Calling all pirates and princesses!

It’s just three weeks to go until we get ready to welcome hundreds of pirates and princesses to our under-fives picnic party.


But there’s still time to join the DZG adventure and come along for a day of magic, entertainment and fun.

Our Princess and Pirates under-fives Picnic Party takes place on Wednesday, June 24th and Thursday, June 25th, when the Castle courtyard will be filled with entertainers and fun activities for little ones.

Entertainment includes puppet shows, magic acts, bouncy castles, balloon modelling, story telling and face painting.

There will be chance to meet DZG’s tiger mascot, Jambi, as well as getting up close to furry friends in animal encounters, feeds and talks.

The highlight is a fancy dress parade in the Castle courtyard, when all princesses and pirates will be invited to show off their colourful costumes and everyone taking part will be presented with a medal.

DZG Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “Our under fives days are always really popular and we’ve got a real action-packed programme this year.

“So make up a picnic, grab your pirate patches and princess tiaras and come and join us for a fun-filled day!”


Goody bags will be on sale and there is also a tombola with chance to win cuddly animals and other DZG souvenirs.

Advance tickets are available, priced from £4, by calling 0844 474 2272. Tickets will also be available on the day priced £6 for children aged between two and five and £6 per adult.
