Party like a Pirate

Pirate Playland

IMG_0534Setting sail from the cove of Toronto Workers Club are children’s birthday parties. Complete with a party host, food, drink, ice-cream cake, decorations, 2 hours of non-stop fun, invitations and more.

The first of our parties in July are booking up and our party staff are as excited as the mini-pirates themselves.

Pirate Playland opened on Saturday 3 June with a grand opening complete with a 6 foot tall balloon pirate, pirate face painters, free food for the kids and more. Since then our ship has been a massive hit for children of all ages.

IMG_4453When you book a Pirate Party you receive exclusivity to the party room with direct access to Pirate Playland. Although, the pirate ship isn’t exclusive, it’s still the perfect setup for a party.

Since we’ve launched, we’ve had all sorts of questions raised. So we took the time to put together some Frequently Asked Questions. Which, we ask you read before sending through your online booking enquiry.

IMG_4452Recently we did a photo shoot of some very lucky mini-pirates who got to party and play while smiling for our cameras. We can’t wait to launch the advertising campaign with our mini-models. They did a fantastic job. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our major campaign.

If you’re interested to know more, or book your child’s party, check out our Pirate Party Booking Form and webpage. Our party staff  would love to discuss your plans.

What to do during the Holidays?

School HolidaysWith the success of the January School Holiday workshops, we’ve now released the April workshop dates. Here’s what’s going on…

8833-15We love Pirates at the Workies, so our Pirate Party is back on Tuesday 11 April from 11am. Suitable for children 4 to 12 years of age, everyone party attendee can dress-up, join in the fun, games an activities with prizes for our best pirate and more.

Everyone loves Lego, even the big kids, so this time we’ve launched two Lego Workshops. Wednesday 12 and Wednesday 19 April. A Pirate Lego Workshop and an Underwater Lego Workshop. Hosted by a qualified Lego builder and representative, there will be building competitions, games, activities and prizes. The Lego workshops are a little more involved and are open to children 6 to 12 years of age.

Then to finish us up we’ve got one for all the Mermaids at heart, with an Underwater Party on Tuesday 18 April. Proudly presented by our Mermaid Host there will be games, activities and prizes. We’re hoping to see everyone’s mermaid scales and beautiful tails. This party is suitable for children 4 to 12 years of age.mermaid10

Each party and workshop is accompanied by lunch, a drink and a qualified party host. The only condition is, parents or guardians must remain on the premises, as the parties and workshops are not a creche or care program.

Tickets for each of parties and workshops can be purchased from the Club or by phoning 49592011. Tickets are $15 per child. Reservations cannot be held without a paid ticket. We do prefer that all tickets are purchased in advance as there is only 30 spots per party available.

You can also find, all our details on the webpage and under our Facebook Events.

We look forward to seeing all of our little pirates, lego master builders (in the making) and mini mermaids.

Santa says Thanks!

Each year the Club dedicates months of preparation and ounces of volunteer dedication to deliver the Members’ Kids Christmas Party.

img_1879The volunteers are comprised of Directors, Management and Staff from Toronto Workers Club Group, the Macquarie Scorpions Rugby League Club and the fantastic Firemen from Toronto Fire Station. Each volunteer donates their time to ensure each child and adult has the most memorable and enjoyable experience. This dedication comes with happiness, enthusiasm and patience, even if they’ve worked the night before or will work that evening.

It takes approximately six months to effectively plan the party including the ordering of an obscene number of sausages (thanks Toronto Quality Meats) and onions (yes one of the Club’s Chef’s actually cut up 50kg of onion by hand), picking and packaging fun rides, obstacle img_2030courses and water attractions. But it doesn’t stop there…don’t forget the hand packed lolly bags.

Skip forward a few months and the volunteers, led by the Marketing Manager, Christine Wenta and Duty Manager, Michelle King, are excited for another overwhelming day! Volunteers meet with coffee and gazebos in hand from 7am to set up the entire event. Remember, most of these staff worked the night before, and not all are locals.

img_2001The day’s filled with four non-stop hours of fun in the sun, sausage sangas (with the right amount of sauce and onion), icy cold drinks, snow cones, Santa photos and much much more.

We are happy to report that the day was enjoyed by many and there was no hesitation in spreading the fantastic news…

“Was a great day for it and great value for money…the kids loved it thank you!”, Anthony Cause

“Thank you, it was a great day. The kids had a ball “, Debbie Dye

“Thank you for the hard work my family had a fabulous day out “, Kylie Montgomery

“Awesome day as always”, Nicole Carrall and,

“Thank you my grandson had a great day”, Alison Clapham Roberts. 

Although the weather was questionable upon setup, the day turned out to be one of the biggest, most enjoyable and fun filled in a long time.

img_2017So, on behalf of the Board of Directors and Club Managers, I would like to personally thank the Toronto Workers Club Group team volunteers, team leaders Christine and Michelle and the Macquarie Scorpions Rugby League volunteers. The Members’ Kids Christmas Party would not go ahead without this dedication, enthusiasm and of course, a lot of coffee!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,
