Parties coming up at Barney’s Playbarn as owners consider the future

Christmas events are coming up at Barney’s Playbarn in Uckfield and at the same time the owners are considering a new look for the premises.

There will be a disco, snow, games, soft play, entertainment, and a fancy dress competition.

Tickets are 8.50 each and include admission for one child and one adult and a set meal for the child. Additional adult tickets are £2.

To book please call Barney’s on 01825 764575 or email

A toddler bop is coming up too on Friday, December 15. This Christmas disco and play session will run from 11am to 1pm.

There’s no need to book for the bop. Entry is £5 per child and £1 per adult with under 1s free.

Barney’s owners Louise and Asa Jago are seeking help from customers as they consider the future of the play barn.

Their lease comes up for renewal in April five years after they opened and they are asking customers to join focus groups as they make a decision about renewal.

Louise said: “With business being how it is at the moment and with the continuing rising costs we are encountering, we have a very hard decision to make on whether we carry on with Barney’s or not.

“If we do, we would like to have a re-vamp and freshen up of our play equipment.”

Customers joining the focus group would be asked for their views on what Barney’s does and doesn’t do well.

The plan is to hold three focus group sessions in the New Year, each with eight to ten customers. If you would like to get involved please email your contact details to by the end of December.
