The story of Halifax Zoo and Amusement Park – Illustrated Talk
Just over 100 years ago, Halifax had a Zoo. Opened in 1909, this early “theme park” at Chevinedge housed many wild animals, yet also had other attractions – the first cinema in Halifax, a roller-coaster, and a miniature railway. Tales abound of special event, including balloon flights and an early aeroplane display in the skies above. Then there was the escaped bear!
Homemade cake and refreshments served.
Doors open 2pm – Thursday 5th July – £3/£5 – Town Hall HX7 7BY
