Newly licensed HaaHoos invite local businesses to get creative with their colleagues.

HaaHoos painting and pottery centre in Twyford have recently become fully licensed.   After a hugely successful Jubilee party in the summer, HaaHoos launched their Pots & Pinot evenings on the last Thursday of every month,  these were aimed at adults looking for a relaxing fun night out with nibbles and a glass of wine included.

HaaHoos Manager, Sian commented “ We had started to provide a selection of alcoholic drinks at various events  and parties so it made sense to become fully licensed to make it a permanent option at all events”

HaaHoos are known for their hassle free birthday parties for children, providing a fun range of party packages, all the food, cake and party games if necessary.  However the new alcohol licensing has allowed them to expand their range of parties to attract local companies to come along for a corporate / social event with a difference.   £29 per person, for a minimum group of 15 people covers painting a mug or plate, glazing and firing, arrival drinks and a hot main meal.  There are lots of other items to paint but these are priced separately.

Local company,  Ella’s Kitchen, who produce a range of 100% organic foods for babies and kids recently took 30 of their staff to HaaHoos.

Nicole, Head of Ella’s-ness, Ella’s Kitchen said  “Haahoos organised a really fun and relaxing evening for 30 of our team to get creative!  Their friendly team made planning a group event so easy as they were incredibly helpful and flexible, making us feel welcome right from the start – and no request was too small – from silly games, to a glass of bubbles and a tasty curry”

Similarly the Tile and Bathroom Place in Twyford were looking for a venue for a party but also wanted somewhere that could add an element of team bonding.   HaaHoos was ideal and provided delicious hot food, a range of beverages and even a mix of party games!   Everyone had to paint mugs for another member of the team so now, every day, they enjoy their morning cuppa in the mug made for them by their colleagues – a great start to each day!

If you would like to know more about the packages and events at HaaHoos  call us on 0118 9321441 or email info@haahoosceramics.co.uk
