The parties are all based in the ancient woods of the former Swillington Hall Estate and are designed to bring out the adventure in children. The sessions are based around set themes: Rooster Roy the Cowboy, Pirates v Lost Boys, Little Folk of the Forest and Forest Galaxy (laser tag). All the parties include a treasure hunt and den building along with other activities.

The parties last for 2 hours and sandwiches, crisps, chocolate and a drink are included in the price. Prices start from £350 for up to and including 15 children. With a charge of £17.50 for each child thereafter. Also included are a campfire and marshmallows. Complimentary tea and coffee is available for grown ups.

All parties are based outdoors and will still go ahead in poor weather unless high winds or electrical storms are present. Every effort will be made to reach a decision 24hours in advance of the party. In the unlikely event we have to cancel, we will do our very best to help you re-arrange another suitable date.

To secure a booking, a £50 deposit must be paid, followed by the balance, along with confirmed numbers, 1 week before the party.

Rooster Roy the Cowboy

Rooster Roy has long been the bane of Swillington Estate. For Years, Rooster and his posse have rustled the lovely organic cattle and sold them for gold!

It’s time to tackle Rooster once and for all. A high energy treasure trail to find Roosters gold, infiltrate his camp and take his treasure chest.

Rooster will return and he will want his fortune back!  Let’s build a hideout, stay quiet and spring an ambush to bring him to justice.

Party includes map reading, potato guns, natural den building and teamwork. Party can be tailored for all ages but is best suited to 5 to 10 year olds.

“Awesome birthday party for our 6 year old son this weekend! Paul did a fantastic job of captivating some very giddy kids who had been trapped indoors for days by a horrible storm, which magically disappeared as soon as the party started – it really is that kind of place! Everyone loved every minute – thank you This Green Moon!”

“Fantastic birthday party for my 8 year old son! His friends say the best party they’ve ever been to. Will definitely be back to other events here. Thank you Paul and his team!”

Chester Copperpot v The Lost Boys

Long ago two galleons full of Pirate scallywags set sail in search of new horizons. In a freak twist of fate the ships ended up face to face on the River Aire (right here on the farm). Before the battle could even begin a huge flood shipwrecked the vessels.

It’s your job to find all the parts of the shipwrecked boats that a strewn around the ancient woodland, rebuild them and commence the historic battle that never was.

Party includes map reading, getting wet, natural construction, teamwork and scurvy. This party is best suited for 6 to 12 years (we also use this platform for corporate packages meaning older children can be catered for).

“Fantastic party today for my daughters 10th birthday. She thought it was brilliant and wants to have her next party there too! Paul is lovely and has a great way with the kids. Would definitely recommend. We will be back!”

“Just had my daughter Jasmine’s 7th Birthday party at This Green Moon. What a party NOT one unhappy child, parent or Grandparent. All young and old absolutely loved it. I can not thank you enough for making my daughter’s birthday so perfect. This Green Moon is 110% our favourite place. Thank you again xx”

Maria Antonia

“I just wanted to drop an email to say a huge thank you for Edward’s party today! Matt and Charlie were absolutely amazing with the children (they certainly had their hands full with a very lively bunch of children) – please pass our thanks on to them. The party was well organised and so much fun! The activities were perfect for the age of the children. I’ve had so many messages from parents saying how much they enjoyed it too. We already loved This Green Moon and we love it even more now.”

Thanks again.
Emma, Michael and Edward.

Little Folk of the Forest

For hundreds of years the Swilligogs have lived in harmony within the ancient forest but something has happened and they have left in a hurry. Let’s join together to solve the mystery and help restore peace to the woodland once more.

Party includes investigation trail, crafts x 2, den building and imagination play. This party is best suited for children aged 4 to 8 years.

“Amazing party for our 4 year old son at the weekend! The kids loved it, and the setting was beautiful, especially in the autumn sunshine! Paul is excellent with the children and really engages with them. We can’t wait for A Forest Full of Secrets at Christmas! Thank you This Green Moon!”

Nicola Wood

“Wow, what an amazing time for my sons 5th birthday. Everyone really enjoyed it and Paul is brilliant at engaging with the children. Thank you so much, it’s worth every penny and we will definitely be back. It’s a special place to create lasting memories x”

Forest Galaxy Wars

Recent sightings over West Yorkshire have led to a belief that the ancient woods is the landing site of an alien spacecraft. The purpose of the alien visit is to destroy all the remaining forests and terraform our planet for their own needs.

Join the resistance in the fight to save the forest, infiltrate the alien hideout and learn how to turn their superior weaponry against them.

This party includes exploration, infrared laser guns, den building and imagination play. Best suited for ages 6+.

“My son had his party here last weekend and it was really fantastic! All the kids absolutely loved it and some even said it was the best party they have ever been to! The grown up also particularly enjoyed the den building!!!!”
