Any questions?  Take a look below

What parties do you offer?

We currently host Crazy Character, Neon Disco, Traditional Games and Theatre VIP Parties. More details of these can be found in our Parties flyer or on our website.


What’s special about your parties?

We are the only theatre in Surrey Heath to offer parties and one of the only theatres in Surrey to do so too! We specialise in “having a good time” and this ethos is extended to our fantastic kids parties.

All parties include 2 dedicated party hosts; food, free tea and coffee for parents who wish to wait and free invites. We want to make a party as hassle free for you as possible!


What do the party hosts do?

The party hosts are there to make your party brilliant and stress free! They’ll set up the party areas for you and tidy up after. They’ll also meet and greet each guest and give them a name sticker, keep them entertained throughout the activity and make sure the children are watered and fed!

Please speak with your host on the day to make arrangements with birthday cake and photo opportunities.


How many children can I bring?

There is a minimum of 15 children for all of our parties. For all our parties at Camberley Theatre, the maximum is 30 children. This maximum limit allows us to give you the best party experience possible, and is also restricted due to health and safety reasons. Please help us to deliver a memorable party by respecting our number restrictions. Please give us an estimate of numbers when you book so we can make sure you are booked into a room or area with enough space.


Where do parties take place?

This depends on the type of party you have and the number of guests. Our Crazy Character and Traditional Games Parties normally take place in the Function Room, the Neon Disco Parties take place in our Studio and Theatre VIP Parties are held wherever the performance is taking place. Food will either be served in our Function Room or Conference Room, depending on numbers.


What is the format of your parties?

We start with the activity and finish with food. The activity lasts one hour and the food takes half an hour. It is not possible to change this structure due to other bookings and staff time constraints.


Is the party room decorated?

The party rooms for our Crazy Character and Neon Disco parties are fully decorated in their specific themes and do not require any extra decoration. For all other parties, we dress the room with birthday banners, but you are welcome to bring additional or specific decoration/theming.


Do you do food?

Yes, all our parties come with food as standard. We offer a party buffet which is served cold. Please inform us of any allergies at least a week in advance. 


Can I bring my own food?

Food for the children is included in the party price and therefore cannot be altered. You may bring nibbles for the parents if you wish (these should be ready to serve), or pre-order food from our catering menu (please ask for details).


What do I need to bring?

The only items you need to bring are Party Bags and Birthday Cake.


How do I pay?

Deposits and balances are all paid via our Box Office. You can do this in person or over the phone. A party cannot be confirmed until a £50 deposit is paid. You’ll then receive a confirmation letter containing all the details plus the date your balance is due, and we’ll also send you free invites.

We cannot refund those children who do not come but can usually add additional children until 24 hours in advance of the party, which can be paid at the Box Office.


Do parents have to stay?

No; we ask that the birthday child’s parents stay to help with toilet breaks and looking after the children. The other parents are welcome to leave their child and collect at the end or wait in the theatre bar with a free tea or coffee.

We do ask that parents do not wait in the party room as this is distracting for the children and disruptive for the staff.


Are there any optional extras that can be provided?

We can provide various optional extras for your party (subject to availability), including:

  • Professional Face Painting
  • A Character Visit
  • Latex Balloons
  • Professional Photographer
  • Use of the theatre bar for parents 
Please enquire about optional extras when you book.
