A Forest party is something really different and great for children of any age from 3 upwards. We turn a forest woodland into a birthday wonderland and tailor the activities to suit children’s abilities, interest, and age groups.

The parties run for 2 hours unless otherwise requested and could include a variety of activities.  If your child has a particular interest or has something they would particularly like to do please let me know when booking.

The children have the opportunity to cook on the fire – sausages are usually popular with and also marshmallows to follow, with biscuits and hot chocolate or squash depending on the weather.

Parties run for two hours (unless otherwise requested), starting 10.00 am until 12.00 pm, or 1.00 pm until 3.00 pm.

Groups are limited to approx. 15 children.

There is a minimum charge of £150 for 10 children. Extra children are charged at £10 per head. There is a £50 deposit which is payable upon booking to secure the date.
