Travelling around all of Essex and parts of 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 and mini-beasts

Please bare in mind we will require parking provided at any location and we cannot carry the animals up or down large amounts of stairs.  

Read our blog "You can trust us" to find out why you can trust us to provide the best party ever. Click here to read the blog. 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

"What a brilliant party! Pete and Becca were very informative and friendly. I was really impressed by how they were happy to get the animals back out...for the children once their confidence grew. Nothing felt rushed. It really was a party to remember"

Gill, 2020

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.
