Why have all the mess at home, when you can hire one of our rooms and have a great party with us! We have a number of themed parties to choose from for boys and girls, from toddlers to teenagers. Alternatively, if you're planning your own party entertainment, we offer hourly room hire rates.

    Byron/Bailey

    £13.50 per hour
    2-hour party, 3 hours hire £40.50

    The Byron and Bailey rooms, located on the ground floor, are suitable for smaller parties of up to 30 people including soft play, disco parties and magicians.

    The Byron Suite

    £17.50 per hour
    2-hour party, 3 hours hire £52.50

    The Byron Suite (Byron and Bailey rooms combined), benefits from a kitchenette area that can be secured with a baby gate and double doors leading to a private patio area that make it ideal for those parties where the Portland is too big, the Byron or Bailey is too small - the Byron Suite will be just right!


    Disco, Magic, Jewellery Making, Hair and Beauty, Science, Singing and Dancing, Computer, and Go Kart themes are possible in all of our rooms.
    Box castles can be booked in the ground floor space but do check measurements as suppliers will not refund if the room hired is not suitable for incorrect sized booked bouncy castles. We recommend bouncy castles are booked in the first floor Portland space only.
    Please ask us for further information and supplier details.

    Teenage Parties


    The Byron Suite can be hired for larger teenage birthday parties and we can provide full room décor, entertainment and catering (including mocktails!), for older children. There is a security bond of £150 for teenage birthday parties.
