Over 70's visit Free December 2022

18th Jan 2023

Over 70’s visit the Zoo for free from 1-21st December 2022.

This December Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is celebrating the local community with a range of family friendly and sustainable events as well as the return of the popular over 70’s go free offer!

For the third consecutive year the zoo is inviting over 70’s to visit between 1st and 21st December with the aim to support older people at what can be a lonely time of year. We are encouraging visitors to reach out to older relatives, friends or neighbours and to bring them along to visit the zoo together. Christmas is a time of joy and light for many but can be a lonely time especially for older members of the community.

The zoo’s initiative was inspired by the Age UK campaign to help make Christmas a little brighter for a lonely older person. According to the charity almost 1.5 million people feel lonelier at Christmas than at any other time of year.

“We are committed to welcoming and including all members of our community here at Noah’s Ark and we are looking forward to seeing lots of guests at this special time of year. We are hoping that this offer encourages those who aren’t normally able to visit us to come and enjoy a warm festive welcome and spend time with friends and family,” said Larry, Managing Director. 

Following huge news coverage of the increased costs in heating homes the zoo has created a designated Warm Space for December in the Food Barn. This area will be kept warm for visitors with special Winter Warmer meals cooked by Head Chef Gary. These winter warmers will include hot soups and classic favourites such as shepherd’s pie at discounted prices for pensioners.
