The Hideaway has always been an ideal location for children's parties. Perfect for children aged 0-10, our parties offer parents the chance to provide an unforgettable experience for your children without the hassle. One parent said:

"My son Jamie had his 7th birthday party here yesterday. It was the best party we’ve ever had by miles. The staff were amazing and went above and beyond to be there for everything we needed, including finding something totally different for one of the children to eat who couldn’t eat from the party buffet. The buffet was beautiful and fresh with the perfect amount of food. Jamie picked a ‘NERF war’ for his party game and it really was so much fun, all the children and most of the adults got involved (some of them too involved haha!!) but it was fantastic!! The space is so big and clean with so much for them to do and play with. Thank you all so much for providing a party to remember!" Shauna Hancock - April 2018


Update: from September 2020

We are due to re-open as a play centre in September 2020, carefully following the government guidance to ensure that we can welcome back families whilst keeping everyone as safe as we possibly can. 

In light of current guidance we cannot:
 - Host an event which actively encourages family groups to mix. 
 - Allow groups of children from different bubbles to sit and eat together.
 - Allow children to blow out candles on a cake.

At the moment we cannot book in birthday parties in the way that we have done previously.


What you can do:
 - You can book as many children as you like onto one of our play sessions.
 - You can privately book the Hideaway for an entire session (if no other groups are already booked into that session). (cost £200 excluding food costs).
 - You can let us know that your group would like to sit on tables in the same area (reserved seating).
 - You can bring balloons and decorate your seating area.
 - You can book a party picnic lunch for all the children in your group. (£2.75 per child)
 - If privately booked, you may have a maximum of 30 children or 15 family groups. 
 - Parents must be present to supervise each family group and social distancing must be observed throughout.

Once government guidance changes and we are able to offer parties in the traditional way again, below is our pricing policy.
