Acamar Films and Wild Planet Trust have signed a partnership that will see Newquay Zoo and Paignton Zoo feature activities based around the multi-award-winning preschool animation, “Bing.” Between Jan. 20 and March 3, families can follow a new activity trail featuring characters from the series. On special days within the activation period, Bingsters will also be able to meet Bing and Flop. Visitors to Paignton Zoo can enjoy a “Bing” mini show with “Bing” products available for sale in both locations as part of the partnership.  

“Curiosity and exploration along with an understanding of the world and the consequences of our actions are important themes in ‘Bing,’” says Kirsty Southgate, director, experiential and promotions, Acamar Films. “This partnership gives us a beautiful way to bring those motifs beyond the screen. Wild Planet Trust recognizes the affection that young children have for ‘Bing’ and I cannot wait for families in the South West to discover more about the natural world with ‘Bing.’” 

“‘Bing’ is a series in which young children observe and learn how they can impact those around them and this focus on connection to each other and the environment aligns strongly with our mission,” says Matt Lewis, engagement manager, Wild Planet Trust. “We know our visitors are going to love meeting Bing and Flop and gaining greater understanding of animal species and the world through the activity trail.” 

Families will be able to find out more about the partnership as well as timings for the meet and greets and mini show by visiting the Bing Bunny website.
