The historic Surrey Zoological Gardens will be reborn at a community festival for tomorrow and Saturday.
‘Animals’ will be brought back to Pasley Park in Manor Place on Friday from 7.30pm, via a lantern procession produced by pupils from three local schools and artist Harriet Hill. Actors from the People’s Company will also stage perform scenes and historical characters from the scene, as part of the Walworth Society’s Animated History tours.
On Saturday, the entire park will be transformed for a free community festival day, opened by Southwark Mayor Kath Whittam at 12pm. There will be a dog show at 2.30pm, with music from steel bands, DJs, choirs and dancers.
Catering will come across the world with different traders setting up shop, as well as a crafts market and kids zone. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
