Patriotic celebrations

The borough’s St George’s Day celebrations promise to be a roaring success as the annual festival returns to DZG.

Between 3pm and 7pm on St George’s Day – Sunday, April 23 – we’ll be hosting a patriotic extravaganza in the 11th century Dudley Castle courtyard, complete with medieval re-enactors,  dragons, children’s entertainers, crafts, story telling and stilt walkers.

There will also be extra talks and feeds at the penguin and sea lion enclosures for families to enjoy and St George’s Day themed refreshments will be available from the Queen Mary restaurant.

Zoo Director, Derek Grove, said: “We’re delighted to be teaming up with Dudley Council in celebrating the legend of St George again this year and look forward to welcoming borough residents to DZG, for what promises to be another great event.”

The tickets which are only valid from 3pm cost £2.50 per person. Children 0-2 years are free.

Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, said: “Last year’s event was a great afternoon and we are pleased to be working together with DZG again this year to bring St George’s Day to life.

“A limited number of tickets are available, so I would urge people to book now and avoid disappointment.”
