About Us

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.

WOW! It is true what they say about time flying when you are having fun! I can not believe we are almost in May!

A lot has been happening this last few weeks. We have recently (20th April) had our inspection by the council which went really well and are currently awaiting our new License number.

Elisabeth has been amazing taking the animals out to parties so I can keep on top of all the animal care stuff back at home! (Find out more about Elisabeth on our About us page!)

We have a few new animals, Monty the Royal Python who is proving very popular, Princess the Bearded Dragon and my new best friend Toffee who is a our almost 7 month old Pup. These are not on the website yet for selection however you may spot them popping up when Wilfred our original python is in need of a break or if Otto our Bearded Dragon is having an off day!
Toffee is our Collie, he is working hard on over coming some issues with the car and travelling but has met some children at few nurseries and a Brownie group too where he was a big hit! (Keep your eyes peeled for some pics)

May is completely booked up now for both School Workshops and Parties. We can not wait to meet you all and introduce you all to our amazing animals!

We have made a few changes to the lists of animals on the party pages and prices of parties due to the ever rising costs of keeping such a large number of animals and travel costs too!

If you would like to make a booking for your School or book a birthday party, send us a contact form message or email animalstakeover@yahoo.co.uk and we will reply as soon as we can!

We are going to be streamlining our booking system! Due to the large number of enquiries we are getting daily from Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Text, email, enquiry forms and Instagram, we will not be able to complete bookings unless it is through email or enquiry forms which link directly to our email. This is because it is more difficult to keep track of information on Messenger/Whatsapp/Text and Insta and we don’t want to miss anything or lose information!

We are really looking forward to seeing you all over the next few months

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.
Primary School, Heswall, January 2020
