Chester Zoo’s magical event The Lanterns returns for 2022!
The much-loved wintertime event sees visitors enjoy a magical trail through the zoo lit up by hundreds of illuminated animal lanterns, costumed puppeteers and theatrical performers – including a visit from Father Christmas and his reindeers.
This year a number of new features, including a life-sized orangutan in a dazzling UV jungle, a giant polar bear overlooking a magical fairy-tale castle and a stunning snow leopard protecting its mountain home, will take centre stage. The trail will also follow a new, longer route.
Extra tickets are now on sale for Chester Zoo’s ‘The Lanterns’ event, which will run on selected dates from Friday 11 November to Friday 23 December with entry slots available from 4pm – 8pm. Child tickets start from £12 and adult tickets start from just £15.
