Julia Donaldson’s Story Safari

19 August 2017 - 11:00

Join Julia Donaldson and friends (including the Gruffalo) at the Safari Park for a special day of events and activities.

It’s a story safari this Saturday as we play host to Julia Donaldson and friends (including the Gruffalo) with events, children’s activities and the opportunity to meet some very special guests.


The Ugly Five with Julia Donaldson

Julia Donaldson will be acting out her stories and songs in a one-hour performance in the Safari Park Marquee, which will include a sneak preview of her forthcoming safari-inspired book The Ugly Five..     This is a ticketed event organised in aid of local charity, Artlink Central and tickets have sold out.

The first show will start at 11am and the second show starts at 3pm.  Ticket holders are asked to take their seats 15 minutes before the show starts.


Meet the Keeper

Visit our Gruffalo Enclosure in Pets Farm for a special ‘Meet the Keeper’ talk at 11:00am and 1:00pm.  This 15 minute family-friendly presentation will offer a fascinating insight into the elusive creature and provide the opportunity to view it in captivity.

This event is included in the admission price and is suitable for all ages.


Scavenger Hunt

Look who’s hiding by the Gruffalo House!  Children of all ages are invited to take part in our scavenger hunt for the opportunity to win some fabulous signed Julia Donaldson goodies.
