DREAMNIGHT AT CHESTER ZOO

Once a year, we run a very special event here at Chester Zoo. We open our gates for the evening and welcome 200 families with children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions to enjoy an evening together. We work with our local charities who invite families on our behalf to the evening. If you’re a family and wondering how you can get an invitation, then please do contact the charity who support you.  We take nominations for local charities from our colleagues, so we are always supporting causes close to our hearts. If you’re a local charity, please be aware that we don’t consider applications from charities directly. If you would like more info, get in touch with the Dreamnight committee here

A DAY TO REMEMBER

Creating memories as a family is ever so important.  We love that we’re such an important part of people’s lives, and value our place in family traditions.

With this in mind, when someone is receiving palliative care we are happy to offer ‘A Day to Remember’ to make it as easier for families to visit. To find out more about the criteria and how to apply, please fill in the below form.

TALK REQUESTS

We’re lucky to have a team of experts who are passionate about conservation and want to spread our mission of preventing extinction into the community. Wherever possible, we can explore the opportunity for a member of the team to speak at your event, although please be aware this will depend on availability and location.  Fill in the below form and follow the instructions and we’ll look into your request.

TICKET REQUESTS FROM OTHER CHARITIES

We’re a registered conservation and education charity and therefore we have to carefully monitor the number of free entry tickets that are issued to other organisations for fundraising events that do not directly benefit the zoo or our charitable mission.
