Members Preview Evening

Friday 29th November

The Snowmanâ„¢ and The Snowdog

The Snowman™ and The Snowdog Bricklive Tour

Friday 29th November • 5pm – 8pm

Pass holders are invited to an exclusive Preview Evening on Friday 29th November for the launch of The Snowman™ and The Snowdog official BRICKLIVE Tour, before opening to the general public during normal zoo opening hours on Saturday 30th November to Sunday 5th January 2020.

Banham Zoo is the first zoo in the world to host this new brick trail inspired by the much loved animated film The Snowman™ and The Snowdog, the sequel to Raymond Briggs’ classic picture book The Snowman™, which was first published in 1978.

You will be wowed as you meet your favourite characters from The Snowman™ and The Snowdog. The brick trail consists of 16 wonderful models, made from brightly coloured toy bricks, which will be located at various locations around the zoo. Four large models will give you memorable photo opportunities and 12 smaller models will create an interactive festive trail around the zoo for you to enjoy.

To help you get into the festive spirit there will be mince pies, mulled wine and a selection of hot & cold drinks and snacks available for you to purchase in our Pavilion Café, and a local group of carol singers will be entertaining everyone with a selection of Christmas songs under the canopies adjacent to the Café.

Additional tickets to the Preview Evening can also be purchased for your family and friends at £5 per person.

We are staying open ’til late every Saturday Evening

Each Saturday evening from the 30th November to 21st December the zoo will stay open ’til 7.00pm for our visitors to enjoy The Snowman™ and The Snowdog official BRICKLIVE Tour under the festive illuminations.  Father Christmas will also be in residence.
