I.Z.E.S. 20th Anniversary, 2nd-3rd October, 2015
This year sees 20 years since the I.Z.E.S. was formed to celebrate zoos in the face of adverse rhetoric. To celebrate this anniversary we have organised a special weekend on the above dates at the Rare Species Conservation Centre and The Wildwood Trust. Friday 2nd sees an evening icebreaker at the Rare Species Conservation Centre with food and a chance to meet owner Todd Dalton. Saturday morning sees a swap/ meet of ephemera plus a look at this fascinating collection. In the afternoon we move to Wildwood to see their fantastic collection of European animals with an evening of food and film ("Great Zoos of The World" and "At Home in the Zoo" [Gerald Iles, Belle Vue]). Because of catering, etc. an idea of numbers would be useful, so an indication of possible attendance (to our address or email: raresoulvinyl@ btconnect.com) is much appreciated. A timetable and costs will be sent shortly to those who express an interest (no obligation!).
