Birthday Parties

A birthday party on a farm - what a great idea! Wear your wellies and have a day you'll never forget!

The Farm is a great place for a party.  As well as having plenty of indoor fun and games, you'll be able to meet our animals and experience life on the Farm!  Everyone wants something different so we definitely need to discuss what you're after. Please contact us on 01142 352678, kelvinc@whirlowhallfarm.org or johnf@whirlowhallfarm.org

We're looking forward to speaking to you, but in the meantime, we thought these FAQs would help: 

How much does a party cost? We offer venue hire for £120 for a three-hour party including access to our animals and playground. The venue is our education building and includes two separate rooms (so you can keep the jelly and ice cream separate from the Pass-the-Parcel!), loos, cloakroom and a small kitchen area for a well-deserved cuppa.

Please note that this venue is used by schoolchildren and members of staff throughout the week, it will be professionally cleaned prior to your party but teaching and farm items may remain in the room (these can be moved out as long as they are returned to their original place). 

What can the children do? 

Tractor rides - Each trip can take up to 8 people (eg 2 adults and 6 kids) so let Farmer John know how many you'll need! £30 per half hour trip, payable on the day.

Animal handling - once Covid restrictions are lifted, we can return to offering our animal handling experiences with our rabbits and guinea pigs

Scavenger Hunt - children work to find all manner of things around the farm.  It is a fun and active way to self-explore and learn about the farm. 

When can I have a party? Our parties run on Saturdays and Sundays. Due to Covid restrictions, we are only offering 1 party slot per day at present so that we can ensure the rooms are cleaned professionally in between. 

Who can enjoy a party on the Farm? Children aged 3 years and over really enjoy the place, but we can accommodate younger children if required.

Who is responsible for the children? We'll make sure you are safe and sound, but we need you to be responsible for the behaviour of the children. So you need 1 adult for every 5 kids unless they are really young (3 and 4-year-olds) in which case they must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. 

Who does the catering? We can take the strain and provide your party food - or you can self-cater if you prefer. Ask for more information and prices!

Where can parents park and can they stay during the party? We have a large car park. On activities, we ask that only the required number of adults accompany the party group. The remainder can grab something to eat or drink in our café, buy some of our fantastic products in the butchery and shop, or get a breath of fresh air in the lovely countryside. Or, if needs be, have 5 minutes in the party room with a damp flannel on your face!

Need present ideas? Take a look at our animal sponsorship page and sponsor one of our farm animals for the birthday child! There are lots of brilliant farm toys and educational books in our farm shop!
