Birthday Parties at Techniquest

Make their birthday party one they’ll never forget!

“All of the children had a wonderful time, and it was a party to remember!”

Allow us to take some of the stress out of hosting a party yourself this year — you won’t need to prepare a thing if you don’t want to, nor clean up afterwards.

Aimed primarily at children from 3–12 years of age, as part of the Techniquest birthday package you’ll have:

  • Time for the children to spend on both exhibition floors, with over 100 hands-on exhibits to play on
  • Preferential entry to the live science show, so everyone can be right up close to the action
  • Picnic-style party food in a private space for your group
  • Special invitations to send out to your guests
Techniquest birthday parties are 3 hours long and we can host up to 24 children (age 3–15).

Child (3–15)£18
Child (0–2)Free
Accompanying adults1 free with every 6 children aged 3–15
After this, additional adults are £8.50
Sounds good? Then get in touch below to find out more about how you can celebrate a birthday at our amazing science centre!
