Is This Soft Play

Hocus Pocus Play is a bit different to the majority of play areas. We think of it as interactive play – as it combines elements of sensory, educational, and imaginative play to engage little brains.

Although we do have some areas that are padded for comfort and safety, Hocus Pocus Play is NOT a soft play centre. This means that there are some non-padded areas – so we advise that children bring anti-slip socks to protect their feet, and also that parents and carers supervise their children to make sure they are not behaving in a way that will result in injury to themselves or another child.

Can We Buy Food And Drink?

A wide range of food and drink can be purchased from Magic Beans Cafe and consumed in the seating area of Hocus Pocus Play. There is a large menu to cater for all ages – whether you are looking for finger food, big breakfasts or a tasty lunch – and the food is freshly prepared by the cafe staff. There is also a delicious range of cakes and ice cream.

Any food must be purchased from the cafe as we don’t allow people to bring their own (with the exception of baby’s bottles). Just order from the counter.

How May Children Can You Admit At Once?

We have always limited the number coming in at any one time to a level that is comfortable, so everyone can have fun and have ample space. We are presently admitting a maximum of forty people, including adults and children.

Is There A Childminder’s Discount?

We don’t have a childminder’s discount at present, but if you bring a group of children you could find that a private hire session is a cost effective way to enjoy the play area with social distancing.
