Party Information

We pride ourselves on providing a reliable, friendly and efficient end-to-end party planning service from invitations to entertainment and party bags.

A typical Oglee Poglee party for the under 5’s includes at least 2 arty activities, a large cardboard sculpture to paint, some messy play and 1 exciting creative challenge. With lots to see and do, these parties are perfect for capturing young minds. We don’t ask children to sit still instead we prefer to let them explore the activities under our guidance.

Take a peek at our party themes below but bear in mind that all our parties are different as we tweek the activities to suit your child and their friends.

An Oglee Poglee party costs £200 for up to 10 children. Additional children are £8 each.

  • Pirates and Mermaids Imagine painting a huge pirate ship, making your own pirate hat, searching for hidden treasure, splatting Captain Hook and lots more…
  • Fairy Garden: Imagine being in charge of all the garden creatures! Wearing your grass crown you will need to colour in the snail’s shells, make a magic wand and don’t forgot to paint the Fairy village.
  • Superheroes: Watch out the baddies are in town! Paint the skyscraper, free Superman and friends from the ice trap, learn how to protect your identity and much more. If you have a favourite superhero then do let us know.
  • Jungle Adventure: Become a zoo keeper and then help all the animals. Zebra needs some stripes and monkey has lost all his bananas, can you help?
  • Unicorn and Rainbows: This colourful party never disappoints. Create a rainbow and discover your Unicorn name, but watch out for the unicorn poo!
  • Space Adventure: Run wild with shooting stars, design a space ship and find those moon rocks before the glitter dries up. We can add in some Star Wars fun too, just ask.
  • Dinosaur Fun:  Become an explorer, complete the challenges and collect the badges.  You will be digging for fossils, searching for dinosaur eggs and chasing Pterodactyls.

Crafting fun with a touch of adventure. We have designed these parties so that older children can focus on more challenging craft activities whilst still being free to enjoy some make believe with their friends.

An Oglee Poglee party costs £220 for up to 10 children. Additional children are £10 each.

  • Fairy School: Headmistress Mrs Blossom is awarding pink stars to fairies that show true sparkle; can you master the fairy skills needed to win the stars? Wand making, potion mixing, little fairy houses to make and more
  • Magic School: If you love Harry Potter or the Worst Witch then this is the party for you. It’s not easy being a witch or wizard, you need to find all the ingredients, mix up a stinky potion and create your own pet.
  • Pop Stars: Could you be the next cool band? The outfits and accessories need designing, then it’s time to practise your pose in the photo booth.  T-shirts making, jewellery and large scale props all included.
  • Little Inventors: If you like a challenge then this is the party for you. No need to sit still, this craft party involves lots of action with racing robots, experiments, catapults, structures and crazy challenges.
  • Spy Party:  Find the clues, locate the key and unlock the evidence box.  Then crack the secret mission message and compete the tasks.  Should you complete these challenges great hunks of Birthday cake could be yours!
  • Cute Animals:  Design and make your own cute pet, then give it a name and make sure it has a home worthy of it’s cuteness.   A great party for kids those that love foam clay, decopauge and more detailed crafts.

Bespoke Themes

Although we offer a range of party themes sometimes your child has a particular idea in mind. These ideas can be easily incorporated into our standard themes. For example we can tweek the under the sea theme to include popular kids films like Moana or Space Adventure can include Star Wars.

For more unique themes or if you child has some extra needs please contact us and we can discuss the options, there is a small fee to cover the extra design and preparation time but we love a challenge.

Previous bespoke themes have included a polar bear party, a garden birds party, Barbie and Thunder Birds
