Essex Reptile Encounter - Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd August

Reptiles and amphibians are sometimes thought of as primitive, dull and dimwitted. In fact, of course, they can be lethally fast, spectacularly beautiful, surprisingly affectionate and very sophisticated. – Sir David Frederick Attenborough

Essex Reptile Encounters will be bringing a number of reptiles for the children to handle, with parents able to take pictures.

There will also be fun reptile-based worksheets, drawing and colouring for the children.

A parent or guardian must be in attendance for the duration to be responsible for their child. 
Essex Reptile Encounters are a family run business, with over 40 years experience, that provide a unique educational reptile experience that is factual, interactive and fun.

  •   Just returned from yet another visit to the theatre. Great show with a Shakin Stevens impersonator. Rebel not only looked like shaky but sounded like him.
