Tots Pots Party

A Party Especially for Pre-schoolers

Food Option

Food can be added to any of our Parties (except Tots Pots Parties)

£4.95 per guest - adds 30mins extra to party time

  • Our snack bag includes a sandwich (please specify choice of ham, jam or cheese at time of booking) fruit juice, crisps, fruit bag, raisins, yoghurt pouch and chocolate biscuit.

  • Although we don't include a birthday cake, you are welcome to bring your own to either eat after the party food or wrap up to include in party bags.

  • Sorry, we no longer offer the option of bringing your own food.   

Things to note:

  • ARRIVAL – Just 10 minutes before the party start time is more than enough time for you to arrive as we will already have everything set up and ready for your party.

  • ADULTS – You and another adult will need to stay throughout the party.

  • EXTRA ADULTS - In order for us to give your child the best possible party in a safe environment, parents are encouraged to drop off their children at the studio.** There are a number of other galleries and studios at the Ferrers Centre, as well as a cafe and garden centre, where parents can take advantage of an hour away from their little ones. We are a small studio with limited space, and we won't be able to run your party if our staff doesn't have clear and safe access to the party table. Any parents who really do not want to leave their children are welcome to stay and paint on a separate table at our usual studio charges (space permitting.) Alternatively they can sit at the party table with their child on their lap. (This does not apply to our Tots Pots Parties where children under 5 will each need an adult to stay with them.) 

  • TOILETS are in the Ferrers Centre Courtyard about 25 metres from the studio and an adult will need to accompany the children when they use these facilities.

  • GENERAL PAINTING – We do stay open for general paint sessions on our spare tables during parties, unless your party is for the maximum 18 guests.

  • COLLECTION – Your kiln fired party pieces will usually be ready for collection the following week.

  • BAD WEATHER – If snow makes it unsafe to get to the studio and we cannot go ahead with your party, we will give you as much notice as possible, and we will re-arrange another date for you.

** please discuss any special circumstances with us at time of booking.
