If there is evidence of a criminal act, any recordings may be passed to the appropriate authorities.

There are some important rules though to keep everyone safe. There is no smoking in the play area, this is strictly prohibited. We also allow no food, drink or chewing gum or glassware in the soft play area.

We ask all shoes are removed but socks must be worn at all times. Arms and legs must be covered. All jewellery, badges and sharp objects must be removed.

We are pleased to provide this facility and whilst we have attempted to make it as safe as possible, the very nature if children’s play activity means that accidents can occasionally happen.

Parental supervision is essential at all times.

Decorations- sparklers, indoor fireworks, candles (other than the birthday cake), confetti or glitter bombs are not permitted. If you wish to bring in table decorations or balloons you are welcome to but this will need to be set up in the time inclusive of your allocated party slot and not before. We are unable to attach decorations to our fixtures and fittings that may leave a lasting mark or cause damage.

If Guests are bringing a cake into Wickys Play Factory or have booked an exclusive party venue hire without our food package they will need to sign a disclaimer in order to be able to bring their own catering into the building. During normal opening hours guests are not permitted to bring in their own catering other than a birthday cake.
