Dudley Zoo to help panto be a roaring success

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre and Dudley Zoological Gardens have announced a partnership that will see the two family-friendly attractions unite this festive season. 

The 80 year-old zoo and the Grand's annual family pantomime is a tradition that spans over 120 years at the theatre. Dudley Zoological Gardens have now extended their sponsorship of Grand Theatre pantomime for a further two years, making them the local partner until at least 2019/20 season. 

The Grand Theatre pantomime, which this year will see Jack and The Beanstalk take to the stage, attracts thousands of families to Wolverhampton each year, as does a collection of the world’s rarest animals who find their home in the grounds of an 11th Century castle at Dudley Zoological Gardens. 

Grand Theatre Associate Director of Development & Communications Vicky Price said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Dudley Zoological Gardens will continue to collaborate with us for the next two years of Pantomime. 

"Both venues provide magical experiences for children and their families and together we can continue to promote this wonderful offering in Wolverhampton and The Black Country ” 

Dudley Zoo’s Winter Wonderland kicks off from December 1st until Christmas Eve and locals can head along to see Santa in his grotto set within the walls of Castle. Locals will also be able to stop off to greet his reindeer in the courtyard. 

This year’s pantomime Jack And The Beanstalk, which stars Gareth Gates, Lisa Riley, local icon Doreen Tipton and several others, opens on Saturday 9 December 2017 and runs until Sunday 14 January 2018.
