A series of outdoor creations will form Chester Zoo's first ever large-scale gardens and science festival this summer.
From a botanist’s lab to oversized talking chairs and a dormouse garden, a wide range of specially commissioned artistic collaborations will inspire a connection between people and wildlife, gardens and science.
Running from 26 May to 30 September, nine interactive installations, on public display for the first time, will be complemented by a major programme of events to form the zoo’s new Wild Worlds festival.
The most popular day out outside of London, a day out at Chester Zoo is an adventure of discovery in 125 acres including beautiful award-winning gardens, where you will find 21,000 endangered and exotic animals.
Fully committed to conservation and education, the expert team not only provide the highest level of care for the animals but are on hand to engage with visitors ensuring a connection with the natural world. Tours and hands-on experiences plus daily animal talks will add to your animal packed day.
Restaurants, cafes and kiosks are located throughout the Zoo providing plenty of snacking options. Complete your day on the Zoofari Monorail, a Lazy River Boat trip and let the kids let off steam in the adventure play areas. A well-stocked gift shop provides plenty of choice for a souvenir of your day.
The Wild Worlds festival is free with normal zoo admissions. Zoo tickets can be purchased in advance via www.chesterzoo.org
