Acamar Films Partner With ZSL London Zoo to Create a New Bing Experience
Acamar Films have teamed up with ZSL London Zoo to bring even more fun to the iconic attraction this autumn, with activities themed around the much-loved pre-school show Bing.
The partnership continues Bing’s growth in the live events and experiential sector to create treasured and memorable moments for Bingsters and their families.
ZSL London Zoo will host a variety of themed activities, free to its visitors, from 20th September to 31st October 2021.
These include interactive storytime sessions throughout the day where young children can join Bing and Flop in learning about animals, with fun actions for them to join in with. There will also be a themed self-led Activity Trail around the zoo which features a series of clues and interactive activities at each station. At the end of the trail, families can celebrate their visit with a photo opportunity alongside Bing and his friends.
Kirsty Southgate, Director of Promotions & Partnerships at Acamar Films, said: “It’s an exciting time for Bing and we are thrilled to welcome ZSL to the programme. We hope our Bing experience at London Zoo will encourage young children to build a lasting connection to animals and the natural world.”
ZSL London Zoo Chief Operating Officer, Kathryn England, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming Bing and Flop to ZSL London Zoo this autumn, supporting our mission to engage the next generation of young animal lovers with the importance of wildlife. Bing fans will be invited to go on a journey of discovery, exploring the value of nature, surrounded by more than 20,000 animals – while making lasting memories during a fun-filled family day out.”
Produced by Acamar Films, with Dublin-based studio Brown Bag Films, Bing has seen extraordinary success since it launched in the UK in 2014, winning the International Emmy for Best Children’s Programme, the Writer’s Guild Award for best writing in a children’s programme, and a BAFTA nomination for best children’s programme. Adapted specially for television, from the original books by Ted Dewan, Bing celebrates the joyful, messy reality of pre-school life and finds the big stories in the little moments. Bing is broadcast in 130 territories worldwide and continues to “move and delight” Bingsters and their grown-ups through an increasing range of award-winning films, books, magazines, apps, consumer products, digital, live shows and cinema experiences. www.bingbunny.com
