A HEREFORD business which is moving and rebranding has announced the date of its grand opening.

Enchanted Kingdom, in Maylord Shopping Centre, has known for months that its lease was coming to an end. It is now rebranding as it moves to Broad Street.

Josh Davies and Orin Vallely, both 30, set up the intimate studio theatre for children, aiming to bring live interactive experiences in November 2018.

Having "desperately searched" for a new venue where they could continue their offering but also expand, they have decided to open Enchanted Tea House – with a twist.


There, the pair will offer a family-friendly tea house, open to all but focused on younger guests.

The doors to the new premises will open at 9am on Monday (February 6) and they will give the first 20 customers 20 per cent off all food and drink.

"Our day-to-day offerings will include all the usuals you would expect from any great quality coffee shop," Josh Davies, from Hereford, said.

"Freshly ground coffee, made just how you like it, pots of tea and a selection of sweet and savoury snacks made and supplied by local companies, using the freshest ingredients - you’ll find no factory-made products here!

"What we like to think sets us apart is that we are a space for you to kick back and relax with your little ones in tow, without the usual worries that can come when entering an eatery with younger guests.

"In addition to a selection of children’s sandwiches and snacks - all supplied locally again, we have colouring sheets and crayons as well as our Sensory Forest Room which will be playing children’s movies and cartoons throughout the day, so your little ones can pull up a bean bag whilst you get that all-important catch up in."


On top of the day-to-day offerings, they will also provide a variety of themed events and live singing shows on selected weekend and school holiday dates.

"We hope that you’ll find our tea house a place you and your little ones can really enjoy time and time again," he said.

"With good food, coffee and a little something different on offer for our younger guests, we like to think we’ve got it covered."
