My little one has an allergy and is coming to a party/play session what do I need to do?


We understand having a little one with an allergy can be very scary at times. We are well known for our extensive allergy menu which can be viewed on our "menu" tab. If you wish to discuss your allergy in advance, please give us a call or send us a message on facebook and a member of the management team will give you a call and we will ensure we have something your little one can eat. You are welcome to see all packaging to make sure you feel comfortable with your little one eating.
If your little one is coming to a party give us a call and we will make sure your little one has a similar meal to the other children so they don`t feel left out. An allergy form will need to be signed before we can feed your little one so you can make sure you are 100% comfortable before we feed them.




Can I upgrade or alter my party now I have booked?


Of course! Party deposits are non-refundable but you can alter your party up until 2 weeks before your party date. Party numbers can be altered at any point as long as you meet the minimum numbers. If you want to upgrade to a Character Party this will be dependent on staff availability, so let us now as soon as you can.




I have a free play pass that has expired can I use it?


If your expiry date has expired during lockdown then yes of course you can still use it. Please book a play session as normal and just let us know that you have a free play pass to use. You will be required to bring this to reception when you come to play. Play passes cover the price of 1 child and 1 adult. Additional children and adults can come with you as long as they meet the current government guidelines of 2 households or 6 people, please just let us know and we can give you payment info.




When does my party payment need to be paid?


Once you have paid your £25 deposit the rest of the money is due 2 weeks before your party date. The amount you pay will be based on the minimum number of children for your chosen party package. Any additional children will be paid for on the day as well as any add ons.
