What’s On?

There will be lots of free activities for the kids, including face painting and colouring competitions, with amazing prizes to be won such as an exclusive behind the scenes VIP tour at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. YWP’s favourite mascot Victor the Polar Bear will be making a personal appearance throughout the afternoon to entertain the crowds, and special CBBC guest Andy Day will bring his love of dinosaurs and music to the stage in an energetic live show, which will have the kids singing and dancing along.
