Dream Night 2022

Join us for a night of fun at the Zoo!

We are delighted to let you know that Colchester Zoo has invited EACH to attend Dream Night – 2022 which is to be held at the zoo on Friday 10th June between 6pm and 9.30pm.  On this very special night Colchester Zoo is closed to the public but open especially for families from local children’s hospices to allow your children the greatest chance to have a truly special and memorable evening.

The proposed programme will include; animal feeding, getting up close to a number of different species as well as a range of other entertainment and surprises.  The activities will be designed to give the children a unique experience; much more than would be possible in a normal visit.

The zoo is fully equipped with disabled and first aid facilities and a wet weather programme will also be devised, if required.

Families will be required to make their own travel arrangements but Colchester Zoo is generously providing entrance, refreshments and entertainment as well as their staff volunteering their time on the night.

We have a fixed allocation of tickets for 2022 so you will need to apply for tickets using the ‘Sign up now’ button on the right.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Friday 6th May.  After the deadline EACH will allocate invitations according to the stated criteria.  If you are successful, your invitation will be sent with a confirmation letter closer to the time.

If you have any questions about the event, please email

*Please note that this event is for lead children and their families.*
