Pop singer-turned-TV star Michelle Heaton will be visiting ZSL Whipsnade Zoo on Wednesday (October 24) to launch Hullabazoo – the Zoo’s brand new adventure play centre.

The Liberty X star, along with nine-month-old daughter Faith, will be given a sneak peek of the animal-themed play centre set to open to the public on Saturday (October 27) – just in time for the autumn half term holiday.

Each element of Hullabazoo has been specially designed around different habitats, including the jungle and Antarctic, where little ones can to pretend to be penguins sliding down ice, primates swinging from branches, or bees buzzing from their hive.

The entire experience becomes a sensory journey through the world of animal play, allowing children to run, climb and slide – getting them active while having fun.

Michelle said: “My little girl, Faith, is just learning to crawl so we are constantly looking for fun, active things to do with her.

Hullabazoo is brilliant - the colourful, animal-themed equipment will entertain kids for hours and being in the heart of ZSL Whipsnade Zoo makes a great family day out even better!”

Hullabazoo is suitable for children aged up to 12 years old and is open 364 days of the year. Grown-ups haven’t been forgotten about either, as comfortable seating and a selection of food and drinks will also be available to enjoy.

Whipsnade’s Laura Duffy said: “During their trip to the Zoo, families experience a sense of adventure, wonder, nature, freedom and escapism. We hope Hullabazoo indoor play will replicate that.”
