New party room opens at Barney’s Playbarn, Uckfield

A new party room has opened at Barney’s Playbarn in Uckfield. It can accommodate up to 30 children.

Louise Jago, who runs the playbarn with her husband Asa, said it was proving to be popular. Party organisers liked to have their own space when it was time for refreshments.barneys-1

Now children can enjoy the soft play area, which includes tunnels and a three-storey climbing frame, before taking a break away from the hurly burly for food chosen from hot or cold menus. The two-hour party package costs £9 a head.

The playbarn, which was opened in a unit on the Bellbrook Business Park two years ago, is a haven for parents and grandparents with children aged from birth to 12 years.


Special events are held throughout the year such as at Hallowe’en when tickets will be available for two party sessions on Saturday, October 31.

The first session runs from 3-5pm and the second from 5.30-7.30pm.

Tickets, which are available from October 1, can be bought at the playbarn or over the phone. Call 01825 764575.

The price, £8 per child, includes one child admission, one adult admission, Barney’s Hallowe’en Show, Disco and Child’s Mummy Dog and Chips. Additional adults are charged at £2.

There are bouncy castle mornings every Tuesday and Wednesday and there is a monthly disco, on the last Friday of the month, with the next being on Friday, September 25, from 5-7pm. This isn’t a ticketed event and admission can be paid for at the door, £5 per child and £1 per adult.

There are two reduced admission mornings, Monday and Thursday, when admission is £2.95 per child and £1 per adult. Admission is before 1pm and the offer is term-time only.

Louise said: “Barney’s is a great place to come and relax over a coffee with friends while children play safely. And if you would like to eat here too all our food is prepared from scratch with the freshest of local ingredients.”

Drinks include speciality lattes, with a weekly latte, hot chocolate or coffee special at a discounted rate. Currently a Citrusy Orange Hot Chocolate is offered and during October there will be a Spiced Pumpkin latte.
