Birthday Parties: Terms and Conditions

Ready Steady Let’s Get Messy’s Terms and Conditions aim to present a fair sustainable structure to all. We aim to provide the highest quality classes for all our customers. We are committed to the safety of all persons who attend our lessons and to deliver the highest standard of service.

Birthday Parties

Ready Steady Let’s Get Messy does not provide the Venue Hire or food. Usually the messy party lasts for anything up to two hours, including time to get everyone cleaned up and changed back into their party gear. After they have worn themselves out getting well and truly messy, the children move to a separate space to have their party lunch/tea whilst we do all the tidying up.

We ask for four hours at the venue – An hour to set up, up to two hours of messy fun and an hour to clear up. In our price, we provide party bags (which will be discussed on booking – I can provide personalised stickers too).

Each Birthday child will get a Birthday Present, helium balloon and a Canvas decorated by their friends.

Allergies/Dietary Requirements

On booking your party, I will provide invitations which will ask for children’s allergies/dietary requirements. Ensuring I get this information will provide a stress free party and will provide safe activities for all the children to get involved in.

Birthday parties start at £150, with the minimum amount of 15 children, this includes every child who will be taking part, from ages 6 months onwards. I can cater for smaller parties but the price won’t change. If it is a joint Birthday Party, I will provide individual presents to make up the price.



Only with a very good sized hall I would cater for 20 plus children, which ensures safety of the children and provides enough room for other activities in the party such as an eating area and so on. A hall size is a necessity for children’s enjoyment and safety is paramount. On booking, I will ensure that the hall is suitable by asking for the hall sizing.

Parties with twenty plus children start from £200.
