Where have the summer holidays gone? Is it my imagination or are they shrinking? As well as being the Bank Holiday weekend, for most of us this weekend (26-28 Aug) will be the last one before school goes back. So why not come and see us at the Face Painting cabin at Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, Herts, and go a bit wild. Take your inspiration from the animals and let us transform you in to a silver leopard, lion king, tiger, butterfly or bird.
We’re opposite the lemurs, from 11am every day – see you there!

Look forward to seeing you there! – Juliet
Team Juliet is in training for school holidays
It’s only a matter of days now before school’s out for the summer, so I’ve been busy lining up a top team of face-painters at Paradise Wildlife Park for the holidays. Nams, Philly, Kate, Zoe, Heather, Brierley and Linda will all be taking turns to paint with me over the next couple of months, each one bringing their own style and expertise.
So do remember to bring your loyalty card if you’ve got one, and to ask for one if you haven’t. Eight signed boxes earn you a free face-paint!
You’ll find us in my face-painting cabin, opposite the lemurs. See you there…
Take Dad for a walk on the wild side this Father’s Day – Sunday 19 June
To celebrate Father’s Day in my face-painting cabin at Paradise Wildlife Park, we’re giving Dads a free face-paint with every paid-for child. So how brave are you really, chaps?
The lion-hearted will find us by the lemurs!
Warm to the wildlife at Paradise park
I try to keep the temperature tropical in my face-painting cabin at Paradise Wildlife Park, so drop in this half-term to get an exotic new holiday look without leaving home. We’re here every day – next door to the lemurs.
See you there!
Dream Team in Paradise
I’m going to be painting at Paradise Wildlife Park all this Bank Holiday Weekend (April 30, May 1-2) – and I’ll have a dream team: on Saturday, wonderful Zoe Thornbury-Phillips will be painting with me; on Sunday and Monday, my fabulous daughter, Philly Eve Walker.
Plus, on Saturday and Monday, photographer John Brough will be there making on-the-spot prints, like the one here. To see more of John’s work, check out Alternative-Portraits Photography on Facebook.
On-the-spot animal prints
John Brough of Alternative-Portraits makes a welcome return to Paradise Wildlife Park this week, on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (12, 14 & 15 April). He’ll be at my face-painting cabin to take your photo and make prints for you on the spot, with a choice of fantastic jungly backgrounds to complement your new persona as a tropical butterfly or a big cat.

Dates for school holidays vary depending on where you live – and around Hertfordshire, that means another 10 whole days of fun. So why not come and visit us at Paradise Wildlife Park, where I’ll be painting naughty monkeys, terrifying tigers, birds and butterflies every day up to and including Sunday 17 April.
You’ll find us opposite the lemurs, from 12 noon. See you there!
I’ll be painting at Paradise Wildlife Park with Team Juliet over Easter – 25–28 March – and then every day during the school holidays, 2–17 April.
I’m opposite the lemurs – just follow the bunnies and spring chickens!
