Specially designed parties for lots of birthday fun

Birthday Parties in the Park

Birthday Parties in the Park

Specially designed parties for up to 15 children at weekends or during school holidays. On Saturdays we have a range of themed indoor and outdoor activities exploring our beautiful parkland. On Saturdays and Sundays we offer dance-themed parties run by dance and drama teacher Tanya Greenwood. These can be tailored to suit your child’s interests and make it a birthday they will never forget. Our parties are suitable for children between 3-7 years old.

We provide a themed email invitation to send to your guests. See below for our selection of party themes. All activities are led by Gatton Park Education staff. We ask that at least four adults attend to help the children with their activities. Afterwards, you can use our classroom for your birthday tea.

For children aged four years or younger we recommend one hour of activities. For children aged five years plus we recommend one hour 45 minutes of activities. Birthday tea 45 minutes. The price of a party at Gatton Park for up to 15 children is £200.
