Animal Activities Licence Number: 19/AE/CWAC/004Welcome To Our Animal Parties And School Workshops Website
Animals Take Over offers fun and educational animal handling workshops and exciting animal parties which are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Based in Cheshire, North West England, we have a special selection of animals that Children can touch and hold, whilst learning lots of fascinating facts about each and every one of them. We currently carry out workshops & parties throughout Cheshire, Liverpool, Merseyside, Wirral, Warrington, Manchester and North Wales.
Our School workshops are linked to the national curriculum and include topics such as Nocturnal animals, Rainforest, Minibeasts, Habitats, Classification & Lifecycles. We also carry out sessions at Libraries, Nurseries, Children Centres and Play schemes. Check out our School workshops page to find out more!
If it’s a party you are looking for, we have four fantastic animal parties to choose from, a Cute & Fluffy Party, a Creepy Crawly Party, a Totally Exotic Party and our unique Pick & Mix Party where you can choose the animals that your guests would love to meet! Click the links on the Parties page to find out more about each animal party package.
We hope you are all enjoying the summer holidays! We are carrying out lots of workshops for School holiday clubs and Children’s Centres!. Animals Take Over has now been issued with our new Animal Activities Licence Number: 19/AE/CWAC/004 Companies should not be operating without their own licence number!! Always check that the company you are considering booking has this licence. They have to provide it if you ask. If they dont or wont provide it, then you should re-consider and book a reputable company who can provide you with the licence number.
New legislation was introduced in October 2018, which means that anyone carrying out Animal Handling Workshops must now be fully licensed. From 1st April 2019 this new legislation must be enforced by all councils in England. My premises were inspected on Monday 15th April by the council and they were extremely happy with how my animals are kept and cared for. After updating all my policies and procedures to meet the councils new requirements, I have now been issued with a 3 year licence. If you are looking to book any Animal Handling Company, make sure they have their new Animal Activities Licence Number. If they have an Animal Activities Licence Number it should be clearly shown on their website as part of the new legislation.
The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018
Some exciting topics the animals have been linking in with include the Owl babies story, Classification, Identifying animals and Pets! We have many different topics to choose from for your class, check out the School Workshops page for more details, if you can’t find the workshop that fits your topic, the Pick and Mix is a great option, you can choose any 8 animals for the children to meet!
All workshops are carried out by myself, check out my testimonials on the testimonials page. When booking a School workshop with any company, make sure you know who will be carrying out the workshop on the day, that they have the new animal activities licence, risk assessments and public liability insurance and ensure you know what animals they will be bringing to visit. This hopefully should ensure your visit is a good experience for everyone involved.

Care Home, Northwich, April 2019
Excellent workshop! Lyndsay presented relevant, interesting facts and used scientific vocabulary to describe and classify each animal. The Children loved it and it definitely brought their learning to life. Thank You
Primary School, Edgeley, March 2019
The sessions were fantastic. Our pupils learned so much about the different types of animals and being able to handle them was a real treat. They will be talking about their favourite animals for weeks.
