Frequently Asked Questions

What parties do you offer?

We currently offer Cinema, Popstar, Party Games, Dance and Storytelling 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 theatre’s 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 a dedicated party host; 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 does the party host do?

The party host is there to make your party brilliant and stress free! They’ll set up the rooms for you and tidy up after. They’ll also meet and greet each guest and give them a name sticker and will assist the Party leader with 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 our parties but there is no maximum. Just make sure you give us an estimate of numbers when you book so we can make sure you are booked into a room with enough space!

What room does the party take place?

This depends on the type of party you have, the number of guests and what other bookings we have at the Theatre. Usually the activity will take place in the Function Room and the food in the Conference Room.

What is the format of your parties?

We start with the activity and finish with food. It is not possible to change this structure due to other bookings and staff time constraints.

Is the room decorated?

We do dress the room with 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, except our Cinema parties. The Cinema parties include popcorn and a soft drink on arrival but you can add a party buffet for an extra £5 per head.

The food is served buffet style so you don’t need to worry about pre-ordering or run the risk of a child changing their mind!

What is included in the party buffet?

Jam, Ham and Cheese Sandwiches (no crusts!), Chicken breast bites, Fish bites, Potato Smiles, Mini Sausages, Veg Sticks, Orange Squash and biscuits/cake for afters!

Can I bring my own food?

We do not allow self-catering at Camberley Theatre. If you have any allergies please let us know when you book.

What do I need to bring?

The only thing you need to bring is 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 with all the details plus the date your balance is due.

We cannot refund those children who do not come but can usually add additional children on the day, which can be paid at the Box Office.

Do parents have to stay?

No; we ask that the birthday child 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 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.
