Private Parties

From the 19 July we resume hiring out for parties, birthdays, baby showers and other celebrations. If you are interested and would like to plan ahead to ensure a booking from this date onwards, please get in touch with us via the booking form on the main hire page.

“We recently booked the general activities room for our daughter’s 7th birthday. Everything was excellent. Communication really quick, friendly and professional staff and the deposit returned quickly. It’s a lovely room that opens out onto the park. Friendly atmosphere. Thank you”

Looking for somewhere for a special occasion?

Depending on the size of the party or gathering, both the Community Room and the General Activities Room are ideal for birthday parties or other celebrations for children and adults. After 5pm the Café is available for hire too (excluding the kitchen).

The rooms are bright and airy with neutral decor and have access to outside space and the park. You can decorate the room to your taste, bring your own food and drink and/or open a tab with the cafe if you would like. Both rooms also have a kitchenette for your use and alcohol is allowed but can’t be sold. Whilst we don’t organise any parties ourselves we are very happy to put you in touch with party organisers, performers, caterers and bouncy castle hire.

We keep most Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings for private party bookings and we are open most bank holidays. Bookings are subject to availability and we advise you to book early, particularly in the Spring and Summer months.

Sessions must be booked for a minimum of two hours. Additionally you get 1/2 hr free to set up beforehand, but you have to finish cleaning up within the time booked.

For prices for hire and additional extras please see our private hire price list below. For availability please fill out the booking enquiry form from the main hire page.
