Theatre & Stay: Lion lodge overnight stay plus Lion King musical tickets

Gold members, we're calling you to be in for a chance of a roar-some night in the heart of London! On Thursday 18 November 2021, we will be trialling a new adults-only overnight experience 'Theatre & Stay' which we'd love for you to get involved in:

  • Stay overnight at the ZSL London Zoo Lion Lodges for 2 adults, including breakfast in the Zoo

  • See the evening performance of the Lion King musical in the stalls of the Lyceum Theatre

  • Get this package at half the price in exchange for your feedback: Price for 2 adults at £175

For a chance to experience this unforgettable night on 18 November, all you need to do is tell us what you like most about being a ZSL member and upload a picture of you, by 31 October. We'll then select the nine best answers! The competition winners will be contacted in the first week of November to book the trial for £175 in total and can each bring another adult with them on the day.


Please note, this trial will run on 18 November only. No other days will be available.
