The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland has announced the return of Edinburgh Zoo’s popular After Hours events for summer 2021. Staff are inviting visitors to come to the zoo at night while also supporting critical fundraising efforts to feed and care for the animals and protect threatened species around the world. As well as the chance to see how the animals spend their evenings, the event will include outdoor catering and bars, a digital trail around the zoo and live music sets on the park’s main lawn.  

Jonathan Brown, events and experiences manager at Edinburgh Zoo said, “After Hours is a great opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of Edinburgh Zoo in the summer evenings. As we come out of lockdown and look to create new exciting memories with the ones we love, these events provide a unique nightout in the city.”  He went on to say Lots of our animals, including our lions and new otter pups, are more active in the evening and guests can take part in a brand-new digital trail to learn more about them while enjoying our outdoor catering and live music on the main lawn.   

All of our daytime health and safety measures will still be in place, including extra toilets, social distancing and extra hand-washing stations. 

Edinburgh Zoo After Hours will run on select Friday and Saturday nights from 4 June – 14 August. Tickets cost £18 for adults and £11 for children.
