What We Can Offer

All The Entertainment – All In One Place!

A party is not complete without some fantastic entertainment and we are in a great position to offer you the best.

We have bands and DJs on speed dial or, if you bring your own band, we have a stage, all the sound and lighting and an engineer for a reasonable rate.

Spent all your budget on a band but fancy a bit of late night dancing? You’re welcome to bring your own play list and plug it into our system. Our house disco lights are activated by the music so we’ll have a party!

Do something different, book some comedians for the night. We have access to the top comedians on the current UK circuit or we can arrange for a visit from Comedy Waiters or even a Comedy Murder Mystery!

Children’s Parties

Our children’s soft play area is great for parties up to 8 years old, for the older children why not have a pool party, nerf party, magician’s, photo booths, giant garden games or hire in the rodeo bull and have a real Cowboys and Indians party and we can even ensure there are plenty of beans!

With space for bouncy castles indoors and outside with areas for the adults to relax you will not have to worry about your child’s party being stress free, easy and great fun.
