The park’s newly redesigned Safari Lodge plays host to a magic show by Captain Fantastic.

The thrilling interactive magic show jam-packed with comedy, magic and games, and intrepid superhero Captain Fantastic takes place on Friday, March 25.

A barbecue lunch will be served and there is an Easter reward for completing the quiz trail. There’s also Easter cookie decorating and face painting, for a small extra charge.

People can book a session at either 12.30pm or 2pm. Tickets cost £32.99 per adult and £24.99 per child. Optional face painting or cookie decorating costs an additional £3 each or £5 if purchased together.

On the same day, The Gruffalo, the star of the award winning children’s picture book of the same name will be at the park.

The show will take place on the decking of the Mammoth Play Ark in the Foot Safari at regular intervals from 11.30am.

On Easter Monday, March 28, the adorable and popular Peppa Pig comes to the safari park.

Peppa Pig will be making special appearances at Woburn Safari Park throughout the day, meeting her little fans for a photo opportunity on the decking of the Mammoth Play Ark, in the Foot Safari.

Visitors don’t pay any more than the standard admission ticket price to see either the Gruffalo or Peppa Pig, but must book tickets online in advance for this event.

Children under the age of three can visit both The Gruffalo and Peppa Pig events for free.
