School Workshops & Animal Parties

Meet Lyndsay
My name is Lyndsay and I set up Animals Take Over, so I could share my love of animals with children (and adults) all over the North West.
I offer a wide variety of animal handling workshops for schools throughout the week and carry out fun & exciting birthday parties at the weekends.
It’s amazing seeing the Children’s faces when they touch & hold an animal they normally would not get to meet.
I carry out School Visits throughout Cheshire, Liverpool, Manchester, Wirral and North Wales.

Animals Take Over has a wide variety of animals, ranging from Rabbits and Guinea Pigs to beautiful Barn Owls, super cute Sugar Gliders, Spiders and slithery Snakes.

Whether you want to make a lesson at school come to life or you want a kid’s party with a difference, Animals Take Over has animal handling workshops and parties to suit all ages and abilities and will make the day unforgettable.


Meet Elisabeth (Picture coming soon!)
Elisabeth joined the Animals Take Over team in January 2022! Her main role is to carry out parties at the weekend and when she is not studying. She loves animals and has proved to be an invaluable member of the team!

Before joining Animals Take Over, Elisabeth worked at Monkey World and Chester Zoo with her favourite animal, Chimps! I am sure if you have a question about Chimps she would love to answer them for you!

She has a BSc in Animal Science and is currently studying Veterinary Nursing so I know the animals are definitely in good hands when out with her at the weekend.


The animals used in the shows are chosen specifically because of their kind and friendly nature. Animal Take Over have Up to date DBS checks, Public Liability Insurance & Risk Assessments. These are all available at your request. We have many years’ experience working with: animals, young children and students, alongside a history of animal related qualifications!

Animals Take Over can currently cover a radius of 30 miles from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. Enquiries further away than this are sometimes possible but are dependant on a number of factors, such as length of travel time, distance and cost.
