Animal Experiences For Your Event

Lion Learners provide exciting, interactive animal handling activities for events, or as something different to run alongside your day to day activities. Our familiar and exotic animals from around the world include lizards, snakes, rabbits, guinea pigs, mega minibeasts and more, which we can set up indoors or outdoors for a ‘meet and greet’ with the public. People can come and go from us as they wish, they will have the chance to hold the animals and will also be able to learn all about them.

We have visited all sorts of places including museums, libraries, markets, garden centres and country parks. We can run holiday activities for children’s clubs and creepy creatures for halloween, and we always prove to be a very popular attraction. We can set up indoors at any time of year, or outdoors in Spring and Summer.

Alternatively, we can do presentations to groups of up to 30 children, during which they will be able to interact with the animals. Presentations can be themed.

Prices usually start from £100.

Contact your local presenter for more information.

During a one hour presentation, children are likely to meet between six and nine animals, depending on the group. Animals are likely to include rabbits, guinea pigs, snake, lizard and some weird and wonderful creepy crawlies. When we do a meet and greet session with the animals, we bring a good variety of animals suitable for the particular situation, please contact your local presenter if you would like more information.

Each presenter has their own animals, who live at the presenters’ home. To find out which animals your local presenter has, please visit their presenter page by visiting the Book Now page. Please feel free to make a request for a particular animal, and if it is possible for the animal to be there, then it will be.

See our Animal Welfare page for more information about our animals and how we care for them.

Ask Lionel

My child wants a pet

December 13, 2018

Dear Lionel, my son is always asking for a pet but we don’t have the space for a cat or dog. What other types of animals would you suggest as a good first pet? Owning a pet can be great for children and can help...
