Families are invited to join VICTA for a day full of hands-on animal encounters and family fun.

We are visiting Herrings Green Activity Farm and Bird of Prey Centre in Bedfordshire, home to one of the UK’s largest collections of birds of prey with over 200 birds on display!

There will be plenty of opportunity to interact with the birds and animals. Activities will include: handling and flying owls, petting guinea pigs and giant rabbits, meeting and handling different species of snakes, creepy crawlies and mammals, and stroking and grooming donkeys.

We will be enjoying a picnic lunch together so families will be asked to bring their own packed lunches.

This is a great chance to meet other families, while the children are able to get up-close with the various animals. To apply for your place, please complete the online form below before 5 March 2018.
