Hi all - just starting to think about organising my little boy's 4th birthday party, and am well and truly stuck for venue ideas - having self-catered the past three I am desperate for a break and a hassle free one this year!
Trouble is getting the balance between size of venue and cost - the place I would most like is small, and enforces a maximum of 20 kids and 25 adults, which means excluding a lot of siblings, and restricting to one parent each - which is no good because I wanted a more social event. The bigger places are a fortune, and tend not to do private hire and I'm not so keen on letting 4 year olds loose among school age kids anyway!
My boy's not keen on animals or craft either - needs to be an active event. Any ideas or suggestions as I am getting desperate now!
The RSPB run birthday parties in Wat Tyler Park in Basildon. You can choose a theme of pirates, woodland explorers or rainforest and all the activities are outside and active, with food and cake in their discovey centre.
It's pretty resonable at about £6 a head. Think they limit kids at 30 and don't know of an adult limit!
