Meet Mr Tumble at Drusillas Zoo

MR TUMBLE aka Cbeebies superstar Justin Fletcher will make a special appearance at Drusillas Zoo to open a new walk-through aviary.

Mr Fletcher will cut the official ribbpon for ‘Lory Landing’ this Sunday, May 29 – and families are invited to come along and meet him. He will also be performing songs in two special shows on the day.

Lory Landing is a walk through aviary, offering visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with a friendly flock of rainbow lorikeets; a brightly coloured parrot native to Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Australia.

Known for his slapstick routines and various comedic characters, Justin Fletcher was the first presenter of pre-school programmes to be awarded a BAFTA for his work. In 2008 he was appointed an MBE for services to children’s television and the voluntary sector.

Laurence Smith, manging director, said: “We are delighted that Justin has agreed to open Lory Landing and we look forward to welcoming such a popular personality to Drusillas. The day offers a rare opportunity for young fans to see the man himself and should be very entertaining and a great deal of fun.”
