DZS reopening update

We’re delighted to confirm that we’ll be reopening on Friday 4th December! This is to allow us to get ready for our exciting new event, Christmas Zoo Nights.

Tickets are available for both day visitors and our Christmas event here – https://bit.ly/DZSTickets

Lockdown has been difficult for us and we’ve not managed to raise the £11,500 a week we needed. We’ve also not heard whether or not we’ve been successful in receiving help from the government’s zoo support fund.

We’re going to have to continue to rely on the job retention scheme, so to do this, we’ve made the decision to stay shut from Tuesday – Thursday in the first two weeks of December. This will help us save money on running costs at a time of year when we have lower visitor numbers.

We will open full-time from Monday 14th December, in time for the Christmas school holidays.

If you would like to support us, please consider making a donation today – http://bit.ly/DZSAppeal

We cannot wait to welcome you all back and start to celebrate Christmas in zoo style!
