See us in a whole new light this Christmas
Friday, September 14, 2012
We've taken the wraps off our festive treat which will see young and old alike taking an evening trip through the zoo's gardens and past life-sized animal lanterns.
Dominic Strange, our Business Operations Manager, said:
“The zoo is magical during the day but this Christmas we’ll be sprinkling some special extra magic and creating wonderful night time sparkle too.
“Friends and families will be able to take a special journey through the zoo with their own lantern to light the way.
"There’ll also be the chance to make a wish at our giant Cedar wishing tree and, of course, meet up with the main man, Father Christmas himself.
“It’s a completely different experience to anything that the zoo’s done previously and we hope it will light up everyone’s Christmas.”
Fruit Bat Forest will also be open for visitors to explore.
