Celebrating our bostin’ heritage

We’re celebrating our bostin’ heritage today as it’s Black Country Day.

And to show our pride in the region, we’ve got the black, red and white flag flying atop one of the Midlands’ best-loved landmarks.

Zoo Director Derek Grove, said: “”This year Dudley Zoological Gardens celebrates its 80th anniversary and we’re proud to have had such strong roots in the Black Country for the last eight decades.

“We’re delighted to be flying the flag in celebration of our heritage above the 11th century Dudley Castle, in the heart of the zoological gardens – where it can be seen for miles around.”

And we’ll continue celebrating over the next few weeks, as our Outreach team visit a number of forthcoming Black Country Festival events, with some of the zoo’s smallest animals, face painters, biofacts and children go free vouchers.

Come and visit our stand at OH Festival in Old Hill tomorrow (Saturday 15) and Wolverhampton Fiesta on Sunday, as well as the Brier Fair in Brierley Hill on Saturday 22 and Coseley Black Country Day on Sunday 30.
