* Derby City Council have awarded us with their highest award for food hygiene standards the new High Five to 5 having achieved five stars for the last 5 inspections. 

Hickory Dickory’s Playhouse aims to be as pleasant and appealing to adults as it is exciting and fun for children. We believe we raise the standard of this type of family entertainment centre with, we hope, a positive impact on the community.

We have two playcentres, one in Kings heath – south central Birmingham and another in Kingsway Derby- southwest of the city centre.

It’s our mission to ‘Provide unparalleled indoor children’s adventure play and party centres that are spacious, high quality, stylish and as attractive to adults as they are exciting and fun to children‘.


Acres of space for your little ones to play. Come along to the biggest play and party centres in Birmingham and Derby and enjoy adventure play, trampolines, go karts, holiday activities, parties…the fun starts here.


We have put a lot of thought into the needs of our younger visitors and have provided them with their own large play structure that is strictly for the under 5’s. This has also been designed so that within this there is a ‘traffic free’ area for babies.

It is packed with challenging, entertaining, fun and learning experiences that will keep them occupied for ages.

Week day mornings in term time we also have special toddler morning sessions at a discounted entrance price, including squash for the children. We try and run a different activity daily and these are rotated so regular visitors should get to try new things. Activity starts at around 11am. The 5 core themes are Art/Storytime, Cooking/baking, Plants/flowers, Creative Craft, Movement/Dance.
