Please note we are not currently running our birthday workshops due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, we are taking bookings for parties from March 2021.
We will continue to watch the situation carefully and will update you on any other developments.
What could be more different or exciting than birds and bugs at a birthday party?!
On our birthday workshops children will get the opportunity to discover the secrets of the undergrowth and delve underneath the leaves of the treetops in our minibeast handling session.
The children will really get the chance to get hands on and stuck in with our “explore animal artefacts” session where we may bring out feathers, skulls, owl pellets and falconry equipment amongst other curiosities we have collected over our years working in animal collections around the UK.
The children will then get the chance to meet one of our birds of prey up close and ask as many questions as they can think of. Finally, with their friends cheering them on and cameras at the ready, the birthday child will get the opportunity to fly our beautiful barn owl “Nola” or our little kestrel “Merula” to finish of the day and make it a birthday they will never forget!
45 minutes £100
Why not book your party at River Bourne? The straw bale room is a lovely space to decorate, play games, dance, run around and, just on the doorstep, is the whole farmyard to explore and lots of friendly animals to meet! This is also the home base of the rest of our birds of prey who all love to meet new people, especially our little burrowing owl “Squidge”.
The room hire also includes a guided tour where you can meet and feed the animals and a tractor trailer ride around the water meadows (weather permitting!).
PLEASE NOTE a maximum of 6 people can handle birds on a birthday experience. Aside from the birthday child, each additional handler will incur an add on of £10pp. Guests who wish to handle the birds must be a minimum of 6 years old.
