Redwings Aylsham will be open every Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10am to 4pm during the school holidays with different themes running throughout the summer to help us make the most of our wonderful variety of equine residents. These include:
1st – 14th August: We Love Donkeys! Who can resist these beautiful long-eared creatures?! Not to mention donkey duo Wiggins and Wacko!
15th August – 4th September: We Love Horses! Our impressive larger residents take centre stage for the final three weeks, so come along to meet beautiful Maya and handsome Gulliver!
Each day we will be offering themed activities including hands-on grooming sessions, quizzes, creative crafts, demonstrations and guided tours, so download the week-by-week activity schedules to plan your summer holidays trip here.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we are also delighted to be launching our Redwings Aylsham Summer Club for children aged 5-16! The club will run every Friday during the summer holidays and offers a hands on, behind-the-scenes look at how we care for our Redwings’ residents. Although these fun sessions are recommended for children, the whole family is welcome to join in! To download more information about our Summer Club click here.
