birthday parties

We offer two types of party;

Fun & Games For children ages 5+. You get an hour of activities in the main sports hall followed by 30 minutes in our activity suite where you have the opportunity to put on a party tea. We set the room up in advance so the tables and chairs are out ready for you, with plastic colourful plates and cups on the table. We provide the staff to run the activities in the main hall and then hand them over to you to supervise when they are in the activity suite. We can supply invitations if you wish, please just ask for these when you make the booking at Reception.

Soft play For children under 5's. You get the same set up as our regular Fun & Games party but the party itself is taloured for the children of a younger age with two bouncy castles, soft play equipment and little trikes/bikes/scooters.

Minimum children required for the party are 12 and maximum is 20.

The cost is £5.00 per head with a £30 deposit is taken at time of booking, with the balance being paid on the day of the party (you pay for the amount of children confirmed the Thursday before)

Parties take place on a Saturday or Sunday.

Please contact reception for details on 01905 429900

Thank you to all the staff that helped out for my son's birthday party. He loved it and all the kids had a great time, the venue and toys were perfect for them! All the staff were really helpful and made the party stress free and enjoyable for us.
