Kate is here to make your kids' sleepover party dreams come true


Hello! Welcome to Bells & Whistles. After more than 15 years of creating, planning, styling and delivering high-end, one-off events, I've decided to focus exclusively on the magical world of children’s sleepover parties.

Building on a background in entertaining little ones and a love of wildlife and adventure, Bells & Whistles combines a creative side with the sort of track record in organising and delivering events you can utterly rely on.

When I'm not creating sleepover parties, you’re likely to find me combing Brighton’s beaches for shells with my two-year old, or illustrating my next children’s book!

What our Party Parents say...

Easter was magical thanks to Bells & Whistles!

Kate was so calm setting up, and I just loved all of the attention to detail, from ethically sourced materials, to beautiful Liberty print, and the gorgeous flowers and bunting, and magical fairy lights. My son just loved playing with the make believe fire and mess tins, and my daughter spent hours in role play camping with her dolls, and then relaxed with cupcakes in her pjs. My children's first comments were 'This is the best day ever' and they spent so long just exploring, it really was breathtaking to see for the first time! - Ceri, mum to Jude & Eden
