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. The 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. Check out our website nearer the time to see what else is happening on the day.

The Owls Trust

Regular visitors to our Open Days are The Owls Trust, who bring 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 are always plenty of activities for the kids, with anything from children’s rides and bouncy castle, to face painting and craft activities and games, balloon modelling and even, on occasion, a stilt walker!

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 our popular Hot Dog stand. We usually have extra treats such as our ‘famous’ burger bar or B-B-Q, or hot potatoes, or cake delights!

Out and about….

There are plenty of stalls to browse around, anything from pot plants to crafts and plenty of others, so take your time looking for that extra something special, or a real bargain!

The Bleakholt Shop

Why not pay a visit to our on-site shop which has all your pet needs, as well as a huge selection of gifts, souvenirs, toys, toiletries, clothing. We also have a wide range of Bleakholt special jams, chutneys, biscuits and sweets – so, go on, treat yourself!

Our Animals

Of course the real stars of our show are always our wonderful residents who make it all worthwhile, so have a wander around our huge site and say hello. Our dedicated staff are always pleased to chat to you.
