Details

The Zoo Crew are putting on their dancing shoes and getting ready to party as they are hosting a special celebration which they’d like to invite you to – rumor has it there’s a new girl in town!

Join us on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June as we have a special party with the Zoo Crew! Puddles the Penguin, Milo the Meerkat, Sonny the Bear and Stan the Giraffe are very excited for the summer holidays to begin and to introduce you all to a new member of the crew – what better way than to throw a party!

Meet the Zoo Crew at 1.15pm each day on the terrace by The Hot Potato and enjoy singing, dancing, games and even get the chance for a photo with the whole crew together!

There’s no party like a Colchester Zoo Crew Party!
