Parties for adults

Retreat to a different world with an evening at Flying Saucers

Celebrating a birthday, hen party, leaving do or just a good excuse for a night out with a difference?

Bring some wine, order takeaway, and get painting with friends!

There's a wide selection of pottery to choose from, all individually priced – something for everyone!

Plenty of ideas and suggestions, books and photos for inspiration and sponges and stamps which can be used on the pottery. And you don’t have to do any washing up!

We can open by arrangement on Tuesday or Thursday evenings for groups of 15 or more painters for around 2 hours, or you can also book during our normal opening hours. We can seat up to 26 painters on one floor but have a variety of seating options dependant on the size of the group.

You are welcome to bring your own cold buffet or order in take away (see 'How it works' below). We can provide plates and napkins at no extra charge and also keep some local takeaway menus which we can recommend!

Bring your own wine, plastic glasses and corkscrew are available with no corkage fees. Teas, coffees and cold drinks can be purchased from our café (as we are a cafe soft drinks are not BYO).



The party host / hen will receive a small plate to keep as a memento of the occasion. Often everyone writes a message on the plate as a unique keepsake of the gathering (this is upgraded to our standard medium plate for groups of 12+).

A studio fee covers the paints, glazing and firing… £6 per adult .Then it’s just a matter of picking your pottery! Pottery is individually priced. Mugs and bowls start from £12, plates from £14, wonderful collectable items at just £11, and we also have a lovely range of household items. 

You can also bring in your own wine and birthday cake / crisps.

 We set you up with the paints and then you create your own pottery masterpiece! You’ll get lots of advice and encouragement from our friendly staff and we have examples of pottery and books, sponges and stamps to help inspire! Pottery is then available to collect after firing, usually in 10 days.
