Christmas magic at Dudley Zoological Gardens






At Dudley Zoological Gardens there’s Christmas magic in the air . . .
Our Winter Wonderland package, which runs form December 5 to Christmas Eve, includes a magical train ride past the world’s rarest animals as you head to visit Santa in his Jack and the Beanstalk-themed grotto set within the walls of 11th century Dudley Castle. After receiving a special gift from Santa it’s off to our fun-filled Glow in the Dark Christmas Show before taking in a tour of the site.
The festive package includes admission to DZG and a chance to see favourite species and find out what they’re up to this Christmas. You’ll also meet Santa’s reindeer as they prepare for their busiest night of the year! If you’re stuck for ideas for presents why not treat your family and friends to Keeper for a Day or Little Zoo Keeper experiences, shadowing DZG keepers as they go about their daily duties caring for some of the most exotic and endangered creatures on the planet. What about adopting a Sumatran tiger or Rothschild giraffe? Or maybe a cheeky lemur or cute Humboldt penguin? We’ve nigh on 200 species to choose from and all adoptions help fund vital conservation programmes right here at DZG. How cool is that – ‘owning’ your own Asiatic lion or hairy scary tarantula without any vets fees! There’s also a range of Close Encounters where you get to feed red pandas, sealions or meet our orangutans!

DZG membership makes another excellent gift that all the family can enjoy and offers unlimited accessto the zoo AND castle! And our 2013 calendar is full of favourite images throughout the year and makes a great stocking filler.
There’s something for everyone at Dudley Zoological Gardens, Castle Hill, Dudley– visit to find out more.

Neighbours News is a non-profit voluntary organisation, formally constitued as a group since September 1999 on the Castle & Priory Ward in Dudley. We produce community newsletters for residents. As of 2004, we have expanded to other areas (most of which are in high deprivation). We want to get a community newsletter for Brierley Hill circulating, because there is interest, however we need to find any potential funders and anyone who might be interested in sponsoring an edition. High Arcal School in Sedgley has sponsored an edition of the Oval & Tudor News in Upper Gornal, for example. We remove the official language and put it in plain English for people to understand, keeping them informed about local issues, training and job opportunities, developments, town centre events, etc. Our local distribution is carried out by community groups and the print group we use trains people with learning difficulties. We are based on the Pensnett Trading Estate, having relocated offices, due to the demolition work being done on North Priory, where our former premises were in Pine Road.
