Fun ‘n’ Frolic started trading in 1987 from an 840sq.ft store in the centre of Reading, long before the Town Centre became the thriving metropolis that it is now

In those early days the store, staffed by a single employee, sold jokes, novelties and hired a small range of fancy dress costumes.

Moving to a larger store the range of products increased and with it the number of employees, the store now offered fireworks, balloons and a huge range of costumes to purchase and hire, together with a massive range of costume accessories.

Today our store is located on the fringe of the town and has grown into a 10,000sq.ft mega store offering even more products and services!

This really is the one stop party store, stocking everything to make any party or celebration a huge success.

Just browsing our website will show examples from our vast range * but, it won’t beat a visit to the largest, most exciting party store in Europe, just click on the video on our home page and you will see what we mean.

* Not all products on our website are available in our Reading store

We are only a 45 minute drive from London, so, go on come and see us, you won’t regret it!

MEET THE TEAM:  At Fun ‘n’ Frolic we firmly believe that dressing up makes a party that bit special. To prove the point our Christmas 2014 party venue had a 20’s theme event, so meet the team dressed in their best gatsby era finery.
