The (more than) Slightly Exciting Family Day

The Safari Rangers from Chester Zoo will be with us all day, delivering free workshops for all the family so you and your grown ups can learn more about the star of the show: elephants! The Safari Rangers will bring a variety of artefacts to introduce you to the world of elephants (and their neighbours).

While the safari rangers will be bringing artefacts, they won’t be bringing along any live animals. The elephants would love to come to HOME but they’re far too busy messing up children’s houses! But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to take an elephant home with you because Little Angel Theatre Company will be leading puppet-making workshops so you’ll be able to make your very own Slightly Annoying Elephant.

And if all that wasn’t enough, we’ll be hosting a Bring the Family screening of the family favourite Rio so there are plenty of things to keep you and your grown-ups busy!

This event is presented by HOME and Chester Zoo
