The Mall Blackburn brings Blackpool Zoo to you!

23rd June 2011

Categories: Town Centre News

The Mall Blackburn is bringing Lancashire’s local zoo direct to its customers on Sunday 26th June.

For one day only Blackpool Zoo will be giving visitors to The Mall the chance to get up close and personal with its huge Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches from 10.30am until 4pm in Victoria Court.

The multi-award winning attraction will also be bringing a whole host of animal artefacts including genuine skeletons, skulls and shed skins from animals that hail from around the globe.

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “The visit from Blackpool Zoo is set to be a very exciting day and we are looking forward to welcoming them to Blackburn.

“We are sure that the Madagascan Hissing Cockraoches in particular will draw a lot of attention from our customers and staff alike.”

Jude Rothwell, Marketing and PR Co-ordinator at Blackpool Zoo, added: “The Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches are a firm favourite in our Creepy Crawley Corner at Blackpool Zoo and we are hoping the people of Blackburn and the surrounding area will give them a very warm welcome.

“The majority of people are surprised by the experience of holding them and it is sessions such as this that allow us to prove they are not at all scary!

“We are also bringing a collection of animal artefacts for shoppers to touch and learn more about.

“Our Zoo to You scheme continues to grow in popularity and we visit schools and nurseries all over the North West throughout the year.”

It’s going to be an action packed day of fun for the whole family so the people of Lancashire are being urged to put the date in their diaries for a really wild adventure in The Mall Blackburn!
