Find out how owner, James Sinclair founded Partyman

There was once a scrawny boy called James Sinclair who lived in Elm Park. James had always known that he wanted to be a children’s entertainer and then at 15 years of age something strange happened… James became ‘Jimbo the Partyman’ and from his Nan’s spare room, The Partyman Company was born! By 2005, James was extremely busy and realised that he could venture out on his own rather than work alongside the entertainer he had been with. So James took on other entertainers to work for him, including ‘Active Aaron’ and they became The Partyman Team!

On 25th May 2007, at just 21 years and 11 months, James opened Partyman World of Play in Basildon. Partyman World is the only playcentre in the UK to be opened that is operated entirely by professional children’s entertainers, and also the first of its kind to be opened and owned by someone so young. Then in July 2008, The Partyman Company and Partyman World proudly became winners at ‘The Basildon Business Awards’ in the category of ‘New Company’.
