Gruffalo Photography

‘Oh Help! Oh no!..Its a Gruffalo’

Don’t tell my 3 year old son but I met the Gruffalo last weekend.

I was photographing the VIP/ press launch of The Gruffalo Discovery Land at Twycross Zoo.

The new 4 acre site, inspired by The Gruffalo, the bestselling children’s book by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, features real life animals, animatronics, film clips and much more. Visitors will encounter Fox, Owl, Snake, Mouse and the Gruffalo along their interactive journey through the deep, dark wood.

As well as members of the regional press, local celebrities enjoying the day with their families included; Jamelia, Lady Leshurr, actor Katie McGlynn and Birmingham City footballer Lukas Jutkiewicz.

I had heard a lot of scary things about the Gruffalo..’terrible tusks, terrible claws, terrible teeth in his terrible jaws’..he turned out to be a friendly, helpful and co-operative model (just don’t mention ‘Gruffalo crumble’!).

The Gruffalo Discovery Land, opens from Saturday 9th April 2022 at Twycross Zoo.
