Birthday parties

Hootah invites you to celebrate your birthday in his special world of stories.

With two exciting floors of play, there is so much for party groups to explore. You’ll be free to explore both floors of our fantastic Story Worlds and take a trip to our immersive exhibition*. There will be a pit stop in a room for a snack lunch and happy birthday, before going back out to play. Don’t miss the Story Garden!

Birthday Party Package includes:

  • Entry to Discover for 3 hours
  • Timed session in our immersive exhibition The Box Rocket (shared with one other birthday party)
  • A 45-minute pitstop for a packed birthday lunch and happy birthday

On the Day

During term-time (no dates available during school holidays), we hold birthday parties on Sundays and there are two time slots available to choose from:

  • 10:00 – 13:00
  • 14:00 – 17:00

The first 1 hour 15 minutes is spent playing in our Story Worlds and Garden, then it’s off to our immersive exhibition The Box Rocket (45 Mins). Then up to Hootah’s room to grab a snack box, light the birthday candles and sing happy birthday (45 mins). After this, there will still be 30 minutes of playtime in your favourite Story World before meeting the birthday child at Reception to give out party bags.


The food for children is served in a space themed party box including:

  • Kids cheese sandwiches
