at your venue

Travelling around Essex, London, Suffolk and Kent (with our 5-star Animal Activities Licence) our knowledgeable team of keepers will share interesting information and stories about each of our beloved animals whilst our interactive approach enables all guests hands on encounters with them. 


We are perfect for children with an interest in animals or anyone looking to create that magical themed party. Also with a range of party options you can be sure to find one that suits your needs. 

But it’s not just for the children we will attend any type of party for any age, Hen Parties, Stag Parties, Weddings, if you are having a party we can bring the live entertainment to you.

We specialise in reptiles and invertebrates and provide a variety of snakes, lizards, tortoises, spiders, scorpions and other mini-beasts.

If, however, you do decide to book with another Animal Party please ONLY use those who are licensed by their Local Authority. If you choose a business without a licence then they are trading illegally, their Public Liability insurance could possibly be void and their animals may be kept in poor conditions.

Understanding the nature and features of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates is not only imperative to our line of work but something we really care about. Our keepers endeavour to pass this passion for animals on to our guests at parties. 


Experiencing our amazing animals first hand is always exciting and memorable. 


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. 

"Thank you so much for a fantastic party on Saturday afternoon. Our daughter and her friends had a wonderful time. They enjoyed the talk and especially the chance to meet all the animals up close afterwards. And then the children’s - and parents’ - jaws dropped when Peanut came out of her crate. He was definitely the star of the show!"


We'd love to hear from you
