The popular presenter will bring his one-man stage show to the zoo for select dates during the event Summer here at Marwell, which runs throughout August. His much-loved show will feature a bundle of veggie stories, gardening games and all the catchy nursery songs from the TV show, entertaining 'tiddlers' and parents alike.
Ben Faulks, who plays Mr Bloom, said: “I’m really excited to be bringing the fun from the Mr Bloom television shows to families throughout the summer months! To sum it up in the words of a famous aubergine: ‘Let’s sing and dance and have some fun!”
Skip into Summer and take part in our topiary trail with a floral twist around the zoo. Meet crazy botanist ‘Dr Chris Anthemum’ for his fun-filled weekday show. Little green-fingered gardeners will also have the opportunity to plant their own plastic plants or dig deep with an assortment of toy diggers at ‘The Big Dig Pit’ before taking a family #SummerSelfie in the giant Marwell deckchair to remember the day.
Becky Elliott, Marwell Zoo’s Head of Events, said: “We are thrilled to announce our exciting and interactive programme of events for 2018 which will keep the family entertained while discovering the wonders of the natural world. We’re particularly looking forward to our very special guest Mr Bloom visiting us for weekends throughout August!”
Mr Bloom’s one man show takes place on 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26 and 27 August.
