    Birdworld is delighted to be supporting Love Your Zoo Week from Tuesday 30th May - Friday 2nd June 2017.

    This is a national initiative run by BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums) to raise awareness of the fantastic Zoos within our country.

    At Birdworld throughout the week the keepers will be carrying out lots of additional talks, feeding sessions and activities for some of the birds and other animals around the park. These include, an additional talk about the current babies at Birdworld and an exciting session on the park’s very own flamboyance of Flamingos - who have laid eggs at the park for the very first time this year. The keepers will also be carrying out our regular daily talks and shows such as penguin and pelican feeding and of course Birdworld’s famous Outdoor Flying Display. During the week at the Jenny Wren farm, visitors can see the sheep shearer at work and watch goat hoof trimming sessions on selected days. There will also be the opportunity to join the farm keepers with some extra feeding sessions and take part in some animal-themed arts and crafts and face painting throughout the week on Birdworld’s Safari Lawn.

    This spring, Birdworld has also launched its brand-new exhibit, the Terry Pratchett Owl Parliament. The impressive new display has been named in honour of the brilliant author, Sir Terry Pratchett due to his well-known love of wildlife and in particular, all species of owl. Created in collaboration with the World Owl Trust (WOT), the satellite exhibit will aim to educate and raise awareness of these amazing birds. Mark Anderson, Park General Manager at Birdworld, said: “We can’t wait to welcome visitors and take part in another fantastic Love Your Zoo Week this year. The park’s keepers are very excited to be hosting these extra activities to educate and entertain visitors of all ages about the fascinating and mysterious birds and other animals that call Birdworld home.”

    Open 10am until 6pm, last admissions are an hour before closing.

    Craft activities and face-painting to take place between 11am and 4pm.

  • City Life

    • Saturday, 29 April 2017 - Saturday, 17 June 2017 at 10:00 - 17:00
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery
    • Cost: Free

    City living can be an eye-opening experience. Any person who has lived in a city has had a crash course in life.

    The city never sleeps. It is expensive and noisy with busy streets and overcrowded tube rides. Yet, it is vibrant, surprising and energetic. City life is inspiring in its diversity and rich in history, architecture, arts and culture. The city is full of opportunity and a sense of endless possibility. Living in a city can be a love-hate relationship that often, one cannot imagine living without.

    The exhibition presents work by Mychael Barratt, Clare Caulfield, Helen Chatterton, Janet Curley Cannon, John Duffin, Raewyn Harrison, Colin Moore, Nick Tankard, Chris Wood, and many more.
