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.
Update: from May 17th 2021
We are due to re-open as a play centre according to the government roadmap on May 17th. Although we don't currently have the full set of guidance available, we are anticipating that from this date the rule of 6 or 2 households will apply to the Hideaway, meaning that children's parties will not be available from that date. However, from June 21st it is anticipated that the burden of restrictions will be lifted and that children's parties will be able to resume!
We are now taking provisional bookings for after June 21st. Bookings can be made here with a deposit payment of £50 for weekend parties. For mid-week parties please email the party team here. If your party cannot go ahead as planned due to unexpected further restrictions, you will have the option of receiving a full refund or agree changes in light of the added restrictions. Additional cancellation terms are below.
