Hosted Birthday Parties


Let's celebrate your Birthday at the Historical Village!

Birthday parties are always fun, and at the Village we’ve done our best to make your child’s birthday both magical and stress-free.  We will ensure that your child’s birthday party is a fun and memorable experience, held in a Living Museum different from any other venue!

We provide one or more character hosts, play games and organise a scavenger hunt, make a craft, assist with seating the children whilst they eat, sing happy birthday, cut the cake, organise present opening and give out loot bags.
