Our parties are action packed with magic and adventure from start to finish, taking the children on a journey that will fully immerse them into the world of their chosen character.The parties are bursting with a variety of activities, there will barely be a moment to breathe! Your little ones will be busy with activities such as; face painting, balloon modelling, disco dancing, games, parachutes, glitter tattoos, drama and a magic show.
All of our themed parties are available in one and two hour packages. For a small extra fee, we can even tailor parties to a theme of your choice. If you want to add some colour to your children's faces, you can also hire a face painter.
