This is your chance to explore Bristol Zoo after dark and experience the award-winning gardens in a completely new way, writes Keri Beckingham

Bristol Zoo’s Friday Twilights is back for another year! Don’t miss your chance to get closer to nature and experience the zoo like never before at a completely unique evening.

Taking place on Friday evenings throughout the summer, the popular event will see the zoo open their doors after hours and offer visitors much more than just an opportunity to see their animals and award-winning gardens.

As well as having the chance to spend an unforgettable summer’s evening exploring the zoo with friends and family, you’ll also be able to relax on the lawn and enjoy a live local band playing top tracks, as well as discover more about the zoo’s residents at the exclusive Friday Twilight animal talks. Plus make sure you come hungry, as there is going to be plenty of delicious food on offer! The Hide restaurant will be offering a delicious summer-themed menu, or you might prefer to grab a tasty treat from the BBQ instead.

There’s plenty on offer to keep the little ones entertained too. As well as having the chance to see some of the zoo’s furry friends from lions to red pandas and stick insects, they’ll also be able to transform into their favourite animal with fantastic
face-painting too.

Friday Twilights take place on 31 May, 21 June, 5 July, 19 July and 26 July between 6.30pm and 10.00pm, with last entry at 8.00pm. Tickets cost £7.50 (£6.50 for members), and must be booked in advance. All money raised from these events will be spent supporting Bristol Zoological Society’s charitable objectives.

Visitors should note that The Gorilla House will not be open on 26 July and that Twilight World will not be open for any of the events.
