WEST Midland Safari Park has announced that Hey Duggee will be coming to the visitor attraction for three dates over February half term.

The popular children’s character, who can be seen on CBeebies, will be making personal appearances at intervals throughout the day from February 22 to 24.

Families will be able to take part in either a “Meet & Greet” or a fun-filled “Stick Song Activity”, at selected times, based in the Park’s onsite venue, Treetops Pavilion.

PR and events officer, Bethan Davis, said: “We’re really excited to have Hey Duggee here with us for three dates this half term. Duggee is really popular with both kids and parents alike and you’d be hard pushed to find a parent that hasn’t at some point had the “Stick Song” stuck in their head.”“Duggee will be making five appearances throughout the day, including three ‘Meet & Greets’ where there will be the opportunity to take photos. Alternatively, there will be two ‘Stick Song Activities’ which guests will need their dancing shoes for, as they bop along with Duggee and his friend, to some Hey Duggee classics. As Hey Duggee is so popular, we do urge families to arrive early and if they’re not lucky enough to meet him, he will be waving to all of his fans.”

Entrance to the Hey Duggee appearances is subject to availability and guests will be admitted to Treetops Pavilion on a first come, first serve basis.

As well as the opportunity to see Hey Duggee, the park will be open daily from February 19 for its summer season, with the Adventure Theme Park reopening too.

Hey Duggee appearances, the four-mile safari, walk-through exhibits, animal talks and encounters, are all included in the standard admission charge.
