Our centres have high levels of ventilation and air change, adults are required to wear masks when not seated unless medically exempt, please keep your distance from others as much as is possible and sanitise your hands on entry and regularly while visiting. We hope and expect our centres to become gradually busier and we shall be hosting children’s parties (hurray) but it is our intention to initially remain operating in the same way as we have since May 17th with the addition of parties whilst everyone adjusts.
Please ask a member of staff if you have any queries. we will of course keep this all under regular review.
Please book your play session on line as it is pre bookings only whilst we have capacity restrictions in place.
Parties can be booked for after July 19th and are now open for online bookings for after this date.

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‘.
TODDLER ACTIVITIES/PRE SCHOOL CHILDREN
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.
