Georgina with alpacas

A giraffe among the alpacas? Yes, on Saturday 20th July Georgina the Giraffe from 64 Zoo Lane will be visiting picturesque Beale Park  near Pangbourne on the banks of the river Thames in Berkshire .

Come and  meet the creator of 64 Zoo Lane -that’s me- and listen to  64 Zoo Lane stories at 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, 2 pm and 3:30 pm. Each reading will be followed by a drawing demonstration and craft activities. We’ll even be making a giraffe who’s incredibly tallllllllllllll. Readings and activities are included in the park admission fee. The Wallingford Bookshop will bring  64 Zoo Lane  books  to sell. I’ll bring my special signing pen and giraffe ears along  for the occasion!

Beale Park  makes a great day out for all the family with its animals, gardens, play and activities. For information  including admission prices and directions visit www.bealepark.co.uk or email or email nell@bealepark.co.uk.

There are lots of animals to discover. Here are some of my favourites:


Meerkat – a real one (you’ll also find yummy jelly meerkats at Beale Park)


Owl- I wonder who ruffled this chap’s feathers?


Capybara – sort of like a guinea pig but MUCH BIGGER

Beale Park has many quirky sculptures. I particularly like this buffalo one:

I hope to meet lots and lots of 64 Zoo Lane fans on July 20th. For regular updates follow  Beale Park’s event organiser  Nellie @PeacocksPompoms on Twitter.  If you have a query please contact Nell Williams, nell@bealepark.co.uk / Tel 07827 275973

And finally, I couldn’t resist drawing a rotund rodent for the occasion. So here she is: Carmen the Capybara, 64 Zoo Lane style. She’s rather charming, don’t you think?
