Whale of a Time is proud to organise educational events at schools and engaging pupils with endangered species. We have been running events successfully at schools such as at Hawthorns School in Redhill, Surrey. We welcome participation of green or eco-schools.
Whale of a Time was the biggest family and kids attractions at the Sail Power and Watersports Show 2008 and Earl's Court Boat Show 2007 at London's Earl's Court Exhibition Centre, where hundreds of kids, parents and adults had the opportunity to explore the marine world by making models of endangered marine species whilst having a whale of a time!

We feel that itís important to engage people with environmental issues in a fun and hands-on manner. During the Whale of a Time Workshop participants explore environmental issues we're facing today and learn about the impact on endangered species and ecosystems. Clay-modelling is therapeutic and the themes of endangered species inspire to find solutions on how we can contribute in a positive way to support our planet and community wellbeing. Read more...
