Animal Encounters for Parties, Events & Special Occasions

Animals enthral young and old alike and can make a special occasion or event even more memorable. We can provide an exciting animal encounter for any event, any group, at any time. Whether it be indoors or outdoors, Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, we’ll do our best to deliver all year round fun anywhere in Cornwall.

What can we offer:

  • Birthday parties/Anniversaries – suitable for all ages  (NB: Reduced availability for 2021)
  • Weddings/Handfastings/Blessings

  • Conferences
  • Corporate entertainment



Our animal encounters and parties can be tailored to your needs and we are always happy to accommodate all requests, provided animal welfare is not compromised.

Please get in touch to discuss your requirements and we’ll do our very best to help. When making an enquiry please provide as much information as you can, i.e. date, location, age group (for parties), numbers attending, how long you would want us for – this will enable us to give you an accurate idea of the cost for our services. NB : We do not have a price list as there are far too many variables. 

NB: Weddings – we can supply owls as ring bearers, but we do not offer any flying services (far too much to go wrong!).

We are fully insured, licensed and hold all the relevant risk assessments and DBS checks.

Recent reviews from clients to whom we have provided an animal encounter:

What a beautiful day we had today with Talons and the beautiful owls and hedgehogs. A present for my mum and she was delighted… the owls were stunning and so well looked after, all with different characters. And the hogs were stunning and very very cute! 
I can highly recommend these guys! 
Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon!!

I can’t thank Talons enough for coming to my daughters 5th birthday party today! They were amazing, the selection of animals that came was fantastic and all the children loved it! Would definitely recommend to anyone! If your looking for something a bit different for a kids party this is highly recommended! 

K Goldsworthy

I can not rate these amazing people and animals enough. My son had an amazing party and even with a room of hyped up children they all listened and respected them! Everyone loved touching and holding the animals even the adults! Best entertainment I’ve ever seen at a party!!

N Morford

We held a family party yesterday as a late Christmas present. It was outstanding, and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The range of animals/reptiles were brilliant. It was fun and informative and highly recommended. The only problem we have now…..My daughter wants a giant rabbit!!! Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon.
