Animals On The Move

We are experts at taking our animals, both large and small, to schools, nurseries, birthday parties, fairs, events and anywhere else. We offer three main packages but we can tailor any visit to your particular requirements.

We will provide

  • A range of friendly animals
  • All animal-related equipment
  • Removal of all animal waste
  • Thorough disinfect of the animal area
  • A gazebo for shelter if necessary
  • DBS checked staff
  • Appropriate risk assessment
  • £5 million public liability insurance

"Booked the mobile farm for a school fundraising event. The staff were fab, the animals were friendly and looked very healthy and happy. The animal welfare was obviously paramount to the staff and the children (and parents) thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see, touch and hold the animals they brought along. Highly recommend! Thank you!" -- 5/5 Stars, J.P. Facebook review

Animals In The Classroom

Designed as a 'Show & Tell' but also great for small birthday parties. We will bring up to 3 different small animals in pet carriers and one member of staff will deliver classroom sessions on chosen topics and answer questions. A great way to strengthen knowledge taught in the curriculum, by discussing topics such as classfications, adaptations & habitats, life cycles, sexual dimorphism, food production and many more using the animals as a teaching aid. For birthday parties we will focus on the animal handling rather than the education element of this offer. 

£145 for 1 hour, £55 for each additional hour.

  

Small Animals Out

We will bring guinea-pigs, rabbits, chickens and ducks and whenever possible chicks and ducklings. Please enquire for other small animals. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide a chance to meet and pet the animals. This is ideal for large birthday parties, small events, school fairs and much more.

£330 for a minimum of 2 hours, £40 for each additional hour.

 

Large Animals Out

We will bring all animals from the Small Animals Out as well as sheep & goats and whenever possible lambs & kids. Please enquire about booking alpacas or donkeys as their travel needs are different and need to be discussed with the team. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide a chance to meet and pet the animals and answer questions. This is ideal for large events, school fairs, street parties, festivals and much more.

*Please be aware that for out of season hire (outside May, June, July), there is an additional cost of £200 to the large animal package.

£550 for a minimum of 2 hours, £50 for each additional hour.

 

Please be aware that bookings need to be within a 20 miles radius. 

Prices are for bookings within 5 miles from the farm. £30 extra travel cost applies outside this radius. 

"We are so grateful for the enthusiasm, hard work, energy and good spirits that you brought to Bermondsey Carnival and made the event such a success. The event broke all previous audience figures, with an estimated 12,000 people attending over the day, which is amazing! Thanks so much for your hard work." -- H. C. Email feedback

All we need from you is

  • Hand-washing facilities adjacent to our pitch (mobile sinks can be provided for an additional cost of £50)
  • A water supply (outside tap nearby or hose)
  • Parking space near where the animals will be
  • Adults and/or teachers to supervise children and manage behaviour
  • Confirmation of no other livestock present

We do not charge for the time spent setting up, clearing away or travelling so that the time you pay for is direct animal contact time! We can tailor any visit to meet your group’s needs.

Please Contact Us to discuss a booking.

Events with tailored elements

Whatever event you’re running, Vauxhall City Farm can be a great addition. We offer more than just a petting zoo, we can provide a tailored experience focusing on education for all ages.

Each event is unique so please contact us to discuss your requirements, but here are some of the things we have offered in the past: 

  • Meet & feed the animals – Families love feeding our alpacas, goats and sheep. We can bring along feed for the animals either for a charge to the event organised to be given out for free, or to be sold by us. 
  • Hatching Live – A unique and unforgettable opportunity for visitors to watch chicks and ducklings hatching and taking their first steps. (restricted to March - September)
  • Family challenges – Families work together to complete a series of creative games, crafts and activities around the theme of animal care, collecting stamps and receiving a beautiful rosette to award their achievement.
  • Crafts – Face painting, colouring tables, story book corners, animal photo-ops and a range of other activities and crafts for visitors to have a go.

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note after visiting the Lambeth Country Fair today with my 19 month old daughter and 6 year old niece. It was a hot busy day and your staff and volunteers were all unfailingly calm, happy and helpful. It was a real pleasure to be in the farm area and our girls loved it. I particularly noticed how sensitive people were to children who had been queuing a while - and to my little one who loves the idea of animals but isn’t quite ready to stroke them yet. Thank you for a lovely experience" -- C.S.
