Michaela Strachan brings her show back to Twycross Zoo

Giraffe Twycross Zoo

Animal lovers will be able to meet Michaela Strachan at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire as the popular television presenter comes back for another set of her ‘Really Wild Adventures’ shows. From 30 April to 2 May, the interactive show takes the audience on a wild journey full of rhyme, dancing, music and lots of fascinating wildlife facts.

The current face of BBC Springwatch is known for her love of animals and has travelled all over the world filming animal conservation projects in an effort to highlight the importance of these activities. Michaela’s rich experience brings her show to life with fun stories such as how dentistry is performed on polar bears or facts such as how far a spitting cobra can spit.

The show is filled with Michaela’s recollections of real-life encounters with animals and audience members are invited up on stage which promises to be both educational and lots of fun. Twycross Zoo proves to be the perfect setting for this show with many of its animals, such as orang-utangs, elephants, zebras and snakes, featuring in the rhymes and stories.

Sharon Leeson, Director of Marketing says, “We are very happy to have Michaela coming to Twycross Zoo again. Her show is extremely entertaining for children and helps us promote the importance of wildlife conservation to which the zoo is fully committed. We received a lot of positive feedback on the show last year and so are pleased that we can offer our visitors the chance to see the ‘Really Wild Adventures’ in 2016 again.”

Michaela Strachan will spend three days at the zoo from 30 April to 2 May, giving three shows a day at 11am, 1.30pm and 3pm, entertaining the crowds about animals around the world and environmental conservation. The show is included with zoo admission.

Twycross Zoo is open to the public from 10.00 to 18.00. For more information and to book tickets visit or call 0844 474 1777.
