Have you ever thought about having a party in the woods?

Our parties run all year round, in all weathers and run from our beautiful woodland.

Our birthday parties are for everyone. (toddlers, boys, girls, teenagers or mixed groups).

Children are given a short talk beforehand about respecting nature and health and safety.

Parents are encouraged to bring along anything they may like to cook on the open fire. (Under your supervision)

Both children and grown-ups should wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions and environment.  Layered clothing is best for warmth and flexibility.  Footwear should be sturdy such as trainers or hiking boots.  Wellies are ok but are harder to run in, and feet can get cold.  Long trousers are essential for protecting legs.  Thermal socks, gloves and hats are also good ideas and waterproofs for rain and mud.  In warmer weather consider sun cream and sun hats.  Spare clothes are a good idea as well as a bag to put dirty clothes in for the homeward journey.
