Throughout this December, over-70s can enjoy free admission to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm
Guests over 70 can enjoy free admission to Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm from December 1st to 31st and enjoy a line-up of family-friendly and eco-conscious events.
For the fourth consecutive year, the Zoo is inviting over-70s to visit between 1st and 31st December to support older people during what can be a lonely time of year.
Noah’s Ark is encouraging visitors to reach out to older relatives, friends or neighbours and to bring them along to visit the Zoo together. Christmas is a time of joy and light for many but can be a lonely time, especially for older members of the community.

The Zoo’s initiative was inspired by the Age UK campaign to help make Christmas a little brighter for a lonely older person. According to the charity almost 1.5 million people feel lonelier at Christmas than at any other time of year.
Larry Bush, managing director at the Zoo, said, “At Noah’s Ark, we deeply value and embrace every member of our community and we are always looking for ways we can extend our welcome even further. Our hope is that this offer encourages those who might not typically visit us to share in the festive warmth, creating cherished moments with loved ones.”
Bush added, “We’re eagerly anticipating the opportunity to extend our warm holiday welcome to everyone, ensuring this season is filled with togetherness and joy for all.”
