The spirit of Halloween has arrived at Monkey Haven, enjoy the escapades of the primates as they play with their pumpkins, meet the minibeasts and say hello to Oakley, the latest rescue.

Looking for some fun this half term then join Monkey Haven for some Halloween goings on! The primate rescue centre will be getting into the spirit of Halloween from the 16th-31st October and they'd love for you to join them!  There will be lots going on, including a kids ghost hunt treat trail and the opportunity to meet the minibeasts, rescue snakes and spiders!   Plus join them at noon on the following dates and help  celebrate some very special birthdays. The primates love a sing-song and it's great fun watching them open their presents!

  • Capuchin, Lin  -  23/10
  • Siamang, Bog -  28/10
  • Müellers gibbon, Bono -  30/10
  • Capuchin, Pumpkins 1st birthday -  31/10

The award-winning keeper talks run throughout the day and you'll be able to watch the monkeys and meerkats delve for treats in the pumpkins. You can also get up close to some rescue owls.  Although owls are associated with Halloween they are not scary at all and you can find out more about the wonderful birds of prey we care for at the sanctuary, including little Oakley, their latest rescue.

There will be tasty treats in the tea room and remember to take advantage of the free seven day return for double the fun!

Happy Halloween and they hope to see you soon!
