Do you fancy some festive fun with a difference before Christmas?

Reaseheath College’s Zoo is open for two weekends in December and the entry fee will include a visit to Santa’s grotto, a Christmas gift and a festive themed trail around the animal enclosures.

Winter wallabies, festive foxes, merry meerkats, seasonal snakes, gracious goats and dashing donkeys are just some of the zoo residents getting ready for Christmas, and Reaseheath’s keepers will be on hand to talk about which present each animal would like best from Santa.

The campus zoo, in Nantwich, Cheshire, is based at Reaseheath’s Animal Centre, one of the most advanced college training centres in the country. It has over 1,000 animals which also include ring tailed lemurs, tapirs, spider monkeys, cotton top tamarins, birds of prey, rabbits, guinea pigs and a variety of reptiles, amphibians, fish  and insects. Part of the collection is housed indoors and there are picnic areas both inside and outside plus plenty of free parking.

Reaseheath’s Zoo is open on December 10 and 11 and December 17 and 18. The zoo opens 10am, last entry is 2.30pm.

Entry: £5 per adult; £4 per child; £16 per family including entry to Santa’s Grotto and a gift for every child.

Please note: We are planning to open the grotto between 11.30am and 2.30pm on each of the four days but please check these times at www.reaseheath.ac.uk/zoo before you come.
