Adult Keeper Experience

New Forest Wildlife Park
From: 01 May '18 10:00am -
To: 03 Jan '19 04:00pm

Roll up your sleeves, put on your boots, get your hands dirty and join our animal keepers at New Forest Wildlife Park for an hour, 2 hours, or a half or full day.

We’ll be happy to vary your Keeper Experience, depending on the time you want to spend with us and your individual interests.

If you’re mad about otters, help to get their food ready and watch them squeak with excitement as you feed them their dinner. Or would you prefer to feed the deer?

With food preparation, feeding times, animal enrichment activities and general animal care, a Keeper Experience will give you first-hand experience of what it’s like to be a keeper and how things work behind the scenes.

Throughout your Keeper Experience you will be accompanied by one of our knowledgeable and friendly animal keepers, who will ensure you have an exciting and enjoyable time.

A Keeper Experience is the perfect way to say thank you to a loved one, for a birthday, anniversary or celebration, or for a gift with a difference. So contact us to find out more and we’ll do our best to make your Keeper Experience special.

Keeper days are available all year round.

Wildlife Keeper Experiences are available all year round.

Each unique experience is one-to-one with an experienced, friendly Wildlife Keeper.

The Marlands Shopping Centre
From: 28 Jul '18 10:00am -
To: 29 Jan '20 04:30pm

As a centre we are aim is to help the community we serve in anyway possible. Management and retailers have recently undertaken an amazing awareness training session by a Dementia Friends Champion to help us understand some of the challenges faced by people who are living with dementia, autism or other sensory issues whilst shopping with us. 

With this in mind we have introduced Sensory Sundays every last Sunday in each month. 

These changes  we have introduced such as requesting the stores reduce the volume of their music and security/cleaning staff to be available to assist wherever possible. We really hope that this will help make a difference and be more inclusive. Very much like to involve our community as a focus group, to feedback any of the issues they find which makes shopping a challenge. If you would like to be involved in this please contact us for more information. 

This will be every Sunday throughout the year!

The planetarium presents an unforgettable experience. The 360° cinema screen completely surrounds the audience, placing everyone right in the action. Relax back in your seat and get sucked into a black hole, fly through the Solar System or take a flight in a cardboard rocket.

We offer two show formats: the fulldome film or live, presenter-led shows.

We offer three show environments: quiet shows, chatterbox shows and autism-friendly shows.

Make your family’s Christmas magical and join us at Marwell for our Enchanted Christmas. Watch out for some exciting updates for this event.

“Having participated in a large number of Christmas events at various places with the grandchildren I can honestly say that the Marwell Christmas event surpassed any of the others. The group sizes were just right and all the children seemed to enjoy the story time and plate painting. Everything was arranged beautifully. The gift was excellent quality too. This was 1.5 hours well spent and we will definitely go again. Plenty of time after for a meal in the restaurant and visit to the animals. Well worth the money.” ~ SueN280 on Trip Advisor

Christmas at Beaulieu

Beaulieu
From: 23 Nov '18 04:45pm -
To: 24 Dec '18 10:00pm

Experience the new magical, after-dark, illuminated trail through the grounds and gardens of the Beaulieu visitor attraction this Christmas.

On selected dates between 23 November - 30 December, the tree-tops will glisten as the gardens and buildings shimmer with seasonal sparkle. There’s something for everyone as a one mile illuminated path winds its way through the grounds in a magical after dark experience. Greeted by the sights and sounds of Christmas, wander beneath unique tree canopies drenched in seasonal colour.

A FESTIVE OUTDOOR WALK FOR ALL THE FAMILY...

SCENTED FIRE GARDEN

Explore the stunningly lit ruins of the medieval Beaulieu Abbey before pausing at the flickering flames of the scented Fire Garden Cloister for a moment of reflection.

Christmas at Beaulieu. Beaulieu Abbey illuminations

TUNNEL OF LIGHT

Perhaps leave a special Christmas Wish at the Wishing Tree before you continue through the Tunnel of Light festooned by a canopy of over 100,000 twinkling pea-lights.

PALACE HOUSE PANORAMA

Surrounded by sparkling hedges, follow the path towards the Palace House Panorama. The grand country house, home to the Montagu family for centuries, is brought to life by beams of light that dance in time to much-loved Christmas classics.

FATHER CHRISTMAS

Amid all the fun don’t forget to glimpse Father Christmas and his elves as they greet you from the roof of Beaulieu’s veteran bus.

Christmas at Beaulieu illuminations. Father Christmas waves from the Veteran Bus

ICICLE WALK

Along the Icicle Walk, larger-than-life gleaming shards guide you towards the Meadow of Light where thousands of fibre optic heads sway in unison. There are hidden surprises too – watch out for frosty snowflakes, shimmering stars and gigantic baubles where you least expect them.

Christmas at Beaulieu illuminations. Icicle Walk

SINGING TREES

As you wander beneath playful ribbons of colour-changing lights, the mesmerising voices of Singing Trees can be heard in the distance. Rising high into the night sky this festive finale is a cheerful Christmas blast of colour and light.

SEASONAL FOODS & GIFTS

Complete your stroll under the stars with spiced cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst the aroma of roasting chestnuts fills the air. Gather to toast your own marshmallows at one of the fire pits, ride the vintage Carousel* or Ferris Wheel and enjoy other traditional fare before picking up a gift or two at Beaulieu’s shop.
