Your party has arrived!

As a party parent, please ensure you arrive 10 minutes before the party is due to commence to enable us to confirm the guest list with you in preparation for welcoming your guests. Please encourage your guests to arrive on time where we can then direct them to your seated party area.

Should your guests bring children that are not on the guest list they will be required to pay normal entrance prices for those children.

Your party will last 2 hours in total.

On arrival you will be greeted by the reception team who will show you over to your allocated party area and explain everything to you. One party host is allocated per party.

You may be provided with more than one party host depending on the type of party booked. Rest assured you can sit back and relax for the duration of the party.

Playtime will last 60 minutes for themed parties.

Playtime for non-themed parties will last 90 minutes.

After playtime, the party host will make a tannoy announcement to gather all the children together.

All announcements will ask the children to gather at the party table where they will need to take a seat.

For themed parties the announcement will gather the children to be led on to their chosen activity for 30 minutes.

The party food will be served in the form of a mixed hot and cold buffet (broken down per child: 1x fish finger, 2 x chicken nuggets, 3 x cocktail sausages, chips, crisps, a sandwich, 1 x  jelly & ice cream portion.) Before or after the children eat, the party host will bring out your cake (if you have provided one) and sing happy birthday to the birthday child.

This will have allowed the party host to cut your cake and place it in your party bags if you have supplied them, or we can provide these for you (at an extra £2 cost per bag).
