Play Chest is Leading the Party Industry with Covid-19 Responsible Party Hire

Husband and wife dream team, Harry and Lucie Dorrans founded Play Chest in 2017, a year after adopting their baby son.  Harry and Lucie really wanted to start a business that would involve the family – whilst being lots of fun! Offering activities and get-together ideas such as LEGO®, Railway Track (Thomas & Friends) to Karaoke themed parties, Play Chest deliver their Covid-19 clean equipment on a Thursday and collect on a Monday – giving everyone oodles of time to really enjoy their Play Chest activities.

Since easing out of lockdown, Harry and Lucie have found that customers have been coming back to Play Chest and helping this family run business not just to survive but thrive.  One of the reasons why customers keep returning to Play Chest is because this husband and wife team has implemented a set of stringent hygiene procedures – way above the guidelines advised by the government.  Each element of a party experience goes through a rigorous cleaning process; both before their party boxes are couriered out, and of course after their party boxes are delivered back to them (https://www.playchest.co.uk/How-We-Clean-Hire-Equipment). 

Play Chest’s top 4 Party Experiences chosen by their customers include:

· Nerf™ Blaster: with 17 battle zone elements, blasters, loads of soft tipped blaster darts, camouflage tents and games

· Giant Garden Games: with Jenga, Connect Four, Kerplunk and many other games on a rather large scale

· Funfair Party Experience: with classic funfair games like Hook a Duck, Target Shooting, Tin Can Alley, Target Golf (and more)

· Retro Arcade Gaming Party Experience: containing up 4 screens, 6 retro consoles, over 200 games (including top brands such as Super Nintendo, Sega Mega Drive, Game Boy and PlayStation)

As Harry says, “When you open up a party box from Play Chest®, you're stepping into a world of party possibilities”, adding that “ it’s our mission to make your party so much fun – we’ve put great attention to detail in each of our party packages having tested and refined each party package with children (and adults) for maximum enjoyment.”

Harry and Lucie have many years’ experience in children's entertainment (https://www.playchest.co.uk/about-play-chest), which has helped towards the company and their mission, which is to provide a unique, quality and fun party experience for children and adults alike. “We want each boy or girl to have an amazing party that will be the talk of the playground,” founder, Lucie Dorrans comments.

And this mission has been enjoyed by over 30,000 children, right across the UK from Edinburgh to London and enjoys five star feedback ratings.

Play Chest packages also include a free return delivery service to any mainland UK address provided by DPD. They also provide a time slot on the morning of delivery and collection. 

Party Experiences are delivered on a Thursday and collected the following Monday so that each Play Chest box can be enjoyed to the max!
