Latest Update

WOW! What a week! We have been so busy, we are sorry if you have had to wait for a reply or haven’t been able to get in touch, it has been none stop! November is now fully booked and December only has a few small slots left too!

The Nocturnal animals are extremely popular! Nursery and Reception linking it in with the Owl Babies Story and Year 1/2 classes are all  reading the Owl who was afraid of the dark so Woody the Barn Owl is very busy meeting the children with all of his night time friends. If you are looking to book do not hesitate or you will miss out! 

We have some exciting news, over the next few weeks we are interviewing for a new party host/animal handler to carry out a few parties at the weekends.

For those of you who have met me at a party or school workshop in the past, you will know I am self employed, the parties and workshops are by far the best part of my job! I have been running Animals Take Over on my own (with a little help from the other half) for over 10 years now, with the amount of workshops I carry out and the paperwork side of the business, it is leaving very little time for my wonderful children who are growing so fast. Over the lock downs last year, we decided it would be nice if we could employ a Party Host and I’m hoping this will take the pressure off slightly so I can spend a few extra hours with my girls and have some chill out time!

I will still be carrying out all school workshops. The Party Host that we employ will carry out parties on one day at the weekend while I carry them out on the other. We are not increasing the number of parties that we are carrying out or expanding just taking a little of the workload off myself!  The animals and party format will stay the same and our new party host will be amazing, I have no doubt about that having spent the last few weeks reading many CV’s and applications. A lot of amazing people have applied for the role, I wish I could employ them all, it is going to be tough making the final decision. 

We look forward to seeing you all soon

 Keep Safe!

Hi Lyndsay,
Thank you so much for a brilliant party today – we all loved it!
Party, Little Sutton, August 2021

Hi Lyndsey,
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for last week. I’m sorry I’m only just emailing, but I wanted to get in touch to say how great the session was. We have completed a lot of work following on from your visit, and the children have retained a lot of information. We will be in touch in the early part of the year to hopefully get you booked in again for next Summer.
Primary School, Warrington, July 2021

Hi Lyndsay
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for a brilliant show yesterday, the kids were mesmerised! The animals were adorable and you were so knowledgeable it was really entertaining. My twins weren’t very well on the day unfortunately so only one of them was able to take part, but he really perked up when he got to hold the animals.
Thanks again, would love to book you again next time we have a party.
Party, Thornton, May 2021

Fantastic workshop with lots of interesting information. The Children absolutely loved seeing and holding the animals. They were so excited and engaged. Thank you so much. We hope to see you again in the future.
Infant School, Bebington, February 2020

An amazing and eye opening workshop. Every child was enthralled by the animals and learnt so much information. It was pitched perfectly for their age and all the Children loved how interactive it was. Pre used Animals Take Over before and will continue to do so! Thank you so much. They learnt things I could never have taught/known.
