A few half-term in London highlights
How To Hide A Lion
Iris has a brand new friend, but she knows her family and friends won't love him quite as much as she does. This story of a girl trying to hide a lion in all sorts of devious ways is adapted by Peter Glanville from Helen Stephen's children's story, and will feature songs by singer-songwriter Barb Jungr. There are two versions: one for todders ages 1-2, and another for kids ages 3-6.
Land of the Lions
Construction of this vast new exhibit began back in 2014. Two years on, the zoo is ready to rehome its pride of endangered Asiatic lions in this enclosure which is styled on the ruins of an amphitheatre-like lion temple. Visitors can get up close to the beautiful big cats thanks to newly installed 'windowless-views' created using fine wires and explore the park filled with rickshaws.
