Friday Twilights return to Bristol Zoo Gardens

Visitors can see its amazing collection of animals from around the world, including its newest arrivals - the tree kangaroos - and wander around its award winning gardens as the sun sets. 

The event runs every Friday, from July 6 until August 17 and during every Friday Twilight evening there are a host of extra attractions including a lineup of live bands and circus acts.

 Paul Pritchard, marketing director at Bristol Zoo Gardens, said: “We’ve had evening openings at the Zoo for the past six years and they have proved really successful. Our visitors love these evening events - they are a time when memories that last a lifetime are made.” 

The evening will also offer children’s fun, with craft activities, face painting, games and more. Food, drinks and summer cocktails will also be served throughout the evening in The Hide. 

The Zoo’s popular Zooropia high-level walk will also be open during Friday Twilights, with an additional charge.

 Tickets for Friday Twilights are now available, priced at £5 each (£4 for Zoo members), from
