VIP Gold Member Event

You are here


On Sunday, 27th September we are holding an exclusive event for Gold Members.

Join us on Sunday, 27th September for an exclusive VIP Gold Member event. 

With welcome drinks and breakfast pastries, you'll then be treated to an exclusive tour of the zoo as the animals are waking up. Meet their keepers, help feed the animals and see behind the scenes at breakfast time. It's then back to the Education Academy for coffee and presentations from senior zoo staff on the evolution of the zoo, the conservation projects we support and managing animals in the zoo world. After this, it's time to turn your hand to some DIY as you help us make enrichment for some of your favourite animals, and join us as we give it to them and see how they react. 

To attend the event you will need to RSVP (email or call 01253 830812) before August 31st. On the day, you will need to bring your Gold Membership card with you. 

If you have any dietary or other specific requirements, or are pregnant, please let us know when you RSVP.

I can't attend that day, will you be doing another day?

We have tried to plan the event for a quieter time of year, out of the holiday season. In giving advance notice, we hope that all our Gold Members will be able to attend on this day.
