A GREAT SPACE TO BOUNCE THE CHILDREN’S ENERGY
OFF ON A RAINY DAY OR FOR A BREAK ON A JOURNEY

THE PLAYBARN

Machinations Play Barn is a great space to bounce the children’s energy off on a rainy day or for a break on a journey or a Birthday party. They can climb up it, slide down it, build in it, hide in it and generally rampage around it. There is plenty of open space for soft shape constructions and a little ball pool for babies. Grown ups can sit and watch where there are tables and food and drink can be taken in so long as it is kept off the carpeted area.

Entrance to the Play Barn costs £3.20 for over 1s between the end of March and the begining of September and £2.20 for the rest of the year. Under 1s go free, there is no time limit to your stay and once you have a ticket you can come and go as you please throughout the day.

Parents are responsible for their children at all times. We recommend that only children under 10 use the Play Barn in order to avoid small ones getting bumped by big ones but we ask everyone to exercise common sense and look out for each other.

We have loyalty cards for frequent users which allows every 5th visit free entrance.

Parties at Machinations are fantastic! The kids can go mad and your own house does not get trashed!

Further more we can provide the food and the party bags if you would like us to so all you have to do is turn up.

Party food is £3.50 a head and is always freshly made with healthy elements as well as treats and we will always include personal requests and favourites and cater for special dietary needs.

We regard everyone’s party as an individual occasion and will do our best to make it just right for your child.

IN HOUSE BAKERY

We have an in house bakery for special occasion cakes and a very personalised decorating service. Why not ask your child to create their own design and our very artistic cake lady will turn it into an icing master-piece.

 

RABBIT VILLAGE

You are very welcome to come and visit us (80p entrance fee) especially if you bring some juicy vegetable bits from the kitchen. If you are still and quiet we will come right up to you for food and you can stroke us gently.

We will not bite you unless you hurt us and please don’t ever chase us. If the weather is horrible you can watch us from the cafe window and we will do our best to entertain you (although you will occasionally catch us napping….).

 

EDUCATIONAL COURSES & KITS

Machinations offers a unique range of model making workshops using the Timberkits wooden mechanical models. Children get the chance to explore and understand basic mechanical principles and complete the construction of a working mechanical model.

Machinations houses a fascinating collection of contemporary automata (mechanical models) which offers a perfect springboard for the children’s imagination, inspiring them to tackle their own creations and stimulating their curiosity into how things work. Seeing the exhibition first is the ideal approach but we can also bring working models, kits and worksheets to your school and set up a workshop to suit your needs.
