Families and groups can experience an Easter extravaganza at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire and enjoy a brand-new, spring-themed event every day during the school holidays.

Throughout the Easter holidays, from Saturday 1 to Sunday 16 April, visitors will be able to enjoy Twycross Zoo’s all-new event, Hello Spring – a celebration of Easter.

Little animal lovers will be able to take to the skies and learn how to fly in Twycross Zoo’s first ever acrobatic-themed workshop. During the workshop, a team of acrobats will teach children lifts and tricks that are inspired by birds at the Zoo, before little ones have the chance to experience what it’s like to live with all feet off the ground on the child-friendly aerial hoop.

For those who love completing an egg hunt during Easter, look no further, as the keepers are inviting eagle-eyed visitors to complete The Great Twycross Egg Hunt during their visit. Detectives can pick up a guide on arrival before setting off on an adventure to spot several mislaid important eggs and learn all about the animals and birds at the Zoo who lay eggs.

Guests are also encouraged to keep their eyes peeled during their visit to spot new residents, Burt and Joyce – two eye-catching and interactive animal characters who will be soaring high in the sky during the Easter holidays. What’s more, on weekends during the school holidays, families can join in on Twycross Zoo’s Birds of Play dance-a-long and learn new dance moves, including the Great Grey Owl hop and Flamboyant Flamingo.

As well as enjoying the Hello Spring – a celebration of Easter event, families can discover hundreds of animals from around 80 different species in Twycross Zoo’s amazing animal kingdom. Visitors can come face-to-face with some of the world’s most endangered species – including rhinos and bonobos – and learn more about the Zoo’s ongoing conservation efforts to protect and preserve them.

Elsewhere at Twycross Zoo, guests can also experience The Gruffalo Discovery Land - a four-acre adventure which aims to inspire the Zoo’s youngest visitors about the importance of conservation and protecting the natural world. With games, animatronics, film clips and real-life animals to discover - including snakes, owls and butterflies - visitors to The Gruffalo Discovery Land will follow in Mouse’s footsteps along their interactive journey through the deep dark wood.

Twycross Zoo is set to mark its 60th anniversary this year and to celebrate, is inviting anybody born in 1963 to enjoy a free day out, as part of its ‘Celebrate Our History’ showcase. So those born in 1963 who are also celebrating their 60th birthday this year can head to the Zoo for a complimentary visit.
