"Santa Mark brought magic to our event with his real beard, twinkling eyes, warm smile and jolly ho-ho-ho. We cannot recommend him enough, kids of all ages took to him instantly. We had annual criers willingly sitting in his lap after a minute of interaction with this experienced Grandpa. We did the more traditional dress but he mentioned having other options while he was over if that’s something you’re interested in. Hire him today, what a gem!" Sarah
"Santa Mark was thrust into a crowd of about 1500 people and he handled it with grace and style. He was wonderful with kids and adults and has the perfect impish twinkle!"
"I booked Santa Mark for a photo-shoot and he was a wonderful presence on set. Completely in character, warm, genuine and a pleasure to work with. He went out of his way to say hello to everyone who walked by and was so natural on set. We will definitely be booking Santa Mark again!"
