How do you celebrate?

Welcome to the party shop!

Our party shop is a cheery, family venue where you can find things from all over the world that are used in all kinds of different celebrations. Every day somewhere in the world, something is being celebrated. We don’t all share the same celebrations, but we all like a party. Take a look around in our party shop and discover celebrations you didn’t know existed. Do our music quiz, learn a festive dance or pick the best party outfit!
