Looking to hold that unique birthday party that people talk about and remember? Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre can help you with the Birthday Party of the year, and create memories that last a life time.
Imagine the smile that spreads across a child’s face as a Barn Owl swoops to land perfectly on a gloved fist, the whoops of laughter as an Eagle Owl glides effortlessly across a line of children and all the while learning fascinating facts about wildlife. Feathers and Fur offers all of this and more in our tailor made birthday parties.
Feathers and Furs friendly and relax approach means that each and every party is uniquely tailored to your requirements. For instance if you are looking to celebrate a young girls party then we invite our smaller beautiful Owls, for photos and fuss. Anyone with boys will know that a guest visit from the fastest bird on the planet is high on the agenda for an outstanding experience and for the older children we show them the wonderful world of Falconry, flying Hawks, Owls and Falcons to the fist. Our parties are available for ages 6 years and upwards.
When the party is booked, Feathers and Fur will send out invites for you to use along with all the details with regards to Health and Safety. We recommend that party numbers are kept to a maximum of 15 children to ensure that each child gets plenty of time to enjoy the wonderfully unique experience.
"FANTASTIC!!!! Thank you so much for an amazing Birthday Party. We all had a great time and loved meeting your beautiful birds. All of the children have come away with lots of knowledge about the birds and we have already had calls from parents saying the children haven't stopped talking since they got home! Best wishes The Creaney Family x"
The children spend 1 hour learning, handling and meeting some of our amazing team. Birds used on the day will vary on age groups however we strive to ensure that the birthday person gets to meet their favourite member of our team!
We have a number of areas to use including a seated display arena, a large field and a class room in case of poor weather. This 1 hour session includes a safety talk at the beginning and a time to wash hands once we finish.
You then have the use of our classroom, with table and chairs for 1 hour to provide a picnic, meal or simply Birthday cake. The room is heated in winter and has electricity if you wish to bring along some music.
We do offer a discount for parties held after school, 4pm -5.30pm as this means there is only time for cake. Please feel free to ask a member of our team about this option.
How long does the party last? With both handling and food, Birthday parties last 2 hours.
What is the minimum age for a party? 6 years old is our minimum age for birthday parties.
Do you provide food? No, we do not provide any of the food. A number of families have used the local pizza places in Woodley to deliver pizza. We can help source some contact details if you need help.
Can I put food in a fridge? Sorry but we currently only have a fridge for the birds food. (we wouldn’t want to serve the birds your sausage rolls and the kids a mouse or two!!)
Can I put up decorations? Yes you can hang party banners, we do ask for no balloons though as these scare the birds. Decorations must only be hung with sticky tac, NOT cello tape or pins.
Do you have somewhere to plug my music? Yes the classroom has electricity.
What if its raining or poor weather? If the weather is poor we use the class room for the birthday party, it is large and heated.
Do other parents have to stay? No, parents do not have to stay. We do however like to mention that parents are in charge of the children’s behaviour and any behaviour that may cause harm to the birds or disrupt the other children will result in that child being asked to sit out. If you are worried about managing the children alone then please ask a number of the parents to stay. The falconer’s job is not to manage the children but the birds.
What is the maximum number of children? 15 is the maximum number allowed to attend, this includes siblings.
Do you do party bags? Not yet but they are on their way!!
