Mess Around

You won’t find monotonous, weekly sessions at Mess Around!

We are about providing children with the opportunity to get messy and explore exciting new sensory activities.  With lots of activities to explore, including our famous painting wall, the little ones can squelch, pour, mix and get messy to their hearts content. Our parties run throughout the UK by our wonderful, dedicated franchise leaders, bringing children larger-than-life unique messy fun!

Our franchise network is rapidly expanding and we are looking for new leaders who can combine their marketing, event, sales and business management skills to run our Mess Around programme in their local area.

It’s an exciting time to join our team as the Mess Around business model has welcomed two new programmes to its family. Messberaver our glow-in-the-dark neon party which caters for children and adults and Slime Lab UK aimed at primary and secondary school aged children. Our model offers the opportunity to reach out to a new audience, earn additional revenue and to provide a truly unique experience.

When you join the team you become part of the Mess Around family. With a fantastic franchise package, we provide you with equipment worth over £2000, full training and mentoring, marketing support and we even co host your first launch event to ensure you get off to a flying start. To top it off you will be part of an amazing team who are passionate about Mess Around and share our ambition to be the largest messy play provider in the UK.

If you’re looking for a new challenge then we would love to hear from you!
