2nd July 2019

A roar-some free event is taking place here at Priory Meadow Shopping Centre this July.

Attending the launch event are some amazing animatronic animals, including a life-size lion, a giant gorilla and some mischievous baby apes.

Between 11am and 3pm you can come along to meet and greet these realistic animals, taking a selfie with a striking lion, stroking the baby chips and saying hello to a giant gorilla.

Can’t make the July 26th date? Don’t worry, the lion and baby chimps will be returning a month later, on bank holiday Monday August 26th. This time they will bringing their friend the cheeky orangutan.

There will also be FREE face painting at the event between 11am and 1pm.

Kids can GO WILD! every day this summer at the giant jungle themed sand beach, playing and making sandcastles, whilst you relax after some retail therapy on the new and improved larger decking area.

The beach will host various free events throughout the summer including a fun and games day with real life explorers and regular face painting. View the separate event listings here on the website for more details.
