Easter Chicks and Bunny Weekend!

We’ve been busy making plans for Easter with a host of special events planned for our visitors to the Rodbaston Animal Zone based in Penkridge.

The Animal Zone is open every day during the school holidays and as an added bonus on Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday you can have a special encounter with the bunnies and chicks in the indoor barn. The five Bunny and Chick sessions will take place from 10.30 to 3.30 these sessions are very popular and places will be restricted so arrive early to secure a place. 

David Riley, Animal Zone Manager, said “The weekend is designed to encourage visitors to see our wonderful animals. It is a great family event and visitors can see how we care for these animals.”

These sessions are really popular so we do strongly suggest you book your places in advance.
