Zoo Pride: The first of it's kind in the UK

Are you the next king of the jungle?

Bristol Zoo is excited to be working with Bristol Pride to proudly host an over-18s evening of fun-filled entertainment.

Bring your friends and colleagues along to join 2000 other people from the LGBT community and beyond to an event that is a first of its kind in the UK. Taking place on Saturday 1st August, revel in the wide range of entertainment as the Zoo transforms into a festival of fun.

The event’s entertainment includes a silent disco, fabulous face painting, live art performances by the enthralling Tom Marshman, comedy from the award-winning, all-female improv group the Short & Girlie Show, live music from Wildflowers who supported Robert Plant and The Sensational Space Shifters last summer and South Wales’ favourites Best Supporting Actors.

An area of the Zoo will also be dedicated to all things circus with a burlesque show, stilt walking, juggling, acrobatics and more by Circus Uncertainty.

As if this wasn’t enough, the Zoo’s animal houses will be open, guests can check out animal talks and feeds and a return Zoo ticket is included in the ticket price.

Guests won’t go hungry or thirsty with gourmet street food and both alcoholic and soft drinks being served around the grounds throughout the night.

The Zoo’s main lawn will be under-cover in a big tent so this is a unique event not-to-be-missed whatever the weather. Gates open from 6:30pm with the event finishing at 10:30pm.

But have no fear, for the real party animals Zoo Pride continues at a special night safari at the Queenshilling on Frogmore Street. Gaydio’s DJ Craig Law will have the night roaring with club classics, funky house and anthemic grooves – free entry to everyone with a Zoo Pride ticket.

The event is sponsored by Gloden tanning & beauty, which will be at the event offering temporary tanning treatments and more.

All guests must be 18+ (valid ID required)

Editorial:  One wonders if Belfast Zoo would be willing to undertake a similar event, or if they would even be allowed by our politicians?
