Ginger Mum Column: Powerleague parties rock!

Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum talks about football birthday parties, an arcade haven and a virtual reality zone…

Marching into spring like – yes!!!!!

I’m like a kid on their birthday waiting for those first dew drops which signal time to ditch the teddy coats and rock the florals!

Talking of birthdays, we just had a fab party at Powerleague in MK for Dominic’s 7th celebration and found ourselves for the second time in Walnut Tree.

Years ago, Harry had an amazing party there. He had in excess of 10 friends for two hours of footie galore. The staff took care of everything, all I had to stump up was the cake.

The older they got, the less I relished sourcing goody bag fillers and booking entertainers!

Dominic and his friends had a brilliant time playing a match, busting the drills and generally having a blast. The birthday child even gets a pair of football boots and a football when you go for the full party package!

Check them out at Have you been to Xscape recently? Myself and the kids spent a wet and windy Sunday holed up in there at the weekend, snug as bugs.

Funstation is a massive hit – they loved playing the arcade games, both modern and retro (remember this one below?) and collecting bonus tokens along the way.

They then can choose from a huge range of treats according to their loot, from sweets to even a PS4 if they win big!

Next stop was the virtual reality zone Rush VR where they spent ages trying out the various zones. There’s something really entertaining about watching people acting out in complete silence oblivious to our amused gazes.

Between these attractions, the Snozone, Cineworld, Hollywood Bowl, Gravity, not to mention oodles of brilliant restaurants, we are so lucky to have one of these on our doorstep.

Oh, and I made my first visit to Fourth and Fifth in Witan Gate for brunch with the girls last week and was delighted it lived up to its fantastic local reputation.

Delicious food and a warm welcoming atmosphere – can’t say fairer than that. Have you been yet? Milton Keynes is definitely the place to be!
