SANTA’S hardest working helpers will be taking time out to meet crowds at Whipsnade Zoo.
At the daily Reindeer Talk, visitors can learn all about antlers, red noses and just what these animals really want left out on the fireplace this Christmas Eve.
Children can muck in at the elves’ workshop and help to prepare festive treats for the zoo’s animals – stuffing crackers full of treats for the chimps and making festive bird feeders to take home.
Festive fun is on offer every weekend in December and then from Saturday, December 17 to Saturday, December 24. To book tickets visit www.zsl.org/christmas
