Win an Exclusive Playhouse Company Playhouse with Carfest

Want to be in with a chance to WIN a beautiful playhouse* this summer? We’ve teamed up with Carfest to give away TWO of our creations with all proceeds to BBC Children in Need.



Visitors to Carfest this year can expect the usual crazy mix of cars, food, music and fabulous family fun. All profits from the festivals are donated to BBC Children in Need, raising over £10.5 million for disadvantaged children to date with another £3.25 million expected this year.
Money raised from Carfest events helps children facing poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect and disabled young people in the UK.

Live entertainment across the two weekend-long events includes music from the legendary Status Quo, De Niro loving Bananarama, sultry Texas and zany boys from Madness. Over in the food courts expect celebrity chefs Candice Brown, Joe Hurd and Anjelica Bell to be whipping up a storm and there’s more classic, supersport and kooky cars than you can shake a stick at. Mix that with a whole heap of wholesome family activities and you’re in for a great time.


Here at The Playhouse Company we think everyone deserves a shot at a happy and healthy childhood, which is why we’re proud to be supporting the North and South Carfest events again for 2018. We’ll be at both events Woodland Treehousewith a stunning selection of playhouses and we’d love you to come and get hands (and feet) on with them too!

We’re so excited to be visiting Carfest again this year that we’re raffling off one exclusive Carfest playhouse at each event. The playhouses have been made specially for Carfest, designed with love by Richard Frost, The Playhouse Company CEO.

Tickets for the raffle will only be available at the events.  If you haven’t got your tickets for Carfest yet, there are limited day tickets available. You can buy them HERE.

Come and join The Playhouse Company in the wilds of Bolesworth Castle, Cheshire on Friday 27th - Sunday 29th July and at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire on Friday 24th to Sunday 26th August for a full on weekend of fun, food and festivities with Carfest.

*Worth around £4,000 purchase necessary.

We Are Unable To Accept New Commissions Presently

We are a small company, set up and run by Richard and Kay and supported by a skilled team of 4 who help build and deliver our projects.

Richard has recently had a health scare, and during the next few months of his recuperation we have decided, reluctantly, to limit the number of projects we take on and have decided to stop taking new commissions until December 2021.

Richard does all the design and manages the build and installation, and Kay is the voice you will speak to and help with advice and then making sure your project runs smoothly from inception to the children enjoying it in your garden. Over the past 30 years we have completed well over 1,000 projects, all to a greater or lesser extent custom designed. It is a great privilege to design and build playhouse and treehouses, and for us almost as much fun to design and build as the children have pleasure thereafter. We firmly believe that in order to design and build a great playhouse project you must love it just as much. We do love what we do and this makes it all the more difficult for us to pause enquiries, but health is paramount so makes this the only decision.

We assure all existing customers that your delivery obligations will be met in full and are always available for any queries about existing products.

If you would like to register an interest for a project in 2022, please just send us an email or give us a call and we will re-connect at the end of the year by which time Richard will be fully charged and ready to enjoy exciting new projects.

Thank you for your support
