What do I need to provide for Cody?
Cody’s shows are all self-contained. You just need to provide the space and the audience. On occasion a 3 pin socket powerpoint may be required. Cody shows are entertaining for all ages from 5 to 105 and he encourages all to remain for show where they will have fun, and laugh. It is wonderful for children to interact with adults having fun and engaging with the show – now that’s the magic. If the adults are not going to attend the show, please note as part of child first and child protection policy, Cody will require at least one other adult to remain for the entire show.
How long does it take for Cody to set-up? For home parties it does not take long as Cody comes fully self-contained and is set up in minutes. For larger parties and venues where backdrops and sound are needed, longer get-in and set-up time is required & it is best to discuss with Cody what might be required.
How many children can attend the party? For Cody to create a fun atmosphere a minimum of 7-8 children is ideal. There is no upper limit so if you have the space the more the merrier, however if it is a very large event sound equipment may be required and will add to the cost
What does Cody charge? Prices of packages will vary depending on type of event, numbers & location (see packages options here).
Cody is often asked “Can we afford to have you at our event?”He replies “Can you afford not to?” Every party, event, concert, show, launch, special occasion or celebration wishes to create an energy, memory, emotion and if it does not have an impact it soon gets lost in all the noise of today’s busy world. Cody’s earliest memory is as a 5 year old. It is his dad doing magic with cards which sparked a lifetime love of magic and a lasting treasured memory. No matter what age, connections and interactions can leave lasting impressions and memories that no one can take away. When organising & hosting your events / parties think about what it is that creates the atmosphere, memories & emotions which is the real magic. It’s the intangible things that count most and last longest. What do you value most – getting it done or getting it right?
