Half term mug zoovenir

School’s out for half term so there’s plenty of time for arty youngsters to design a zoo mug for our 80th anniversary!

We’re appealing for children aged 15 and under to come up with a unique picture for a celebratory mug that we can make into a limited edition zoovenir to sell in the Safari Shop.

Retail Manager, Isobel Blackwell, said: “We’ve already had some great colourful designs submitted, but there’s still plenty of time left to enter and it’s an ideal half term task!”


  • Incorporate 80 into the design.
  • Use bold colours – they stand out better on mugs.
  • Try to make your design as simple as possible.
  • Avoid lots of text.
  • Keep your design inside the rectangle on the application form. 
Download and print an application form HERE or alternatively pick up a form from the zoo entrance and farm barn.

Entries need to be submitted by email to memories@dudleyzoo.org.uk or handed into the zoo shop by March 31.
