We advise this number as it allows for great access to the activities we provide, making the party special for those children attending and for Health and Safety reasons. You are asked to ensure that there is a minimum of 1 adult attending for every 5 children for H&S reasons, we also ask that you try to encourage some parents to not attend as a maximum of 1 adult to 3 children is recommended to ensure all attending get full access to the activities. Deluxe Party – £185 – 3 hours Available at Guisborough Forest or Burn Wood As for the standard party Acorn Antics will supply drinks in the form of hot chocolate, water or juice. We will also provide: cheese and tomato pizza, hot dogs (tinned sausages to ensure cooking) bread buns and tomato ketchup, marshmallows and biscuits. Should you wish to supply and additional items that do not require cooking please feel free. Please also feel free to bring a cake into the woods although it is some distance from the car park so please ensure it is easily transportable and well wrapped up, candle lighting can be somewhat of a challenge! We can accommodate different dietary requirements, please let us know at time of booking, an additional charge may be required depending on the request. 3. Select the Venue Guisborough Forest and Walkway TS14 8HD A Public woodland owned by the Forestry Commission and Redcar and Cleveland council that we have permission to use. There is a visitor centre with toilets, railway carriage for hire, café for parents not attending the party or you can book a party tea package through us with them. Burn Wood Yarm TS16 0QQ Fantastic private woodland perfect for a back to nature experience. A real adventure awaits no permanent facilities so it’s a portable toilet (behind a tarpaulin) and tarpaulins for shelter. Not suitable for the under 5’s due to the walk from the car park and no tracks within the woodland. 4.
