'Pay What You Can' play centre

The Hideaway is aiming to become what we believe may be Britain's first free play centre. We want the centre to be accessible to all families, to enjoy learn and thrive together. 

The Hideaway has a 'Pay What You Can' policy. It costs us around £10 per visitor to run the Hideaway, but we know this is unaffordable for some. When you book to visit, you may choose a free ticket, or your own donation rate. You can also choose to use our 'tap to give' stand  once in the Hideaway - especially if it's your first visit! 

There's no pressure but please give generously if you're able. We can cla
im an additional 25% on all donations made by tax payers through the Gift Aid scheme, so please tick the Gift Aid box if you're eligible. 

If you book and can't make it, you can move your booking to another date within 24 hours of the booking. If you need to cancel, please do so to release your spaces for others. We sadly can't refund donations.
