Hootah invites you to celebrate your birthday in his special world of stories.

Birthday Parties at Discover

With three floors of stories and play, there is so much for party groups to explore

Birthday Parties are available on Sundays. We offer five birthday party slots throughout the day:

10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm (Story World parties)
11:30am and 1:30pm (Exhibition themed parties)

Occasionally parties may be available on a Saturday. Please contact Bookings for availability.

We will set you up in your own private party room where you can enjoy your celebration. We will provide invitations and balloons, and be on hand if you need any assistance.

What happens at your party (recommended):
• Food & cake, and maybe open a present or two, in the Party Room for one hour.
• Book in tickets for A World Inside a Book: Gruffalos, Dragons and Other Creatures (from 21 October) at an extra cost – subject to availability
• Roam and explore the Ground Floor Story World & Garden for 45 minutes
• Visit the First Floor Story World for 30 minutes

Use of your party room is limited to your chosen one-hour slot, but you are welcome to stay and play at Discover for as long as you like.
