Are you looking for a unique and memorable birthday party for your child? Or perhaps you want to keep the children entertained at a work party or family event? Would you be interested in something a little weird-er and wild-er than usual?  

Our bespoke birthday parties and special event sessions provide an eclectic mix of sensory adventure, fireside folk tale and creative story-crafting, along with plenty of energetic outdoor games and arty activities that prepare everyone for eating plenty of cake! 


Every one of our imaginative activities makes use of the immediate environment be it garden, park or even indoors (because you should never be shy of bringing some wild inside) and each party and event session is carefully crafted to match your child's interests and personality. We pop round beforehand to have a chat about the space you wish to use and the types of games and creative activities your child and their friends will enjoy. 


"Epic Party! Thanks, we loved it!" (2017)

"The first thing my daughter said as we left was, 'Now that was fun Daddy, wasn't it!'" (2017)

"Our daughter had an amazing time! She won't take her wolf mask off or stop howling :) Sh'll definitely sleep well tonight!" (2017)


Sixty minute Bespoke Birthday and Special Event Workshop for up to 10 children - £80 

The price includes the cost of materials used in the session, the planning and resourcing of activities on offer, and the services of a Workshop Leader.

We require a £20 deposit to secure your booking and the remainder of the payment must be made 3 days in advance of the party. 

Here's a few tips about how to get the best out of your child’s party:

  • Two hours is usually plenty of time for children to spend at a party, regardless of the length of the planned activity.
  • It’s a good idea to have your planned activity before the children eat, although offering drinks beforehand is often well received! 
  • If you have toys out and around the venue, clearing them away for the main activity saves the children from getting distracted.
  • Adult participation is always enjoyed by 3-4yr olds but if you're not participating, adults should congregate in another area so children aren't distracted by background noise.
  • Parties outside are fantastic, but we can just as easily bring the wild inside if the weather is just not being helpful! On hot days shade is always advised, especially with all our energetic activities.

A little more about me...



Hi! I'm Pridie and I established The Wild of the the Words earlier this year. I'm the proud owner of two energetic young children, one crazy dog, far too many books, an inordinate amount of outdoor adventure gear, a mad inventor husband and a little blue VW camper van. 

So, as you can imagine - our world gets quite wild before we've even had breakfast:)

I've taught English for over fourteen years now and the one absolute and unshakeable truth that those years in education have taught me is that kids excel through engagement; if you can fire up their imagination then they'll fly in your subject. For me, this has always meant stepping away from traditional teaching strategies and embracing alternative learning environments - my favourite being the weird-er, wild-er world that begins just beyond the window. My firm belief in the superiority of experiential learning over learning confined to the classroom, has led me to continually seek and develop methods of teaching that rekindle curiosity and creativity in students; boosting their confidence in the subject and sharpening their skills without them even realising - because they're having too much fun!

My background:

I studied English Literature and Philosophy at university - a truly crazy combination but one that certainly inspired me to explore the world in the way I do now! Following this, I trained to become a secondary school teacher and now have fourteen years classroom experience teaching English Language and English Literature to Key Stage 3, 4 (GCSE) and 5 (A Level). While teaching I had the opportunity to take on some really interesting and rewarding roles including Head of Subject and Head of Year. I'm fascinated by the process of teaching and learning and really enjoy coaching and consulting with both colleagues and professionals outside the educational establishment in innovative and effective strategies. I'm also very interested in the development of education internationally and my work in Uganda over the last twelve years continues to provide me with incredibly humbling and constantly rewarding experiences. As well as classroom teaching, I also privately tutor students across the key stages, deliver outdoor adventurous training (which keeps the mountain monster in me satisfied) and enjoy volunteering for NGOs wherever possible!
