Celebrations in store at Redwings Aylsham

There’s no better way to kick off 2015 than with an invitation to join our Adoption Stars’ birthday parties!

Whether you received an adoption of our lovely residents as a Christmas gift, if you are a long term sponsor or maybe you just like any excuse to join a party, we welcome you all to make a special visit to Redwings Aylsham to join in our Adoption Stars’ birthday celebrations!

Entry to our parties is FREE, so don’t forget to invite your family and friends so our birthday girls and boys can have cuddles galore.

On their special day, our Adoption Stars will spend the morning enjoying an extra special groom in preparation for their birthday parade where they are presented with a scrumptious (carroty) cake, followed of course by lots of fuss from all of their wonderful fans!

Each of our birthday stars will also be the subject of their very own party quiz. Visitors can follow the quiz trail around our stables and paddocks, finding out all about our birthday boy or girl, as well as meeting all their horsey and donkey friends along the way.

After all that you’ll no doubt be feeling in need of refreshment, so be sure to relax in our café and refuel with some of the scrumptious treats we have on offer!

This year, our star residents will be celebrating their birthdays with parties on the following dates:

On Sunday 17th May beautiful Maya invites you to her first ever party as an Adoption Star!

On Sunday 14th June Wiggins and Wacko celebrate turning 11 with a double party!

On Sunday 19th July it’ll be bumper fun when our Shetland troop ‘The Gangsters’ welcome you to join their festivities!

Finally, on Sunday 30th August Gulliver will be hosting his ninth birthday party, and would love you to come along!

For more information on our Adoption Stars’ birthday parties, please enquire at the centre, call our visitor helpline on 0870 040 0033 or email
