Explore the lives of animals

Children are curious by nature, especially when they watch animals in action. How about organising a workshop to help them understand how reptiles, insects and small animals live?

About Us

We (Luke and Kayleigh) met while both volunteering at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust in 2008. We got married in 2009. Our daughters, Lily as well as Bluebell, love helping us with the animals and our sons, Noah and Nehemiah love exploring the animals.

We have national diplomas in Animal Management and we have worked with a wide range of animals and all age groups of people. Luke has 3 years’ experience working for the largest animal roadshow company in the UK. We both love animals and love sharing our passion and knowledge for them. We started Quirks Animal Roadshows (QAR) in May 2011. We recognise that it's tough starting a business while the country experiences a recession, but we are determined to keep QAR on the road to success.

Photography Services

Started as an addition to our fete work, we have teamed up with a professional photographer to offer people a chance to have a professional photograph taken while holding an animal from our collection, selected by you. This can now also be set up separately from Quirks Animal Roadshows fete work, and will have the photographer’s personal favourite selection of animals available to be used.

What our customers have to say

Martin Sutton

Fantastic for our school students. Luke is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his animals. He has a great rapport with the students and is keen to deliver exactly what we need. The shows add enrichment to our curriculum and the students are always excited about them. Prices are very reasonable and Luke is flexible on timings and logistics. Thank you so much for your recent visits. See you next year."

Last Wednesday, we saw the Roadshow at the Wolf Trust. My 10-year old son was so impressed - he held a snake, tarantula, bearded dragon and lizard. The whole family had a great time and Luke and his little daughter were really helpful and made our experience perfect. Thank you! 

Toya Anderson 

Spent some time with you guys today at the Wolf conservation trust. We all had a great time getting to hold all the different animals especially the snakes
