(We do not have the expertise to cater for children who suffer from severe food allergies, however own food can be brought in these circumstances.)

Is there enough parking for guests?
We have a free of charge car park to the left hand side of the building which provides space for guests to park.
How much is the deposit?
The deposit is £50 and we require it within two weeks after your booking date in order to secure the booking for you. Once we have received this we will give you birthday invitations, the party menu and a hard copy of our Terms and Conditions for you to read at you leisure.
Can I pay the deposit over the phone/online?
Unfortunately we cannot take payments over the phone or online at the moment. You can either come into the centre or post us a cheque made payable to Satrosphere Enterprises to make your payment. For further information please call the Commercial Team at Satrosphere Science Centre on 01224 640340.
Is there a minimum number of children needed?
Yes, the minimum number is 10 children. If you have less children attend you will still be charged for 10. The final number of guests will be required one week before the party.
How many adults can be admitted free of charge?
For children aged 5 and under, one adult can be admitted free of charge for every party child. For children aged 6 and over, up to 4 adults can be admitted free per party. Any additional adults will be charged the £5.75 adult entry fee. Adults accompanying the party should supervise the party at all times.
When does the menu need to be submitted?
We request the birthday party menu be submitted three weeks prior to the party. This menu is for the party as a whole and not per individual child.
Do I need to bring anything other than just a cake?
Most parents prefer to bring their own candles as the ones we have here are from previous parties. We will bring it to the table to sing Happy Birthday then cut it up and either wrap it and put it in the party bags or serve it to the children.
What is in the party bags?
We try as much as possible to make the party bags gender neutral. We try our best to vary the items but each party bag will usually contain the following:
- A puzzle based item
- A book based item
- A stationary based item
- A miscellaneous item
Some parents like to provide extras for the party bags – this is no problem at all! Just hand any items in at reception at the beginning of the party and we will pop them into the bags so that they are ready for the end of the party.
- Various times are available on both Saturday and Sunday, please call the Commercial Team on 01224 640340 to discuss this
