What the experience entails
In a group of 5 participants, they will be assigned to one of our experienced friendly keepers, who will be the host throughout the experience. Once they have been kitted out in a special keeper top and cap, they’ll get to try their hand at a number of essential duties.
The experience will last 3 ½ hours and runs on weekdays in the February, Easter, spring, summer and October school holidays. The experience will start at 9.15am, and finish at 1pm. Morning refreshments are included.
Please note: We ask that a parent or guardian accompanies the participant throughout the experience. The accompanying adult will not be able to partake in the experience or access any behind the scenes areas but will be kept busy with lots of great photo opportunities.
