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 Days run 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.

Special Christmas Event!
Santa’s Workshop – Sunday 2 December 2018
We will be joined by a very special guest – Santa himself. Come along and visit him in his grotto and tell him your Christmas Wish List.
