Due to the new safety measurements and restrictions issued by the UK government, we have taken the decision to temporarily offer only a limited number of our party packages.

birthday in 2020?

We have three packages available to book, the 'Post-Lockdown Party Package', 'Exclusive-Use' and 'Build a Bear'. The add-on of Build-a-Bear to the Exclusive package is also available. The party room will be unavailable for the rest of 2020, however you will be given a reserved area for the children to eat/drink.

Yes! We are offering all customers who pre-book their party, the option to pay only a £20 deposit to secure the booking.

All our packages are a minimum of 10 children, (including the birthday child) except Build a Bear which is a minimum of 8.

No, we are not able to offer any refunds on our parties.

Please see our terms and conditions page. 


Can I bring my own food in? 

No, due to insurance reasons we do not allow you to bring any of your own food or drink to include in your child’s birthday buffet.
