CHARACTER EVENTS

Here at Rainbow Productions we are privileged to manage the personal appearances of over 100 famous children’s characters, exclusively under licence on behalf of brand owners.

Please note that these well-known character costumes are not available to hire; we take care of all aspects of the character’s visit for you – find out more in the ‘What Services are included when a character is booked’ section, below.

Our licensed character costumes are available to book to attend a wide range of events.  Whether you’re looking for a licensed character to make personal appearances at a shopping centre, or need a mini show as part of your festival line-up, we can advise on character choices that are best suited to your event.

Please note that we do not supply characters for private children’s parties or similar events.

This page gives you further information about booking a children’s character for your event.
