Everything about the planning, his responsiveness to special requests, having a number of calls with Leon ahead of time to make sure every part of the event was exactly the way he wanted it, the huge empathy and understanding he has for young children and animals simply make him a joy to work with.

Corner Exotics Covid 19 Policy Statement

I have started doing shows again after 4 months enforced holiday because of lock down. I had to start again through necessity in order to keep my animals fit, healthy and mentally stimulated, (same goes for me !!) They are used to being handled by thousands of people a year and I've always thought that it's unfair on an animal to radically change it's routines if they are good and healthy ones.

If you've seen one of my shows you'll know they are the polar opposite of 'social distancing'. My shows are intentionally up close and personal, hands on, real and in your face. My belief has always been that if you can't touch the animals you're missing out on 90% of the experience, you may as well be watching youtube, which incidentally is why I haven't yet done any online sessions.

By touching and holding my animals people have the chance to reconnect at a fundamental level with another species, to overcome preconceived negative ideas about the animal and dismiss perceived 'phobias'. A connection with nature, the planet, life other than human, is essential if we as a species are ever going to stop regarding the the planet as 'our dominion', an infinite resource to be destroyed and consumed by an ever increasing number of people. Deforestation, mass extinctions, climate change, plastic pollution, Covid 19, and all other zoonotic diseases are a symptom of that attitude.

None of that can be achieved by me 'social distancing'.

However, Corner Exotics does take the pandemic very seriously so the policy for shows is as follows :

Small numbers in accordance with current Government guidelines.

Shows should ideally be held outdoors or in large, well ventilated areas.

I wear a face mask at all times.

Hand washing is emphasised even more than usual.

Social distancing between guests is recommended at all times.

I hope this answers any questions you may have but if I can give you any further information please click on Contact Me and send me an email.

Thanks for visiting, Simon

THANK YOU so much for coming to Kiana’s birthday party yesterday

Just a quick note to say thanks to you (and your animals of course) for making Henry’s 4th birthday so special.

Party Animals go Stereophonic

I had the pleasure of doing a party a party for 2 girls called Misty and Xanthe in Fulham recently.

To my surprise, Misty’s dad was Kelly Jones, the owner of one of the finest voices in the music world, lead singer and guitarist of the awesome band Stereophonics and a really nice fella.

Cancellation of Contract

Cancellation of the Contract shall be as follows:
If the Booker cancels:

More than 30 days from the agreed performance date; no fee is payable.

8-30 days from the agreed performance date; 50% of the full fee must be paid

1-7 days (incl date of performance) from the performance date; the full fee is payable.

The Booker agrees that access to the venue is the Bookers responsibility and any delays are NOT the responsibility of the Entertainer.
Re-scheduling the date: Unfortunately the date booked cannot be changed as the Bookers date has been held and will still incur a financial loss to the Performer. A change of date request will be classed as a cancelation if requested within the 30day contract. However, it will also be to the Performers discretion if the date can be changed providing no other Booking opportunities have been lost.

The Booker agrees that all cancellations are to be made in writing via email and sent to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The cancellation is only valid with a reply from Simon Airey of Corner Exotics as a confirmation.
