Tali and her brother, Avi had such a great time learning a new skill. Tali was thrilled that her friends customised some furniture from her room.
Thank you again!
Wendy Notowicz from Elstree
Thank you so much for doing Katie’s hen do – she had a great time and really enjoyed the graffiti! It was great fun and something really different that everyone enjoyed.
Claire Owen from Weston-on-the-Green
Thank you so much for running the most fabulous party. The girls loved it and thought it was so original and fun.
You managed to keep the girls engaged and entertained for the full 90 minutes and you ran the party really efficiently and professionally.
Thank you again.
Tali Greenbaum from Golders Green
Thank you so much for creating such a fabulous afternoon for Rhea and her friends. They were thrilled with the graffiti painting and several parents asked for your contact details which I passed on. Again, thanks for making her birthday so very memorable for all of us.
Sejal Wasani from Northwood
Just wanted to say what a brilliant party we had, everything was so professional and organised which made our day very stress free. The children looked fab and safe in their “cool” graffit overalls/masks and goggles and we could see they thoroughly enjoyed creating their masterpieces which are scattered around lots of homes in SW London..
Thank you for a brilliant party !
Amanda Cawthra from Clapham
