Children's Parties

A birthday party at the theatre is a great way to celebrate with friends and family. We have an exciting programme of family shows nearly every weekend and hosting a birthday party at artsdepot is simple.

Show tickets and birthday lunchboxes

We can hold birthday parties on Saturdays and Sundays during school term time. To arrange your party:

  • Choose a show from our family programme and contact the Box Office on 020 8369 5454 to reserve your tickets.
  • Contact the Café Manager on 020 8369 5479 or cafe.supervisor@artsdepot.co.uk to arrange your party, and order birthday lunchboxes. Please check that your party can be accommodated before purchasing your theatre tickets.
  • The Café Manager will send you a birthday party booking form, returning this to us will confirm your party booking.

Lunchboxes are charged at £7.00 each plus a setup fee £1 per head (minimum 10 kids).

A space in a public area will be reserved with a table cloth for your party. This will either be in cafedepot or on Level 3; the exact location cannot be confirmed in advance of the day.

You are welcome to bring your own birthday cake; we'll happily store it for you and provide paper plates and a knife.

Please note: We are unable to offer any children’s parties during school half-terms or holidays (not including summer holidays). This will also include any weekends immediately before and after these school holidays.

We cannot provide personalised event support for birthday parties in public areas.

Room hire

If you would prefer to have a party in a private area, rooms are available from £275 + VAT, for three hours inclusive of set-up time and clear away time. Maximum capacity up to 60 people, dependant on room hired. Trestle table and chairs are included. Our cafe can provide party lunchboxes. For details please contact the Events Team on 0208 369 5471.
