Let your imagination run wild: hunt for fairies and elves, make a woodland crown and be a knight or a princess, make a magic wand, the possibilities are endless.

Each party is 2 hours long plus 1 hour unstaffed for party picnics if required.
Cost: £180 for up to 15 children with a charge of £12 per extra child.

Our parties are led by fully trained staff, all of whom hold an up to date DBS and first aid certificate. We need your help to make sure the children enjoy themselves so for children aged five and under you will need one adult per two children and for children over five one adult per five children.

You can purchase lunch boxes from our café at a cost of £4.95 each which include 5 lunch items or you are welcome to bring a picnic with you. We will provide a small gift for the birthday boy or girl.

Parties take place within Holkham Park woodland. You will have exclusive use of the education room to continue your party and have lunch or to use in wet weather conditions. Why not finish your day with a visit to our Woodland Adventure Play Area?

Lots of the activities will be messy, please wear old clothes and bring all-weather clothing such as waterproof trousers and coat, warm hat and gloves, warm layers, wellies or boots. In the summer months please wear long sleeves/trousers, hats and sunscreen. It’s really important that you pass this information on to the children you invite.
