It’s a summer of family fun at Redwings Oxhill!
There are more reasons than ever to visit Redwings Oxhill this summer as we invite you to take part in our special themed activities celebrating our wonderfully diverse rescued residents, and with free entry and parking, one trip simply won’t be enough!
1st – 14th August: We Love Donkeys! Who can resist these beautiful long-eared creatures like irresistibly fluffy Arya, Merlin and Adel!
15th August – 4th September: We Love Horses! Our impressive larger residents take centre stage for the final three weeks, so come along to meet gentle giants Nesbitt, Sully and Major!
Each day the centre will be offering quiz trails, creative crafts, fascinating demonstrations and guided tours, plus hands-on grooming sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Download our handy week-by-week activity schedule here to help you plan your trip!
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we are also delighted to be launching our Oxhill Summer Club for children aged 5-16! The club will run every Wednesday 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! Find out more about our Summer Club here.
And finally, don’t forget three extra special dates this summer as we celebrate three Adoption Star birthdays:
Sunday 9th August will be party time for gorgeous young donkeys Timothy and Cain.
Sunday 30th August will see us celebrating lovely Welsh pony Dylan’s 14th birthday!
Our Adoption birthday parties are completely free to attend and everyone is invited to enjoy the festivities as our stars take centre stage for the day!
So whether you’re a regular visitor or planning your first trip, there’s sure to be something for everyone over the coming weeks. And with free entry and free parking it couldn’t be easier to make a date with Redwings Oxhill this summer!
