Edinburgh Zoo Nights - Start your weekend with a ROAR!
Edinburgh Zoo Nights is an adult-only event where you can enjoy street food in a relaxed atmosphere, wander round and see the animals in the early evening and enjoy some entertainment to start your Friday night.
At this year’s events, you’ll get the chance to mingle with the dinosaurs after-hours. Explore the Zoo’s ‘Dinosaurs Return!’ exhibition – life-sized animatronic dinosaurs in their own lost world enclosure. Our Dinosaur Keepers will be on hand to answer any questions, we’ll have special talks by dinosaur experts, the chance to try out your palaeontology skills with fossil digs, and you will come across a few other dino-related surprises along the way.
Dates for this year's events are 29th May, 5th June, 19th June & 26th June, and tickets are now available to buy online.
In addition to the ‘Dinosaur Returns’ exhibition and the Zoo’s resident animals, there is also a host of street food and entertainment for you to enjoy:
‘Dinosaurs Return!’ exhibition // animal talks & encounters // silent disco // comedy // dinosaur talks // Innis & Gunn bar // Scottish street food // live acoustic music // cupcakes & coke floats // G&T-Rex from Edinburgh Gin // face painting // fossil digs.
Begin your early Friday evening in the relaxed atmosphere of Edinburgh Zoo Nights, and then go on to enjoy the rest of the night at Lulu’s on George street – free entry with your Edinburgh Zoo Nights ticket.
