A Birthday party at Stafford Castle can be both entertaining and educational!  Children can choose to come in fancy dress and are also welcome to try our dressing up clothes including knights tabbards and medieval dresses.  During the party the children will be taken outside, weather permitting,  to view the site and visit the castle keep.  Once in the keep the children take part in a treasure hunt and the birthday child will be part of a knighting ceremony.  After marching down the hill to the visitor centre, the children can then partake of their banquet (supplied by parents). A CD player is available if you wish to use it for party games etc.

The maximum number of children attending the party is 20 and 10 adults. Parents are to provide food and drinks along with any decorations, table cloths, cups and plates etc.  The Visitor Centre will provide tables and benches for seating. The birthday child will also receive a small gift from the Visitor Centre.  Please be aware that we cannot facilitate helium balloons or indoor firework candles.
