Bring your bear!

Under-fives are invited to bring their favourite cuddly toy to a teddy bears’ picnic party next month!

Taking place over two days – Wednesday, June 28 and Thursday, June 29 – the events in the castle courtyard are designed especially for our younger visitors and will include children’s entertainment, minibeast encounters, crafts and face painting.

There’ll also be the chance to meet DZC’s costumed mascots Jambi and Monty and don’t forget to bring your bucket and spades for some fun on ‘Ow Bin Ya’ Sands’.

Tickets cost £7.50 for adults and £7.50 for children aged between two and five and zoo admission is included, allowing you to also visit the animals across the 40-acre site – including our little ones – Bornean orangutans, Jim and Joe, Niffler the binturong, Button the sloth,  Charles and Camilla the black lemur twins and Peach and Bruno our reindeer babies!
