Happy 85th DZC!

Happy 85th anniversary Dudley Zoo and Castle!

We hope you’ll join us tomorrow for our celebratory event as we mark the zoo’s past, present and future.

There’ll be children’s entertainment, costumed characters, small critter encounters and face painting in the courtyard.

Visitors can also take a trip down memory lane with an exhibition of archive zoo photos and displays in Castle Creatures, where they’ll also be a big birthday card for visitors to sign.

There’s also an animal adoption up for grabs by completing an anniversary trail around the 40-acre site, so make sure you pick up an entry form at the entrance.

And we’ll have a packed programme of animal talks running throughout the day too, during which some of our species will be receiving enrichment birthday treats and presents.

Thank you for your continued support over the past 85 years and here’s to the next 85…
