Town of Stratford- BIRTHDAY PARTY BOOKINGS- Information

 

The Town of Stratford offers Birthday Party bookings at the

Stratford Town Centre, 234 Shakespeare Drive.

*So what does a Birthday Party booking include at the Town Centre?

Birthday Parties are held only on Saturdays and Sundays.

Saturdays 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.

Sundays 11:00 am to 1:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm.

A Birthday Party booking includes half the gym for one hour and the stage area for one hour directly following your one hour in half the gym.

For example, if you booked your Birthday Party from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm you would have half the gym from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm and the stage area from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.

You may not have both half the gym and the stage area at the same time. There could be another program/ party on the stage while you are in the gym.

You are welcome to come 15 minutes before your booking time to get settled. If the stage is available you may do some decorating during this time. You have 15 minutes after your event time to clean up the stage area from your party.

We are happy to provide this additional 30 minutes, at no cost, but we do ask that you be respectful to those coming after you to ensure everyone has a great Birthday Party experience.

The Gym Supervisor will be on hand to get your equipment to play with while you are in the gym area. The equipment room will be kept locked for safety reasons but you can request equipment anytime. You are responsible to put the equipment back where it was found after use.

The Gym Supervisor can also get you additional cleaning supplies if necessary.

You are responsible to supervise all children attending your event. The Town Centre is a public building.

 

*How much does it cost?

Cost for Birthday Party bookings is $30.00 for the rental and a $200.00 refundable damage deposit. We do require both the rental fee and deposit at time of booking. A form is also to be completed requesting contact information and rental agreement at the  time of booking.

 

*How does the Damage Deposit work?

The easiest way to cover the $200.00 damage deposit is to use your credit card . The $200.00 amount is not put through your credit card unless damage is done. The credit card number is sent to the office shredder the first business day after the booking date. You are also welcome to pay with cash that will be returned the first business day after the booking date or a cheque for the $200.00 amount payable to Town of Stratford that will be shredded the first business day after the booking. As with the credit card number, the cheque is not processed for payment unless damage is done during your booking.

The damage deposit policy is for all bookings with the Town of Stratford for any facility.
