Everything you need to know about being a host

Last Updated: Sep 10, 2014 02:25PM BST
Q : Do I need to pay anything to host a Come Round party?
A : No however for some parties you maybe asked to pre-order or purchase the item beforehand in order to qualify as a host. We send party hosts completely free of charge to their door-steps a lovely party pack full of goodies for hosts to share with their party guests. Each Come Round party has a different party pack and unless Come Round is providing party snacks, drinks and decorations, then this is something that party hosts may need to pay for (depending, of course, on how generous a party host you are!).

Q : What’s the catch?
A : All we ask of Come Round hosts is that
(a)   You all have a good time (obviously)
(b)   You talk, talk and talk about the party to as many people as possible both before and after the party online and in the real world!
(c)  You take part in the party activities
(d)   You and your guests answer some questions which we’ll ask you  all to complete shortly after the party. That’s all – there’s no catch!

Q : Will Come Round pay me back my expenses for putting on a party?
A : Sorry, no. We’ll get you on your way with a great party pack for you and your guests. However, you may need to buy snacks, drinks, decorations and other party bits n pieces.
Q : How old do I need to be to host a Come Round party?
A : You need to be over 18. If you are under 18 but over 13 years old, then you must get the permission of your parents or guardians before applying to host a Come Round party.
Q : Do you ever run parties for under 13 year olds?
A : Yes we do. And in those circumstances, anyone under 13 years old is required to give us the telephone number of their parent or guardian when applying to host a Come Round party. Come Round will then telephone all under 13 year olds’ parents or guardians and as such under 13s will only be considered as party hosts once Come Round has obtained verbal telephone permission from their parents or guardians. The parents or guardians of under 13 year old hosts are also responsible for obtaining the permission from the parents or guardians of any invited party guests who are under 13 years old.
Q : How do you pick who gets to host a Come Round party?
A : We need to match the right party hosts to the requirements of our clients (i.e. the lovely people who are supplying all the free party packs). For example, if they tell us they just want female hosts, then sorry lads – better luck next time!
Q : How do I know I’ve been chosen to host? Will I receive an email if I’ve not been chosen to host?
A : Yes. You’ll get an email from us giving you good news or bad news. Often those pesky junk mail filters put our emails in your junk mail folders, so do check in there to see if you’ve been picked. Or simply just log into your Come Round account to see if you have been “Shortlisted” or “Not Shortlisted”
Q : I’ve deleted the email you sent me telling me I’ve been picked to host a Come Round party. Can you re-send it to me?
A : No need! Just log into your Come Round account.
Q : Do I need to have a Come Round account in order to apply to be a host of one of your parties?
A : Yes you will need to have a registered Come Round account in order to apply to be a host of any of our parties.
Q : Can more then one person in my household have a Come Round account?
A : No, only one account per household.
