Been to the zoo, seen the animals and think you have experienced all it has to offer? Think again…it’s time to see its really wild side!
Every Friday night throughout June and July ZSL London Zoo open their gates after hours for Zoo Lates. So, on a sunny Friday night last month I joined hundreds of other party animals to experience a night, at the ultimate urban jungle, for myself.
Don your tiger onesie or have your face-painted as your favourite zoo creature and find out what the animals get up to after everyone should have gone home.
As you enter this adults only event (that’s right it’s time for the big kids to enjoy the zoo) grab a drink..alcoholic of course and embrace your inner child at the adults only play area which includes an adult sized ball pit! Party like a penguin at the silent disco, and laugh like a hyena at the very funny and entertaining cabaret and comedy at Auntie Myra’s Swinging Safari.
Take a look around approximately 17500 creatures great and small, see the much loved and ever popular animals as they head to bed and the nocturnal creatures as they wake up, and with talks at several enclosures get to know them better than ever before!
Plus, like TOWIE’s Lydia and Debbie, take the opportunity to see the zoo’s newest residents, Sumatran tigers Jae Jae and Melati in the Tiger Territory exhibit. Here you can get closer than ever before to one of nature’s most amazing predators .. just don’t get too confident after a cider or three and think it is a good idea to try and get in and give them a cuddle!!
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the event it is now open for an added date at the start of August.
You haven’t truly had a wild night out in London until you have attended Zoo Lates!
Zoo Lates runs from 6-10pm and is an over 18s only event.
