Parties!

We offer 2 types of birthday parties at The PlayTown, exclusive use and smaller mini parties. Please see the relevant information for each option below.

EXCLUSIVE HIRE

Looking to take the stress out of party planning? You’ll get The PlayTown to yourself for 1.5 or 2 hours and we’ll provide a beautifully laid party table laden with food that’s perfect for little ones. Each child will get sandwiches, crisps, jelly, chocolate sweets, fruit, veg sticks and dip. For children under 2 we can tailor the food slightly. You are welcome to bring and serve your own (nut free) birthday cake. 

Venue hire: £175 (1.5 hours) or £225 (2 hours)
Catering*:    £6.50 per child (minimum of 20 children)
Duration:     1.5 hours or 2 hours
Capacity:     35 children maximum (77 people in total inclusive of adults)
Times:           2 hour parties on Saturdays and Sundays: 3.30pm-5.30pm 
                        1.5 hour parties on Sundays only: 3.30pm-5pm 

For parties we normally structure the time so that children get 1 hour of play followed by 30 minutes to eat (and sing happy birthday), then an additional 30 minutes of play before they leave. For 1.5 hour parties children get 1 hour of play followed by 30 minutes to eat (and sing happy birthday) before leaving. 

Due to the set-up time required, you will only be able to enter 15 minutes before the party start time and your guests will be only be able to enter 5 minutes before the party start time. 

*Please note that we do not offer self-catered parties. Catering is mandatory.
