Children’s Parties

Children's parties

Price: £33 per hour - Saturdays, 2pm - 5pm, for children aged 13 and under.


You will have full use of the whole centre grounds, hall, kitchen and lounge. You have the freedom to bring your own food, decoration and entertainer...and you can invite your child's entire class if you wish! Typically, the three-hour booking involves 30 mins set-up, 2 hours of activities, and 30 mins clearing up.

Arrival at the centre

A member of staff will arrive at the centre to open up before your booking starts. They will help settle you in and stay at the centre to help with any questions or issues that may arrive.

Tea and coffee, etc. is available to everyone using the centre. This is located in the 'Staff and Volunteer Kitchen' in the 'Corridor of Dreams'; we just ask that you leave a donation in the piggy bank if using this facility.

Hall

Our hall is 52ft x 32ft - plenty of space for kids to run around in! It has the following equipment available:

  • Cinema screen
  • Bluetooth speaker
  • Hall divider
  • 15 full size tables (2' x 6') and 4 small tables (2' x 4')

The hall is regularly used to host bouncy castles, discos, magicians and other family-friendly activities.

Lounge

At 17ft x 13ft the lounge can be used as a break-out room or chill-out area.

Kitchen

Bring your own food or use our modern kitchen with double oven and six-hob cooker to cater for your party. The centre provides 'pay as you feel' refreshments to save you having to bring along tea and coffee. However, we recommend you bring your own milk and tea-towels, as we do not provide these.

Outside court and grounds

The outside court has flood lighting and has been used for cycle parties, as an exercise area and even for the occasional flash mob dance routine. The grounds also include a climbing frame, slide, storytelling throne and picnic benches.

Leaving the centre

You must be ready to leave the centre in time for the end of your booking time, as there may be another booking starting as yours ends. All hall tables and chairs need to be put away and the entire centre left as you found it. The cleaning cupboard is in the main corridor, should you need to mop or vacuum the hall or wipe down the tables.

Annex A; The small print

- The hirer must be over 18 years old, and a responsible adult must be present throughout the entire period of the booking.
- The hirer may not use the centre or its facilities for any purpose other than children’s parties as agreed by the centre. The hirer
may not sub-let the facility. Failure to follow these instructions will lead to the booking being cancelled, and fees will not be
refundable.
- The hirer is responsible for the supervision and behaviour of any persons they bring into the building, and its grounds, as part of
their group. Any breakage or damage arising during the booking period must be paid for by the hirer.
- The hirer is responsible for leaving the room(s) in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the booking, and for making sure the
premises are vacated on time. A charge may be made at a half hourly rate for any extra period of time beyond the end of the hire
period.
- The hirer must ensure all equipment they bring in to and use in the building is safety tested to current standards if over a year old.
- The hirer is responsible for any first aid cover that may be needed. A first aid kit is suspended on the wall besides the 'Corridor of Dreams'
and a burns kit is suspended on the wall in the kitchen.
- The hirer needs to always have on them a mobile phone, as the hirer is responsible for calling for any emergency assistance, i.e. fire,
ambulance or police, should this be necessary.
- The hirer is responsible for ensuring no fire exit is blocked during their use of the centre. Fire exits are clearly marked throughout
the building. Please read the emergency evacuation instructions so that, should the need arise, you know how to safely evacuate
your group (and where to assemble outside). The hirer is responsible for the evacuation of their group in the case of fire or the
alarm sounding. The hirer should keep a register of all persons who access the building during their hire period, so a roll-call can
be made in the event of an evacuation.
- The hirer is responsible for ensuring no fire door is propped open. Fire doors fitted with a 'dorguard' mechanism may be held
open using this foot-operated safety device, but by no other means. Fire doors not fitted with a 'dorguard' must not be held
open by any means.
- The hirer is responsible for the risk-assessing of activities carried out during their hire period. The community centre, its
management committee or its representatives cannot be held responsible for accidents, injuries, mishaps or breakages that occur
during a hire period as a result of inadequate risk-assessing of an activity by the hirer.
- Hirers have the responsibility of ensuring members of their hire party understand how to use the internal thumb-turn locks fitted
to the front and side metal entrance doors. Both of these doors are fire exits. Thumb-turn locks allow these doors to be locked
from the inside, while still maintaining fire exit compliance. All persons in the hirer’s party must know how to unlock these in case
of emergency evacuation. These locks are indicated with ‘Turn to Open’ signs.
- Hirers have the responsibility of ensuring the stacked tables on trolleys, when positioned out in the hall, are handled with care
and attention. Tables must be returned to the correct trolley, must be stacked upright and be secured in place. On both trolleys
the tables must be secured with the security straps. Neither trolley should be moved from its parked position. Children should
not handle tables and chairs, nor be unsupervised around the trolleys.
- Cancellations should be made no later than 48 hours prior to the booking. Failure to do so may result in you paying the full agreed
amount.
- The management committee will not be held liable for any losses or claims arising, should they either need to close the building
or withdraw facilities leading to cancellation of events.
- Neither the management committee nor its representatives may be held liable for any loss or damage to property of users of the
building, the car park, bicycle rack, play areas or the grounds - nor injury to users of the play areas.
- The management committee and its representatives reserve the right to refuse admission to the centre and its grounds.
- Hirers must not ignite any flammable items in the building other than birthday candles. This is to ensure the smoke and heat
detector alarms are not accidentally activated. If a hirer has use of the kitchen, the electric toaster must only be used under the

active extractor fan. If the fire brigade are summoned by a false activation, and if they charge, the hirer shall be responsible for
this charge. The extractor fan must be used at all times when cooking is taking place.
- Any accidents or significant incidents (including those concerning potential harm or potential damage to property) that occur
within the building or grounds must be reported to the centre manager or their representative at the time the incident occurs (or
as soon as possible afterwards). If, for any reason, a representative is not present, the hirer should telephone the 'out of hours
contact' number on the wall by reception.
- No cameras or other recording equipment may be used in the centre for commercial purposes, without written permission from
the committee.
- Tang Hall Community Centre is not responsible for any loss or damage to personal belongings in the building or in the grounds,
bicycles in the grounds or secured to the bike rack, or vehicles in the car park.
- In accordance with our premise licence, alcohol must not be sold in the centre. Alcohol should only be brought on to the
premises with the consent of the centre manager.
- Complaints are to be made in writing to the centre manager.
- Hirers are expected to keep to the times of their booking. Setting up at the beginning of the booking, and tidy up time to vacate
the building at the end, must be included within the booking time. Hirers are expected to keep to this arrangement.
- Hirers of Tang Hall Community Centre, by making a booking, agree by default to the terms of Tang Hall Community Centre.

Fire Evacuation Procedure

~ If the alarm does not sound automatically, please raise the alarm by using one of the 'break glass' points.

~ Social distancing does not apply during an evacuation.
