Top 4 Venues for a child’s birthday party

Hackenthorpe community centre

Size of venue: When we visited, the community centre was holding a charity event where over 200 adults and children sat comfortably. Therefore, it is a great sized venue for any amount of guests.

Appearance: The thing that stood out to us about this venue is its stage, making it perfect for having entertainers, karaoke, charity balls and talent shoes. 

Kitchen facilities: The kitchen here is reasonably sized. Moreover, it has a helpful hatch, which makes passing food back and forth easier.

For adults: Unfortunately, no bar. However, with the kitchen being easily accessible, adults can have plenty of cups of tea/coffee. Also, a large number of chairs gives adults a place to sit and chat.

Player’s Lounge Ecclesfield 

Size of venue: The player’s lounge is a comfortable size, but any more guests after around 50 may become overcrowded and uncomfortable.

Appearance: Player’s lounge is the back room of the pub. It has cushioned seats around the edge, creating a fantastic amount of seating. Another great quality of this venue is they have a dance floor with fabulous disco lights.

Kitchen facilities: Unfortunately, this venue does not have any kitchen facilities, which means any food provided will have to be made on the day. Best to bring sandwiches, crisps, vegetable etc.

For adults: The big plus about this venue is the bar situated in the centre. This means your child’s party can also become an adult-friendly party. Nearby is a local shop which is a 3-minute walk and around a minute drive. 


Fullwood scout hut

Size of venue: As you could tell by the name, it is around the size of an average scout hut. The venue can comfortably fit around 40 people, as it is just a large hall.

Appearance: The appearance is plain, perfect for if you would like to decorate with your ow decoration. This venue’s best characteristic is its garden space outside, meaning the party can be brought out in warmer weather.

Kitchen facilities: The kitchen is small and when being cooked in gets VERY hot. Nevertheless, it has all the facilities and easily accessed next to the main room.

For adults: Unfortunately, there is not much adult entertainment facilities at the hut. However, within a 5-minute drive, you hit the country-side where you can go for a lovely stroll as you wait. In addition, there is an animal sanctuary where you can borrow a dog to take on a walk.


Totley rise Methodist church

Size of venue: The venue is a church and holds many playgroups. Therefore, it’s perfect for a large group of people with its long room.

Appearance: The church has a small stage, once again perfect for when having entertainers. In addition, the room is large enough to have a bouncy castle and still lots of space.

Kitchen facilities: The kitchen is uncomfortable, as it is down the corridor. This means that going up and down is not ideal, however not the end of the world.

For adults: Once again, unfortunately, there are not much adult entertainment facilities at the hut. However, on the upper hand within a 5-minute drive, you hit the country-side where you can go for a lovely stroll as you wait.
