Party Hire

We love a party here at The Bacon, and we're all about celebrating. We've got plenty of versatile space to host a variety of events – Whether its lively kids parties with bouncy castles, vibrant discos, or elegant sit-down dinners - we've got a space for everything.

Choose Jaffa Cake Hall or Hobnob Hall

Great for children's (or grown up) parties

To the left of the building, Hobnob Hall has direct access to the ramp, a large kitchen and you can even use the outdoor court if it is available.

On the right of the building, just inside the main entrance, Jaffa Cake Hall is an equally versatile area, good for young children. Jaffa has its own kitchen and an enclosed, covered outdoor space and you can use the garden if it is available. Jaffa Cake Hall is approximately 15 x 18 metres (49 x 59 feet). The Soft Play Room leads from Jaffa Cake Hall and can be hired with the hall.
