Where We Work

Meet The Beasts travels throughout the UK.


How We Help You

We enable you to encounter our safe, friendly snakes, lizards & minibeasts so that you can experience  the thrill of being released from the grip of fears & phobias.

We adapt our input & style to each audience & your needs. We love hearing, "I never thought I could do that!" & seeing lives changed at our events.


In primary & secondary schools our snakes, lizards & minibeasts amaze, challenge & educate enthusiastic, but not always willing, audience members. Our calm, patient & engaging style really encourages close-up, hands-on encounters that everyone enjoys & understands. We can spice up your science topics to help children & young people overcome their fears, grow in confidence & discover their 'brilliant'. Our educational visits are more than simply about learning: they are about experiencing & changing.

"The difference between Meet The Beasts & other companies we've had is that you bond immediately with the children, relate on their level, hold their interest & leave them buzzing with a sense of achievement. We will be asking you back!"

In business interaction with our animals helps participants overcome their fears & build confidence. Our snakes & spiders also act as practical, visceral examples during our sessions on how to improve work culture & performance by reducing fear.We love to be part of your team-building events too. Geoff, our large, super-friendly boa constrictor wins fans wherever he goes.

"I certainly didn’t think for one minute that I’d be able to handle a snake, but it was a really enjoyable experience and thank you for the opportunity."

In healthcare settings we support mental health practitioners by providing animal assisted therapy which stimulates interest, interaction & learning. Meeting our snakes, lizards & minibeasts also boosts confidence & self-esteem by helping participants overcome their fears.

"The event was a huge success and enjoyed by all. Feedback from service users included, "It was great!", "I really enjoyed it" and "When can we do it again?" ... The hospital will be inviting Stuart back in the New Year."

Conferences, events & exhibitions love us because we draw a crowd as Geoff The BoaTM steals the scene with his friendly, gentle demeanour & strong presence. Delegates & attendees gain the added bonus of opportunity to overcome their fears, refocus & recharge whilst taking a break & enjoying something very different.

"Hi Stuart, Thanks so much for your session – everyone absolutely loved the session! I will definitely keep you in mind for any future events we have!"

Public & Community organisations & at public attractions regularly ask us back because we draw crowds & create a buzz, keep people engaged & create a sense of achievement. Our patience & calm nature always encourages even the most timid to have a go.

"You have made such a difference at the GCR today. People all over are talking about you & your animals. Every time I came in you were helping someone. You are on our list of 'must haves' for future events we run, if you'd like to come that is!"
