Fairies and Pirates Ahoy!

A fun-filled family day out is on offer at DZG next month at the under-fives Pirates and Fairies Picnic Party!

The event, designed especially with little ones in mind, is taking place on Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday 20, with families invited to bring along a picnic and join in the fun and games.

Entertainment includes animal encounters, talks and feeds, story telling and magic and puppet shows plus the highlight of the day will be a Pirate and Fairies fancy dress parade with medals for all participants.

Other activities on offer include face painting, a bouncy castle, a pirates and princess show, balloon modelling, a tombola and goody bags!

DZG Marketing Manager, Julia Lockett, said: “We are looking forward to seeing lots of fearsome pirates and magical fairies visit us over the two days. There is plenty going on to keep children and the young at heart entertained, so sign up soon and come and join in the fun.”


Pirate trio two-year-olds Mckye Logan-Simon and Thomas Pick with one-year-old Charlie Pick from Queen Victoria Children’s Centre, in Sedgley, meet DZG Senior Keeper Kirsty Thornton and Honey the giant English rabbit.
