5 Reasons Why We Have One of the Best Birthday Party Venues in Sheffield

If you’re a Sheffield native, there’s a good chance you already know how lively the city and general area can be! There is a fantastic choice of party venues Sheffield has on offer, as well as stacks of great entertainment packages. However, what many Sheffield venues can lack is that unique experience. Here at Owlerton Stadium, we are always proud to present unique birthday parties Sheffield locals and greyhound racing fans can take part in all year round. As well as being a big name in the Christmas and New Year party scene, we are also well-known for our fantastic, flexible birthday packages.

But what are some of the great reasons why you should hire Owlerton Stadium above all other birthday party venues Sheffield has to offer? Here are just five to help you get started.


There’s Nothing Quite Like Trackside Entertainment

Chances are you’ve probably been to a birthday party or two in your life – but how many of them have taken place in full view of a glorious greyhound track? Of all the party venues Sheffield has to offer, Owlerton Stadium presents incredible at-seat entertainment that’s always unique. There is nothing quite like taking in the thrill of dog racing on your special day.

With our packages and boxes, you can celebrate your birthday in style with a front-row seat to watch your dogs come in. Whether you win or not, you will always be guaranteed of a great time. Not many Sheffield venues will cater you for food and drink quite like Owlerton – and the best part is, you can pay for much of your menu before you arrive!


You’ll Get a Freebie on Us

Owlerton Stadium is proud to offer birthday visitors a free three-course meal, or a free six-pack admission, when their special day rolls around. This means you are completely covered when you visit us during the month of your birthday! To activate this deal, all we ever ask you to do is sign up to our email subscriber list. Within 24 hours of submitting your details to us, we will deliver a voucher to you that’s valid across the year. What a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday!

We are always pleased to host birthday parties in our exquisite restaurant and lounge bars, meaning that you and your party can sit back and relax with a delicious menu of food and access to some of the finest bubbly this side of the Pennines. How many other Sheffield party venues give you access to a full menu and drinks package as well as full view of some exhilarating racing? Not many!

Therefore, do always take your time to look through our packages and to let us know if you have any queries or concerns.

It’s a great way to get the party started, and other birthday party venues Sheffield has to offer don’t go anywhere near as wild as us!


Choose a Private Box

If you’d prefer to keep your celebration closed-off and between a select group of family and friends, we are always only too happy to oblige. We want to make sure your birthday party is completely tailored to your wants and needs. Therefore, if you’d like to take in the racing from your own VIP lounge or box, you can! We offer amazing competitive prices on all our boxes throughout the year, as well as on our hospitality suites, so we encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible to book and avoid disappointment.

There are plenty of great ways to celebrate your birthday at Owlerton Stadium. However, we perfectly understand that some people will want to celebrate in style! Our hospitality suites and private boxes are more affordable than you may think, and what’s more, you and your guests will benefit from wonderful buffet and bar facilities while you watch the races.
