Birthday Parties

Welcome to our Party Page and we know how to have fun and Party!

Kinetic offers three types of parties. 

  1.  We can bring the party to you at your home or in a village hall.  This type of party is the entertainment and does not include the party food.
  2. Kinetic can offer you a party in a school or group and so we become the entertainer for your event.
  3. Alternatively we can provide a party with or without food at one of our opened science centres.  If this is your choice then please go directly to the science centre of your choosing.  See science centre tab for details on how to contact us.

Our parties start from £14 per head (including food) or £13 for a party and no food.  All parties include the following:

  • 15 minutes of arriving and a game to create the party mood
  • 1 hour 30 minutes play on exhibits in a centre or this amount of time on workshops.  Please note an option for both is not possible.
  • 30 minutes allowed for eating and the birthday cake procession
  • All parties last a minimum of 2 hours.  You can book longer at a slightly higher cost and some customers prefer a three hour event.
  • Will include a cold lunch or tea or a cooked meal. It will include savoury and sweet and the meal is two courses for both cold and hot.
  • A highly decorated table and the Birthday Child’s Chair at the head of the table.
  • A small Birthday Gift for the Birthday Child
  • Up to five adults can attend per party, unless parents are staying with their children as per an agreed arrangement.  We ask that you do provide a minimum of one adult per 10 children.  There is an option for all adults to stay and we can provide a buffet for these if required.  This must be agreed on booking as your guests could be occupying an area where we could have other customers.

We have other parties to offer which range from £14 per head to £20 per head. All of these parties allow an activity for an hour and then allows 30 minutes for party games.

  • Choose a “Solve It” Party and become detectives for the day and try mini experiments and puzzles to find the thief.  
  • Choose a Science Experiment Party and we let the group take part in mini experiments and watch science happen
  • Choose a “Star Gazing” Party and lie back in our planetarium and learn about the stars or Solar System.  (This party is a per head cost and in addition, an extra fee for the Planetarium and can accommodate maximum of 20 children)
  • A Traditional Party is suitable for any age (even teenagers) which include traditional party games and hilarious fun!
  • An Arts and Crafts Party allows all to have a go at making either a trinket box, coloured sand animal, door plaque or a Mosaic Picture to name but a few!
