Join us for fluffy donkey Arya’s 5th birthday party!

Special part-bred Poitou donkey Arya will be celebrating her 5th birthday this July with her very own birthday party at Redwings Oxhill, and everyone is invited to join in the fun!

From 11.30am on Sunday 14th July, you’ll be able to watch Arya enjoy a pampering birthday groom before treating her to plenty of cuddles during her parade when she’ll also get to tuck into her very own delicious cake. There will be an array of party games, and mascot Wings will be making a special appearance, too!

View Arya’s full birthday party schedule here.

Just like Arya Stark, the character from the fantasy series Game of Thrones that she’s named after, this lovely donkey has overcome heartbreak after her mum Millie sadly passed away from severe lameness when Arya was just a few months old. But thanks to plenty of TLC from her carers, Arya has grown up to become a happy and cheeky donkey!

Once the party is over, why not take a stroll around the rest of the visitor centre to meet some of the other 90 rescued horses, ponies and donkeys, who would also love a cuddle?

There’s also tasty snacks and refreshing drinks to enjoy in our café, plus an on-site gift shop full of souvenirs for you to take home and treasure with all proceeds going towards caring for our residents.

We hope you can join us!
