Big Night Out - Tickets on sale now!
29 Jun 2013 – 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo will open after hours for a unique family night out on Saturday 29th June 2013!
With a huge variety of animal talks, entertainment and activities, there’s something for everyone.
So what's on?
Our keepers will astound you with fascinating facts and amazing anecdotes in our exciting programme of animal talks, feeds and demonstrations.
The Conservation Station
Our keepers and vets will be on hand to answer all your animal questions and impress you with fascinating facts, like just how do we clean Lola the hippos' teeth??
The Mane Stage
Dance your way straight into the evening with a host of local musical talent, from the cool sounds of a Caribbean steel band to the feisty beat of samba and spectacular carnival costumes. These acts are sure to make this a night to remember!
Visit our transformation station on the main lawn and turn yourself into your favourite zoo animal. With face painting, masks, animal onesies and much more, get transforming and pose for the camera.
The Feeding Frenzy
When you're feeling peckish visit the ‘Feeding Frenzy’ food festival on the main lawn, where you’ll be spoilt for choice with everything from a mouth watering hog roast to chicken tikka complete with poppadum’s and mango chutney.
If it’s a slower pace you’re looking for then head up to the Lookout Café. Sit back and relax to the cool sounds of jazz with the highly acclaimed Brandon Allen, all with the spectacular backdrop of the sunset over the Chiltern hills...
After all that you won't want to miss our spectacular finale. As the event draws to a close you'll be clapping along to amazing acrobatics and fire limbo!
This is set to be a visit to the Zoo with a difference!
