Edinburgh Zoo opens after hours for two special nights of fun and entertainment
Edinburgh Zoo Nights is a brand new event launching this spring. It is an adult only after hours event on Friday 24th May and Friday 28th June 2013. Between 6-10pm, this is a ‘night out with a difference’. You will be able to enjoy a drink whilst visiting your favourite animals, but you can also enjoy the array of entertainment laid on just for you.
The events are a first for the Zoo and a first for Scotland.
The Budongo trail will be transformed into a vintage cocktail tea party with stand-up comedy in the lecture theatre; the central lawn will become a mecca for food and drink; Jungle Café will host the silent disco; education will be home to animal handling sessions; and street performers and musicians will pop up to entertain you along the way. Your taste buds will water with the food and drink on offer – tapas, champagne, seafood, Pimm’s, picnics, street food, cocktails, sushi, fish and chips and a BBQ.
Tickets cost £20 and £17 for members (members can also bring one guest at the discounted rate).
Normal opening hours: April – September 9am – 6pm, October and March 9am – 5pm, December – February 9am – 4.30pm.
Address: 134 Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh, EH12 6TS. Telephone:0131 334 9171.
