Variety of packages
we offer a variety of events and parties for all ages.
Children LOVE playing outdoors, so what could be better than a Muddy party?
At Nettle Hill Mud Kitchen we have a beautiful Warwickshire 6-acre site.
We can theme your party for your child’s requirements. For example, magical fairy parties, swashbuckling pirate parties or fantastical superheroes parties.
You can choose whether the party is making things with tools, or making crowns from nature or jewellery. Your kids will get a bit mucky through the day as they cook over campfire’s and make mud pies in the mud kitchen.
A Forest School party for 10 children costs £200.00 (party food included). Additional children (maximum 15 children) are charged at £15.00 per head. (Bring your own birthday cake if needed)
