Funds raised at this year's charity evening will go directly to the Friends and the proceeds will be distributed to wildlife conservation and education projects in accordance with the objects of the charity.

Gates are open to the public from 6pm and the zoo closes at 10pm. Admission to the Zoo-Do is at a special rate of £6.50 for adults, £4.50 for children (under threes free).
