We had fun in the sun yesterday celebrating St George’s Day.
Partnering with Dudley Council we were joined by thousands of borough residents who secured free tickets to the event in the medieval castle courtyard from 3pm until 7pm.
Visitors were entertained by medieval re-enactors as well as children’s entertainer, Flip the clown and took part in St George themed arts and crafts.
There were also extra talks and feeds at the penguin and sea lion enclosure as well as history talks and ghost walks around the 11th century castle – which was decked out in England flags – for families to enjoy.
Zoo Director, Derek Grove, pictured above, left to DZG’s mascot, Jambi, said: “We were delighted to work alongside Dudley Council in celebrating St George’s Day this year.
“The day was a great success and it was wonderful to welcome so many people to DZG to celebrate our patron saint.”
During the morning, DZG’s outreach team also visited Dudley Market, as part of the day-long civic celebrations, with a variety of small creatures for visitors to meet.
