Find your way around; download the event map
Whether you want to stretch out on a picnic blanket, dance on the grass or sit on a seat you’ve brought from home, there’s a spot for you at Zoo Twilights.
We’ve divided the Twilights lawn into two main sections: closest to the stage is all about dancing and sitting on the grass or picnic rugs, and the back section of the lawn is for sitting on low-back chairs.
If you’re not sure where to go, just ask a helpful Zoo staff member. The lawn is equipped with big screens and superb sound, so you’ll have a great view no matter where you sit.
Seeing our animals
Your Zoo Twilights ticket gets you access to the Zoo from 5.30pm on the night of your show. The Zoo’s only open to Twilights ticketholders around this time, so it’s like having VIP access after the crowds have gone home for the day. Make sure you check out our Keeper Talks: 6pm at the elephants, then giraffes at 6.30pm.
A team of researchers led by the Zoo’s Animal Welfare Specialist monitor the animals during the concert series to evaluate how the animals respond to the event. This is an ongoing project. You may see some of our researchers out and about at Zoo Twilights studying the animal’s behaviour. In addition to this research, Zoo Keepers also carefully monitor the health and wellbeing of the animals before and after the concerts.
Our friendly Zoo staff will be available on the night to help find a spot that meets your accessibility requirements.
There’s an ATM located inside the Zoo near the Main Gate. Don’t stress if you’re cashless though; all food and drink vendors accept card payments.
