The best way to contact Guy is via email. You can then easily discuss dates and quickly sort out a booking. Otherwise, leave your message and contact details on the answer phone. If you haven't recieved an email reply from Guy within 48 hours, check your spam folder and if necessary, add to your safe senders list.


When arranging a booking by e-mail or telephone, please have a number of alternative times and dates. Guy will only reserve a provisional booking for three working days. Once you have confirmed a booking we will then send you, by email, a written confirmation and payment information.




It is intended that all of the workshops are not only amongst the best in the field but also fully insured and competitively priced. Telephone: 07758089017 or e-mail: for current prices and to discuss your requirements.


As a guide, a 1 hour school session costs just £125. A half day (2 sessions) costs just £175 and a full day (4 sessions) costs £225. One hour birthday parties and group sessions (scouts, brownies etc.) start at £100 per hour.


Terms and ConditionsPayment terms: Schools/Museums/Events - payment by cheque or bank transfer. Settlement of payment: no later than 30 days on completion of the workshop. Please note that we will send you an invoice with the confirmation when you book the workshop. Private bookings must be paid for in advance. Contact Guy to discuss a suitable payment method.


Children's parties: Although the party sessions are entertaining for all ages, Guy does not class himself as a 'party entertainer' and the one hour workshop is aimed at education. During the session we require quiet and expect good behaviour from your guests. This means any loud music must be turned off during the session and this includes any additional entertainment such as bouncy castles! No balloons, food or drink are allowed near the animals and children under 5 must be on an adult's lap or closely supervised throughout. We need to create a calm and quiet environment for the animals as their welfare is paramount. Payment is usually by cash on the day but other methods are available so please ask.


Timing: Guy will arrive at your school/event around 30 minutes before the start time. This early start is necessary in order to give him adequate time to set up the workshop, heat the room if necessary, check the animals and settle them in. Workshop sessions are designed to last one full hour.


Heating: Please remember that the animals used are tropical and must be kept warm. During the winter months normal school heating levels are usually perfectly adequate but if needs be Guy has fan heaters to boost the room temperature.


Parking: There are many boxes to unload and carry and it is essential that parking outside the booked location is available on the day.


Severe weather warnings: Snow: Guy cannot take the chance of taking tropical animals out in snow or blizzard conditions. If the vehicle should break down he would lose all of the animals. Please remember that the health and safety of the animals is a paramount consideration. In such a scenario Guy will do all he can to rearrange the booking to your satisfaction.


Cancellation: you may cancel a booking, with no penalty, up to three weeks before the date booked. After that you pay for the day. To cancel Guy must have it in writing and he will confirm the cancellation in writing also. No written cancellation means that the booking has not been cancelled.
