What great parties!

Thanks to the thousands of under fives who joined our 80th birthday celebrations this week.

We threw two big birthday parties on Wednesday and Thursday to mark our anniversary, complete with puppet shows, animal encounters, crafts, face painting and tombola.

Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “We had two great days celebrating our 80th year with our youngest supporters.

“Wednesday’s weather wasn’t great, so we moved our entertainment indoors, but we were back out partying in the rain in the castle courtyard yesterday.

“The thousands of children who visited didn’t seem to mind the British weather and all looked like they were having a great time.”
