We hire out the Farm’s Classroom mainly for Children’s Birthday Parties, but we are quite happy to consider loaning it for almost any use!
Birthday Parties are held on Saturdays & Sundays only throughout the year. Any other type of hire should be discussed with a senior member of staff at the Farm, ideally our Visitor Services Team on 020 8545 2170.
We prefer you to know exactly what you are getting so you are welcome to come in to see the Classroom. You are paying to hire a bright, clean open, classroom space in a safe, farm environment with tables and seating for a maximum of 20 children and a few adult helpers. The room is fully equipped with all you need for your party and is decorated with birthday banners, bunting and balloons. All you will need to bring is a cake, candles and music player.
And it will save you spoiling your carpets at home!
