Hire The Bridge
The Bridge is the perfect venue to hold a party and is especially popular for children’s birthday parties.
Set in the tranquil gardens of East Greenwich Pleasaunce, this birthday venue has a spacious indoor room with space for up to 25 children plus adults (max capacity is 40 in total) and a large outside secure garden and playground that is enclosed by fencing.
The Bridge is very well equipped for children’s birthday parties. Included in your party hire rate is the use of our large collection of toys and equipment inside and out. We can clear the room or put out dressing up clothes, slide, the kitchen at no extra cost – it’s your party and you can customise it as you wish. If you want to hire an entertainer that’s fine too.
Standard 3 hour parties are £100 (includes 30 minutes set up time and 30 minutes clear away time) and we offer a lunchtime or teatime slot each Saturday and Sunday. For an extra £50, you can turn the centre into a soft play adventure playground – suitable for under 4s. New: Giant Jenga and Connect4. £30 hire for this games package, for both inside and outside use.
You are welcome to bring your own food but as a suggestion, Lizzie from Pistachios in East Greenwich Pleasaunce caters for approximately £6 per head. Email her here.

How to book your party
View our calendar to see which slots are still available (if possible please think about a second or third preference in case someone has very recently requested your first choice). If “busy” is written in the calendar it means that party slot is not free and someone else has booked it. Then please complete and submit the booking-form back to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch to confirm your booking. Please note the parties inbox is checked by the party coordinator (Lucie) a couple of times a week – party requests are dealt with in the order they come into the inbox.
Lucie will confirm the date is still available and send back part 2 of the form which will become your contract. It will set out the cost of your party in full and there is a space for you to type in your name which becomes your signature. Once you return your signed contract and pay your £25 deposit your party is confirmed. By signing the party contract you also agree to our terms and conditions which you can also read here Booking form part 2 – Condition of hire 2015. The balance of your party is required electronically at least seven days before your party. The Bridge will then get in touch a few days before your party to confirm who will meet you at the start of your party to show you around.
