3 days to go. . .

It’s been a busy few weeks in the courtyard as hundreds of excited children have passed through to visit Santa in his grotto in the 11th century Dudley Castle.


And with just three days to go until the big day, there’s not long to go now!

Father Christmas has almost collected all the children’s wish lists and is getting ready to leave the castle in the heart of the zoological gardens so that his magic elves can continue transforming the inside into Castle Creatures.


Set to be unveiled at Easter 2015, the new exhibit will feature an interactive medieval experience with live animals, including bats, rats and cockroaches.

The project, which is being supported by ERDF, will tell the story of the Earl of Dudley’s family and explain the history of the castle.

Watch this space as we unveil more in the coming weeks!
