Birthday parties

What could be more exciting than birds of prey at a birthday party?! 

On our party experiences the birthday child, and all of their friends, will get up close and personal to one of our beautiful birds of prey in a private, VIP flying demo in the Finkley event arena (2.30pm). Once everyone has learnt a thing or two about how these amazing predators survive in the wild, we will then invite the birthday child to step into the shoes of the falconer, and out into the arena, to take part in the demo.

With their friends cheering them on, the birthday child will experience the silence of the owl or the ‘killy killy’ cry of the kestrel up close, as one of our beautiful birds sails up to their glove.

There will be plenty of opportunities to pose for the camera and, at the end, the birthday child will get a little something from their new feathered friend to take home. A special moment and an unforgettable birthday memory for everyone involved!
