Is the off peak after school party the only option at this time?

We’re sorry but we have to keep an eye on potentially changing government guidance and forward plan. For this reason, at this time, we are accepting online bookings only for the after school play parties.

Do I need to wear a face covering in indoor areas?

We recommend that customers wear a face covering in busy and enclosed spaces in line with government recommendations. This applies to our on site shops, restaurants, indoor play and reptile house.

Are there minimum numbers?

Our after school play parties are bookable from groups as small as six, and as large as 40. We have tried to be as flexible as possible.

Costs and Deposits?

Our after school play party is £11.95 per child and includes one child entry and one accompanying adult free of charge, one child’s meal and use of a space for your party via reserved seating.

Additional adult guests can be added at a cost of £3.95 each.

Can we enter before 3.15pm and how long can we stay?

Unfortunately for the after school play package is only bookable for parties to take place after 3.15pm and admissions will not be allowed before this time. You can stay until the farm closes at 6pm.

What decorations can we bring?

You can bring table decorations but balloons are not permitted. You can also bring your own cake if you require but no candles please. We will supply a knife for you to cut the cake and share it out.

Cannon Hall Farm prepares and handles a large range of foods and drinks on site. As a result, it’s not possible to guarantee food and drinks from any of our outlets are free from allergens due to the significant cross-contamination risks from products, people and the environment. Therefore we cannot provide an allergen free meal

Are all your facilities open?

Yes our soft play centre and tunnel maze reopened this Summer – including our talks and races programme and animal feeding down the tubes.

For the time being, we have no plans to reintroduce our tractor ride and instead the enhanced animal walkways, which leads down to the Shire Horse and Reindeer paddocks, will remain open.

Is there a time limit?

No you are welcome to stay at our farm as long as you wish until closing time. Visitors are not monitored for time and you can come and go as you please.

What are the rules of play?

Our staff are here to help you ensure the safety of your children. Please help them by making sure your children are suitably dressed to ride the slides in the indoor play areas.

To avoid friction burns, long trousers and long sleeves must be worn with tops tucked into trousers and socks covering the feet. 

If wearing a skirt or dress please wear tights (not nylon) or leggings and a top that fully covers the person’s arms.

Children with bare arms or legs will NOT be allowed to ride any of the slides.

Shiny clothes such as football kits, shell suits, rain coats, nylon tights and clothing made from polyester etc. are not allowed as the materials can heat up when using a slide.

Children over the age of 12 are not allowed on the play frames.

What happens next?

Once you have booked your date and paid your £50 deposit, you will be sent a follow up email to ask you to finalise numbers and menu choices. This usually happens a couple of weeks before your party is due to be held.

Do I have to pay for car parking?

Yes, everyone attending will need to pay for parking, standard charges apply.

Who do I contact with a problem?

Please call 01226 790427 or email bookings@cannonhallfarm.co.uk if you need to amend your booking because a member of your party has symptoms or needs to isolate.
