A furry, slithery and crawling menagerie of animals will be appearing at the Alan Shearer Centre this week.

The Scales 'n' Tails - Zoo That Comes To You will be calling at the centre on Friday when our members will be able to look at, listen to, and even touch a range of insects, reptiles and small mammals.

Come along to our educational animal encounters experience between 3pm and 4pm for the chance to meet a millipede, hold a hamster or sidle up to a snake ...!

The event is part of the Alan Shearer Centre's range of summer activities and is free and open to all ages. Contact the centre on 0191 267 8118 for more details and to book your place.
