Chester Zoo’s gardens will be brought to life with Wild Worlds festival this summer.
Set to welcome more than 800,000 visitors, Wild Worlds is Chester Zoo's first ever large-scale gardens and science festival and takes place this summer.
The Wild Worlds festival has been inspired by the beautiful world of plants and animals at the zoo as well as its people - experts in wildlife, science and conservation.
Included in the festival is The Natural Honey Bee Garden - special observation windows opening up the world inside the hive, The Dormouse Garden - revealing the secretive lives of these rare and sleepy rodents and Awe-Kids - a fun, walk-through, mini sensory safari, which brings plants to the fore!
There are also many more interactive artworks as well as a major programme of events. The zoo's 125 acres of zoological gardens will be transformed by a journey of discovery through previously unseen new worlds, extraordinary spaces, specially commissioned creations and new artistic collaborations.
Phil Esseen, the zoo’s Curator of Botany and Horticulture, said: “Whether people are looking for an entertaining day out or an enriching place for discovery or contemplation, Wild Worlds will deliver stand out experiences that everyone will want to tell their friends about!”
