These events are always really popular and there is so much to see and do that it’s a brilliant day out for the whole family.

Our Open Days are a major event in the Bleakholt calendar. It’s a special day for us as we attempt to raise much needed funding to enable us to take care of all our animals. These events are even more important to us now than ever before and we never cease to be amazed by the support shown. If you’ve never been before then you are in for a treat!

The Open Day runs from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is a donation of only £2 per Adult and children are free! Please come along and share the fun with us.

Pottery Painting and Sand Art

These activities are really popular with adults and children alike.  It’s so much fun and you get a perfect work of art to take home with you. So let those creative juices flow!

The Owls Trust

Regular visitors to our Open Days are The Owls Trust, who will once again be bringing along some of their rescue Owls. This is such a popular attraction as it gives you a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these magnificent birds. Definitely not to be missed!

Activities for the Children

There will be a bouncy castle, children’s rides, a Face Painter, glitter tattoos and plenty of other activities especially for the kids! Amongst others we will have an inflatable basketball game so try your luck!

Good Food

There’s always plenty to choose from when you get hungry. There’s our on-site Café with delicious homemade food, cold snacks and drinks and a Hot Dog stand – as well as the sweet stuff for treats!

Out and about….

There are also plenty of stalls, anything from pot plants to crafts and plenty of other surprises.

Our Shop

Why not pay a visit to our shop which has all your pet needs as well as a huge selection of gifts, souvenirs, toys, toiletries and so much more – so, go on, treat yourself!

Our Animals
