snakes alive visit all types of uniform groups and after school or youth clubs around Essex. We can help children earn their animal badges, run informative workshops or provide interest to fun days. We also attend many adult special interest groups from Women's Institute to Art classes. 

Read on for more information on why to choose us and the various themes we regularly deliver on. 


Reptiles and more

We bring a selection reptiles and invertebrates including snakes, lizards, tortoises, spiders, scorpions and other mini-beasts. 

Low Cost

We aim to keep our costs as low as possible for group providers and will try to adapt our offering to suit your budget where possible. We can also offer a discount for multiple bookings. 

Flexible Sessions

We are happy to attend individual groups or present to a wider age range if you wish to join multiple groups together. 


Experiencing our amazing animals first hand is always exciting and memorable and we always include age appropriate animals to ensure everyone gets a turn. 

PLanning and UMAs

Our team member Becca is a Little Owl at a local Brownie Group and understands the importance of working with set Unit Meeting Activities (UMAs) including fitting in within the time and challenge levels.  


We have been attending parties since snakes alive was established in 1996 and hold a 5 star Animal Activities Licence (AAL) for our welfare standards.
