Children’s parties

Theatre show 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.

We can hold birthday parties on Saturdays and Sundays during school term time. 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.

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 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 £9 per box (minimum order of 10 lunch boxes).

Theatre show parties - FAQs

Our lunch boxes contain either a sandwich (ham, jam or cheese) or a cheese & tomato pizza slice with crisps, yogurt, cheese stick, juice, fruit (banana or apple), raisins or sweets.

A space in a public area will be reserved with a table cloth for your party. This will either be in our Café on level 2 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.

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