On the Road

Animal Roadshow On the Road!

A service for event organisers which is totally D I F F E R E N T!

Leading zoologist and TV presenter James McKay is taking his long established Animal Roadshow on tour!

The Animal Roadshow was established in 1979 by James, a scientific fellow of the Zoological Society of London, and consists of many “exotic” animals – snakes, spiders, frogs, insects, lizards, etc – displayed to the public in an extremely entertaining, interesting and professional manner.

James, a TV presenter who has recently completed a 12 week series of Live ‘n’ Deadly and Deadly Days Out with Steve Backshall, is guaranteed to attract large crowds, and keep them entertained throughout the event.

Until a few years ago, The Animal Roadshow had only been seen in schools, colleges, universities and at private events, but now, through popular demand, YOU can avail yourselves of the services of this unique attraction for YOUR event.

The Animal Roadshow does not bring along mundane and ordinary animals such as goats, rabbits and guinea pigs, but rather ones not often seen by the public, such as eagles, giant snakes, giant rats, polecats, giant cockroaches, mantids, pygmy hedgehogs, tenrecs, huge tarantulas, scorpions etc.

In other words, The Animal Roadshow uses only animals that have the “ooo-aah”, the “wow” and the “urghhhhh” factors!

We give short, informative and entertaining interactive presentations at regular intervals throughout the day, and offer members of the public the opportunity to get hands-on with some of The Animal Roadshow’s weird animals.  James’ enthusiasm for his subject is truly infectious, and the audiences – no matter age or gender – will be enthralled throughout the event.

At The Animal Roadshow, we pride ourselves on the professional manner in which we run and organise our workshops and events.  Our animals are cared for in strict adherence to our own Code of Practice, which puts the welfare of our animals above the needs of the company.

The Animal Roadshow is fully insured, and holds all relevant licences and insurances, and James McKay is a trained teacher with full (enhanced) CRB clearance.
