As well as our current touring work, The Zoo Co also offers bespoke events entertainment to businesses, organisations, festivals and individuals looking to inject a slice of creativity into their event or party.

Recent events work from The Zoo Co includes an 8 day installation of a site-specific halloween event at Groombridge Place’s Enchanted Forest, puppetry workshops, a poetry cafe and site-specific performance for the Bluehouse Festival (Oct 2014), a fully interactive 20-minute staging of ‘The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ at the Tandridge Village Fete, walkaround actors at Wilderness Festival and our very own, self-run, outdoor festival – ZooFest, which was received extremely well last Summer in Tandridge.

We also continue to support emerging artists by programming them as part of our semi-regular spoken word/ music/ sketch and comedy night ‘Don’t Feed The Penguin‘. If you would like to book a slot to perform at Don’t Feed the Penguin, please contact Nick on or get in touch via our contact page.
