Panto comes to DZG!

Panto season is nearly upon us and we helped sprinkle a little DZG animal magic into the launch of Wolverhampton Grand’s Jack and the Beanstalk.

As panto partner once again for this year’s festive family show, we welcomed the show’s stars, Gareth Gates, dame Ian Adams and Doreen Tipton to the Castle Hill site yesterday for the first of two launches of the Christmas extravaganza.

The trio, in their colourful costumes, posed for press pictures outside the farm with our newest additions to our new-look barn, before Gareth, who will star in the lead role, Jack, popped into Lorikeet Lookout to meet some of our cheeky residents!

DZG Press Officer, Rachel Hickman, said: “It was a fun morning as we helped launch this year’s Wolverhampton Grand Theatre pantomime with Gareth, Ian and Doreen and we’re looking forward to the show, which sounds like it’s going to be another Christmas cracker!”

Jack and the Beanstalk runs from December 9 until January 14, 2018 and tickets are already on sale.
