The relatively central suburb of Clifton is perhaps not where you’d expect to find the world’s 5th oldest zoo. But behind its tall walls lies a paradise of exotic species and animals from across the globe – there’s little wonder Bristol Zoo Gardens remains one of the city’s most popular attractions.

Every year, the zoo hosts a calendar of animal-friendly events to complement the extraordinary pull of its residents. And this summer, Digital Visitor has been given the pleasure of promoting the zoo’s silent disco, silent cinema night and ever-popular evening openings across social media.

Our event calendar is an incredibly important part of the continued popularity of our world famous zoo. Every year, our range of exciting events draw new and existing guests from across the city and far beyond.

Social media, now more than ever, will be critical to the success of these occasions. Naturally, we wanted to work with a Bristol-based agency and appointed Digital Visitor for their wide-ranging experience in the tourism industry. We can’t wait to see what they’ve got planned to sell out our events.

It’s always a complete pleasure to work with well-known and established Bristol institutions. In recent months, we’ve shown just how effective social media can be at promoting events across the UK, and we expect nothing different from our work with Bristol Zoo Gardens.
