Bubble garden parties

The animals can’t wait to come along to your party and we have put special measures in place to make sure everyone stays safe.

  • Meet animals safely in your own garden
  • Small groups to ensure social distancing
  • Animal handling may be possible, please see below for details

What to expect

Fun, excitement and amazing animal antics! Our ethical animal experiences let children get up close to animals, in a safe, no risk way.

Animal interaction

Animal handling has been given the green light, but it must be done in a socially distanced way. Our covid-safe bubble parties are specially designed to let kids safely handle our friendly animals without contact with a presenter.

How animal petting would work:

  • After introducing the animal and explaining how to handle them, we would place the animal in a safe, low pen
  • Once we’ve stepped back, a child can step forward one at a time to stroke or handle the animal. Confident adults attendees can help, if needed
  • We’ll keep a close eye on everything, giving loads of interesting facts and answering any questions

For the animals’ welfare, there may be restrictions on which animals can be handled.

Small, bubble groups

A great way for families or small groups to celebrate a birthday together, our bubble garden parties have restricted numbers to allow for social distancing.

Kids (and adults) will be able to safely meet a range of fluffy, scaly and scuttling animals and watch them feeding, moving and playing.

Number of attendees must be agreed in advance with your presenter and cannot be changed on the day.  For your safety and to meet legal requirements, social distancing must be maintained at all times between anyone who is not in your household or support bubble. This unfortunately means large parties are not allowed for the time being.

Rigorous safety procedures

All our presenters are trained in Covid-19 disease control and have robust guidelines in place to prevent transmission and keep you, your family and guests safe. You can expect the highest standards of care and thorough risk assessments.
