Birthday Parties

Give them a wild birthday!

Our nature-themed birthday parties are stuffed with fun activities and wild games!

Designed to give your children a fun-packed birthday and to keep your day stress free, our parties are held at Nower Wood, our beautiful private reserve near Leatherhead.



Each party lasts for two hours during which we keep children busy and happy with an hour and a half of themed games and activities, followed by a half hour birthday tea provided by you. We also provide wildlife-themed party invitations for the birthday child to give to their friends.


Our facilities include a large room with outdoor access and a sink with a drinking water tap. Tables and chairs will be set up for you, but please bring your own decorations - they can’t be attached to the walls, but table decorations are welcome. 

Party Size

All parties are suitable for a maximum of 17 children, except Base Camp which has a maximum of 12. Parties require a ratio of 1 accompanying adult to 6 children, and accompanying adults are thoroughly encouraged to take part in all of the activities.

Additional adults who need to stay on site during the party are welcome to stay in the party room until the children return for their birthday tea, but we advise limiting the number of adult attendees as this keeps the party as child-centred as possible.

Availability & Prices

Our birthday parties are available at Nower Wood on weekends & during school holidays from 10:00-12:00 or 13:00-15:00.

£15 per child with a non-returnable deposit of £50

The remaining balance can be paid in person on the day of the party. A minimum charge of £150 applies for parties with fewer than 10 children attending.

Party List

All our parties are suitable for fifth birthdays and above.

Woodland Minibeast Hunt

A minibeast safari to discover what is living in the wood through a series of minibeast themed games, sensory activities and searches. During the party you will hunt under logs, sweep through the grass and shake trees to discover the many creatures living in the habitats of Nower Wood. The woodlouse trail will show you just what it feels like to be a creature wandering around the wood at night.


Treasure Hunt

Find the Pirate’s hidden treasure by following clues and completing tasks around the wood. We will equip all the treasure hunters with pirate bandanas and treasure maps before setting off on a big adventure around the wood. To find the treasure you will work your way through mazes and along blindfold trails, using your map reading and problem solving skills along the way. No treasure hunt would be complete without a sword fight and walking the plank!

Woodland Fairies 

A host of different activities and games await you on our magical fairy trail around the wood with a “Good Weather” spell and plenty of fairy dust to help you on your way. You will make your very own fairy to take out into the woodland and together you’ll explore the fairies’ homes and discover how to look after them.

Woodland Survival 

There are two options for this party:

ACTION - Imagine you’ve crash landed in the woods: you must navigate using nature’s clues, find resources to survive, experience the woods at night (with our blindfold trail) and see who can build a shelter to survive the elements.

BASE CAMP (maximum 12 children) - Alternatively, for those wishing to concentrate on building a magnificent shelter and learn how to construct a camp fire safely, this is the party for you! You will collect natural materials to make your shelter and fallen wood to fuel your fire. Once the fire is roaring, you'll have the chance to toast a marshmallow in the flames!
