We booked Little City for Matilda's 4th birthday party and they all loved it so much. If your little one loves role play you need to go to Little City.

My two love youngest first joined in a session when all he could do was sit on the floor and attempt to eat the construction bricks, now hes starting to really enjoy the experience and immerse himself in it in his own way. The set up is play, and the opportunity for children to do as much or little as they want.

Just had the best time today, Archie mixed up the themes in true Archie style but he was a happy busy lad all the way through! So creative....great session !

Parties at Little City

Looking for something different for a birthday party?


Hire Little City exclusively for up to 25 children. Let the birthday girl or boy be the mayor for the day and run the whole city for themselves and their friends!

Because Little City is a fully mobile role play centre it can be set up with minimal fuss and in almost any location. 

Contact me to check availability and to make your booking.

N.B. You'll need to book a hall or have a very large house !

Hi, my name is Katie. I am a mum of two, Percy (4) and Eva Jane (2) we live at home with Dad/Husband and our dog, Nahla.


My hobbies include dog walks in the woods or at the beach, exercising and baking. I previously worked in dentistry and have been lucky enough to be at home since Percy was born. In 2020 I turned 30 and Percy started school, next year Eva Jane will start nursery which has made me decide it was time to do something I would love.


The Little City franchise is a fantastic opportunity to do just that and for me to still be available for my family. Both kids and I thought Little City was amazing the first time we went. It was everything I am passionate about, wooden toys, eco friendly where possible and makes our precious little ones happy.


I have big boots to fill but I can’t wait to get started and meet you all.
