The Birthday Booth

Midweek birthdays and birthday's for little people can be tricky! Making a birthday feel special when most people are at school or work can often feel a little bit like you're letting your child down - but we can fix all that! 

When you visit the Hideaway on your child's birthday, you can now book the Birthday Booth package! Your group of up to 6 will be seated in a specially decorated birthday booth so they feel VIP straight away. The booth has a hamper of goodies including some craft memory activities, sweet treats and a birthday crown. Our staff will bring a birthday cupcake and candle and help sing happy birthday to your child. As well of course plenty of play time, the price for the group also includes squash for the kids and tea and coffee for the grown-ups. 

The birthday booth is available at any time during our term-time operating hours, our team just need at least 24 hours to ensure they're ready for you. You can book the booth by emailing the party team on 

The booth costs £9.95 for the birthday child, plus £5.95 for additional children and £3.95 for grown-ups.
