The gathering appeared to have been well planned as gifts and balloons were found at the home.
Both organisers, two men aged 22 and 44, were reported while everyone else was advised and made to leave the premises.
“This gathering had people of widely different ages and from different households present,” said Chief Superintendent Stephen Clayman from East Area Basic Command Unit.
“Whilst I fully understand that people want to get together to celebrate events, this is definitely not the time to do it in person.
“A gathering like this can have tragic consequences for all those involved and risks spreading this terrible virus to our loved ones and the wider community. Please have no doubt, we are determined to deal robustly with those who breach the Covid regulations in this way.”
