What Makes Fred & Friends Special

A true entertainer

Fred is a funny, natural entertainer who can engage any audience. His magic illusions are flawless, and his shows are fast paced and fun

Engaging & educational

Magic is an ancient art, but Fred has kept up with the times, making use of the latest technology in his shows and magic disco parties.

Fun for young & old

Whether it’s a group of 4 year olds, tweens at a disco or adults at a 50th birthday party, Fred can tailor his show to suit any age group.

Fred's friends

the fun starts here!

Elvis the bird

This multi-coloured mischievous bird is much more of a hindrance than a help to poor Fred.

Geoffrey the dragon

Geoffrey’s bad manners and hilarious outbursts often land Fred in a whole heap of trouble.

Nellie the elephant

Squirting and spraying water, naughty Nellie has guests crying tears of laughter.


He’s a duck-billed, web-footed, funny-looking platypus - guests love the catchy platypus song.


what our fans have to say

Thanks again for today, it was brilliant. I have been at this school 10 years and that was right up there with the best moments. Mr Bell really enjoyed it also. Take care and have a great summer.
Chris Barlow - Bearwood Primary School

Thank you so very much for entertaining the children yesterday at Plus Three Nursery Farley Wood's party to celebrate our 32nd Anniversary. The children had a fantastic time with lots of fun and giggles as did all the team too. Thank you for helping to make the day special.
Heather Woad - Nursery Manager

We love Fred in the Shed and so do all of our kids. He makes the children laugh, has them all under control and even manages to get the parents involved with some tongue in cheek humour to boot. We highly recommend him for corporate events and look forward to seeing him again at Christmas.
Tracy Adams - Avnet

Thank you again for keeping the children so well entertained at our wedding. We were so very grateful, and I know other parents were too. All the best!

Over the past 8 years Fred in the Shed has become a permanent and very welcome fixture at the annual Caversham Church Fete in Caversham Court. His brand of irreverent humour, which is frequently cheeky but never rude, is loved by children and adults alike. He is very good with children; his walkabout magic and balloon modelling are always popular
Nigel Smith - Chairman, Caversham Church Fete

Just say a big thank you for your performance this morning, the children and parents really enjoyed your show. I can easily say you are the best and funniest children's entertainer we have ever seen. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.
John & Joanna Roberts (Max's mum & dad)

Roger and I cannot thank you enough for making the boys' party such a success. I haven't cried with laughter so many times within two hours in a very long time! We thought you got it spot on, you read and handled our boys with such care and you controlled the rabble beautifully. You were a huge hit! Miles said his favourite guest today was the platypus.
Roger, Lorna, Ed & Miles

Fred in The Shed helped us provide a great event for our local community. We had no doubt it would be great event for our community but didn’t realise just how popular and how professional the experience would be. We would thoroughly recommend the Fred in The Shed theatre show for anyone looking to attract a crowd for an event, or organisation for the younger audience.
Andrew Webb - Jennett's Park Community Centre

I just wanted to thank you again for Henry's party yesterday. My family and friends and the children all had a fantastic time and everyone said as they left how fun it was. The thing I wanted to thank you for the most though was the way that you dealt with Henry. He has been quite unsettled over the past week or so with the imminent arrival of a sibling and was totally overwhelmed at the start of the party but your sensitive and gentle approach soon lured him in and he had the most wonderful time. He is still talking about having to stand on a chair for his cake and all the dads dancing!
Katie Hatherall

Just wanted to say a big thank you. Everyone really enjoyed the show and you made Bella’s birthday very special.
Maria Anderson

I just wanted to thank you for Willow's party on Saturday - she had an amazing time and so did all her friends! Also thanks for entertaining the parents so much - I've had so much great feedback on the party from them all. They all thought it was really funny and of course we all loved the dads dancing together! Thanks again.

I've been meaning to email you since Thomas' party on the 19th of August, but things seem to have been hectic as ever, with a week’s camping from Monday the 21st!! (Thankfully it didn't rain and we had a fun filled week!!) Anyway, wanted to extend our massive thanks once again on giving Thomas the best party ever!! He absolutely loved it, as did Chloe and us! So many people have told us what a brilliant party it was, appealing to both the children and the adults!! Simply Hilarious!! Thank you.
