5 Party Ideas for Tweens in North East England

Disclosure - I have worked with some of the businesses in this post in the past but they have not asked or paid to be included in this post.

5 Party Ideas for Tweens in North East England

I don't book a birthday party for H, H and J every year but over the years we have tried a few different options between us so today I thought I would do a little round-up and share some of our favourite party experiences for tweens and hopefully give you a few ideas. Let me know your ideas in the comments too.

1 - Glitz & Glam Glamping Slumber Party 

You may remember, Heidi enjoyed the most wonderful Unicorn Sleepover party courtesy of Glamping Slumber Parties this year, well they also offer a fantastic 'Glitz & Glam' package for ages 11+. I highly recommend Hayley and her team - they have the very highest standards and provide absolutely everything you need for a fantastic sleepover party.

    The Glitz & Glam package includes: 
  • Tepee & Mattress hire with pink and gold glitz throws, make-up themed cushions, gorgeous rugs, rose gold fairy lamps
  • Each guest will receive a luxurious sleep mask, make-up bag, nail polish, lip gloss and candy floss shower gel to take home and keep 
  • The option to add extras such as spa robe hire or non-alcoholic pink fizz

2 - Lush Party 

Earlier this year, we had the chance to experience a birthday party at Lush intu Eldon Square. Parties start at just £15 per person (with £5 redeemable in store) which I think is fantastic value. Parties can include games, bath bomb making, product testing, pampering sessions and more. The staff are fantastic and really take care of everything (although one adult does need to stay and supervise).

3 - VR Gaming

Harry and his friends are obsessed with VR gaming and headsets. They have dropped in price a fair bit over the last few years but they are still pretty expensive. We used to visit Pirate Escape in Whitley Bay and use their VR Games Room but they seem to have closed this part of their business down. A quick google and I found a flight simulator / VR experience centre in Brunswick Industrial Estate. The centre runs a variety of VR experiences including a 30 minute Star Wars experience for just £10 pp. They also offer tailored birthday parties for 10 children.

4 - VIP Cinema Trip 

Going to the cinema with a few friends is a pretty standard way to celebrate a birthday and something that my children always enjoy. These days, there are lots of ways you can pimp up the experience and make it that little bit more special. Cineworld in the Gate offers Screen X, 4DX and Super Screen experiences or how about a trip to the brand new Everyman Cinema on Grey Street where you can order food and drinks straight from your plush seating area. I'm sure their build your own sundaes will be a hit with tweens. Finally, if you're looking for something a little more intimate, you can privately hire Jam Jar Cinema and host your own screening for £195. You're allowed to bring your own food and drinks into the foyer area beforehand - something like takeaway pizzas, McDonalds or a buffet from Evan's Bistro up the road would work really well.

5 - Battlezone Laser 

Harry has attended a few parties at Battlezone Laser and hosted a few of his own there over the years. Again, its a place where everything is taken care of. Parties are available from £12pp and include a pre-mission safety briefing, laser weapon hire and ammo, supervised missions (by CRB-checked staff) and camouflage overall hire. Parents and grown-ups are welcome to join the party too or they can just sit back and watch in the parent viewing area (which is my preference). Food is also available to add on from just an additional £1 per child. Find out more and book online here.
