Swan Centre Safari

Hop on board the Swan Centre Safari!

Join us on Saturday 29th July between 12pm-4pm for our Swan Centre Safari. We are very excited to welcome a jungle explorer and his two roaming gorillas to the Swan Centre. Before meeting our furry friends and creepy crawlies at the petting farm, why not attend the creature craft workshop, where you can create your very own animal masks and puppets! PLUS, we also have our very talented balloon modeller & facepainting for everyone - all activity is completely free!

This event is set to be a fun day out for the whole family, so put the date in your diaries and we'll see you there!
