Grab yourself a ticket to the Zoo after hours for a truly unique Friday night.
(From 6.30pm - 10pm - last entry at 8pm.) Animal houses close at 9pm.
Explore the zoo after hours: See your favourite animals like never before, enjoy an ice cold drink watching the gorillas as the sun sets, get splashed by a seal and share a selfie with a meerkat - a Friday night out with a difference!
9,500 cheeky characters: From the gorgeous red panda to amazing stick insects, you're bound to come away with a solid list of new favourites!
Extra animal talks: Meet our rangers and get to know our meerkats, penguins, seals and lions.
Plants galore: 12 acres of probably one of the most instagramable places in Bristol, get that perfect profile picture among our 100,000 plants (approx!) or grab an ice cream with the grass between your toes.
Live music from 8.30pm: Dance along to acoustic covers of top hits, bound to get your paws clapping and tail feathers shaking. Make your way to the main lawn at 9pm to grab a beer and get your groove on.

Mouth-watering Food & Drinks: Grab a tasty treat from our BBQ (weather permitting) or other food outlets to enjoy whilst you listen to the music.*
