Venue and Time of your Party

Parties are held at Fresh Sports Centre (Thamesmead school), Manygate Lane, Shepperton TW17 9EE.

Parties include exclusive use of the large sports halls for the duration of your party. Please note the Rainbow Partytime party is held in one hall for the duration of the party.

Parties generally consist of 1 hour of activity, followed by 30 minutes for food. During this 30-minute period we recommend as follows: first 15 minutes for eating, followed by birthday cake announcement; after this time staff may open the rope swing for those children that have finished eating. This allows the party hosts time to slice and wrap the cake if desired. Once the majority of children are playing, tables will be cleared and wiped down.

Roller Disco Parties have an additional 30 minutes for ‘kit-up’, safety talk and tips on how to get going.

Additional Time for Extra fun! – you can extend parties by an additional half an hour, subject to availability, for a fee of £45 (either Saturday or Sunday afternoon). This additional time is added to the activity time, allowing children 90 minutes of play. If you’d like to check the possibility of extending your party, please call our Fresh Kids Party Co-ordinator on 07547 540405 or email us.

Arrival times: set-up, clear away and vacating the rooms

Arrival– we ask that you do not enter the premises earlier than 15 minutes before the start of your party. This allows staff time to set up the room(s) ready for you. Rest assured that room(s) and all required equipment will be setup and ready for your arrival; and should you book food with us all the catering party lunches will be ready for the start of the party. Our staff are on hand to help bring food items from the car park area to the party rooms.

Guest Arrival – it is the party parent’s responsibility to inform guests to arrive no more than a few minutes before the party start time; and to ensure all children are collected by their parent/guardian at the end of the party time.

Clearing away – we can help take any presents or food back to the car park area, the rest – leave it to us! We will clean, tidy, remove rubbish and recycle.

Vacating the Rooms – we do ask that once the party finishes the room is vacated promptly. Fresh Kids endeavours to ensure that all Parties get the best experience – and this means starting the next party on time. For this reason, we will follow the ‘late room hire’ procedure set out as follows:

  • up to 15 minutes after the party is finished is included in your party
  • more than 15 minutes after the party is finished, a ‘late room hire’ fee of £25 will be charged, subject to availability.

Your help and cooperation, in ensuring the rooms are vacated no later than 15 minutes after your party has ended, is much appreciated.

Parties – Optional Extras to add to the fun 

Additional time – subject to availability, see above.

All Parties – Lenny the Lion Mascot – book an appearance from Lenny, our famous Lion mascot. He will join in games, pose for group photos and come back at the end of the party to pose for photos and give each child an inflated balloon on a stick (please note: a Lenny the Lion appearance is FREE of charge when you book Lunch Box catering).

Partytime Classic Party – upgrade your Classic Partytime Party and swap the 30-minute organised games section for:

  • a 30-minute disco (including fun glow sticks) for an additional £20

Your designated Party Leader will lead the entertainment and run party games. They can announce the birthday cake, start singing “Happy Birthday”, assist with serving of food and drinks, clean and tidy, apply any required first aid, help with bringing items into the party rooms and also assist when it is time to leave. Please note that staff are present to entertain the children. Supervision of children remains the sole responsibility of parents at all times.
