Can children have a birthday party on the farm?
Yes, we do facilitate Birthday Parties on the farm! We can accommodate up to 30 children per party. We just need to check dates and ensure a birthday co-ordinator is available to run it on the day.
What will happen on the day?
We provide a Party Coordinator who will ensure that the event runs smoothly and everyone has the best time. You will have exclusive use of our Gallery room or Ecopod, and can explore the farm. Please be aware that Stepney is a working Farm; other activities and workshops may be taking place on the same day.
Are there additional activities that can take place?
Yes – we run a mix ‘n’ match service when you hire a space at the farm and can take trips around the farm, but you can also add different farm activities such as animal handling, gardening or craft workshops. This may include planting something from seed, handling and feeding our small furry animals, creating a money box or bunny egg cups or making a tin lantern; but we can tailor it to their age group / needs. Please be aware that Sunday classes run from 10-12, 1-3 and 4-6pm (this last slot is winter only). Keeping noise levels to a minimum during the first 45 minutes of each class would be appreciated.
How much does it cost?
Our standard fee for the Gallery, which can hold up to 15 children with adults, is £105 for a 2hr party. The room and party co-ordinator will be available 30 minutes before and after your 2 hour booking to help with setting up and tidying away.
The cost of the Eco-Pod, which can hold up to 30 children with adults, including the party co-ordinator for a 2 hour party is £175.00.
