About the event

After a successful debut tour, Dear Zoo the timeless children’s classic book returns to the stage in 2019!

Rod Campbell’s best-selling lift the flap book has delighted generations of young readers since it was first published in 1982. And has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide.

This production will delight all those who have read the book (both young and old) as it unfolds with child-engaging puppets, music and lots of audience interaction.

Join us at the Guildhall Theatre to see what the zoo has sent: the perfect pet – in the end!
