Ventura Events offers some of the most professional and enjoyable animal encounters in the UK, but you don’t have to take our word for it! Here’s what some of our past clients have said:
Animal Encounter Parties:
Thank you for arranging such a great party for Nathan. He really loved meeting the animals as did all his friends – from a 1 year old up to 7 year old – not many parties cover that age gap (not even including all the adults who got up close and personal with the animals too!). Thank you once again.
Mrs Cooper – Enfield, Middlesex.
Absolutely brilliant, I think I enjoyed it even more than the kids if that’s possible. Would recommend Ventura to anyone”
Mr James – Watford, Hertfordshire.
What a fantastic party, and we especially loved Ace the Skunk. My daughters loved it and their friends were speaking about the party for the whole week at school. Hope to have you back next year.
Mrs Kelly – Chelmsford, Essex.
We were absolutely delighted with our presenter and your lovely ‘wild critters’. I would gladly recommend Ventura Events to anybody. Thank you for making our granddaughters day so special.
Brigitte Watkins – Colchester, Essex.
Thank you for coming to Sophie’s party, we all loved meeting the animals and learning such a lot about them. It was great!
Suzanne Cochrane - London.
Great fun for the twins and all their friends. An excellent birthday with a huge selection of friendly exotic animals at a great price. Would certainly use Ventura Events again.
Mrs Donovan – Luton, Bedfordshire.
Everyone loved it, you added the finishing touches to an excellent summers garden party. Thanks for everything.
Mr Lockhart – St Albans, Hertfordshire.
Thank you so much for such an excellent birthday party with the Ventura animals. My son absolutely loved every minute of it, especially the snakes and lizards. It was great to see all the parents seemed enjoy it as much as the children!”
Miss Davey – Windsor, Berkshire.
Nursery & School Animal Encounters:
From the moment of booking the visit Ventura Events have been so helpful and informative. The visit was tailored to our topic this term ‘monsters’. The children where so excited about the visit and Ashley worked well with the reception children and the terrified teachers! I would defiantly recommend a visit from Ventura to enhance and bring alive a animal based topic. We will get inspiring work out of this morning for weeks!
Holly Dabbs – St James Church of England Primary School, Bermondsey, London.
All the foundation stage children and staff at Bannockburn Primary School loved meeting all the animals during their ‘Animal Encounter’. The presentation supported our learning around the book ‘Mr Magnolia’ by Quentin Blake and it gave our children a fantastic real life experience of the different animals that appear.
Gemma Faircloth – Bannockburn Primary School, Plumstead, london.
We have booked Ventura Events at our school summer fair for the past 2 years and have been very impressed with their professionalism, energy and knowledge of the animals. The children always love the interaction with the animals and we feel confident leaving the Ventura staff to manage the sessions with minimal involvement from us. The animal encounters are a real draw to events such as ours.
Alan Cowan – Fleetville Infant and Junior School, St Albans, Hertfordshire.
The Reception children at Lavender School were amazed by their ‘Animal Encounter.’ The variety of animals was brilliant and the fact that every child was able to touch, stroke or hold the animals made it a truly hands on experience for them. They learnt so much from the presentation, which was pitched just at the right level for their age and understanding. We will definitely be inviting Ventura Events back for further encounters and would highly recommend them.
Mrs O’Doherty – Lavender Primary School, Enfield, Middlesex.
Thank you so much, I really appreciated you creating a teeth and diet presentation especially for us – it really put all our classroom work into perspective for the pupils. It was a great way to end our topic and all the children loved the animals and learnt a lot.
Miss Tucker – The Priory School, Hampshire.
Ashley Palmier of Ventura Events is a great support to our Tourism and Events Students at the University of Hertfordshire. As a popular guest speaker, he visits the Hertfordshire Business School to give well received lectures to final year undergraduates on both wildlife tourism and conservation, and his own experiences of business involvement and putting on events. He is able to relate well to the students who have been inspired to see what Ashley, who studied for the same degree as some of them are undertaking, has achieved with Ventura Events.
Lesley Glass – Senior Lecturer in Tourism, Hertfordshire Business School, University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, Hertfordshire.
Corporate Animal Encounters:
Ventura events were great! They provided a super day and kept the families at our club very entertained. They were extremely professional and we would highly recommend. Thank you for a great unique experience.
Jodie Theobald – Sales & Membership Manager, David Lloyd Enfield, Enfield, Middlesex.
Paradise Wildlife Park have engaged with Ventura Events on a number of occasions to deliver both on site and off site education led interactive animal sessions. We have found them to be thoroughly professional and have no hesitation in recommending Ventura Events to others.
Steve Sampson – Director, Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire.
Film & Media:
Thank you for the good job you completed in the New Forest! It was the first time I have worked with such specialist animals and you made it very easy for all of the team. It was great to learn about all the animals as well”.
Isshogai Daimyo – Professional Photographer, France.
Other Animal Encounters:
Thank you very much for your visit this Friday. The children and staff all loved it and we’ve had really great feedback from parents too!
