Celebrations for 85 years!

Come and help us celebrate our 85th anniversary next Saturday!

We’ll be marking the occasion with children’s entertainers, costumed characters, face painting, a meet and greet of small critters, games and competitions.
There’ll be an exhibition of zoo memorabilia and archive photographs in the Castle – including this one of the first animals arriving at the zoo – alongside a giant birthday card for guests to sign as well as an anniversary trail to follow around the 40-acre site.
Plus, keepers will be giving our animals birthday enrichment treats throughout the day too!
Remember it’s also our open-air cinema events next week too, with Pretty Woman showing in the 11th century castle courtyard on Friday (May 6) and Pulp Fiction on Saturday (May 7). Both evenings cost £12.50 per person and tickets are available on our website or by calling 01384 215313.
