Dreamight at Chester Zoo 2018 22 june

received tonight

Hi

Hope all is well with you!?

We have set the date for this year’s Dreamnight for 22nd of June 6pm-9pm. Do you think we could have anyone attend please? We are inviting 200 families with children with life-limiting or life changing illnesses to visit the zoo for free. I’m positive the children would love it if we could have a few Star Wars characters for them to meet!   

I’ve got my fingers crossed,
May the force be with you! 
Chris

update from the zoo

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the late reply, just double checking a few things before I could get back to you! 

I’ve got a vision in my mind’s eye as to how the Star Wars element could play out for Dreamnight! We have a large indoor picnic area in the zoo which I can clear of picnic benches, leaving a space of approx.. 10m x 20m and, rain or shine, you guys can have that (great for an R2 unit to whizz around!). There is a neighbouring classroom with plenty of space/tables/chairs for changing/having breaks/storing kit. We can provide endless tea/coffee/water plus sandwiches & crisps, possibly a cupcake too!! Wink

All this is close to the staff car park where you could park and access the zoo.

The families come in from 6.00pm, but come in on the far side of the zoo, so if you could be ready for 6.15pm that would be fab.

Depending on numbers of the garrison attending, I was thinking if you all arrived together(ish) you could set up say from 3 onwards, giving a little time to take in a wee stroll and see some beasties as a thank you!?

Now…. say we get a good turnout from the garrison, I have a small budget and was thinking of getting a nice big black back-drop, possibly with some white LED lights poking through. CD player playing some Star Wars tunes, one or two fog machines, and possibly a Star Wars banner or two? 

How does all that sound?

Hope to hear from you soon,
Chris

what do you guys and gals think ????

Damn, we got married in the zoo a few months ago and they said I couldn't have characters as they scared the animals :)

Great stuff though, I'm in
