Time to go Wild in the Woods!

If you go down in the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise! Gone are the days of pass the parcel and musical chairs, it’s time to go wild in the woods and what better place to do it than Holkham! Celebrate in style in the great outdoors, round up your best friends and get ready for an action-packed adventure on your special birthday!

With acres of rolling parkland, Holkham is the perfect place to bring your children and their friends for a party. Our fun-loving education team know how to party and aren’t afraid to get stuck in and get their hands mucky! From parkland, woodland to the lake, there is so much space to run, hop, jump, twizzle, twirl and explore. Come rain or shine, we’re ready for a woodland adventure… are you?

There are four different parties available for your little explorers, suitable for a range of ages. Each party is two hours long, plus free time for a teddy bears picnic and time in Holkham’s woodland adventure playground.

Aeryn and Charlie celebrated their 4th birthdays together on a wonderfully sunny day in the park. Here’s what Charlie’s mum had to say about it:

My wish list for my son’s 4th birthday party:
1. Space
2. Beautiful surroundings
3. Real woodland activities
4. Party person to feed their woodland imaginations
5. Trailer rides
6. Ice-cream

I got my (fairy) wish. Holkham had it all, thank you for providing such a wonderful 4th birthday party.

Kate, Charlie’s mum

Bush Craft Party
Suitable for 7-11 year olds, these parties are ideal for the budding Bear Grylls amongst us! Survive in the wild learning essential craft skills; master the art of knot tying and build the best den ever! Gather round and light your own campfire and get those marshmallows toasting! There will be fun and games galore!

Mini Beast Adventure
For aspiring Attenboroughs, become a bug cadet and uncover a multitude of mini beasts hidden in the woods! Suitable for 4-11 year olds, explore those secret places where mini beasts make their homes! Gather treasure in the woods and create your very own mini beast palace or a larger than life bug!

Mini Rafts and Pond Dipping
Ahoy Captain! Explore the woodland collecting natural materials to make your own mini raft. Fancy a dip? After testing our rafts on the lake we will have a go at pond dipping and discover what lurks in the water of Holkham lake. Ooh arr, me hearties!

Forest Fun
Become at one with nature with a woodland discovery party! Let your imagination run wild, hunt for fairies and elves, make a woodland crown and become a knight or a princess. Don’t forget to make a magic wand and hope all your birthday wishes come true! Suitable for 4-7 year olds.
