Love Your Zoo Week Coming Soon-30th May.

Friday, April 29th, 2011

Both of you who read our blogs and websites know that Old Macdonald’s Farm is more than a farm and is in fact a Zoo too. (Poet laureate, eat your heart out, I rhyme, all the time….see, did it again!)

This year for the first time, BIAZA (the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) is staging “Love your Zoo Week” when we, and other members, will be staging special activities for visitors to enjoy, and as this co incides with the late Spring School Holiday Half Term is is a wonderful time to visit us at Old Macdonald’s Farm and meet our collection of farmyard favourites and exotic animals, and we will be launching Old Macdonald’s Fascinating Facts Trail around the farm, so you can learn about the many exciting creatures you meet (not the staff, even though they are quite exciting).

Also there will be special opportunities to meet and pet some of your favourites throughout the day, and finally on June 5th we have our annual Starlight Day where we raise money for children who are seriously ill and their families through our favourite children’s charity.

More news to come on this website and on as we get nearer to the week.
