At Pepper Pot Parties we are all creative people, experienced in working with children of all ages and passionate about making each party special and unique.
Pepper Pot Parties was founded by Rebecca Coates in 2010 after she had enjoyed working with children for more than 12 years.
Since graduating from London Studio Centre, Rebecca danced professionally all over the world and loved the creativity her performing career offered.
In between dancing however, she always found time to enjoy working with kids by teaching workshops and dance classes, facepainting, entertaining and even stilt-walking at children's events.
Rebecca currently lives in Melbourne, Australia and is enjoying life's adventures Down Under.
Despite being many miles away, she is hugely passionate about Pepper Pot Parties and with the support and help of Co-Director Hannah Crighton she is confident that we will continue to deliver fun-filled and action-packed fun for everyone!
Hannah has been working as an entertainer for Pepper Pot Parties since 2012 and more recently as Co-Director alongside Rebecca.
Hannah studied Music and Drama at University before moving to London and training in Acting Musical Theatre at the Central School of Speech and Drama.
She has worked as an actress and musician in the UK and Europe over the last 10 years as well as teaching singing and drama classes and running workshops in-between.
Hannah relishes the new skills she has gained through Pepper Pot Parties such as face painting, balloon modelling and a little bit of magic and likes nothing better than to spend an afternoon as a Princess or Pirate and playing party games!
