“Wow! Thank you so much for providing us with the most fantastic day at school! Having a Jester for our wow day at school was wonderful. An amazing introduction began the day setting the scene for the children .. you brought history alive. We could almost smell it! Then moving swiftly on to the ‘I can’ circus skills, every child left this session feeling positive about themselves. Finally, after lunch our medieval banquet which again you not only led and taught the children so much but also entertained with your magic and puppet show.
You are truly talented and an amazing Jester! We are so hoping that we can book you again next year. Many thanks again from the children & staff at St Marks VA Primary School W-S-Mare”
Wow day, Inspiration day, new topic day. The Fool Monty Jester is here to help.
I’ve been visiting schools to bring history to life since 2010. I can kick start your Wow day, Inspiration day or new topic day with a full day of fun. Using my historical knowledge and enthusiasm I can ignite your pupil’s interest in Castles, Kingdoms, Fairytales, Dragons and much more. They can also try their own hands at magic tricks and circus skills just like real Jesters did.
What can we expect?
KS1 – KS2 visits often mix an introductory magic show with a short session about Jesters, castles and Medieval life. Children can then have the chance to learn some real Jester skills from magic tricks to circus skills.
If you are having a Medieval banquet I can act as Herald and host. I can help the children understand the rules of the banquet hall, who would have sat where and why, who got the Salt as well as the types of food and drink they could expect to eat. After that it’s time to entertain them with magic tricks and juggling just like a real Fool would have done.
This is a Wow day, Inspiration day or new topic day that you will remember forever.
I pride myself on my historical knowledge, my ability to entertain and my unique humorous approach to the traditional school workshop & visit. If you would like to find out more

SCHOOL FUNDRAISING, PTA’S AND PARENT’S ASSOCIATIONS.
I also offer a range of services to help with your school fundraising.
FAIR & FETE ENTERTAINMENT
I can come to your fair/fete for 2 hours and provide a mixture of stilt walking, balloon modelling * and a magic or fire breathing show. I carry a money belt and charge 0.50p per balloon or £1.00 for a larger model. All of this money goes straight back to you. On average it makes £25 – 35 for you.
* please note balloon modelling is only suitable for smaller schools with less that 200 pupils as otherwise, it can lead to the entertainer doing nothing else all afternoon. I can however, arrange a separate balloon modeller to attend if you would like at an extra charge.
REWARD SHOWS AND CLASS TREATS
If you want to reward a class with a magic show, or a circus skills session I can do that for you. If you would like an Easter show or a Christmas show I can also provide that.
